Egg, Bacon and Hash Brown Breakfast Tacos

Brunch is the bomb dot com. I love that you can go savory or sweet, or both, and that it’s a meal that’s devoured later than breakfast (a total plus in this not-so-much-of-a-morning-person’s book).

Game Day Taco Dip

Does anybody else love eating appetizers? Best course by far, right? I most likely feel this way because appetizers (antipasto) are a main staple at every party my extended family hosts.
