Boysenberry Mojitos

Summer is in full swing in Southern California, and while we had a cool spell last week, we are heating up again just a wee bit. Looks like some showers on Friday, with a high of 90 degrees! I can’t say that I’m looking forward to that inevitable humidity, but AM glad that there’s a possibility to get more water in our drought stricken ground.

Hello, hello beauty bomb-shell! It’s Friday! Woohoo! What are your plans for the weekend? I’ve been super busy with all kinds of stuff lately (hence the absence from this corner), but it’s all for good reasons. Before I get to the meat of the post, if you’re in Southern California, and don’t have anything going on this Saturday or Sunday (June 11 & 12), I’ve got you covered. My buddy Steve Seabury is hosting the first Hot Sauce Expo on the West Coast. Not only does he make some great hot sauce of his own, there will be tons of other hot sauce vendors there. Who can’t resist good ‘ol eating competitions? There will be spicy burrito eating competitions, pizza, tacos…. Also a bloody mary, and margarita mixdown. It’s going to be so much fun. I’ll be there Sunday if you want to come and hang out!

A Salad inspired by the traditional Cuban Sandwich

Hey there gorgeous! Summer will be here in two days; can you feel it? Here in Southern Cali, we’re pushing 100, and while that is definitely hot, I’m doing my best to embrace it. The Inland Empire Food Bloggers got together last weekend to share some of our favorite comfort foods, but we put a spin on it – we turned them into salads!

Dragonfruit from Melissa's Produce

Have you ever seen such an alien fruit such as this? This is a dragonfruit, and you can definitely tell where it gets its name. It’s leaves look like dragon scales, and that gorgeous color on the skin is sure to catch your eye. (more…)

Tequila Lime Chicken Burger for National Burger Day, May 28th, 2015

Whoa there babe! National Burger Day is coming up on Thursday, May 28th! But first, how was your Memorial Weekend? I spent Monday working, and reflecting on the life of my Father, who served in the Army as a part of the band. He was a trombonist, and while I didn’t get to hear him play too much, I did spend quite a bit of time with him at his shop repairing the organs and keyboards of the musicians of Las Vegas. Music was always a part of our lives, and I was pretty excited when I got to repair Englebert Humperdinck’s keyboard one summer. I was not only touching, but FIXING the instrument of a famous person!
