This past Saturday marked my third time attending Hogs for the Cause and my second time to judge.

Super Bowl Sunday Brunch: Atchafalaya

February 11, 2013

When I was growing up, Super Bowl Sunday was never a huge deal to me. If the Aints Saints weren’t playing (which they weren’t) I guess I didn’t really care. But on February 7, 2010 that all changed.

Beautiful Christmas tree at Eat New Orleans on Dumaine. Hey there! Long time no see! First off, let me apologize for failing to keep all of you up to date on my dining adventures.

Meatless Mondays: Little Korea

October 8, 2012

Considering my love for Vietnamese, Japanese, and Thai cuisine, I was really excited to finally try Korean. With very few Korean restaurants to choose from in the Greater New Orleans area, it was especially surprising to hear that the best of them is located in a building that used to be a Taco Bell.
