Can you believe that “SeaSnax” is made from seaweed?

seasnax

When I was asked to sample a new product that was made from something that I didn’t expect to be palatable, I wasn’t sure what to say. It was made from seaweed, (or as the producers of Seasnax refer to as sea vegetables). Yes, I know, the material that grows in the ocean is what […]

Even if your team isn’t playing this year, you can throw the best Super Bowl party on the block with the catering options from Chipotle Mexican Grill. Whether you’re hosting a large gathering or a small group of friends, Chipotle has several choices for football fans everywhere. The Chipotle folks catered last year’s Superbowl party. […]

Pistachio Snack Bar?

Enjoying Pistachio Bites

pistachiobites_1

When it comes to snacking, I have to say I love pistachio nuts. It doesn’t have anything to do with the fact that my favorite color is green and so is a pistachio nut, but they just taste so darn good! Once a bag of pistachio nuts is placed in front of me I have […]

Salads Taste Better

Salad dressings from San-J

sanjdressing_1

I wonder how many people can honestly say that they love to eat salad on a daily basis. I don’t mean just lettuce and tomato because that isn’t a salad to me, but with lots of vegetables, cheeses, olives, nuts, sunflower seeds and croutons. Now that’s a salad! Anyway, how many say that they can […]

Morning Coffee Just Got Easier!

Enjoy Jiva Coffee Cubes

When I wake up in the morning, I leave just the right amount of time for me to get ready so I don’t get distracted. That means that I have to have practically everything ready the night before; even my lunch (unless something needs refrigerating). I have everything set out for the next morning so […]

Spice Up That Meal

Testing Teeny Tiny Spices from Vermont

There’s a lot to be said about those that love to cook; any day, any time, they just love to cook. And, I happen to be one of those that ‘love to cook.’ I’ve been told, however, that the one thing I need to work a little is the seasonings. I either add too much, […]

Flavors of Belize

Not  just an ordinary cookbook! When it comes to cooking, I have to say that I am a decent cook.  Sometimes I’ll follow a recipe completely, sometimes I ‘tweak’ it a bit and sometimes, I come up with my own recipe.  Either way, I love to cook just about anything and everything from anywhere using […]

What’s Better than a Truffle in your Stocking?

The 75-truffle Lindt Lindor Truffle Gift Bag

truffles_1

One of the nice treats that I’ve come to expect each year is a Lindt Lindor truffle in my Christmas Stocking. A little sphere of chocolate deliciousness that is just on the cusp of the solid-liquid border, ready to pop into my mouth and melt into bliss on my tongue.  But this week, something arrived […]

Say Hello To Pronto

Instant Coffee, Really Instant

FrenchRoast_onthego

  I am not a morning person. Never was, never will be. Yes, it would be nice to see a sunrise someday, but I am okay with watching sunsets. In fact, I find that I get so much more done in the late evening rather during the part of day people call morning. And yes, […]

A Li’l Sweetness Goes a Long Way

Tasting Hey Shuga! sweetener

heysuga_1

I have been a coffee connoisseur for as long as I can remember. I start my day with a steamy hot cup of coffee. Then the afternoon pick me up to get me through the rest of the day. And, sometimes, I will have a cup of coffee at night, sit back and watch a […]
