Winter Restaurant Week 2017

This week Birmingham celebrates Winter Restaurant Week which means you can get some #gooddeals on some #localeats throughout the city. Most of the participating eateries are having great lunch and dinner specials. With Birmingham being a top #Foodie city, I had a taste of Lakeview and my first stop was a new meatball joint Cashio’s Meatball Market. I hope you buy me a few of grandma’s original meatballs and a cannoli! Cashio’s Meatball Market is located 728 29th Street South Birmingham, Alabama or give them a call at (205) 578-6090. Please tell them cousin Joy sent you! My last stop was at Sky Castle Birmingham where they give you the option of getting a lightly breaded pork chop or a trio

Good Eats in T-Town & Edgy Pizza

Tuscaloosa is making some touch downs when it comes to some delicious eats. One of the most popular spots is Cypress Inn. It not only has some mouth watering food but great atmosphere on the Black Warrior River. Cypress Inn is just one of many restaurants in Alabama that is known for it’s white bbq sauce. They also have a beautiful venue next door that’s just right for a wedding or reception. Cheers! Also while you’re in Tuscaloosa and need a place to stay with some good food, check out Legends Bistro inside Hotel Capstone. This is some of the BEST hotel food I’ve tasted in long time. Everything is cooked fresh without a lot of boxed ingredients. Finally, if you love thin crust pizza, you m

Sopping with Chris Hastings, Porky Fries & Breakfast

I thoroughly enjoyed sharing one of celebrity Chef Chris Hastings of Ovenbird favorite childhood dishes…especially since I got to “sop” that pork belly candle. It was de-lish-ous! Great atmosphere at the restaurant which is in Pepperplace in Birmingham, AL. Now if you only use ketchup on your french fries, then you need to get with the program. That’s like using a flip phone instead of a smart phone. At Good Ole Boys BBQ locations (Chelsea, Sylacauga, Pell City, Wedowee & Alexander City are all located in gas stations. They have some of the BEST smoked wings, potato salad and 2 words that a hit…#PorkyFries. These are french fries drenched in pulled pork, their BBQ sauce, & melted cheese and

Birmingham's Best Oxtails

I’ve heard many people say they can’t find any good oxtails. My response “You should hang with me!” Comedienne Joy knows where all the good eats are. This week’s show features 2 places to get delicious beef tails. In fact at Tillie’s Cafe the oxtails were so good, I wanted to drink the gravy from the pot and put it over some rice. Check her out. They’re opened Tuesday through Sunday for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They offer daily specials with a meat and 1 or 2. Tillie’s Cafe is on Minor Parkway in a mini shopping center with the Texaco. They can also cater your next event. Apple Dumpling Restaurant in the Palisades shopping center is also another great place to get some delicious comfort

WFC Blogger Summit Chanaged My Life

The World Food Championship Blogger Summit was an incredible opportunity for me to not only connect with other #Foodies from all over the world, but learn about new trends in the food industry such as #BroTorch and how Alabama shrimp and crabs get to restaurant tables. Check out Day 1 of the conference as we stayed in the beautiful Turquoise Place Condos. You must take a visit for your summer vacation. Interesting though, I was somewhat familiar with the seafood process as I grew up near Bayou LaBatre. My moved us to Mobile so we could have a better life filled with more opportunities. I was blessed to not just to be part of the blogger summit, but also host the World Food Championship 6th a
