Ugghhhhh this heat. I seriously want to drink all my meals through a straw these days, and call it “The Summer Of SHAKES!” My favorite shake right now is Caramel Peach Buttered Pecan Shake. I know it sounds like it may give you a cavity, but I use Torani syrup and sauces for the perfect amount of sweetness and it’s incredibly light too. Torani flavors are crafted in such a way to (more…)
A while ago a friend of mine had posted a picture of avocado tacos and one of the persons in the comment section asked “how do you keep the crust from going soggy?” The person who posted never responded, because they probably didn’t have an answer. I thought that to be a legitimate question and have never forgot about it. (more…)
Thank you Warner Bros. Animation and Allied Contigo for inviting my family and I to the premiere of Teen Titans Go Movie to aid with this post.
Last week my family was invited to the premiere of Teen Titans Go Movie. My son Max is a big fan, so of course I accepted the invitation. In anticipation of the film I started asking Max a ton of questions about the characters. My first question: What do the Teen Titans eat? It was interesting to hear my 8 year old answer this. In a nutshell he said they eat nothing but ‘junk food’ (his word) and fast food. Hamburgers, and chicken nuggets…. basically things we don’t eat at home. I thought ‘great, what am I going to create for this Teen Titan Go Movie post?” Then he said , “Except Beast Boy, he’s a vegetarian and he loves burritos, salads, tofu, and carrots.” My eyes lit up for several reasons.

It seems like yesterday that I was introducing Max (my son) to Kinder Joy™ for the first time. We had just landed in Italy and were slightly tired from the long flight but running on an adrenaline high, excited to take in the Italian culture. We popped in to a little gelato shop and there on the counter sat a display of Kinder Joy™. His little eyes looked at the egg-shaped packaging in full wonderment, then he asked, “what are those things, Mom?” I said, “let’s buy some and you can find out.” (more…)

As a little girl seeing JAWS for the first time I was scared out of my mind. I remember wondering for a long time afterward if he (Jaws) would make an appearance in my toilet bowl or through the drain pipe in my tub. I was little, I didn’t know that those were impossible ways for a shark to attack. I just related water with JAWS. (more…)

I call these my mint confessionals, mint and chip paletas. I feel like I eat them so much I almost need to ask for forgiveness. It just seems wrong how much I crave them. I know that sounds a bit much but they have stolen my heart. It all started a while back while I was making my own flavored syrup. I decided to make a batch of mint syrup using TADIN Spearmint Tea as my mint flavoring. Once the mint syrup was made I dreamt of all the ways I could use it. I thought it might taste nice added into my Fruity Iced Tea Punch Bowl , or maybe drizzled over a fruit salad, then I thought “I know, I can make mint and chip paletas with it. Cool icy mint and hints of chocolate all made into a yummy marriage! YES PLEASE! That’s how this love affair sparked into a FIRE. (more…)
