Bodybuilding Foods | My First Shopping Trip

Most people do not know this about me but after Alex was born I had a trainer and a training buddy to work on body building. Stop... don't think of the beefy women you see that look like they can lift a man. When I lived in Turkey I was working with Keith and Ilya to do the "bikini body building." A totally different body look that is more lean yet still muscular. During my training months ... Read More Here...

Panko Breaded Baked Chicken

This is one of the easiest baked chicken recipes to make and what makes it wonderful is that the kids really enjoy it and ask for it often. The kids call it our  "go to" chicken recipe as when we can't figure out what to cook, this is the dish that is normally served. Sometimes I will do a chicken breast or slice it into the size of tenders --- either way, it's a hit at our house. You can serve ... Read More Here...

Look later for recipes for what I did ... Read More Here...

La Casita Blanca – San Juan, Puerto Rico

When we driving around San Juan trying to find La Casita Blanca, I was really doubting our GPS that we were in the right place. It's located in a residential area with small shops and stores and not a lot of other restaurants. We finally found it, parked, and as I was getting out of the car I saw a happy man leaning outside a window smiling and waving us to "come on inside." Still doubting we ... Read More Here...
