Where will you spend your tax refund?

Each year, millions of Americans look forward to that magical day when they find out how much they will be getting back in a tax refund. And while some may get back more than others, everyone still has many options on where they’d like to spend it.

You can pay bills, pay off debt, save it, spend it, or invest it. There’s no single right answer for everyone as your financial situation will largely dictate what makes the most sense.

Lehigh Valley mac and cheese, if you please!

You might remember that a while back, we named my Top Five Mac & Cheese dishes in Lehigh Valley. Apparently, you all love mac & cheese almost as much as I do (but not quite). The comments on both the blog and social media were loaded with recommendations of places that I had missed, all of which I took note of.

With so many new restaurants popping up around Lehigh Valley, we decided that it was time to do a reboot of the list, featuring restaurants that have amazing dishes, but either weren’t around or I hadn’t been to when the first edition of the list was published.

Many thought the restaurant would merely close its doors, however, that was never going to be the case!

St. Patrick's Day Activities in Lehigh Valley!

St. Patrick’s Day is usually the time of year in Lehigh Valley where a glint of spring begins to shine down on the streets that just a few weeks ago were feet deep in snow. It’s the first time in the new year focused on getting outside and celebrating with friends and family without the protective gear you’d see on at Ski Blue Mountain.

Thankfully, Lehigh Valley is home to not one, but two great St. Patrick’s Day city celebrations in for the form of the 58th Allentown St. Patrick’s Day Parade and the 5th Celtic Classic Parade of the Shamrocks in downtown Bethlehem. If you’re like us, you’re going to attend both, but if you have to decide, we’ll give you a breakdown on both as well as a few other events going on throughout the area.

Mouth Watering Old Forge Style

Over the last couple of years leading into the Lenten season, I’ve written a few blogs on pizza (okay four to be exact, but who’s counting). These blogs have named my “Top 10,” some local legendary pizza places, and even a few obscure ones. Regardless of what my lists entailed, they always opened up a can of worms and some great social media debate.

Once even some great banter where a woman told me I was crazy as Domino’s had the best pizza in Lehigh Valley. Nothing against the Domino’s franchise, but come on, really?
