On the Road Review: Sluggo’s in Pensacola

All of the very best intentions can be laid to waste by a snowstorm. Hence my general lack of posts the past week and a half. When I left Roanoke for New Orleans, I was snowed out of the cabin, thus unable to pack or get the Christmas gifts for my family (luckily I had […]

A Quick Restaurant Gush: Lucky Restaurant: Roanoke, VA

Oh my goodness, it’s been a ridiculous week. We were hit two nights ago with a snowfall that I really wasn’t expecting. Thankfully I’d rescued the cats from the cabin a few days before and had them holed up at G’s place when the storm hit, but unfortunately I didn’t pack ahead of time. Which […]

Gluten-Free Spotted Dick with Roasted Pumpkin Custard

‘Tis the season for…spotted dick? No, don’t worry, I’m not going to get graphic on you, unless you count food porn as graphic! A few weeks ago, a friend of mine hosted a British food dinner party. Potluck style, we each brought a dish or two that represented the British Isles. Lots of strange and […]
