Foodie Friday: Carlile’s Barbecue

These days it seems like there is a holiday for EVERYTHING! A few months ago, my lunch companion and I decided to actively participate in National Cheeseburger Day by dining at a local barbecue joint in the city…. In my attempt to research the location for lunch that day, I also learned that I was…

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…

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!…

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”….

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. After attending #EatDrinkBham  and consuming a tasty sample of bacon from Bottle & Bone, I was persuaded for more. Upon my arrival during lunch, I immediately…

Foodie Friday #EatDrinkBham

Food In Review Friday: Saigon Noodle House

Is it me? Or am I behind on all the rave about Vietnamese food and pho? One day while shopping on my lunch break (this is a normal activity for me during lunch), I decided to try this Vietnamese restaurant in the area. I’d been hearing (by hearing I mean Twitter or some form of social…
