The Most Wonderful Time of the Year…

It’s Christmas, everyone! My wish for you is very similar to my Thanksgiving post. I hope that you receive all of the love, peace, and joy that your heart can handle today and everyday… Check out a flashback photo of the founder of My Foodie Affairs! It looks like she was pleading her case with…

Thankful Thursday – It’s Turkey Day!

If you can read this post, then that’s enough to be thankful for! I’m so grateful for a day that is set aside for friends, family, food, and fellowship! (And sweet potato pie. My fave!) Be present in the moment. Try to put the phone down. (unless you’re capturing memories with your loved ones). Eat…

{MFA Monday’s!} My Favorite Things: Part 1

Hey guys (and gals)! Oprah isn’t the only person that has a “favorites list”. She’s just one of few people that can actually give them away to a number of people! The following is a small list of things/items I’m “feeling” right now… Cooking at home! If you know me, this is sort of a…

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.

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.

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.

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…
