My Sweet Tooth is Completely Out of Control…

Just generally.  But also because of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams – Westside Provisions.

I mean, check out these flavors:

This place is the really-real deal.  Take a peek into their kitchen HERE.  On top of spectacular ice creams, they also make frozen yogurt, sorbets, and ice cream sandwiches. Jeni’s cookbooks are seriously legit, too – one won a James Beard award.

I’m going to get a cavity here.  But it will be worth it.

The Prettiest Appetizer I Ever Did Eat.

Is this beautiful or WHAT?

Prime beef carpaccio, English peas with shoots, pickled green tomato, mustard, and urfa chili.  Perfection.

And if you can believe it, it tasted even more amazing than it looked!  Check it out at Empire State South.

Drink This Drink.

Initially I was intimidated by it, but once I worked up the courage (read: after two cocktails), I went ahead and ordered it + as soon as it hit my lips I realized that it is actually my BFF!  My soulmate!  The one who holds my heart!  My lobster!  The wind beneath my wings!

unnamed

This drink is the best drink EVER.  Ford’s gin, Cynar, muddled arugula (so that makes it a health drink #science), and black pepper.  It lives at St. Cecilia.  Go on and try it now!

Happiness is a Sprinkles Cupcake.

I mean, just LOOK at them.

sprinkles-cupcake

Divine.  Divine.  Divine!

And what’s better than going to Sprinkles inside Lenox Mall?  Well, visiting their 24 hour ATM, of course!  All cupcakes.  All the time, y’all.  Just look how excited my adorable niece was for her first visit!

Man, I wish I’d invented this…

Sprinkles-Cupcakes-300x336

After visiting The American Girl store (which I actually enjoyed way more than I anticipated), my niece had her heart set on trying a Sprinkles cupcake.  But I couldn’t let her stop at JUST a cupcake, so she listened to her aunt and went for the whole shebang…

Strawberry cupcake with strawberry icing and red velvet ice cream.  That’s my girl!  Maybe not the most complimentary flavors, but at least they are in the same color family?  Whatever the case, she LOVED it and couldn’t stop talking about how cool Sprinkles was and how badly they need to open one in Jacksonville.

If you have a case of the blahs – go to Sprinkles.  If you are having dinner anywhere in Buckhead – skip dessert and get in line for the cupcake ATM.  Whatever it is that brings you there, I highly recommend the red velvet ice cream (pictured below).  I daydream about it.

c

Happiness is a Sprinkles cupcake, and everyone knows that happy girls are the prettiest girls.  So eat up!

Why Wait for Cinco de Mayo…

…when you can celebrate at Tin Lizzy’s Cantina all over town this weekend!

tinlizzys

Here are the deets:

CINCO6

Did y’all know that chips and queso are totally calorie free on Cinco de Mayo?  In fact, they burn up all your fat when you eat them.  (It’s science.)  So you can chow down on as much as you want of THIS:

And go to town on some of these bad boys:

Tin-Lizzys-margaritas

Trust me, I KNOW.  I’m totally into this sort of stuff.  Heck, I hired a mariachi band to crash the end of our wedding…

Bottoms up to one of the greatest holidays on the calendar!
