Le Bon Appetit 2018

Saturday night, I had the pleasure of attending Le Bon Appetit, an event benefiting Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital.  It completely sold out, and featured over forty local and visiting chefs serving a large array of dishes, as well as craft cocktails by from Memphian mixologists, beer, and wine provided by Southern Glazer’s. After picking up … More Le Bon Appetit 2018

Foodie Friday #6

My menu this week featured a lot of salads and fresh veggies to keep it clean in preparation for some events I had to attend this weekend.  I also recently started a new gym routine, and wanted to stay away from anything too processed, too sugary, etc. for a while.  It’s working so far! I’ve … More Foodie Friday #6

After a meeting downtown one morning, I wound up at Court Square, and found … More Foodie Friday #4

One night, I unearthed a pack of Helen’s Kitchen Veggie Carnitas from the freezer.  I sauteed it with some sweet onions, and … More Foodie Friday #3
