Quite a few months ago, we noticed a small bridge being built a bit off the side of the road not that far from our house.  It was the subject of much speculation between my husband and I until we found out that the bridge was part of the entrance to Broad Run Park.

Broad Run Park is the newest addition to The Parklands of Floyds Fork, a huge park system that started in 2011 and is scheduled to be finished this summer.  The master plan for The Parklands includes 100 miles of new hiking and biking trails, 19 miles of canoe trail, playgrounds, walking paths, and bark parks, plus areas for picnics, fishing holes, and more.

We were recently invited to come check out the Bonefish Grill Louisville location and see what they’d been, pardon the pun, cooking up during their remodel.  My husband and I have enjoyed our previous dining occasions at Bonefish Grill, so we were more than happy to stop in and see what was new.

Bonefish Grill is pretty famous for their Bang Bang Shrimp, which we do of course love.  This time, though, we decided to steer away from our traditional favorites and try some new things. Continue reading »

Trying out new restaurants was one of my husband and I’s favorite things to do when we were living in Florida.  There were so many so close to us that we tried to get to one new place every other week or so.

Mellow Mushroom has fun decor unique to each location, like this fun Churchill Downs-inspired decor at the Middletown, KY location.

There are a lot of great ones to try here in Louisville, too; Louisville is quickly becoming known as a real foodie town.  But between having a baby and moving to the edges of the city we haven’t had a chance to try as many new ones as we’d like. Continue reading »

This Saturday is the national Free Seat Check Saturday. are going to be events all over the country, but if you’re in the Louisville area, I have the event you’re going to want to attend!

Before I get into all the details, did you know that according to Safe Kids, 73% of car seats are installed incorrectly?  That’s a crazy-high number, but it’s one I can understand.  There’s a lot to read up on and understand: LATCH or no LATCH, what’s considered “armpit level” for the chest clip, rear- or forward-facing?

Last year I had the pleasure of attending the Macy’s Culinary Council Cooking Demo here in Louisville.  While there I interviewed Johnny Iuzzini and was able to watch as he whipped up some dessert magic.  I’m really excited to share that he’s returning to the Macy’s at Oxmoor Center again this year, and will be accompanied by Stephanie Izard (season 4 winner of Top Chef) and Louisville’s own Edward Lee.

Whether you’re a Louisville native or if you’re just in town for the Kentucky Derby, I’d love to have you join me at this year’s cooking demo!  In addition to seeing Johnny Iuzzini again, I’m kind of stoked that Stephanie Izard is going to be there.  Top Chef has been one of my favorite shows over the years, and she’ll be the third Top Chef contestant I’ll have the chance to meet.
