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 …

A Couple Cooks (me a crepe)

Like most of you know my week is not complete without going to the Farmers Market Saturday morning – whether I am in Alabama or Indy. Nothing beats talking with local farmers about their crops, or meeting artisans who have made homemade jelly or bread. But then after I get my produce/goods for my week of …

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 …

Napolese

I will say this, John is great 93% of the time to let me indulge when I have a huge craving for something.  Last weekend I wanted to have a date night out to Napolese. And no one or thing was getting in my way of having pizza that night. I hadn’t been there except for …

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 …

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 …

14 West

Back in August Indianapolis hosted a month long event called Devour Downtown, similar to Restaurant Week in Birmingham. My foodie friend Ashley and I took full advantage of going to 14 West, a fine dining restaurant for a three course meal for $30. 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 …

Homemade Dog Treats

Recently I went on my Friday lunch date with my kindle to explore another restaurant in Indianapolis. As I was actually driving around trying to find a gas station I stumbled upon the Barking Dog Cafe. I figured why not. And it didn’t hurt that their outside tables were lime green 🙂 So I ordered …

Time for Vacation

John and I arrived in Seagrove, FL early Sunday morning to meet my parents for our beach vacation that I have literally been counting down the days until. My dad knows where my heart lies when one of the first few things he asks me is where do I want to go to eat this week? Now normally …

Louisville

One of the great things about living in Indianapolis is the location, now I am not talking about the luxury of living downtown but how many cities are within driving distance. You have Chicago that is 3 hours away, Cincinnati that is 2 hours away, and Louisville which is a little over 2 hours. A …

Weekends in Indy

I have always looked forward to weekends but lately since we moved up to Indianapolis when Thursday evening rolls around I get a little too giddy. Luckily I have a job where I just work Monday through Thursday so my Friday mornings start with lying in bed with our 3 dogs Hosea, Millie, and Nova …

Trial and Error

Since John has asked me to try to make the Black Bean Soup like we had at BARcelona Tapas we went back again recently so I could make a few notes. This weekend I tried it out with a few changes for next time. I think I had a little too much chicken stock (maybe …

Happy Anniversary

We finally made it up to Indianapolis! Only three days into our move it was our one year anniversary. We were pretty excited that we are starting off our 2nd year of marriage in a new city together. This city has some amazing restaurants which of course has me so giddy. So since I always …
