WIN! Creamistry Liquid Nitrogen Ice-Cream! | @CreamistryInc #BelmontShores #Giveaway

Have you heard of the latest ice-cream craze?  Imagine fresh made, icicle free, creamy ice-cream that can be made to order in just 2 minutes, in front of you!  At Creamistry, you get just that.

What makes Creamistry different than other ice-cream shops?  Liquid Nitrogen.
This week were invited to try this anomaly for ourselves at Creamistry's newest location in Belmont Shores.

When the specially trained "Creamologists" inject liquid nitrogen into the mixing bowl, combining it with the ice cream mix, the liquid nitrogen quickly evaporates into a big cloud of smoke. Within seconds, the liquid nitrogen has vanished and you're left with the freshest, creamiest, most indulgent ice cream.

ARCHERY OUTPOST: Great Indoor Archery Range | @ArcheryOutpost #LosAlamitos

With the Hunger Games movies so popular, Archery has gained momentum in popularity with the next generation.  

I have loved the archery sport since I was a child and finally took re-curved bow lessons in college but as life often does, I hadn't shot an arrow in 15 years.  My husband hunts and started looking into hunting using a compound bow.  Soon our children wanted to learn.  

As I watched my family having a great time at our local outdoor archery range at El Dorado Park, I started to get the itch.  For Christmas I received my first compound bow and it took awhile to get it adjusted properly to my arm length and strength. 

Since archers are on their own at El Dorado Park unless you take a class, I looked elsewhere.  

I discovered the Archery Outpost only 10 minutes from my house and less than 5 minutes from El Dorado Park in Los Alamitos.

The Archery Outpost is an indoor range as opposed to the outdoor El Dorado Park range.  This was great as I was able to practice in all weather.

Mimi's Cafe's New Frites Menu | @Mimis_cafe #MimisCafeFritesGrill #French

This is a post written by Mary Tran for Mimi's Cafe. All opinions are our own.

On Thursday, October 16th, we attended a menu sampling of Mimi's Cafe's new Frites Grill Menu. Featuring five new classic meat and potato combinations, the menu includes Steak Frites, Roasted Chicken & Frites, Grilled Chicken & Frites, Grilled Atlantic Salmon & Frites, and Meyer Lemon Mussels & Frites

It took Mimi’s culinary team more than two months in France to perfect the frites recipe. They sampled authentic French frites and talked to local chefs in brasseries, bistros, and Michelin-starred restaurants in Paris, Brittany, and Normandy. The frites are hand-cut, fried-to-order, never frozen, and made with real Russet potatoes.

Earth To Echo DVD/Blu-Ray Giveaway! | @FHEInsiders #EchoInsiders #Spon

Box Art

Earth to Echo

Earth to Echo is a movie that slipped under my radar this year at the theaters and now that it is out on DVD/Blu-Ray, I plan to check it out ASAP!  My kids love space and this movie seems right up their alley!

Earth to Echo is a tale told through the eyes of Tuck, Munch and Alex, a trio of pals who make an out-of-this-world discovery. The best friends venture out of their neighborhood to find the true meaning of friendship. After receiving signals on their phones, they meet Echo, a small, but amazingly energetic, alien trying to make his way back to his home planet. As they race to help their new friend, the boys will discover that little Echo has touched their hearts in unexpected ways and changed their lives forever.
