I was looking for a special place for brunch to celebrate my best friend's birthday. Capriccio's in Resorts Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City was certainly the right spot.
The restaurant is high up above the boardwalk with views of the ocean in a big, beautiful, bright restaurant with exceptional service--we were treated like royalty.
The brunch is $44.99 per person and has everything you could imagine.
Shrimp cocktail bar, oysters, carving stations, unlimited mimosas, bloody mary's, omelettes, tons of breakfast items, pasta, seafood dishes, tuna ...

Local charity to hold 5K Run & Festival to raise money to assist cancer patients in community

My family attended last year. My husband did the 5k and daughter did the youth run. It's a great time raising money for a great cause. It sparked an interest ...
1) Walk the boards. When I was little, I loved going to the boardwalk in Atlantic City and Ocean City. In fact, my parents met in Atlantic City and my grandparents met dancing at the infamous Steel Pier in Atlantic City. So romantic! Now that I live in Marlboro, we head to Jenkinson's Boardwalk in Point Pleasant at least 2-3 times during the summer. Plus, starting in the end of June, Jenkinson's has a whole summer line-up of free family-friendly events such as Radio Disney concerts, movies after ...

~Since the late 1950′s on the Thursday just before the Memorial day, around 1200 soldiers of the 3d U.S. Infantry place small American flags at each of the more than 260,000 gravestones at Arlington National Cemetery. They then patrol 24 hours a day during the weekend to ensure that each flag remains standing. In 1951, the Boy Scouts ...
Memorial Day: A day when we pause to give thanks to the people who fought and lost their lives so that we can be free!
Kicking the long weekend off with a barbeque? While there’s certainly nothing wrong with enjoying a day off, it’s important to remember the origins of Memorial Day. Established on May 30, 1868 to honor the nation’s war dead, the holiday was originally called “Decoration Day” because people laid flowers on the graves of the fallen. No matter where you fall on the ...
Many of us will be heading out to Memorial Day Weekend festivities, so now's the time to get ready to handle summer's new food allergy challenges that our kids or even for ourselves.
Here are a few things to look out for:
Grilling: Grilled foods maybe one of the safest options for all food-allergic people because of their simplicity and lack of sauces, however, outdoor grills present a BIG cross-contact risk. Marinades may contain many types of allergens including nuts and the shared grill presents many risks for ...

This recipe is one of a fellow MK Publisher's (Kelley from Eastside, WA) husband's favorite pasta salads to make during the summer. It goes so well with anything you stick on the grill! We don't really have any measurements, we just add as much as we want, depending on the mood.

- Fresh Mozzarella (we like to use the small balls, bocconcini)
- Salami, cut into strips
- Sliced grape tomatoes
- Italian Dressing
- Pepper to taste
- Other foods that make this salad yummy are: green ...
Whip of a batch of these easy, healthy red, white and blue muffins with the kids for Memorial Day. Including whole wheat flour boosts the nutritional value and using frozen orange juice reduces the amount of refined sugar in the recipe.
1 1/2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2/3 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup cold butter, diced

Ok, it's officially BBQ season for most families. However, in our family, it is BBQ season all year long! My husband, Russell, is the biggest BBQ geek ever! He will BBQ in pouring rain, snowstorms, and tornadoes. Of course, he drags all the bad weather back into our house. But, in his defense, he does also bring in the MOST delicious cheeseburgers on the planet. I think our Weber BBQ is officially the 6th member of our family. He treats it like a baby--never in my life have I ...

Collage materials of your choice, here are a few ideas (photographs, pictures cut out of magazines, shapes cut out of ...
Step 1: Measure approximately 5-6 ounces of hair gel and mix in as much glitter as you want!
Step 2: Pour mixture into a clear food storage bag and get as much air out as possible and seal bag.
Make it kid friendly!
Does your kid LOVE to garden? Play in the dirt? How about learn new things? What about eating their veggies? Well if you said YES to at least one of those things, you might be looking at your next project and HOPEFULLY add "YES!" to eating their veggies!
Kids tend to be MUCH more interested in eating their veggies, or at least TRYING them, if they had a HAND in growing them, themselves!
We made a Gutter Garden on our fence this weekend. It was easy, QUICK and looks super ...
