    Fat-Burning Power Smoothie

    Fat-Burning Power Smoothie

    It is mid-February and usually, by this point, most of the New Year’s resolutions have gone out the window or just about to go out the window. If you feel like you’re on the verge of giving up your health and fitness goals, please hang in there. Tell yourself that you started for a reason and if you stop now, you might regret it a few weeks from now when you could have already reached that goal. Trust me, I’ve been there.

    To give you a little motivation boost, I created this recipe, which has Read more…

    This summer has flown by, hasn’t it? With the end of summer approaching and the school year starting this means tons of excuses to have wine. Who am I kidding, any time is a good excuse to have wine. But this time of year does come with excuses to celebrate with it, like kids starting a new chapter in their lives. In my case each one of my kids, as well as our family as a whole, are starting a new phase. My youngest is Read more…


    Dinner at The Cowfish

    Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar

    Let me tell you all about the uniqueness that is The Cowfish, the first and only sushi burger bar. When they first opened its doors here in Charlotte with the concept of the Burgushi (yes, burger in a sushi), some were very skeptical. Yet, it still drew people in out of curiosity. Hey, some people are squeamish at the thought of eating raw fish, so in my opinion, its a great way to introduce them to sushi with meat instead. I, on the other hand, will eat just about anything.

    The Cowfish, named after an actual fish, has a sushi menu, a burger menu and a burgushi menu. Both the sushi and Read more…

    Movie Nights With Coca-Cola

    Movie Nights with Coca-Cola

    I have to admit, I am not a big soda drinker, but when I do have a soda it is ALWAYS Coca-Cola Classic, hands down. It has been this way since I was little, so it has always been my preference. And those times that I do have a Coca-Cola, it is because I’m eating either a pizza or popcorn. It just goes together, there’s no question about it, one is not right without the other, in my opinion. But I’m sure you can agree with me, right? For us, we love movie nights with Coca-Cola.

    On a recent post I mentioned that Read more…
