Houston Edition: Shipley’s Do-Nuts

This is not the first time, nor will it be the last time, that I blog about donuts. I mean, who doesn’t love donuts?! They’re perfect pillows of doughy, sweet goodness! Texas definitely didn’t fail to provide me with delicious donut options when I visited.

After deciding to take a last-minute trip to Texas to visit friends and go on food adventures, we picked up some Shipley’s before we headed out on a road trip to Austin. Not only does Shipley’s do donuts, they also have these delicious creations called kolaches (found all over Texas!) which are soft, fresh buns filled with smoked sausage and cheese.  Continue reading “Houston Edition: Shipley’s Do-Nuts”


Pensacola Edition: McGuires Irish Pub

Location: 600 E Gregory Street Pensacola, Florida 32502

The Yard Bird Cafe

Another travel edition of Recommendable Edibles! Last weekend I did a charity walk with my family and friends in St. Augustine. Well, I can’t travel anywhere without trying some of the local food! This one almost didn’t happen. We were a group of five and we showed up to The Yard Bird Cafe, which is pretty close to historic St. Augustine. We walked in and were told the wait would be almost an hour. No thanks! I was starving. I was a little disappointed as we walked out but we heard someone yelling at us as we were walking to the car. A table was leaving and if we waited ten minutes, we could be seated. Perfect! Continue reading “The Yard Bird Cafe”
