Pizzeria Paradiso owner Ruth Gresser celebrated the release of her new pizza-making guide, Kitchen Workshop – Pizza on Feb 1. Chef Gresser has been making pies at Dupont Circle’s Pizzeria Paradisosince 1991. The local chain receives raves reviews celebrating it as one of the best pizza hot spots in town and frequently tops lists of best Washington Restaurants.

In Kitchen Workshop – Pizza, Gresser provides insight and knowledge on the how-tos for home chefs to turn out flavorful pizza from their very own ovens. All of the recipes—from the dough to a savory pumpkin pizza—have been tested in both the restaurant’s commercial oven and a conventional home oven. This care promises that people who don’t have high-heat, wood-burning, stone ovens (the vast majority of us) can make restaurant-style pizza, right at home.

I attended a media book release party, and indulged in a few tasty treats. Attendees were greeted with antipasto of crostini, cured mozzarella, and a sampling of beers at the restaurant’s Georgetown location. We then feasted on pizzas made using recipes from the book. First, we sampled an asparagus vegetable pizza paired with Stone Brewery’s Enjoy by; a curried chickpea pizza, paired with an Allagash Saison Rye; a fig and prosciutto pizza, paired with Laughing Dog Dogfather Imperial Stout; and finally a dessert pizza with blueberries, paired with an Allagash White Ale. By far, the asparagus vegetable pizza and Enjoy By was my favorite pairing. The pizza, with asparagus, pungent onion, and salty feta paired perfectly with the light and citrusy beer. In addition to savoring the pairings, we also got to bake our own pizzas and take them home. In sampling the pizza and beer, it was evident that each pairing was designed to bring out the flavors of both.

After enjoying the pizzas, I made my way over to the paddles laid out and started my pizza-making sojourn. I opted for the asparagus vegetable pizza and topped it with a healthy dose of asparagus, onions, tomatoes and feta cheese--lots of feta cheese. Gresser came by to make sure we were OK and even offered advice on how to “pretty” the pizzas up. She suggested not being too heavy-handed on toppings and layering the toppings evenly to ensure uniform cooking.

Once my pizza went in the oven, I chatted with Gresser about her experience in Washington and what it was like to put together her new book. It started with a love for pizza, and blossomed into a career. Everybody loves pizza, and she wanted to show home cooks how easy it is to make pizzeria-quality pizza at home. After hearing that I decided to put myself to the test. Armed with Gresser’s gentle guidance from both in-person tips, and from the cookbook, I set out to recreate the orange and fennel pizza from the cookbook.

For starters I love fennel–raw, cooked, bulb, and frond. The bulb has a subtly sweet, sharp flavor, while the fronds are herby. I saw the recipe and was immediately fixed on preparing it. I have to admit one thing though; I kind of, sort of cheated a little. I didn’t have time to prepare the Neapolitan pizza dough, as described in the book. I did, however, make it a point to purchase Neapolitan pizza dough from a local pizzeria.

The sweet licorice aroma of the braising fennel permeated my kitchen, as I supremed some oranges. Once the pizza was topped, heeding Gresser’s advice on not overtopping, I anxiously waited for my creation. I followed the baking instructions, but found that I needed to broil and bake it for a little more time than the book recommended. I also didn’t have parsley, so I topped the pizza lightly with a bit of chopped fennel fronds. All in all, it was a delicious combination of toppings, with sweet fennel and orange, and salty feta and olives. I’ll definitely be cracking the spine on this book to whip up a few more tasty pies.

Pizzeria Paradiso’s Gresser is passionate about pizza, and it’s evident in everything from the diligence in developing recipes for the cookbook to helping readers create the scrumptious pies featured in her restaurant and at home. Whether you prefer a chewy Neapolitan, an indulgent deep dish, or a super-thin New York-style, you're bound to find a perfect pizza recipe inside this book.

Fine printing, cover with minor shelf wear, minor pencil writing interior. "Nick-named "The Abbess" by her family, Louisa was bitten by the theater bug at a young age. It was during the course of a production in Indianapolis that she met her first husband, Newton Booth Tarkington, who would twice win the Pulitzer prize for novelists and produce a number of popular novels and plays. They married on 18 June 1902 in Marion, Indiana. Louisa was an accomplished woman in her own right, having graduated from Smith college in 1900. She apparently collaborated with her husband in adapting some of his novels for the stage. The couple had a daughter, Laurel Louisa, in 1906. But Tark, as he was known by friends, was a hopeless alcoholic, and the couple divorced in 1911. By 1915 Louisa was in love again, and married her second husband, Willard Connely, a professor of English at Brown University, in Washington D.C. on 15 May of that year. It was during this marriage that many of the poems found in Louisa's book were composed, and several were published in a variety of periodicals including "Harper's Monthly" and "Cosmopolitan". The Connelys had a daughter, Nancy, in 1922, just a year after her self-publication of The Land Of Beginning Again, a collection of Louisa's poetry. Her poem of the same name was considered one of her finest, and it muses about the enticing possibility of being able to go to a place where one could begin again, the consequences of past mistakes undone and forgotten."

Meanwhile, in Pittsburgh

I stand by the spaghetti sub. Or lie down, more likely.

Read it on the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette site here.

Super Submarine Sandwich with Olive-Pepper Relish

Call it a sub, hero, grinder, wedge (said to be from Yonkers, N.Y.), hoagie (generally from Philadelphia), torpedo, Zeppelin or Zep (from Norristown), spuckie (East Boston, referring to the bread, spuccadella), bomber (from around Buffalo, N.Y.) or Garibaldi (southern Wisconsin), or by any name, you’ve got an Italian sandwich.

Built on a long, narrow loaf of bread, the sandwich is filled with a mix of cheeses and Italian meats, and often lettuce, tomato, some type of pickled pepper or relish, a drizzle of oil and vinegar, salt and pepper. According to “The Oxford Encyclopedia of Food and Drink in America” the sub and its regional variations evolved from “an Italian fieldworker lunch” of hard bread, sausage and cheese. Folding it all up into a long piece of bread made it portable and easier to eat.

Sometime subs, filled with cold cuts, are warmed up and sometimes subs are even served hot, loaded with meatballs and sauce, or chicken or eggplant Parmesan.

Lisa Cherkasky, a Washington, D.C.-based cookbook author, food stylist and great cook who blogs about sandwiches in “The Lunch Encounter,” said she learned of a curious concoction dubbed the Spa Sub, filled with spaghetti and meatballs, on a trip to West Virginia but didn’t sample it.

For creating a great sub, she said, bread is key. Soft crust or hard crust is regional and personal, but the bread has to be of good quality.

Sprinkle the bread liberally with good olive oil and vinegar after cutting it open. “Then the bread has that vinegar thing going for it, and that helps a lot, even if it’s not stellar bread,” Ms. Cherkasky said. She’s no fan of Italian dressing “unless it’s homemade. Maybe an Italian garlic mayo,” she offered.

“There’s a rhythm to building the sub. It shouldn’t be hard to construct or fussy,” she added. The trick is to hinge open the bread, leaving it closed at one long side. Lay the meat and cheese across the middle and place chopped lettuce in the center, along with tomatoes if you want, “but not lousy tomatoes.” Spice it up with red pepper flakes or a bitey red pepper relish. “Then fold it up. That way everything stays in the bread and you get something in every bite, too,” she said.

Ms. Cherkasky said a sub requires a lot of filling. “I like a mix of meat and cheese, salami, cappicola — some people add ham — and provolone or fresh mozzarella. That’s delicious,” she said.

Condiments make the sub sandwich sing. “There’s the mayo camp and the mustard camp,” she said. “I’m in both, even though mustard isn’t customary on a sub.”

Subs have regional variations and quirks that can be, well, unusual. Primanti Bros. is featuring two new Lenten subs, Heaven Sent and Hell Bent. Ms. Cherkasky mentioned a sub called the Broccoli Classic. Made at No. 7 Subs in the Ace Hotel in New York City and Brooklyn, it’s featured in chef Tyler Cord’s cookbook, “A Super Upsetting Cookbook About Sandwiches.” He writes that he’s been devouring broccoli and mashed potato sandwiches since he was a kid. His Classic combines roasted broccoli, mayo, pine nuts, fried shallots, ricotta salata and a spicy lychee relish.

And then there’s that spaghetti sub. “You have leftover spaghetti, you have bread,” Ms. Cherkasky said. “Put some cheese on the bread, put in the spaghetti, wrap the whole thing in foil, push it together and heat it up in the oven so the bread’s toasty. It would be good. My kid would eat that in a second. Yum.”

Super Submarine Sandwich With Olive-Pepper Relish

This sandwich improves as it chills out in the fridge. The olive-pepper relish soaks into the bread and all the flavors blend together. Switch up the meats if you like but make sure they are thinly sliced, and not shaved.

Olive-pepper relish

1 cup pitted, drained Kalamata olives

3/4 cup sliced, drained, hot pickled banana peppers

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

6 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto

6 ounces thinly sliced hot or mild sopressata

6 ounces thinly sliced capicola, ham or mortadella

4 ounces thinly sliced Genoa salami

8 ounces sliced mild provolone cheese

6 small tomatoes, thinly sliced

For the relish: Add all ingredients in food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped but not pureed. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.

For the sub: Slice the bread in half horizontally. Pull out the extra soft bread inside the top half of loaf save for breadcrumbs.

On the bottom half of bread, spread half the olive relish. Layer with meats, provolone, tomatoes and red onions season with salt and pepper and spoon the remaining olive relish on top. Place other piece of bread over the sandwich and press down lightly. Wrap the sandwich in plastic wrap. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

To serve, slice the sandwich into 2-to-3-inch pieces crosswise. Any leftovers can be wrapped in plastic and refrigerated.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.

Broccoli Classic

It’s featured in Tyler Cord’s “A Super Upsetting Cookbook About Sandwiches.” He writes: “This one could be hot or cold — it just depends on your confidence level and attitude. If you want it to be hot, I suggest having everything ready so that when you finish cooking the broccoli, you’re ready to make a sandwich.

4 sub rolls, split lengthwise

2 heads roasted broccoli (trim the broccoli, peel tender stems, toss with oil and salt and roast at 400 degrees until caramelized and tender)

1 cup lychee muchim (recipe follows), mostly drained of its juice

1 cup shredded ricotta salata cheese

1/4 cup fried shallots (recipe follows)

Spread mayo on the rolls and top with the roasted broccoli and lychee muchim. Press it all down a little with your hand to make a nice flat base for the remaining ingredients. Sprinkle cheese, pine nuts and shallots, and close the sandwich.

Makes 4 servings.

Lychee Muchim

This makes 1 cup of marinade, good for brining about 2 cups of anything. Muchim in Korean means mixed or seasoned but is generally employed to describe a Korean cucumber salad called “oi muchim.” Mr. Cord writes.

1 1-inch piece of ginger, peeled and minced

1 medium shallot, finely chopped

2 teaspoons red chili flakes (or less, to taste)

2 scallions, thinly sliced

1/2 tablespoon kosher salt

1 (20-ounce) can lychees in syrup, drained and halved

Stir together garlic, ginger, shallot, sesame oil, sugar, chili flakes, vinegar, scallions and salt until thoroughly mixed. Add the lychees and soak for at least 1 hour. Keeps, refrigerated, for up to a couple of weeks.

Fried Shallots

4 large shallots, thinly sliced

Heat 1 inch of oil in a heavy medium saucepan until a shallot ring sizzles when dropped in.

Toss shallots in cornstarch, separating the rings. Add to the oil in batches and fry until crisp and blonde. Drain on paper towels.

Heat same oil to about 325 degrees. Fry shallots a second time, until puffed, caramelized and just light brown. Drain again on new paper towels and season with salt.

The Black Squirrel: Best beer bar is the best reason to head to Adams Morgan

Jul 14, 2010

I don't care for Adams Morgan. I haven't since I was in my 20s, and even then I wasn't crazy about the neighborhood.

