Nutella Bark

What’s the world’s most perfect food? Nutella, of course! That’s why when I needed a truly quick (like 20 minutes) quick treat to bake for a recent birthday, I turned to this super simple recipe. It’s the quality ingredients that make it, so it can be a tad pricey to throw together, but perfect when…

Other Grand Snacks in Grand Cayman

It wasn’t all tasting menus and drinks on the beach. I managed to eat a bevy of other thangs as well, because, well…what else was I to do? Because I’m just a dainty lady, these 15 things were my top favorites: Burrata at Ave. Holy crap, this was hands down the best burrata of my…

Chef’s Counter at Avecita

After a delicious dinner the first night at Ave in the gorgeous Kimpton Seafire, I basically felt like family. Everyone at this restaurant was beyond wonderful and honestly every night I dined there (all but once) really solidified a memorable vacation experience. I don’t know if I was the first single lady to ever grace…

Zero George Cooking Class

Because I’m romantic AF, I booked the for Gent and me, “the best new cooking class” in the world. He got real sick so I did what any classy broad would do and begged for a store credit.  One or my bff and lady loves, joined me do an absolutely fantastic evening of cheese balloons…

Busk the Husk

My charming colleague/bff and I rolled into Charleston just to have a couple bomb ass food experiences within hours of each other.  First, was Sean Brock’s Husk. I’ve been here a few times, always having had my hair blown back…this time not as much. It wasn’t bad by any means, but the anticipated orgasms for…

Nutella Crack

This is a Momofuku Milk Bar recipe (purportedly) that is (purportedly) more addictive than crack. I whipped up dinner for my neighbor last weekend and we had this for dessert. He took the leftovers home in (his) dirty Tupperware that had previously housed egg rolls. He claims that this recipe was so good it didn’t…

Super Model Project: Sweet Chili & Mustard-Glazed Salmon

I’m over here just trying to hone┬ámy seafood skills…it’s always so easy to just order out in restaurants, but I hate to make it at home. Don’t ask me why. If you’re a bit seafood adverse in your home kitchen, like me, this is just the recipe for you. Chrissy Teigan claims she’s a little…

Super Model Project: Balsamic Glazed Brussels Sprouts

Vacation is in T-31 days as of today! I hope you’ve been enjoying my healthy-ish countdown on IG story. Everyone knows the next step in vacation prep after excercise and mass veggie consumption is consuming bread at the same rate of Chrissy Teigan. However, in an effort not to consume bread or in Chrissy’s case,…

What’s Up, Raleigh?

Our little city is growing! Maybe some credit goes to T&L placing Raleigh on the to visit list in 2017, but the downtown neighborhoods are booming! I’ve never seen so much activity as I have this weekend! After working from the comfort of sweats and a couch all week-long, I “forced” myself to wrap up…

RPM Italian

During four days in Chicago, I managed two trips to RPM Italian. How’s that for a review. On night one, the Gent and I had a delicious date night. The meal was so tasty that it prompted me to return before the Psychedelic Furs show to try the few things I’d failed to on night…

Nico Osteria

Playing tag along to the Gent’s meetings last week in Chicago was far too enjoyable. I saw lots of friends, but also kept a “treat yo’self” day for myself. The day started with a stroll down Michigan Avenue, reflecting on how much it’s changed and how much isn’t   there anymore. Less than enamored, I…

It’s Friday, I’m in Love…

Soooo it’s been a little while since I’ve been loving on Fridays, but I’ve saved up a few bits and bobs of the last few weeks. So, without further ado, here are some of life’s little pleasures. 1. Adidas Pure Boost- these are literal foot clouds with high arch support. My have found my jogging…
