It’s lame that I want to start every post I write with an explanation of why I don’t post anymore. I always hated reading blogs that do that. I’m trying to find ways to juggle family life, grad school, and work, and I’m making some progress. I even got to cook this weekend – breakfast for […]

Red Eyed Mule, Muss & Turner’s, Foxeria, Umaido, Nduja Pasta

September 22, 2015

Hey there. Been a minute. Here are some things which are delicious I’d like to talk to you about.   The Red Eyed Mule in Marietta. One of the best southern breakfasts in town. The grits are cheesy and creamy, sausage is flavorable, and the biscuit is the wonderful sweet, fluffy type that puts Chik-Fil-A […]

Little’s and Homegrown

August 24, 2015

Some of my favorite dining experiences are super casual. I tend to get more excited to hear about a hot wing shack on Marietta Street with a line of people out front, than I do that Ford Fry will be consulting on the new bar/restaurant in the Four Seasons. It’s not my side of town, […]

Summer Pasta

July 26, 2015

One of my favorite summer dishes to make is a kitchen sink pasta based on a technique I learned from a Michael Ruhlman video a few years ago. The basis is that you chop up some ripe tomatoes and let it sit (unrefrigerated) a while so the liquid draws from the fruit, offering up a beautiful tomato water. This water serves as the starting point for […]

Central Texas BBQ – Snow’s, Kreuz, Black’s, La BBQ, Louie Mueller, more…

July 15, 2015

For more than six months, I’ve been wanting to post these photos, but haven’t found the time. Wait, time isn’t found, it’s made, as my father reminds me. He being the likely source of my fastidiousness which fuels the type of person (A/INTJ) who spends a month writing spreadsheets and plotting maps for a dude’s trip around Central Texas with a […]

Jet’s Pizza

July 6, 2015

Until recently I’d never tried Jet’s Pizza, a small chain out of Michigan with some locations around Atlanta. I’d never even heard of them until my brother told me about them, as there is one near his home in Smyrna. They have all kinds of pizza, but the square cut Detroit style is what we’re here to […]

My father had surgery on both feet last week, so he’s laid up and generous friends have been dropping off food to make life a bit easier. Our friends Alba and Javi, who relocated from Barcelona to Greenville a few years ago, dropped off this beautiful tortilla, a Spanish omelet of potato and onion and egg. […]

BoccaLupo Risotto

June 12, 2015

This risotto at BoccaLupo was on special about ten days ago, and a similar version remained earlier this week when I returned just a few days later, once I remembered that it is one of the best restaurants in town and my ass needed to embrace that fact. This $31 behemoth of slick rice and sea treats is […]
