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.

A Peek inside the All-New Watson’s!

I am LOVING this all-new Watson’s. It’s no longer just pools, spas and game room must-haves. It’s now a carefully curated collection of everything for your home — inside and out.

If you haven’t been since Watson’s remodeled their showroom last year and rebranded, here’s what you’ll find now:

  • They now have an expansive selection of indoor furniture, both in-stock and custom options. Want to change the layout? Get a different fabric? No problem. There’s NO fee for doing that.
  • There’s also a huge emphasis on fashionable, stylish, and on-trend.
  • Lots of pieces you won’t see anywhere else! Watson’s has several relationships with manufactures who make exclusive designs for them – like this modern metal pool table! Love it!
  • Home accessories are now available  – so all the great decor and accessories you see on display that you need to put the personal touch and finish your space are also for sale! Lamps, end tables, rugs, even the barware is for sale!

I am loving this “new” Watson’s — really rounds it out — making it everything you need for your home, inside and out.

Watson’s still has your pools, spas and outdoor furniture. Actually, they now have an entire showroom of indoor furniture! It’s BREATHTAKING! But now have more than 40,000 square feet of in stock furniture, and no fees for any customizations you want to make. They have several certified interior designers on staff who can help you build those custom options. Actually, Watson’s said more than half their customers are choosing that route! And it’s all still covered under the low price guarantee — meaning if you find a lower price anywhere else, Watson’s will match it.

I’ve been to a LOT of furniture stores. This is not what I’m used to. It’s different. It’s cooler. It’s on trend. It’s beautiful and you have to see it in person for yourself!
