Jerusalem Restaurant a Hit!

Following up on my previous post, I'm thrilled to report that Jerusalem Restaurant on Church St. was a hit yesterday. Their buffet was plentiful, aromatic and had a nice variety of veggies and tasty meat dishes.

I doctored my hummus with salt quite heavily, but it's some of the best I've had thus far in Nashville. The roasted veggies were awesome and indeed caramelized goodness - thanks for the tip, Carrington Fox - and their falafel was crisp and exactly what I hoped for. They also had a shepard salad of chopped cucumber, tomatoes and herbs that perfectly complemented all the warm offerings.

Now another friend and I are trying Bombay Garden on Nolensville Road - can't get enough of the ethnic food this week. We're truly lucky in Nashville to have diversity in our cuisine - however, a greater acceptance of the immigrant community here has a ways to go. I for one think diversity is delicious!

Friends with Benefits: Meet EV Originals

I love that feeling when a friend accomplishes something wonderful.

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…
