After many lovely dinner experiences at Miller Union, I finally made it over for lunch and got to indulge in the wonder that is the house-made ice cream sandwich.
It was everything I’d dreamed it would be and more.
Q+DD: It’s only available at lunch and the flavors change daily. For example: Peanut-Almond Toffee, Georgia Strawberry, Vanilla Brown Sugar, etc. DELISH!
and just check out the photo I
ripped off borrowed from the website:
Bonus: They’re wrapped just like the ones your mom used to give you as a kid. So basically – your treat has evolved with your taste buds. I like everything about that.
Worth. Every. Calorie.
I couldn’t resist Taco Bell’s Cool Ranch Doritos Locos taco commercial for one minute longer + I simply HAD TO run out on Sunday night to try this guy:
And it was worth every calorie.
OMG – sooooo goooood. Just do it already!
Best. Crepe. Ever.
Kevin and I stopped in Athens on Sunday on the way home from a road trip. Although he is a very proud Florida Gator and was more than slightly uncomfortable in such close proximity to Georgia’s campus, we wanted to pop in somewhere to grab a bite + some drinks. I walked him up and down Clayton Street (sprinting past any Georgia Bulldogs stores) and into Pauley’s Original Crepe Bar.
I spend a day in Athens once a year for work and usually end up on Clayton Street at the end of the night. I’d never noticed Pauley’s before, but in the daylight it looked like the perfect place for us. We sat up at the bar and looked over the menu. It took me all of 30 seconds to find exactly what I was looking for: a Nutella and banana crepe.
Pauley’s is really cute inside and offers 28 beers on tap, a full bar, sandwiches, biscuits, coffee, cake, etc., but I have a one track mind when it comes to crepes. GIVE ME NUTELLA AND NO ONE GETS HURT!
My crepe arrived shortly thereafter (they could see I meant business) and it was GLORIOUS! Just look at how photogenic. It was the best crepe I’ve ever eaten. No exclamation point necessary because that is a statement of fact. It was incredible.
If it’s true that you are what you eat, on Sunday I was a freaking rock star!! No lie. Pauley’s crepes kill it – and they are TOTALLY worth the trek to Athens! Plus, Athens is super cute – but don’t tell Kev I said that…

Okay, some of you vegetarian-gluten-free-organic folks may need to skip this post… (Don’t say I didn’t warn you!)
Kevin and I are kinda obsessing over these lately:
Look – they are only 5 points, they help to curb our burger cravings, and they are actually really good.
Don’t judge us…
Bhojanic in Buckhead Now Open!
One of my best girlfriends, Anjali, is a blog regular. Y’all know her. She’s a blast, and she is also responsible for introducing me to the Indian culture. I’m a little obsessed with it now, and I’m plotting how we are going to set up our kids one day so that they can have a gorgeous Indian/Jewish wedding. (My fingers are crossed that I can make that happen!)
Anjali gave me my first sari. (Isn’t it pretty?!)
She arranged for me to get henna done for my first time.
And I’ve gotten to experience some incredibly beautiful cultural + religious events + ceremonies with her family.
One of my favorite things Anjali introduced me to over the years is Indian food – which I’d never tried before she and I became friends. I love it now, but I think I was intimidated to try it before only because I didn’t know anything about it or what to order. Anjali took me to Bhojanic in Decatur to try Indian food for my first time, and she guided me through the menu. After that, I was hooked!
There was a problem, though. Bhojanic was located in Decatur, an area of town that I adore but rarely make it out to. Well, my problem has been officially solved! Bhojanic opened a Buckhead location yesterday in the Shops Around Lenox!
Now, it’ll be so much easier for me to drop in to taste some of THIS deliciousness.
Here’s a little bit about Bhojanic from their website:
In a city that is becoming increasingly populated with Indian culture, one would think that there would be an abundance of traditional, home-style Indian cuisine available. In Atlanta, this is not the case but thankfully, Atlanta is home to a truly fabulous, home-style Indian eatery that has the traditional taste of home with a warm and cosmopolitan ambiance.
The owners of Bhojanic understand the need for authentic Indian fare. With over 20 years of experience in catering and food service and a beloved first location in Decatur, the owners of Bhojanic are skillful at making delicious and creative Indian food nestled in lovely surroundings. The quality of food, the delightful atmosphere, and the excellent service that this restaurant provides are unmatched! The finest vegetables and meats are used to create the flavorful experience of the Indian culture.
The food you find at Bhojanic is exactly like the food cooked in the homes of Northern India. Using yogurts, authentic Indian spices, and other fresh ingredients allows the food to remain nourishing, light, and filling. With a wide selection of food at Bhojanic, there are choices for everyone.
Welcome to the ‘hood, Bhojanic! I’ll see you very soon!
