International ‘No Diet’ Day – Let’s Pig Out!

If you’re a foodie, you probably look forward to the winter holidays with much anticipation. There’s Labor Day, which my family celebrates with a huge barbeque and pie cook-off, and of course Halloween, the kids’ favorite holiday. It’s the one day that no matter how hard I try, I can’t resist sending myself into a sugar coma. November isn’t much better. Last year, at Thanksgiving, I counted over 30 different food items on our table, and yes, I tried every one of them. As soon as my stomach starts to settle, there’s Christmas and New Year’s Eve; just another excuse to shovel copious amounts of food into my belly. All those holidays usually lead to the annual New Year’s resolution of going on a diet and eating healthier, but I can only tolerate leafy greens and water for so long. Thankfully, today is International No Diet Day.  This means I get a free pass from my restricted menu for 24 hours…and believe me, I plan to use it! If you are a foodie like me, here are just a few of the places you can visit to celebrate this gastric occasion.

6 Sinfully Good Super Bowl Recipes

Super Bowl RecipesThis weekend, Ray Lewis will play the last game of his football career – the Super Bowl. No matter the outcome, it is sure to be a great game with an emotional conclusion. Although I spent my high school years in San Francisco and cheered on Steve Young, I have to admit that I would love to see Lewis leave on a high note. It’s pretty impressive to have an NFL career that has spanned 17 years, so I think he’s earned the right to go out with a win. The weird thing is that a few years ago, I probably could have cared less about watching the game, let alone who was playing in it. My focus was on feeding the crowd gathered at my house. This year, however, I look forward to yelling at the television alongside my husband and sons, while throwing back some incredible munchies and a few libations. Since my attention will be divided between the living room and the kitchen, my menu will need to be simple. If you also have a crowd to feed, but don’t want to miss any of the action, consider adding a few of these delicious creations to your Super Bowl spread. Continue Reading…


Score BIG With These Student Discounts!

Student DiscountsI can remember counting down the days to my high school graduation. I couldn’t wait to go off to college and live on my own. When I stepped on campus, it was everything I had hoped for and more. I finally had the freedom to choose my own classes and I could sleep in on weekends, but I was also on my own when it came to paying for everything. I really wasn’t prepared for how expensive college life was. I knew I had to budget for tuition, housing, and fees, but the everyday items, like toothpaste and laundry detergent, really added up. You never really think about all those little expenses when you’re at home and can simply grab something from the pantry or bathroom closet. Luckily, being a college student also gives you access to something else – discounts! Continue Reading…
