I love stopping by Mama Goldberg’s and getting my favorite salad. All of the salads are delicious, the proportions are great and there seems to be an endless amount of ingredients to choose from! Here is my personal combination.
I usually order mine with:
Sun Dried Tomatoes
As for the dressing, that depends on what I’m in the mood for but I typically order some type of vinaigrette.
One of my favorite restaurants in town featuring one of my favorite dishes, Com Gà and Gỏi Cuốn Gà (not pictured) Roughly translated it’s marinated grilled chicken over jasmine rice, chopped salad drizzled with scallion oil, and fish sauce (nuoc mam).

Here are some more random sights from my recent trip to Florida during the Thanksgiving holiday. This post represents the most pics I’ve shared at once ever! I had a great time walking around shooting these images and I hope you all enjoy them as well.
Hello world! Happy Friday to everyone! Today I’d like to share a photo I shot while back home in Chicago. It was just a McDonald’s but, it was the one of the fanciest McDonalds I’d had ever been in! It was funny because, until I saw the golden arches I actually thought it was high end restaurant. Anyway, I truly enjoyed my time home, it was MUCH needed!!! I took TONS of pictures that I will be adding to my blog and I can’t wait until I can go back! Maybe to stay??? We’ll see….
I love to cook! One fact about me most people don’t know is that since I was child I’ve always wanted to attend Culinary Art School. Preparing food is an art, it’s both challenging and very interesting to me. There are quite a few really good cooks in my family so I’ve always had great influences to draw inspiration from. Although I’ve never stepped foot in any cooking classes, I live out my chef fantasies within my kitchen, preparing meals daily for myself and family. I’ve always documented meals that I feel look especially appetizing whether I made it or not, but, I wanted to dedicate a category here on my blog in which I can share these unreleased photos with the world. First up are just a few from this spring as my family and I kicked off our grilling season. Funny thing is, being from Illinois has never prevented me from firing up my grill no matter what season it is! I was raised in a family that would grill in the middle of a Midwest winter in 10 feet of snow, a blizzard, whatever!!! As long as the the charcoal can be lit, we’re going to grill no matter how hot or cold it is outside! Now that I live in Georgia my friends think it’s unheard of for me to go outside in freezing temperatures to grill but I love grilled food so much, plus Georgia winter is NOTHING like Illinois winter so it’s very easy for me to grill year round. Well, I will continue to update my adventures in food from this point forward so be sure to check back often if you love the sight of delicious looking foods straight from my kitchen and from all of my travels. And remember, it’s always a great time to grill!
