Strawberries: To Hull or Not to Hull

Perfectly ripe seasonal strawberries are best eaten out of hand, of course, and hulling strawberries—removing the green leafs and stem from the top of the berry—makes them more elegant and easier to eat when served both plain or as a summertime addition to salads, desserts and even fruit infused beverages {I love to add them to a pitcher of water with some mint and they're fantastic in homemade sangria}! {Product provided for review/feature consideration}

For the Discerning Friend Who Has Everything-Give the Gift of Maestro Dobel Tequila!

photo source: Maestro Dobel

Everyone has at least one person in their lives that is IMPOSSIBLE to shop for. For me, it's my hubby and my dad: they both have caviar taste and I'm generally on a tuna fish budget. It makes it uber frustrated when it's time to buy gifts-I want to be able to impress them while thinking out of the box and not breaking the bank. That's a really hard combination! I know that I'm not alone in this conundrum though. Perhaps there's a man in your life with a taste for the finer things, or one that seemingly has everything. What can you possibly buy him that he will really appreciate? Obviously something with as much taste and understated elegance as them, yet something they do not yet possess: Maestro Dobel Tequila. {Product provided for consideration}

Game Day Feasting! AKA: Cumin Spiced Steak Tacos with Chipotle CherrySalsa

Like most successful families, we try to maintain a united front at all times, but when it comes to football, all bets are off! I’m from New Jersey and she’s from Georgia, so it should go without saying that my wife and I don’t necessarily see eye to eye come game day. Take it from me, there’s nothing worse than sitting next to her (yelling "RISE UP!!" every chance she gets and goading our girls to do it as well) while watching my Giants lose to her beloved Falcons. But yesterday, she and I did manage to agree on one very important thing…GAME DAY CUISINE!!
