Excited about #Song opening in +Seaside July 1, 2014! Asian Style Street food finally comes to #SouthWaltonDining! #30AEATS   +Visit South Walton  +VISIT FLORIDA +Gulf Coast Jam +GulfCoastRestaurants.com 
I have lived in the area a very long time, just streets from Seaside where I raised my children, and I can honestly say that on more than 50 occasions, I have longed for some kind, any kind of good Asian street style food to be within a five mile radius of my home. I'm singing a a happy tune these days thanks to Seaside, Florida who welcomes the Southest Asian street food truck Sóng to its famous Airstream Row! Sóng actually means wave in Vietnam...

Recently I was offered the opportunity to work with Driscoll's Berries via The Daily Meal, and was asked to come up with a short cake recipe. Well, the first Strawberry Cake of any kind that popped into my mind was my ex-husband's wife Sherry's beautifully presented Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Cake! Every time I host a birthday party or family function, this is the cake that we beg her to bring. The kids love it, my father asked for it on his mos...

Easy weekend Breakfast for dinner or brunch option!

+HONEST COOKING +Kalle Bergman 
Breakfast. My favorite meal of the day, my husbands least. I love the creativity that evolves when cooking with eggs, and that they are packed with protein. In an agreement I made with myself, I prepared or cooked my son and daughter breakfast every single morning from birth until graduation from high school, including weekends, with the exception of an overnight stay away at a friend house, or when visiting their grandparents. As my two grew, th...

If you +Visit South Walton make sure to stop by #30AEATs  favorite #KaraBoo Bakery in Miramar Beach , Florida! Savory and Sweet pastries abound! A Delicious way to start the morning or celebrate with family and friends! 

+Jessica Proffitt +South Walton +Visit South +GulfCoastRestaurants.com +VISIT FLORIDA  #LOVEFL  
Kara Boo started out as an at-home venture for professional pastry chef Kara Enache, but it quickly grew into a successful and award-winning bakery. Though husband Boo’s background is in corporate finance, Kara says, “He quickly picked up pastry techniques and has a passion for cooking and baking. He does a lot of research and is a real natural.” Once the Miramar Beach location was set, Boo joined Kara at KaraBoo Bakery, and together they create ...

+Jordan Copeland +Jan Walsh +Richard Phillips +Seagrove Beach Rentals +*****  +30A Songwriters Festival +South Walton Beaches 30A Area Florida Real Estate +360 Blue, LLC +Alys Beach 
The Seagrove Village MarketCafe dates back to 1949 where generations of families and guests returned year after year to dine, purchase necessities, souvenirs and experience life on the beach. George and Ann Hartley purchased the cafe in 1998 filled with hidden treasures buried in the nooks and crannies of the restaurant. They located Junie McGee's 1977 cookbook, wife of Seagrove's developer, and Ann was thrilled to see recipes from her time growi...

  Last weekend I had Drunken Shrimp Taco's at Cowgirl Kitchen in Rosemary Beach and it reminded me of how much I love those spicy and fresh Gulf flavors all infused together and wrapped in a taco, yum! I use to cook all of the time when my family was under one roof, but due to the sale of our home on 30A this past fall, our current situation has us spread from Pensacola and Destin, to two at out of state colleges in Alabama and Georgia. I'm supe...
