Carmine’s

Pizza Hut, Pizza Smut! With six busy, sports playing kids in the house, pizza is an easy dinner that we enjoy probably to often. We love to cook, but we also enjoy trying new foods, and new restaurants. While looking for somewhere different to have lunch the other day, we stumbled upon Carmine’s. We  fell in love with it! We ...

As a huge fan of Thai food, I was so excited to give this place a try. Charles had heard great things about it, and it’s close to home… BONUS! We only waited 5 minutes to be seated, and everyone seemed somewhat friendly. The menu had several good options, and we couldn’t wait to order! We began with crab Rangoon, ...

While on vacation in Florida, I tried a beignet for the first time. It was AMAZING! I missed it when we stayed in New Orleans, but caught up with my beloved beignet in Destin! I was surfing Facebook tonight, when what do I see? A “FREE BEIGNET” promo staring at me! Yay! I was happy with just the beignet, but the bonus ...

HOLY GUACAMOLE! Well, actually we didn’t have their guacamole… but HOLY BURRITO! This was by far the BEST Mexican food (and great service) we have had in Vegas! We went in around 6pm. The wait was maybe 5 minutes. Its is a little crowded inside, but totally worth it! Our waiter, Alfredo made a great recommendation for Charles. He had ...

As sushi lovers, we frequent 808 Sushi, not because it’s the best we’ve ever had.. but because it’s convenient. The service is quite inconsistent, so it’s hard to say good or bad. With the previous staff, it was like walking in to “Cheers”. Everyone knew your name and what you like to eat! Now, the service is just ok. Sometimes ...

Hi! What kind of milk would you like? White, Chocolate, or CHUNKY? While Charles and I were out playing storm chasers during a rainy day last weekend, we decided to stop by this little coffee shop and give it a try. It was really cute when we walked in, a cozy, trendy, little place.  I love places like this, so ...

Holley’s Cuppa

“I love you more than bacon” … This is the first sign I noticed when I walked into Holley’s Cuppa. I think the décor is super cute. Shabby chic. Pretty simple, but comfy. It’s very spacious, which I love. I cannot sit and enjoy my coffee in tiny little cramped coffee shops, I’d rather get it to go… I need my space! ...

Buffalo Wild Wings

I’ve never been a huge fan of the food at Buffalo Wild Wings, until tonight. In the past, I have tried their salads and their wraps. Tonight, I had the soft pretzels with queso dip and they were awesome! My kids had mac n cheese kids meals, which they also loved. Charles happily took advantage of the wing special. It’s ...

Checkers

In need of change as far as fast food, We were so excited for Checkers to open so close to our house! We don’t eat fast food often, but were definitely getting burnt out on the places near by. I am an In N Out lover when it comes to burgers, but this place came HIGHLY recommended by Charles. So, ...

Winger’s Roadhouse Grill

wingers final

On our way home from Salt Lake City, the constant “Are we there yet” questions coming from the back seat brought us to the decision to stop for a bite to eat. We figured we would take advantage of the fact that if they had food in their mouths, they couldn’t ask how much longer till we got home. From ...
