Reserve App Review + Dinner at Salt Air in Venice

dinner at Salt Air in Venice collage

Reserve is a new App that helps you make reservations at restaurants and even helps you pay the bill. Well, it doesn’t pay the bill for you, but if you use the App, you won’t be asked to pay the bill at the restaurant; it will be taken care of via your mobile device. I tried out the App recently and I was impressed. It was convenient and it introduced ... Read More »

Ice Cream For Dinner Thanks to Dreyer’s Frozen Custard

Santa Monica Pier Carousel

We love dessert around here so when I asked my boys if they wanted to have frozen custard for dinner, they looked at me like I was crazy for even asking. Dreyer’s Frozen Custard and Real Simple Magazine hosted a group of bloggers at the Santa Monica Pier last Saturday evening to try their new line of frozen custard and ride the carousel.   They were sampling all of their flavors – ...

Atticus Creamery & Pies Review

In my husband’s perfect world, every day would be Pie Day, since he is not really a fan of cake. If he’d had his druthers, he would even have served our wedding guests pie instead of cake on our big day. So for his birthday, and because I am running for Wife of the Year, I took him to Atticus Creamery and Pies for a sampling of what they have ... Read More »

Easy, Healthy Burger for National Burger Month

Turkey_Burger_Spinach_Avocado

It’s National Burger Month so I thought I would share my favorite Healthy Burger recipe that works for the entire family. This turkey burger recipe is my favorite because I can easily make it every-which-way for my family of picky eaters – with cheese, without cheese, bun, no bun. It was made even healthier by roasting vegetables instead of making french fries. My younger son asked to have Brussels sprouts because they “taste ... Read More »

Cocktail Time – Maui Brand Sugar

Many of you know May 1st as May Day, but did you know that Hawaiians celebrate it as Lei Day? As a huge fan of Hawaii and the aloha spirit (as well as beverages), I was very excited to find myself invited to a delightful cocktail party hosted by Maui Brand Sugar at Now Boarding in WeHo. We sampled three different signature drinks, and although I loved them all, I’d ... Read More »

Sunny Anderson Talks About Cooking With SPAM

Sunny_Anderson_SPAM

It’s no secret that I love food and I’ll try just about anything, but there was one food that had never crossed my lips – SPAM. SPAM is meat in a can. I love meat and cans and I especially love food trends, but I was always a little afraid of it. I was invited to the SPAMerican tour with Sunny Anderson and I have to say that SPAM is ...

Coconut Chicken Curry Over Uddo’s Kitchen Red Lentil Pasta

Red_lentil_pasta_coconut_curry_uddos

When my husband was diagnosed with Celiac Disease 14 years ago, few people knew what it was. It was hard to find crackers that didn’t taste like cardboard, forget about bread, cookies, and pasta. Now, going gluten free is a “thing” and there are so many great products to choose from. One I’m loving right now is Uddo’s Kitchen Red Lentil Pasta. It’s made with only Red Lentils, which are ...

And they want the public’s help. Just Label It’s Conceal or Reveal Campaign is demanding that companies put a label on any food products that ... Read More »
