Southern Burger with Fried Green Tomatoes and Pimento Cheese

So I kinda went through a burger obsession during a month of this pregnancy. And this is the reason why. Burgers = Summertime to me! I feel like I need to make a bucket list for this summer. Do you have one? Being in my third trimester means I am staying out of this heat. Luckily …

Goodbye Indy

And Hello Birmingham – yes I know we have been back for about 2 1/2 weeks now so I thought it’s time to get back into the swing of things…Blogging that is. I thought about saying “I’m Baaack” and then realized it was from The Shining – no way jose! But I have to admit being back …

Food Blog South

I went home a couple weeks ago not only to host my friend’s baby shower but also to attend Food Blog South 2014. This was my first ever food blog conference so a mix of emotions took over – excitement, anxiety, the list could go on. I consider myself an extrovert and have been blessed …

January Foodie Pen Pals

When we get our new matches via email for our new foodie pen pals, I respond to them that I love to try new foods and anything local. Most of the time I also tell them I love Mexican & Italian food but I didn’t tell Julie that. But she must have sensed it because I got a …

November Foodie Pen Pal

I am a little late to post about my great foodie pen pal this week because I went to GA for the SEC Championship game, good thing Alabama came out with a win! But John and I have been traveling every weekend for the past 5 weekends so I am glad to finally stay in one place. …

Taste

This Indianapolis Cafe has been so much fun to visit on my Friday lunch dates with my kindle. I even brought my parents to this quaint atmosphere. It even reminded me of a little place that I could find in Birmingham like Olexas or O’Carrs. The Erin Sandwich was full with asparagus, lettuce, sprouts, tomatoes, …

El Barrio

A few months back when I was in Birmingham for one night I met my two friends at El Barrio. El Barrio serves multi-regional Mexican cuisine and some great drinks. While looking at their menu the first thing that drew me in was the chile relleno. I had to laugh because when I was little …

Rock n Roll Sushi

Yes that is the name of the sushi place I went to recently on my Friday lunch date with my Kindle. It was no Surin but coming from the girl who use to eat sushi on a weekly basis in Birmingham I have been missing it dearly and am a little biased/picky. I went to one restaurant that …

Creamy Cajun Pasta Jambalaya

Remember when you first started dating your significant other? One of the things you always worry about (or at least I did) was getting along with their friends. Well I am know I am biased but John’s friends and their lovely ladies are some of the best people in my life! One of the first childhood …

Tortilla Soup

Typically when I go to a Mexican restaurant I order the same thing. EVERY SINGLE TIME…Bean burrito, cheese enchilada, and rice & beans, and of course white queso. John gets super annoyed. Oh well! But at the house I don’t think I have ever cooked this dish once. Back in Birmingham my friend Ashley and I would have our …

My Dream Laundry Room

Most people have a dream house. I do as well but the other day when I was thinking about it the first room that came to my mind was my laundry room. And then thinking of the differences in my laundry rooms from Birmingham to up here in Indy is even more comical. First being …

Home Sweet Home

Last month I remade one of my favorite soups, Spicy Coconut Soup from Surin in Birmingham. So when John and I went back this weekend of course my normal routine of Surin, Ocarrs, and Olexas continued on. But this was possibly one of the best trips home since we have moved. We got to see John’s family, my family …

Amuse-Bouche Local Tomato Gazpacho Shooter Served with a crispy tortilla topped with …

Farmers Market

Is there one routine in your life you cannot live without? There are obviously quite a few in mine, but the one that revolves around food is getting up early on a Saturday morning and going to the Farmers Market. It all started back in Birmingham when my partner in crime and I would get …
