Florida weather can certainly be crazy! It might not snow—I wish—but from one day to the other it can be freezing, and; then, suddenly it’s boiling. In the last few weeks, it’s been so cold that we’ve been able to keep the AC off. We’ve even had the windows and sliding doors open. It’s been amazing weather! Read More
My niece, Lulu, is such a little ham! I am so happy to be involved. Way back when, I lived a sad and miserable double life. Nobody could bear to have me around. I was like a negative vibe all day, no matter what. Being in a relationship with Jesus has changed me from the inside out. Believe me, I am no preacher. My blog isn’t meant to shove my religious beliefs down one’s throat. I believe what I believe because I know the truth about Him. Either way, this changed me for the better. It gave me a new shot at life. It gave me a chance to know Lulu and to hold her and to love her. Read More
Nohely is in town! Let’s all make a sound. Haha, I’m corny like that. I love to write, I am sure you all know. I, also, used to write rhymes when I was younger. It’s funny to think that I used to rap my rhymes to my friends many moons ago. I loved writing about everything I felt. I wanted to share it with the world. The irony of that is that I am now doing the exact same thing right now. Who would have known then that I could hold a blog together for this long!
Today is a day full of crisp and colorful Club Lettuce Wraps for the summer! These are quick easy lunches that are good to go for those days by the pool, on the beach, at a barbecue, or just plain day of fun out in the sun. Many people want to stay or get fit during the summer but struggle to do so. I can tell you why because I have been there before. Summer days drift away quickly; before you know it the day is over and you have hardly eaten a thing.
Having quick meals to make with ingredients that are not complex but at the reach of your fingertips are the perfect way to not skip meals. To get or stay fit, you have to be well nourished. Use this set of lettuce wraps to keep you, your friends, the kids…just everyone happy and healthy at the same time. Read More
When I spend weeks away from home without cooking, whether it be eating pre-cooked meals by yours truly or having food made to order according to my dietary needs, I miss nothing more than being home and cooking for my family. I love the creativity God enlightens me with in the kitchen. It truly is a blessing. Read More
Last night, Marylex and I went to see George Lopez live at the Hard Rock Café in CityWalk (Universal Studios Night Life). IT WAS HYSTERICAL! She had surprised me with the tickets because I’m leaving tomorrow to Atlanta. There were a few jokes I had heard before but I almost cannot believe we actually got to see him live! We have always loved him. I love his show. I love his comedy. And, love his jokes. He was significantly late—can you tell he’s Hispanic?! LOL.
He didn’t talk about it but he had been tweeting to the very last minute about a golf tournament he attended down the street from my house. Well, Universal is down the street, too, so I guess he was right around the corner the whole time. He was 45 minutes late. Almost a whopping hour! I almost didn’t care because the guy who came out before him to keep us entertained had us cracking up basically peeing in our pants. Still trying to find out who he is so we can watch his comedic performances.
Clearly, as I stressed in my last post, I am very behind on updating the blog with recipes I have been creating for some time coming. Also, I am struggling to find the right place in my house to take food pictures. Although nobody talks about it, food photography runs the show when it comes to food blogging. Nobody cares for a blog with bad pictures. Let’s be honest around here. Read More
I had been eyeing a delicious warm potato salad that was similar to this on Pinterest. It was full of fatty ingredients and tons of sugar. I left it on my secret Pinterest board for as long as I can remember. That board serves as a purpose for inspiration and, boy, was I inspired this fine morning! Thanks dude with the idea of a really unhealthy Honey Dijon Potato Salad with good flavors.
Thanks to dude, I have come up with this wonderful healthy alternative that I just loooooove. The second I tried it, I knew I was in heaven. Read More
