7 Spring Break Recipes To Bring The Party To You

March is the ideal time to pack-up shop and get away. Winter is supposed to be over, but somehow it feels like it's just getting worse. Unfortunately, some of us are no longer in a stage of life where taking a week off to drink tequila is acceptable or mandated by university scheduling.

I've put together 7 recipes that will help you cook your way to the tropics, have some fun with friends, and go to bed with your dignity still in tact. The tanning salon is optional.
