A Relaxing Weekend at Mount Airy Casino Resort #MountAiry #MtAiry #MountAiryResort #ad

Disclosure: Complimentary lodging, meals and entertainment were provided by Mount Airy Casino Resort in exchange for my honest review. No other compensation was received. If you ask me, I believe all married couples need some time away from all the stress of everyday life from time to time, especially when kids are involved.  Don't get me wrong, I love my kids with all my heart and soul but there are times when I just need some alone time with my honey bunny without any distractions. We. … [Read more...]

{Giveaway} Boston Market’s Newest Item: Slow Braised Pulled Pork #‎PulledPork‬

Boston Market has a brand new item on their menu that is quite tasty and satisfying. It's Slow Braised Pulled Pork. If you love Boston Market, then you should really try the pulled pork.  It's DELISH! My family and I finally tried it a few days ago and we all loved it. Although the pulled pork is delicious all by itself, you have a choice of two sauces: Garlic Citrus sauce and Zesty BBQ sauce.  They're both very good but my favorite was, hands down, the Zesty BBQ sauce.  It's sweet and … [Read more...]

{Easy Recipe} How to Make Yummy Gluten-Free Pancakes

I'm still trying to get used to the texture of anything gluten-free. If you're a bread and pasta type of person (I'm more of a bread person!), you know the texture I'm talking about. Gluten is a wonderful thing. It keeps breads soft and helps foods maintain their shape, acting as a glue that holds food together. I was diagnosed with Graves' disease in 2006 -- a year after I had my daughter. Graves' disease is an immune system disorder that results in the overproduction of thyroid hormones … [Read more...]

A Delicious Valentine’s Day Menu Filled with Easy-to-do Recipes

I believe a way to anyone's heart is through their stomach. Wouldn't you agree?  The saying goes towards the men, but I highly doubt a woman would ever turn down a home-cooked meal any night of the week especially with a menu like you see below. Am I right ladies? ;) As you know, Valentine's Day is Friday and restaurants everywhere will be swamped with reservations and of course,  people.  I don't know about you but I dislike crowds. Whatever I need to do to do to avoid crowds, I'm in! … [Read more...]

{Review} Enjoying the Summer with Suddenly Salad

Disclosure: The information and prize pack have been provided by General Mills through MyBlogSpark. During the colder months, I tend to stay away from salads. I prefer hot, hearty meals in the winter to keep me warm and toasty.......but isn't that the norm with everyone? In the summer, I’m all about salads and smoothies. It’s easy for me to maintain my weight in the summer because I’m not indulging in all of those carbs for dinner. ;) Recently, I received an email from MyBlogSpark to try … [Read more...]

Happy Father’s Day!!

I know it's a little late but I was practically in the kitchen all day long! My hubby wanted nothing but food for Father's Day and as a good wife, I obliged. ;) I made my famous Ham, Chorizo and potato frittata for brunch and like the first time, it was delicious!  We were home all day so we kind of just chilled out and watched movies and our recorded shows. Lunch was whatever we found in the fridge.  Call me lazy but I didn't' feel like making all three meals today.  :) Dinner was … [Read more...]

Edy’s Pumpkin Ice Cream is DELICIOUS!

I just finished the last bit of Pumpkin Spice ice cream from Edy's. It's indeed a sad, sad day. You may be asking why. Well, here's the thing. I have a bit of an obsession with pumpkin. I love almost anything with pumpkin in it; Pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice latte, pumpkin mousse pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin spiced cake, coffee with pumpkin spice sprinkled on top of whipped cream -- the list can literally go on and on. The day before Thanksgiving, crazy me, went into Stop and Shop … [Read more...]

Easy Recipe: Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

When I cook, I rarely use a recipe. I cook how my mother and grandparents taught me.  A little bit of this, a little it of that and make sure you taste as you go along. Learning how to cook was fairly easy for me because I grew up in the kitchen with my family.  I was always fascinated how they would just add ingredients and rarely measure anything and it was the greatest meal ever.  That is how I cook today for my family. I'm like a Latina Rachael Ray because she doesn't measure either.  … [Read more...]