The clubs, chaos and shitty bars just aren't my scene any more, not that they ever were. I do love Madam's Organ, but even that ramshackle joint isn't enough to deal with the mess anymore. And as the good Ethiopian restaurants disappeared from the 18th Street corridor, there was nothing to draw me to the neighborhood.

A couple years ago, three friends who met in a bar opened a bar. A good bar. A very good bar -- The Black Squirrel, the hardest working beer bar in Washington, D.C. And they did it in the heart of Adams Morgan.

If there was ever any doubt that the craft beer revolution has changed D.C.'s bar scene, you need only consider The Black Squirrel. Before Gene Sohn, Tom Knott and Amy Bowman took over the space, it was another Irish pub, one of too many in the area. Like so many businesses up and down 18th Street, the Irish place failed. The fickle tastes of the twenty-something bar hoppers that crowd the sidewalks every weekend decided that pints of Guinness weren't their thing and so another Adams Morgan business needed a buyer.

Since the trio moved in and replaced the imported macros with American micros, they've established a following of neighborhood regulars and loyal beer enthusiasts willing to trek into Adams Morgan to experience what's on tap. Two years after opening, The Black Squirrel is on its second expansion. Last year, they opened an upstairs bar and lounge. Later this year, they'll outfit their freshly graffitied basement with a bar (with 30 to 40 draft lines!) and bring in live music. Soon enough, they'll open a second location and start brewing their own beer.

And to think they've done all this without Jägerbombs, drink specials or, frankly, much experience.

Gene Sohn spent his career in fine dining. After a three-year stint cooking at Marcel's in the West End, Sohn was ready for something different, maybe a place of his own. So he started talking to Amy and Tom, a long-time couple who were fellow regulars at the old Austin Grill in Glover Park. Amy is a health care writer, Tom a sports columnist, and neither has ever worked in the restaurant or bar business, but they were interested.  

Man, were they. In the past two years, Gene, Amy and Tom (far left, background and right, respectively) have operated one of the most interesting craft beer bars in the area. Their draft lineup isn't the largest in D.C., but beer director Melissa Yuckel (center) makes the most of what they got. Two taps are dedicated to Black Squirrel white and Black Squirrel black beers (usually a Belgian witbier and an amber), but the other 15 feature a regular rotation of American craft and imports, including Great Lakes' Eliot Ness lager, Great Divide's Titan IPA and North Coast's Brother Thelonious abbey ale. In the coolers, The Black Squirrel offers 80 to 100 bottles, the latest of which are advertised on the chalkboard next to Tom's favorite perch at the end of the bar. A couple months ago, they got on the growing firkin bandwagon and started tapping a cask of fresh local beer every Friday.

This alone would make The Black Squirrel a good beer bar (and the best damn bar in its neighborhood). But they're not done (I told ya, they're workin'.).

Because all of that is just not enough, Amy or the bar staff have made multi-state beer runs to pick up beer otherwise unavailable in the D.C. area (Greg Jasgur may be driving Three Floyds back from Chicago, but Amy's going up and down the damn East Coast). As a result, The Black Squirrel has held North Carolina Beer week, New Belgium beer week, Philly beer week and has more theme weeks on the way. Each time one of these new beers rolls into the bar, Gene rolls out new specials from the kitchen. North Carolina beer week featured Big Boss from Raleigh and pulled pork sandwiches from Gene. Philly beer week included beers from Yards and Sly Fox, and foie gras cheesesteaks with black truffle mousse (yeah it did). Now, they've cracked open cases of SweetWater beer from Atlanta and served them with an appropriately Southern menu of fried chicken, greens and grits.

"What we've learned from our type of customers is they want to be surprised," Tom said. And so the road trips and taps rotations will continue.

When Amy, Tom and Gene started talking about opening a place three years ago, the District's craft beer scene was just getting under way. There was Bierria Paradiso in Georgetown, the Brickskeller in Dupont Circle and its sister restaurant RFD in Chinatown, but ChurchKey was still two years from opening and Pizzeria Paradiso's cramped Dupont location didn't have a bar. Granville Moore's and Brasserie Beck had just opened, expanding the Belgian beer scene from Belga Café on Barrack's Row to the Atlas District and downtown.

Today, the beer bar scene is in full swing, yet The Black Squirrel remains a standout.

"We do have more of a domestic (beer) focus," said Amy, who described The Black Squirrel as a "hop head" bar. "It's sort of nice that they have their niche and we have our niche."

That niche includes location. Think about where all the beer bars popped up in the District: Dupont Circle, Georgetown, Logan Circle, downtown, even H Street, which is still pretty rough. For a neighborhood that's known for its Miller Lite bars and noisy clubs, its only craft beer bar stands out.

When they were considering locations for The Black Squirrel, Amy said they recognized that Adams Morgan was a club district that didn't have anything like what they were considering. However, it was more affordable than other locations around the city. Besides, for all late-night crowds and turnover in businesses on 18th, they knew a lot of people lived in the neighborhood who didn't have a spot to grab a decent meal and enjoy a beer. If they could attract the locals (they have), their business might just work (it has).

Another factor in their success is their staff. Tom said they attract well-educated, bright employees who understand the concept and are good with the customers. The problem with bartenders and wait staff with graduate degrees, however, is it's hard to keep them around.  

Now, I've never asked Melissa or their former bar manager Hollie Stephenson (who's heading up their brewing project) for their CV, but The Black Squirrel's staff is friendly enough, which is probably more important than their academic backgrounds (but who am I to argue?). After all, you can clearly run a successful beer bar and restaurant in a challenging neighborhood with absolutely no experience whatsoever.

When he was looking for business partners, Gene said he was more interested in finding someone who would be a good fit rather than someone with a restaurant industry background. As it turned out, it may be Amy and Tom's lack of restaurant experience that has been their greatest asset.

Gene runs the kitchen, while Amy and Tom handle the front of the house. Amy also takes care of marketing, paperwork, beer menu and stock levels and deals with the city. Tom oversees the staff, financing and works on new endeavors, like the second location and brewing project. It's a system that's working, but that's not to say there isn't room for improvement.

I understand the decision to open shop in Adams Morgan, but I don't have to like it. But because I like The Black Squirrel - and I do - I'm compelled to wade back into the neighborhood. To mitigate my misery, I tend to hit the bar earlier rather than later, which helps, but even in the late afternoon, Adams Morgan isn't great, it's just less shitty.

If Gene, Amy and Tom had opened The Black Squirrel in another neighborhood, I might've had my own stool next to Tom's by now.

During the interview, Amy said one of the keys to their success is the food, which Gene calls typical bar food, but done with fine dining quality. That's probably true (foie gras cheesesteaks, people). I've rarely been in The Black Squirrel without seeing families and couples having dinner. But as I've mentioned before, a good restaurant doesn't make a good bar.

It's kind of like kids in a casino. I like my bars to be full of drinkers, so the family sitting at the next table enjoying their meal always takes me a little out of the moment. A native of Houston, Amy said you can't go into a bar in Texas without finding good food. Well, I'd like to keep my bars and restaurants distinct, but that's just me.

As for the beer, Melissa does an excellent job making the most of the space she has. Of all the beer bars in the D.C. area, The Black Squirrel consistently has the strongest and most consistent selection of American craft beers. However, their selection of local beers is spotty. While you may find a couple bottles of Flying Dog and occasionally a Heavy Seas on draft, I'd like to see a wider selection of local beers (Hook & Ladder, Evolution, even Baltimore's The Brewer's Art), particularly from a bar that prides itself on its domestic lineup. After all, what's more American than supporting your community?

What they do have on hand does rotate a good bit, which keeps the beer and selection fresh. But the way they advertise the new beers is confusing. The chalkboard by the bar (and Tom) lists the new bottles. I know this because the first time I ordered off of it expecting a draft beer to show up, I was given a bottle and a glass. In my experience, my chalkboard lists are for drafts and printed lists are for bottles. However, the printed draft list is (occasionally) relegated to the menu and may or may not be current. Honestly, the best way to find out what's on draft is to ask, which is fine at the bar, but sucks when you're at a table.

The communication problems also extend to the Website. As far as I can tell, the only useful information on the Website is the phone number and address (maybe the food menu, too). The draft and bottle beer lists are out of date, and they never advertise all their special beer weeks. So, if you want to find out about an upcoming event, you need to connect with The Black Squirrel on Facebook. If you want to find out what's on draft, you better head down there. Pizzeria Paradiso, ChurchKey and RFD do a decent job of updating their beer selections online, and there's no reason The Black Squirrel couldn't do the same. When I'm trying to decide where to spend my money on a few craft beers, I like to know what my options are. Unfortunately, The Black Squirrel's Website doesn't help.

That said, roll the dice and see what Amy and Melissa have brought in. The Black Squirrel isn't the biggest place, and it doesn't have the most taps or the largest selection but Lord knows they're all working hard and burning fuel to make sure that that 18th Street joint is one of the best beer bars we got.

Score: 16 of 20 (beer: 7 of 8, atmosphere: 3 of 5, bartenders: 4 of 5, other elements 2 of 2)

The Best Beer Bars so far: Birreria Paradiso (17 of 20), The Galaxy Hut (16 of 20), Franklin's (14 of 20), and Rustico (16 of 20), Lost Dog Café (12 of 20). And don't miss our special feature on D.C.'s best German bars.

Antoinette Bruno: How did you develop an interest in wine?
Carlton McCoy: When I was in school we took a wine course at The CIA. I did extremely well there, got an A-plus and about a year later the wine instructor asked me if I'd like to go to Italy to study wine. So I spent about a month in Italy traveling around Piedmont, Emilia Romagna, and Tuscany. Then when I was at Per Se the sommeliers were great at sharing their knowledge.

AB: Where have you worked previously?
CM: I was at the Four Seasons in DC cooking under Doug Anderson he's still there. I was 16 with my first restaurant job. I worked at Aquavit for a little while, then I opened Craft Steak in the Meatpacking District, then Per Se, then CityZen, then Sou'Wester.

AB: What are your favorite food and wine pairings?
CM: I'd probably have to say the frog leg and spring garlic soup I had at Jean Georges with a Gruner Veltliner. That pairing was very simple and it made sense. Eric [Ziebold]'s a really good chef and his food is also very simple. He makes it easy for us a lot of the time. He loves Burgundy, so half the time he cooks for Burgundy and cooks for wine pairings.

AB: If you could go anywhere for culinary travel where would it be and why?
CM: I’d go to Burgundy and I'd stay for two weeks in same town.

AB: If you could have any chef cook for you who would it be and why?
CM: Xavier Le Roux. I was a fellow at Escoffier Room for a year. He’s everything that I love about the industry. When I met him he was 65 years old and couldn't imagine sitting there at a desk working this is what he wanted to do. His food is very clean, not fussy it’s all about technique and nothing to do with trying to create something new. He knows the classics like the back of his hand. I never saw him use a recipe. He's from Normandy [so uses] tons of butter and cream…an amazing cook.

AB: Describe your fondest wine memory.
CM: I remember when I was at the bar at CityZen, there was a bottle of Quarts de Chaume, Baumard. We're sitting there after one of our tastings, it's two or three am, we’d done some blind tastings, and this bottle had been open for two days. We were surprised it got better after two days! We sat there for five minutes just smelling the wine, we were so mesmerized. That was probably where I first started to realize that wine is a living, breathing thing. No phase is better—it’s like people. Life isn't very different.

AB: How did you build the wine list at Sou’Wester?
CM: What I try to do is focus on class varietals and regions I’m not convinced that most people pay enough attention to wine to easily recognize the characteristics of something they drink all the time. So I believe it benefits the guest more to offer these wines in an environment where they can enjoy them with great food and create a relationship with the wine. People don’t always come to dinner to be educated…sometimes they just want dinner. So it’s extremely important for us to have a higher level of emotional intelligence and judge whether or not the guest is looking for a new experience. If not, we like to offer diversity with both producer and vintage. If the guest is looking for a new wine experience, we do offer a section in the list entitled “Other Super Interesting Whites/Reds”. Our bottle price range from $30-$300, but 80% of the list is under $100 that can be a night out or a celebration.

