Foodie Friday: Halloween Edition!


Happy Friday Foodies!!! The countdown for Halloween is in full affect and it’s only 10 days away! Since Halloween falls on a Monday this year, most people, like myself, will be celebrating the holiday next weekend with a party or a dinner. So for those who are trying to be the Host with the Most, I have Halloween appetizers, main dishes, drinks, and desserts that take hardly anytime to prepare and will be a treat for all your guys and ghouls!

First up, Appetizers! I figured since this particular holiday is filled with candy galore, you should try these healthy alternatives.

Ghost Fruit Kabobs


What a festive, yet healthy way to kick off a Halloween party with these Ghost Fruit Kabobs as appetizers! You can use any fruit of your choice but in this picture, there are strawberries and melons. For the marshmallows, all you need is a black food coloring marker to draw the ghost’s face and the rest is pretty straight forward. Be sure to cut up the fruit in bite size pieces, create a pattern, and follow from one in of the skewer to the next!

Things were hot in Miami last night as the iconic brand Remy Martin celebrated the launch of its “Circle of Centaurs”. The celebration was held at a private tea room in the East hotel in Brickell. The event was star studded and included music industry stars such as Gloria and Emilio Estefan along with their daughter Emily. Rapper Flo Rida made an appearance, as well as, Latin Grammy nominated artist, Manuel Medrano. Latin TV stars were also in attendance such as Gabriel Coronel and Roger Borges.


The “Circle of Centaurs” is a new initiative started by Remy Martin this year. The program is actually an extension of the Remy Martin’s One Life/Live Them campaign which celebrates individuals who are multi-talented. The “Circle of Centaurs” will focus more on giving one individual the opportunity to be mentored by an individual who has shown their ability to explore their many different talents. The purpose of the program is to seek out individuals who wish to explore their many talents that they possess. This mentorship is the first in the series that Remy Martin has planned, and each initiative will feature a different mentor.

Happy Friday Foodies! Summer is almost over and you can’t have a complete summer without visiting your local state fair! Some people go to the fair to ride the rides or to pet the animals or even just people watch. But most people go to the fair for one thing: FOOD! People travel far and wide and rearrange their schedule to get a taste of some good fair food because it’s seasonal but does it have to be? Of course not! Below I have 5 classic fair goodies that you can make at home and have year round.


Kicking it off we have the old school classic, Corn Dogs. Corn dogs are an easy go to especially if you have children with you or you’re a foodie fanatic and need both hands filled with delectables.

It will surely have you feeling like you’re at the fair anytime of the year.

Foodie Friday: Kebabs!

Shish-Kebab hey mikey atl

If you’re anything like me, you’re on the brink of tears just knowing that Summer is about to be over. That means no more backyard parties for a while, no chilling in the pool or laying poolside all day long and definitely no short shorts and tanks which we all love so much. At this point school is right around the corner and you know there’s pretty much one thing left to do – end Summer ’16 with a BANG!


And there’s only one way to end Summer – and that is with the ultimate backyard bash complete with drinks (fountain drinks if you’re underage of course), friends, great music and of course, great food and all great Summer food comes from a grill!

And one of the most loved grilled foods of all time is undoubtedly, a kebab.
