Easy Snack Ideas for Kids
September 11, 2021

School is back in person and we are so excited to be changing things up again. We have been together at home for months and it’s been great spending time as a family.  With school going from virtual to in person, we are thinking of new ways to change up snacking. School snacks are different from at home snacks. When at school, my boys love snacks and small packages of things.  They like their food and their snacks separated and portioned. Finding snacks for kids can be challenging sometimes.  Then of course, I have a picky eater.  Lucky me! One of my sons doesn’t like bread at all. If I ask him what he wants for lunch for school he says, “nothing.” It’s hard to work with that. …

How to make a Non Alcoholic Raspberry Mojito Mocktail
September 1, 2021

Summer is here and we are building a pool.  Yes, we are building a pool.  So, of course I’m thinking about barbecues, refreshments, and parties in our backyard.  I’m imagining lots of summer days outside sipping on delicious summer drinks. Recently, I’ve been looking for the best mocktails for summer. Specifically a low carb summer drink refresher recipe. I used to bartend in another life in Miami Beach, and one of the most popular drinks I made was the Mojito, a traditional Cuban drink. It is known to be the least liked to make by bartenders because of the labor.   However, it is one of the most popular drinks in Miami so a bartender has to get used to making them all the time! It’s getting hot here …

The Best Marriage Proposal Idea for 2021
July 30, 2021

Getting engaged during Covid is something a lot of couples didn't expect. Asking someone to marry you during a pandemic has been popular after couples are realizing that they may not want to keep having social distanced dates or are just ready to take that next step with the love of their life!

60 + Amazing Easter Desserts for the Whole Family
April 1, 2021

We loved Easter growing up because it meant decadent Greek Easter dinners, or British style Sunday dinners, depending on where we lived.

50 + Divine Carrot Cake Recipes
March 18, 2021

It was so different, especially the cream cheese frosting. I've loved it ever since. These days, the traditional carrot cake is my favorite. I like it perfectly moist, using grated carrots. But as people have more dietary restrictions, we now have different varieties of carrot cake like gluten free carrot cake, Vegan carrot cake, Paleo carrot cake, air fryer carrot cake, eggless carrot cake and so many more Carrot Cake Recipes. People love baking carrot cakes around Easter as well, like an Easter Bunny Carrot Cake. Check out these …

Delicious and Decadent Keto Game Day Recipes

Super Bowl Sunday is approaching and although I am not a huge football fan, I am a huge food fan. The two kind of go together. The 2020 Super Bowl was played at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida on Sunday, February 2, 2020. The Big Game will featured the AFC Champions and the NFC Champions. This year will be a little different due to Covid. The Kansas City Chiefs will be playing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