AB: What’s your favorite wine?
CM: That’s like asking a music professor what his favorite genre of music is. It depends very much on my mood. Sometimes, I don’t drink wine at all. If you handed me a glass of DRC after a long night and I crave a cold beer, then I probably wouldn’t be very interested. I would still drink it though. It does not always depend on what I am eating, either. Sometimes what I am eating has nothing to do with the beverage I crave. Pairings don’t always have to be thought-provoking. Sometimes it’s just food and wine and that OK! It’s much more important for you to drink what you want. You will usually enjoy it more.

AB: What’s your favorite wine resource book?
CM: Sotheby's is a good go-to for all regions.

AB: Where do you see yourself in five years?
CM: I don't know. If you had asked me that a couple of years ago I wouldn't have said CityZen. When we opened here I didn't know much about classic cocktails, but I got more press about the cocktail menu than the wine list and it was only meant to be an accessory. I became interested, as I do have a culinary background, in infusions and syrups and foams. So I said, ‘I'll try it.’ I just put on this Bitter Italian I love [that is like a] Negroni with gin, Campari, lemon juice, triple sec, rosemary foam, bright acid, bitter. When I thought about it, I thought I'd do a different texture—this came easy to me. Wine is more knowledge and study. I think the experience I get here is great—I can competently run any beverage program. I haven’t mastered beer yet—a Miller High Life, ice-cold, is one of the best things. We serve it on the beer list here, in a silver [Champagne] bucket as the “Champ of Beers.”

A Very New York-y Street

A few hundred feet along the southeastern corner of 39th Street and Eighth Avenue may be among the most New York-y stretches of sidewalk left in Manhattan. I'm talking old New York, of course, the one filled with scrappy, independent, local businesses, the one free of chains, the one populated with working folk who provided humble but necessary services, the one with a little grit in the seams.

The street features a barber shop, a shoe repair shop and a liquor store, all of considerable age. (Try to ignore the fried chicken joint.) I've written about the liquor store—officially, Cambridge Wine & Liquors—before. It's one of the oldest spirit sellers in the city. Not only does it date from the fall of Prohibition, but the space was occupied by a liquor store before Prohibition as well. The beautiful neon sign dates from the ཤs at least.

This kindlebook that is How To Have A Good Day: Harness The Power of Behavioral Science To Transform Your Working Life by Caroline Webb appealed to me even with my intuitive awareness that I am blessed/lucky in both my personal and working life. This is because I’m logically aware that there is always abundant/plenty of room for me to learn more information/grow my knowledge when it comes to continue to make the best andor boost my knowledge of professionally evolving in my work/career/professional/employment life. On an additional beneficial note I also spotted some ideas that I can utilize in other areas of my life. Some of the ideas that are shared in this uplifting kindlebook: why it is at times important to take in that certain situations are more about the other person and/or other people even when it seems otherwise, I’m definitely going to need to give myself more time to process the devil’s advocate section in this kindlebook even though I’m intuitively aware that I’m far from an angel that I wish that I was, positive framing, imagining the ideal outcome of the task andor project, draw a subject tree, and more. I’m also in the process of learning that it is important for me to speak andor write what I am thinking with courageous/braver intent provided that my communications of this fashion are done with civil intent even if some people I admire in my personal andor professional life far from agree on some of my viewpoints. Coming across this kindlebook is timely for me because it gives me ideas on ways to reframe my communications/writings regardless if my views are popular in a wiser and/or more thoughtful manner.

I am blessed with an amazing husband who loves me for who I am and I have seen a diverse range of women in both my personal and professional life who are comfortable with their size and themselves. I admit that the drive to work on my bodyshape comes from within me and extends beyond vanity reasons. I purchased the kindlebook version that came to be the 2017 version, my creative intuition and logic are influencing me to share this fact. However, the following resharing of the People Half Their Size Review is from May 4 2019 for reinforcement of some of my personal goals.

I am fortunate to have unexpectedly come across this Special Edition magazine via People titled Half Their Size (2019 Edition that lists display until 05/21/2019). I am fortunate to be surrounded by a variety of people of diverse bodysizes in both my personal and professional life who make the best of their circumstances in life. Additionally, I am blessed in both my personal and professional life and I am fortunate to be blessed with an amazing husband who loves me regardless of my bodytype. Still, even with I fortunately becoming at least over 30 pounds thinner since 2016, the drive for me to improve upon my fitness and body weight goals come from within from myself for multiple reasons beyond vanity though I prefer to be discreet about for now. However, I feel it is positive synchronicity when I unexpectedly came across this magazine that has some of the following features: how a school clerk successfully went from 302 pounds to 147 pounds and trained for a half marathon, how a nanny went from 285 pounds to 145 pounds, how a retired real estate agent went from 249 pounds to 116 pounds, a feature profile of someone I remember seeing from a previous magazine issue who became thinner after consistently walking at least six miles a day from walking 3 miles to and from work, a recipe for salmon with architokes and sun dried tomatoes, and more. One of the features that I enjoyed the most was that the profiles of a multiple number of the success stories featured displayed what they did for a living. This is important and helpful to me because even before coming across this magazine edition through synchronicity, I was intuitively aware that it is important to avoid comparing your own bodyweight improvement journey to someone else’s

I admit that the following amazon review of Lose Yourself by Eminem is from June 2, 2018. I confess that my angelic husband is also one of the reasons why I am always going to have positive memories of this motivational song because 8 Mile is one of the films that we saw together around the early 2003 timeframe when we were becoming even closer in our relationship.

A Hip-Hop Song of Ambition

Lose Yourself by Eminem is an enjoyable song that my husband opened my mind to listening to. This song appears to be about having a self confident perspective in life regardless of what is happening on the surface. I first heard this catchy tune by January 2003 when my husband and I saw the 8 Mile movie together at a movie theater in Yokosuka Japan(obviously I am always going to have positive memories of both the movie and that timeframe because we started dating each other around that timeframe).

I admit that the following amazon review of Cut The Cord by Shinedown is from July 2, 2015 . I still find it a motivational song to listen to.

Cut the Cord by Shinedown is a compelling rock song that I unintentionally found out about through an e-mail list that I’m subscribed to. There’s something moving about the energy of this song that makes me both hopeful and re-energized about the ways I choose to see life. According to an online source called the “Metal Insider’ Cut The Cord by Shinedown implies a powerful message of taking back more ownership of your life (the writer’s meaning helped me understand why I felt better after initially hearing this song via a link listed on the Billboard website). Anyhow, Cut The Cord by Shinedown is a perfect song for eclectic music lovers who enjoy songs of hope and/or those who like rock music.

I confess that the following review of Somewhere I Belong by Linkin Park is from June 9, 2018

One Of A Kind Soul Baring Song

I confess that I was actually stationed in North Island California when I first heard this emotionally soothing song that is Somewhere I Belong by Linkin Park by the 2004 timeframe. A coworker kindly made a copy of the Linkin Park cd Meteora music collection from a computer and Somewhere I Belong happens to be one of my favorite songs from the Meteora collection even to this day. I rationally and intuitively understand that Somewhere I Belong is one of those songs that has a different meaning depending on who hears it andor who created it. However, I take Somewhere I Belong to be a constructive tune about simply wanting to feel andor be where spiritually, personally, andor psychologically belonging can happily occur (simply guessing from the lyrics I want to heal could imply various levels of healing-emotionally psychological spiritual etc.).

What I’ve Done by Linkin Park is another spiritually meaningful song that I first heard around 2007 sometime after my husband purchased the Minutes to Midnight music collection for me. Both the lyrics and music are very intense.

I admit that I actually first heard this song Hitchin A Ride by Linkin Park by the time I was between 14 to 17 years old. I truthfully still have yet to make out the full meaning of this catchy rock song. I intend to research it within 70 to 80 hours andor less from now. Still I enjoy the distinctive music and lyrics to this song.

This song 03 Bonnie & Clyde is a dynamic and lively music collaboration between Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles. This hip-hop love song appears to be about enduring love. I am always going to have positive memories of this song because I first heard this novel song around the July/August 2003 timeframe via the Now That’s What I Call Music 12 Collection in Yokosuka Japan (from a building that had both a Navy Exchange Store and a Commissary/Grocery store). One of my earliest happy memories of 03 Bonnie & Clyde involved me listening to this song around the July and/or August 2003 timeframe while also spending some of my free time with my then boyfriend who eventually became my current husband (the August 2003 timeframe was also around the time that my angelic husband surprised me with his marriage proposal).

I admit that I originally reviewed the meaningful song that is No More Sorrow by Linkin Park on February 23, 2016.

No More Sorrow by Linkin Park Is a music tune that I take to symbolize the metaphorical meaning of wanting to avoid sadness from now on and to instead emerge stronger regardless of any challenges that may surface. I enjoy the strong hard rock guitar sounds of this song (which I first heard around 2007 after my husband purchased the Linkin Park cd for me which was Minutes to Midnight).

This kindlebook that is Fodor’s Washington D.C. with Mount Vernon Alexandria Annapolis caught my attention because I intend to visit and/or explore some parts of the Washington D.C. area with my husband this summer and beyond. I followed my creative intuition to obtain this kindlebook which contains among the following details: information on the Wharf which opened in late 2017 (listed to be in chapter 12), Smithsonian Museums (chapters 3, 4, 11), Kennedy Center (chapter 6), Historic Hotels (chapters 4, 6), info on Hillwood Estate, info on Capitol Hill and Northeast including the Library of Congress, a prolific list of Washington D.C. restaurants organized in multiple categories to include Capital Classics Breakfast Family Favorites Great Hotel restaurants Great Value Pre Theater etc, comedy clubs, dance clubs, romantic, best tours in the Washington D.C. area, and more.

I admit that I was actually inspired to eventually purchase the kindlebook version of Where The Light Enters: Building A Family Discovering Myself by Jill Biden after spotting a paperback version of this book at a university bookstore less than a mile away from my current job less than a month ago. Some of the personal details colored in this book that add to a multi-dimensional tone: her lifestyle on why she was passionately moved to balance her full-time professor career with her role of First Lady in the White House, some of the circumstances surrounding before and after when Jill Biden and Joe Biden first met, the significance of some of the situations surround their life in 1987, the first time Jill Biden met Michelle Obama, and more. My interest in politics indirectly affected my interest in this book, though I do try to balance speaking my mind politically with focusing my intent to be both wise and considerate of the political viewpoints of some of my family members who accept me for who I am even if I believe different from they do. I happen to be an American born female who was adopted by two American born adoptive parents when they were alive and were from different backgrounds. My late adoptive father was a man of Mexican and Aztec Indian descent who admitted to me when he was still alive in 2016 why he was a Trump supporter though he was open-minded enough to hear my side of why I was a Clinton supporter. My late adoptive mother was an American born woman of non-Hispanic Caucasian descent and was part French and it is the family members from my late adoptive mother’s side who I have had more contact with either in facebook, person, andor cellphone. I strive to be considerate and wise in expressing my political views that may differ from some of the family members who accept me because I know that it is important to keep an open mind to political viewpoints different from my own (whether friend family coworker acquaintance, etc). However, with intent to be braver I must admit this, I still intend to vote in 2020 and am probably going to vote for whoever wins the 2020 Democratic nomination by June/July 2020 timeframe andor sooner. This kindlebook focuses more on the family side through Jill Biden’s perspective though her writing gives an informative focus on a man (Joe Biden) who could eventually be an indirect andor direct pivotal part of the 2020 Democratic Presidential Race.

Less than 4 hours ago, I decided to order a Kale Caesar Salad with avocado and apple toppings plus their house beverage option from Sweetgreen in College Park Maryland. The employee processing my order was polite and both the salad (the salad I had included the ingredients of shredded kale, chopped romaine parmesan crisp shaved parmesan roasted chicken tomatoes fresh lime squeeze Caesar dressing) and the drinks I had tasted appetizing. I normally prefer some drinks with sugar when I order food from other places. However much to my pleasant surprise the strawberry lemonade drinks and the Hibiscus Berry Clover tea with a touch of Jasmine Green Iced Tea tasted great even though the drinks had no added sugar or honey. Additionally, I had plenty of salad remaining for me to snack on for breakfast later on today. The price I paid for the salad and drinks was well worth it and I would definitely come to eat here again.

