VINAIGRETTE COLE SLAW DOG

VINAIGRETTE COLE SLAW DOG

This post is sponsored by Hebrew National.   Spring is officially here in Atlanta and I couldn’t be happier.  I love the warm weather because it means that I get to spend more time outdoors. As the weather warms up, I entertain more, which means breaking out the grill.  I usually keep my menu fairly simple because when entertaining it’s important to have enough energy to mingle with your guests, so slaving over a meal is a no-no.  I like...Read more …
YUCCA FRIES

YUCCA FRIES

  Cassava or yucca is a staple in many countries in the Caribbean and South America.   It is a starchy root that has a mild flavor and can be used in many ways similar to potato and can be bought fresh or frozen.  The most difficult part about cooking cassava is removing the tough outer peel but with a bit of practice it’s fairly easy.  The frozen cassava is already peeled but I will link a video on now to...Read more …

ASTOR CHOCOLATE

Recently I had the pleasure of attending a wine and chocolate pairing at an Atlanta Hawks game with Astor Chocolate. Wine, chocolate and watching a game from the VIP suite – yes I was there for it since this was my first NBA game that I would be attending. When we arrived at the suite there was an array of food and drinks waiting for us. You probably haven’t heard about Astor Chocolates but you’ve probably had it before; for...Read more …

SEOUL OF THE SOUTH TOUR

DINING OUT: UNCLE MADDIO’S PIZZA

DINING OUT: UNCLE MADDIO’S PIZZA

I love to discover new restaurants here in Atlanta so when I received an invitation from Uncle Maddio’s Pizza to taste their new Thai flavors, I immediately accepted.  We’ve been eating out more and more lately and so I’ve always on the lookout for family friendly restaurants where there is something on the menu for us all.  Uncle Maddio’s Pizza is a place where you can build your own pizza with all the ingredients that you love and the best...Read more …
HOMEMADE BBQ SAUCE

HOMEMADE BBQ SAUCE

I’ve always been someone who has either made their own BBQ sauce or altered store bought sauces.  There’s just something about adding a few spices and making it my own that makes a huge difference.  Making BBQ sauce from scratch is super simple!  I’m sure you’ve all had that moment when you thought you had a full container of BBQ sauce only to discover that either it’s almost done or there’s none at all.  With just a few ingredients that...Read more …

CURRY DEVILED EGG AND EGG SALAD

This weekend I’m not doing cooking Easter lunch like I normally do but will do brunch items instead.  I will keep it simple like I usually do.  These are two great recipes that are as easy as it gets and a great addition to any Easter table.  I kept the egg salad pretty simple because honestly there are certain things that I prefer as is and this is one of those things.  Served between two slices of white bread is...Read more …

THE CAPITAL GRILLE

  This week I had the pleasure of attending an exclusive event held by my friend Milla of Happily Eating.  A select group of bloggers were invited to The Capital Grille in Dunwoody to a tasting of their Bar menu and cocktails.  I’m always excited to try a new restaurant and The Capital Grille did not disappoint; the food was amazing and the staff was extremely attentive.  Located just outside of the Perimeter in Dunwoody, The Capital Grille is definitely...Read more …
