  • It’s a Great Time to Get Naked!  #wine

    It’s a Great Time to Get Naked! #wine

    The Naked Grapepinot grigio has slight flavors of citrus, pear and honey. At only $9 a bottle, it’s a great time to get naked!   Pinot grigio is a great every day wine. One of the things I love about pinot grigio wines is that they tend to be light, and crisp and pair with almost anything. It may not be the absolute best choice for every meal, but for me it’s not a bad choice for any meal. I […]

  • Judging a Wine by its Label #WineWednesday

    Judging a Wine by its Label #WineWednesday

    Judging a wine by it’s label is generally not a good idea. I’ve tasted great wines with mundane looking labels and I’ve tasted mundane wines with great looking labels. To me, the world is a better place when the wine label gets it right. Such is the case with Apothic Red. It’s gothic looking crimson and black label allude to the plush velvety flavors this full bodied red blend of Zinfandel, Merlot, and Syrah. I found it to have an […]

  • Anaheim’s “The Catch”  Ceviche done right!  #Recipe

    Anaheim’s “The Catch” Ceviche done right! #Recipe

    If you’re looking for Cerviche done right, look no further than Orange County where Anaheim’s The Catch has some of the best.

    Some of our favorite finds are unique foodie experiences. We found what turned out to be one of the biggest surprises at The Catch in downtown Anaheim. Just a stone’s throw from Angels stadium and the Anaheim Grove, you can’t turn your head without seeing a big screen TV showing any sport imaginable.

    But hang on to your baseball glove, this ain’t your daddy’s sports bar. We went there expecting burgers and hot wings but were in for a shock. According to their history they’ve been serving some of the finest meats and seafood for over 30 years. We checked out the menu and saw treasures like Miso marinated Chilean Sea Bass, Lobster Diablo and their Master Chef Prime 8 ounce sirloin. The Chef is amazing, the servers are experts as helping you figure out what you’re craving and everyone there treats you like family.

    Anderson’s Famous Pea Soup ~ Good Ole Kitschy Road Trip Fun

    One of the great things about social media is that no matter where we travel, our online pals give us great tips about what to see and do.   That’s why, when they told us about a place in Buellton, California, called Pea Soup Andersen’s, we just had to stop and see what all the fuss was about.

  • A Plate of Bacon as BIG as Your Head

    A Plate of Bacon as BIG as Your Head

    If you’re driving down I-75 in Birch Run, Michigan, you’re not likely to notice anything special about Tony’s. Nestled quietly next to a gas station, it sits, unassuming and unremarkable. At first glance, you might even think it’s a truck stop. But pull in the massive parking lot and one thing will jump out at you; the line of people waiting that stretches way out into the parking area. Visit on the weekend and the line is even longer.

    Social Media Sets the Table: Food & Friend Pairing #DishTripLA

    Social media is the magic sauce. It’s the icing on the cake and the spice of life.

The conversation began fast & […]

    ADDetour ~ The Tampa Taco Bus

    You probably won’t find it in any of the tourists brochures but the Tampa Taco Bus in Tampa, FL is a MUST!! The Taco Bus is an old school bus converted into a kitchen that prepares incredible, fresh, authentic Mexican cuisine. The food was so good, I dove right in and ate it all before I remembered to take a picture. They are open 24/7, and as the sign says, “Broken English Perfectly Spoken.” Indoor and outdoor dining is available, […]

    Kruse & Muer on Wilshire by Vicky Akins

    There are times when eating is just eating. Then there are other occasions when the pace is less rushed, the meal represents family time and ‘eating’ becomes dining. Those meals are the ones from which great conversation, wonderful connections and unforgettable camaraderie are born.  But on rarer instances, maybe once or twice a year for the average person, you get to partake of a meal you’ll remember for a very long time. For those of you who have never treated […]
