In 1982 an Ohio innovator named Harold moved out to Inglewood, CA to start his dream of owning and placing a restaurant in the Los Angeles community. Having raving reviews of the home-style delicious breakfast menu, the now established Serving Spoon has never let the community down, making every spoonful a blissful moment, or as they say: Love at first bite.
Years later Harold retired in 2004 leaving the restaurant to his daughter Angela and son in law Jerry.
“We usually make all of our business decisions together but this decision was made all by my husband. I had been working here since I was 16, so my interest wasn’t as strong as my husbands to purchase and take it over but looking back now, I wouldn’t change it for the world”.
Watching the 2012 Billboard Awards I was moved throughout the show by performances by Chris Brown, Usher and Justin Beiber with their ability to perform but what caught my attention was a young Vietnamese-born man named Jean Sok. with so much passion and determination in his face a one legged break-dancer stole the show during Cee Lo Green’s performance with reunited Goodie Mob. The directors proved to the TV viewers just exactly whose show it really was.
He is a member of the French break-dance crew named Bboy Hourth. Another fun fact is he is touring in the Cirque de Soleil road show that’s officially been coined as “Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour.” im interested myself to check that out!

Proceeds from the line will benefit Brown’s ‘Symphonic Love’ youth foundation.
The figurines are a combination of astronaut fun type skull heads with gold grillz and star glasses, a spunky new vision of his attitude being out of this world and just plain fun!

Had to snag a picture of Obama, it’s not everyday you see your president in a toy store!
My faaavorite food is Italian food and with Italian food the staple plate is *drum-roll* Spaghetti! This plate can be made one million ways but this time I tried to keep it simple while spicing it up with some do-it-yourself homemade meatballs.
1lb of what ever meat you choose (I chose ground Angus Beef)
1/2 link of Polish Kielbasa
1 yellow onion
1 green bell pepper
Tablespoon Garlic (fresh or paste)
Teaspoon salt & pepper (each)
Teaspoon crushed peppers
2 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
1 egg white
2 toasted and crumbled slices of sourdough bread
Teaspoon crushed oregano
1 can of tomato sauce
Fresh basil leaves
1 jar of spaghetti sauce (of your choice)
1 bag shredded mozzarella cheese.
Step 1: preheat the oven to 400 degrees. While the oven is heating, mince the onions and bell peppers and put them in a large mixing bowl with all italicized ingredients. Mix well. Let sit and chop Polish Kielbasa into 1/4 inch circular/ oval rounds.
Step 2: In a small to medium sized baking pan (at least 2-3 inches deep) spread all tomato sauce and fresh basil leaves evenly. Scooping small handfuls of meat make golf size meat balls molded by hand and Kielbasa, place pan into oven and let bake for 20-25min.
Step 3: While meatballs and sauce are baking use a tall pot to bring water with a few drops of olive oil so that the noodles wont stick together once boiled and strained of water. After water comes to a boil, drop the spaghetti inside. Cook 7-10min.
Step 4: Checking on the meat, sprinkle a generous amount of mozzarella cheese to the top of each meatball (I love cheese so I add more) place BACK into the oven, except this time, put it on broil so you can get a browning color with the cheese, sauce, and meat.
Step 5: Grab the nearest plate and a glass of your favoirte wine or dinner salad and enjoy, back meat-a-ballz-a!
A lovely Los Angeles lady by the name of Keisha had a hair day, and boy did it turn out HOT! With spring coming to a close and summer in the forefront, living live in living color is the thing to do!
“I’ve been dying my hair blonde for the longest and needed a touch up on my brown roots. I was at a photo shoot for my friends clothing line when I asked the hair stylist if my hair could get lighter. She said certainly, with the exception that she doesn’t really like to do normal colors, by being confused she showed me her Instagram photos and I immediately fell in love!”
Keisha stated she picked the colors because they reminder her of a California sunset: “We spent 10 hours changing my hair options on the day of the appointment but since I was so anxious I couldn’t wait, it was like I was a little kid waiting to go to Disneyland”!
The process took many tedious steps with color bowls, foils, and brushes but you cannot be upset with this beautiful outcome!!
“Many people say my hair reminds them of a mermaid and i love it! The cool thing about it is the colors will eventually start to fade, making the hues more pastel so it will be like a whole new style. Something new and fun. I’m definitely looking forward to changing the colors as they fade away completely”
