Your Neighborhood Chinese Delivery – Peking House

Sometimes I feel like we get so wrapped up in the new, the unique, and the expensive that we forget about our friendly neighborhood restaurants.  We forget that they are there as well, and looking to serve us delicious food with friendly service.  A few months ago, my love and I received a menu on…

Carolina Jubilee – A Music Festival for the farm lover in all of us

When someone speaks about putting money in the dirt, I immediately think about finding a shovel.  However, when Carolina Jubilee founder, Zack Wyatt, speaks about putting money in the dirt, he isn’t burying money for me to dig up.  What he’s doing is giving back to our local farms to assist them in purchasing day…

LaRue – My Cheers

In this day and age, I’m rarely amazed by people remembering faces and names.  I find that we spend so much time looking down into our smart technology that we forget to look up and meet people.  Also, in the world of Google, why bother to remember anything anymore.  You can just ask your phone…

LaRue – A great addition to Greensboro dining

My 10 Flavors I Love in Alamance County and Beyond

Sundays with Friends: Vinnie’s Neighborhood Italian

I’m breaking from the traditional format of Sundays with Friends for the simple purpose of telling you about the final restaurant we visited in Asheville, NC.

Hungry for BBQ? You will be…

I have another project I’m working on for a local company here, and I have had my hands in magically delicious pork BBQ all day long. Needless to say, my hands are pretty dry from all of the hand washing. *smiles* These are four of the creations from today. When I saw the photographs I…

Transported: Destination, Stoney Knob Café in Asheville, NC

To be “transported”: To be moved from your current location. To be “beamed up” by Scotty (oh wait, that’s teleportation). To have a different experience than you expected. To allow yourself to relax in your current environment and go with the flow. Just….to be. Granted the above is all my wording, but you get the…

Culinary Weekend in Asheville, NC: Tupelo Honey Café

This is definitely one of those posts where I say to proceed with an open mind and form your own opinion. This is solely my opinion, and I am saddened that the below is true. But….it is. There is this restaurant that I have heard absolutely nothing but brilliant things about in Asheville. In fact,…
