    1. I got this locally at Midnite Pottery. What’s your pottery? Do you have a site or FB page that I can look?

  1. Lime crema for tacos. The recipe doesn’t match the pictures nor the recipe name. What happened? It talks about Greek yogurt or sour cream but the recipe contains a whole pineapple and jalapenos.

  2. I just don’t get it, sorry. The recipe says “Also, I used Greek yogurt, but you can use sour cream” but I can see nothing in the recipe. I’d be grateful if you’d advise the amount, and when it’s added? Thank you
