Carriage Crossing Restaurant + Cookbook giveaway!

June 28, 2011

A group of Bengali people walk into an Amish restaurant . . . Oh you haven’t heard that one?  Well, let me assure you it ends very well.  With full tummies all around. Mr. Spice and I were in Wichita at the end of April for a friend’s wedding and to visit my parents.  While […]

Eating our way through Asheville, NC

May 31, 2011

Mr. Spice and I just spent the nicest little weekend up in Asheville, NC. I’ve been wanting to do a quick weekend get-away for a while now,  somewhere within a few hours’ driving distance so that we could leave after work on a Friday and come back on a Sunday afternoon.  I decided on Asheville […]

Mediterranean Grill – Wichita, KS

May 11, 2011

One of things I have come to appreciate about growing up in Wichita is its multicultural diversity. Among the various ethnic communities, the Lebanese community is one of the oldest and largest and its influence is very apparent around the city.  Especially when it comes to the Mediterranean restaurants in town.  It was here that […]

It’s Six-o de Mayo!

May 6, 2011

What? So I missed a Cinco de Mayo post, but I bet not a lot of people are doing six-o de Mayo posts! Even though a 4-day week is a 4-day week, to me it seems like they’re rougher when you have a day off on Monday, feels like the rest of the week is […]

Taking out the in-laws: Anatolia Mediterranean Cuisine, Orlando FL

April 26, 2011

My honor was at stake. The last time we visited Mr. Spice’s parents, we spontaneously decided to go out for dinner one night.  Our first choice was this vegetarian Indian restaurant that serves dosas, which we all love.  However, everyone else must have had the same idea, because the line was out the door and […]

A Season of Convenience

March 15, 2011

That sounds like a romance novel title, doesn’t it? 🙂 As you know, it’s tax time and that’s when I do my usual disappearing act.  I also rely more on convenience foods because it’s just one less thing to have to think about.   I make no apologies for it, this is what works for Mr. […]

Mirage Persian Cuisine – Take 2!

January 11, 2011

I am ridiculously behind on my blog posts, but the goal is to catch up as much as possible this week! When my parents came to visit us over Christmas weekend, we were very lucky to be able to celebrate the 35th anniversary of their engagement! Their 35th wedding anniversary was later that week and […]

Sneak peek at Chickfila’s new spicy chicken biscuit!

January 3, 2011

You know I love my Chickfila.  So much that I moved to the South to be closer to it.  Oh no wait, it was because Mr. Spice and I got hitched.  But lucky for him that this is Chickfila central!  🙂 Anyway, back in June, Chickfila improved on a good thing by offering their new […]

A Taste of China: Xi’an Eats

December 9, 2010

Have I whetted your appetite for our Xi’an eats?  I hope so?  Just looking at some of the pics brings back memories and makes me wish I could go back for one last taste. Our first meal in Xi’an was not Chinese food — it was Japanese! Just outside where the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda […]

Mirage Persian Cuisine

November 13, 2010

I cannot tell you how many times I’ve had the following conversation with friends or with my husband when deciding where to go for dinner: “Where should we go?” “I don’t know, I’m up for anything.” “Yeah, me too.  Well, I just had (insert any restaurant/cuisine) so anything but that.” “Okay.” “So, what sounds good?” […]
