another fabulous recipe thanks to pinterest!!!!

well, well, well, looks who's posting for the 3rd time this week!

anyway, as if you didn't already know i am obsessed with pinterest!

well, tonight i made a summer corn cakes recipe with salsa that i actually found on LAUREN CONRAD's pinterest page.

of course, i had to stop at whole foods and pick up a few ingredients:
i'll be honest, i have never made corn cakes before. so the thought of putting corn in a food processor was a little strange to me! lol!
the recipe is super easy to make though, even though i tweaked the recipe a little. for example, i added some cilantro to the mix and instead of buttermilk i used milk and chobani greek yogurt.

then into the pan, with my fish spatula from williams-sonoma. if i had to pick one kitchen item i couldn't live without aside from the obvious wusthof knife set, all-clad pans, kitchen aid stand mixer [a MUST for every bridal registry that i still NEVER use!], my "must have" dualit toaster, etc... the one item i couldn't live without is my fish spatula! def. worth the $30.00!

note to self: i probably should have made the avocado and salsa mix  prior to making the corn cakes, but in the end it really didn't matter.  ha! ha!

finally, a photo of my version of summer corn cakes with salsa. yum!!!!

if you would like the recipe you can find it (and ME) on PINTEREST by clicking on the photo link below:

def. worth trying and the recipe makes a lot of corn cakes! anyone know if you can freeze the recipe? the recipe says you can store it in the fridge for up to 2 days? anyone?!?!!

yum! yum! yum! plus, a serena & lily score!

curious, if anyone else out there is fan of jason's deli?

jason's deli has locations all over the u.s. currently, i am obsessed with their fruit dip! omg, this stuff is amazing! wish i had a recipe so i could make my own! lol!

anyway, i had their califonia club for lunch - guac on the side, of course!  too bad, i waited until i was pretty much done with my meal to snap a photo.

oh well, check it out www.jasonsdeli.com and if you haven't tried their fruit dip you should! it's delish!

almost forgot, anyone score any deals over at the SERENA & LILY SALE event over at ONE KINGS LANE today?

another fabulous trip!!


a few days ago we returned from a wonderful trip out to vegas. we stayed over at the bellagio, which is still my favorite place on the strip!

below are some random photos from our trip.

speaking of CHANEL, i was walking up from the pool and notice a woman wearing a pair of CHANEL flats.

it soon dawned on my that the CHANEL logo was missing from the right shoe. man, that's gotta suck!

curious, would you wear a pair of CHANEL flats
knowing one of the logos was missing?

here's one of my favorite view of the pools:

speaking of vegas, it's hard to go to vegas without a little gambling. i won, i lost, won again...luckily, i came home with $600 more than i left with.....BONUS!

i'm not a big gambler, i stick to the slots. SEX & THE CITY is def. my favorite slot machine! not sure what to do with the money?

$600.00 probably doesn't seem like much to you, but for someone who normally loses it was great to come home a winner! ha! ha! ha!

then again i play for fun! it's such a sad sight when i see seniors using their social security $ on the slots!

oh well, the only famous person we saw was taylor hicks. at first i was like, he looks familiar? i'm not a fan of american idol, so it took me a moment to realize who it was, lol!!!

can't wait to go back! ;)
