The flavor, textures and exciting spices of a plate of chilaquiles or breakfast tacos is a champion breakfast that fuels us for the long days. And when we have the opportunity to feast on such […]
Mezcal. Beyond the worm… Until recently I’ve never had much inclination to try mezcal. In the youthful and stupid years, we were more of a Jack Daniels crowd. Then as appreciation and a slightly more sophisticated palate developed, the worm-laden fire water Mezcal didn’t have much attraction. Or so I thought. Fortunately, I’ve gotten a […]
With a few thousand images to filter through still, we’ll eventually get to our mega posts about our Mexico trip we just returned from. We’re excited to share with you what crazy eating adventures we’ve been up to at the Food and Wine Festival in Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo Mexico.
One of the most emotional moments I had during my social media retreat at Rancho La Puerta spa was watching little children playing happily in a make shift play ground along the Tecate, Mexico river. The old swing-sets were rusted, but still working. The old car tires that were floating in the river of trash, […]
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 […]
Walking through the garden grounds of Rancho La Puerta Spa and Resort is a stroll back in time. The raw simplicity, native vegetation and beauty of the regions natural species are abundant throughout the property. Even though non-native plants can be found popping up in different planters and hillsides, the majority of the gardens maintain […]

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 […]
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. Obviously all the pinch marks […]
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, […]
