Maybe it’s the people you share your mornings with: the husband or wife who makes you breakfast, the toddler who wakes you up before sunrise or the drooling pup in the kitchen just itching for a full dish of food. Maybe it’s the people you share your years with: the grandfather who tells you old war stories at the Thanksgiving table, the uncle who brings you souvenirs from his travels or the aunt who can almost perfectly replicate your grandmother’s best pie recipe. Or maybe it’s the people you share your life with: the friends who have and always will be there for you, the parents who have always supported you and watched you grow or the kids who are watching and learning from you day after day. This month here at Green Valley Lifestyle, we’re celebrating our Kids + Pets issue.

GOOD TIMES

Field of Honor Green Valley Lifestyle Magazine was honored to be a media partner covering the Field of Honor. The Rotary Club of Green Valley was proud to have brought its inaugural Field of Honor flag display to Henderson and Clark County over Memorial Day weekend of 2018. There were more than 800 flags standing in a solemn formation to honor heroes in our lives. First responders and veterans were honored with the display of a U.S. flag. Veterans and currently servicing military have given so much and continue to sacrifice for our great nation. It was a special experience to show our appreciation.

Ain’t yo Tita’s Fried Chicken INGREDIENTS + 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into tenders + 2 cups buttermilk + Texas Pete hot sauce, to taste + Salt and pepper, to taste WHEN WE HEAR THE WORDS "REFINED FOOD," WE INSTINCTIVELY HAVE A CLEAR PICTURE IN OUR HEADS. A highend eatery, serving delicate caviar and hearty truffles that are light on the stomach  but certainly not on the wallet—not to mention it can sometimes be months before such a spot will even have an opening for a reservation. If, like us, you have this sort of aversion to debonaire delicacies because of inaccessibility and overpricing, then look no further  than Truffles N Bacon Café. While its name may sound a bit odd, I can personally give a testament to how spectacular the  food is  and how affordable the  prices are. However, while the  prices are a bargain, the  food quality never compromises. The owner, Magnolia Magat, and the head chef, Jackie Lim, had one particular philos-

ophy in mind when they started this cafe 17 years ago. Take simple food, add complicated ingredients and create something truly spectacular. "Food should be fun. We are not afraid to think outside of the box and experiment with different ingredients that wake up your palette," Magnolia says. And just a simple glance at the menu certifies that fact. Where else can you find mac and cheeseburgers, truffle oil tater tots and country-style biscuits on the same menu? Truffles N Bacon has been hugely successful so far, and it shows no indication of slowing down. Having been featured on Las Vegas Weekly and  Food Network, Truffles N Bacon is turning heads and prompting some online love. And to get you further interested in stopping by, Jackie agreed to show off one of her favorite secret recipes, Ain't Yo Tita's Fried Chicken. Try it for yourself with the included recipe. Seriously, go ahead, I'll wait. Did you make it? CONTINUED >

CULINARY CREATIONS (CON TI N U ED)

Pretty good, right? Now imagine what Jackie could do with a recipe she has kept a little closer to her chest. And while we have been talking about the high-end food and fanciful flavor profiles, Truffles N Bacon at its heart is a part of the community. Truffles N Bacon is the story of a neighborhood eatery with worldclass food, the story of two women following their passion for food and the story of incredible creativity and boldness that has been the heart of the community for many years in the past and many years to come.

Great experience! After calling around to compare companies, I decided on going with Bulldog A/C. Not only were they knowledgeable and priced right, but they wasted no time in getting the service completed! Allen was our Tech and was an absolute professional. I would definitely recommend Bulldog A/C & Heating!

Bulldog installed a new system for me and whole house humidifiers, super honest and reliable. Knocked off a star because it cost me an arm and a leg, but their quote was certainly one of the most reasonable I received. Good guys that I would recommend you check out.
