Goodbye Gourmet


zeeas 008

On the way home today I heard on NPR that Gourmet Magazine is going to be no more. (Also on the chopping block: Cookie and Modern Bride; read here)

Little did I know that at the exact same time I was listening to this story, Parrish was at home preparing HANDS DOWN the most delicious meal I have ever eaten.

Filet Mignon basted in Brown Herbed Butter

I often eat delicious food. If you’ve read my blog even for a week, you’ll notice that almost all my meals deliver tasty reviews. But the meal that I enjoyed tonight stopped me in tracks. I literally let each bite melt in my mouth. The outside was crispy…the steak was tender. It’s now an hour past, and I would totally do the entire meal all over again!

He served it alongside pillowy mashed potatoes with garlic.

I wish you guys could have been here.

Happy Birthday to Amy!!


I have known Amy for close to 5 years. I first met her when she and her husband Mack moved to Wilmington and she began working at the Food Co-op.


I quickly fell in love with her easy going personality. She is sweet to her core and always up for anything. She is autumn personified.

Plus, She’s only girl I know who looks gorgeous in a skort…


And a mustache.

I LOVE YOU AMY!!! I am so thankful to have you in my life. I wish I could have been there for your birthday, but I can’t wait to see you soon!!
