Cracker Barrel

My friend is always raving about how Cracker Barrel ( has the BESTTTT breakfast and how she'd drive 20 miles for it. Finally, my friends and I went to a wedding in Richmond and were finally able to taste all that southern goodness! I learned that you should never to go at noon on a Sunday, the wait felt like forever. Good thing is that its also a store so you can shop around while you're waiting. The wait was worth it. I had the sour dough toast with over easy eggs in them and they were delish! Turns out that there are almost 600 Cracker Barrels in about 41 states. I have been totally missing out...

Back from a long hiatus

WanderingChopsticks kindly reminded me that it's been almost half a year since I've posted. I didn't realize that it's been that long as I've been caught up with other things. After finishing up school in March, I thought I'd have time to cook and post more but boy was I wrong! Events keep popping up left and right! Since March, I've taken a cruise to the Bahamas, then wedding season started and is still going strong. I've gone to 3 weddings so far this year and still have about, 6 more to go to this year. On top of that, my camera broke :( so please let me know if there are any good deals out there for point and shoot cameras. I'll try to update more frequently, but here are some pictures to look at in the mean time.

C & K's Wedding - My friend got married at a beautiful restaurant called 2941 (picture below is from the restaurant website: The atmosphere was great and same as the view but unfortunately it was raining that day so we didn't get to go outside for pictures. Highlights of the meal were the hors d'oeuvres, which consisited of crab cakes and shrimp skewers. Least favorite was the steak because I got a very tough piece of steak. Others seemed to like their entree, so I think it coulda just been piece! Everything else was good, it was a joyous occassion and I was happy to be there so I can't complain :)

OOohhh here's another highlight of the meal! Yummiee cotton candy.
