Stop Planning…Start Living

Life has taught me that no matter how much you plan, nor how sure that you will stick to your well thought out plan……. life will most assuredly….. if not always……give you a detour. A completely different route or just a whole new experience. Something you never thought of or even knew was possible. You have two choices,…

Spring Hair – Indian Remy? Yes, Please!

I recently heard of a new company that is specializing in Indian Hair Extensions or Weave called Bollyweave. Now when I first heard the name I thought it was a bit of a rip-off but totally catchy. We all know about India’s thriving movie industry often referred to as Bollywood or have at least seen…

Romance your Man with Bacalao

If you think that a gourmet dinner is what they serve at Red Lobster then this dish would not be for you and your man. However, if you are accustom to dining at unique one of a kind restaurants then you should give Bacalao con Arroz a go. I love bacalao, but it took me…

Labor Day – Brisket & Beer

Since it’s a holiday and all, I figured I’d whip up a little something for my brats. I went to Walmart at 5:00am this morning hoping to beat the crowd. It was a great time to go but I should have eaten before I went in there cause I was so hungry I couldn’t remember…

Kinky Curly Summer Hair

  I figured it’s time that I talked about my hair. Well, rather my love of weave. I have a hair addiction I must admit. I just can’t help it. Hair is like a really great pair of comfortable shoes, you love to wear them, and there comfortable. You just can’t beat that! I installed…

Blessings from China

As I sit here contemplating what to do next and how to handle this additional sat back. I read over a note written to me by my friend in China. The title of the note was simply “‘You are in China for a reason’. She was right. I felt that I was there to understand…

Starting a Business – ‘Can I do it?’

I’m scared as hell of starting my own business. Although i’ve been trying to do just that since 2008. I went and hired a company to do my logo, design a website and make business cards. Yet, the website they made sucked ass, the business cards had the wrong address and my so-called business partner/…

Lay’s Paella

Clearly, I got my cooking mojo back. I’m not sure if it was the colorful cookbook I got for a dollar or the email from YouTube telling me I could make a couple dollars for my videos (from the ads that will be displayed on my channel). This weekend I did some serious food shopping…

Thank you Michelle Bernstein

Lately, I’ve had no desire to cook. I totally lost my motivation. I went to half-price books today looking for inspiration, and I found it for a buck. That’s right $1 for Michelle Bernstein’s Cuisine a Latina cookbook. I decided to try and make all of her recipes it should take me till late September…

Back On Track

I’ve been a busy bee these past few months. Shaking of fake friends, insane family members and the ex from cravyville. Definitely a wild few months! With all this I still managed to build my first app. Now I have to jump through Apple’s hoops to get it in the app store….yay me 🙂 I’m…

Urban Girl Hotpot (Salmon & Rice Noodle Soup

One of the dishes I absolutely loved in China was hotpot. I would go to the restaurant at the bottom of the hill from my apartment, and eat hotpot as if I were Chinese. My daughter would place the order because she picked up on the language quick. The waitress would look at my daughter …
