Contributor: Ginger Sayor (my sister)   On this Memorial Day that tugs at emotions for a number of reasons, I gratefully decided to channel my heart into making something with leftover boiled peanuts purchased on a trip home to Miramar Beach a couple of weeks ago. My parents and I stood over a large bucket at the local Winn Dixie, sifting through the best green peanuts we could find, so that I could take them home in my suitcase after a wor...

GulfCoastRestaurants.com Contributor If Kiawah Island Resort and The Sanctuary Hotel were across the globe, I would travel the world to arrive here. This is our second trip to Kiawah Island, and I do not plan for it to be our last—as it is one of the most special places I have ever visited, and it is true Southern. Approaching the Island, branches of enormous trees dripping with Spanish moss reach across the road on both sides, making a canopy of...

Read blogger Erin Browne's account of traveling to +Rosemary Beach, Florida and dining at +Cowgirl Kitchen! #RosemaryBeach   #30AEATS   +Jennifer Green +30A #Food #Travel 
Contributor's: Erin and Matt Browne are the faces behind Brownie Bites: They visited Old Seagrove Beach, Florida and spent a lot of time enjoying the town of Seaside and 30A. Below is one account. After a full day of beachin’ and driving over to Destin for some outlet shopping, we were hungry.  And I don’t mean the, “Yeah, it’s dinnertime and I could eat,” kind of hungry… I mean the kind of hungry where you might end up killing your beloved spous...

Bud & Alley’s: Where Unpretentious Gulf Coast Cuisine Reigns Supreme- Dave Rauschkolb, an avid poker player, took a big gamble the day he and friend Scott Witcoski said, “Yes!” to Robert Davis when asked to open a restaurant in Seaside.  In those days Scenic 30-A was just a quiet coastal road and Seaside a lonely outpost.  It was 1985 and Davis approached Witcoski, a seasoned chef at 24, and Rauschkolb, a marketing and management student who wait...

#New #Recipe! Are you heads on or heads off? I'm team heads... but my guest wanted them off, so I obliged. Heads on keeps the Barbecue Shrimp juicer and enhances the flavor. I always buy head on fresh shrimp and clean them once home. A +Visit Baton Rouge trip, and a stop at +Red Stick Spice Co, led to us indulging several times on this +Louisiana Culinary delicacy! +Anne Milneck +Christy Chachere +Katie Guasco  #GoBR   #30AEATS  +Louisiana Cajun Recipes  #GulfCoast  
If my heart could take it, I would probably eat Barbecue Shrimp at least twice a week, but I will admit that not a month goes by where this family staple is not on our dinner table. Cooking the shrimp with the heads on preserves the natural juices and enhances the flavor, but on occasion (usually by request), I remove the heads before cooking. I never buy shrimp without the head on, as they are the freshest. On my recent trip to Visit Baton Rouge...
