  • Delmonico Steakhouse at The Palazzo

    Angela and I had the pleasure of dining at Delmonico Steakhouse tonight at The Palazzo here in Las Vegas. We didn’t manage to snag any pictures, but I wanted to give a brief review of the food and our dining experience. We arrived around 5:15 PM to find we were one of only three parties […]

  • Man Made Food: Potato and Egg Skillet

    Angela isn’t around to cook for me right now, so I’ve been trying my best to cook food that tastes good. Luckily, she took the time to walk me through a few things before she left. I’ve been putting my own twist on her recipes, but the majority of credit definitely goes to her. This […]

  • Andre’s Las Vegas

    Last week, Angela and I went to Andre’s Las Vegas for dinner. We purchased a TravelZoo Local deal for a 3-course meal (appetizer, entree, desert) at Andre’s because it seemed like a good deal and would be a good way to get out of the house and have a nice date night. Andre’s is located […]

  • CraftSteak at the MGM Grand Resort

    Angela, her mother Theresa, and I ate at Tom Colicchio’s CraftSteak last night at the MGM Grand in celebration of Angela’s birthday. Angela and I agree that it is definitely the best place we’ve eaten at in Las Vegas. The food was delicious, the service was excellent, and the experience was great. We would definitely […]

  • James Came to Visit!

    A couple weeks ago, James came to visit us and attend an NSCA conference down on the strip. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to spend a lot of time together as he was mostly in town for the conference getting his CEUs to keep his CSCS cert current. We pretty much only had a couple evenings […]

  • Greens & Proteins Healthy Kitchen in Las Vegas

    Angela and I decided to try out a new restaurant tonight and were excited to find a little gem near our apartment. It is called Greens & Proteins and is about 12 minutes away from home. We were drawn to the restaurant by the promise of an ostrich burger. In addition, we’ve been looking for […]

  • February 2013 Meal Plan

    Angela and I have really buckled down our eating this year. First, we wanted to make a concerted effort to eat better nutritionally. Second, we don’t go out to eat anymore, which has been a huge help in terms of budget and knowing what goes into our bodies. Although we eat fairly plain nowadays, neither […]

  • Banana Bars

    I make these bars for Nick and he thinks they are mega delicious, so I figured I’d share the recipe I threw together from multiple banana bread recipes along with some healthy substitutions. I throw the following in a bowl (why do that whole “mix the dry then the wet and combine them” thing and […]

  • An Underwhelming Visit to the Strip

    Nick and I ventured to the strip yesterday with Travelzoo vouchers in hand for a new sports  exhibit at the Luxor called SCORE! Thank goodness for the discounted price. But I’m getting ahead of myself. We parked at Bellagio and checked out the latest flower decorations inspired by Chinese New Year. It was a pretty […]

  • Lombardi’s at Planet Hollywood/Miracle Mile Shops

    After dropping off my Mom and Grams at the airport, Nick and I took advantage of already being downtown to stop at the Miracle Mile Shops to pick up the 2012 Swarovski snowflake ornament (an annual tradition of ours).  While we were walking around the mall, we worked up an appetite and decided to stop […]
