SLC brunch scene . . . When it comes to baked goods and coffee shop scenes, Tulie Bakery in Salt Lake City’s 9th and 9th district is a favorite. They serve breakfast, lunch and have a display case full of homemade pastries, tiered cakes and everyday treats. There’s something for everyone.
Molly Moon ice cream . . . Have you ever tried honey lavender flavored ice cream? Until our recent trip to Molly Moon’s, I hadn’t either. Slightly sweet and surprisingly refreshing, it was one of the best desserts I’ve had in a really long time.
Homegrown . . . Last month, we celebrated Jake’s birthday in Seattle. It was a weekend packed with good food, good company and the best Seahawks home game we could have asked for. While in town, we had to make a stop at Homegrown. Their breakfast sandwiches are Jake’s favorite.
Marination Ma Kai . . . We spent our weekend in Seattle, celebrating Jake’s birthday and sampling some of the city’s tastiest grub. The combination of street tacos and malted vinegar French fries may not feel like an obvious choice. I’ll admit I had my doubts. But, this kind of Hawaiian-Korean fusion definitely works.
Dinner at Roscoe’s . . . Since meeting Jake, I’ve heard a lot about the fried chicken and waffles they serve at Roscoe’s. He LOVES this place, and he’d eat there multiple times a day if he could. Now that I’ve been, I get it. This soul food is worth every bit of hype.
Craftsmen Kitchen for dinner . . . One of our last stops in Charleston was to grab dinner. We came across Craftsmen, a local hot-spot known for seasonal produce, handmade sausages and weekly specials like big bowls of Ramen. Could late night grub get any better?
Lunch at Husk . . . Lunch at Husk Restaurant was one of the highlights from my recent trip to Charleston. It’s been on my to-eat-at list for quite some time, and I’m thrilled to say that dining for one never tasted so good.
A Palm Springs milkshake . . . It’s been weeks since my trip to Palm Springs, but I can’t stop thinking about this chocolate, peanut butter and banana shake. Did I mention that it’s my all time favorite flavor combination?
