Starting Fresh at The Hardware Societe

My partner in crime and I pulled into Paris ready to go. We had enjoyed a light breakfast earlier at the train station, but were planning on making brunch near our Montmartre hotel the main morning meal event. On our way to the city I checked out a few reviews for the area and kept…

Sneak Preview | Paris

This spring I’ve been falling in love with the city of love. Back to back trips in March and April with two of my favorite people had me discovering all kinds of beautiful new haunts, and that means now I get to share them with you! Paris is such a beautiful city, and this was…

TBT | Tips for Cooking in Love

Man Friend is the best fiance in the world. Okay, I’m obviously biased, but one of the things that makes him great is he loves getting busy in the kitchen! Busy making awesome food, that is. Often we’ll go out to eat and try something, and his first reaction is to ask, “I wonder how…

TBT | Sauce & Slaw at the Root Beer Shack

Man Friend is a West Virginia native, so this January when we headed over to meet the parents and explore his hometown he wanted to give me the authentic experience. Apparently in West Virginia that means having a hotdog with sauce and slaw. I first learned about hot dog sauce pretty early in our relationship….

TBT | My Life-Changing Salad at Savamala

It’s been over a year since I went traipsing through Serbia, and still one dish stands out in my mind: the Gulliver Salad at Savamala. Right across from the Belgrade train station, this little Italian eatery isn’t hard to find. We discovered it because it was attached to our hotel, and when we arrived in…

We All Scream for Ice Cream at Graeters!

Graeters ice cream is one of my favorite parts about being in Northern Kentucky (aside from all the lovely people, obviously). The details make it at Graters. Their shops all keep up this cute ice cream parlor vibe that reminds me of grabbing cones in the summer with my grandparents in the ’90s (you know,…

A Taste of Kentucky at Patti’s 1880s Settlement

Patti’s is more than just a restaurant. It’s an experience. Located in Grand Rivers, Kentucky, just outside of national recreation area Land Between the Lakes, Patti’s is well-loved by locals and travelers alike. It’s a big place but the dining area is split up into smaller, more intimate spaces, each with their own decor and…

Louisville Brunch at Wild Eggs

Enjoying a weekend in Louisville, my friends (who had recently moved there) asked me where we should try for brunch. I had heard about Wild Eggs, but hadn’t had the chance to experience it yet, so we decided to give it a shot. Since we went at 10 a.m. on a Saturday morning, I expected…

Greasy Delight At Matt B’s

Murray, Kentucky is a small town kept bustling by the university bearing the same name. Murray is a place full of traditions both old and new, where the best things are often understated and not ostentatious. That’s precisely the case with Matt B’s Main Street Pizza, a pizza joint that lies across main street from…

TBT | Dining Fine at Tri Sesira

While in Serbia we caught a taxi downtown for some lunch. We landed in Skadarlija, an old bohemian neighborhood in the center of Belgrade. Tri Sesira, or “The Three Hats,” in English, caught our eye with its beautiful terrace seating and affordable menu. The menu had relatively good English translations, which is always very helpful….

Those Parcell’s Doughnuts Make Me Go Nuts

Parcell’s Bakery is possibly my favorite doughnut stop in the entire world. Located in Draffenville, Kentucky just a few miles from I-24, it’s a great place to drop in and grab some delicious and local flavor. The doughnuts are made fresh every morning, and it’s less than $10 for a dozen. That’s including filled long-johns,…

TBT | Mix’n it up at Mixr Pizza

When I’m in Budapest, there is one place I always try to hit up: Mixr pizza. It’s a love affair that started years ago, and it never fails to deliver. Except that I always eat in. There are three locations of Mixr spread around the city. My last time there I dropped in near Heroes…
