Of course it is important to take vacations and enjoy leisurely activities too. But sometimes it can be tough to get back into a routine when you return and keeping productive can be a challenge. I have a few tips to stay focused:

10 Reasons To Try zpizza

IMG_7757
Today I want to share with you a fabulous eatery that started right here in Orange County in Laguna Beach. Laguna Beach is known for its fabulous art colony, and at zpizza, they have truly made an art of pizza. I recently was invited to preview the zpizza Pop-Up City Tour earlier this month.

zpizza began in 1986 and, due to its popularity of superior taste and committment to fresh and organic ingredients, is now nationwide. I have been a fan of zpizza for years. They have just kicked off a Pop-Up City Tour which offers an exclusive dinner and the chance to create your own zpizza.
If you haven’t tried zpizza I’m encouraging you to try it. Why? I’m listing my top 10 reasons why you need to check out zpizza.

My Top Ten Reasons You Need to Try zpizza

1) All zpizza menu items are all-natural and organic ingredients, including its fresh produce, award-winning skim mozzarella from grass-fed Wisconsin cows, certified organic tomato sauce, MSG-free pepperoni and 100 percent all-natural, non-GMO flour.

2) The pizza offers a wide variety of pizzas that are handcrafted, made-to-order, and available in gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options.

3) Their pizza is absolutely delicious! Deliciously fresh ingredients on a delicate crunchy crust! They offer a large selection of International varieties including, Greek, Napoli, province and Tuscan mushroom.
4) They also offer traditional standards such as cheese, pepperoni, veggie and ZBQ chicken. They also have a Take N Bake option which lets you bake it in your own oven! Online ordering is also available.

5) zpizza has been rated by Parents magazine as one of the top 10 Best Fast Casual Family Friendly restaurants
6) zpizza offers deals year-round to zTribe members you can receive information and discounts by signing up on the zpizza website.

7) They seriously make the best gluten-free pizza I have ever had. Their Pear and Gorgonzola gluten-free pizza amazing! They are also the largest pizza chain offering gluten-free pizza.
8) They have a cool story about how they got their name. zpizza’s name originated when Sid and his partner, Susie, were getting ready to open their first pizza eatery together in 1986 and called it “the pizza place.” Susie, however, was French and pronounced it “zee pizza place”. As the store opening date approached, the two still hadn’t decided on a name and decided to use the name they’d always used: “z pizza.” Over the years, the space has been dropped and the chef-inspired pizza chair has come to be known as “zpizza. How cute is that?

One of the many things I love about summer is summer cocktails. Especially ones made with the fresh fruits of summer. There is nothing like a frosty cocktail on a warm summer day or evening, especially if you on the beach or near water. I made these the other day. They are perfect for a barbeque or luau. I am sharing my easy pineapple daiquiri recipe today. I made this one with fresh pineapple, but you can also use canned or bottled pineapple juice to save time.

Dollar-Tree-disclosureSummer time is a great time for a party!  Did you know that you can host a great luau party for just a few dollars? I found some great items at Dollar Tree. I am sharing my tips on hosting and decorating a dollar luau party today. Wait to you see what I did with this stuff.

Luau Party On A Dime

First, I set up the table with a tablecloth and decorated the front with grass made from two grass skirts from Dollar Tree that I cut open, so the total cost of the grass trim was $2.

I bought two adult-sized skirts and attached them at one end. I used this to decorate the front of my table.

On the table were flowers made from tissue paper. The package is only one dollar at the Dollar Tree, and each sheet made four flowers – score! These flowers make great decorations and centerpieces all for pennies!
