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…

When Sushi Heads South of the Border!

Have you ever dined at one of your favorite sushi spots and once done you were still craving more? No. Just me?! Well… I finally got a chance to dine at Wasabi Juan’s in one of my favorite areas of the city, Avondale. Wasabi Juan’s serves some of your sushi faves, but with a twist….

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…. You can check out the article here. After New York Deli shut down in 2013, Chef Chris Dupont of Café Dupont was inspired to open up a spot that features…

Whose Mama? TACO MAMA!

I can be a bit of a rebel at times, so I was more than happy to break the tradition of “Taco Tuesday” by joining a friend for Taco WEDNESDAY.. Taco Mama is located in the heart of Mountain Brook in Crestline Village, a fun and family oriented area that has something to offer everyone…

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…

Throwback Thursday: The One That Got Away…

Every time I visit Brookwood Mall, I still miss one of my favorite restaurants, Zea Rotisserie & Grill. Below is the Balsamic Salmon, Sugar Snap Peas, & Mashed Sweet Potatoes… This meal was the perfect combination of sweet and savory. Did you ever get a chance to dine at Zea’s? What was/is your favorite dish?

32 Flavors of Mo! #EasterBirthday

This year my birthday fell on the perfect holiday and weekend, Easter! My “birthday weekend” began on a Thursday evening and of course food was involved.

Foodie Friday – Joe’s Italian

It’s officially my birthday month, so with that being said, I’m celebrating all month! After a friend asked what I would like as a birthday gift, you can imagine my lack of hesitation when I responded, “Let’s go to dinner.” I love, love, LOVE Italian food and have been wanting to try Joe’s Italian in…
