Adam surprised my by decorating our house with birthday signs for when I woke up on Friday and then came home from work that evening with flowers.  Saturday, […]

22 Weeks Collage

Sorry for only one recipe this week! It’s been a crazy couple of weeks! I’m hoping to get back in the kitchen this weekend. At the end of May, Adam & I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary.  It’s been a wonderful 7 years, full of ups and downs but the best 7 years of my […]

Big Bad Wolves

A few weeks ago, I surprised Adam with college football tickets to our favorite team. (Don’t worry this post is just about the food and restaurants we ate at…not anything about the team/game)! We went down early and explored the campus and ate a few of the famed restaurants.  We started out the day by […]

Las Vegas Attractions

Eiffel Tower

I was out of town this past weekend and last week was super crazy so I’ve been out of the kitchen, so I thought I’d go ahead and share the fun attractions we visited in Vegas.  We had such a great time and there is SO much to do in Vegas! When we arrived we […]

DSC_0068

Hey friends! The reason you may not have seen me around as much on facebook & here on the blog last week & this week is because I was on a much needed vacation to Savannah & Hilton Head with Adam & some great friends of ours. It was a quick trip but it was […]

Strawberry on Top: Disney Edition

DSC_0117

As I mentioned earlier this week, Adam & I just returned from the most magical place on Earth, Disney World.  It just happens to be one of my favorite places ever.  No where else can an almost thirty year old act like a big kid and dance on the sidewalk along with the parade! It’s […]

Flip Burger Boutique Atlanta, GA

Adam surprised me for my birthday with an overnight trip to Atlanta. He took me to eat at Flip Burger Boutique which is owned by none other than Richard Blais of Top Chef Fame! We got to experience his molecular gastronomy in full force with the liquid nitrogen milkshakes and swiss cheese foam on my […]

San Francisco Eats

The food in San Francisco is fabulous! There are so many options it can be overwhelming. Everywhere we ate was really good and I would definitely recommend. Some we happened upon, some were suggested by our concierge and some I found on yelp. I made reservations at Town Hall after seeing it on Yelp and […]

San Francisco Treats

Rice-A-Roni, A San Francisco Treat…well we didn’t eat Rice-A-Roni while we were there but we ate several delectable treats for sure! We absolutely loved San Francisco and were amazed at all there is to do & see there not to mention great food! Today I will share all our fun dessert places that we visited […]

Urban Stack in Chattanooga, TN

Adam turned the big 3-1 on Monday and we love to not just celebrate on the day, but have an entire “Birthday Weekend.” Last year we went to Atlanta and went to the zoo & aquarium so this year we decided to be more low key and stay closer to home. We spent a fabulous […]

Amy’s Bread NYC

So sorry for my lapse in posting! I was blessed to get to visit New York this weekend with some wonderful friends and had a great, but exhausting time! I love New York and I will take any chance I get to go to the food capital of the world! We mostly ate at places […]

The Donut Hole

So we just got back from a vacation to the beach and I am still trying to get back in the swing of things! I have lots of great plans for cooking & baking this weekend so hopefully some delicious recipes will be coming your way in the very near future. In the mean time […]

Top Chef Kevin & Woodfire Grill

Adam surprised me with an early birthday present this past weekend. He made reservations at Woodfire Grill in Atlanta. If you are a Top Chef fan, you know that this is Kevin Gillespie’s restaurant. He is my favorite contestant of all time! I am a huge fan of the show, as most of you are […]

Atlanta & The Flying Biscuit

For Adam’s birthday, I surprised him with a quick overnight trip to Atlanta. We stayed in the Buckhead area and our hotel was right beside this little gem, The Flying Biscuit Cafe. I had heard about it on Food Network one time, so we decided to try it out. It was so cute inside! Plus […]

NYC Sweets

On our trip to New York, Adam & I decided we would do a bakery crawl of sorts. By that I mean visit as many bakeries as possible in our three short days there. We didn’t make it to every one that we wanted to, but that gives us reason to go back, right?:) So, […]

NYC Eats

So it’s always been a dream of mine to visit the Big Apple during Christmas time. Well, this past December I finally got the opportunity! Adam had some hotel rewards to cash in and we got a great deal on flights, so we decided to go for it. We went the first weekend of December. […]

Disney Deals

As promised last month, here is my post on how we saved money at Disney on our trip in May. And a lot of them are how to save on food. Disney Tips: Bring a backpack that you can store your snacks, fast passes, camera, and sunscreen in. We got one that had outside pockets […]

Disney’s Dining Experience

So, we went to Disney about six weeks ago. Yes I know I’m behind, but I took so many pictures and we’ve been so busy that it was just last week that I got them on my computer. I won’t bore you with all the many pictures I took of every little thing we did, […]

Rave: Taco Mamacita

For lunch on Adam’s birthday, we recently ate at a great new restaurant in Chattanooga, TN called Taco Mamacita. It is a GREAT restaurant. They feature mostly tacos (obviously) but also have other mexican dishes as well. The cost is super reasonable and their tacos are so inventive. They use all fresh ingredients and they […]

Rave: Shane’s Rib Shack

An answer to a Southern girl’s prayer! Just kidding. Adam and I have been longing for a good barbeque restaurant in our town- there are a couple, but we just don’t enjoy them (the sauce isn’t our fave). So when we heard that Shane’s Rib Shack had moved into town we knew we had to […]

Rave: Cabana Restaurant in Nashville

This past weekend Adam & I spent the night in Nashville. I used to work and live there, but it was when we were engaged and he was living in a different city, so I didn’t stay there on the weekends. Because I went home a lot, I didn’t get to experience a lot of […]

Cafe Roma & Painting

Last weekend we went to eat a great local restaurant called Cafe Roma. It is so delicious! We have been wanting to try it for a while, but just kept forgetting about it. So, we finally went last Sunday after church and it was so delightful. It has a great atmosphere and the lunch prices […]

Downtown Dinner

On my actual birthday, my husband took me to eat at one of my favorite restaurants, Tony’s. They make their pasta fresh everyday and you can even make your own combinations. Adam had Chicken Tetrazzini (pictured 1st) and I had Spaggetini Con Crudo (pictured 2nd). Both were amazing and so fresh tasting. Then we walked […]
