One of very favorite things about “food blogging” in Charlotte is the people I meet. Yes, I obviously LOVE to eat and enjoy sharing my experiences with anyone who will listen, but there is a less-talked-about side (but equally important) to this whole thing. And that’s the people. Here’s a little about a group of… Continue reading Celebrating National Culinary Arts Month with CCSC

I tried all five concoctions (only two of them in-full, I swear…)… Continue reading New Summer Cocktails at Ilios Noche
