Grouper, Key Lime Pie & Tennis Success

Hi! Over the weekend I had the most delicious dinner at Acquario with some of Demi's tennis friends and their parents! I tried Chef Phil's Special that night, which was pan flashed grouper with ginger tomato jam and sweet plantain coconut risotto. It was incredible! Then, for dessert, I tried the Key Lime Pie, a South Florida staple. Ours though, at least in my opinion, is the best in the world! On a totally separate subject, Demi placed 4th in the main draw of ...

Catching up with old friends over food

Hi! I got to visit with some old friends last weekend. They were staying at Lago Mar for their high school reunion.

We had the Rock Shrimp Mac and Cheese and the Calamari, which is served with tomato sauce, lemon-lime cilantro ...

Cirque Du Soleil’s Quidam – Mesmerizing

Thursday night I accepted an amazing invitation from a very generous family for me and the kids to sit in a skybox and watch Cirque Du Soleil's Quidam at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, FL. It was absolutely one of the best nights ever. The show was beautiful and the kids, as well as adults, were mesmerized by the strength and flexibility of the performers! I love living in Fort Lauderdale and being able to see shows like Quidam! Deb

Another Great July 4th at Lago Mar

Hi! It was another great July 4th at Lago Mar. Last night was so much fun!

I took my kids over in our golf cart, which was very festive looking... and we had an awesome dinner at Acquario. Chef Phil really outdid himself last night with an incredible buffet. I heard lots of members and guests commenting ...

She has worked in The Spa, as well as down on the ...

Spa Day – TGIF

Hi! When I was in The Spa interviewing our new Spa Director, Eduardo Cuevas, I couldn't resist booking a massage for myself. I just wrapped up my massage and it was wonderful. Marge, who has been with us for 5 years, was my technician and she did the best deep tissue massage I have ever had! I can't rave enough about how amazing I feel after that massage. Marge used the Pure Fiji Coconut Oil on me, because it is my absolute ...

Menu Pick: Veg. Chimichurri Portabella Burger

Hi! I just came from lunch and I got to try out the new menu in the Palm Garden Room. I chose the Vegetarian Chimichurri Portabella Burger, a brand new dish added to the menu. OMG! It was so good and still very healthy! I loved the combination of the portabella with the squash, roasted red pepper, and avocado on the multi-grain ciabatta. Even though I am not a vegetarian, I am a big fan of having a variety meat-free ...
