Where to Eat in Savannah – Off the Beaten Path!

Lovely historical Savannah, home of the Lady and Sons restaurant-that butter, cream, meat and fried food laden buffet owned by Paula Deen.  I’m sure you’ve all heard about her unfortunate but not surprising announcement that she has type II diabetes that can lead to heart disease, glaucoma, foot, skin, mental health problems…all kinds of nastiness.  Paula, […]

Tofu Kra Prow with Buckwheat Noodles

My favorite dish to get at my local hole-in-the-wall Thai restaurant, Mai Thai, is Tofu Kra Prow, described as mixed vegetables and basil leaves in a chili-garlic sauce.  I always order steamed rice noodles on the side as opposed to white rice.  My eyes light up when the fragrant dish arrives, piled high with super spicy and fresh, tender-crisp […]

Camping in Savannah

We had an amazing time camping in Savannah last weekend at Skidway State Park. After much searching for the perfect spot..there she is! There are marshes all around the park where my dad collects fiddler crabs to catch fish with. Dad the fiddler crab wrangler. Hi guys! Sure enough, right when we finally found a […]

Birthday Trip to St Augustine and the Floridian

In the months of January and February we have quite a few birthdays between friends and family.  This year we all decided to head down to St Augustine to celebrate yesterday.  Of course, I suggested our new favorite little place to stay called the Edgewater Inn. (The view from here is where the photo for the home page […]

Girls Weekend!

This past weekend marked the second campout with my new camper and the first ladies only trip….me, my mom and my daughter.  It started off a bit iffy…cold, rainy, electrical in the camper not working….but with the help of some park rangers, four to be exact, that came to the rescue, the electrical came on (and […]

Restaurant Review: Chipotle Mexican Grill

This past Monday night we were on the way to the Jaguar game and I decided I wanted to stop at Chipotle Mexican Grill.  Have you been there? Their mantra is “Food with Integrity is our commitment to finding the very best ingredients raised with respect for the animals, the environment and the farmers.” How can […]

Bite Club at Havana Jax

My third bite club event was at Havana Jax that features Cuban American food.  After reading their menu I was very excited to attend this event.  It was to be more of a mingling bar type atmosphere with two salsa dancing teachers on hand to teach us how to salsa! Upon arrival we were given a sample mojito […]

Sting Symphonicity Tour

Last weekend Chris and I made the two hour trek to Orlando, Florida to begin our 4th of July weekend away trip to see Sting in Tampa.  Luckily we didn’t hit much of the Orlando 5:00 traffic as we were heading into the city.  We settled into the Westin Imagine which is a contemporary hotel 1.5 miles […]

Bite Club at Mandaloun Mediterranean

Last Tuesday was my second Bite Club event at Mandaloun Mediterranean.  I have been to this restaurant before and it’s one of my favorites.  I was so excited to go back and try a few items I have never tried!I arrived just at 5:45 and people were getting drinks at the bar.  The walls are […]

My Weekend and a Shrimp Marinade Recipe

I finally got my photos from this past weekend and it was a good one. It started out with a Girl’s Night In on Friday night. Since my husband Chris was out of town on a golf trip, my daughter, Mom and I had a sleepover. We started the night with steamed broccoli and a Kashi Caribbean […]
