New Experience: My First Wine Club Shipment ❤


I am so excited to officially be in the Wine Business! I posted last month that I joined Wine Shop At Home® as an Independent Wine Consultant and I must say after only 1 month it’s been the best business decision yet. So far, I’ve met some really amazing people, introduced my business to my co-workers and have gotten a ton of positive feedback, and potential customers. I’ve gotten a few Personal Wine Tastings on the Books and a few Sales. I’m super excited with growing momentum every day. Any whoo, Last Wednesday, I received my first Wine Club Shipment and I’m a happy camper. I couldn’t wait to open my little Blue Box. I was supposed to do my first unboxing video however, I haven’t been feeling all that well and decided to do a blog unboxing with pictures.

I signed up for the Artisan Collection® Club Select Membership which is a Monthly 2 Bottle Subscription. For only $39.95/month I will receive my choice of 1 Red Wine (Personal) and 1 White Wine (for my BF, Friends & Family) every single month ❤. You can choose (All Reds, All Whites, or Mixed.. which is what I chose). In addition to the Club Select Membership, they offer a Club Elite Membership 4 Bottles for $64.95 and a Pre-paid Club Option for people who enjoy gifting wine 🙂 3, 6, and 12 months.

I received a 2016 Halcyon Pinot Noir (Red), and a 2017 Halcyon Chardonnay (White). I love the fact that both Wines came with product card that tells you all about the Wine and Pairing Ideas and on the back of the card is a Recipe Pairing.

The Pinot Noir “Red Wine”: came with a Chicken Alfredo and Rice Casserole Recipe in which I will definitely make soon.. minus the Chicken or maybe I’ll use Vegetarian Chickn from Kroger or Whole Foods and for the “White Wine” Chardonnay: they provided a Cauliflower Macaroni and Cheese Recipe ❤ I can’t wait to try this one! Thinking of making it this week.

Overall, the Pinot Noir was Amazing! It was a strong and powerful wine with strong fruity aromas of red fruit such as strawberry and raspberry as indicated on the info card. It was delicious and totally has me eager to order more wines (individually) whilst I await next next monthly shipment. In all honesty, I think that I may upgrade my membership this fall (4 Bottles) 1 bottle every week 🙂 totally makes sense!

Until next time.. .

New Experience: (French Cuisine)

This weeks posts comes from my fancy little lunch experience..

from Le Petit Zinc Detroit.


I’ve been wanting to experience this cute little restaurant since like forever. Whenever, I search for great Vegetarian Restaurants near me or the best Brunch Restaurants near me Le Petit Zinc Detroit always pops up in both searches. The Restaurant is located in Midtown 70 W. Alexandrine St., Detroit, MI 48201. They have a pretty nice menu offering everything from Specialty Crepes, Very French Breakfast Items Such as Cereales Avec Yaourt Et Fruit Frais (Granola with Yogurt or Milk and Fresh Fruits) to Croissants with Jam and Tartines (Toasted Baguettes with Jam) however, because it was lunch time and I was feeling a little hangry..  I chose to look at their actual food Menu, this is where the food options got real.. lol. There were plenty of dishes to choose from but, because I’m a simple Soup kinda girl.. I chose to stick with what I know for my first experience. The cool thing is that they offer online ordering via Grub Hub which is how I was able to place my lunch order.

I ordered the Ratatouille as my main course and Macarons for dessert.

There’s  only 1 word to describe them both.. Délicieux!



Vegetable Stew made of Eggplant, Yellow Squash, Zucchini, Onion, and Tomatoes served with a side of sliced Baguettes.


And.. the real experience (Drumroll)…  the Macarons!!! This was my first time ever having Macarons and they were absolutely amazing! The perfect little sweet treat. I love the fact that they had a firm outer-shell, a soft bite and were really sweet and full of flavor, they didn’t taste like confectioners sugar.. Like I’d imagined. They were pretty delightful and I must say that I fell in love at first bite.

Now, that I’ve finally tried them.. I want more!

