Meet the Foodies

Meet the Foodies

I’ve always loved to try new foods, learn about new customs and cultures, and meet new people from around the world.  It all starts with my childhood, growing up in a family that is its own little melting pot—a zesty mix of Mexican, Texan, Sudanese, Russian, and Ashkenazi Jewish heritage.  As you might imagine, offerings … Continue reading

We therefore decided to schlep deep into Alpharetta territory to BB’s Bagels for what might be, hands-down, the most perfect bagel in Atlanta: perfectly kettle-boiled and baked, … Continue reading

“In Hungry, Out Happy” at Local Three Brunch

Worth Every Penny at Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams

Worth Every Penny at Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams

Whether it’s a hot new handbag, a fab pair of boots, or a pint of ice cream, we all have our limits on how much we’ll pay, no matter how badly we want it. I stroll the supermarket aisles weekly, eyeing premium products like pricey aged-balsamics, truffle-infused cheeses, and fresh seafood, which I ultimately prefer … Continue reading
