We've been talking a lot lately about the exciting growth in the downtown St Pete area, and the many great new developments on their way in the coming months. This already booming waterside city is overflowing with activity as it is...and to add to the excitement, the international business process outsourcing company, iQor, is relocating its headquarters from New York City to the One Progress Plaza in downtown St. Petersburg, Florida. This is a large step in the right direction for the continued growth and advancement of the downtown area! For those of you not familiar with iQor and what it does, iQor provides business process outsourcing and product support services on a global scale, sort of like a remote administrative assistance/customer service company that handles the backend ope...

St Petersburg Florida's International Folk Festival is running today, November 1 & tomorrow, November 2, 2014. This is the 40th annual SPIFFS and there are 40 countries being represented there this year. We got there just a little after the 10 am opening and made the rounds, checking out all of the various foods that each country had to offer before making any decisions. The eggrolls from Laos were excellent, as there the egg rolls from Thailand. Naturally, Ron tried one of the Indian dishes and I had some perogie from the Ukraine. There were dancers from Thailand, Taiwan, Scottland, Germany and many other nations on the two separate stages. We brought home both poppy seed cake and nut cake rolls from the Ukrainian booth and it was delicious - just like my grandmother and mother used to...

Last week I had the BEST sugar free, gluten free vegan chocolate pie but I have NO idea how to make it! While I did find out that the crust is made from crushed nuts and dates and I have searched the internet to find this wonderful dessert, I guess I am going to have to return to Leafy Greens Cafe in St Petersburg Florida if I want to have it again. This was without a doubt, the best dessert I have EVER had!  Any ideas out there on how to make it?

Leafy Greens Cafe is located at 1626 Central Avenue in St Petersburg Florida. I had the opportunity to have lunch there this past week and I will indeed be back! Leafy Greens Cafe offers vegan, raw, gluten free and all of their food is wonderful! I had their 'Tacos'. The taco consists of a large romaine leaf that is spread with a wonderful cashew hummus and then topped with guacamole and walnut, along with shredded red and green cabbage, red bell peppers, carrots, cubes of green tomato and red onions. This is topped off with a chipolte cashew dressing that is absolutely amazing! My friend Natalie had their Leafy Greens Salad which consisted of mixed greens, grape tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, sweet baby peppers, raw soaked almonds, avocado and sprouts. This wonderful salad was topped w...

La V Vietnamese Fusion Restaurant is located at 441 Central Avenue in downtown St Petersburg Florida. This was my destination for lunch today! I had never been to La V Vietnamese Fusion before but my close friend Natalie has been there several times, so this was a special treat. I had the La V Rolls with peanut sauce and the Da Nang Noodle Soup. Both the rolls and the noodles in the soup are made with rice. From the photos, you can see that this was a hearty meal, full of veggies as well as pork and shrimp. Between this and the Bopa Tea with Taro Fruit, there was no room for anything else! If you are looking for a great restaurant to enjoy something out of the ordinary, check out La V Vietnamese Fusion Restaurant in downtown St Petersburg Florida and while you are there, try a Bopa Tea!

Picasso Is Coming To The Dali - St. Petersburg, FL. Picasso and Dali met in 1926, Dali was 23 years younger than Picasso and in his early twenties. Dali's works were influenced by Picasso's style at the time. They were not close but did remain friends; both had huge egos and were highly competitive. Picasso at the Dali will open November 8, 2014 till Feb. 16, 2015. This will be the only American exhibition. Then it will move on to the Museo Picasso in Barcelona, Spain. Both were born in Spain, although they spent most of their artistic lives in Paris.   The exhibition will pair and compare works from both Picasso and Dali. You can read a comparative essay on both men here.   The Dali Museum is located at 1 Dali Blvd, St. Petersburg, FL. (727) 823-3767. Photo courtesy of Dali Museum   No...
