Sternewirth + Cured At Pearl

20180329_192105
It was a Thursday evening,  Kevin and I had a scheduled Yelp Elite event. He got caught up at work and had to stay late. With traffic and all, it looked like we were going to be super DUPER late. So we just kept driving to head down to The Pearl Brewery. After about 30 to 40 minutes in San Antonio traffic, we made it. We parked and walked around to decide where we were gonna have dinner. A Thursday night date is what it turned into and it was awesome! Continue reading “Sternewirth + Cured At Pearl”

My Surprise Breakfast Date at Cafezinho + The Update

  So, Friday was date night so Royce spent the night at his grandparent’s house.  The next morning Kevin kept this super secret about where we were gonna go for breakfast.  I got all dolled up and off we went.  We drove out of our neighborhood and made our way towards the highway.  Or did we?  Nope, Kevin stopped right there at this cute cafe called Cafezinho.  We’ve passed by it multiple times because we literally live down the street.  It always looked pretty busy on the outside and I’ve always wanted to try it.  So here we were!  Cafezinho is a small cafe and restaurant located in Selma, TX that is family owned.  Everyone there was so friendly and ensured our breakfast experience was great.

Crispy Skin Cilantro-Lime Chicken Thighs

Not to toot my own horn, but I’m pretty sure I make some of the best crispy skin chicken thighs in the oven.  I know this recipe like the back of my hand, so its always fun for me to branch out and try something new with it.  Usually I brine the thighs in heavy salt water and other various seasonings.  This time, I made a marinade.  I wanted to make a Mexican dish, so I created a cilantro lime and garlic marinade for the chicken to bathe in.  Tender dark meat with some of the crispiest skin you’ll ever sink your teeth into, it can’t get any better than this.

Snooze A.M. Eatery

This bright and retro Denver-based chain has made it’s way to San Antonio! Boy it’s magnificent.  Snooze A.M. Eatery is an eclectic breakfast and brunch joint that started it’s journey in Denver, Colorado back in 2006.  What I loved most about this place is that the ingredients are all organic and come from local companies and farmers.  It opened it’s doors at the Quarry Market on March 1st, and on March 2nd we showed up and enjoyed the service of the “Snoozers”.
