Must Eat Meals: Florida – Key Lime Pie

Tallahassee is in the extreme north of Florida, and our next destination was in the far south.  August 2 was cloudy and rainy in western Florida, which made it a good day to be confined to the car. Everyone raves about Fort Myers Beach.  As it was directly along our route, we planned to stop and… Continue reading Must Eat Meals: Florida – Key Lime Pie

Must Eat Meals: Georgia – Peach Cobbler

After a hiatus to actually blog about the trips we took this summer, I'm ready to finish 2017's LONG trip.  Sorry for the convoluted path, but I want to get caught up.  Hopefully once 2017 is done, I'll get to 2019 on time. 😉 I left off having explored the great city of Atlanta, Georgia.… Continue reading Must Eat Meals: Georgia – Peach Cobbler

Other Eats: Mark Twain Dinette – Hannibal, Missouri

We drove north from St. Louis, following the Mississippi River, thanks to our GPS deciding to take us a slightly longer route than the one we had originally intended.  On the upside, the new route took us through the hometown of renowned American author Mark Twain.  Arriving at dinner time, we stopped to eat in… Continue reading Other Eats: Mark Twain Dinette – Hannibal, Missouri

Other Eats: Yolklore – St. Louis, Missouri

After a fantastic meal at Yolk in Chicago, I was determined to find an equally good breakfast place in St. Louis.  The internet had not failed me yet, including great ribs the night before, so when I read about Yolklore online, I decided we’d give it a try.   This place was not what I… Continue reading Other Eats: Yolklore – St. Louis, Missouri

Must-Eat Meals: St. Louis – St. Louis Style Ribs

After a long, excruciatingly hot day, food may not seem overly appetizing.  However, St. Louis has its own must-eat food in addition to the toasted ravioli that cover the state of Missouri.  With St. Louis style ribs as our mission, we headed to Adam’s Smokehouse in search of some. We arrived at Adam’s at 7:15p.m.  They… Continue reading Must-Eat Meals: St. Louis – St. Louis Style Ribs

Other Eats: Vincent VanDoughnut – St. Louis, Missouri

St. Louis neighborhoods are some of the most well-defined and distinct of any of the cities we have visited.  The Hill had shown us that the night before, and this morning we were off to discover another unique area: The Grove.   The Grove is more of an entertainment district with craft breweries and restaurants,… Continue reading Other Eats: Vincent VanDoughnut – St. Louis, Missouri

Must-Eat Meals: Missouri – Toasted Ravioli

Conquering a fear of heights and claustrophobia can really work up an appetite.  We left downtown and headed to The Hill, the St. Louis equivalent of Little Italy.  This quaint little neighborhood reflects its Italian heritage everywhere, from the fire hydrants to the potted plants, and certainly in its restaurants. We circled the neighborhood looking… Continue reading Must-Eat Meals: Missouri – Toasted Ravioli

Historic Route 66 makes for some interesting, kitschy stops on a road trip.  After a morning in Springfield, we discovered one of the stops when we drove up to the Cozy Dog Drive In, home of the Cozy Dog.  Like most people, you are probably wondering what exactly a Cozy Dog is?  Let me satisfy your… Continue reading Other Eats: Cozy Dog Drive In – Springfield, Illinois

Other Eats: Red Apple Pancake House – Carol Stream, Illinois

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  Finding a good breakfast spot on vacation is key and we have definitely had some good ones.  I'm thinking specifically of Bucktooth Rooster in Big Pine Key and Yolk in Chicago.  Before heading to bed on Saturday night, I searched for a place to eat on… Continue reading Other Eats: Red Apple Pancake House – Carol Stream, Illinois

Must-Eat Meals: Illinois – Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza

On our second day in Chicago, we worked up huge appetites visiting museums and parks, appetites big enough for a slice of Chicago's number one food: deep dish pizza.  Chicago is known for many famous foods: Chicago style hot dogs, Italian beef, Garrett Popcorn.  The one considered must-eat in the Windy City is the deep… Continue reading Must-Eat Meals: Illinois – Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza
