RJ’s American Grille: A Restaurant Review


Full disclosure: This is not the first time I’ve been to RJ’s. I haven’t been in a while, but this review is based on my most recent visit – and their recent changes. Atmosphere – 4 out of 5 I love that RJ’s isn’t a chain restaurant, and that the decor is all Detroit-based. I’m …

Since I’m now a home improvement store garden employee, I’ve been seriously considering redoing my front yard, so I thought I share some of my ideas first before actually getting into it. This is the front of my house: As you can see, it’s pretty trashed. We have a lot of spots where the grass …

Wilton Course 2: Final Cake

It’s been a while since I last posted a Wilton class cake! This one was probably the easiest cake I’ve ever made, although I’m not sure how well it cuts or how easy it is to eat considering all of those royal icing flowers! I seriously love how this one turned out, though, and I’d …

Fashion Star: Episode 7

Kara Larick’s suit was baggy. It looked like it was 3 sizes too big on all of the models. And long. I was betting someone was going to buy it – most likely Saks. And after a ridiculously long wait, they of course paid $100,000 for it. Only problem is that no one else wants …

Vegas Baby! Miracle Mile Shops and The Walk Back

After leaving Paris at around 6, we walked over to the Miracle Mile shops. The designer shops were getting a bit old at this point, considering I couldn’t buy anything (except an overpriced chai at Starbucks with my gift cards) but of course I had to take the gratuitous ceiling shot. Hundreds of crystals hung …

Rose Cake

I was commissioned to do a cake for my mom today. Mostly, she wanted to take it to work and peddle my wares, but she’s also using it as a thank you gift to the union at work. She told me I could do whatever I wanted, so I did a little searching on pinterest and Google …

Vegas Baby! The Bellagio and Paris

Our next stop in Vegas was the Bellagio. On our way in was a corridor of shops with a beautiful glass ceiling that I fell in love with. My brother’s girlfriend spotted these bags and pointed out how she thought I’d like them. She really had no idea how amazing I thought they were. I …

Vegas Baby! The Mirage and Caesar’s Palace

Well, this isn’t what you were expecting on a Thursday, was it? I got tired of sharing pictures of icing flowers and not cakes. There’s only so many things you can really say about the same flowers. BUT there will be two cakes next week, so you’re not missing out on anything! I shared a …

Fashion Star: Episode 6

I wasn’t able to watch last night’s episode because of work, so all I have for you is the highlights of the show. Saks made one purchase last night, a chiffon dress from Kara Laricks. This was a very girly surprise from her, and I’m a little impressed, though the shaping doesn’t look the best to …

Vegas Baby! New York New York, MGM Grand, and Harrah’s

On my second day in Las Vegas, we discovered the tram from the Luxor to the Excalibur, then walked over to the MGM. The fastest way from the Excalibur to MGM is around New York, New York, which has some of the prettiest sights in the city, I think. It’s a small scale replica of …
