Food Blogger Camp is back folks and we’ll be learning the basics of food blogging on sun filled, cocktail laden beaches again.

I’m guilty and fessing up to the fact that I often drown my salads in dressing. Simple, crisp and fresh salads are my favorite ways to eat greens, sans all the complicated toppings. The extra toppings often get in the way of my favorite greens. But to contradict myself in a bowl of lettuce, I’ll often plunge the delicate leaves in a bath of oil and vinegar, suffocating my salad in excess dressing. Bad me, bad.
Key ingredients to healthy & flavorful dressing: non-fat yogurt, » Read the full story →

As David Lebovitz put it, ” Yesterday was the best day of my life. Okay, it was the best day of the year ” and we agree with him 100%. Here at the Club Med Food Blogger Camp in Ixtapa, Mexico it has been a tremendous 7 day experience of valuable blogging workshops and of course, not to mention all the sun, beach and cocktails.

Clearly, Todd and I don’t have tons of free time on hand, but the thrill of my week at Club Med and the gazillions of pictures and video clips forced us to free up some time. Making a video isn’t exactly a quickie project that we can do in front of the TV. A video will take us hours (tens) to complete because adding pictures, sound effects, transitions and movement suck up so much time. Honestly, learning how to use Final Cut Studio Pro is » Read the full story →
Even right at this moment as I’m frantically throwing everything but the kitchen sink into my suitcase, I’m pinching myself, not believing where I’ll be heading to. I pinched my two dogs, my mother, my brothers, the mail man and even Todd, though he does pinch back twice as hard.

From sweet, pretty, fruity concoctions that make me giggle like a girl to straight from the bottle whiskey that almost grows hairs on my chest, » Read the full story →
I’m baaaack, nicely tanned, ten pounds heavier and three bottles of Tequila richer! Returning from 6 glorious days with Jaden of Steamy Kitchen at the luxurious Club Med resort in beautiful Ixtapa, Mexico has me spoiled, lazy and yearning for taco’s and spicy habanero chili’s. For a “roughing it” type of traveler gal like me, this trip to a magnificent, all inclusive, resort was like being Cinderella in Mexico. All I needed was a Mexican boyfriend Prince Charming to complete the experience, but had to » Read the full story →
