Real & Rosemary

Category: 
From the moment I saw the lovely exterior of this new spot, I knew it was perfection. The mix of southern charm and industrial pieces fits perfectly with the small town of Homewood Alabama. As we walked in to the cafe, we were met with friendly faces and warm greetings. Before I even stepped up to the counter to order my food, a staff member had placed a warm cup of Alabama's own Royal Cup Coffee into my hand. As I sipped, my friend and I decided what food we would order. Everything at Real and Rosemary is whole food options. We had the opportunity to meet Jennifer Mims, one of the owners...

Pepper Place Farmer's Market Periscope

I am finally doing it. I am gathering up all my courage and hosting my first ever Periscope! Tomorrrow morning I will be live at 9:00 AM at The Pepper Place Market in Birmingham . I will be live and this will be my first time.

Let you see some of my favorite farmers and if I'm able to answer any questions you may have. Buying local is a strong passion of mine and we are proud to support Pepper Place...

Paleo Spinach Bacon Salad

I LOVE BACON! Seriously, you guys, I really love bacon. So often, I hear my family members asking me for health advice. They say things like, "I eat pretty healthy, but sometimes I do have bacon." They get this guilty look on thier face apologizing to me for eating bacon. Try as I may to conivince them that bacon is not the enemy we have been trained to think it is... they never seem convinced. We purchase bacon that is ethically sourced and free of added sugars. And we eat it several times a week. Read more here about why healthy fats are so vital to your health! WE SHOULD ALL EAT MORE BACON...

The Abbey: Coffee Shop and So Much More

Category: 
The first time I stepped foot into this lovely establishment located in the heart of the Avondale community, I fell in love. The vibe that greets you is one of warmth, neighborly love, and friendship. I have frequented a few times a month over the last year and loved chatting with Carrie and Noah as they made my whole milk lattes. The Abbey proudly serves a vast array of local products including Red Bike Coffee , Leaf N Petal teas , Bread Works Breads and they make their own pastries and sandwiches in house. Their pimento cheese sandwich is one of my very favorites! In my most recent visit, I...
