Epicurious Louisville

Louisville Kentucky is a treasure trove of amazing eats. I blog about them here. Y'all pull up a chair and sit awhile.

Summer in Louisville: frozen yogurt from Dairy Kastle (with a hard butterscotch shell, so good I can’t even stand it) and this teeny little guy. 

Life is so beautiful sometimes I just don’t have words for it. 

Gorgeousness from my weekend bike ride in Southern Indiana. Big blue skies, long stretches of black top, sunshine on my shoulders. Who could ask for more?

I visited the New Albany Farmer’s Market this past weekend and perused the fresh bread, locally made cheese, bath products and produce. A lovely, well-attended Farmer’s Market with tons of reasonably-priced local goods:  I can’t say enough nice things about it. 

I get a lot of flack for living in Southern Indiana, but I love it. It’s quieter, life is a little slower, people are more simple. And the vegetables are better. Sorry, they just are.

In honor of AMERICA here’s every cheeseburger currently on my phone.

GOD BLESS THE USA!

Anonymous asked: Do you know what Southside Quarry's hours are going to be for 4th of July Weekend? Are they going to allow camping one night of this weekend?

Check their Facebook page :) I know they have a big blowout planned. Food trucks, floating, lots of fun.

Would it be so bad, really, if I just washed up and didn’t ever do anything useful again and drank artisan cocktails exclusively for the rest of my life?

krystinrobertson asked: This thought just came to me, and I am not sure if you will have an answer. Have you ever ordered strawberry shortcake from a restaurant, or do you know if any restaurant has it? I am seriously craving some. If you do know of any place or places, who, in your opinion has the best? Also, what about tres leches? I have had that from Chuy's, and it is my absolute favorite. I woke up with desserts on my brain for whatever reason, so I thought I would ask. Haha!

Actually I don’t know who serves a good strawberry shortcake, but I bet I have followers that know!

As for tres leches, probably Guaca Mole is your best best.

Honestly one of my dirty little culinary secrets is that I’m extraordinarily good at baking the exact kind of desserts I can’t eat, so I make the best strawberry shortcake in the world and thus all other strawberry shortcakes fall short.

It’s because when I was younger, we had this giant strawberry field and we picked them to sell. And if my parents sent me to bed without dinner (which as you can imagine was the worst possible punishment for me) I would just sneak out the window, pick strawberries and eat them in my closet while I read with a flashlight. So I have many strawberry memories.

Anyway now that I’ve rambled for way too long…followers, any suggestions?
