Last week was National Tequila Day. Did you know Americans drink 50 million liters of tequila annually? This is actually more tequila than consumed in Mexico! This is according to the Today Show.
Of course tequila is good when included in a refreshing beverage, but it can also be used as an ingredient when cooking spectacular recipes. Here is a recipe for “Spicy Tequila Chicken”. I am going to try this one myself.
Spicy Tequila Chicken
Cut 6 chicken breasts into long strips.
1/2 cup of clear tequila
Juice from 6 limes
1 generous tablespoon of chili powder
2 jalapeno peppers finely chopped
1 tablespoon of minced garlic
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of black pepper
Combine chicken breasts and marinade.
Let ingredients sit for at least one hour in refrigerator.
I recently had the opportunity to travel to Cuba on a “People to People” trip.
With the recent relaxation of regulations to obtain required licenses for travel to Cuba, the island nation has become more available to eager travelers from the United States. On our trip, we visited several different regions of the country, starting in Trinidad, then on to Cienfuegos (both in central Cuba). We also visited Havana and Old Havana (both in western Cuba).
It was an unforgettable experience and I can’t wait to share my blogs with you, including travel tips and highlights of each region.
First off, my overall impressions and favorite experiences in Cuba.
Iberostar Paraiso Del Mar provided a picture perfect backdrop. Palm trees, crystal blue water, white sandy beaches and the beauty of Mexico shined throughout the shoot.
When not filming, the cheerleaders also participated in games and events with the resort guests. We can’t wait to see the completed calendar. Meanwhile, here are some sneak peaks of the shoot and some behind the scenes photos.
OK parents…it’s final exam time…then field day…then IT is coming…the inevitable last day of school! I am actually looking forward to it! I’m planning our summer fun, including our summer family vacation!
Like many, I have narrowed down a week and am deciding on location. Last year we went on a great vacation to Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa with friends and family. We were going for a little bit longer of a stay, so we decided to venture down further in the Riviera Maya corridor to Tulum.
I stayed at Dreams Tulum many years ago, when it first opened, and wow — it’s great and perfect for groups and families!
Dreams Tulum does not require wristbands, dining reservations or towel cards, like other AMResorts. I’ve mentioned before how that makes life easier when travelling with a family. You don’t have to be on a dining schedule or worry about losing extra items.
Here are some of my favorite things about the resort:

Apple Vacations and Iberostar Hotels & Resorts were happy to participate in The Philadelphia Eagles Women’s Academy this past weekend.
For the event, 200 ladies, including some of our top travel agent partners, had a fun day of exclusive behind-the-scenes tours, training sessions, lunch and even some time on the field. Everyone can punt, pass and run a little bit better after instruction from current Eagles DeMeco Ryans and Brent Celek, along with alumni, Ike Reese and Jon Runyan.
