Reviewing Taco Cabana's New Flame-Grilled Chicken Tacos and the New Premium Lunazul Tequila Margarita


Disclosure: I received samples for review purposes.  The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.  I was not financially compensated for this post.

Taco Cabana invited me to be part of its blogger tasting program to let you know about some of their new menu items (I know, it's a rough gig, but these are the things I do for you, my dear readers).  Being ever the foodie and budget-seeker, I was not one to pass up the opportunity to try these with my family, since we already love "Taco C" (as the Fab Fam affectionately calls it) for both the quality and the great prices.



In early October, Taco Cabana debuted three new tacos, a new house-made margarita, and a new Crispy Chicken Bites kid's meal.  Here is what we thought of each!

Family Travel Bucket List: Hunting for the Loch Ness Monster in Scotland


Even having grown up in America, I heard about the legends of the Loch Ness Monster since I was a young child. This mysterious, mythical creature was synonymous with Scotland in my mind. When we found ourselves planning our time in Scotland as part of our U.K. road trip, visiting Loch Ness was a requirement for the trip. Not only did I want to see the famed loch for myself, but I was also so excited at the idea of my two young sons getting to experience it. This way, as they hear about the Loch Ness Monster in school or from friends, they will have a real memory to associate it with.

Join me at the Macy's Culinary Council event with Chef Anthony Lamas at The Domain in Austin this Saturday!


This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of Macy’s; however, all thoughts and opinions are my own

What are you doing this Saturday, Nov. 11 at 2pm?  I know where I’ll be… at Macy's at The Domain in Austin, Texas for the Culinary Council event with Chef Anthony Lamas!  I am excited to spend the afternoon learning from the chef, who takes some of his cooking inspiration from his Puerto Rican heritage, just like I have.  Possibly the best part of attending this FREE event, is that there will be plenty of food and drinks to enjoy!  If you’ve never been to a Macy’s Culinary Council event, you really should come out and enjoy the fun!

As if free food prepared by the master chef isn’t incentive enough, here are some other bonuses for attending:
  • RSVP and receive a $10 Macy's Gift Card at the event!  Here are the RSVP details: http://bit.ly/LamasInTX
  • While at the store, feel free to explore the latest in cookware and gadgets for your kitchen.  Plus with any purchase of $35 or more in the Macy's Home Department, you receive a special gift and a copy of Chef Lamas' cookbook Southern Heat (which he will sign for you)!

Porcupine Meatballs Recipe


Porcupine meatballs were one of my favorite meals that my mother made when I was growing up.  Thankfully my own family loves this one too!  Today I am sharing my version of porcupine meatballs, which is adapted from the one my mother makes (our sauces are different).
