Global Street Food Hits Birmingham!

Two things: I love Birmingham. Secondly, I love the FOOD in Birmingham… Thrillist  recently rated Birmingham as one of America’s underrated food cities, and I couldn’t agree more….

She Cooks! (Sometimes) – Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

As a single woman, I often get asked “Do you cook?” Currently, I primarily cook for one person, ME and I have to admit I’ve become quite the “takeout order” connoisseur. Prior to establishing a food blog, I realized that I have this insane obsession with cookbooks! You would think I was a professionally trained…

Feast of St. Mark – Italian Food Festival Recap!

All I have to say is there had better be some flowers in May because there have been plenty of April showers! I really didn’t get to enjoy the festival this year as I’d wanted as black women’s hair and the rain do not mix. #GirlProbs I was determined to spend a little time at…

Home is not a place it is a feeling…

I briefly contemplated sharing such a personal moment in my life, but my fellow blogger buddies are so warm and welcoming I couldn’t keep this to myself. Approximately 9 months ago I stepped out on faith and became a home owner. Recently, friends and family came over to celebrate with me and “christen” the new…

Foodie Friday – Bottle & Bone

Birmingham just keeps getting better everyday… If you haven’t had the pleasure of visiting Uptown, “Birmingham’s Premier Entertainment District”, I encourage you to do so in the very near future.

Throwback Thursday: Mediterranean Food!

The one thing that I love about being a foodie is that my friends love food just as much as I do. Taziki’s is one of my favorite Mediterranean food stops, but I was excited when a friend invited me out to lunch at The Olive Branch in Cahaba Heights… I opted for the Greek…
