My Valentine’s Meal – Fettuccine with Red Lamb Sauce

DISCLOSURE: This post is brought to you by Safeway.  However, all opinions and the meal I created are of my own choosing! Baby, it's cold outside! My nerves are still shot from our epic snow-laden trip in the RV. And since we’ve arrived in Portland, it’s been nothing but rain and freezing temperatures. That means one thing to me. Pasta. We don’t eat too much pasta, we’re more … [Read more...]

Project DISCOVER is Sahale Inspired

DISCLOSURE: This post is brought to you by Sahale Snacks.  All opinions and food I eat are of my own choosing, but Sahale Snacks is seriously a huge part of our life! It's such an honor to continue to work with Sahale Snacks. I was a big fan way before I worked with them on one of their brand ambassador projects and before they were a sponsor. Have you ever felt like a brand was created … [Read more...]

Locals I Love – Bob’s Red Mill

I love Bob's Red Mill. Love them. Love them. Love them! Our local grocery store in Berkeley carried a huge amount of their products and we bought buckwheat flour to make crepes, waffle mixes and various beans to make soups.  We are big fans of the food, but I knew very little about the company. When we planned our itinerary for the summer we knew we were going to spend some extra time in … [Read more...]

Traveling the World via my Stomach

Travel has always been a part of my DNA. Long before the adult gypsitis set in (yes, I made that up), and despite the fact that I was in a military family living all over the country and the world, I traveled through books. As a voracious reader, I went to the far corners of the world, soaked in the sights and sounds and learned about culture and history through the written word. At eighteen … [Read more...]

Locals I Love – Carmit and Jacob of Hatchup

As Mr. Misadventures and I ramble along through the Southwest, the hubby is thoroughly (obsessively) involved in capturing it in images and I am thoroughly (obsessively) trying to its discover great local food stories via its people and its products. It became immediately clear when we entered New Mexico that chiles are a big thing. Huge.  With the state question being 'red or green' there is … [Read more...]

J’adore #60 (Food and Beverage Edition 2)

I feel like I could write a food and drink focused J’adore every single week! And I cannot believe this is only the second edition for food and beverages! The benefit of being a lifestyle blogger focused on food and travel is that I often get to try out or learn about new products on a very frequent basis. I would love to travel every week, but I’ve got a full-time corporate gig so that isn’t … [Read more...]

It’s unComplicated – Mountain High Yoghurt

Drama-free Zone I consciously endeavor to have an uncomplicated life. My world is designated as a drama-free zone. That is not to say that bad things don't happen.  That part of life (cat surgeries, layoffs, sprained ankles) cannot be controlled.  Drama can. I favor minimalism when it comes to home decor. My only fault being I have a few too many books, although with my e-reader I am not … [Read more...]

What I love about Mary's Secret Ingedients is not only does Mary Frances source great products but she also creates … [Read more...]
