Barcelona…what a colorful city. This is the first leg of our Mediterranean cruise that more than 100 of you are joining us on. Mike and I came a couple of days early to see the sites. We’re so glad we did! Our hotel is the Westin Le Meridien in the heart of the city right […]
Hey guys, make plans now to head out to Gruene, TX this weekend, Oct. 9. 10 and 11, for some great Texas music, fun Texas wines and amazing food! One of my favorites, Joe Ely, is one of the headliners, but there’s plenty more. Saturday is the big wine tasting day – ‘Texas Tastings and […]

My son loves the spaghetti, and I’m hooked on the gnocchetti sardi. The texture, shape and taste are fabulous. I use these in place of spaghetti in ‘My Favorite […]
A big congratulations to one of my favorite Mexican food restaurants – Rosario’s. The fun, popular eatery won top honors at the Tamalada Throwdown this past weekend at Our Lady of the Lake University. Their delicious creation…a roasted corn poblano and queso fresco tamal.
After three weeks of religiously following the Adkins diet, I confess! I cheated this weekend… Mike and I had to be in Houston Friday night for an auto dealers event (Mike’s a headhunter for dealers), and we made a mini-vacation out of it. (I do mean mini) We got a dynamite weekend rate at the […]
