Apparently 2011 is the year to get married. Seven (yes, seven!) of my nearest & dearest are tying the knot this year. And not even one of the weddings is where I live. Not that I’m complaining, mind you. San Francisco, Savannah, Atlanta, Santa Barbara… it could definitely be worse.
When it comes to home cleaners, there are so many gimmicks these days. The “Magic” Eraser. Kaboom Bowl Blaster. Robot powered vacuums. It’s refreshing to find a brand that doesn’t rely on gimmicky advertising to succeed. Instead, Replenish makes it’s stand with a simple tagline: A Better Cleanser with a Smarter Bottle. And for once, the claim is 100% spot-on.
There are only so many chocolate-bacon concoctions I can devour before I start to crave the old-school classics. When I was little, I loved climbing up on a stool to help my mom make Rice Krispie treats… it seemed magical that something so delicious could come out of a box of cereal!
Situated on the ground floor of the Westside Pavilion Mall, just below The Landmark theater, Westside Tavern is a great date-night spot. The lighting is low enough that we’re looking pretty good & the cocktails are so well-balanced that after downing 3 of them.. I know we’re lookin’ good! Perfect date-night spot indeed.
Growing up in Missouri, there were two distinct camps regarding the proper way to eat a watermelon. Salted or Plain. Now, I always thought those people who salted their watermelon were total weirdos. I mean, who puts salt on their fruit?! As it turns out, I stand corrected. Seasoned fruit is amazing.
There are few things in this world I love as much as chocolate. I could eat it every single day and to be honest with you, I usually do. But every once in a while I start to feel guilty about my gluttony and turn to a healthier way to get my chocolate fix: Cocoa Nibs!
