What a SWEET time we had at Hollywood & Highland

My son wanted to ride the Metro train for his birthday. So of course we planned a day trip, on a Thursday, from Redondo to Hollywood (so we could meet Daddy after work to celebrate the big 4!) The train trip itself was LONG for a just turned 4 year old … and was still too long for my 6 year old. Probably not a smart idea after a full day of school. But I’m sure they’ll remember it … crammed trains with rush...

Fresh Brother On The Doctors – Healthy Pizza

Fresh Brothers pizza has a “Fresh Kids Special” on their menu that is not only delish, but it is way healthy for kids and even for folks like “yours truley” who can’t stomach greens.  I have been talking everyone’s ear off about it for years!  My collegues eat it, my daughter’s school orders from them and a lot of influential moms love it!  Now, my thoughts on this place have been confirmed by...

Cocktail Hour At The Huntley In Santa Monica

I had been anticipating dining at the Penthouse in the Huntley Hotel for quite sometime. What better time to dine there than this past holiday season! The beautiful and modern entrance welcomes you as you take the elevator up 18 floors to the amazing penthouse. As the doors open you can’t help but be amazed by the 360 degree window views of stunning Santa Monica. With views like that the modern elegantly adorned room is further...

Sammy’s Woodfire Pizza In El Segundo

We were recently invited to dine at the new Sammys Woodfire Pizza and Grill in El Segundo.   I am not sure what your thought is on ambiance when eating at a food establishment, but for me, a major requirement is that “just like home” feeling.  I dined that night with my husband, parents and daughter and we all had a really great time and enjoyed our meal.  We had quite a spread at the table, but my personal favorites were...

Tacos El Junior Tijuana (Junior Tacos)

For quite a few years now, I have been venturing into Tijuana for some succulent fish and shrimp tacos from none other than “Tacos El Junior“.  This is not some run of the mill taco stand on the corner.  It is “the” place to go for a more gourmet-ish taste.  They have a whole lot on their menu, but this is one of those places you just go to without really ordering  anything else other than a  fish or shrimp...

Gluten Free Pizza dine-in or delivery throughout LA!

I have several friends that are gluten free (and I should be as well I’m sure but haven’t made the leap). And when they are in town I sometimes create special GF meals for them. But some days it is just easier to offer them Pizza. They never seem to hear me when I ask the first time. “So how does pizza sound for dinner?” and I hear a lot of Pfft, cshaaa, yeah right, kind of sounds back. So I ask again, “I know a great place for Gluten...
