Savannah Food

Food: the most important part of a trip to the South! When I said the only thing I would miss about the South after moving would be the food I had absolutely no idea how true that would be. On the up side, I've learned to cook my favorites myself.

Waffle House: raisin bread, cheesy scrambled eggs, city ham, hash browns with onions, ham, and gravy, and sweet tea:

J. Christophers: shared oreo pancakes, eggs benedict, grits, banana bread pecan french toast, and fresh florida OJ:

The Pirate’s House: me: crab cake, fried shrimp, green beans, garlic mashed potatoes. Ruth: shrimp carbonara. Evie: pecan fried chicken (I got the leg!):

Mirabelle Cafe: Georgia Peach Cobbler liege waffle and hot chocolate:

Clary’s Cafe: me: fish sandwich with fries and slaw. dad: crab cake eggs benedict:

Screamin' Mimi’s: baked ziti:

A-J’s Dockside Restaurant: Fish sandwich, hush puppies, key lime pie:

Olde Pink House Restaurant: fried pork chop with macaroni and cheese and collards. Riesling:

Amelie’s (Atlanta): 1/2 a turkey and fruit compote baguette, cup of spinach asparagus leek soup, salted caramel brownie:

The favorite of all of us is the Pirate House. All of our dishes were so, so good. The second probably goes to the Olde Pink House. Those collards... I was a little disappointed in Amelie's in Atlanta. The salted caramel brownie was definitely not up to par and the sandwich was pretty pitiful, but still tasty. I hope to go back to Savannah ASAP.

Blood of the Earth by Faith Hunter (Early Review)

A Soulwood Novel #1 - Faith's new series set in the Jane Yellowrock world!!

For those of you who are huge JY fans and read Blood in Her Veins, you will have already read a short story where Nell Ingram helps JY & Vamps onto a cult's land to rescue a missing vamp. Nell's character was extremely interesting and I was so excited to find out that she was getting her own series! BOTE is exactly the type of book I look for when I'm in the mood for witchy books; I'm not so much into the spells but I do love the interaction with nature and the earth. Nell doesn't know what she is and neither do we (nor do any supernats who have met her) so she has had no guidance for her abilities.Nell was born into a polygamist cult that lives off the grid, preparing for government ruin or the apocalypse. She left when she was 12 to live off the compound with a family she would later marry into. Her background is really fascinating and seemingly done well. (I don't have any real-life experience or knowledge but it seemed believable.) Ricky Bo and PSYLED ask Nell for her help and she ends up being contracted for work with them. This, and Nell's developing connection to her land are the driving forces in this book.

I absolutely loved this book. I wouldn't change anything about it and cannot wait for more books in this series! It will be out August 2nd, 2016.

5/5 Stars
