“One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.” – Luciano Pavarotti

Can I please just eat my way across DFW? Trying out new menus and venues is a treat. Join me on my epicurious journey across North Texas’ restaurants, coffee shops, eateries, and cafes.

The Best Independent Coffee Shops in North Texas

The Best Independent Coffee Shops in North Texas

I dare you to spot me out in the wild without a cup of coffee in my hand (unless it's after 5 and then you know, we switch to wine). Oh how I luuuuv a great cup of coffee. It's my eternal wish to be able to replicate that coffee house taste at home -- and trust me,...

Go get your nerd on at Frisco’s Nerdvana

Coffee junkie. That’s what I should have tattooed on my butt. I don’t (yet), but on most days you can find me with a go-cup of java in hand. It’s like my Lady Liberty torch. And if 3 p.m. rolls around and I don’t have a coffee infusion, mama won’t make it through...

Hurts Donuts in Frisco is Open!

I felt like such a jerk. I mean, I bought the Hurts Donuts shirt as a fast pass to the front for opening day... but apparently not everyone was aware of that incredible time-saving promotion. So the shivering people in line which was wrapped outside the building were...

Studio Movie Grill’s new menu

Studio Movie Grill’s new menu

We've been in such a movie rut. It seems like just aligning our schedules for family movie night takes so much effort that we end up just climbing the stairs to our movie room and settling for movies that are many months old. And half the time, I lose interest just...

Hey, I found this new kid-friendly restaurant in Dallas. They make and hand-stretch their pizza dough to make thin and crispy pizza crust everyday in-house. I really like their tangy BBQ chicken pizza with peppers, crispy onions on top and more BBQ drizzle, but my...
