No one ever believes me when I tell them I'm a real live Florida native. Yep, some of us aren't snowbirds!
Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE to cook! My family is Cuban and Sicilian, so Latin and Italian foods are some of my favorites, but I love to try new recipes and dishes as often as I can... Got a recipe you think I should try? Send it to me!
Some of my other interests are baseball (Go Rays!), wine, eating (hey, it goes with the cooking!), music, travel, and Boston, my cat. I also LOVE zombie shows--The Walking Dead on AMC is one of my favorites, and I'm also into Breaking Bad, HGTV, The Food Network, and The Travel Channel.
There's a summer camp in Largo that's making national headlines: it's a "Hunger Games"-themed camp for kids aged 10-14. In the games, competitors must get through various physical and mental obstacles, in a capture-the-flag style event. Similar to flag football, if you make it to the end with your flags still in place, you're a winner, and if you run out of flags, you're eliminated from the competition.
Unlike the Hunger Games books and movies, there is no fight to the death (duh!) and fighting among campers is prohibited, but some parents think this is promoting violence among the kids. I think it's a great idea! It gets kids outside and moving, and makes them think on their feet if they want to win.
Parents, would you let your child go to a "Hunger Games" camp?
