DIY Easy Jolly Rancher Lollipops

Jolly Rancher Lollipops are all over Pinterest. When I was putting together a Willy Wonka-themed party room, I brainstormed on how to decorate the room based on a book and two movies where everything was edible and I was on a very limited budget. A lot of detail went into the room which was part …

Big-A** Sandwiches

Portland, OR- This sandwich cart was featured on the Travel Channel, so we gave it a try when in Portland.

Their signature beef …

Stratos Greek Taverna

Dallas, TX- Stratos Greek Taverna touts itself as providing “Global Greek Cuisine”.  The Gyro was ordinary in flavor, had too many giant discs of fresh onion, and the only highlight was the tzatziki sauce.

Baby Washcloth Re-Do

Over the past two summers, I’ve been getting to know my sewing machine. Mind you, I’ve had it for about 9 years. I can’t do anything fancy like sew myself a wardrobe or anything, but I can thread the bobbin and sew a straight line, sorta. I started with a pillow case for my son’s …

Philly Cheesesteak Meatballs

Yesterday, I was chatting with my cousin, Stretch, about food, as always.  She mentioned to me that this was Mini Muffin Tin week on Rachael Ray’s show. I’m all about making whatever I can in a bite size format. So I went to Rachael’s website, saw the picture of the “mini cheesesteaks”, immediately pinned it …

Dynasty Restaurant

Racine, WI- This is a local favorite. Their specialty is Greek cuisine and regular diner fare. The wait is never long and service is always attentive. The portion size is incredible!
