Cookie Night

March 14, 2018

ebb + flow :: cookie night

Last Friday was spent alongside a dear friend of mine meal prepping the night away! It. Was. Awesome. And one of the many goodies I was sent home with was a big bag of pre-made cookie dough scooped into perfect cookie portions (I may have eaten a couple raw on the way home…oops!). After yesterday’s funk I think tonight calls for busting a few of those out for a proper baking and glass of milk.

NOLA Eats

May 2, 2016

ebb + flow :: NOLA eats

Last week, between a conference, long walks and some serious rain there were a TON of good eats to be had. Seriously, A TON. It was so gluttonous, so good and now I need to go work out. But, before I do, let’s relive some of the tastes of New Orleans.

Top left :: Mother’s Restaurant
This place runs like a well-oiled machine. A go-to spot for their famous baked ham, but I opted for the Ferdi Special.

Top center and right, middle right, bottom left :: Coquette
We stopped in on Tuesday and were surprised by ‘no menu Tuesday’ so our dinner became a five-course tasting menu feast, complete with wine pairing! The butternut squash gnocchi was my favorite but so much goodness course after course.

Middle left :: Peche Seafood Grill
Get the Louisiana Shrimp Roll and the Brussels Sprouts. Now!

Middle center :: The Royal House
Go with the ‘Taste of New Orleans’ for lunch. A sampling of jambalaya, gumbo and crawfish etouffee. The crawfish was easily my favorite! 

Bottom center :: Oceana Grill
A hearty meal was needed after a hearty Hurricane cocktail from Pat O’Brien’s and this place did the trick.

Bottom right :: Cafe Du Monde
Beignets. All day. Every day.

Life Lately

February 22, 2016

ebb + flow :: life lately

The fact that the end of February is nearing has me in a tizzy. So much to do, so little time but we all know how that goes. I realized I hadn’t done a life dump (a la Instagram snaps) lately so I give you some recent scenes from my adventures and a little background on each:

Book Club Brunch

February 12, 2016

ebb + flow :: skinnytaste egg bake

I’m a serious meal planner so when I was looking ahead to next week and the book club brunch I’m hosting the wheels started turning. Thankfully the Pinterest gods brought this recipe to my attention and the wheels didn’t have to search for too long! I’ll report back on how it turns out but I have a feeling this feta spinach artichoke egg bake is going to be a new fave! I might just have to try it this weekend to be sure. Have a good one, friends!
