Pecan Crusted Snapper with Sweet Potato Puree

I have been the excuse queen lately. I didn’t workout today because I was too tired. I didn’t do the load of laundry because I had to much work to do. I meant to post this Pecan Crusted Snapper with Sweet Potato Puree recipe last week and literally forgot. Are you ever like this? So let’s …

Strawberry, Spinach, and 2 Cheese Grilled Cheese

A creamy Brie, tangy goat cheese all combined with some sweet strawberries and spinach to make one grilled cheese you don’t want to put down. This week is the big move. Okay so it’s not a BIG move like from Alabama to Indiana like we did last year, but we are just moving north of the …

Louisville round 2

I traveled to Louisville about a year ago to meet up with a best friend of mine since childhood and her beautiful little girl. And a year later I returned. This time John and I were fortunate enough to go to the Kentucky Derby this year along with his sister AK and her boyfriend Daniel. You might be thinking …

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 …

Scallops

I guess it has been a craving lately because the last couple of restaurants I have been to I had to order the scallops. And the funny thing is, is that scallops are not a normal go to seafood dish for me. I prefer crab and lobster. John and I were fortunate enough to go to the SEC …

Zest

Zest is probably one of my favorite restaurants in Indianapolis. I have now eaten here twice for breakfast and twice dinner. Pretty impressive for the girl who rarely likes to eat at the same restaurant twice. Unless it’s Surin or La Parilla. Breakfast Creme Brulee French Toast Wild Hibiscus Mimosa Danny’s Throwdown Brunch – Biscuits …

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 …

Jazz Kitchen

Think New Orleans Latin fusion. And yes jazz music (not quite so much in the kitchen) but when we walked into the restaurant they had about a 9 piece jazz band playing. Who doesn’t love someone playing the saxophone?  Great atmosphere! I ordered the Not-So-Cajun Chicken Pasta was filled with oven-roasted garlic chicken breast, mushrooms, red …

Back in August Indianapolis hosted a month long event called Devour Downtown, similar to Restaurant Week in Birmingham.

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