Savannah Style

The joy of walking the “historic district” of Savannah is that food is located everywhere. Brunch on Sunday morning was at Huey’s on the River for their delicious Bloody Mary’s with skewered okra, tomatoes and celery; the crab-cake benedict is something I want to recreate as a holiday breakfast or as an evening meal this summer. Crabcakes and poached eggs are original on their own, but add fried green tomatoes with hollandaise sauce and the dish becomes tastefully authentic. Lastly, one does not leave the restaurant without an order of their N’awlins style doughnuts known as “beignets”. This fritter of square fried dough is served with confectioner’s sugar and a fab bourbon pecan sauce!!!

Caramel apples, fireballs, sweet-tarts were in barrels throughout a multitude of stores along River Street making it difficult to choose.

Stay sweet,
Kathleen

Winter Reprieve

Winter has certainly taken its toll in one form or another. If the rain hasn’t drowned out our sanity, the ice and snow have certainly chipped away at our resolve. What’s needed is a temporary respite… a break if you will! Where to you ask …. well someplace much warmer and sunnier… Savannah!

Telmadge Memorial Bridge spans the Savannah River to Hutchinson Island.
Tree lined Emmet Park with Spanish Moss dripping everywhere is parallel to the River.

As I have posted before there are several rituals upon our arrival in Savannah that we must experience. Starting with the all-you-eat can brunch at Pirates House on East Broad Street. When you have to catch an early flight out of DC breakfast is not always option. The okra, collard greens, mac & cheese and fried chicken are absolutely delicious.
After lunch it’s time to walk along River Street, and first stop was into Byrd’s Cookies as “salted caramel” wafted through the air. Once over the threshold you realize the shop is a cookie fanatics dream with a variety of benne wafers, cheddar crisp and baskets filled with treats.
Did I mention our mini-vacation was to experience the taste of the South so, we started by stocking up on baked goods and sweet treats!!!

Travel stylishly,
Kathleen
