Oreo Brownie Trifle

I am all about National Oreo Cookie Day. Although I did not celebrate with a pack of Oreos, I have to share this Oreo Brownie Trifle recipe I made a couple of months ago for my family. It’s super easy and won’t last long once you put it out. I hope your family enjoyed this recipe as much as mine did.

Corn & Zucchini Chowder

I usually don’t eat soups once the weather gets warm. However, after attending the Macy’s Culinary Council event with Celebrity Chef Dana Herbert, where he mentioned adding fresh juice to your soups, I was inspired me to try a spring soup. I already had some zucchini in the fridge and fresh corn happened to be on sale, so I decided to make a corn and zucchini chowder. And being the meat lover that I am, I added some shrimp as well. I hope you enjoy this soup as much as I did.

Five Sixty by Wolfgang Puck – Dallas, TX

Working long hours on show site can be very exhausting, so having a good restaurant or two in your hotel, comes in very handy. Thankfully the Hyatt Regency Dallas had several dining options, so one night my co-workers and I decided to check out Five Sixty by Wolfgang Puck. I’d seen lines at the hostess desk for the restaurant, so I hopped on my trusty Open Table app and made a quick reservation for three. Thirty minutes later, we walked up to the hostess desk and were greeted by the most friendly and knowledgeable host. He gave us a little history on the restaurant and the city of Dallas, then ushered us to the elevator. Five Sixty sits 560 feet atop the Reunion Tower and offers a 360-degree view of the Dallas skyline. So if you’re afraid of heights, you might want to skip this restaurant. But if you love a great view, then you will…

Ellen’s Southern Kitchen – Dallas, TX

Its been said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. However, breakfast happens to be the most skipped meal of the day for me, except for when I’m traveling. Whenever I travel, I like to find at least one good breakfast spot to try out. While in Dallas, Ellen’s was the chosen spot. Ellen’s Southern Kitchen came highly recommended by my friend Tiara who always eats there when she’s in town for a Cowboys game. Early Saturday morning, I met my boss and teammate at Ellen’s for breakfast. Word on the street is that it’s best to get there before 9 a.m. on the weekends. Anytime after 9, you’ll end up having to wait for a table. We arrive at 8 a.m., walked right in and were promptly seated. I started with a caramel macchiato, extra caramel. It was the perfect amount of caramel and caffeine to…

Sissy’s Southern Kitchen – Dallas, TX

A couple of months ago I was doing some research for the blog and came across Sissy’s Southern Kitchen. I was so excited by the menu choices, I immediately sent it to my co-worker/friend Lisa. We both decided that Sissy’s was a must visit on our trip Dallas. Once in Dallas, we decided to check out Sissy’s Southern Kitchen, Tuesday night. Our driver told us that we had made a great choice with Sissy’s and would enjoy our food. We walk in and the hostess informed us that there would be at least 1 – 1.5-hour wait for a party of 3. I was a little disappointed in the wait time, but looked around and saw a good number of tables filled. So we grabbed seats at the bar and ordered drinks while we wait for our table. I ordered a jalapeño margarita and fried green tomatoes minus the shrimp remoulade. I wasn’t…
