On our first visit to Vin 909, the whirl of the ceiling fans maintained a nice breeze on a 100-degree day.  It was brutal outside, so we didn’t even think about sitting in the lovely outdoor covered area.  Although there are a limited number of tables in this establishment, additional seating is tucked away in […]

Several months ago, a new restaurant opened in the Annapolis Towne Centre at Parole called Saladworks.  Just the name itself, is right up my alley, and from the first time we went, it has been a favorite!  Bright orange, purple, and green walls decorate the space, along with a poster size picture of the franchise […]

I haven’t always liked Sushi. Just ask my husband about my first experience 12 years ago. Not only did the thought of raw fish make me queasy, but I am a texture person and so Roe (or fish eggs) getting caught in my teeth… no thanks. About four years ago I started to explore cooking. […]
