Who goes to New Orleans for Italian food? I mean, really... who does that? Oh, riiiiight. We do.


The Cocktail Hour

Mark and I just had our second trip to New Orleans and, over the next several weeks, I will be sharing with you some of the culinary delights we enjoyed while there as well as some shots of this beautiful city: something to get you in the mood for Mardi Gras.


A Wedding Cake

Dutch Oven Goodness

Happy New Year! I think you should all know that one of the most fun parts of writing this blog for me (other than knowing you all are reading) is that I learn so much in the process.
