NJ Restaurant Review: Mambo Cafe

South Florida does well with its variety of cuisine, especially when it comes to Latin-influenced restaurants. Cuban, Colombian, Peruvian — there are some really amazing restaurants down here. When my mom told me about a new Colombian restaurant that opened, I was a little skeptical. Colombian in South Jersey? Now that’s something new. But she insisted […]

Dad & Grad Party in NJ and Revel, Atlantic City

I’ve visited home so much over the past couple of months. The summer was jam-packed with family events, putting me on a plane to Jersey multiple times. First there was Rebecca’s school musical, The Wedding Singer. She had one of the lead roles – Holly, the bitchy, slutty cousin of Julia. She was PERFECT. I […]

Escape from Hurricane Isaac: NJ Visit Part 3

Being that I’ve gotten to be this crazy baker/chef/food fanatic, my family wanted to see what I could do. My sister and one of her best friends requested I bake something, so I had to come up with something good to impress them. I decided on a banana-Nutella bread, loaded with chocolate chips and topped […]

Escape from Hurricane Isaac: NJ Visit Part 2

Saturday was my cousin Katie’s wedding in Old City, Philadelphia. The wedding ceremony was in Old St. Joseph’s Church, the oldest Roman Catholic Church in Philly. Katie looked absolutely stunning; her dress was gorgeous. I loved how different it was — white mermaid style bottom with a strapless silver glittery top, separated by a gorgeous […]

Escape from Hurricane Isaac: NJ Visit Part 1

Florida got a visit from Hurricane Isaac last weekend and I was lucky enough to escape before he arrived. It just so happened that the weekend I booked my flight home for my cousin’s wedding was the very same weekend that Isaac decided it was a good time to grace South Florida with his presence. […]
