I Love You Hug GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

Love is definitely in the air this month and while some are soaking it up, others are reaching for their pollution masks. Each year, Valentine’s Day raises its heart-shaped head and the population seems to instantly divide into the happy, the scornful and the downright anxious. 


The controversial holiday raises the question of relationship status and commitment, but why? Why do we feel the need to celebrate finding someone to match our desires when we look for that in every other aspect of our lives as well? 


Think about it, how many online quizzes did you take last year, trying to determine which Harry Potter character you are or which A-list celebrity would play you in a movie? We’re constantly on the search for our best match; the jeans that make our legs look longer, the hair colour that makes our eyes look brighter and the person who makes our heart beat faster.

Keto Cranberry Lemon Loaf Featuring Steviva Blend

I took The Steviva Holiday Keto Blogger Recipe Challenge and created a Keto Cranberry Lemon Loaf. It’s the perfect bread for holiday entertaining! This recipe uses Steviva Blend, a combination of erythritol and pure stevia in granular form. It’s twice as sweet as sugar so you can use half as much. Plus, Steviva Blend contains zero carbs and calories, and no glycemic impact.

When baking, replaces table sugar about 2 for 1 (2 cups of table sugar = 1 cup of Steviva Blend).

How’s it taste? I personally loved the taste. I especially loved that there wasn’t an aftertaste . I definitely recommend using Steviva Blend as a natural no calorie replacement for sugar.

The Great American Lobster Festival 2018| Detroit, Michigan

The Midwest’s largest lobster and seafood festival landed in Detroit, Michigan today. The Great American Lobster Festival kicked off their 3 day festival in a most delicious way. I was excited to be in attendance to take part in the Lobster Meal Experience. And oh what a delicious experience it was.

The Lobster Meal Experience

The festival was presented by Lobster Gram, who flew in live lobster from the cold waters of the East Coast. This lobster was AMAZING! It tasted so sweet and fresh. I enjoyed the whole lobster and lobster roll meal options. Yes, I’m greedy! Each came with potatoes and a piece of corn. So TASTY!

About to smash this lobster!

In addition to the Lobster Meal options, guests of the festival could also enjoyed lobster creations from several vendors. We’re talking Lobster Mac & Cheese, Lobster Fries, and Lobster Tacos! While noshing on your lobster be sure to stop and enjoy the live music line-up. This is even is family friendly so bring the kids! Did I mention that the Great American Lobster Festival is free to attend? Yes! Admission is free! You do have to options of purchasing The Lobster Meal Experience, which I highly recommend, or you can purchase food tickets to get food from any of the amazing vendors.

Loaded Lobster Fries!

If you are a big fan of lobster, definitely make your way to Detroit this weekend to get a taste!

*Big thanks to The Great American Lobster Festival for inviting me as your guest. I had an amazing time!

Coffee Shop Love: Buteco [Atlanta,GA]

Today my daughter and I stopped by Buteco in Atlanta to check out their espresso offerings. First of all, it’s a super cute place. Love the vintage Brazilian vibes! The inside is pretty cozy, but they have plenty of space outside to enjoy your coffee, cocktail, or delicious food.

Yes! They offer much more than just coffee! They also offer an authentic Brazilian food and cocktails. On this trip I just order a Dirty Chai, which was wonderful. My daughter went for an Ice Chai Latte, which she gave 2 thumbs up. I’ll definitely be back to check out the rest of the menu!

I Had My First 100 Layer Donut and Fell in Love with Five Daughters Bakery

Five Daughters Bakery recently opened their new location in Ponce City Market. I’ve been seeing the Instagram post about how delicious they were. Well I finally got to taste for myself!

They are known for their 100 layer donut, their version of a cronut. Yummm!! It takes them 3 days to craft this croissant donut hybrid, but well worth the time. When I took a look at the many delicious choices, the one that was screaming for my to take it home with me was the Lime Meringue. It was so cute with its toasted meringue, dusted with lime zest. Gimme! After paying and have a photo shoot, it was time to taste this 100 layers of deliciousness. Yummmmmm.

That first bite was amazing! The second bite was even more amazing. I loved the lightness of the donut. I loved that the lime custard inside was not too sweet. The meringue on top was perfect! I absolutely loved everything single bite of this donut. Bravo. Five Daughters Bakery.Bravo.
