30 Restaurants: Angelo Brocato’s & Harbor Seafood

Angelo Brocato I had to wait to write this post because I had to go back a second time because I didn’t get what I intended to on the first trip. I really need to go a third time and try something else. Angelo’s is a well-known Italian dessert shop with gelato, coffee, cookies, cannoli,…

30 Restaurants: Dooky Chase & Drip Affogato

Part of my journey to 30 is to eat my way through 30 restaurants/eateries that I’ve never been to that either just seem like an interesting place or have been raved about by other people. The first two places I scratched off my list of 30 restaurants were visited for my birthday back in August.…

When life give you lemons…make curd…and then make a pie

A fellow dancer brought two large boxes of citrus to one of our last rehearsals of 2016: meyer lemons and oranges. I’m not a huge citrus fan; my husband on the other hand will eat 2-3 oranges at a time, and since he was sick at the time, I loaded my bag with oranges. I…

However, I usually…

There’s…

GF Chocolate Mug Cake

I often have cravings for sweet baked goods, and given that I’m not really adept at gluten free baking (I’d gotten pretty good at baking with regular flour), and most recipes call for 7 different flours that all cost mad money, I’ve resorted to looking up those little chocolate mug cakes to satisfy small cravings.…

Paleo Week 1

It’s been a difficult week only in the sense of it being Super Bowl/Mardi Gras and I’m always being invited to eat out. In New Orleans, sometimes it’s near impossible to find food that isn’t fried, breaded, come with bread, come with some other grain, or have some type of dairy. Sometimes it means I…

Blackberry Clafouti

Wholefoods had (is having) a sale on blackberries, so I bought up a bunch. But they’ve been sitting in my fridge, and I know how I buy things with good intentions to do something with them and never do until part of it starts to mold. Shame. So this time I caught myself before any…
