New Years Resolutions - Eat Healthy and Enjoy Life

Eat healthy, enjoy life. That's the motto of the newest and most tasty Dallas Chinese Restaurant on the scene - Ming Place China Bistro! Kari and Co. would like to welcome to the web - one of our newest clients!

We are SO pleased to have provided Ming Place a new website design for their business, as well as a takeout & dine-in menu design.

They're getting RAVE reviews, Ming Place has received 5 Stars from customers on - here's what some of the patrons have said:

-”…this is the best Chinese food I've had in about 5 years, I'm going to Yelp! it.”

-”This is also genuine cuisine, the owners know their food and this family-owned business is run by the nicest and friendliest people you can imagine.”

-”I have found my new Chinese restaurant!!”

Kristy Yang of Dallas Observer says-
“…the combination fried rice was some of the best fried rice I've had in a long time. Dare I say, it's the best fried rice in Dallas proper? Hyperbole aside, it truly is a great fried rice. The sign of a good fried rice (without a better way of putting it) is if it tastes like the wok. Just like how a tasty cornbread is seasoned from a years-old cast iron skillet, the wok should be the main seasoning component of the rice. The perfect fried rice is a very simple thing, but not the simplest of tasks to achieve. Ming's Place's fried rice allows the wok to do all the work, and it results in a perfectly non-greasy and balanced dish.”

'Tis the Season to Celebrate the Grand!

WOW! I can’t believe Christmas is less than 3 weeks! If you are anything like me, you are not half way done with your shopping. With so many family members, it hard to find that perfect gift for each and every one of them, especially - finding that perfect gift for grandparents.

You want to make sure the special gift you get for them is EXTRA GRAND because they are…so, well - GRAND! One thing I love about my job of web design is having the “inside” scoop on where to find all the best gifts and interesting, unique products on my client's e-commerce websites…it makes shopping much easier. One of my newest clients that I was fortunate enough to get to create their Volusion store design is Grandma and Grandpa Gifts - an online specialty retailer of boutique gifts JUST for Grandparents.

The idea for Grandma and Grandpa Gifts was born not long after the birth of Kelly and Rob’s first Grandchild, Gianna. It's been a labor of love, a HUGE learning curve - but is now a reality! They are located in Illinois, the company is family owned, and like many baby boomers, they are now celebrating the GRAND!

Grandparents have changed a lot since I had the pleasure of spending time with mine... many of today's Grandparents think 'rocking' means attending a concert or climbing a wall...perhaps with their beautiful Grandchild! They think it's time to break a few rules and some long-held stereotypes about Grandparents.

The principles behind

• Reasonably priced, boutique gifts for today's baby boomer Grandparents

• Every item they carry celebrates the unique relationship between Grandparent and Grandchild

• No senior citizen gifts, kitchen appliances, or household tools allowed

• Some fun along the way while celebrating the Grand

With the upcoming Holiday, you must check out their Christmas gift ideas for Grandparents. Any grandparent will surely enjoy these keepsakes for years to come. And of course, EVERY Grandparent loves to brag about their little “grand” bundles of joy and what better way to show them off? By getting one of their memory books and brag books, journals and/or grandparent picture frames.

Grandma and Grandpa, Nonnie and Pawpaw, Gaga and Gramps will love any of these gifts, so please go check out today - PLUS - you can get 10% off your 'Grand' gifts (use code: GRAND10) and it just time for Christmas!

Hope you all have a very GRAND HOLIDAY! One of the many reasons we LOVE our job. What an awesome idea - now a reality. It's GRAND!
