Queen Bee Cupcakes – Seaside

You ever have one of those days where nothing seems to be going right? The day I discovered Queen Bee Cupcakes started off being one of those. The first sign that I was in trouble came from the weather. Since the farmer’s market is a good 45 minutes away I had to get up early and leave just after sunrise, yet when I was getting ready to go, it was still dark out. Upon further review, it was storming out… and not one of those nice little showers, I’m talking gale force winds here, people. Oh well, I needed to get milk and eggs and by Jove I was going!

Kitchen Witch’s Whoopie Pies

Today is Food Geekery’s One Year Anniversary! Yep, one year ago today this site came online (though it wasn’t completely live for a couple of months) and over 70 articles later we’re still going strong! I really want to thank all my readers and twitter followers for being so great as I stumble around the world of food. I still have absolutely no idea what I’m doing, but I’m learning a lot and that’s the most important thing! When it came to today, I wasn’t going to do anything special to celebrate, but then, what’s this? Continue reading

Jennifer James 101 – Albuquerque

So my job sends me away to do site installations every so often and it takes me around the country to places I would have never stopped on my own… because vacations are expensive. While on these trips I am given a set amount of money to eat with… as long as these meals are “free” I make it a point to enjoy some really good local cuisine based on things I’ve heard or seen on the internet, TV, and word of mouth. Continue reading

A more stout chicken soup

It was Monday night after a long trip, I hadn’t gone shopping and suddenly it dawned on me: “I need something for lunch, tomorrow!” This wasn’t good. I didn’t want to leave the house as I was feeling very lazy and I didn’t even know what I needed. Nope, this time I’d be eating whatever I could create from my pantry and fridge. It was my own hellish version of “Chopped.” Continue reading

Gravel Road – Seagrove Beach

Back in Omaha we had a favorite breakfast place… Bailey’s. I know I never officially reviewed them, but they were awesome… in fact, the last day we were in Omaha we started off breakfast there, as we did at least a few times a month. I ended up taking photos for a review, so look to one in the future once I gather all my thoughts. Anyway, back to the review at hand. Ever since arriving in Florida, Jess and I have been on a quest to find a great breakfast place as Jess loves breakfast to death. I would say it is probably her favorite meal of the day… if prepared right. So when I was pointed to the breakfast at the Gravel Road restaurant (by one of their sous chefs, no less) while wandering the Farmer’s Market as usual, never being one to hesitate, I finished up my shopping and headed right over. I grabbed an order of biscuits and gravy to go for Jess and ran back home. Continue reading

Chili – Mark I

Nothing helps fix a cold day quite like a bowl of chili, you know? The weather here in Northern Florida continues to stay in the 30’s and 40’s so I needed something pretty warm to keep me going throughout the day as well as fill me up right. I was digging around my spice cabinet and decided that I would make chili, but instead of using a recipe or “chili powder,” I’d go ahead and make the whole thing from scratch and winging the whole thing. I admit, this could have gone horribly wrong, but amazingly it came out great. Continue reading
