Savory Sausage Cheese Muffins

Posted by Gidget Eats under Top Foodie Blog
The way I see it, everyone should get exactly what they want on their birthday. Well, within reason of course. No tie-dyed ponies or 16-year-olds getting a 2012 Range Rover, that would just be ludicrous. My excitement for birthdays is no secret. This past year I managed to rack up a list of ten posts [...]

Taqueria La Placita

Posted by Brett under Top Foodie Blog
If you're looking for one of the most authentic taquerias in the Washington metropolitan area, look no further than Taqueria La Placita. This small restaurant, nested in an area of Hyattsville aptly dubbed "Little Mexico", is as genuine as it gets. [...]

Shipp’s Harbour Grill

Posted by Gidget Eats under Restaurants, Top Foodie Blog
How I feel about Shipp’s Harbour Grill is similar to The Time Traveler’s Wife movie, both had great potential but fell flat in execution. Let me explain. Way back when in October we took a brief trip to Orange Beach, AL and had the chance to eat at Shipp’s Harbour Grill. Having never heard of [...]

Ajax Diner

Posted by Gidget Eats under Restaurants, Top Foodie Blog
The food is finer than football in Oxford. During the first year I moved down to the South, my husband and I traveled to Oxford once to compete in the Rebel Man sprint triathlon. We managed to cross the finish line and eat out at a couple places, but time was limited and our focus [...]

Deceivingly Delicious Spinach Artichoke Dip

Posted by Gidget Eats under Top Foodie Blog
Healthy and delicious are adjectives normally unrelated to dip. Nevertheless, those are two ambitious claims for a Spinach and Artichoke dip recipe I’ve been holding on to from Cooking Light magazine. Recently I had the chance to test this for myself, needing an appetizer to bring to a party. Not wanting to be completely guilt-free [...]

Mon Ami Gabi

Posted by Gidget Eats under Restaurants, Top Foodie Blog
Watching a Cirque du Solie show is instant inspiration to start doing push-ups or a guilt inducing catalyst for indulging in one too many cookies. Good thing we went to the performance after eating at Mon Ami Gabi. On our final evening in Las Vegas we had dinner at Mon Ami Gabi and took in [...]

Bouchon Bakery

Posted by Gidget Eats under Restaurants, Top Foodie Blog
Chocolate croissants will give anyone an ulterior motive. Although I didn’t get a chance to eat at Bouchon Bistro while in Las Vegas, we happened to wander by Bouchon Bakery in the Venetian. Actually, what appeared to be coincidence was more like a strategic covert operation. Food lovers don’t let certain opportunities pass them by. [...]

Video: Super Spicy Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Posted by Rachel Blumenthal under Top Foodie Blog
I wrote about these cookies back in March, but I figured they'd be a fun subject to revisit for another video post. Through the Foodbuzz Tastemakers program, I recently received a complimentary sample of Ghirardelli's new Intense Dark chocolates, an... [...]

Bellagio Weekend Champagne Brunch Buffet

Posted by Gidget Eats under Restaurants, Top Foodie Blog
Being on my first trip to Las Vegas and celebrating my thirtieth birthday, I wanted to have the quintessential Sin City adventure. By Sunday we had already racked up a huge cab fare to Settebello Pizzeria Napoletana, club hopped at the Palms, stuffed ourselves at Hash House a Go Go, walked the Strip, watched the [...]
