Xbox One was built by gamers, for gamers. With the best exclusive titles (Halo, Sunset Overdrive), the biggest blockbusters (Assassin’s Creed and Call of Duty) the hottest sports franchises (Madden 15, FIFA 15, NBA 2K15) and top family titles (Fantasia: Music Evolved, Just Dance 15, Skylanders) Xbox One takes gaming to a whole new level.

In addition to being a great gaming console, Xbox one connects consumers unlike any other device.  Xbox One enables access to the latest TV shows and movies through your favorite apps.  With Xbox One all of your media is at your fingertips when you want it.

JBL_Holiday

JBL:

JBL Charge 2– Between the twin passive radiators for deep bass, the massive 6000mAh battery and the hands-free conference speakerphone the key benefit is the Bluetooth Social Mode which allows up to three different users to take their turns to play their own playlists on a single speaker.

JBL Flip 2– Aside from the dual performance-tuned JBL drivers and a built-in bass port, the key benefit of the JBL Flip 2 is the SoundClear echo and noise cancellation combined with the state-of the art microphone system to pick up calls on the speaker.

JBL Reflect Earbud headphones–  Sweat proof ergonomic design.  With a 5 hour rechargeable battery and a reach of about 40 feet, the JBL Reflect BT’s key benefit is the design of the ergonomic eartips along with the built-in magnets which keep your buds on standby without loose cables.

Gingerbread House Making Extravaganza

 

4 years ago my hubby and I decided we should start a new tradition of making gingerbread houses. We invited our dear friends Wright & Alice over to join in the fun. Needless to say our house didn’t remain standing, icing was everywhere and it was basically a disaster. A fun disaster nonetheless.

 

This failure made us not want to do it ever again. Until this year. Every year Wright & Alice have a holiday party. Our friends Patrick & Megan were there and we all started talking about our gingerbread house disaster but yet somehow we all decided to do it again. This time with homemade pizza and brownies.

 

Here is a video of our gingerbread house making progress and the final product. I made this video on my Sony Vaio (post on computer coming soon).

 

 

We had a blast this time around. I really think they’ve advanced the gingerbread houses tremendously since 4 years ago. We’ve decided to keep it a early tradition.

 

Ok so tell me, do you have a favorite? #1? #2? or #3?

Roasted Garlic Fettucene Alfredo Recipe

For my holiday gift to my dear friend Khurt Williams, I’ve decided to finally post my recipe for my Roasted Garlic Fettucene Alfredo. Really it’s a gift to all of you. The first time I made it for my hubby he said it was better than the alfredo he had in Italy. And he wasn’t just saying it. It truly is out of this world. If you make it, please drop me a line and let me know what you think.

 

What’s needed:

 

1 cup Grated Parmigiano Reggiano (Buy a block of it and grate it yourself)

1 lb. Fettucene

2 Heads of garlic

1 cup Heavy cream

Olive oil, salt & pepper

 

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Slice the tops off of the garlic heads. Place them on foil and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Wrap foil around the garlic and roast in the oven for 45 minutes. Let them cool and then squeeze the flesh out of the cloves and mash into a paste. Add the paste to a pot over medium heat with the heavy cream and whisk. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer until the contents reduces by 1.2. Boil your pasta. Add cheese to your pot with cream. Season with salt and pepper if needed. Drain your pasta. I like to throw the pasta directly into the sauce and mix together and let sit for a second so the pasts absorbs the flavor.

 

Last but not least…. dig in. Enjoy!
