Back in February we had a brunch at IHOP where my husband and I both ordered one of the new breakfast items on the menu. The Fiesta Omelette with corn cakes on the side. Because we ordered something new, they’ve asked us to fill up a form to review the dish and we’ll each get $3 rebate in the mail. We said sure and almost 3 months alter, we got the rebate cards...Read More

For my son’s 15th birthday, we decided to try out Pizza Hut’s Crazy Cheesy Crust Pizza(+wings). It sure looked good in the commercial but then again pretty much everything looks so much better in ads. Check out that picture above. Perfectly round and just waiting for you to grab it.
In reality this is what it looks like. That’s a large size by the way...Read More

Decanting wine divides opinion among wine experts. While some say that it only serves to impress, others say it is a vital means of getting the best out of certain bottles. If you are unsure about whether you should decant a wine, this guide should answer all of your questions.
Why Decant Wine?
While the practicalities of decanting are debatable, it cannot be argued that it is a great way of impressing your guests and establishing that you know what you’re doing. High end restaurants will always decant their more expensive bottles, more as a badge of quality than any effect it has on taste.
The first effect that decanting has on the wine itself is allowing it to aerate. Corks are porous, allowing wine to oxidise in the bottle by letting them mix with the air over time. Leaving wine to stand open gives it more time to effectively mix with the air, having various benefits depending on the wine. You may have noticed people swirling wine in the glass, this has a similar effect, albeit more instant.
Secondly, decanting separates wine from any sediment that it may have produced during the production or aging process. Yeast, skins, stems and seeds can all settle in the bottle, while this is harmless, it could impair the taste.Read More

While meat shopping at Food Lion last Saturday we walked by the pasta aisle and saw these microwavable palm-sized bowl of meatballs. The picture of the meatballs with marinara sauce looked yummy. But I think everyone knows by now that in most grocery items, the real product is so much different than the pictured ad. Not to mention it’s $4 prize for a small package.
The meatballs swimming in yummy marinara sauce must have haunted my husband’s mind so once we got all the meat and other grocery items that we needed, we headed on to the frozen aisle to look for frozen cooked Italian meatballs, then went back to the pasta aisle to get a jar of marinara sauce because a regular spaghetti sauce that I already have in the pantry just wouldn’t do. Bertolli is delish, by the way. Then we went to the freshly baked bread section to get sub rolls.
As soon as we got home I dumped the entire bag of Farm Rich Italian style meatballs in a pot, then poured over the marinara sauce. I let that simmer while I put the groceries away.

The original plan was to have breakfast at IHOP on Saturday for my husband’s birthday which was actually on the 20th. The little girl was sick though so that didn’t happened. Scott and Caine had a Father and Son day instead which started at Waffle House and they went from there. Emma and I stayed in the house, watched DVDs and ate Cheetos. We did the IHOP brunch today, Sunday and it was delicious.
The picture above is Caine’s Strawberry and Banana Crepes.
