The Rougaroux

If you’re in need of a NOLA fix, I’ve got just the thing for you! Tucked on a side street in Forest Park sits an old house turned restaurant: The Rougaroux. The order-at-the-bar restaurant concept is decorated with a mixture of New Orleans and zombie paraphernalia – quite the combo, let me tell you. But…

Big Bad Breakfast 2.0

I don’t know about you, but I feel like the downtown Homewood area is just booming right now! It’s been so fun to hear of all the new restaurants coming to town. I can’t wait to try them all out! I’ve been getting back into the food blogging thing (ptl, it’s been too long!) and…

Fig Tree Cafe

A true Cahaba Heights treasure, Fig Tree Café sits quietly nestled behind a salon off Cahaba Heights Road. One might wonder what the truly unbelievable smell that overtakes the quaint area behind The Summit. Well, I’m going to let you in on a little secret. The goings on within the four walls of Fig Tree…

We Have Doughnuts

What started as a love for old-fashioned doughnuts has quickly manifested into an Iron City epidemic. We Have Doughnuts has dominated the Birmingham food scene with its perfect combination of crispy yet spongy, melt-in-your-mouth old fashioned doughnut base. In addition to the perfected dough (which was developed from scratch over a period of several months…

Big Bad Breakfast

Big, Bad, and truly a Birmingham gem. I’m embarrassed to admit that even after living here for over four years, I just now gave Big Bad Breakfast a shot. To be honest, I walked in expecting your average breakfast joint, complete with sticky syrup dispensers and menus and bitter coffee, but left in awe of the…

Sprout & Pour

Sprout & Pour is Birmingham’s first cold press juicery and is located in Edgewood, directly across from the antique store. What started as a small farm stand, that appeared at Pepper Place Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings, has grown to be a nutrient haven for the health conscious people of Birmingham. This family owned company takes…

Holler & Dash

Ok, I fan-girled pretty hard this weekend. It’s almost embarrassing how excited I get about trying new restaurants… I was invited to attend the pre-launch tasting event at Holler & Dash, a new biscuit house in Homewood, that is scheduled to launch this Tuesday! The event took place this Saturday, and I took ample notes and…

Real & Rosemary

Yesterday, I had the privilege of attending the soft opening of Real & Rosemary, the newest addition to the Homewood food scene. Jennifer Mims, who is not a stranger to this fast-casual industry, is scheduled to officially launch this brand new restaurant on March 15. Jennifer was raised in a family that valued fresh vegetables and lean…

Catherine’s Market

Weekends on the lake truly are the most relaxing way to unwind and recharge. Since I moved to Birmingham, I was always reminded of this beautiful place called Lake Martin, just eighty miles from Birmingham. This summer, I finally visited and completely fell in love. Evidently, Lake Martin proves to be a perfect getaway, even during…

5 Reasons Why My Dad Changed My Life

  In honor of my sweet dad’s 54th birthday, I wanted to brag on the amazing reasons why my dad is the greatest dad on the planet. Sure, I might be slightly biased, but honestly, on a birthday as anticlimactic as 54, it’s ok by me to break a few rules! Here are some reason why…
