I had the opportunity to sit down for a phone interview with Jessi Baker, author of the new cookbook “Shining” which features a collection of family recipes as well as the story of Ole Smoky Moonshine.
I consider the art of making pottery to be part of my Appalachian heritage. From a young age my parents encouraged my older sister and I to learn how to “throw” at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.
We slipped away to Greenbrier yesterday to snap these maternity photos of my sister with her partner Brandon.
I’ve said this before but I like to consider myself somewhat of a donut connoisseur. I’m constantly on the hunt for the new greatest donut of my life. In Gatlinburg, there is no better place than The Donut Friar.
Gatlinburg has been a tourist destination for years but just recently it’s been on the map for moonshine, whiskey, and wine tastings. Now, there’s one more adult beverage you have to sample on your way to the national park.
As much as I love going for a hike in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park I can’t bring my fluffy son with me on every trail. There are only two approved trails for dogs in the national park and they are “The Gatlinburg Trail” and “The Oconaluftee River Trail”.
Have you heard about Gatlinburg’s latest attraction? Take a tour of Anakeesta.
Wine Fest, Biscuit Fest, and Fun Fest… need I say more??? Of course I do.
