What We Ate: Sylvain (New Orleans, La.)

What We Ate: Sylvain (New Orleans, La.) // The Speckled Palate
Winston and I traveled a ton during the spring and early summer for weddings, and we ended up in New Orleans several times. Yes, you should be jealous. Yes, we had a lovely time every time we visited. And yes, you should definitely check out The Big Easy if you never have before. This last time we were in New Orleans was our final wedding of the season, and I made plans with one of my friends for the day of...

What We Ate: New Orleans (May 2013)

What We Ate: New Orleans Adventures, May 2013 // The Speckled Palate
Y'all. It's been an exciting (and exhausting) last month, and as I'm sure you can tell from the sparseness of my posting here, I've been a little, ahem, busy. We've gone to Louisiana twice in the last four weeks for weddings. But today? Today, I'm sharing some snippets from our most recent New Orleans trip, which we took to celebrate the wedding of our friends, Jay and Ali.

What We Drank: Velvet (New Orleans)

What We Drank: Velvet, New Orleans. // The Speckled Palate
Back in October, I visited the Big Easy not once, but twice. For two separate weddings. I had a fabulous time both trips, and I had the pleasure of walking Magazine Street with my friends Karen and Ben before meeting the bride, a dear friend, to officially kick off the wedding festivities the second weekend. We ended up stumbling into Velvet to grab some much-needed coffee, and I fell in love with the little shop as I sipped my iced latte.

What We Ate: New Orleans

As y'all should know by now, my husband and I live in the heart of Louisiana, and we are constantly taking day (and weekend) trips to the east and west, visiting family and friends. Last week was no different, but this time, I made the journey alone. One of my cousins was visiting New Orleans with her husband, and I headed down to the Big Easy to spend some time with my cousin, who I hadn't seen in too long.

Sunday Snippets: The (Belated) Mardi Gras Edition

Sunday Snippets // The Speckled Palate
Last weekend, Winston and I headed down to New Orleans to celebrate Mardi Gras with friends. That's why there was no Sunday Snippets feature last week. Needless to say, we had a darn good time in the Crescent City. And needless to say, I was zonked out when we finally arrived back in Baton Rouge, so writing on Sunday evening was a no-go. So this week's feature will contain TWO WEEKS of snippets. Prepare yourselves.
