Esta Esta, Monroeville, PA
Date March 5, 2017
I rarely turn down Italian food, so when I was asked to go to Esta Esta last week I happily accepted. I had never been to the Italian eatery in Monroeville, PA, and wasn’t even aware of it’s existence.

Bravo Franco, Pittsburgh, PA
Date January 29, 2016
The show started out well, but quickly became a bit overwhelming and repetitive- a sensory overload to say the least. When the lights came on, and the intermission bell chimed, we decided to skip the second act (along with many other folks) and have an early dinner. We chose Bravo Franco, located at 613 Penn Avenue, because of its close proximity to the theater.

Knorr Pasta Sides
Date March 3, 2014
This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Giant Eagle for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
My Father introduced me to the Knorr brand when I was growing up. Both of my folks were avid cooks, but didn’t always have time to prepare dishes from scratch. Knorr products were convenient, easy to use, and flavorful for a myriad of dishes that my family and I enjoyed while growing up.
I recently prepared Salmon Herb Pasta with Knorr’s Pasta Sides- it was simple to prepare, and came out beautifully.

I’m a big fan of chili, especially during the cold winter months. I don’t make traditional chili too often because I find ground meat too fatty, and kidney beans waxy. This Chicken Chili recipe is delicious, nutritious, and satisfying.
