Recipe: Fiery Party in Your Mouth Potato Chip Cookies

Making recipes prepared by loved ones in my past is a way I travel back in time and reconnect with cherished memories. One of my favorite sweet treats my Grandma Huber baked when I was a kid were Potato Chip Cookies. Ingredients are pretty simple yet the cookie is thick with a buttery, savory and simply sweet flavor and crunchy texture.

Laughing and Paddling at Manatee Park in Fort Myers, Fla.

That Time Former President Jimmy Carter Set Me Straight About Noah

Anxious for the Bible study lesson to begin, I sat in a pew fidgeting at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, Ga., sitting between a friend and a stranger. “Please remember, we’re here to worship God and not Jimmy Carter,” the pastor said.

Travel to the Dominican Republic: Whale Watching in Samaná Bay

There were about a dozen of us in an open-air boat, sitting in pairs, bobbing in silence on Samaná Bay with our eyes fixated on the horizon. I was craning my neck and holding my breath in anticipation to check off another experience from my bucket list, whale watching.

Travel to Virginia: Southern Charm and Hipster Vibe in Roanoke

Travel to New York City: Taking a Juicy Bite of the Star-Studded Big Apple with the TMZ Tour NYC

Traveling to New York? Hop aboard the red TMZ Tour NYC bus to take a juicy bite of the star-studded Big Apple.

Soaking up the glitz of pop-culture is one of my guilty vices and TMZ is my go-to source for a juicy fix. Watching the show, I often thought it would be fun to follow a TMZ crew as they scoped out Hollywood’s streets in search of today’s relevant celebrities.

New York City Hotel: Sleeping Paradise Found at the NYLO

leeping paradise found at the NYLO Hotel in New York City. As hard as I fought, my internal alarm clock woke me at 5:30 a.m. Peering through the slivers of my weary eyelids, I could tell it was still dark and definitely not time to begin my day. I didn’t need to be anywhere until 11 a.m. which meant hopping in a cab around 9:30 a.m.
