The last thing I want, is to be sick from eating gluten while… Read More

BC Bistro & Cava – Ensenada – Restaurant Review

I love a girls getaway. Even more fun is a mother-daughter getaway. It’s been a while since my mom, aka Penny Williams and I had a fun road trip or a weekend away together. Even better, this long weekend was in Baja California and was centered around wine tasting, food and spa treatments. I’d say that is the recipe for a relaxing and satisfying trip!
