Despite the brief dip back into Third Winter here in Louisiana, Spring is right around the corner, and with it comes those brief, shining moments where you can eat outside and not melt into a puddle or become a mosquito buffet. But, as most parents are well aware, not all outdoor dining experiences are created equal... especially when you have small children. That’s why I’ve compiled this list of a few of our favorite places to eat around Baton Rouge and surrounding areas. When you only get so many days a year of perfect weather, it’s nice to take the guesswork out of the equation. The following spots are sure to please the whole family (and entertain the kids so...

*We've updated our list for 2022!* Even with Mardi Gras on full roll, tasting ALL the King Cake alternatives has become a fun endeavor! Hope you enjoy them as much as we do! We've all heard it, we may have even said it. "The parades may be canceled, but the celebration lives on" or "You can't cancel King Cake!" We know! We're a state built on tradition and a love of food seasons! Gumbo Season, Snoball Season, Crawfish Season, and King Cake Season. I will not debate the best King Cake in town, although my friend Sarah, at Lafayette Mom wrote a pretty good breakdown of the cakes and categories. No, I'm here to make a list of non-traditional ways to get...
Valentine's Day is right around the corner. Have you made dinner plans yet? Have you picked out a gift yet? I am going to assume your answer is NO and you have that grimace on your face that says "Darn it, I forgot about Valentine's Day!" Have no fear Theresa is here to help (picture me wearing a red cape and superhero music is playing in the background)! If you want to wow your significant other and get away from the same ole, same ole, I have a few suggestions for you. 1.) Houmas House Estate and Gardens   This is probably one of my favorite places in Louisiana. The gardens are stunningly beautiful, and you can easily get lost in a romantic...
Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Rotolo's Pizzeria. Pizza Night at Rotolo's :: Feeding Everybody in the Family Pizza. It may be the most versatile food out there. But not all pizza is created equally. As a working mom (and someone who loves delicious food), pizza is a frequent dinner choice. And when you ask my 7 year old what kind of pizza she wants, the answer is always Rotolo's.  Tonight was no exception, and our family of four met after camp and work for a delicious meal at the Perkins location in Baton Rouge. We have a new baby, so a lot of considerations go into when and where we eat at local restaurants. Often it means that my husband picks...
My birthday is coming up, which makes me feel a bit overwhelmed. I honestly don't give a flip about age; I'm more concerned about how to celebrate and what options are available nearby. With four kids, we're not that interested in (nor can we afford) going away for a long weekend kid-free. So you won't see any of that here. And I'm a bit beyond the big party / clubbing scene (do people still say that?). Instead, here are some options for more grown-up ways to celebrate your birthday around Baton Rouge. Restaurants I love a classic Saturday night out at Superior Grill, where you can combine good food and good music, but I am still such a fan of Ichiban's...
Disclosure :: This post is sponsored by Ruby Slipper Cafe Baton Rouge.  Four Reasons Ruby Slipper Cafe Should Be Your Go To Baton Rouge Brunch Brunch time is any time if you just believe and we believe in it often. We have what I like to call Brinner (breakfast for dinner) at least once a week. So of course when the Ruby Slipper reached out to see if we wanted to try out their new limited time specials, it was a no brainer! Without further ado here are our top reasons to check out your local Ruby Slipper!!  1. The Food  So this may be an obvious one, but y’all the food is out of this world! Everything has that homey taste that you...
When looking for a new activity or family outing, I often turn to my family and friends for inspiration. If my fellow moms or best friends suggest it, then it must be good, right? That’s why I put together three things I am loving right now to hopefully introduce something new to you and your family. Red Stick Farmers Market With the cooler weather here, I’m finding our family is spending more and more time outside. One of the ways we love to spend Saturday mornings outside is at the Red Stick Farmers Market. Located downtown on Main Street, this market is home to local farmers selling delicious local produce and meat. From Louisiana strawberries to local grass-fed beef, you can...
Disclosure :: This date night could not have been possible without our wonderful sponsor, Rotolo's Craft and Crust. This Date Night Out was all about gathering in a place where we could be relaxed, enjoy yummy bites and have uninterrupted conversation with the ones we love. We'd say from looking around the place, that was accomplished!  Thank You to Our Title Sponsor :: Date Night Out Rotolo's Craft and Crust went above and beyond to make sure that they made this a memorable night for guests. From the menu, to the staff, they went the extra mile to turn out tasty food, whip up delicious drinks and cater to our needs. Thank You to Amber Rae And Kendra Scott :: Date Night Out The mood...
