I love love love the new Beauty and the Beast movie. One of the best parts, of course, is the Beast’s library, so I wrote “Belle Would Be Enchanted by These 10 Lovely Libraries in Hotels” for USA Today 10Best.Read All Entries

In our house, spring means one thing: National Pi Day! We, of course, celebrate it as National Pie Day and we pretty much celebrate it all
year season long.
Everyone who knows us knows that Michael and I are both big fans of cream pie – and no one does them better than Marie Callender’s. They have eight different flavors, including Banana Cream, Key Lime and the appropriately-named I Love Chocolate Cream Pie – excuse me for drooling on my laptop – but our all-time favorite is Coconut Cream.

I got an email from Whole Foods Market this afternoon, letting me know that all of the yummy treats above are on sale this weekend for $5 or less.
Because I would do anything for you, my wonderful readers — and because I had a sudden craving for chocolate — I grabbed my car keys and got on the 5 at 3 p.m. on a Friday to head to Whole Foods Market Del Mar so I could test them myself and report back.
Oh, the sacrifices I make. [Read more…]

If you follow my blog (which I hope you do, and for which I am eternally grateful), you know that I’ve been traveling a lot this summer. In fact, I was only home six days in August, which may be why Michael looks so relaxed.
Anyway, if you’ve been following my trips, you know that one of the main activities on every single one of them is eating.
Although this is one of my favorite things to do and I genuinely look forward to it, it’s also a problem since I’m trying to stick to Jenny Craig — which is surprisingly easy to do when I’m home. [Read more…]
It seems only fitting that my first post back after two weeks in France would be about food, right?
Well, you can imagine how I felt going back to Jenny Craig this morning after indulging on those chocolate croissants, above, every single morning for breakfast. [Read more…]
Let me preface this by pointing out that whoever came up with that saying, “nothing tastes as good as skinny feels,” obviously never took a bite of this.
Let me also point out out that this is not a Jenny Craig food 🙂
Okay, so I was supposed to go for my Jenny Craig weigh-in last Thursday but I postponed it because I thought I had jury duty. (The court was actually closed that day but that’s a whole other story.)
I also postponed it because I had that coconut cream deliciousness from Extraordinary Desserts, above, for Michael’s birthday.
And a large popcorn during the screening of 50 Shades of Grey.
And this roll from our favorite sushi place, Katana. [Read more…]
