Dig out those flip flops and the sunscreen - summer is coming!

As the weather starts to heat up, step up your day drinking with an icy treat made with Amarula Cream, a South African treat made using the fruit of the indigenous marula tree.

A couple weeks ago though, we had the chance to spend some more time there at a Chocolate and Beer tastings held at Dallmann Fine Chocolates.  This is just one of the fun ways to spend time at The Headquarters, which is located right downtown next to Seaport Village on Harbor Drive.

Morning is a super important time and along with a delicious steaming hot cup of coffee it's important to have a breakfast that will get you going and keep you going strong till it's time for lunch.  Sure, donuts and pastries may be the classic breakfast treat, but I have something that is delicious, "relatively" good for you, and easy to prepare in advance so it is ready for a quick reheat in the morning. Of course though - this recipe for baked oatmeal is also delicious hot out of the oven too!

  2. Add it to a box of Jambalaya mix to give it more flavor and kick up the spice a bit when you use RO*TEL HOT!
  3. Add it to pasta sauce to make it even more thick and chunky!
  4. Add it to a hot skillet and then place frozen fish on top of it to steam and give flavor!
  5. Offer it for a taco condiment instead of just normal diced tomatoes!
