Raising Little Artists

I got these vegetable paints as a gift when L.B. was born, but I didn’t have an opportunity to use them for a really long time. When she became a toddler I decided it was time to bust them out! I let her loose in the bathtub, for easy clean up. It still got pretty messy, but she had the time of her life. As a person who loves art, I thought the carefree nature with which she created the splatter all over the white tub was beautiful. Messy art makes amazing abstract patterns. I love the new perspectives having children gives me. Just watching them […]

Remifeb’s Homemade Taco Seasoning

BRING ON THE SPICE!   Who loves spicy!? I do! Anyways, just wanted to share this amazing/spicy taco seasoning I make. It does use a lot of spices, but it will last a while. Just sprinkle this when cooking your meats for tacos! So yummy~! Let me know what else you used this spice for. Would love to try out some new recipes.               ♥ My Suggested Products ♥ I mostly get kirkland brand for my spices, but any kind would probably be alright. I use Pyrex snapware to store spices, but any empty jar […]

L.B.’s The Boxtrolls Review

Last year (2015), L.B. watched The Boxtrolls at least twice a day…for about 3 months!!! The plot is about “A young orphaned boy raised by underground cave-dwelling trash collectors tries to save his friends from an evil exterminator” (imdb). There’s also a lot of talk about cheese in the movie which is why I suspect she enjoyed watching the film. There are a lot of different cheeses that are mentioned and she must have been curious to how all of them taste.  What I should have done is create a cheese platter with some grape juice and had a little cheese […]

Remifeb’s Black Rock Coffee Bar Review (California, USA)

Have you ever tried Black Rock Coffee Bar? They first opened in Beaverton, OR on February 1st, 2008, and quickly spread through the pacific northwest. I recently had the opportunity to visit the only location in California, in Oceanside. Luckily it’s right off the freeway so if you need a coffee kick while traveling through California on a road trip you can drop right in. Also it’s a drive thru so you don’t even have to get out of the car! Awesome opossum! Look at this beautiful coffee container! Looks totally different compared to Starbucks. It definitely shows what there coffee is all […]

Birth of Happiness

  Doesn’t matter if you come from a privileged home or a poor one. The most important thing in life is that we should all do our best to make someone feel that we care. Wouldn’t it be great if we could fill that emptiness and give hope to people? Go make someone smile. Go tell them that you want to see them succeed. Go make them laugh. Our existence would be meaningless if we only thought about ourselves because greed is more costly than generosity. Happiness is free. You have a choice and you can make a change. Get out […]

Remifeb’s Matcha Pudding

Matcha is one of my favorite things in my life. What the hell is Matcha?! Well I will tell you what it is. It is green tea that is specially grown and ground into powder. Pretty much the best thing ever. Think of it as a green tea expresso…if there was such a thing. My family knows how much I love this stuff, so they sent me some all the way from Japan! So I have been experimenting on adding Matcha powder in my cooking and came up with a few recipes to share. Have you ever used Matcha in […]

Hill Street

Hill Street Cafe and Gallery (California, USA)

There’s this quaint little cafe located in Oceanside, California called the Hill Street Cafe and Gallery. I have been here a couple of times because my vegan friend asked me to choose a place to eat and this restaurant has lots of options for my herbivore friends. The restaurant feels like you’re dining in someone’s house….well I guess you basically are since it is a Victorian home and a historical landmark. The artwork in the restaurant showcases local art so it is something to see as well if you love art like me. Another cool thing about this place is that they are a […]

Remifeb’s Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook Review

Above is one of many yummy drinks on Trim Healthy Mama. What is Trim Healthy Mama? The first time I heard about the two sisters Serene and Pearl who created this trim healthy mama plan was on a podcast. They promote their eating lifestyle to lose weight effortlessly. It’s not just for women, but I believe the majority of their audience are moms who cook for their families. So I decided to get their cookbook to check what it was all about.. Anyways, I’m always looking for yummy food to make so I was intrigued. Basically I just love to eat. […]
