Living in LA, we encounter a lot of delicious Mexican food. Tacos, being one of the best Mexican food items out there, can get a little messy. Here are a few pictures demonstrating a way to keep the food in your tortilla rather than your lap…
ta da! No leaks!
It’s the weekend and avocado season is upon us! This weekend, Angel City Brewery, is throwing a party for the occasion. There will be avocado ale and avocado pops so keep things festive at the brewery. As a plus, there will be live music, which is free of charge during the event. Just come with a craving for all things avocado…
Have you been to a country and you don’t know what the other person is joking about? Most people usually smile and nod, hoping the other person doesn’t catch on how confused they are about the statement.
This is one of the best and frustrating things when conversing with someone of a different culture in or out of your country. I truly believe understanding sarcasm in a foreign tongue is a talent.

U has been waiting for a long time for these cherry pits. Apparently, in Switzerland, vendors and individuals would make pillows out of cherry pits. Any pillow, big or small, filled with these fragrant cherry pits are formfitting to the body. When heated, they cure any muscle ache. Check out the drying process and stay tuned to see the finished product 😀

Here is another one of U’s creations. Check it out:
6 pieces of fresh salmon fillets (buy one fillet and cut into pieces)
1 yellow onion, cut into thin rings
3 tomatoes cut into slices, or more if necessary
1 cup or more white wine, whatever type you have at home
Dill, fresh if available or dried works too, or chopped parsley
Salt and pepper
Place the salmon pieces into a oven proof dish, put the tomato slices on top of salmon, and put the onion slices on top of the tomatoes. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and the dill, or chopped parsley. Pour the wine over it and cover with aluminum foil. Bake at 375F for about 20 minutes, or until salmon is done.
Please enjoy with a smile 🙂
