Oddly enough there aren't to many good Italian-American restaurants on the side of town J and I live. Luckily, Maggiano's is one of the few. You can get good food (and a lot of it) for a nice price. Especially since they give you a 'to-go' pasta for free when you order a pasta at the restaurant.Read More
Lasagna is a sacred dish in our family. We have it on special occasions or when sometimes when the family gets together on Sundays for dinner. The recipe is passed down by teaching the younger generation.Read More
What a weekend! It was filled with family, friends and food. What's better than that? Not much, in my book. On Friday night J and I went out to eat with my parents whom we haven't seen in a few weeks. On Saturday night I made a new lasagna recipe (coming soon in another post) that is definitely worth sharing, and on Sunday morning our close friends came over for a World Cup watch party.Read More
I haven't written a post since March. March! Holy Mariah I'm way behind. I hate that I've let my blog fall to the wayside as my twin sis and I continue to build and grow our real estate business together. (BTW- we've moved brokerages and are now at a family-owned brokerage called Phillips & Associates Realty. We love it so far!)Read More
Curry has struck again on the blog! Man, I never knew how much I loved curry until last year, and now I can't seem to stop eating it. Lately, I've only done Thai curry dishes, but I've already been told by a fellow reader to try out out Indian curries, so I'm on the look out for those.Read More
Looking at my Netflix account under "Recommended for You", one would think I speak 4 different languages. I don't know what it is lately, but I've been hooked on international films and shows. Although sometimes tiresome and annoying to read subtitles, I get over the feeling quickly thanks to the attractive storylines, beautiful locations, and interesting cultures.Read More
Swimsuit season is a touchy topic to discuss. You either love it or you don't. I personally love it, not only because I enjoy lounging by the pool and working on my tan, but because swimsuits have gotten so much more fun over the years.Read More
It's been almost a month since I wrote my last blog post. I'm sorry :/ On a good note, Twin Sis and I have been beyond busy with work. On a bad note, I've neglected other things I enjoy doing like write to you all.Read More
Y'all know I enjoy cooking. It never used to be one of my favorite things to do, but the older I get (and the second I moved out on my own), I learned I need to have some basic skills in order for myself and my waistline to survive adulthood.Read More
It's hard to shop for boys, I'm not going to lie. Especially when your guy is a typical guy- he doesn't necessarily enjoy getting new clothes or grooming products. His hobbies are cars and electronics.Read More
I don't go to the grocery store that often. Not because I don't enjoy going. I actually really do! I love browsing the aisles for new foods to try, or getting ingredients for meals I've planned out for the week.Read More
J purchased a cooking class from Sur La Table for me for Christmas, and Saturday night we got to enjoy it together! I had gifted my mom a class we did together a few years ago and we had a blast, so I was very excited that J and I could experience one together.Read More
Did you know that the most common new year's resolution has to do with getting in shape, according to a Nielsen survey? Honestly, I used to be one of those people who vowed every January 1st to go on a diet.Read More
Happy New Year! Dah I can't believe it's 2018. This year, God-willing, I'll be traveling to two amazing exotic destinations, celebrating my 2nd wedding anniversary, turning 28, and hopefully experience a lot of other memorable and positive moments with life, business, and my blog!Read More
Lately, I've been sticking to my go-to meals (like Red Beans and Rice and Cottage Pie) since holiday schedules have been rather hectic, When I have made something new, I've completely forgotten to grab pictures of it. We tried this fabulous Slow Cooker Chicken Curry that I really wish I would've snapped pictures of because we loved it. When I make it again, I'll be sure to share.Read More
