My Trip With Mexican Coke

My daughter and a few friends are Mexican Coke addicts. Often you will see them at Costco buying it by the case since it's a bit cheaper to buy it in bulk. Recently, I was fortunately enough to be invited on a press trip to Karisma Generations in Riveria Maya to experience the hotel and all of the amenities they offer their guests. Guess what I found upon my arrival to the resort?! Since ... Read More Here...

Family History | Going Back to Our Roots

I love puzzles. As a child, teen, and even as adult you would find my nose in a book doing crossword puzzles, logic problems, and MENSA tests. Dolls were not for me as I like to solve problems and even to this day "I am known for solving problems." (For OTHER people!) When I was dating Bob and computers were starting to become popular (yes... THAT long ago), I even had puzzles and games on my ... Read More Here...

The Farm Las Vegas | Local Honey, Fresh Eggs…

Living in the northwest area of Las Vegas often gets an eyebrow raised as most people prefer to live in Henderson or the Summerlin area. Not me! I want to be near the mountains, above the The Strip for awesome views, and large lots for homes. Yes, it's a bit more "rural" than other parts of town but that is A-OK with this family as we enjoy the amenities that come along with living here. One ... Read More Here...

Bob makes some amazing black beans and after looking at their website, looks like they took his recipe! LOL This black bean recipe is great wrapped inside a tortilla, as a side dish, or on a salad. This is another recipe I used for our Chipotle Burrito Bowl copycat recipe for dinner the other night - use these ingredients for your family to choose from to build your own Chipotle Burrito ...

PF Chang’s Perfect Pairings

Thank you P.F. Chang’s for sponsoring today’s discussion and for my "mommy and me" lunch with my son! My goal was to take this opportunity to catch up with some girlfriends for dinner and cocktails but that didn't work out as most of them are on their awesome vacations or couldn't get a sitter. I can't do cocktails as I just started one of those dang prescriptions drugs that don't mix well ... Read More Here...

Flamenco Beach | Our Puerto Rico Day Trip

I have two articles that have been sitting in the hopper for over two months, one is a bucket list for countries in the world to visit and the other is about beaches in the world to visit. On the list for beaches of the world I was excited to see Flamenco Beach on the island of Culebra within Puerto Rico. Seeing this made me even more excited to visit Puerto Rico as it was 1) a new place to ... Read More Here...

Celebrity Chefs | Are Their Restaurants for Foodies, Tourists, or All Hype?

I want to preface this article with a few notes: My apologies for the photos --- they were taken with my phone as I didn't take my big girl camera with me and unfortunately these are not as clear as they could have been. The photos of the left overs are taken at home and they turned out a little better. I am gracious for the opportunities to dine at some of the finest restaurants in the ... Read More Here...
