Let’s talk about our family File Organization System. Getting organized can be tough especially while juggling a very busy life. Sometimes papers can pile up in a basket or the corner of our desk and if one of us doesn’t put a stop to it right then and there, it can go on forever. We have a mail basket conveniently located in the kitchen. It’s basically a white washed wood pallet chalkboard sign with a chicken wire nest in the front. We put all our letters in there when we first get home. Slowly, all our papers migrate to the home office and collect themselves around the printer. Again, this could have gone on for days if we let it. Read More

Hey there my lovely ladies + gents. Before I get into all the specifics, I wanted to share that most grocery stores do carry the salmon filet stuffed with crab meat. It goes by the name “Salmon Roll”. Many times, you have to ask the butcher in the back if he has any because it’s pretty popular + runs out from the display glass. Asking the butcher, ensures even more freshness, so don’t fret. Read More
Do NOT just scroll by this thinking it is no big deal. This is the best thing to happen since my recipe of “Spicy Mayo” that although shared on this blog, was also featured in the debut of my cookbook, “Real Simple Summer”–get your copy BTW. And, make this right now. Don’t even say it…you’re welcome.
For as long as I can remember, I have wanted the PERFECT Italian seasoning. There’s never just the right pinch of this or that– at least for the flavors I was searching for.
With my lifestyle of health + longevity, I always want to find the best all natural alternative to the yucky things I used to put in my body. I’m most certainly not going to pick up an order of pasta to go from my favorite Italian restaurant in Miami, Perricone’s, cause I just don’t eat that anymore. And, I’m most assuredly not going to be stopping by Carmine’s Trattoria right across the street. I end up going to Giardino Gourmet Salads, one of my favorite places to get nutritious food in Kendall, but this is not filling up that taste bud I’m looking for.
