Good And Good For You – Sautéed Pork Tenderloin Medallions With Lemon-Garlic Sauce

I was ecstatic when I received an invitation to be part of the Publix and National Pork Board (NPB) “Good and Good For You” challenge team.

Dave’s Hot ‘N Juicy Is Fresh And Delicious

Last night, I tried a Dave’s Hot ‘N Juicy cheeseburger for the first time at Crane’s Roost Park in Altamonte Springs!

Contest is now closed. Congratulations to comments #6 and #17 (Whitney & Lori). Enjoy your free tea! I received a sample box of Sweet Leaf Tea for review. Sweet Leaf Tea offers delicious, organic, all-natural iced tea beverages. When it comes to tea, I usually prefer a fresh cup either steaming hot or shaken over ice, not from a bottle or can. But, this tea has changed my opinion! The packaging immediately caught my attention! From the fonts down to granny on the label, I was intrigued. There was even a…

Eat Street Taping In Orlando

Yesterday (which also happened to be the Fourth of July), the show Eat Street on the Cooking Channel interviewed me about The Yum Yum Cupcake Truck.

In addition to my interview, they also taped us walking up to the truck to place our order. Then, my son ate his favorite “blue” cupcake while…
