Sullivan's Island in South Carolina is by far our favorite vacation spot. We rent a house on the ocean. This time the house we rented is absolutely spectacular. Sullivan's Island gives you the best of both worlds. You have the ocean to enjoy but you also have the proximity of the big city, Charleston.
Poe's is a wonderful bar grill with great food. I've never had a bad meal there. It's fun in the warmer months because you can sit at the bar inside or outside.
This time we came with friends and family to watch the football game. My aunt ordered a burger and I ordered fish tacos. They looked so good we decided to share. It was way too much food but it was absolutely delicious.
The burger was topped with a wonderfully creamy blue cheese and buffalo shrimp. The fish taco had a citrus marinated mahi mahi fish with shredded cabbage. If you're ever in the neighborhood check it out, you won't be disappointed!
Food is so intriguing. I’ve always loved to cook whether it’s casual and simple or complicated and elegant. After living in the Midwestern United States all my life I find myself jumping between All-American foods and foods from other cultures. There is definitely a sense of comfort with cooking and enjoying food that I’ve grown up with.
I have a voracious curiosity to learn about all cultures, especially the Middle East/Mediterranean, Indian, Chinese, Vietnamese, and Thai foods. I’ve learned that a simple curry dish or an Asian dumpling can transform your mood and be just as much of a comfort food as the foods you’ve known you’re whole life.
It is fascinating to me how each culture has such a diversity of ingredients, and when used with different combinations and cooking techniques you can easily transform the same few ingredients into a multitude of dishes. The unfamiliar, the diverse ingredients and techniques, can be intimidating to many people. I’ve created this blog to chronicle and share my explorations in the kitchen so that hopefully you will want to start experimenting in your kitchen.
