Easy Lasagna Recipe

Looking for a good but easy lasagna recipe? Here it is! The hubby loves ordering lasagna when we dine out at Italian restaurants but he said it's nothing like the homemade lasagna that I make. I typically order Carbonara then we switch dishes when we've eaten our food halfway, so I'd have to agree, you're really going to love this.

I served my 3 cheese lasagna when my in-laws came over for the New Year. They said they loved it so I'm finally putting this easy lasagna recipe together to share with the fam bam and you guys.

Restaurant to Try in Phoenix: La Santisima

Last day in Phoenix! Last chance to try another really good restaurant in Phoenix before we drive back home. My cousin’s cousin - another foodie like me who travels to eat except she doesn’t seem to gain weight (Hi Jemille) recommended a restaurant to try in Phoenix called La Santisima.

La Santisima is a hole in the wall Mexican restaurant that just blends in into its neighborhood that you won’t notice it if you ever drive by it. But forget the exterior, forget the old looking interior as well and focus on what you’re going to order because the menu is massive. Even the salsa bar with over 10 types of salsa will confuse your palate in figuring out which is your favorite. They were all good and we haven’t even touch on the tacos and unique quesadilla and we were already full.

Best Phoenix Restaurants: Bobby Q

I may have tried the best tasting cornbread! We were on a 4 day trip to Phoenix and had planned to try the famous Pizzeria Bianco - it being one of the best Phoenix restaurants. Unfortunately, we just couldn’t wait for the hour long queue to try the restaurant. Yet, because of that, we were able to discover a really good barbecue place with a really good cornbread.

Traveling with the kids totally changes where and what time we can eat. Unable to wait and with little research, we drove to Bobby Q, also another one of the best Phoenix restaurants (based on the number of reviews its been getting).

Things to do in Phoenix with Kids: Children’s Museum of Phoenix

Looking for fun things to do in Phoenix with Kids? A visit to the Children’s Museum of Phoenix is a must. It was first on our itinerary and 3 hours at the 3-storey museum housed at the historic Monroe School Building was not enough.

Said to be one of the top 3 children’s museum in the nation, I was in awe at every detail of this 48,000 square feet museum. The night after our visit, I was inspired from our visit that I wanted to own or put up a children’s museum in our area.

Legoland Discovery Center Arizona: Fun Things to do in Arizona with Kids

It's our first time going to Legoland Discovery Center Arizona. We got a chance to visit one while on a vacation in Phoenix. They have a few locations in the US and in other countries but I guess we'll never have one close to Los Angeles because we have Legoland in Carlsbad. I believe they should though coz' it's a totally different concept.

If you're looking for fun things to do in Arizona or happen to be in Phoenix and want to take the kids somewhere fun, Legoland Discovery Center is just a few minutes drive away from Downtown Phoenix. It's located at a mall in Tempe, just side by side with Sea Life Aquarium, so you can hit both places in one trip.

Palm Springs Tram: World's Largest Rotating Tram Car

Riding the world's largest rotating tram car is quite an experience. I couldn't help but admire the snowy rocky cliffs of the Chino Canyon as we ascend to 8516 feet and how the Palm Springs Tram was able to transport towers into those cliffs to support cables of the tram. It's quite an engineering feat!

If you're looking for fun things to do in Southern California this Holiday, I would suggest visiting the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. We went on a Sunday after another great brunch at Shields Date Garden Cafe and the kids got to experience snow for the very first time.

Download Strawberry Shortcake Holiday Songs

If I can play holiday songs all year, I would. Oh but who's stopping me. Especially now that we can just download songs instead of waiting for the radio stations to play our fave holidays songs. This holiday, you can download Strawberry Shortcake songs.

Perfect tunes when you're driving around with the kids or baking at home like Strawberry Shortcake.

Legoland Food besides the Famous Granny's Apple Fries

Legoland! When one mentions Legoland, I immediately think of their famous apple fries. But I didn't realized, until our recent Legoland California trip, that there's actually other good food at Legoland besides apple fries.

Upon arrival at Carlsbad, we went ahead and check-in at Sheraton Carlsbad Resort and Spa (the hotel that gave us back gate access to Legoland) before proceeding to Legoland. So by 11 or 1130 when we got to the theme park, we decided to just eat lunch first before going around. Weirdly enough, the back gate access from Sheraton will enter through the Castle Hill area of Legoland where you'll immediately see Granny's Apple Fries.
