Looking for Great Recipes Healthy, Tasty or Healthy AND Tasty?

Great Recipes healthy vs tastyGreat Recipes Needed for Family Dinners

Since adopting a tradition of Sunday family dinners I need to try new great recipes.  What the heck – I’ve got live guinea pigs to experiment on …

I’m still not sure if I should be looking for great recipes that are healthy, or should just focus on making great recipes that are tasty.  I’m on a clean eating live-it most of the time, but I’m ok with an occasional ‘cheat meal’.  I’d prefer to serve people (especially family and friends) healthy food, but also want to make sure that it is something that they will eat and enjoy.

One ‘must have’ for this recipe is that it must be something that a picky 11 year old will eat ….  I’m thinking I could be safe this week with macaroni and cheese with bacon – but would love to hear your suggestions.

Kindly send me your GREAT recipes!  You may just get an invite to a future family dinner …

BTW – please subscribe to Joe Tesla Kennedy on YouTube.  I am trying to win a subscriber challenge with Stacia and Makaya.

No Smoking Bellevue: If You Are Caught Smoking, You Better Be On Fire

I really hate inconsiderate cigarette smokers. Maybe because both my parents smoked more than a pack a day when I was a kid (and are suffering from health problems as a result). Maybe because I got in inhale A LOT of their second hand smoke (this was before they came up with a name for it). It’s probably just because cigarette smoke smells HORRIBLE!

Cigarette smoke gives me a headache and makes me feel like crap. I hate the way cigarette smoke stinks. If smokers only knew …

At any rate this video is about my plan next time someone comes and smokes a cigarette under my balcony at The Ridge in Bellevue. Watch the No Smoking Bellevuevideo to see my plan and then let me know what YOU would do.  1) If you were a smoker who got squirted with water and 2) If you had to constantly smell the smoke from somebody else’s butts.

Bellevue Hotel Management Company Pineapple Hospitality Buys San Diego Hotel Z

Bellevue Hotel Co Pineapple HospitalityBellevue Hotel Management Company Buys 2nd CA Hotel Property.

Bellevue hotel management company Pineapple Hospitality Company, has announced their entrance into the San Diego hotel market.

Pineapple Hospitality Company has purchased a hotel property on 6th Avenue, in the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter.  The property is currently in the midst of conversion. The hotel will open under the name Hotel Z.  The hotel is now taking reservations for stays beginning August 1.  San Diego is absolutely beautiful all year round. August and September usually have the warmest weather and most comfortable water temperature at the beaches.

Hotel Z is Pineapple Hospitality’s second property in California. The Bellevue Hotel Management Company’s first property in CA is The Hotel California in San Francisco, they own and operate four hotels in Seattle and one in Portland, OR. “We chose San Diego because it complements our core values in that we offer properties in high-demand locations,” said President Michelle Foreman Barnet. “All six of our properties are in strong markets, and this addition gives our Pineapple guests good coverage of the West Coast from the Pacific Northwest to Southern California.  We are delighted to offer our Pineapple hospitality in San Diego, and we know our guests will be excited by the amazing location.”

Hotel Z will open after a total redesign of the original property.  Upon opening, guests will enjoy the same amazing Pineapple Hospitality service and amenities as offered in other hotels.  This includes complimentary wireless internet and free bike check-outs, dog-friendly accommodations and a daily cupcake and coffee reception.

“We are so excited to have entered this market,” stated Barnet. “The location between Island and Market on 6th Avenue is superb.” The four-story, 96-room property is located in the heart of San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter, is three blocks from Petco Park and four blocks from the San Diego Convention Center.

For more information about Hotel Z or to make reservations, visit www.HotelZSanDiego.com. They can also be found on Facebook and Twitter.

About Pineapple Hospitality
Each Pineapple Hotel is owned and operated by Pineapple Hospitality Company, a Bellevue hotel management company. For centuries the pineapple has been a symbol of hospitality all over the world; Pineapple Hospitality Company strives to continue that tradition in each of its hotel locations. Pieces of the Pineapple include Hotel FIVE in downtown Seattle, The Maxwell Hotel in Queen Anne, Watertown Hotel and University Inn, both in the University District, Hotel Rose in downtown Portland, OR.; and The Hotel California in San Francisco, CA. For more information about Pineapple Hospitality Company, including reservations at any of its properties, visit www.StayPineapple.com or call 866-866-7977. Pineapple Hospitality can also be found on Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

Publisher’s Note:  We would love to review all of these properties – and hope that Pineapple will soon be able to add a Bellevue Hotel to their portfolio.  I don’t think there is currently a Bellevue Hotel that is not super successful and sold out much of the year.
