Where to Eat

If you're looking for ideas where to take the family for lunch or dinner, here are some family-friendly places I have tried.

Leatherby’s Cafe Rouge Themed Menu featuring Phantom of the Opera

My husband and I attended media preview night for The Phantom of the Opera which is now performing at Segerstrom Center for the Arts until August 16th. We were in for a night full of beautiful singing. I was delighted the moment they lit up that chandelier. Chris Mann (The Phantom), Katie Travis (Christine), Storm Lineberger (Raoul), and Jacquelynne Fontaine (Carlotta) delivers a powerful performance to a timeless classic. My favorite scene was when The Phantom takes Christine across the foggy lake as they sang their theme song, The Phantom of the Opera. I also loved their performance to All I Ask of You and Wishing You Were Somehow Here … READ MORE

How to Order at Chronic Tacos

Last night, the family and I stopped at CHRONIC TACOS at Bella Terra in Huntington Beach for dinner. The best way I know how to explain Chronic Tacos is… it’s like a Subways but for Tacos.

Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour in BuenaPark

How can we say, No? For Starters, my friend and I ordered this Old Fashioned Onion “Hill” (not Mountain). When it came out we thought they made a mistake, because we asked for the small version and got this NOT so small “Hill”. My Swiss Turkey Focaccia came with roasted turkey breast, avocado, Swiss cheese, and pesto. Did we save room for Dessert?? Oh yes we did for this Oreo Bliss and Farrell’s Classic Sundae. That’s not all. Someone ordered The World Famous Farrell’s Zoo which comes with (4) ice … READ MORE

New Nekter Juice Bar Opens at Bella Terra in Huntington Beach

We checked out the new Nekter Juice Bar in Huntington Beach Bella Terra. Listening to everyone’s enthusiasm in line about the fresh fruit and vegetables, I really wanted to try something healthy too. Did you know they offer a cleanse? You can choose between Classic, Advanced, and Premium as well as a one-day, two-day, three-day or five-day cleanse. Grab’ N Go Selections – These are perfect if you want to stock up for the week or get some for the road. Four of their most popular Grab ‘N Go‘s are their Green Energy (my favorite!), Strawberry Skinny for a Boost, Vanilla Protein, and their Ginger Skinny for Immunity. I also … READ MORE