My husband and I recently decided to try some food from the Bar Louie restaurant in Wheaton Maryland (near the Westfield Wheaton mall). The positives: we had a courteous waiter and the appetizers we tried were delicious: some loaded tots (with the ingredients of bacon queso scallions fresh jalapenos) and 6 piece pork wins (3 of them were Hawaiian barbecue flavored and the other 3 were honey caribbean flavored with a tasty ranch sauce). The caveats the main courses that my husband and I had tasted ok though we would most likely choose different courses for sure if we were to eat here again: my husband had the California Chicken club with fries and a coke while I had the Luigi sandwich with Giardiniera veggie relish with fries and a Sprite drink. I fortunately was in a position to pay for the food, however I keep an open mind both to professional andor paid reviewers/writers/critics who already have their meals financially compensated for in addition to also keeping an open mind to other amateur writers reviewers.

I admit that my interest in writing helped gravitate me towards this fascinating kindlebook that is The Writer’s America by Marshall B. Davidson. Some of the following details in this kindlebook that have also helped introduce me to various writings to look at for both present and future: how writing played a role in the connection between stories around Pocahontas and Jamestown Virginia, background information on a portion of the details that influenced The Innocents Abroad by Mark Twain, background information that inspired a story called The Man In The Gray Flannel Suit by Sloan Wilson, controversial reports written by Dr. Alfred Kinsey, and more.

Happiness/Joy Boosting Ideas

This kindlebook Happier Human: 53 Science Backed Habits To Increase Your Happiness by S.J. Scott and Amit A. appealed to me because I keep and open mind to always believing that there is always more room for improvement/for me improving even with my intuitive and logical awareness of how blessed/lucky/charmed that I am in both my personal and professional life. Some of the details included in this kindlebook: having a sense of living with purpose as a happiness booster, ways to go out and socialize more often, getting regular exercise and more. Some of the details in this kindlebook feature details on information that a multiple number of people may already know through other happiness books. However, I am still glad to have obtained the book for certain pivotal reminders.

A Fascinating Culinary Journey

I admit that I took a leap of faith when I pre-ordered this kindlebook that is Notes From A Young Black Chef A Memoir by Kwame Onwuachi with Joshua David Stein on August 13, 2018. Kwame Onwuachi goes into extensive detail to describe how his family life indirectly and directly shaped his interest in being a chef, his experiences of opening up a restaurant in the metropolitan Washington D.C. area, the author’s candid retelling of the dynamics between each of his parents, how his mother’s catering business shaped him, some details on his social life in both his earlier years and later years, and more. I admit that one of the reasons why this kindlebook appealed to me was from the indirect/subconscious influence of my current job even with me being aware when I pre-ordered the kindlebook that it appeared to be more geared towards a chef andor cook. Even obtaining and working in certain cook positions is highly competitive where I currently work at/where I’m currently employed at and I am glad to have obtained this kindlebook to at least increase my awareness of what some cooks and chefs to in certain settings do.

Distinctive Fitness Journey Kindlebook

I admit that I have multiple reasons why I purchased this kindlebook that is The Day My Shorts Fit My Dad by Suzanne Berkey. I interact with people in both my personal and professional life who are of different bodyshapes and it helps in a healing/happy way that my husband loves me the way I am. However, at the stage of my life I am in now, I am keeping an open mind to sources similar to this kindlebook for knowledge enhancing reasons and some of the features included in this kindlebook include: why the author had a desire to take up running, why the author allowed herself to manage her weight loss objectives in smaller chunks compared to making a hundred changes at once, the author explains via her experiences why you sometimes may never expect and/or know who you’ll meet and what kind of impact a person will have on your life, and more.

Elucive Eden Elucidated Review

This kindlebook that is Elusive Eden Elucidated: Nautical Noah Vs. The Naughty Nephilim by D. George Harrison contains among the following details: the reasoning that relates to why he explains that the Garden of Eden is located in a particular place on earth, the author’s take on the Book of Enoch and his details on the Nephilim, earlier writing systems and more. This kindlebook was definitely different from what I expected it to be due to my spiritual beliefs being more eclectic/new age. Still, I came away with the paradigm of some of my beliefs being slightly altered. However, a person who is much more religious may get much more from this kindlebook.

Relates To Level of Interest With Youtube

I admit that I was inspired to obtain and view the following kindlebook How To Start A Youtube Channel For Fun and Profit by Ann Eckhart to help me determine and make a choice about starting my own personalized youtube channel after an offline interaction/experience that I had involving two people younger than me. I keep an open mind to learning various sources of knowledge from both men and women younger and older than me and this has often been that way since I was around 18 years old because I have interacted with people from diverse backgrounds both older and younger than me both during my time in the military and post military, including living in various places (Japan California Florida Virginia Maryland etc.). Some of the features in this kindlebook include: channel name, youtube partnership/update for 2019, filming equipment and set-up, cooking & baking videos, organizing videos, videos on multiple types of reviews, travel and more. I still need more time to give myself on when I would start my own youtube channel, however as a potential novice youtuber this kindlebook had some helpful details for me.

The following is an amazon review that I wrote on August 17, 2016 on the music collection titled Winner by Pet Shop Boys.

I decided to take a chance on purchasing and listening to this upbeat collection that is Winner by the Pet Shop Boys after hearing and enjoying “A Certain Je Ne Sais Quoi” via iheartradio. The songs are both original and pleasant to listen to especially with The Way Through The Woods (long version) being a calming melody that could easily be played on an online electronica andor chillout type of radio station. I also like that the collection ended on a tricky to pin down yet musically pleasant vibe with “I Started A Joke.”

The following is an online amazon review of the song that I wrote When Worlds Collide by Powerman 5000 on April 11, 2016

Late 90’s Hard Rock Classic

I remember first hearing this rock song of When Worlds Collide by Powerman 5000 during what was either my junior or senior year of high school through either local rock radio or television (it could have also been both). The guitar and lyrics of the song give it a musically energetic song that also mixes some music remnants of industrial rock. I admit to have also purchased the music video to this song back around 2012 on a portable music device that I purchased but I still have yet to figure out the full meaning of the song (I’ll have to look up the meaning later on today). Anyhow, the music video is also available online for people still on the fence about the song.

The following is an online amazon review of the song Keep Holdin On by Avril Lavigne that I wrote on June 23, 2018.

I would have to say that it was around either late 2007 andor early 2008 when I first heard this upbeat pop song that is Keep Holding On by Avril Lavigne from two friends that I was hanging out with after work who were playing this song while driving. Both the music and lyrics embody a delightful vibe of hope and better than expected pleasant life outcomes.

The following is an online amazon review of the song Invisible Touch by Genesis that I wrote by April 5, 2014. I confess that I originally purchased the version of this song Invisible Touch by Genesis via Amazon on May 27, 2013.

Invisible Touch by Genesis is a heartfelt tune about a man who has strong feelings for a woman who can sometimes be hard on his heart. He sings about the invisible hold that she has over him even with the knowledge that loving her turns his life upside down. Invisible Touch by Phil Collins is good to get if you like 80’s pop/soft rock music and/or tunes containing Phil Collins vocals.

The following is an online Amazon review of the song Hot Dog by Led Zeppelin from February 23, 2019

A Distinctive Country Rock Song

This country music and classic rock song hybrid that is Hot Dog by Led Zeppelin is extremely catchy and creatively whimsical. I am only guessing the meaning of this story though I am taking this song to be a music story of some man who admitted that he fell deeply in love with a 17 year old teenager who sounds to be a memorable type of female/woman though maybe also the female version of a womanizer andor heartbreaker with great physical beauty. Obviously this also appears to be a musical story of this man being on the receiving end of unrequited love because he talks of giving her something like she never had before in the lyrics with the implication if she was to ever give him another chance in either of their lifetimes. Nonetheless I would refrain from passing judgment on the 17 year old female if I was to ever know of/find out about such a young female (17 to 19 years old) in real life because I do believe in the phrase of that there is 3 sides to the story rule, each side of the two perspectives of the two people telling the story and the truth. Even as a woman currently in my 30s, I humbly and reluctantly admit that I have met some 17 to 19 year old females in both my personal and professional life who are highly intuitive and can sometimes see things more clearly/ as they are even sometimes compared to some of the men and women around my age andor older. However, I am far from denying that this Hot Dog song by Led Zeppelin is fun and probably a hybrid memorable song that I may remember for years to come because of the exquisite vocals and exciting music.

The following is an online amazon review of the song Love So Soft by Kelly Clarkson that I wrote on September 28, 2017

I admit that I frequently find out about new music either through local radio, Amazon music, iheartradio, Pandora, youtube etc. I have to credit Pandora for recently introducing me to this noteworthy song that is Love So Soft by Kelly Clarkson which I unexpectedly heard on local radio less than 3 hours later and I am glad that is available on Amazon. This song is so addictive because Love So Soft by Kelly Clarkson seems to be about a euphoric andor fun type of love that only gets better with time.

The following is an online amazon review of the music collection Remixes by Adam Lambert that I reviewed by November 26, 2011 and I confess to purchasing the Remixes by Adam Lambert music collection by October 22, 2011. Each of the songs have a draw you in type of music story though I admit that the song versions of For Your Entertainment and Voodoo definitely have a strong/dominant musical story energy to them.

I too agree that this collection contains strong remixes to hold many fans over until his next release. This collection gives six remixes from a sampling of Adam Lambert’s hits. My personal favorite is the Brad Walsh remix of “For Your Entertainment”. These Adam Lambert remixes are best for anyone that enjoys Adam Lambert’s singing and/or dance/pop tunes.

The following is an online amazon review from March 2, 2016 of the song Chemistry by Velvet.

Club And Electro-House Mix

Chemistry by Velvet is a song that blends house, club, and dance music together. The song chemistry appears to be an emotionally charged song about spending time with someone who ignites romantic electricity a.k.a as romantic passion. This song is also perfect for those who have enjoyed Velvet’s other catchy song Fix Me. From a writer’s standpoint, the whole idea of chemistry could be shown in a way where there is love at first sight followed by the angle of i.e. daring love (such as two people from two different professional career paths who are not suppose to be together).

The following is an online amazon review from that I wrote on June 9, 2018 of the song Heart by Pet Shop Boys. I first unexpectedly heard this Heart song by the spring 2012 andor summer 2012 timeframe.

This synth electronic club song that is Heart by Pet Shop boys is a very joyful type of tune. Heart by Pet Shop Boys has a harmonious blend of heartfelt vocals and visionary type of music that create a musical story of what I am guessing pertaining to being around someone who metaphorically makes your heart skip a beat, raises your emotions in a beneficial andor positive way.

The following is an online amazon review that I had written on May 29, 2016 of the song Wicked Game by Chris Isaak. I confess that I remember first hearing this song sometime by the time I was between 10 to 13 years old because I heard it the original version of Wicked Game play through the television that a family member was watching when I was supposed to be resting/experiencing sleeptime dreaming in the next room over.

Heard This Version From Pandora

I admit that I found out about this version of Wicked Game by Chris Isaak (Live From The Filmore) via the Duran Duran radio station on Pandora. This version is fun to listen to if you also enjoy his original version because Chris Isaak still sings with intensity in this song just in a live performance format. I’m glad Amazon had this version available because the original is also still brilliant to listen to yet this live version brings out the lyrics of this song in a different way in a more stripped down version (musically speaking).

I confess that the following amazon review is from a live version of the song Meet Virginia by Train that I had purchased on December 13, 2017 and reviewed/wrote on Amazon by June 2, 2018

This spectacular song that is Meet Virginia by Train (Live version) is a late 90s hard rock song with strong vocals and mix. This live version of Meet Virginia by Train is exciting to listen to even if you are a novice to hearing this song yet it is ideal if you are at least familiar with at least having previously hearing the version of Meet Virginia by Train from their 1998 titled Train collection andor their mp3 music collection titled the Collection. The online music video to Meet Virginia features Rebecca Gayheart who has been married to Eric Dane of the Last Ship television show.

