GO BURRITO!

GO BURRITO!

If there’s one thing I could eat 7 days a week it’s Mexican food. Anything served with chips and salsa is an automatic “yes” for me. My husband and I even went to Mexico on our honeymoon where we got to enjoy all the guacamole, quesadillas, and margaritas that our hearts could desire. I heard a new restaurant was opening in Johnson City that served our favorite food and wanted to share it with you! Continue reading “GO BURRITO!”

WELCOME TO CLEVELAND

WELCOME TO CLEVELAND

Hello 2019! I can’t believe I’m writing my first post of the new year. The holidays seemed to jet passed me in a blur. I think this year I’ll put up my Christmas decorations BEFORE Thanksgiving like a heathen and everyone else can just deal. Last week, Chris and I went to Ohio to see family and we spent one of our days in Cleveland. This city has A LOT to offer. Here’s what we did during our short visit… Continue reading “WELCOME TO CLEVELAND”

Our trip to New York City was in honor of my friend Hannah’s upcoming nuptials but she was kind enough to let us go inside Ladurée to sample their infamous macarons. They were every bit as delicious as I imagined they would be! I hope to one day visit their original store in Paris as well but now I can officially say I’ve had a Ladurée macaron.

THE ONLY SUGAR COOKIE RECIPE YOU WILL EVER NEED

THE ONLY SUGAR COOKIE RECIPE YOU WILL EVER NEED

My mother-in-law gets asked to make her sugar cookies for every family function of the year. I’m not much of a cookie fan so I didn’t understand what all the fuss was about. I think I first had them on the Fourth of July. She shaped them into American flags and I got my paws on one before she made it red, white, and blue. One bite. That was it. I was done for. I’ve never had a better sugar cookie in my life and neither will you. Trust me, this is the only sugar cookie recipe you will ever need.

HATTIE B’S HOT CHICKEN & BOBBIE’S DAIRY DIP

HATTIE B’S HOT CHICKEN &                     BOBBIE’S DAIRY DIP

I’m not normally one to enjoy spicy foods but you can’t visit Nashville and not have hot chicken. I wanted to go to Hattie B’s because Prince’s is rumored to be even hotter and Pepperfire is as well! So I went on a Nashville native’s recommendation to start with Hattie B’s and branch out from there. Well… after one bite my mouth was on fire but man was it good!
