Downtown Provo street tacos . . . If you’re not careful, you could easily miss this new-to-me joint. Brasas Mexican Grill is a few blocks south of Center Street, and it serves up the tastiest tacos. My brother introduced us the last time my parents were in town, and I can’t stop dreaming about this delicious spread. They serve…
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.
Local market finds . . . I’m a sucker for a local market, and Urban Farm & Feed is no exception. This time of the year, it’s packed with Utah farm apples and locally sourced pumpkins. Plus, they fry up apple cider donuts every Friday. There really is no better way to celebrate fall.
Liberty Heights Fresh . . . It’s the perfect spot to grab some locally sourced produce, sip on a specialty soda or taste test all the finest in terms of cheese. And, did I mention the displays? I’m still in awe of this dreamy little haunt.
Alamexo lunch date . . . My favorite dates always include tacos, homemade tomatillo salsa and fresh guacamole. This eatery in downtown Salt Lake City serves up just that + a good bit more.
Harvesting honey . . . Over the weekend, we prepped our bees for winter and harvested our first batch of honey. It was a labor of love, made up of multiple hours and lots of sticky fingers.
Stanley Brand . . . Over the weekend, we headed up to the family cabin to celebrate my father-in-law’s birthday. It was the perfect excuse to sip some hot chocolate and take in the scenery while trailgating.
Ruth’s Diner . . . Just up Emigration Canyon, this place has been a local favorite since the 1930s. It’s classic, quaint and has all the makings of a cozy spot for lunch.
