We’re starting a weekly Facebook LIVE event every Wednesday and this week, we launched without a whole lot of fanfare. I was a little nervous but it was really fun! I made my homemade ranch mix and homemade taco seasoning. The response was huge and my inbox has been blowing up with people wanting the recipes, so here ya go!

If you missed the video, you can see it here, and stay tuned for a follow up video on YouTube where I show you how to package the mixes to give them as gifts! We’re a full service blog here, ya’ll. Don’t forget to LIKE the Chef Jocelyn page on Facebook to see more of our LIVE events!
