Foodie Love: Mi Vida Cafe

Foodie Love: Mi Vida Cafe

It all started with the indecision between having dinner and going to the gym. My plan all along the day had been to go workout but when I got home, sat down on the couch and turned on the TV, I thought food was what […]

Foodie Love: Loba Restaurant

Foodie Love: Loba Restaurant

I spend considerable amounts of my time scouting local restaurants and could waste hours searching and comparing menus and reading reviews. Sometimes, reviews come in handy and other times the menu looks so enticing that I disregard reviews to follow my palate’s heart.

Gluten Free Tabbouleh (with Lentils)

After today’s’ chocolate candy bar binge eating I really needed to make something healthy for dinner. I had my mind on my hunger and Tabbouleh on my mind. To my luck, I had prepared quinoa and lentils two days ago thinking I was gonna have […]

Easy Hummus Recipe

Easy Hummus Recipe

Hummus is so easy to make. The recipe is pretty much the same all across the blogosphere, unless you want to get creative and add different ingredients to make it unique. I like to eat the simple kind and pair it with different tasty dishes […]

Foodie Love: Sushi Samba

Foodie Love: Sushi Samba

This is a very happy post because my experience at Sushi Samba was a great one. I think Sushi Samba is the only non vegan restaurant in Miami to have a vegan menu. A vegan menu guarantees that my food will be made without butter, […]

First time I tried veggie Tuna Salad was at Christopher’s Kitchen in Palm Beach Gardens. I wish I had their recipe but since I don’t I’ll just come up with my own.

Maca Almond Energy Balls

Maca Almond Energy Balls

These maca almond balls are delish! The only thing that would make them better is if they were dipped in chocolate. These little wonders are packed with protein, fiber and healthy fats. And as an added bonus, they give you a good energy kick thanks […]


PARENTHOOD

Mini Trip to The Mini Apple

Mini Trip to The Mini Apple

This past weekend the boyfriend and I went to Minneapolis for one of his friend’s wedding celebration. Though they got married one month ago in an intimate ceremony for family and close friends, they hosted a weekend celebration for friends and family that are mostly from out of town. The plan for the weekend was a dinner on Friday night, Twins baseball game on Saturday night, and brunch on Sunday. I thought this was a neat idea since I’m not too crazy about attending weddings, unless the food is ah-mazing. We arrived Friday afternoon and met up with them at a downtown restaurant called Butcher and The Boar. In typical foodie fashion, I had already looked up local restaurants to try before arriving at the Twin Cities and Butcher and The Boar had really good reviews, so I was happy about that. What I was not too happy about is that my boyfriend assured me that it was just going to be a few people casually meeting at a restaurant. Upon arrival, of course, the “casual bar shindig” turned out to be a dinner reception for 100 people and, I, was wearing jeans. You could tell I was on the groom’s side of the invite because all his guests where casually dressed compared to the rest of the party. Mmm hmm.

This was the pre-fixe menu accompanied by a tasty Old Fashioned.
