Give & Take

Over the past 10 years, I have written about hundreds of New Orleans restaurants, either here on my blog or in publications like Where Y’at Magazine, FrenchQuarterJournal.com, Louisiana Kitchen & Culture, New Orleans Living Magazine, etc. I’ve shared thousands of my amateur photos of local foodstuffs on Instagram, Facebook and […]

Making Do

John and I were planning on celebrating Mardi Gras and Valentine’s Day at a festive brunch in the Botanical Gardens yesterday, but when it was cancelled, we found ourselves at a loss . . . but not for long! With a quick text and a willingness to wait in line, […]