I am planning to visit Le Detroit Macaron

Le Macaron Detroit

They have a cute little shop located in Hamtramck.  However, for the Summer months they are a Market Vendor in Downtown Detroit with an even cuter little Pop Up Shop in Capital Park, which is actually in walking distance from my job. I am planning to visit them this week to try as many flavors as I possibly can. I’m especially excited to try one of their Signatures.. The Fruity Pebbles Macaron!!

Anywhoo.. I’ll get more into detail next weekend when I post all about that experience.

New Experience (Food Truck): NoshPit Detroit

It’s Food Truck Season here in Downtown Detroit!

During the summer months we like to take our lunch breaks outside in and around Campus Martius and Cadillac Square where there’s always great food, live music, and tons of interesting things to do and see. One of my personal favorite activities is visiting the food trucks for a different lunch experience every day. Last week, I saw on Instagram that a Vegetarian/Vegan Restaurant that I’ve been dying to try was going to be in Cadillac Square all week so, I had to pay them a visit.

Because, I’ve been planning to visit their Hamtramck Restaurant since their Grand-Opening earlier this year, I already knew that I couldn’t wait to try “The Larry” which is a Vegan Reuben made with Corned Beets, Sauerkraut, Vegan Cheeze or Sharp Cheddar , House-made 1000 Island Dressing, on fresh-grilled NY Kosher Rye.

I might have failed to mention that one of the main ingredients… ❤ “love” made this sandwich incredible. This Vegan spin on a traditional/classic sandwich was very delicious and over exceeded my expectations. I have never had Beets on anything outside of a Salad and was very pleasantly surprised on how flavorful this Sandwich truly was. Overall, I really enjoyed the experience.. good food and super friendly staff. I can’t wait to visit the restaurant to try more of their signature dishes!

If you’re ever in Detroit (Hamtramck) and want a good Vegetarian/Vegan meal, I highly encourage you to stop into Nosh Pit located at 2995 Yemans, Hamtramck, MI 48212

New Experience (Restaurant) : Detroit Vegan Soul ❤

I recently decided to treat myself to a fancy lunch which led me to the cutest little Vegetarian Soul Food Restaurant here in Detroit, Detroit Vegan Soul. They have two locations one near my work and another near my home which is absolutely amazing.

I chose to visit the location near my home and was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant had a really nice vibe, it was cute and cozy, and the staff was friendly which is always a bonus.

I had visited their website menu prior to going to the restaurant to get a feel for what they offer and instantly fell in love with Everything on the menu. I ultimately decided to try the Fried Tofu “Catfish” Dinner.

The dinner came with 4 pieces of Fried Tofu “Catfish”, Vegan Tarter Sauce, 2 Hush puppies, Red Skin Potatoes & Onions, and a Broccoli/Corn Medley. Everything was absolutely incredible. I must give a big kudos to them.. That Fried Tofu was Bomb! I’ve learned a neat little trick on how to make delicious Tofu (recipes coming soon) however, after trying this I apparently still have a lot to learn.

Overall, I loved everything about the experience and I now have a new fave place to visit that’s close to home. ❤


New Food Experience: Veggie Bibimbap

Making the decision and commitment to live a healthy Vegetarian life has been so exciting! Everyday is a new experience. A little over 3 weeks in and I feel absolutely incredible.

Today, I tried Bibimbap a Korean Veggie Bowl with Rice, Roasted & Sauteed Veggies, topped with a fried Egg and Spicy Kochujang Sauce.

When I tell you this dish gave me life… I mean it gave me my whole entire life!

This dish was rich and flavorful and contained an explosion of flavors from sweet to spicy, with the perfect hint of salty from the seaweed. The Vegetables were made to perfection… There was Spinach, Broccoli, Zucchini, Squash, Lima Beans, Cabbage, and strips of Seaweed Wrap. This was different from pretty much anything that I’ve ever eaten. I did really enjoy the dish overall and am super inspired to try my hand at recreating this at home. I can’t wait to try it and share the recipe. Stay posted to see how it turns out.
