Quick Lunch: Antipasto Salad

There was nothing fabulous or fancy about this lunch it was simply delicious and super healthy! Well… Healthier than what I typically eat 🙂

This salad was delivered to my desk via the Press Room Detroit Cafe-Market. Which is a convenient, and brilliant idea to earn extra money for the restaurant and super convenient for those of us who are too lazy (just kidding) Too busy… to run downstairs. Anywhoo.. Just a quick check in and hopefully inspiration to someone who wants to eat healthier but, lacks ideas, and motivation.

Dinner with my Baby Sister 🍷

Last night my son and I went to spend a little “QT” with my baby sister who is a great home cook that treated our pallets to her wonderfully delicious Chicken Alfredo and Cheesy Garlic Bread.

In addition to the amazing pasta, she introduced me to what I think may actually be one of my new favorite wines 😍! It was a glass of Santero Moscato & Peach.. Yummm!

I typically don’t care for Moscato however, this one tastes like a fresh, crisp, sparkling, Chardonnay infused with Champagne and Peaches. This was such a delightful wine that I definitely plan to add this to my list of favorites!

We had an Amazing visit, the food was incredible and as always I can’t wait until our next visit!


Homemade Deep Fried Oreos

Happy Labor Day! While everyone’s enjoying barbecue on this Amazing end of Summer Day. I decided that since I’m home alone and craving something sweet🍬. Per my norm.. while the boys are away. Mama just wants to bake! Well, I ended up frying but, the end result came out absolutely friggin Ah-mazzzzzing! Directions: 1. Mix your Pancake Mix, Vegetable Oil, Milk, and Egg in a medium sized Mixing Bowl until you form a consistent Batter. 2. Add Vegetable Oil into a large frying pan or deep fryer, making sure that oil is 2″ deep. Heat oil until temp reaches 350 degrees. 3. Line an empty Baking Sheet or Plate with 2 layers of Paper Towel. 4. Dip Oreos into the Batter until they’re completely covered (I recommend 3-4 at a time). 5. Fry in the oil for 2-3 minutes until golden. 6. Remove from the oil & transfer to lined Baking Sheet or Plate with Paper Towels. 7. Plate your Oreos, Sprinkle with Powdered Sugar (optional).. I chose not too.. Not a huge fan. Let them cool and Enjoy! ❤