I confess that I originally purchased the song Eden by Sarah Brightman via Amazon on October 21, 2011 and posted/written a review of the song via Amazon on December 13, 2014.

I first heard of this novel unique classical type of song back in the early 2000s. I had bought a music compilation from hong kong that included songs that were a blend of new age and classical music, and eden by sarah brightman is one of the strong songs that stood out to me. She bravely bares her musical soul in this song by expressing how she feels about an important person in her life and their version of eden.

Spirit World Connection/Communication Idea Book

I admit that I fortunately obtained the chance to purchase this kindlebook that is Medium: A Step by Step Guide To Communicating With The Spirit World by Konstanza Morning Star by the December 2, 2017 timeframe via amazon. Some of the details included in this kindlebook feature: why it is important to have gratitude and nurturing attitude, writing your prayers,what listening to music has to do with mediumship, people watch with clairsentience, a fun exercise in connecting to spirit helpers, long term spirit guides, healing guides, and more. I am blessed/lucky in both my personal and professional life and I have been married to an amazing husband for over 15 years who has been there for me regardless of how much money I have andor job title I have held. However, I have had some recent mysterious experiences happen in my life that have helped to remind me how I must be vigilant with my marriage career and money goals while still keeping focus on my spiritual life. Additionally, my late adoptive father within the past 2 years has sometimes unexpectedly popped up in my sleeptime dreams (he passed away by July 2017)and each time that this has happened I have awoken with an important insight relating to my career, money,and/or personal goals towards a thinner body. Towards the conclusion of his most recent earth life, he at least admitted to me that I was not in his will yet he at least showed greater support towards my marriage and did not sugarcoat what was on his mind when it came to what he wanted me to keep in mind for my career and money life (almost in a way that the sunset of his life influenced him to feel that he must say what he felt needed to be said to me especially when it came to my bodyweight goals though in his defense I can now intuitively understand why he said that with me now being in my upper 30s-though that is something for another post). The most recent sleeptime dream that I had of my late adoptive father took me by complete surprise in a way that he appeared he wanted to make it clear to me why he was taking the time to visit yet the timing was eerie when it occurred this week. I prefer to keep the details of the sleeptime dream private for good reasons, yet his most recent visit reminded me that I must still remember to somehow find a way to balance keeping a spiritual focus in my life even when I am logically and intuitively aware that I must also set certain goals for my marriage, career, money, and other goal areas of my life. I also remember my late adoptive father to be one who was strict with me yet who was also on the more aggressive side and the sleeptime dream images did convey bravery and courage. I am not implying that I intend to be more aggressive,rather I am admitting my intent to become more courageous, more self confident, braver, I intend to become more assertive and self confident even if I have to die trying.

I unexpectedly spotted this paperback version of the book 2006 TV Guide Film & Video Companion by Maitland McDonagh Ken Fox and The Editors of the TV Guide Movie Database from a university bookstore less than a mile from my current job for a bargain price. I admit that the writer in me indirectly influenced the purchase of this book because of the wide variety of films for me to consider to also give me some writing ideas. Some of the details/content/films listed in this book: Freaky Friday (page 333), In Good Company (page 453), Star Trek Insurrection and Star Wars on page 941, Zoolander on page 1147, and more.

I was already a little familiar with the PF Chang’s name because my husband and I would sometimes eat at P.F. Changes when we were living in Florida. Additionally, my husband and I use to live in Norfolk Virginia around part of the 2008 and part of the 2009 timeframe and we use to sometimes eat some of the foods from a P.F. Chang’s restaurant in Virginia Beach Virginia around the 2008 andor 2009 timeframe. Naturally, it was an easy decision for me to purchase this kindlebook. Some of the following recipes included in the kindlebook that is The Unauthorized Copycat Cookbook: Recreating Asian-Inspired Dishes Served At PF Chang’s Restaurant by JR Stevens includes: BBQ Spare Ribs, garlic noodles, orange peel chicken, crispy honey chicken,crispy honey shrimp, miso glazed salmon and more.

Ecstatic Classic Rock Love Song

I finally purchased an mp3 version of the Caught Up In You Song by 38 Special via amazon by January 8, 2018. However, I am fortunate/lucky to have first unexpectedly heard this song via a local Florida radio station by the 2006/2007 timeframe (my husband and I were living in Florida at this time through the navy). I obviously still enjoy listening to this song multiple years later and I am simply guessing that this classic rock love song symbolizes romantically caring about someone who appears to have left some positive andor healing mark on someone.

Meaningful Linkin Park Song

I would have to put the timeperiod of sometime around early 2002 (sometime between the January to June 2002 timeframe)when I fortunately experienced hearing this meaningful song that is Runaway by Linkin Park(I was living in Yokosuka Japan during this time through the military). A coworker owned the music collection by Linkin Park and she fortunately allowed me to borrow a Hybrid Theory cd by Linkin Park. I found myself unexpectedly liking this song because I always took the song to symbolize the positive message of bravely venturing to find the truth for oneself/being a truthseeker/seeking the truth answers for oneself. I find myself intuitively craving to listen to this song more often very recently and I am glad to have easily found this song on amazon to listen to. I still have yet to intuitively and logically flesh out the full meaning of this song even years later after first enjoying Runaway by Linkin Park. However, I intend to more fully research the meaning of this song within 48 to 49 hours andor less from now at the time of this writing.

The following is an Amazon review of the song Come Into My Dream by Foggy (Pulsedriver Radio Cut) by Foggy that I wrote on August 4, 2012

“Come Into My Dream” by Foggy first came into my awareness when I first heard it on the Yahoo dance radio station back in 2005. “Come Into My Dream” also plays on my personalized settings of Pandora Radio. I enjoy the Pulsedriver Radio Cut version of “Come Into My Dream” because it is longer than the other available versions and contains an uplifting chorus inferring the benevolent influence of celestial angels. This song toys with the happy concept of living in a utopian world and/or a joyful life. “Come Into My Dream” is best for those who enjoy imaginative and cheerful tunes from the early 2000s.

The following is an online amazon review of the music collection Timbaland RNB featuring various artists by Timbaland that I wrote by August 19, 2018. I admit that I was previously familiar with a multiple number of the songs on this music collection prior to my purchase and review of the collection because for instance I first heard the song Try Again by Aaliyah between the February to May 2000 timeframe via either radio television and the film Romeo Must Die, Rehab by Rihanna and Justin Timberlake by the January/February 2009 timeframe, 4 Minutes by Madonna feat. Timbaland and Justin Timberlake by the early 2008 timeframe (sometime between the April to June 2008 timeframe) etc. There are a multiple of other entertaining hits on this Timbaland RNB collection that I was previously familiar with prior to the purchase of this collection, I was just listing a small sampler of some of those songs.

This collection of songs that are titled Timbaland RNB featuring various artists and Timbaland

are a superb blend of songs from a mix of multiple artists/musicians that include collaborations/ songs featuring Can We by SWV feat. Missy Elliott and Timbaland,Try Again by Aaliyah feat. Timbaland, 4 Minutes by Madonna feat.Timbaland and Justin Timberlake, Rehab by Rihanna feat. Timbaland and Justin Timberlake, collaborations with Janet Jackson, Ginuwine,Bobby Valentino,Nelly Furtado, Brandy, Destiny’s Child, and more.

The following is an amazon review of the song One In A Million by Aaliyah that I wrote by August 19, 2018

A One of a Kind Love Theme Song

This song One In A Million by Aaliyah is a 90s era R&B and dance song that is also a brilliant love song. I am guessing that this song is basically a musical story of having extreme romantic andor love type emotions for someone. I actually first heard this song via both local radio and television sometime around mid to late 90s.

The following is an Amazon review of the song Sangria Wine by Pharrell Williams and Camilla Cabello that I wrote by June 23, 2018

This music collaboration of Sangria Wine by Pharrell Williams & Camilla Cabello is dynamic. I admit that I am still making out the meaning of the song yet I am guessing that the analogy of Sangria wine in this club song is about basically being around someone who evokes emotional heat in a good way.

One Of A Kind Eclectic Love Song

I confess that I actually had a chance to purchase this original song that is Love Of My Life by Santana feat. Dave Matthews & Carter Beauford via Amazon by December 16, 2017.However, I am fortunate to have first heard this song by the February 2000 to June 2000 timeframe. I am guessing that this love song music mashup of pop rock and salsa symbolizes a music story of having a romantic interest in someone that is memorable for at least a lifetime.

This house and club mix song of One Thing by Mr. Belt & Wezol, Jack Wins is an amusing tune that I unexpectedly heard recently while I was curious to seeing what song would play on a certain dance radio station that I had selected to hear. The beats and vocals to the song make it a festive type of song and appear to be a creative music tribute to the One Thing song by Amerie.

I truthfully first heard this catchy song that is One Thing by Amerie unexpectedly around the 2006/2007 timeframe online. I confess that a dance music group called Mr. Belt & Wezol, Jack Wins got me curious to listen to this song again after I spontaneously heard a music tribute to this song recently. This song One Thing by Amerie is great to listen to if you are an eclectic music listener who enjoys love songs andor if you enjoy music mashups because One Thing by Amerie has a distinctive blend of hip-hop, club, and go-go music.

The following is an amazon review of the music collection that is Dreamcatcher Chillout (best sensual lounge music from ambient Ibiza chill to jazzy downbeat) by various artists that I wrote by the January 9 2015 timeframe.

A Chillout Set of Novelty

As a female who inherited her Native American/Menominee Indian heritage from her biological mother and maternal grandmother, I confess that I decided to take a chance with purchasing Dreamcatcher Chillout (best sensual lounge music from ambient Ibiza chill to jazzy downbeat) by various artists on December 6, 2014. This was because of the symbolism of the Dreamcatcher symbolism on the self-confident looking woman pictured-which is synonymous with Native American culture in a harm-free intent way. I keep an open mind in the music that I listen to, but it is not everyday that I see Native American symbolism and/or Native American females represented in mainstream music, chillout music, and/or dance music especially since I am lucky to have had the privilege of purchasing multiple chillout cds since my husband introduced me to the chillout music genre back around 2005. The forty nine tracks make the price that I paid for this collection a bargain. However, I would have to declare that Summer Dreams (See The Light mix), Follow Your Dreams (café Ibiza bedroom lounge mix) by Silver Sparrow, In my Dreams by Sweet Velvet, Timeless (chill mix) by Mood Chill, only a Dream (sexy and I know mix) by Hotplay, and Dawn of the light (Guitar Del mar mix) by Lounge Lotion are some of the multiple tracks that I enjoy from this Dreamcatcher Chillout Set. This collection titled Dreamcatcher Chillout (best sensual lounge music from ambient Ibiza chill to jazzy downbeat)is perfect for those who like eclectic chillout, dance, and electronic music mixes.

Beating heart Ellie Goulding

The following is an amazon review of the song Beating Heart by Ellie Goulding that I wrote by June 26, 2014

Electric Song of Vivid Emotions

Beating Heart by Ellie Goulding appears to pertain around being close to a person that touches your heart. Listening to Beating Heart gives one that sense that the singer is discussing a person who they feel strong desire toward, Beating Heart by Ellie Goulding is perfect for those who enjoy love songs with an electronic/trance vibe.

The following is an online amazon review of the song Aviation High by Semi Precious Weapons that I wrote by June 26, 2014.

Aviation High by Semi Precious Weapons seems to be a song about spending time with someone that gives a feeling of freedom and a sense that you were meant to be in their life. However, the song’s meaning does seem to change when one watches the shocking youtube video that accompanies it. However, Aviation High by Semi Precious Weapons is god for those who like alternative and/or indie rock songs.

