Miraval Resort & Spa, Part I

The hubster and I decided to get away and leave reality behind.  We did just that by going to Miraval Resort & Spa. I have heard so many wonderful things about this resort, so I always wondered, "What's the big deal?" Oprah and Gayle went on a retreat here, Bill...

Cooking With Arlette

I have never cooked shrimp because I know it is easy to overcook shrimp.  I am so tired of messing up different dishes that I called in a professional, my good friend Arlette, to help me with a pasta dish that I saw her cook a few months ago. You might remember...

Pappadeaux’s Seafood House in Phoenix

Matt's friends were in town from Seattle, so we hung out in Phoenix and decided to get some Pappadeaux's. I miss my crawfish etouffee, so I knew I had to order it before we arrived.  My husband is a country boy at heart, so he wanted me to eat some alligator --- yes,...

Happy Birthday to Me!

I am one year younger and I am so thankful for the years God has given me.  I stand on Psalm 91:16, "God will give me long life and show me His salvation."  For my special day, I hung out with my husband.  We watched Jumping the Broom, which was an awesome movie, and...

Pasco’s Kitchen & Lounge

While my in-laws were in town, we went to Pasco's Kitchen & Lounge.  It's located in Geronimo Village on University Blvd. in Tucson.  I saw this restaurant because it is located next to the Frog & Firkin where I used to listen to Kevin & Tanisha Hamilton's...

Vero Amore at Dove Mountain

I was craving pizza today, and to my surprise, I read about this restaurant in Tucson Living Magazine literally within an hour after my cravings began.  It is one of the top rated restaurants according to Tucson Living, so I wanted to see what all of the hype was...

A Beautiful Sunset

I'm reading a book called "The Greatest Secret," and one of the premises in the book is that gratitude brings blessings. Everyday, I thank God for where He has placed me, for the friends and family he has given me, and for the grace that He has shown me. Today, we...

Red Beans and Rice

It has been a long journey.  For the past two days, I have been trying to cook red beans and rice.  When I was in college at Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the cafeteria cooks prepared read beans and rice every Monday.  Seriously, they never missed a...
