Sweet Tea Sundays: 7 April, 2019

I don’t know about y’all, but where I live it’s SPRING. Finally! Warmer weather, greenery, and… rain. A lot of rain. But whether there’s rain or shine in your neck of the woods, I think we can all agree that this is the perfect time […]

#LocalFoodieFriday: Chik’n & Mi

Out of the Kitchen: Lisbon, Portugal

Bom día, loves! I’m so excited to share this blog post with you, because Lisbon was one of my favorite places that we visited. When people hear that we went to Portugal, they often have the same question: “Why Portugal? Wasn’t Spain enough?” A) No, […]

Kentucky State Fair 2018

The Kentucky State Fair may be over, but it’s never too early to start planning for next year! Really, after you visit the fair once, it becomes a waiting game to see how long you have to suffer until you can go again. Once a […]

#LocalFoodieFriday: Naïve

It’s been a while since my last #LocalFoodieFriday post featuring Simply Thai, but now that I’ve had some time to recover from the shock of paying for my wedding/honeymoon/house triple threat, I’m ready to get back into the local food culture! Up this week is […]

Raspberry Lemon Macarons

After weeks of recipe testing, I’m happy to report that my recipe for French macarons is ready to go! It took a lot of whipping, a lot of folding, and a heck of a lot of sitting around and doing nothing, but I finally got […]
