    Author:  sundialmgr   |  Date:  November 15th, 2013

    With Thanksgiving less than two weeks away, I thought it would be a good time to share some tips, tricks and resources that I have found to be helpful over the years.

  • Planning for the Holidays

    Author:  sundialmgr   |  Date:  September 13th, 2013

    I was watching the Today Show Wednesday and one of the topics of conversation was the K-Mart Holiday Ad that just aired. Apparently it first ran earlier this week, a full 106 days before Christmas! Despite the supposedly premature timing of the ad, it did one thing right: it made me start thinking about what my family will be doing this holiday season.

  • An Easy Way to Make the Most of your Fresh Fish

    Author:  sundialmgr   |  Date:  August 23rd, 2013

    Talking about fishing charters in my last post had me craving fish all week! I completely lucked out when a friend called and told me her husband had just come back from a fishing trip and brought home way too much Grouper.

It does not have an overtly ‘fishy” flavor and thus lends itself to a variety of seasoning styles based on the preference of the chef and diners. Here is a simple, kid friendly recipe that is great for lunches, parties or even Labor Day!

    Today is Culinarian’s Day, a silly holiday all about celebrating anyone and everyone who cooks! In honor of this, I thought it would be only appropriate to pay tribute to someone who really knows his way around a kitchen: Sundial Beach Resort & Spa Executive Chef, Patrick Fitz.

    It’s Sanibel Summerfest time at Sundial Beach Resort & Spa and to help celebrate the season, Sundial has recruited local favorite Danny Morgan and his band to provide live entertainment every Friday, launched TWO new Happy Hours back to back and just announced a contest where you can win a free weekend for two at the resort!

  • Gluten: What is it? Where is it? Should I avoid it? What do I eat instead?

    Author:  sundialmgr   |  Date:  May 1st, 2013

    The World of Gluten can be really overwhelming. If you don't have Celiac Disease or a gluten intolerance, you do not need to eliminate gluten entirely from your diet. However, cutting gluten from the areas of your diet where it does not need to be and making simple swaps will lead you to feeling and being healthier. Here's my cheat sheet for getting to know what's-what with this wheat protein.
