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”
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.
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”.
So, it was a holiday and Kevin and I couldn’t find a nice spot to eat a delicious breakfast. Magnolia Pancake Haus had a 2 hour wait and The Bread Box was closed. (Which we still have yet to try) So Eggspectation it was. This franchise first started in Montreal, Canada and although it is a franchise, I honestly had never heard of it. We walk in and it was quite a bit of a wait, but it was oh so worth it. One of the most fancy and modern breakfast and brunch spots I’ve ever seen. We spent the 30 minute wait drooling over all the items on the menu and before we knew it, it was time to be sat.
January 24th marked a year since I started my blog. I’ve been able to share so much advice and recipes with you guys and it just makes me happy to know how much support I have. I’m up to 1,004 followers which is way more than I’d ever thought I’d have by now. Thank you for visiting my blog for the last year! I did take a small break of blogging for the past few weeks. I’m telling you, this third trimester sure is kicking my butt, but I’m back and ready for action!
When it comes to lamb, Kevin and I usually do chops or steaks. We got some natural grass fed lamb scallopini cuts from our local meat market to try something new. Pasta was the plan and we made it happen. It was a delicious linguine, topped with seared lamb scallopini, tossed in a light lemon butter garlic sauce. Here is how we did it.
