Tiff’s TankedGiving: Success!

The first year was a blast! The second year was the best! We had such a great time this year celebrating Thanksgiving with the Family. I couldn’t have asked for a better turnout. I decided to record the festivities as a vlog instead of sitting down and just talking about the day because I wanted…

Restaurant Review: Faustos! 

Oh. My. God!! I am such a sucker for Mexican food! I never knew what GOOD, authentic Mexican food tasted like until I moved to the West Coast. I’ve been hooked ever since. For whatever reason, Mexican cuisine is seasoned better. The juices from a carne asada taco…mmm! mmm! mmm! It’s something from the Gods!…

Nom! Nom! Nom!

I’ve recently been finding new meals to make, other than my Manicotti, which I am famous for. I’ve decided I need to spend more time cooking in the kitchen and less time spending money eating out!

Starbucks or BUST!

What is it about Starbucks that makes it taste like heaven in a cup? A blast in a glass? Crack in a mug? I’ve never really been a big coffee drinker, but these days it seems like I need it to get through my day. It could all be mental, but most days it seems to…

Restaurant Review: Leo & Lily

Last weekend I went to this quaint little cafe- Leo & Lily– with my Trixie! She’d been there several times before and wanted to share the experience with me. It was a cute little restaurant that gave you the option of dining in or outside on the patio or sidewalk style. The presentation of the…

Dinner for One 

Since the diagnosis of my diabetes, I have been trying my best to follow my diet plan and eat as healthy as possible. I’ve been doing a pretty good job and I’ve been coming up with all types of creations! I’ve even been doing a better job while grocery shopping. I don’t go to the…
