National Pasta Day October 17!

It’s National Pasta Day Thursday Oct 17 and we celebrated a little early (we’re Italian so every day is pasta day TBH 😂) We headed to Bravo to check out their new Mediterranean menu and it was SO good (More details below about it). And now that I’m a mom, I’m a lot choosier about not just eating good food, it has to be good for you (I’m such a sneaky chef sneaking veggies in where ever I can these days!) and I also care about the world we’re leaving our kids. I recently read about Bravo’s new Good Food for The Planet™ Initiative, and it checks all those off the list for me. Plus they have this gooey warm chocolate cake dessert that I have dreams about, so we find ourselves at Bravo often!

Bravo restaurants just rolled out an awesome new Mediterranean-inspired menu at its Cincinnati locations including Rookwood Exchange, Mason and Westchester. 

Some of the new menu items include a new Alfredo Fresco line including Fettucine Alfredo, Primavera Alfredo and Shrimp Alfredo along with Shrimp and Lobster Fettucine. The dishes, made from simple ingredients, utilize fresh handpicked produce and Italian herbs.  

Plus, FoodFirst Global Restaurants, Inc., the newly formed restaurant company and parent company of Bravo Cucina Italiana, has a mission to provide Good Food for The Planet™ and this new menu is a step forward in that movement.

Dinner Parties with Chef Ken!

Just crawling out of the food coma I’ve been in since Saturday night’s dinner party to celebrate my friend’s engagement! 🇬🇷💍😍 Not only was Chef Ken with The At Home Chef a magician in the kitchen as he customized our four course, locally-sourced meal, but it was so fun watching and learning from him as he made everything… aaaand they did the dishes and left the kitchen spotless! Highly recommended if you want to host a dinner party (or a fun date night!) but don’t want to do all the work that actually entails! 😂

Happy Taco Tuesday from Bubba Rub!

Happy Taco Tuesday! We’re all about tacos and believe it or not this recipe from Bubba Rub is AMAZING!

Check out my favorite taco recipe – the whole family loves it!

BubbaRub Tacos (Beef/Pork/Chicken):

1 lb Beef/Chicken/Pork/Turkey/Etc.
BubbaRub Dry Rubs to taste
Crunchy Taco Shells
Oriental Slaw
BubbaRub Sauce
Shredded cheese (white cheese)

Make pulled pork/chicken per the recipe, or ground beef/turkey with BubbaRub Dry Rub. Starting with the crunchy taco shell, layer meat, slaw, cheese and drizzle BubbaRub Sauce of your choice on top. Simple, creative, and absolutely delicious!

I would normally think of a dry rub for a taco recipe but this rub just makes everything taste better – from veggies, seeds, salmon, and chicken to ribs, roasts, and burgers.

There are TONS more recipes on the website!

And now that grilling season is FINALLY here, I thought I’d reshare this video because this is a MUST-have around the house – especially for everything grilled!

Summer Camps at The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati

Registration is now open for the 1-week long themed summer camps at The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati.

No audition is required and it’s for a variety of ages and experience. Sessions are available for 6-7 year olds, 8-10 year olds, and 11-14 year olds each weekday from 9am to 4 pm at the TCT facility on Red Bank Road.

And get this, it’s just $275 per week and $250 for additional kids and that breaks down to only be about $8 an hour. It’s such a great deal! It’s less expensive than daycare and nannying, plus they’re learning valuable skills and lifelong memories.

Before and after care is also available for all 7 weeks of summer camp. You gotta register now though, mommas, because sessions fill up fast. Only 25 participants are accepted in each age group for each week, and all of the sessions completely sold out last year.

You can learn more about these amazing summer programs here at The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati on their website thechildrenstheatre.com.
