Welcome to Birmingham, Trader Joes!

In the last year or so, the city of Birmingham and surrounding areas has seen a spike in the addition of grocery stores. Over the years, I have followed several people on Instagram and other social media outlets that are located in cities that have Trader Joe’s grocery stores. I’ve often found myself quite jealous…

Tasty Tuesday: This Is How I Roll…

One of the great perks of deciding to become a food blogger is also becoming an active member of some of the blogger groups that connect so many bloggers and writers in the city and surrounding areas. Becoming a member of Birmingham Bloggers has allowed me to connect with so many cool bloggers as well…

EAT LOCAL: Taste of Pelham Review

Last month, I had the pleasure of attending the 3rd annual “Taste of Pelham” event held at the Pelham Civic Complex. All of the proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the Pelham Library Building Fund. Since the inception of my blog, I’ve had the pleasure of attending several “foodie events” that highlight various locally owned…

Food in Review Friday: Galley & Garden!

There is no better way to experience the culinary culture of my favorite city than to dedicate a FULL week to visiting as many restaurants as possible and trying the various dishes. Unfortunately for me, life happened and I was not able to fully engage in Birmingham’s Annual Restaurant Week as I’d originally planned. BUT!…

Happy Labor Day!

Happy Labor Day to all of my fellow foodies from My Foodie Affairs! What do you have planned for the holiday? Let’s us know in the comments! Photo Cred: Pinterest

Birmingham’s Best Bites: A Love Story of Food & My Favorite City….

First things first: I am COMPLETELY biased when it comes to the city where I was born and raised, Birmingham. When I first caught wind of the release of Birmingham’s Best Bites: Favorite Recipes From Restaurants, Bars, & Food Trucks Around The Magic City, I could not wait to add this gem to my “foodie arsenal”….

When Bad is Really, REALLY Good!

One of my favorite meals of the day is breakfast! (It is also the most important meal of the day according to all moms and grandmothers across the world) Big Bad Breakfast has been on my “foodie radar” since their arrival in the Magic City. I tried to wait until the “newness” of this place (which…

Throwback Thursday: Vizzini Farms Winery

Located in Calera, Alabama, Vizzini Farms is one of my favorite places in Alabama… I learned of this small gem a few years ago while attending a Christmas party that was hosted by a friend. Immediately after tasting a sample of the traditional Riesling with a semi-sweet green apple finish, I was completely sold on…

Throwback Thursday: Jinsei Sushi

Because you need another reason to be sold on the fact that Birmingham is one of the most underrated “food” cities around… *inserts sarcasm here* A few months ago, I enjoyed a fun night out with a friend dining on sushi at Jinsei Sushi  located in one of my favorite spots in the city of…

Uncle Maddio’s Grand Opening!

Another day, another super cool food joint in the city… A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending the grand opening of Uncle Maddio’s  and I can’t wait to go back. This Atlanta-based build your own pizza concept is also now located in The Village at Lee Branch in Birmingham. I absolutely love pizza,…

Blogger Besties & Almost “Birthday Twins”

What happens when two blogger buddies who are almost “birthday twins” and foodies come together to celebrate?! A fun night out and delicious food! A few months ago me and my “blogger bestie”, Artney, had the pleasure of attending #EatDrinkBham. Artney is also the magic behind My Pretty Brown Blog (check it out!). Bellini’s was…

Celebrating the 4th of July, The Pinterest Way!

If you love Pinterest as much as I do, I’m sure that you have already referenced the “virtual Martha Stewart” for ideas for the upcoming holiday. Lately I haven’t had a big appetite (if you follow me on Instagram, you may question that theory). This year, I’d like to have some much lighter Independence Day…
