Filipino Dishes

Eat your heart out in the Philippines! With so many tasty Filipino dishes to choose from, it’s hard to narrow the list down to less than 10.  In fact, on our last trip to the Philippines, we compiled well over 100 photos of various foods and we definitely gained about 10 lbs (true story).  The thing is, you can step into any home in the Philippines and each host will…

Breakfast in Paris

April 22, 2016

  Breakfast in Paris Breakfast in Paris is much different than breakfast back home. Being half French, I’ve grown accustomed to my grandmother’s morning quiche and pastries, but there is something to be said about eating breakfasts in Paris.  First of all, you won’t find a Denny’s on street corners nor will you run into the infamous golden arches. What you will find are a mixture of Frugal and Fancy…

Strawberry Christmas Tree – Frugal Fancy Fit

December 6, 2015

A chocolate covered strawberry Christmas tree? Who can compete with that!? My sister won the most creative Christmas dish last year, hands down! I couldn’t keep my hands off the tree. In fact, we had to snap pics of it right away before everyone devoured it. It’s a really fun project to do with the family. While this is not a quick project by any means, it’s definitely worth…

The Anaheim Packing House

November 15, 2015

My husband and I have pushed off going to the Anaheim Packing House long enough. Two years ago, we took a trip to Vancouver Canada and walked through our very first packing house – filled with produce, meats, spices, seafood, pastries, nuts, food vendors and more! It was every food bloggers dream. I remember saying that I wished we had one in Orange County. Low and behold, one year…

Shake Shack with an Ocean View

  A Frugal & Fancy Hamburger Joint in Crystal Cove On Saturday my husband and I decided to eat at the Ruby’s shake shack in Crystal Cove for lunch. What makes this spot unique? From my perspective, the 180 degree ocean view and their Ahi Burgers! Sometimes it’s hard to find frugal/fancy and healthy in the same place but Ruby’s in Crystal Cove makes the cut. This tiny…

The Boathouse Collective in Costa Mesa

April 2, 2015

  This last weekend, we decided to pay a visit to the Boathouse Collective in Costa Mesa. After all, word was spreading fast about this place and we heard only good things. Once we arrived we were taken back by the uniqueness of it all. It offered a truly impressive one of a kind setting especially for Orange County. Let me explain. A Restaurant in an Industrial Park…
