Yes, I admit it — I love beef. Growing up we didn't eat it often but when we did, it was usually ground beef, which I couldn't stand when I was a kid. I think I just got tired of it. When I was a teenager my mom owned a grocery store and she did better finally and we could finally afford good ...

Oh elote how I love thee! When I see corn on the cob at the grocery store I get so excited. It's as if it's a clear sign that summer is officially here. I especially love grilled corn on the cob slathered with layers of Mexican flavors. This style of corn on the cob is sold by Mexican street ...

As a kid I did not have the sweet tooth my brother and sister had. I always preferred a salty or spicy treat versus a sweet dessert. The only thing that distracted my savory tooth was when my mom baked homemade cakes. My mom used to make a warm classic pineapple upside-down cake made with yellow ...

Ok, confession…I have gained some weight. More than I care to admit. Although I usually loose weight during the summer, this season I gained. I stopped going to yoga, I traveled a lot, over indulged, and to be honest I just slept in. But school is starting this week for my kids and its time to ...

Where did the summer go? This weekend we were busy buying school supplies and going through the kids closets and drawers making a list of outgrown clothes to replace. Thankfully the one thing I didn't have to purchase this year was new school lunch bags. PackIt sent my kids spanking new lunch ...

My daughter is obsessed with anything chocolate and my son is all about vanilla or cream cheese, and I love incorporating fresh seasonal produce to my dessert. This dessert is a nod to all of our favorites. I love baking in my cast iron skillet and decided to bake brownies.

Hope you had a lovely 4th of July. I have been working and traveling quite a bit and this weekend was exactly what I needed. My family and I spent the entire weekend together – no work and no errands — just having fun. On the 4th we went on 7-mile hike and then we came home with our trembling ...

Buzzy Bee preschool is a great preschool. I started there when I was 2 1/2 years old and now I'm in the 7th grade and an A student. Buzzy Bee preschool taught me a lot when I was there, Ms. Sonia taught me Spanish, numbers, how to write my name, and the alphabet. When I was four my parents took me to kindergarten for a test to see if I can attend school and I passed thanks to Buzzy Bee preschool and Ms. Sonia. At Buzzy Bee there are a lot of toys donated by past students and outside there is a fun play ground for the kids to play on. Now when I do not have school I sometimes go to Ms. Sonia's to help her with the kids and all of them are so smart. There is a 3 year old who knows how to write her name all by herself. All the kids have very good manners like please and thank you and table manners. Overall Buzzy Bee preschool is a great school for little kids. From: Maya
