How many times do I hear myself say, "where is that big orange binder?" or "has anyone seen that big orange binder?" The big orange binder has been accumulating recipes, kinspiration & original recipe cards tucked into plastic sleeves for my entire-almost-forty year existence. "The Big Orange Binder" is an organization attempt. It's a recipe with a story neatly packaged in a place where I'll always be able to find the ever-elusive . . . Big Orange Binder.

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

From my dear friend Mel, who takes this to pot-lucks and fills her children's tummies with this delicious concoction.  Perfect for soccer nights or late sports nights, since you can prepare it early & let it warm in the crock pot . . . .
