When I hear it I think of several things: first, there’s scallops, as in the seafood—totally delicious. Then there’s the scalloped shape that can live on the edge of a pair of shorts or on the collar of a woman’s blouse—always pretty and dainty.

Why Make Your Own Though Girl Scout cookies boxes say “trans-fat free,” the term is officially defined by the FDA as a food that contains less than 0.5 grams of trans fat per serving, meaning some varieties — including uber-popular Thin Mints, Samoas and Tagalongs — still contain trace amounts of the fat.

Chiles Rellenos Recipe Thanks for the recipe & deseeding/frying tips! I'm Chicana but I have only attempted the chile relleno (my *favorite* Mexican food) a couple of times, due to the many steps!
