From Zero to Vero | Brookhaven Pizzeria

A few months ago, there was only one place to go on Dresden for a slice. You may not have heard of it. Good. Because now there is a seriously can’t-miss place to go for a Napolean-style pizza pie worth ordering all to yourself. Actually, you’ll probably need two. And afterward, you won’t care about another place … Continue reading

Ice Cream is Cool Again | Four Fat Cows

Literally, one of the best parts of Atlanta’s (and metro Atlanta’s) short spring is that we don’t have to wait for the excuse to pig out on some seriously creamy goodness. (Some of you may need a better excuse than just hot weather … that is not me.) And, when you walk into a place that’s got a … Continue reading

Let’s Eat Steak for Lunch | Maya

Usually, we reserved steak dinners out for special occasions or (in my case) extreme pregnancy cravings. So, when the opportunity came up to grub hard on red meat for lunch, it was like a food Christmas. It’s definitely still the case at Maya, a Sandy Springs spot now open for lunch. They’re serving up Filet all day … Continue reading

What We’re Eating | Gluten-Free Gluttony

This is a story I worked on for the entirety of last year, until it was finally published in Points North Atlanta. Hoping these restaurants are all still open and serving gluten-free items, I decided to share it with you guys too. Here’s to hoping your own struggles are under control. A Bread and Beer … Continue reading

Tuesday’s Try This | Ride a Wave of Flavor … Or Tequila

Eat like a Maverick. It’s time to let your taste buds hang loose – or ten – as they say in So-Cal. And now that Mavericks is open in Johns Creek, you’ve got the new Mexican-inspired watering hole to do so. Named for the popular surf spot on the West Coast, it brings a powerful menu … Continue reading

Tuesday’s Try This | Don an Apron for a Date Night

Well, it’s not everyday that your “date night” includes anything other than dinner and a movie. If it’s winter, and you’re not pregnant, you could probably throw in ice skating, but otherwise, unless you’re willing to get really creative, buttered popcorn is about where it stops. (I am absolutely not complaining – I freaking love … Continue reading

Tuesday’s Try This | When Good Food Hits Your Eye

…and nose, and hands and tummy. …And actually, when it slips off the crust and hits the table – or your shirt – because it’s so darn fresh out of the brick oven… That’s how I have to start things off as I talk about two of my new favorite places in town. Yes, they’re … Continue reading

What We’re Eating | The season’s first stew

Beef Stew, that is. And one of my childhood favorites. Although I hated the smell that would wake me up in the morning from the crock pot, I do love the way it goes down on a chilly night. I’ve never tried to make it before, and I didn’t really have a recipe, so this effort … Continue reading

Something to Drool Over | New Photos on Site

Hello Readers… Who, at this point I could probably call strangers. I’ve been lax. Real lax. And for that, I apologize. Although, I am sure most of you managed to find something to entertain you these last few months, with Game of Thrones yearly showing, The Bachelor franchise steamrolling through ABC and now, with our … Continue reading

What to eat, tonight | Creamy Potato and Sausage Soup

                  Guys, this picture really doesn’t do this stew justice. But, it’s the only one I took before we ravenously consumed an entire crockpot of it. (and then moaned for an hour because we were so full, yet would have eaten more). This stew is one of … Continue reading
