Good Eats: E Squared Brunch

Breakfast is my jam.  I love it.  I would eat an extravagant meal for breakfast every day.  In reality, I lack the time and organization and it would be a terrible move for my waist line.  However, on the rare occasion that I get to go out for brunch, I savor every moment.  In the […]

Normally I’m only a big hot dog fan in the summer time.  For one, it’s a massively easy meal for a hot summery evening.  It also is just the quintessential lunch or dinner at a picnic or after a day by the pool.  So my hot dog consumption usually sticks to the months of May […]

Have you eaten at Union Pig & Chicken? If so, you already understand my obsession.  If not, get your butt there ASAP.  It’s amazing. We’ve tried a lot of items on the menu over several visits for lunch and dinner: brisket, pork, ribs, fried chicken, mac & cheese, coleslaw and cornbread.  Friends, it’s all good. […]

Weekend Recap

What a fabulous weekend I had.  We hosted a house warming party, in an open house format, to welcome family and friends to our humble abode.  It was lovely.  There was a lot of food. Then, on Sunday – wait for it – we actually RELAXED.  That word hasn’t been a part of our vernacular […]

Good Eats: Cibo

Cibo is a lovely, contemporary Italian restaurant in the heart of Regent Square.  It also happens to be a 5 minute drive from our house…score.  I think everyone should have an awesome Italian restaurant within a few miles of their house, it’s just practical. Well, even if Cibo wasn’t 5 minutes from our house, we’d […]
