*CLOSED* Fiery Confetti Noodles + Dreamfields Pasta Giveaway

March 10, 2014

I don’t know about you, but I’m over all this yucky cold weather and ready for some sunshine and warmth.  Luckily for me, we’ve had some very nice spring-ish weather the past couple days here in Atlanta.  Not so lucky for me, I’m in the middle of tax season. Boo! During the fall and winter, […]

May 29, 2012

Hello! I think I’ve found a solution for sharing some of the restaurants we go out to eat at without having to do long review posts for each one.  I did a restaurant round-up a few months back where I got to name the restaurant and show off our eats without having to wax poetic […]

December 9, 2010

Have I whetted your appetite for our Xi’an eats?  I hope so?  Just looking at some of the pics brings back memories and makes me wish I could go back for one last taste. Our first meal in Xi’an was not Chinese food — it was Japanese! Just outside where the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda […]

A Taste of China: Shanghai Eats

December 1, 2010

Bento, deconstructed

March 29, 2010

Thanks again everyone for your supportive words the other day, they were a great comfort to me.  I think I’m in one of those funks and whining about my weight is the easiest thing to dump it on.  It’s a constant struggle and I’m tired of fighting it.  Anyway, I’m sure I’ll talk about it […]

Big weekend!

September 20, 2009

This weekend had some important things going on, but of course we put our laid-back spin on things.  🙂 Mr. Spice and I had our 5th wedding anniversary on Friday.  We are going to celebrate it later on since we were both busy – me with work and he was busy organizing the Atlanta LinuxFest […]

Double-header: General Tso’s Chicken and Veggie Lo Mein

May 26, 2009

I think it’s safe to say that it’s no surprise that two of my favorite things to order in a Chinese restaurant are also two of the most fat and calorie-laden choices. It’s nice how things work out like that. Given those circumstances, it’s also fairly safe to say that these two items are high […]