Samanthas Restaurant in Silver Spring Maryland

Less than 9 hours ago, my husband and I mutually agreed to try the Samantha’s Restaurant in Silver Spring, Maryland. We both shared a queso fundido appetizer and my husband had the Samantha’s Combo #2 which was a fajita trio with skirt steak shrimp and chicken with a coke drink while I had the chile relleno meal with sprite. We both liked our food, the employees interacting with us were friendly and I feel lucky to have easily been able to pay for our meal(however I keep an open mind to both paid and amateur writers/reviewers/critics).

Some Ideas On Experiencing Good Luck/Being Highly Lucky

This kindlebook that is How To Get Lucky: 13 Techniques For Discovering and Taking Advantage of Life’s Good Breaks by Max Gunther attracted my interest because I already consider myself a lucky person in both my personal and professional life and I figured that I could utilize more information on increasing my knowledge of luck even further (it was an easy decision for me to eventually purchase the kindlebook version of this title because I am fortunate to have purchased a paperback version of this book through amazon on August 13, 2012). Before I proceed further here are some examples of what I consider good luck: the fact that I am American born and I grew up with an adoptive family where I learned a great deal of being open-minded to other cultures and ways of living different from my own, I’m lucky to have a job that pays me well for what I do and having an abundance of free time to utilize towards some of my other goals, being lucky and in the right place and right time to have unexpectedly met my amazing husband by the time I was 21 years old (when I was living in Yokosuka Japan through the U.S. Navy), being privileged to have lived in multiple parts of the United States etc. Some of the details that this kindlebook covers includes: being open-minded to go where events flow the fastest, taking risks in carefully measured spoonfuls, an example of what the author means with his fourth technique with an example of a woman who had inherited about $100,000 from her father and what both her and her husband decided to do with the money, what luck has to sometimes do with keeping silent about some of the goals that a person has, and more. The only caveat is that I just wish that intuition was thoroughly discussed because I have discovered how helpful intuition has been with increasing my understanding/knowledge of good luck.

I admit that the following is a review of the kindlebook Disney Dining Plan 2019 by Leah Crocker Althiser from November 12, 2017. I’m intuitively and logically/rationally aware that it is not my destiny/part of my lifepurpose to reside in Orlando Florida, rather I credit the indirect influence of my current job for having subconsciously opening my mind to look at kindlebooks similar to this title

This kindlebook of the Disney Dining Plan 2018 Tips and Tricks for Making the Most of the Dining Plans at Walt Disney World by Leah Crocker Althiser contains a vast variety of meal ideas for a prospective visitor. The author also explains that she is crafting the guide more as a labor of love compensation free for the meal plan ideas that she gives which includes among the following some of the most popular restaurants such as Be Our Guest (Magic Kingdom), Cinderella’s Royal Table (Magic Kingdom), Chef Mickey’s (Contemporary Resort), Ohana (Polynesian Resort), Disney Plan 2017 Prices,Disney Dining Plan 2018 Prices,kids under three eating free at certain restaurants,a resort refillable mug, a photo of a quick service entrée at Columbia Harbor House Magic Kingdom,a picture of a buffett meal at Grand Floridian Resort,French fries with pulled pork and cheese at Flame Tree Barbecue in Animal Kingdom, dessert sampler at Epcot Food & Wine Festival ribs at Flame Tree Barbecue Animal Kingdom, and more.

A Mood Booster of a Dance/Club Song

I am lucky to have originally and unexpectedly heard this entertaining dance/hip-hop)club song that is Cyclone by Baby Bash feat. T-Pain via a local Florida radio station when my husband and I lived on the Mayport Naval Base(that played a mix of music genres) by the 2007/2008 timeframe. I am simply guessing that the song appears to be about someone who is popular andor well-known among many people because of their charisma, some portions of their behavior, andor because of the way they look andor act. Regardless, this Cyclone song is definitely a mood booster if you are an eclectic music listener andor you enjoy his song that is a Reggae Remix version of Suga Suga by Baby Bash feat. Major Riley because both have a similar entertaining/distinctive music energy (the Reggae Remix version is currently listed on Amazon to be from the album Tha Smokin Nephew for those who are curious about that song).

The following is an Amazon review of the amusing Hot song by Avril Lavigne that I originally wrote on August 30, 2012. I first heard this one of a kind song from either a local radio station andor television by the 2008 timeframe when my husband were residing in Norfolk Virginia. The lyrics in the song You’re So Good To Me in the Hot song by Avril Lavigne make me think of my wonderful husband in a happy/joyful way.

Sentimental Side of Avril Lavigne

“Hot” by Avril Lavigne is a strong musical tune about being around someone that you have strong romantic feelings for. I like this song because it reminds me of the upbeat vibe of “Keep Holding On”. It is a great tune to have as a positive love song.

I admit that the following Amazon review of Ask Your Guides: Connecting To Your Divine Support System by Sonia Choquette is from March 3, 2011. However, I am fortunate to obtained the opportunity to purchase the kindlebook at a later time period. I am also fortunate that both my late adoptive mother and my late adoptive father raised me in a way that paved the foundation for me to have an open mind and be interested in writings that include this kindlebook and others like it. Additionally, I also feel lucky that my husband is ultra supportive and understanding of my spiritual beliefs/interests.

Spiritual Assistance From Your Personal Spiritual Helpers

March 3, 2011

Sonia Choquette’s “Ask Your Guides” book is very powerful and healing. This book has been very helpful to me. I say this because I use to think that you had to be perfect and the societal version of a saintly person to recieve spiritual blessings and help before discovering her book. When I discovered “Ask Your Guides” by Sonia Choquette an awareness came on within me that everyone is worthy of spiritual blessings and beneficial universal resources regardless of how they lived their life. I admit that I happen to be a heart-centered person who is a mixture of a free spirit blended with a compassionate personality. Reading Sonia Choquette’s “Ask Your Guides” book is very healing because it contains information on how everyone can attract the assistance from powerful and benevolent universal helpers and resources if they ask, believe, and listen to any intuitive promptings. Sonia Choquette is also one of the authors that I respectfully give credit to that helped me open my eyes to being aware of help from my higher self. The following is some of the life-changing information contained in this book.

1) How to prepare to meet your spirit guides. (I really enjoy that she lists some answers to frequently asked questions such as the number of spirit guides someone has, in addition to who they are and where they come from.

2) Information on steps to take regarding how to write to your guides and other members of your divine support system.

3) How to know if you are dealing with negative entities, setting clear boundaries, and some powerful information on what to do in order to send them away, and be a clear channel for celestial and positive energies.

4) Sonia includes beneficial data on speaking to your guides through oracles.

5) All of the chapters in the book are very informative and soul nourishing. However, I confess that my favorite chapter of this book is titled: Your Higher Self:The Greatest Guide of All. Sonia includes enlightening details on connecting with your higher self, and she builds a persuasive case on why connecting with your higher self is one of the most important goals that a person can have.

“Ask Your Guides” by Sonia Choquette is a magnificent book that contains life changing and helpful information that is in the same spirit as “Spiritual Growth: Being Your Higher Self” by Sanaya Roman. I really enjoy and cherish the “Ask Your Guides” book by Sonia Qhoquette because I am always able to reference and apply the illuminating information contained within through the challenging times as well as the good times in my life. “Ask Your Guides” by Sonia Choquette is very helpful to have handy if you believe and/or you experience an abundance of miracles in your life, and you desire a handbook that assists in tapping into this positive energy.

The following amazon review of the kindlebook Food Truck Roadtrip A Cookbook by Kim Pham & Philip Shen with Terri Phillips (creators of Behind the Food Carts named the Best Culinary Travel Blog by Saveur Magazine) was posted/written by March 12, 2018

A Good Mix of Food Trucks Featured

March 12, 2018

I admit even as an amateur reviewer with a strong writing passion, that I have to credit the indirect influence of my current job for part of my proliferating interest in these types of kindlebooks such as Food Truck Road Trip-A Cookbook More Than 100 Recipes Collected From The Best Street Food Vendors Coast To Coast by Kim Pham, Phillip Shen, and Terri Phillips. Some of the tantalizing tidbits/features in this kindlebook Doc’s Of The Bay-Zak Silverman-Oakland California including a recipe for a fried chicken sandwich with fennel slaw,Big D’s Grub Truck Dennis Kum New York NY and his recipe for fried chicken, a macaroni and cheese and a pork burger with bacon tomato jam recipe from Timothy Mark Abell and Caleb Patrick Orth of Los Angeles California inspired by Flat Iron truck, a Rockin Hero Burger from Brett Eanes of Mix’D Up Food Truck, BBQ pulled tacos from Hill Country Barbecue truck Redwood City California, Pie Pushers food truck, Frencheeze Food Truck, The Egg Carton food truck, The Urban Oven truck based out of Los Angeles California, and a recipe for bacon and sweet onion pizza and more.

A Novel Type of Matchmaking

I am fortunate to utilize my kindle unlimited membership to have a look at Cupid Inc. Cupid and Psych (Cupid Inc. Book 2) by Andie M. Long. The setting and characters of Cupid and Psych reside in a one of a kind type of supernatural world of its own, with the book dealing with some characters who have a high level of talented matchmaking superpowers.

A Mix of Different Regional U.S. Recipes

This kindlebook that is American Cooking: State by State Iconic Recipes by Louise Davidson has among the following recipes listed to be in connection from multiple areas of the United States that include: Fried Green Tomatoes, lobster rolls, Las Vegas Prime Rib dinner, and more.

Various Recipes Affiliated With Multiple Fairs

This kindlebook that is Fair Food Recipes: Famous Food Found At County State Fairs by JR Stevens contains among the following recipes: California Deep Fried Avocados & Dipping Sauce, Fried Cheese Bites & Dipping Sauce, Deep Fried Jalapenos with dipping sauce, waffle fry nachos, chocolate caramel apples, and more. I am glad to have utilized my kindle unlimited membership to have a look at this kindlebook.

I admit that the following Amazon review of DJ Bobo’s Greatest Hits is from June 15, 2008

Love Is All Around

I can tell that dj bobo and the artists sang many of these songs with love and passion. As you can tell from the title of my review the song “love is all around” is one of my favorite songs. Although some of my other notable favorites are “games people play”, “amazing life”, “there is a party”, “everybody” and “secrets of love”. I too agree that dj bobo deserves much more worldwide recognition. This is especially true after viewing some of his youtube videos where he really puts much creativity, love, and joy into his music videos. After watching his videos I completely understand and agree with the viewpoint of dj bobo as a nice and very talented guy. I admit that I partially got this cd because of the positive reviews of the other reviewers that listened to it before me. Plus I intuitively felt an urge to buy this cd. Needless to say that I am very happy that I did purchase this cd. The thing I love about this cd is how uplifting the songs are with beautiful lyrics and positive energy. I bought this cd around a time last year when I was going through some challenges. The unexpected benefit to this cd was that it instantly cheered me up when I played it. Things have fortunately been getting better and better for me. I have listened to it many times since then and will continue to listen to it. Its just that I am grateful that I came across the cd when I needed it the most. So if you are looking for some wonderful, cheerful, and original music that has an abundance of creativity (along with something to sing along to and dance) definitely check out this cd. In my opinion you will most definitely be happy that you bought this cd.

Bold Love Song

I’m fortunate/lucky to have unexpectedly known about this song from seeing Crave by Madonna & Swae Lee featured in an email newsletter that I received. Basically this Crave song appears to be a bold pop/hip-hop type of love song that has the same musical story as the dance/electronic song titled Get Together from Madonna’s Confessions On A Dance Floor music collection (which I am fortunate to have obtained as a gift from my husband around the 2006/2007 timeframe).

Seasons Of Life Type of Song

I remember first hearing this distinctive rock song Walk On The Ocean by Toad The Wet Sprocket as a teen (by the time I was between 13to 15 years old). The music and vocals flow harmoniously together to create a what seems to be a timeline musical type of story.

Cheery Type of Song

This fun song Freedom by Pharrell Williams has an upbeat and positive vibe to it. A music listener might enjoy this song if they like the Happy song by Pharrell Williams.

