Food Trend: Homemade Sodas!

A big trend going on right now in many restaurants are Homemade Sodas! There is just something about ordering a unique bubbly drink. Creative sodas made with fresh ingredients is definitely worth trying! What is great about this trend is how it can be carried over at home.  Combinations of Hibiscus Lime or Tamarind Peach give typical sodas a run for its money.  As it turns out "soda" is really a fancy term for flavored simple syrup with seltzer mixed in. So why not treat your taste buds to a carbonated drink that has a delicious surprise! Kids of all ages will enjoy. The combinations are endless! bashi enjoys getting creative with our homemade sodas.  Our Hibiscus Lime Soda is not only a treat to see with the beautiful edible hibiscus on top. It is in the words of Rachel Ray "Yumo"! Here is how you can make one of our homemade bashi sodas at home:

Panacea for the Body

I enjoyed another trip to the Terranea Spa to relax before surgery this week. What a feast for all the senses. I started the day with Hatha Yoga then took the Aquatic Conditioning class and finished with the Flexibar/Core class. I refueled with a delicious coffee/chocolate smoothie at Sea Beans. As I sat under the warming rays of the sun and looked out at the ocean, I was mesmerized by groups of pelicans winging overhead. I also spotted a small bright gold bird (perhaps a Yellow Warbler) flying over the pool. Every so often, a dragonfly would zip by. It is - without a doubt - the best place to spot frolicking seals and pods of dolphins. I even discovered a blue throated lizard winding its way around the native plants. Another beautiful day to remember and, by God's grace, I will return soon.

Thank you for another memorable stay!

First of all, I want to thank Joel at the reservation desk who was very accomodating and gave us a very nice surprise room upgrade to celebrate our anniversary.Very nice touch! I happen to mention that we got married at Terranea-Catalina Point- 2 years ago and we wanted to rekindle the memories. We can't imagine Terranea being more spectacular than it was 2 years ago-but it truly is, with the same impeccable service. We were very impressed with the anniversary treatment-dessert on the house (at every restaurant in the hotel!) free champagne. These simple touches made a huge difference in our impression of Terranea. My husband and I will make this an annual anniversary tradition! Thank you and kudos for a great staff and a welcome stay.
