I absolutely love Asian food, so any chance I get I’m trying to create something with an Asian inspiration to it. I love general tso chicken, but my diet does not. Why not make something with similar flavor, but healthier? You can serve this up like I did with Jasmine Rice, but if you are just about to reach your calorie limit or need a quick snack, why not some lettuce wraps? I sometimes use cabbage because it holds up better. Something a dear friend taught me.
Ingredients you will need (Serves 4):
1/4 cup of 99% Fat Free Chicken Broth
1 tbsp of less sodium soy sauce
1 1/2 tbsp of Tomato Paste
1 tbsp of Apple Cider Vinegar (you may also use rice vinegar)
1 tsp of Hoisin Sauce
1 tsp of Sesame Oil
1 tsp of Siracha Hot Sauce (You may add more if you like it spicier) (more…)

How many of us thought 1 & 2, 0 & 3, maybe 2 & 1? How about two wins on the road; and the stunner, winning from behind in the home opener — 3 & 0?!?
Also to mention, two of those wins were against premier playoff contenders with two ELITE Quarterbacks. DOLFANS, these aren’t your daddy’s Miami Dolphins. They aren’t special, there are no curses. “Right Now” and moving forward, they are “LEGIT”!!
For once in a LONG TIME, these Fins are win for win with the Patriots. For once in a LONG TIME, these Fins are winning from behind. For once in a LONG TIME these Fins are averaging 25 points a game. (more…)

This dynamic duo are two classically trained string instrumentalists that shut it down with an amazing performance that blends classical and hip-hop music into one to bring the audience an experience unheard of.
Who said hip-hop was dead?! Not in South Florida at least! These South Florida natives attended Dillard High School of Performing Arts and went on to Florida State University and Florida International University respectively. (more…)

Being Cuban and living in Miami, I do not want to give up my Cuban food so easily. Finding a balance is what it is all about. To make a healthier version of our famous Cuban picadillo, I swapped out regular ground beef for ground turkey. The result is just as amazing.

Well Heat Fans, how about another round of applause for YOUR Miami Heat! Let’s talk about the NBA off-season and Free Agency. The BIG catch landed in Houston, CP3 returned to “Lob City”, and the Top Tier players either went back to their original starting point of their careers, or took the low road for their “Pay Day”.
So who won in Free Agency — We’ve all seen the Vegas odds, it’s been none stop buzzing since last week, we’ve seen and heard the reaction from around the league. Here’s who, the team that looks good on paper, that’s who? For the last 3-5 years we’ve grown accustom to that phrase.
Last year’s paper champion “The Lakers;” one and done in round ONE and it wasn’t even close. I’m not Laker hating, this is just a fact. So, who’s the “Paper Champ” this year? (more…)

The title is a three part story of the Days Long Gone, to Current Events that has shaped South Florida sports for the last 40 years. Let’s reflect once again back to the 70’s…. The roar of the crowd within the Orange Bowl, the remarkable 17-0 undefeated season and Back-to-Back Championships by our beloved Dolphins, led by Shula, Griese, Morrall, Csonka and the No-Name Defense. A winning culture was born and rooted deeply within the hearts of South Floridians.
A story book beginning, with a fairy tale journey that has taken South Florida on the longest roller-coaster ride leaving the faithful hanging on year after year, from disappointment to disappointment, hoping, wishing, praying, some might even go as far as knocking on the door of the Voodoo Bones Lady asking for help! What happened to the “Fun in the Sun?” Where has that roar of the crowd disappeared to? (more…)

Miami Heat fans! We all came through when our team needed it the most with our “DEFENSE” and “LET’S GO HEAT” chants! This is a series that will go down in the history books! From 3-point records broken by San Antonio’s Danny Green, to a triple double of 30+ point, 11 assists, and 10 rebounds in a Finals game by our very own Lebron James!
A feat that has not been done in over 30+ years! This series has come down to one game. This one game will decide a champion! The tenacity this Miami Heat team exemplified all season and through the playoffs, has shown the world what this team has that the Spurs do not; a will to come through when backs are against walls!

Here we go Miami! The Miami Heat vs the San Antonio Spurs NBA Finals has been tied up at two games apiece as the Heat seek to bring a 3-2 series lead back to Miami on Sunday when these two powerhouse teams go at it again for Game 5 in San Antonio!
It has been a rollercoaster series for these two teams where we have seen superstars shut out of their roles and role players step up huge to help win games.
This series will become one for the ages. We saw homecourt advantage taken away from the Heat with a San Antonio Game 1 win, and a bounce back win for the Heat that took the series to San Antonio for Game 3, 4, and 5.
A blowout win ensued in Game 3 that left the Miami Heat and fans questioning the abilities of the Heat’s Big 3 in Lebron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh who have been having less than mediocre in these Finals. (more…)

Statement? No. Experience, perseverance, and utter dominance? Yes! Our Miami Heat are once again the Eastern Conference Finals Champions for the third straight year since the Big 3 came together. The 99-76 Game 7 blowout win against the Indiana Pacers re-established what the Heat were designed to do. Come through in BIG GAMES. There’s no need to get into stat lines, only that the players that were supposed to show up, showed up, and showed up BIG. Lebron James continued to be who he is, the Greatest Player on the Planet. Dwyane Wade got it going early in the first quarter and developed confidence in his shot again to finish with 21-points. (more…)

