Sweet Tea Syrup

One of my favorite things – and part of the reason I started my #GentGoesGlobal series – is discovering cross-cultural connections. Learning about the similarities that cultures share in regards to food fills me with so much joy and wonder. These similarities develop in a…

Russia: Medovik

Russia: Medovik

What is medovik? Well, for starters, medovik is a challenge. As I mentioned in my post about my award-losing chocolate chip cookies, I hate competition. But what I love is a good personal challenge. That’s why I started following the 52 Weeks of Cooking subreddit.…

Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I was so excited to call these my Award-Winning Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. But guess what? THEY AREN’T. Earlier in the year, I took what was a huge leap for me and entered the Kentucky State Fair for the first time. It’s something that…

Cranberry Thumbprint Cookies

Sweet Tea Sundays: 7 July, 2019

It’s the middle of summer, it’s hot as hell, and I just really need a cool drink, y’all. It could be worse though: I just dropped my husband off at the airport and he’s making his way to Cuba now. As jealous as I am,…

Hello and happy Friday! This week’s #LocalFoodieFriday brings us to Oskar’s Slider Bar, a small Scandinavian bar and restaurant in the Audubon/Camp Taylor area near the Louisville Zoo. Right off Poplar Level, this place is easy to miss if you aren’t looking for it. It’s…

Vegetarian Döner Kebab

Vegetarian Döner Kebab

Guten Tag, Freunde! If you checked out my recap post about our trip to Germany, you may remember that my favorite food that I had there was less German than it was Turkish. The Turkish döner kebab has become an integral part of German culture,…
