A Scholar's Journey: The Divine Tempest Book Tour

A Scholar's Journey: The Divine Tempest A Scholar’s Journey: The Divine Tempest is a no-holds-barred fantasy brawl. It begins when the God of Justice and Retribution opens The Abyss and unleashes a vengeful demon upon the mortal realm of Therra. Now it is up to scholar Penndarius Greyson and his tormented protector, martial artist Soren Luna Mortalitas, to stop a crisis that would send shockwaves through the very fabric of creation. In addition, Penndarius is waging an internal battle with a disembodied presence attempting to possess his mind. The two heroes must avoid death or capture, but there is a catch: They have only one day to solve a riddle older than history before a dark host of unstoppable demons is released into the world. The Divine Tempest includes warring factions, betrayal and redemption, and of course, Herrick Erickson-Brigl's trademark: epic fight scenes. This is the lean, hard-hitting first installment in a series that follows Penndarius’s growth as the av…

Carmex Healing Cream and Lotion Giveaway Ends 4/6

Flip Flop Wines Review

Nothing like a glass of wine to wind down after an exhausting day.  Back in the day a nice bottle of wine was so expensive we only popped the vino on special occasions.  So it's nice to see an bottle of wine that tastes so good and affordable you can serve it at the everyday backyard barbecue, as well as, the fancy schmancy shindig leaving everyone to gasp when you tell it's under 10 bucks!  Yes, flipflop wines is that kinda' wine. 

Let me preface this review by saying before the kids were born I belonged to a wine club and each month I received 3 bottles of wine.  I used it mainly for cooking and entertaining and developed a love of good wine.  So, I was skeptical when I heard of flipflop wines.  I mean, come on, it was like $7.  I so thought it would be bland, cheap, tasteless wine but I was wrong.  The flipflop Wines I sampled were fragrant, refreshing, full of aromas that stimulate your tastebuds, flipflop Wines did not disappoint.

I absolutely loved the flipflop Riesli…

What's Your Hamptonality Moment?

Hampton Hotels are one of my faves when it comes to travel.  Whether it's business or personal, I know I will always find nice accommodations, comfy bed, professional staff and great breakfast.  In fact, the reason the Three Boys and an Old Lady family just had to have a rotating waffle iron stems from a stay in a Dallas Hampton Inn.  Oh, there's an added perk --> I can earn and use my Hilton HHonors rewards when I stay at a Hampton Hotel.  Boo-yah!!!

Hampton Hotelshas launched a new campaign complete with a video that shares their latest Hamptonality Moment. Hampton Hotels' video series, Hamptonality Moments, tells the stories of real-life guests and moments that made their stay especially memorable.

Ronco Hidden Veggie Pasta Review

I should probably preface this post by the Three Boys and an Old Lady family is known for eating a lotta pasta.  Seriously, we have pasta at least twice a week, sometimes three.  My eldest nephew often teases me because it never fails that whenever he drops by our home, we just so happen to have pasta for dinner.  What can I say, I love pasta.  Pasta is versatile, can be served hot or cold, filling, the entire family likes it and it's inexpensive.
Over the years I've tried some healthy pasta varieties.  Some we've liked.  Others, notsomuch.   We've tried wheat, whole wheat, whole grain, high fiber, buckwheat, spelt (yes, spelt pasta), and a few other varieties and there are noticeable taste differences in each.  I told you we eat a lotta pasta in the Three Boys and an Old Lady household.  I admit, I was a bit skeptical when I heard of Ronco Hidden Veggie Pasta but figured I'd give it a try and whipped up some chicken spinach penne alfredo.    
At first glance Ronco …

10 Things About Road Trips...with THE KIDS

I come from a long lineage of Road Warriors.  Seriously, my parents were masters of the family road trip. I don't think we ever flew anywhere as a family when I was a kid.  We drove EVERYWHERE and we liked it.  Well, I think we did.  I'on really remember.  

However, when it comes to planning a vacation, getaway, excursion, I am the Princess of Experience.  I learned from the best.   No have no doubt you will learn, enjoy and have the trip of a lifetime when you travel with moi.  Over the years, I've had some fab trips, some GREAT trips but this year, my Spring Break trip was among my worst ever.  I had to figure out just what went wrong.  I mean, I planned...I mapped...I did all those things I typically do but something went wrong...terribly wrong.   After reviewing my typical traveling tips, I figured it out.  My middle son had another place he wanted to be and it definitely wasn't on the road with his family so he made every attempt to not enjoy the annual family Spri…

Cuarenta y tres means 43 and is reference to the 43 ingredients of Licor 43liquer.  I'm not sure of all 43 ingredients used to make Cuarenta y Tres, but with the subtle hint of vanilla, I'm sure it ranks among the 43.  Velvety smooth with aromatic citrus tones which can be served warm, chilled, frozen or incorporated into some of your favorite desserts like white chocolate mousse and madelines. 
White Chocolate Mousse Ingredients: 1/2 cup Licor 43 2 cups sweet cream 250 grams white chocolate 340 grams berry Directions: Stir.