This seems like kind of a familiar setting. The Miami Heat in a Game 7, winner takes it all to the NBA Finals. Rewind. Last year, Miami Heat vs the Boston Celtics. Game 7. That picture of that look in Lebron James’ eyes that went viral. This is what’s to come Monday vs these Pacers. Lebron and his relentless stare into the eyes of what stands before him and his path to another NBA Championship. “This is where your brotherhood gets strengthened,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. With both Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh struggling to find themselves in this series, Lebron has carried his teammates. “Those guys are professionals, as championships, we’ll figure it out,” Lebron said. (more…)

Yes Lebron, one more win will take you to the NBA Finals for the third consecutive year. Just one more win. Testy attitudes, pushes, and shoves set the tone early on in this game. At halftime, our Heat were down 40-44 and the game was looking much like the previous losses against these Pacers. Then came the third quarter and some guy named Lebron James who just had it. Lebron went on the score 16 of his game-high 30-points in the third quarter which fueled a rally of 30 total points combined in the quarter with the rest of the Heat. The Heat managed to hold down the Pacers to a measley 13-points in the third. The fourth quarter was fairly even with both teams pretty much going point-for-point, but the third quarter rally was too much for these Pacers to recover from. Udonis Haslem came up big for the Heat who contributed 16-points and went 8-9 from the field. Dwyane Wade continues to struggle because of a bad knee aggravated earlier in the playoffs and went 3-8 in Game 5 for only 10-points, but added 6 rebounds, 4 assist, and 1 steal. (more…)

The series has been all tied up Heat fans. The Heat went on to win Game 1 103-102 on a buzzer beater by Lebron James on an uncanny move by Indiana Pacers coach Frank Vogel leaving Roy Hibbert out of the last play of the game. The move was largely scrutinized around the league and the NBA world. The Miami Heat has had their homecourt advantage taken away from them twice in this year’s playoffs only to regain it back with authority. The Pacers went on to steal homecourt advantage from the Miami Heat in Game 2 with a win of 97-93 that left the Miami Heat fuming on the way up to Indiana. Game 3 turned into an embarrassment for the Pacers, who lost Game 3, 114-96. (more…)

So much for the Chicago Bulls winning Game 1 in Miami, right? The Miami Heat won four in a row since, and have advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals for the third straight year. The Miami Heat look to either face the New York Knicks or the Indiana Pacers in the next series. I was predicting an MIA vs NY Eastern Conference Finals, but it seems as if NY will not be playing much longer as the Pacers have taken a commanding 3-1 lead on them. Last night, the Miami Heat got off to a fast start that saw them go 18-4 in the first quarter to set the game’s tone. But, the Chicago Bulls did not want to go out without at least putting up a good fight. The Bulls took command of the game and led through three straight quarters into the 4th. The Heat then turned it on and took out the Bulls in a 94-91 thriller to move on to the next round. (more…)

These Semi-Conference Finals seem to be getting more and more physical as the games are played. The only difference is, the Miami Heat are not having it. The Chicago Bulls continue to wear themselves down after their Game 1 victory with their excessive physical play against the reigning world champs. The Miami Heat continue to keep their cool and do what they do best, play the game of basketball and focus on the win. The Miami Heat have regained home court advantage in this series and look to take a 3-1 lead back to Miami on Monday when these two team get back at it for Game 4. It was a close game throughout all quarters until the Miami Heat went for the kill that would’ve left a Spanish Bullfighter in awe. Tempers were flaring from the start of the game with pushing and shoving from Nate Robinson, Chris “Birdman” Andersen, Joakim Noah, Nazr Mohammed, and Lebron James. Ultimately, Nazr lost his cool on a play with Lebron that resulted in an unexpected shove that called for an immediate ejection. Lebron James didn’t shoot the ball quite well in Game 3 going 6-17 because of the physicality of the game but went perfect from the free-throw line on 11-11 shooting. (more…)

Miami Heat fans, now this is what happens to the opposing team that beats the Heat in Game 1 and gets cocky about it, they get destroyed! The Miami Heat killed the Chicago Bulls in Game 2 and showed them who are the defending NBA Champions! The game was filled with emotion and testy attitudes that featured nine technical fouls, two players ejected, and a multitude of personal fouls that lead the Miami Heat to the free throw line 29 times while converting 22 of them into points. It really didn’t help the Bulls do anything but get flipped off by an angry Heat fan. Our bench contributed 55-points where 21 of them came from Ray Allen and 18 from Norris Cole. (more…)

Well Miami Heat fans, that’s what happens sometimes when you sweep a series and your next opponent’s series goes 7 games, you fall out of rhythm.

Well Miami Heat fans, as our record-breaking season has come to an end, our Miami Heat has already gotten down to brass tacks in taking out the Milwaukee Bucks 110 – 87 in Game 1 of the First Round of the East Playoffs! The Heat wasted no time in getting into playoff form. Winning has become the new DNA strand in Miami Heat basketball. The 23-point win marked a complete team effort by Miami which saw its bench contibute 43-points total that included 20-points from Ray Allen and 10-points and 7 rebounds from Chris “Birdman” Andersen. The game was again orchestrated by Lebron James who had an incredibly efficient 9-11 shooting night to still come out for 27-points, 10 rebounds, and 2 assist shy of a triple-double with 8. “That’s about as efficient as you can get. Made that look easier than it was,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said after the game. (more…)
