Brunch Date at Bodega Ultima

I hate to admit that I’ve become that person who orders the same one or two things every time we go to a restaurant but when it’s consistently good, it’s sort of hard to switch things up! This time I had the Basque, a croissant with egg, tomato, avocado and chorizo and Alex ordered the Ultima (more or less the same breakfast sandwich but with bacon and an amazing aioli sauce).

The Hive

One of my favorite things about the Hive is that they frequently host tap takeover nights. Unlike a traditional bar, they have 70+ beers on taps with handcrafted cocktails, wine, and sodas too. During a tap takeover, a brewery will come in and have several taps dedicated to their selection.

15 Healthy Weeknight Meal Ideas

I’ve been making lots of fresh food at home the past couple of weeks! Most of these recipes have come from Pinterest. I try to plan out our meals once a week and I am guilty of using Kroger Click List at this point in my pregnancy. We’re currently eating low sodium with as little processed food as possible (we make exceptions for whole wheat pasta, multigrain bread, and ice cream sometimes to satisfy those cravings).

Hot New Restaurants in Charleston this Spring

At the beginning of this month we had the opportunity to go on a mini babymoon to Charleston. It was probably our first and last real vacation before baby bee arrives in August. We managed to fit in quite a bit of eating between our preparations for A Charleston Affair, the College of Charleston’s signature Spring alumni event, and a day at the beach. Here are a few new-to-us restaurants we were able to try out over our quick weekend getaway!

Brunch at Hammond's Ferry Larder

Tucked away at the entrance of Hammond's Ferry, a new urbanist community in North Augusta, SC, you'll find a project from Manuel Verney-Carron called Hammond's Ferry Larder. Hammond's Ferry Larder, or HF Larder, as it's affectionately known, offers lunch and dinner options with brunch on Saturday mornings.

French Press Brew Guide

Have you ever wondered how to use a French Press? While it's not always our go-to method of brewing coffee at home, we do pull out our French Press from time to time. Since I mentioned how I was able to whiten coffee stained teeth at home in my last blog post, I thought I'd stick with the coffee theme for this week by sharing our French Press recipe!

Arts in the Heart of Augusta

During the second weekend of September each year (which is, undoubtedly, the hottest weekend before the Fall season arrives), Downtown Augusta is home to the Arts in the Heart of Augusta Festival. Arts in the Heart is a three-day festival that celebrates global arts, food, and culture. There are various stages scattered throughout the core of downtown Augusta that highlight music, spoken word poetry, acting, and more. The Global Village located in the Augusta Common highlights food from over twenty different countries.

Easy Mason Jar Meals

Meal prep is a relatively new concept to us. We haven't been consistently preparing breakfasts and lunches ahead of time, but I thought I'd share three easy Mason jar meals that you can make ahead of time to eat for breakfast or lunch throughout the week. When we do make the time to meal prep, it usually takes an hour or two on a Sunday afternoon to get everything cut and assembled. While it takes a little bit of forethought, it saves us time and money week over week and we usually consume a lot fewer calories because we aren't tempted by the convenience of grabbing a fast food meal to go.
