Walmart to Go Review

I was excited to try Walmart to Go since they delivered fresh groceries to your door. I’m super busy as it is so to avoid a trip out is such a time saver. Plus, I don’t live close to a Walmart so this is a great convenience.

Upon checking out the selection of groceries, I was pleasantly surprised to find that there is a good selection of health food items and gluten-free foods.

I don’t eat a lot of processed foods and when I do, I’m picky about them. I was extremely happy to find foods that were healthy for my family.

The driver called me to see if he could deliver my order earlier, which was awesome since I was waiting for it. The earlier, the better.

I Met Duff!


This past Sunday, I attended my 8th Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco’s Moscone Center. It was amazing and fun.

And while cruising the aisles, I saw this bald man from behind, wearing a bright red jersey. I thought to myself, “Is that Duff?”

When I got closer, I realized it was! If you don’t know, Duff Goldman is the star of the Food Network Show “Ace of Cakes”.

He and his team of talented artists build spectacular and sometimes gravity defying cakes for their clients at his bakery, Charm City Cakes, based in Continue reading
