Rumtoberfest at Bahama Breeze is not to be missed

By | November 3, 2015|Featured, Food|Comments Off on Rumtoberfest at Bahama Breeze is not to be missed

Their rum drinks are available all year long, but they're celebrating all things RUM with Rumtoberfest at all their locations. My friend came with me to experience it at [...]

Taco Tuesday with Garlic Gold Oil

By | October 28, 2015|Featured, Food|Comments Off on Taco Tuesday with Garlic Gold Oil

Is there really anything better than tacos? I totally love how Tuesday has become the day for taco eating. It's the best news for a girl who loves tacos, and loves eating, in general. Little Miss is a huge fan of our oven tacos I found on Pinterest. The Boy wasn't as big of a [...]

Dining at Universal in Orlando

By | October 26, 2015|Featured, Food, Travel|Comments Off on Dining at Universal in Orlando

Vacations for me are more than just about having fun at amusement parks, or hanging at the beach. It's also beyond the choice of "adult" beverages available to me, and how often I can suck one of those down. What are vacations for me? FOOD. I'm not ashamed of it. I love to eat! Since [...]

Coming to grips with dietary needs

By | October 8, 2015|Featured, Food|Comments Off on Coming to grips with dietary needs

I have children. I’ve fed them, and I’ve weaned them. I’ve dealt pretty well with the changes needed to their dietary requirements. In hindsight, I have to say, I've had it easy. I’ve recently been looking into several different diets that people commonly used. I had a very limited idea about how many people are [...]

A broken clavicle. Painful for not just the kid with the break, but for all around him, too. After The Boy fell off a spinning chair in his classroom on the last full day of school in June, we were faced with a painful break of a bone, for sure. We were also faced with [...]

A food box filled with awesome: HelloFresh Review

By | June 17, 2015|Featured, Food, Reviews|1 Comment

What's the worst part about cooking? You know, besides the actual cooking? For me, there's two things I hate: shopping and measuring everything out. After cooking, well, I cannot stand cleaning up. However, that's a different post entirely. Mr. Sunflower hates when I go into a food store. As much as a save shopping online for [...]

StarKist Charlie has taken tuna beyond a basic sandwich

By | May 6, 2015|Featured, Food|Comments Off on StarKist Charlie has taken tuna beyond a basic sandwich

Tuna happens to be one fish I do eat. Salmon and tuna in salad form works for me, along with lobster and crab. Plus, if you fry me up some calamari, I'm good. Anything else having to do with fish, it just doesn't work for me. The smell, the texture, the taste - fish usually [...]

Lobster Risotto made by November Sunflower thanks to PeachDish

By | February 4, 2015|Featured, Food, Reviews|Comments Off on Lobster Risotto made by November Sunflower thanks to PeachDish

Over and over, it has been well-established that November Sunflower is not meant to be in the kitchen. I burn myself on the toaster oven at least once a day, and the smoke detectors go off at least once per day. Personally, I think it's because they are just overly sensitive. I try not to [...]
