Reflecting – 6/16/11

It’s been a few months now with these blogs, and I think now it’s a good time to reflect.

When I started LittleTreats, it was something that began as a second try to get out there again and write about what I was passionate for: food and life. Sure, it still remains the great foundation for any writing of any sort, but it actually took me a little while since then to realize there needed to be more meaning for me than that.

Thus came the next two: Caro’s RECIPES & Each Time. One documenting how one could make food, and one devoted to my love of the arts. Both of them pretty much captivated by the need to educate. As I consider myself both an educator and an artist, in a way I felt that this truly what I was more passionate about the need to help people learn… and here’s why.

Just as we need to eat? we need creativity. We NEED an outlet for whatever ideas may come about, and we NEED to know how to keep our eyes open to what’s around us.

And as I love teaching, I will definitely try to do my part to continue on with that l’il mission statement. These two somehow, I feel, have become two of the things we’re losing touch with in our ultimate education for life. We depend much on what we’ve learned from school, but always saying we need more, more, more … I’ve come to determine that where schools really can only do so much, in the end it’s up to us to keep that fire going. We’re a very culturally-rich nation, America. But what everyone else seems to have a hold on us is their values outside of their school life.

I’ve come to realize that the need to feed your senses needs to just be one constant walking ground. Just as the arts are important, so is the need to educate folks about food. In the efforts made to better our health in this lifetime, we need to take the steps to be willing to explore, and just be in the know.

That said, I don’t think I’ll lack the inspiration to keep writing. πŸ™‚

Many, many thanks and hoping for the best yet to come ~~ Caro

Each Time: The Vegas Edition

As I said before, we really, really had a great time this time around.

And it’s definitely in huge part due in part to the shows we splurged onΒ  πŸ˜‰

Cirque Du Soleil’s Zumanity, KA, and of course, The Beatles’ LOVE, with the Jabbawockeez MUS.I.C. show as well. Check them out @ Each Time with Caro.

Back In Business & Ain’t It Grand …

ANNNNNNNNND …. we’re back.

Well, actually I was back a while ago but there was much much much to write about (and muchmuchmuch to do otherwise)

but as how was the trip to Vegas? In a word: great.

Simply put, it was a third trip out there, however this time around I can honestly say we definitely got the most out of our time there and amazingly enough, there were so many familiar faces to enjoy it with! (and one I hadn’t seen in 16 years, wutta reunion!) Much food eaten, much laying back, and many more shows seen than before and in glorious West Coast sunshine. Time was definitely well-spent.

I definitely had some longing looks at the Red Rock Mountains from wherever we were, but next time, they will be climbed once again!

In the meantime, STAY TUNED! because there will be tons of food blogging on Caro’s Recipes of all the food that I insisted to follow me back home…

… and more all about the shows we got to see on the Each Time blog!

Thanks for the great time, Vegas. πŸ˜‰

Stay Tuned !!!!

Hi Everyone!!!! (whatever wonderful reader you might be. πŸ™‚ )

Yes, I absolutely confess to being terrible about keeping updated, but with good reason!

It’s been a busy, busy time, but a good portion of the day has been keeping up with this and with 2 upcoming happenings that will hopefully help your senses feel faboosh, the best way I know how to.

Starting next week … Little Treats and Caro’s Recipes will be giving the full-star treatment to BBQ Lovers everywhere in aweek I am devoting to Spring’s Breakaway!!! Yes, her desperate attempts to shine are still being foiled by the Winter ice queen who just won’t quit! So we’re going to force her to stay strong and bring in the BBQ recipes. (be forewarned, my beloved vegans and vegetarians. There will be much meat involved in this final love letter/ urging peace treaty with Winter/ Spring’s housewarming fiesta galore).Β  There will be thrills, chills, cooking to fill. Keep up and be armed with a glass, plate, and fork, because I promise you a recipe for my very first BBQ Pulled Pork!!! With fabulous poise and prose, and I promise to keep ya on your toes by following your nose!

(yes, cheesetastic.. but you get the idea)

AND also, starting next week … I will be finally launching BLOG NUMBER 3!!!! in conjunction with Little Treats, entitled Each Time. Devoted entirely, and completely, to the loves in my life above all else: the Arts πŸ™‚

My ultimate delight to help bring my best foot forward in shining much-deserved light on Art, Dance, Music, Theater, and much, much, much, much, much, much more. I can’t stress just how important exploring into this territory is for everyone, and I am more than excited to get this started!!!!!

It’s going to be a great time. Stay tuned, and hope to see you again in a few days!!
