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…

My day “job”…

I’ve reached a point in my life to where I am excited to tell people what I do for a living.  I could refer to it as a job, but wasn’t a “job” what we grew up knowing as something that we would have to drag ourselves out of bed for just to keep the…

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…

Did someone say Brunch?

I’ve been many places for Brunch.  In fact, it’s one of my favorite meals, if not the favorite when someone asks me what my favorite meal is. I’ve been expensive places, inexpensive places, and just right places, and they’ve been all over the board as far as quality. This morning at Europa probably beat them…

Keeping it local with The Blend & Co.

When it comes to supporting local businesses, I’m one of the first to stand up and show my support.  Recently, a  little coffee shop opened up in our historic downtown area of Burlington, NC.  I had been trying to get there since they opened, but hadn’t been able to until this morning.  Lucky for me,…

LaRue – A great addition to Greensboro dining

Sitting here on a cloudy afternoon, bored and with no one to talk to but my cat, I can’t help but think about last night’s meal. Another blogger friend and I were invited to a special preview of the new LaRue restaurant opening in downtown Greensboro on Monday, March 23. It’s a small French restaurant…

Delancey’s – Perfect Southern Goodness

I know some of you already know this, but if you’re late to the Foodie Party, I also write for a local magazine here. I try to share each article with you after it’s published. However, I’m a month behind. This one is from the December 2012 issue of Alamance Magazine. It’s about the most…

Believing in Humanity…and Curtis Stone, too!

I am a firm believer that people come in and out of our lives for a reason. I also believe that the kindness of strangers is still alive and kicking. Whether it’s the person you pass in the street you exchange smiles with, or it’s the server at your dinner table…we all meet for a…

Dreams of a Restaurant of Kindness…

In the grand scheme of life, we are put here to be good human beings. I am finding more and more that kindness is actually catching on. It’s becoming “trendy” might I venture to say? Seemingly, people are more aware of the human condition than ever before. We know that our neighbor was laid off…

My New Project! Fresh. Local. Good. food group Blog!

I know it’s been a while since I have posted, and please forgive me. Between introducing a new kitten to a well established older cat in our home, long days of work and exercise, and now a dabble of a cold, it has surely been busy. But that’s all the ho-hum of what’s been going…
