Jane Green is one of my favorite authors and is considered one of the founders of the chick lit genre. Her most recent book, Promises to Keep, looks at the foundations of family relationships and the bond they share through the good times and the bad. Grab one of her books for your summer read and you won’t be disappointed.

This is seriously good, easy to make, and great for left overs (you can easily heat up the fish sticks and reuse the prepared toppings).
What you need:
- Fish Sticks (any brand or your favorite fish will work too!)
- Soft flour taco shells
- Cabbage (or lettuce if you don’t like cabbage)
- 1 Tomato
- 8-10 oz Sour cream
- 1 tablespoon Taco Seasoning
- 8 oz Shredded Cheese
What to do:
- Bake fish sticks according to package directions (I use 2-3 fish sticks per taco)
- Mix the sour cream and 1 tablespoon taco seasoning and set aside
- Cut the cabbage into this strips
- Chop your tomato
Fill the taco shells with the sour cream mixture, fish sticks, cheese and other toppings.
I like to use low-fat sour cream and a fillet of mahi-mahi when I’m trying to cut calories and fat. Enjoy!Filed under Food, Recipes | Comment (0)
The soft serve frozen yogurt craze is hitting the nation (again). We’re lucky to have two very good options near our home. I’m not gonna say that one’s better than the other. It’s frozen yogurt. It’s soft serve. It taste great on a 95 degree day. You’ll have to decide for yourself.
Yogurtland offers about 16 flavors of frozen yogurt along with an estimated 36 toppings ranging from fresh fruit to sugary cereal, nuts and assorted candies. What’s fun about Yogurtland is that it’s all self-serve and reasonably priced. You can mix and match as many flavors as you want. The choices are endlessly overwhelming and delicious! http://www.yogurt-land.com/
Pinkberry typically has 4-5 flavors on tap with a smaller selection of fresh fruit toppings, chocolates and even some liquid concoctions of mixed fruit juices. Everything tastes incredibly refreshing and if you go during their happy hour, you’ll enjoy your frozen treat for half-price (which I highly recommend since it’s a bit pricier). http://www.pinkberry.com
Both places boast a healthier, delicious treat with live and active yogurt cultures. Check their menus for non-fat or sugar free options and be mindful of your toppings if you’re watching calories, fat and sugar content.
Either way, you can’t go wrong with these delicious frozen treats. Indulge a bit before the weather takes a turn…Filed under Food, Restaurants | Comment (1)
