I am a huge popcorn lover, as many close friends and family can attest to. And a recent article in the Toronto Sun reported on some research that states that popcorn is good for you. After doing my dance of joy to the Popcorn Gods, I made myself an air-popped bowl of those healthy morsels. Yes, … More Mexican Snack Food
I had good intentions. But it all went terribly wrong. After Armando gave me my amazing birthday surprise on Monday, I wanted to do a thoughtful gesture in return and what better way to do that than to make him a 5-course Valentine’s Day Dinner the next day. He was travelling with work and would … More Valentine’s Day Disaster

In the middle is an empty dance floor, and at the end … More Dance Me Back to Another Time
Armando planned a date night the other night. Before all the “Awwwwws” start and the “He’s so sweet” fills the room, he doesn’t get full credit for it (but I will give him most of it). Lately, I’d been feeling neglected. Everything else had seemed to become a priority but me. This of course, was … More Nagging for a Date Night
