Breyers Smooth and Dreamy

Some days I feel like I ought to open a savings account just for our ice cream budget. I am realizing now how true my statement was sometime ago when I said that I needed to earn some “ice cream money” by blogging! Now that it’s summer time, I can’t keep ice cream in the freezer! They just magically disappear as soon as I put them in there! “SOMEONE” and “WHO” are the culprits. How do I know? All I hear is ‘SOMEONE ate all the ice cream again!’ or ‘WHO ate all the ice cream!’ So when I received an offer to try out the new Smooth & Dreamy ice cream bars and sandwiches from Breyers, I jumped at the chance! It was timely too, as last weekend was also … Read entire article »

Pringles’ U Taste We Donate Campaign

Pringles launches their newest product, Pringles Multigrain, with the “U Taste. We Donate” campaign. Pringles partnered with celebrity chef, Tyler Florence to end childhood hunger in America by giving consumers an easy way to contribute to this great cause. Did you know that almost 25% of children in America faced hunger at some point? And no, it’s not the kind of hunger that my kids whine about when they get home from school and there’s nothing to graze on before dinner; the kind of hunger they are talking about is the one that happens when there just isn’t anything to eat at all in the house. It’s hard to believe that America which is supposed to be the land of plenty has people that are as bad off as those … Read entire article »

Wine Racks for Our Kitchen

This is a sponsored postMy husband has been eyeing a built in wine rack at a restaurant that is similar to the one in this photo, for the longest time. Although he loves building things himself, he doesn’t always have the time. He loves wine, and I do too. We both like having some on hand when we are in the mood for when whe have company over. When we have friend over, they also inevitably bring wine as gifts so we end up having extra bottles at one time or another. We can probably store them in the refrigerator, but some wines are just not ideal chilled. Ergo, a space to store wine, aside from the pantry, has been needed in our kitchen for a while. These wine racks … Read entire article »

We are currently on vacation in Wilmington, NC. Today, after touring Screen Gems Studios where the One Tree Hill series is shot, we got hungry from all that walking and went to Fajita Express just for a quick and cheap lunch. We had our doubts walking in because of name and the fact that it has drive through service, but what the heck, we were hungry. The usual fare like fajitas, tacos, burritos, enchiladas, were passable enough. Asi had fish tacos which were quite good, but the surprise for me was this huge bowl of steaming menudo!I have seen pitiful immitations of menudo, but this was the real thing. It was full of tender tripes and ligament floating in a spicy and savory soup. It came with a platefull of … Read entire article »

Titos Tacos

Titos Tacos is not only a dive, but is also an institution. If you grew up in West Los Angeles, you would know what I’m talking about. They have been at this location for over twenty years. The line never ends, no matter what time of day you go. If you talk to the people in line, you would inevitably run into people like me who have moved out of the area but still come back for a dose whenever they are back in town. A couple of ladies I was talking to while waiting for my order now live outside of L.A., but happened to be in the neighborhood, so they were stocking up on burritos and tamales. The menu is simple and straight forward, the prices have not changed … Read entire article »