Informative Washington D.C. Sights

I luckily/fortunately came across this paperbackbook that is Frommer’s Washington D.C. Day By Day : 22 Smart Ways To See The City by Meredith Pratt at a university bookstore less than a mile from my current job. I was able to get this book at a reasonable price which contains among the following information/details: The Best Special Interest Tours that include the theme of Political Washington (starts on page 25-26), info on the Octagon Museum on page 51, places that include Capitol Hill Books, Eastern Market and Barracks Row (page 99), Dining Best Bets and Restaurants A To Z on pages 132-133, map of some of the DC Hotels (pages 160-161), and more.

Various Places Referenced

This kindlebook that is Americas Best Food Cities by Tom Sietsema via the Washington Post feature: Portland Farmers Market via Portland State University, some place called Blue Star Donuts, a place called Heart, a husband and wife team who run a place called the Expatriate, a place called the Nuvrei Bakery, a place called Omnivore Books On Food in San Francisco California, some eating place called the Liholiho Yacht Club in California, some place called Ferry Building Marketplace in California, Spago in Los Angeles, some place called Book Soup in West Hollywood California, some place called Kitchen Witch in New Orleans, La Petite Grocery in New Orleans, some recipe called Vidalia’s Lemon Chess Pie from Vidalia restaurant in Washington D.C., Pizzeria Paradiso locations in the Washington D.C. area, a food place called the A. litteri listed in the kindlebook to be one of the oldest Italian grocery places in Washington D.C., and more.

Detailed First Time Home Buying Kindlebook

I am aware of how lucky/blessed/charmed that I am in both my personal and professional/career life and I am aware that I am responsible for doing all I can to shape multiple circumstances in my life. However, I keep an open mind in both offline and online sources for learning more knowledge in relation to my personal andor professional goals regardless if the timeframe for accomplishing certain goals are in progress andor highly probable. Still,this kindlebook that is From Renting To Buying: A Basic Guide To First Time Home Buying and Home Ownership by Ben Stefan caught my attention because of a personal goal and intent that I have of purchasing a home for my husband and I by the year 2025 and/or sooner. Fortunately my husband and I are both in agreement on where we would purchase the home. Obtaining this book proved helpful to me for details because I understand that it is common knowledge and human nature for many people to consult in immediate friends andor family members sometimes for home advice. However, both of my late adoptive parents have passed away and many of my siblings who were adopted with me along with other family members live in a region of the U.S. that is different economically speaking from where my husband and I currently reside. This is far from a reflection andor judgement on where they live rather I am realistically admitting why I keep an open mind to other sources of first time home purchase information because I do logically know the difference between being realistic yet also being settle free and allowing oneself to dream a little regardless of how other family members are doing career and/or money wise. What do I mean by this: being realistic and/or humble/modest: keeping an open mind towards looking at and/or considering career goals andor schooling ideas by how well some of the most successful and financially independent friends andor family members are doing for understanding and ideas for career andor money progression that indirectly affects their real estate andor home purchase goals. An example of allowing oneself to dream a little even if some well meaning andor well liked people may think you are dreaming too big: Choosing a location to live long-term within the U.S. that one is both passionate about andor highly interested in for multiple reasons while also taking into account one’s personal and/or professional goals/interests regardless where other professionally successful, happy, andor financially successful family members live. Fortunately, the author touches upon this in the section of the kindlebook describing asking oneself what type of community they are looking to live/reside in, why it’s helpful to look at the school system regardless if you are with kids, what to keep in mind once you find the home you like, some first time homebuyer programs that list types of loans that include FHA types of loan and HUD types of loan, some of the author’s ideas on creating and adding value to a home once first time homeownership is achieved, biography on the author, and more.

Resilient and Encouraging

This song Love Wins by Carrie Underwood appears to be about the message of love and hope winning even in the most trying of circumstances. The strong vocals also seem to be about having enduring spiritual strength/resilience.

This song Make It Sweet by Old Dominion appears to be a cheery/uplifting song making the best from life through both the unexpected and good times. I also like how the lyrics send a sunny/optimistic tone of being there for someone almost like an enduring love/lasting love theme song.

Honey Maid Graham Crackers

My husband sweetly surprised me with a 14.4 box Honey Maid Graham Crackers. He brought them as a way for me to satisfy my sweet tooth with something that has the right amount of sweetness and honey flavor. Fortunately, he too also likes the Honey Maid Graham Crackers.

Previously written reviews

I originally wrote a review of Mothership by Led Zeppelin on July 1, 2018

This music collection of Mothership by Led Zeppelin has a strong selection of greatest hits such as Good Times Bad Times (NPR recently featured footage of a young musician covering that song), Stairway to Heaven, Heartbreaker, Whole Lotta Love,Black Dog, Over the Hills and Far Away, Kashmir, All My Love, and more. The lyrics and classic rock sounds in a number of these songs harmonize to give a myriad of meanings to the timeless energy of these songs.

I originally wrote a review of Timbaland Presents Shock Value on March 21, 2018

I admit that I was drawn to give this music collection of Shock Value by Timbaland a try because of the positive message in The Way I Are by Timbaland feat. Keri Hilson, Sebastian, and D.O.E of loving someone regardless of the amount of money they make. Fortunately my husband and I have always had a marriage that withstands fluctuating incomes yet for whatever reason The Way I Are still resonates with my soul years later (my husband and I first started to listen to this song around 2007). Anyhow, there are other entertaining club songs on this Shock Value music collection by Timbaland such as Give it To Me by Timbaland feat. Nelly Furtado Justin Timberlake, Boardmeeting by Timbaland feat. Magoo, Scream by Timbaland feat. Keri Hilson,Fantasy by Timbaland feat. Money, One and Only by Timbaland feat. Fall Out Boy, and more.

I originally wrote a review of the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack on February 10, 2017

A Wide Mix of Some Songs With One Caveat

The Fifty Shades Darker Film soundtrack is perfect to get if you enjoyed the first Fifty Shades of Grey (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) from 2015. Even if you do not have the first soundtrack, some of the songs to sample on this soundtrack on the Fifty Shades Darker film are definitely some of the songs such as: I Don’t Wanna Live Forever by Zayn & Taylor Swift, Not Afraid by Halsey, Bom Bidi Bom by Nick Jonas & Nicki Minaj etc. The only caveat is that the soundtrack to this film is a little more quieted down compared to the first (more quiet songs compared to the 2015 soundtrack). I’m guessing the obvious reason was for the creation of a soundtrack to play while you have quality time with that certain special someone in your life (romantically speaking). However, it is helpful to have an eclectic mix in music due to the fact that this soundtrack does not stick to just one genre. For instance, the song What Would It Take by Anderson East has more of a blues type of music sound while Not Afraid Anymore by Halsey is a mix of chill-out and slight hints of electronic music.

I originally wrote a review of the Coyote Ugly soundtrack music collection on July 10, 2015

Medley of Weekend Music Tunes

I actually first purchased this music collection of the Coyote Ugly soundtrack back in April 7, 2007 when I was still living in Florida (through the United States Navy). There are a multiple number of hits on the Coyote Ugly Soundtrack such as All She Wants To Do is Dance by Don Henley, Can’t Fight The Moonlight by Leann Rimes, Power by Snap, Unbelievable by EMF, Devil Went Down to Georgia by Charlie Daniels Band etc. The movie itself is pretty decent as well. Nonetheless, the Coyote Ugly Soundtrack is perfect for those who like eclectic music and/or liked the Coyote Ugly movie.

I originally wrote a review of the playlist Behind The Beats Timbaland on December 14, 2018

Tremendous Hip-Hop R&B Playlist

This astounding music playlist that is Behind the Beats Timbaland has a terrific mix of artists and groups included in this collection. The song The Way I Are by Timbaland feat. Keri Hilson and D.O.E. is one of the tunes that both my husband and I have enjoyed together before when it was played on the radio around the 2007 timeframe. Additionally,some of the songs included in this playlist that are Partition by Beyonce, Take it Easy On Me by Robin Thicke and more are more from the time period after 2010. However, I also recognize a multiple number of these songs featured from either my teen years andor my 20s either from local radio, television, andor a cd purchase. Songs that I recognized hearing from either my teens andor 20s Ginuwine, Nelly Furtado, One Republic, LLCool J, SWV, the song by Nicole feat. Missy Elliott and Mocha, Ludacris, 50 Cent, Justin Timberlake and more. There are also a multiple number of songs that Timbaland has created to enjoy listening to if you are still on the fence with this playlist that include Hands in the Air by Timbaland feat. Neyo, Try Again by Aaliyah feat. Timbaland, Scream by Timbaland feat. Keri Hilson and Nicole Scherzinger, Carryout by Justin Timberlake and Timbaland, 4 Minutes by Madonna feat. Justin Timberlake and Timbaland, etc.

I originally wrote a review of the music collection Girl by Pharrell Williams on March 5, 2014

I admit that I toyed with the idea to check out Pharrell Williams “Girl” cd after hearing and enjoying the “Happy ” song. The 10 songs on this version are invigorating musical tracks. Currently, I am enjoying Happy,Hunter, Gush, Gust of Wind, and Lost Queen the most from “Girl”. However, there are also other catchy tunes on “Girl” such as the song features with Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys, and the compelling beginning of Marilyn Monroe. “Girl” is great to get for those who are open to listening to music trakcs that have hints of R&B, club music, and electronica beats.

I originally wrote a review of the music collection The Best of Nickelback Vol. 1 by Nickelback on November 23, 2013

Nickelback’s Greatest Hits Sampler

The Best of Nickelback Volume 1 features a strong range of this band’s rock hits across the span of their career. There are a range of popular and fantastic songs on this compilation such as “Photograph”, “Rockstar”, “Savin Me”, “If Today Was Your Last Day”, “Far Away”, “Lullaby”,“If Everyone Cared”, and “This Afternoon.” My first Nickelback collection was “All The Right Reasons” and was purchased by my husband as a birthday gift for me around what I believe was Autumn 2007. However, many newcomers to the music of Nickelback would also like many of the songs on this collection.

I originally wrote a review of the song Dangerous by David Guetta feat. Sam Martin on December 13, 2014.

Love With the Adrenaline Rush

Dangerous by David Guetta feat. Sam martin appears to be a musical gem about admitting to a person you have a crush on that you do have feelings for them and yet admitting that you are also drawn to them because of their dangerous persona/connection to danger. Dangerous by David Guetta feat. Sam martin is in the same light-hearted spirit as lovers on the sun and yet creatively takes a unique detour via exploring a person’s mysterious persona via dangerous.

I originally a review of the song Great Spirit by Armin Van Buuren & Vini Vici feat. HiLight Tribe (Wildstylez Remix) on July 9, 2017

Distinctive Trance/Dance Tune

I admit that I unintentionally came across this unique hit that is Great Spirit by Armin Van Buuren vs. Vini Vinci feat. Hilight Tribe (Wildstylez Remix) recently on youtube (as I am a subscriber to Armin Van Buuren’s youtube channel). I am so glad that Amazon has this Great Spirit song available as it is still very rare for me to hear any type of Northern Native American themed songs on local radio andor any of the online media channels that I listen to let alone mixed with dance, trance, andor club music despite me being an eclectic music listener who listens to various types of music from both local radio and online. The Great Spirit song also has a very happy and upbeat trance and dance melody in it and is actually perfect to listen to if you also like Armin Van Buuren’s Sunny Days song with Josh Cumbee.

I originally wrote the review of the music collection a Town Called Paradise (Deluxe) by Tiesto on June 26, 2014

A Musical Place Called Paradise

I admit that I purchased A Town Called Paradise by Tiesto right on the release day (June 17) in order to consult with my husband first before buying this music collection (especially because I had his June 14th birthday to think and plan for as well). I can honestly say that I felt that I got my money’s worth from buying A Town Called Paradise by Tiesto because I seriously enjoy every song on this collection and would watch the music videos released for any of these songs on A Town Called Paradise. However, my current top favorite songs on this collection would have to be A Town Called Paradise feat. Zac Barnett of American Authors, Written In Reverse with Hardwell feat. Matthew Koma, Last Train with Firebeatz feat. Lady Hawke, Shimmer feat. Christian Burns, Set Yourself Free feat. Krewella, Rocky by Kaaze, Calling On Angels (feat. Elan Lea) by Fred Falke,and Wasted feat. Matthew Koma. There is a wide musical style of songs that will appeal to many listeners of trance/electronic music.

