But there are a few things . . . → Read More: 8 Things To Know Before Your First Cruise

Key West Food and Wine Festival: Champagne and Shoe Free

Pouring (and sipping) champagne on the beach. Life doesn’t get better.

Key West Food and Wine Festival springs up at the end of January every year to bring our little town something we desperately need: booze. (That was sarcasm, my friends, as we have plenty of booze and boozy events in Key West; the . . . → Read More: Key West Food and Wine Festival: Champagne and Shoe Free

Key West Food and Wine Festival (Discount Here!)

Everyone has fun at the Key West Food and Wine Festival.

Seven Fish, Key West: New Location, Same Great Food

The folks at Seven Fish, formerly housed on the corner of Olivia and Elizabeth Streets in Key West, bought land and built a shiny new restaurant. Watching the construction, it seemed like it took forever. The restaurant closed in the old location for their annual summer vacation in September and reopened in the new . . . → Read More: Seven Fish, Key West: New Location, Same Great Food

Goodbye, 2016 (And Not a Moment Too Soon)

I’d like more days like this.

Goodbye, 2016. Adios. I wish I could say it has been a pleasure, but… Well, there were certainly some highlights.

Flavors of St. Martin: An Island Food Tour

Over the course of several visits, we had yet to make it to the French side of St. Martin, the half-Dutch, half-French Caribbean island. I knew this was our moment of opportunity. When I saw the Flavors of St. Martin tour in the shore excursion list, I had found how I’d like to spend . . . → Read More: Flavors of St. Martin: An Island Food Tour

It’s Not Too Soon To Give Thanks (Or Eat Turkey)

Thanksgiving is not entirely about the turkey.

Thanksgiving is not just a day. It is a feeling of gratitude, a moment of celebrating the good in our lives and sharing those good feelings with others. It does not matter if that happens on the fourth Thursday of November, or some other time. In this . . . → Read More: It’s Not Too Soon To Give Thanks (Or Eat Turkey)

If Dogs Could Talk: Election Edition

Babka exercises her right to join us in voting.

I can’t speak for others, but I can tell you this: I have an election hangover, and I didn’t even have any wine that night. In retrospect, perhaps that was a poor choice. As the election events were unfolding, Babka started asking some questions. Here . . . → Read More: If Dogs Could Talk: Election Edition

Cheese Souffle: Then, Now, and Coming Soon

From the Le Gavroche website. What the souffle should look like.

Souffles are those delicious, fluffy, eggy dishes that, when made properly, are the best things ever. That is not hyperbole. It is a fact. Toss in some cheese and heavy cream? OMG. The cheese souffle I ate at Le Gavroche when I was . . . → Read More: Cheese Souffle: Then, Now, and Coming Soon

The Day We Only Ate Bagels

Nothing says the morning after a big event, like a wedding or bar mitzvah, quite like a bagel brunch. It’s a great way to gather friends and family before everyone heads out of town or just back to their daily routines. But it takes a special one of these events to turn into an . . . → Read More: The Day We Only Ate Bagels
