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.
The most stressful major city to live in the U.S. is Tampa, according to a study conducted by Sperling's Best Places, a research firm specializing in livability rankings. The ingredients to a calmer, stress-free life may be determined by many variables including employment, commute time, mental health, cloudy days, etc. We were surprised to see that FIVE Florida cities/metro areas made the list!
Here is the Top 10 List of Most Stressful US Cities:
1. Tampa - St. Petersburg – Clearwater
2. Las Vegas – Paradise
3. Miami - Miami Beach - Kendall
5. Detroit - Livonia - Dearborn
6 Orlando - Kissimmee
7. Riverside - SanBerardino - Ontario
8. Sacramento - Arden - Arcade - Roseville
9. Seattle - Bellevue - Everett
10. West Palm Beach - Boca Raton - Boynton Beach
The Tampa metro area has actually been on the top 10 list for the last several years in a row. Agree or disagree?