I originally wrote the review on the Best of Robert Plant Playlist on December 23, 2018

Classic Rock and Folk Music

This Amazon music playlist that is titled Best of Robert Plant has a well crafted mix of classic rock, folksy and futuristic melodies in the playlist with the features of Shine It All Around, Rich Woman, In The Mood, 29 Palms, and more. The song is not currently on the playlist yet if you are a novice to his music some songs to try would be Fortune Teller by Robert Plant and Allyson Kraus andor music from the Mighty Rearranger collection because the vibe to a multiple number of these songs syncs up with Fortune Teller and Mighty Rearranger.

I originally wrote the review of Manic Nirvana cd by Robert Plant on May 20, 2018

Unexpected Gleaming Music Find

I confess that I recently purchased this radiant music collection that is Manic Nirvana by Robert Plant at a music store a few miles away from where my husband and I live unexpectedly for a discount price. Manic Nirvana by Robert Plant is best to listen to if you like classic rock with a romantic slant because some of the songs such as Hurting Kind I’ve Got My Eyes on You, Big Love, Nirvana etc. underline themes indirectly pertaining to love andor romance.

I originally wrote the review of the song Lovesong by The Cure by December 23, 2010

This is a definite classic alternative rock/pop love song that I first heard in the 80’s, and I still enjoy to this day. I read somewhere online that this song was actually inspired by the lead singer’s then fiancee, who eventually became his wife, and still is his spouse to this day. I truthfully feel that is a positive and beautiful fact considering I am a romantic at heart. Anyhow, this is a great song about how free and happy someone feels when they are alone with someone that they are passionate about. I also think that the song is intense and deep in a beautiful way when the singer remarks regardless of what he says, he is always going to love the one that he implies makes him feel alive when he is alone with that person.

I originally wrote the review of the song Best Day Of My Life by American Authors on April 19, 2014

Emotionally Pleasing Melody

“Best Day Of My Life” by American Authors is both a heartwarming and cheerful tune that symbolizes the expectancy of a day that is going to go by smoothly and brightly. “Best Day Of My Life” combines folk rock melodies with poppy beats.

I originally wrote the review of the song Waterfall by Pink feat. Sia on April 14, 2017

I’m Glad That This Song is Available On Amazon Because

I confess that I am still trying to decipher the full meaning of the song Waterfalls by Stargate feat. Sia and P!nk. From my perspective, it appears to be a unique electronic/dance love song of a person who has left a major impact on someone else. As many know, I access various online sources Amazon, Youtube, Pandora, iheartradio to discover my music as well as local radio. I wish that I could remember if it was hearing the song from Pandora, iheartradio, or youtube that influenced me to eventually listen to this song more (maybe it was listening to it on Pandora?). Regardless, Waterfalls by Stargate feat. Sia and P!nk is great to listen to if you like electronic/dance club love songs.

I originally wrote the review of the song Addicted To You by Avicii on March 1, 2014.

Addicted To You by Avicii appears to be a song about someone who has immense love for someone to the point past infatuation. I glanced the music video, which appeared to match the song’s meaning. The only catch is that this woman appears to go towards dangerous extremes for the one who means so much to her.

I originally wrote the review of the song Sugar by Robin Schulz feat. Francesco Yates on September 10, 2015.

Sugar (feat. Francesco Yates) by Robin Schulz is an electronic song with some hints of guitar and seems to be a song of being with someone who evokes a romantic high with a sense of unpredictability. Sugar (feat. Francesco Yates) is also great for those who are familiar with and/or who have enjoyed the quieter radio version of Suga Suga by Baby Bash or the Reggae Remix version of Suga Suga by Baby Bash (also credited to Major Riley and The Smokin Nephew)that is on the Universal Smash Hits 2 cd (track 7).

I originally wrote the review of this song Lay Me Down by Avicii feat. Nile Rodgers and Adam Lambert on September 28, 2013

A Bold and Magnificent Tune

“Lay Me Down” by Avicii is an amusing electronic and dance music song that features the superb vocals of Adam Lambert. Currently, the song is also available to listen online through youtube. “Lay Me Down” is a quality electronic and dance music song that is great for those who are familiar with music from Avicii, Adam Lambert, and/or Nile Rogers.

I originally wrote the review of the book Toast to Tidewater: Celebrating Virginia’s Finest Food and Beverages by Junior League of Norfolk-Virginia Beach Inc. on August 12, 2018

A Vast Inclusion of Diverse Recipes

This book that is Toast to Tidewater Celebrating Virginia’s Finest Food & Beverages by Junior League of Norfolk Beach has a vast range of abundant recipes such as Epicurean White Pizza (page 60), Chesapeake Bay Ham & Cheese Pizza (page 61), Margarita Shrimp (page 106), Drunken Ship Overboard (page 107), Landslide Lime Seasoned Grilled Salmon (page 107), Asiago Chive Mashed Potatoes (page 124), Roasted Potato & Fennel Hash (page 124), Cranberry Basmati Rice (page 125), Virginia Peanuts & Okra (page 125), Tantalizing Toffee Cheesecake (page 138), Pineapple Cheesecake (page 139) and much more.

I Feel Fortunate To Have Obtained This For Free

This kindlebook that is We Live Many Lives The Proof of Reincarnation Volumes 1&2 contains some fascinating writings on the authors work/collaboration with peering into the akashic records and previous lives of a multiple number of men and women. Information is given on some of the multiple cultures andor time periods that each person lived through in their previous lives. The author also gives a helpful reminder that there are multiple reasons why sometimes two people can do the exact same things towards a certain goal and why one person may get the intended result while the other person may still be working towards the certain goal. However, even with that admission he helps the reader understand why a person would benefit working through their karma because of this and more. I feel lucky to have obtained this kindlebook for free with the multiple past life case studies in this kindlebook.

Some Compelling Details In Describing The Afterlife However

I understand that it probably took a lot of courage/bravery for the author to publish this kindlebook that is Heaven Revealed: Collected Works of The Supreme Spiritual Master Alan Valiant Volume 1 by Alan Valiant and I hope that he obtains whatever spiritual benefits/healing that he is looking for in his life. The positives his writings include some interesting details on the type of body that a person is still capable of having even in the afterlife including certain details on pertaining to relationships and other types of lofty goals. The caveats: I far from condone suicide and I believe that each human soul has a purpose and value to this world regardless of who they are andor where they came from. However, his strict judgement on men and women who voluntarily take their lives far from accounts that it obviously depends on the person’s intent andor if they only took themselves andor others with them and other factors etc, strict human judgment on what a woman chooses to do with her body, strict human judgment on based on if a man or woman takes a mainstream path in who they are romantically in love with even if the other person is a consenting adult, and other reasons. However, I unexpectedly enjoyed Alan Valiant’s other kindlebook We Have Many Lives-Volumes 1 & 2 much more even with the fact that I obtained that kindlebook for free because his writings and thoughts seem at least more open-minded in the We Have Many Lives kindlebook.


Category Archives: Culinary History

The Cuban sandwich is important. People fight for it and about it. Who created it and where? That is just the tip of the loaf. My take? The Cuban sandwich is ubiquitous and no one will ever know its exact origin. Mystery is as beautiful as a slice of pink ham.

Were I a betting woman, and I am, for tiny bits of currency, my money would be, and is, on Tampa. Bet ya a nickel. Tampa is big though and pinpointing seems impossible.

The following are Cuban sandwich rantings, ravings, hurrahings and revelings. No answers and plenty of questions.

“Miami was not even spit in the eye when Tampa was doing business with Havana,” Manteiga said. I believe it. Read and chose your conclusions here.

Meanwhile, if you are eating in Tampa and reaching for roots, the Cuban sandwich is the linchpin.

We sat at the Manteiga family’s private table, on ornately carved wooden chairs, in a corner of La Tropicana Cafe, which for decades has been a gathering place on Seventh Avenue for Ybor City’s immigrant community. Over a lunch of Spanish bean soup, Cuban sandwiches and deviled crab (a dish created by striking cigar factory workers in the 1920s), we chatted a bit about Tampa foodways and its ultimate fusion dish, crab chilau — blue-crab meat in a spicy enchilada sauce, often served over spaghetti — which perfectly represents Ybor City’s cultural mix. But mostly we talked history. More here.

Recently I had the good fortune to visit the Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City, Florida. The Columbia is legendary and I wanted to see what the fuss was all about – a venture into another world, through a rabbit hole or trick door indeed.

Also, I wanted to eat a Cubano in the city that claims to be its originator. One of the cities, I should say.

Talk of the Cubano elicits heated debate from all camps – I have witnessed debates, and endless rabbit holes. The bread alone is google-maps-worthy. More on that later.

Place of origin, salami or no salami, who bakes the proper bread, butter before pressing or not, exact ham, how manypic and…did I mention place of origin?

I’ve been down this tunnel before and it’s no less twisty this time. Posts on Cubanos here and here and here and here and here, the first from ten years ago at the birth of The Lunch Encounter. Nevertheless, I am taking a stab at parsing the particulars, plain and simple. Here we go!

In the mid-1800s, the Cuban tobacco industry emerged in Florida, where it first emerged in Key West. Later, tobacco moved north to Tampa, with thousands relocating to Ybor City — a historic neighborhood founded by cigar manufacturers with Cuban, Spanish, and Italian descent. Because of the influx of immigrants who mainly worked in factories, a quick, affordable lunch was yearned for. This marked the rise of the Cuban sandwich.

“Above all, you need a moist palmetto leaf on top of the dough before it’s baked,” says David Leon of La Segunda Central Bakery, the largest producer of Cuban bread in Tampa. “The dough rises and wraps around the leaf, giving the bread flavor.”

Family-owned La Segunda Central Bakery, which has been around for more than 100 years, chops nearly 60,000 leaves by hand each day, making about 18,000 loaves which are used in Tampa and shipped across the country, including Miami. “Ninety percent of the work is done by hand,” says Leon. “It’s a very old-school process. Using the leaf is what creates those peaks and valleys that Cuban bread is known for.”

After the bread is made, the ingredients are placed inside. The roast pork, says Astorquiza, must be marinated in mojo, which blends spices like bitter orange, oregano, cumin, garlic, onion, vinegar, and salt. The best way to do it, he says, is to marinate the pork overnight. The cheese must be Swiss, and if salami is used, it should be Genoa. If you’re extremely particular, make sure to use exactly three pickles. And, whatever you do, only use sweet cured ham (or something similar to it) because it’s crucial to not overpower the other ingredients’ flavors. Don’t forget mustard… and sometimes butter depending on where you’re eating.

Bread – crunchy on the outside, moist on the inside, wider and flatter than a baguette, not nearly as hard a crust, the bread at Versailles in Miami has a little lard in its recipe and is “basically a pan de agua” – Puerto Rican water bread

Ham – mojo marinated, “sweet ham”

Pickles – dills sliced thinly lengthwise

Cheese – imported Swiss – why imported?

Salami – Genoa, peppercorn-studded preferred (Columbia Restaurant)

Butter – butter the outside of the bread generously before pressing

The Columbia Restaurant’s recipe here. It does include salami and bread from La Segunda Central Bakery. The recipe headnote includes mention of a “smashed Cuban”, which is what you might expect, a heavily pressed sandwich.

Roast Cuban Pork:
1 each Fresh Pork shoulder (about 5 lbs.)
1 cup Sour Orange Juice (if not available, ½ cup lime juice and ½ cup orange juice)
8 each Large garlic cloves
2 tsp dried oregano leaves
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
4 each bay leaves

Next time I am in Tampa I want to try La Teresita, but that will have to be after another visit to La Columbia. The place is huge, man, and I want to trip up and down every staircase, gaze into each mirror, wish on the individual tiles.

UPDATE! I have been to the Columbia again and to Segundo Bakery. So exciting! Posts to come. PTK. Hurrah! Hooray! Booyah!
