  For the past few years, I’ve been making pink foods along with KitchenAid, in an effort to increase breast cancer awareness and the Susan G.

Shrimp and Waffles with Pina Colada Sauce…#CoastIntoSummer and a Huge Giveaway!


Shrimp and Waffles?  Did she stutter? No, I did not. The rage for months and months has been Chicken and Waffles.  Syrup topped, or strawberry sauce topped, or honey glazed…you name it, it’s been done.  So, when my friends at SeaPak asked ME how I would Coast Into Summer using shrimp…my mind went to waffles.

Of course it was coming.  S’mores will ALWAYS be COMING. So when I learned that TruMoo had a new product […]

Life is but a Dream…Dreamfarm Giveaway!


I don’t know about you, but I love kitchen gadgets.  I have everything – multiples of things, in fact, likely the same things you have multiples of. Of course, every gadget doesn’t make the cut…some just plain are too bulky, or too cheaply made, or just don’t make sense to keep in the long run.  […]
