New Year's Seafood, Hotdogs & Pumpkin

I learned many people like to end the New Year with seafood! What pairs better with fresh seafood than BIG portions? That’s exactly what you get when you dine in at Big Man’s in Harpersville, Alabama. BigMan’s is known for his burgers, steaks and seafood platters including alligator. In fact, he has the best tasting gator I’ve ever had. You can get it grilled or fried, but either way it will want you coming back for more. Big Man’s can even cater your next breakfast or other event and have your tailgate meal ready before kickoff! Now who would think a hotdog joint would have some awesome burgers? Tony’s Hotdog’s in Pelham burgers are so big that I can NOT finish one, but those slaw dogs…I m

Non-Traditional Christmas Catering Meal Ideas

Most people are opting to leave the cooking to the experts when it comes to Christmas Dinner. So if you are tired of the same holiday foods like turkey & ham, why not step outside the box or take a recipe from the side of the box with my friends from at Krystal. I didn’t know you could make stuffing out of Krystal burgers either. But the stuffing was very good and needed a side of cranberry sauce. The pecan makes the perfect dessert and of course decorating the box making a gingerbread house is a great way to spend time with your little one’s. Of course I was super stoked to be able to eat my favorite thing…chicken from Church’s Chicken! The holiday bundle has everything you need: chicken,

Gourmet Gift Baskets Makes the Perfect Gift This Holiday

I received 2 gift baskets from Gourmet Gift Baskets and these are some very impressive gift baskets. The Fruit & Gourmet Gift Tower (item 6809) literally sat on my floor for about a week, but when I opened the box with the fresh fruit in it the fruit looked fresh. There were not any blemishes on the apples and oranges. I need to purchase fruit for my home from this company. There was also an array of cheese, crackers and cashews in other boxes which went great with some wine. Everything was very flavorful and high quality. I would highly recommend gifts from Gourmet Gift Baskets for your clients, someone you want to impress or that special person in your life. Now there is the Kosher Basket

Non-Traditional Christmas Meals

Cowboy Chicken which is a Texas based chain and the only Alabama location in Birmingham on Highway 280 cooks up wood fire rotisserie chicken every day. Just in time for Thanksgiving, they are putting turkey’s on the grill. Any given day you can walk in and see that juicy tender chicken spinning on the grill at Cowboy Chicken. They too will gladly cater your holiday meal. Cowboy Chicken also serves warm soups and 8 to 10 fireside entrees. Now, if you want less traditional or just an incredible authentic Philly cheese steak, then make your way to the south side of Birmingham to T-Bones Authentic Philly Cheese Steaks. He serves up delicious traditional phillies up to some of his personal cre

Birmigham Named 'Hottest Top Foodie City' & Here's Why

Zagat has named Birmingham one of the Top Foodie Cities in America. The Magic City has just about every ethnicity of food there is. So I thought to celebrate the new honor, I would take you on a journey of some authentic foods from other countries that you can get here in Birmingham. Now, I literally stumbled upon Masaman Thai Kitchen Restaurant being curious in Vestavia and trying to get back on the main highway. Omg, when it comes to Thai food I could literally eat there every single day. Initially I was unsure since most Thai restaurants uses a lot of curry and I was like “no thank you” until I tried the varieties at Masaman. I am now a changed woman. A customer recommended I try the gr
