I love Trader Joes Turkey Burgers!  4 to a box in the frozen section. Sauté in a Pan with Olive Oil and Fresh Herbs and Spices or just a sprinkle of Kosher Salt and Cracked Pepper. Cook approx. 4-5  minutes each side. Super easy and really good.  Must have Sandwich Thins are my favorite too.  *You have seen me use these for my Tuna Melts.  Dress up the burger however you’d like. I love this for lunch. Trader Joe’s Burgers not filled with all the fillers like the other Turkey Burgers I’ve tried. Whats for lunch?

Recipes, What's happening right now

Idea for Pork Tenderloin


IDEA: Take a Whole Tenderloin (and instead of cooking it whole) Cut into 2 to 3″ Medallions and cook like you would a Tenderloin (Filet Mignon).  Super fun and super yum!  Marinate and Grill.  *Marinade in this picture is Olive Oil, Red Wine Vinegar and my Kona Coffee Rub and Prime Rib/Meat Rub combo!  Super good together.

"Shout Outs", What's happening right now

Rango Honey, Tempe Arizona! This is incredible! Check it out!


This wonderful gal named Kimberley Deane who lives in Minnesota reached out to me via email after she saw the story about me in the Lake Minnetonka magazine.  She does a lot of fundraising and wanted me to do a hosted dinner (but sadly I don’t live there so that didn’t work out) but anyway, it turns out she is the National Sales Manager for a Honey Company in Tempe, AZ.  How cool is that?  She shipped me this beautiful selection of Honey along with Bee Pollen and Raw Honey Comb.  I am so excited to try it and also to experiment with it through new recipes.  I will share them with you as I create them.


If you go to the website you will see helpful tips on Honey and a Recipe page as well. The website has a striking design and is beautifully laid out. I look forward to learning more about all the unique flavors of honey she sent to me.  Also about the Bee Pollen and the Raw Honey Comb. IMG_3162IMG_3165IMG_3164


I’m excited for you to check out her website and to explore the recipes on her site.  If you love honey and would like it shipped it comes beautifully packaged.  I’m in love with the colorful design on the label.  I will let you all know how the Honey is as I venture in!

Maui Wines, Maui, HI


Did you know that Maui Wines is the only actual Winery on all the Hawaiian Islands?

Absolutely gorgeous property at Maui Wines, long drive up with a fabulous view. With Johns work we also got a private tour of the Vineyard which over looks the ocean and Molokini Crater.  Very surreal.



The Wine Tasting room had a beautiful store and the Wines were excellent!  


Have you ever seen a Pineapple Growing?  It was right on the property as we entered the Wine Tasting room.
