“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.

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...

Magical donuts at Sweet Daze Dessert Bar

I will drive for a good donut. Put some glitter on it, and I’ll travel farther. Give it a unicorn horn or a mermaid tail and I’m pretty much rerouting my day to go try it. The Cupcake and I went on a recognizance mission basically because donuts are our life. We love...

Getting spicy at Razzoos Cajun Cafe!

In partnership with Razzoo's Cajun Cafe! All opinions are my own.  Y’all. I haven’t lived in Louisiana since 1996, but even my short 5 years there gave me a love for Cajun food. It doesn’t hurt that I married a Louisiana guy and get to go back and visit on the...

Get in my belly: Taste of Addison 2017

One of the things I miss most about living in Addison is festival season. There's no better time in Texas than Spring and the Taste of Addison is the perfect way to waste -- or waist -- away a gorgeous afternoon. Great food, plenty of adult beverages, awesome music...

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

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...

Houlihan’s Restaurant Gets Healthier with Inspiralized!

Houlihan's invited me to dinner so that I could taste the featured items on their limited time menu and then tell you about it. All opinions are my own. A few months ago, the hubs and I decided to get healthier. We were both carrying a little extra middle-age around...

Ida Claire Restaurant in Addison – just what the Southern heart needs

Having married a Southerner, I've grown accustomed to the culinary delights that it brings along with it. Sadly Dallas, you have only had flickers of fantastic Southern cuisine -- until now. Ida Claire is so good, you'll leave saying, "Well, I declare, that WAS a...
Pecan Lodge Restaurant Review

Pecan Lodge Restaurant Review

I started thinking about Pecan Lodge the moment I left my meeting downtown at 11 a.m. It was Friday, and that means they’re open. I texted the hubs to see if he wanted to meet me – yep, he was on his way. I strolled into Shed 2 a the Dallas Farmer's Market to see...
