    MidLife is only the Beginning …

    MidLife is only the Beginning … We have a saying that MidLife isn’t the beginning of the end but the beginning of the beginning! It’s the right time, the perfect time to try something new, see what we haven’t seen before, venture out of our comfort zone and meet new challenges. From jumping out of planes to rock climbing and reaching new heights, there’s no time like the present to do what you have always wanted […]

    Fast and Easy Appetizers #Recipes

    Fast and easy appetizers: One of my favorite things about holiday parties is the variety of foods you usually have to choose from. A table is laid out before you, with so many choices, you literally take a spoonful of everything, just so you can taste it all.  Our brains know it may be a long time, before we get to taste some of these items again, so we make sure we get a bite […]

    Raising a glass of Emeril’s Champagne Punch to you! #sundaysupper

    en #SundaySupper decided to throw a potluck we knew right away we’d make Emeril’s Champagne Punch! (Recipe Below) Since successfully arriving in MidLife, every day is a celebration! We love nothing more than getting together with friends for laughs and good times, whether talking about world travels or a delicious new recipe. Raising a glass of Emeril’s Champagne Punch to you and wishing you a healthy, happy and well traveled New Year!

    A great example of never giving up on pursuing your dreams, Emeril Lagasse has inspired us to “Kick it up a Notch” when it comes to our own journey!

    Our favorite Emeril Quotes: “When I first decided to open a restaurant, I was turned down by several banks. It was the late 80’s and many restaurants were failing. I refused to give up because I knew I had a good concept”

    “Life just doesn’t hand you things. You have to get out there and make things happen. that’s the exciting part” “If you think big, then it’s going to be big”

    Segway to Kansas City ….

    Segway to Kansas City! We had no idea how much fun and how interesting a Segway tour of Kansas City’s Union Station would be. We absolutely loved it and it was one of our favorite things about Kansas City! The weather was perfect, which was unusual because every other day of the trip the wind was relentless. The Segway store is right inside Union Station and after a brief tutorial on how to start and […]

    The Ultimate Party Appetizer

    Who knew making the Ultimate Party Appetizer could be so simple yet flavorful.

    Food Porn: Taking the Moaning Out of the Bedroom and Putting it in the Kitchen where it Belongs

    Disclaimer: Food Porn Alert! Taking the Moaning Out of the Bedroom and Putting it in the Kitchen where it Belongs! We originally met Chef Debbie Frangipane on twitter. As luck would have it, she invited us to dinner IRL . We were greeted at the door that evening by her husband and Unsavory Adventurer, author Barry Frangipane and since that fateful evening, we have never looked at dessert quite the same. The dinner was amazing but what […]

    This Wine is the Cat’s Meow

    Lately I’ve been trying to eat a healthier diet. I remain a carnivore, but I’m including more chicken and fish in my diet and and less red meat. I generally prefer red wine, and while there are many reds that pair very well with foul and seafood, my new diet is giving me a good excuse to experience more whites. I found a simple recipe for pan seared scallops on the Food Network’s website and […]
