Foodie Tuesday: Butterbeer!



It’s foodie tuesday! Keeping with our theme, I thought a fantasy treat would be a great idea. HP fans rejoice, you will now have a delicious and simple Butterbeer recipe to go along with yesterday’s DIY costume.

I’m sharing the “adult” version of the drink because being a wizard is tough and often requires liquor.

Ready? Here we go.


Cream Soda, Butter, Vanilla Ice Cream & Butterscotch Schnapps


Add one scoop of vanilla ice cream and one tablespoon of butter to your glass of cream soda (12 ounces). Mix thoroughly.

Now it’s decision time. Hot or cold? If you want a warm and cozy butterbeer, place your glass in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds. If not, cool it off in the fridge or add ice.

Lastly, stir your drink and add 2+ shots of Schnapps.

Easy smeasy.

If you don’t like it, I recommend taking 2 shots of schnapps until you do.




Date Outfit

Katsuya is sooo good! But before I get into that, I have to announce that I am officially adding food to my blogging mix! I’m working toward improving my eating habits (and losing my extra jiggle) but I will also be taking full advantage of cheat days. Everything in moderation, including moderation, right? I mean….can any salad ever be as tasty as lobster risotto?! (The answer is yes. I’ve tasted one such salad….but you know what I mean. Lol)

I hope you enjoy the mix of healthy & indulgent food posts that’ll be coming your way! And if you have a recipe or restaurant you think I should try, let me know :)

Now lets talk Katsuya! It’s Japanese cuisine with a few twists courtesy of Master Sushi Chef Katsuya Uechi. I’ve tasted other restaurants’ versions of a few of the dishes but Katsuya has the best interpretations of them. I’m happy to say I was not the least disappointed. I was actually very surprised by this mini chain. If you’re considering eating at Katsuya, I highly recommend it.

Tasty Hot Dogs!

Onion Rings

Guilty as charged. If you follow me via social media you know that I’ve been working to adjust my eating habits in order to live a healthier life and of course, to lose the extra pounds. But I’m a major foodie and I can’t imagine life without the occasional delectable indulgence. So I aim for an 80/20 ratio of clean eating to not-so-clean yet amazing meals. Lol.

Last weekend I was able to check out Fab Hot Dogs , it was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives on the Food NetworkIt’s a small place but if you start reading the menu, you’ll instantly see what sets them apart. They’re best known for “The Ripper”. It’s a natural casing beef and pork dog flown in from New Jersey that is specally made for deep frying!

Everything was delicious. I had a breakfast ripper dog with tatter tots and I have no regrets. Lol. I also think this place would be a really cool date spot. It’s unique, fun, and not over-priced.

Salad is Healthy

chocolate pancakesI had salad for lunch so I wanted to indulge my sweet tooth visually. Thanks Pinterest. I really wish desserts and all super tasty food made you healthier and slimmer. On the bright side, I might be doing a little real-life indulging later today.

What’s your favorite guilty pleasure?
