Don't Wait Buyers--- If It Feels Right--- It is.

I love helping buyers find their dream home. I don't always love when my buyers don't see the right one, right away. As a Realtor, many times we "know" the house before you do. A great buyer's agent should ask enough questions about your likes and dislikes and get to know how you live in a home so that when "The One" comes along we are ready to jump as quickly as you are!

The worst is when we "know" it and you don't see it until it is under contract.

Of course, I would never tell you you are missing out because that is rude and it isn't my job to talk you into a home. The thing is, this typically becomes the turning point in home buying. This is when you as the buyer realize that sometimes waiting is the worst thing you can do.

Like the time when I know I had to have this Leopard Coat I LOVED but knew husband doesn't care for animal prints so I left it at the store. Then I thought about it all night. I even dreamed about it. The nex…

Leftover Turkey Burritos


I am not the best food photographer so please forgive me but I will toot my own horn about my cooking. Douglas tells me I should be on Chopped. Although I think I win, yes I'm pretty darn confident in that, I am scared about being on TV. 

With Thanksgiving coming up and turkey will be leftover, I have a great recipe for you to try. We fried a turkey this past Sunday and it was wonderful that day but wow, what you can do with the leftovers is amazing.

What You Need: 

Three Cups Cooked, Chopped Turkey
1 Medium Onion Diced
1 Cup Quartered Cherry Tomatoes
2 Tsp. Taco Seasoning
1/2 Cup Water
1 1/2 Cup Taco Sauce
2 Cups Shredded Cheese Blend
10 Flour Tortillas

What To Do:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 

In a large skillet with a lid pour 1 to 2 tsp. Olive Oil. With the cook top on high, heat the oil until you can tell it has thinned out. It is hot now. Add 1/2 tsp salt and  1 tsp. pepper to the skillet. Add Onions. Stir the onions with the salt and pepper and let sit until the edges brown. Turn heat down, stir and let caramelize for ten minutes. Stir so the onions do not stick to the pan. 

Once the onions have cooked for ten minutes, add your chopped turkey. Heat for around two minutes. Add taco seasonings and water. Add tomatoes. Cover skillet and cook until water has absorbed. Remove from heat and add 1 cup of shredded cheese. Stir until creamy.

In a casserole dish, spread 3/4 cup of taco sauce to the bottom of the dish. Heat tortillas in microwave for 40 seconds. 

Spoon meat mixture down center of each tortilla; roll up. Place, seam side down, in dish. Place in dish. Reserve a small amount of meat mixture to place on top of casserole. With reserved taco sauce, spoon evenly over filled tortillas. Cover with foil.

Bake for 20 minutes. Uncover; top with remaining cheese. Bake uncovered for 7-10 minutes until cheese has melted and attained the brown look you like.
