Publix Does it Again

In a land where Kroger is King, it's nice to know that there's always Publix just beyond the self-imposed drive time limit we've established for grocery shopping. So what if it's an extra four miles past the nearest Kroger - Publix has waaaaay better organic selections, the environs are gleamingly pristine, and the employees must have kick-ass benefits or something because they are always exceedingly helpful and kind.

I hate to think we'll see less of Publix once the Trader Joe's opens in Green Hills. Now, I know that driving to Green Hills will surely cause our drive time limit to implode and forever be damned. But it's the almighty TJ's! We just can't help ourselves. Anyone know when they're opening? Last I heard, they predicted a Thanksgiving date.

But back to Publix. They recently added a Rachel's line of natural yogurt to their dairy section and may I just say to all the yogurt fans out there, get yo self to Publix and gitchu some of this stuff - it's a little out-there when compared to most pedestrian yogurt like Dannon and Yoplait. Think Vanilla Chai and Plum Lavender Honey flavors. Think heavenly dairy products you're going to want 24/7.

So you heard it here - Rachel's brand of yogurt -available at your nearest Publix. You're welcome.


  1. I love Rachel's and I love the buy one get one free coupons from their site! :D


  2. Hold the phone - you say BOGO coupon for this fabulous yogurt?
    YES! I am so there.
    Thanks for the tip, J!

Friends with Benefits: Meet EV Originals

I love that feeling when a friend accomplishes something wonderful.

Maybe because I'm a only child and thus friends often feel like family, or maybe it's just because we all need a little more raising up these days.

So when I heard that a friend from the Nashville, TN area who co-founded and operates a catering business decided to share her culinary talents with the masses and create a line of bottled products, EV Originals, I did a big ol' happy dance.

Some Like It Hot -- And Toasted on Both Sides

The latest news in appliances seems to indicate there's no love for the good ol' traditional Crock-Pot.
Fictional drama aside, the slow cooker most of us grew up with is receiving some healthy competition from the new hot thing, the Instapot
But in our house, we're having a face-off with a completely different category of kitchen appliances -- it's the Toaster vs Toaster Oven.

The Best Way to Keep Cannoli Fresh and Other Baltimore Stories

My mom and step-dad were up visiting for Thanksgiving and after gorging ourselves on turkey and the sites of D.C., I took them on a day-trip to Baltimore.

After a visit to my mom's favorite museum (she's a mosaic artist), we aimed for lunch at Rocket to Venus in Hampden. It was closed for lunch, but our trip up Charles St. wasn't for naught - we stumbled onto residents of 34th St. setting up their Christmas displays! This street is Christmas at its best, or worst, depending on your tolerance/interest in all things Christmas. Erin teases me for being a scrooge, but I have to admit, lights and what-not are nice at this cold and dark time of year.

After a brief walk through Hampden, we aimed for lunch at Kooper's Tavern in Fells Point. The tavern was most certainly open, with rowdy sports fans packing the bar and even spilling onto the sidewalk for fresh-shucked oysters. (My friend Gideon would have camped out right there for their Chincoteagues!) After some deliberati…
