Miami Spice: Il Mulino, Sunny Isles Beach

An array of bread choices at Il Mulino.

Miami Spice month-and-a-half is an excellent opportunity to try new restaurants, or old favorites, with a pre-set three-course menu for $39 per person. My parents seized the opportunity to take us to Il Mulino for our anniversary. When we lived in New York, we were one . . . → Read More: Miami Spice: Il Mulino, Sunny Isles Beach

Chicken Soup and Leftovers: A Week of Meals

That is a lot of chicken soup!

When I make chicken soup, I make a lot of it. With dozens of people in and out over the holidays, it never goes to waste. Plus, having extra is never a bad thing. As the Jewish holidays approach, I plan ahead and make the chicken soup . . . → Read More: Chicken Soup and Leftovers: A Week of Meals

Park City, Utah: Eating Deer Valley

Vegetable pizzette at The Brass Tag.

Admittedly, my favorite part of any ski day is lunch, and I am happy to report that Deer Valley dining is just as good in the summer as in the winter months. Although we had limited time and did not stop at every venue, we did hit up . . . → Read More: Park City, Utah: Eating Deer Valley

Park City, Utah: Deer Valley Summer Fun

Deer Valley is stunning any time of year.

Park City is synonymous with winter sports: skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, ski jumping. Pretty much anything you can do on skis happens in Park City. Historically, FKGuy and I have visited our friends in Park City mainly in the winter. Although FKGuy has skied other mountains, . . . → Read More: Park City, Utah: Deer Valley Summer Fun

Eating Moab, Utah: Desert Bistro, Miguel’s Baja Grill

There is always room for dessert.

America’s national parks are wonderous to visit, but they are not known for being in areas of culinary greatness. Nonetheless, I chose which area to travel (Bryce vs. Arches/Canyonlands) based solely on where I thought we would have a better anniversary meal. No, I am not joking. After . . . → Read More: Eating Moab, Utah: Desert Bistro, Miguel’s Baja Grill

Moab, Utah: Canyonlands National Park

The vistas are never ending.

A long, hot day in Arches was immediately followed by a slightly-less-long and not-nearly-as-sweltering day in Canyonlands National Park. Forty minutes of driving a virtually empty road, with several hairpin curves along the way, led us to the gate of Canyonlands. Our route took us to Islands in the . . . → Read More: Moab, Utah: Canyonlands National Park

Moab, Utah: Arches National Park

I will take any excuse to see my friends. I’ll also take any excuse to turn attending a wedding or bar mitzvah into a vacation. That is how we ended up in Moab, Utah, at Arches National Park (and Canyonlands, but that is another post.) Our usual Park City visits happen with several feet . . . → Read More: Moab, Utah: Arches National Park

Live Joyfully, Vivez Joyeux, A Key West Wine Bar

Vivez Joyeux

I groaned audibly when I heard there was a new wine bar in town. Do we need another one? Then we stopped in for a glass of wine at the new Vivez Joyeux, and I could see why they decided to open. Vivez Joyeux means Live Joyfully in French, and . . . → Read More: Live Joyfully, Vivez Joyeux, A Key West Wine Bar

My Husband Started Cooking Again

Chopping garlic requires concentration.

It is possible that I am the only one that remembers the days when FKGuy would cook. (I don’t recall him ever cooking for anyone else.) When he was in law school and had free time on his hands he did cook a bit. Now, not so much. Yesterday, my . . . → Read More: My Husband Started Cooking Again
