We are getting so excited for Spring Break! We look forward to the tropical destination as much as unwinding and spending quality time with our boys. I am so excited to make memories we will cherish forever. As I start to pack our bags for our upcoming vacation, I wanted to share my vacation must-haves with you!
We love spending the day on the beach*! Our days are filled with swimming, playing cards, collecting sea shells, listening to music and picnicking, all while listening to the waves crash against the shore. Is there anything better?
After a day on the beach, we enjoy biking or walking to town. Discovering local shops, restaurants and new people is always a highlight of the trip. With 6 boys, I don't have a lot of time to get ready, so I pack more casual-chic items that are comfortable and have a vacation vibe to them!
Vacation is also a time for us to stay active while having a ton of fun. From surfing to skateboarding, Frisbee to volleyball and everything in between - games and activities make up a large portion of our days. We never leave for vacation without our activities suitcase!
At 15 years old, I was unsure about many things. I was trying to figure out my sense of fashion, navigate high school and work on my self confidence. The only thing I was sure of was that I wanted to become a chef and open a restaurant.
In case you missed it, National Taco Day was last friday on Oct 4th. What better way to celebrate than to get in the kitchen and cook up some tasty tacos! Like many of you, I'm obsessed with tacos. I could eat them every single day and live a very happy life. Soft tortilla, crunchy tortilla, fish taco, chicken taco...I love them all!
How beautiful does this dish look! While I wish I could claim this as my own creation, this Duck Confit Tortellini was conceived by Marco Bonilla, a current student at The Culinary Institute of America. He's pursuing his associate degree in culinary arts at CIA's New York campus.
