Today’s breakfast is toast, fried egg, and tomato. Continue reading “Toast, Egg, & Tomato”
Real Housewives of Atlanta Kandi Burruss – Tucker and husband Todd Tucker came together on an idea to share some home Southern recipes. I love their family traditional recipes and how each member of the family has their own recipe on the menu.
The cornbread muffins with Kandi’s homemade honey icing and syrup. I tried to get the recipes but you know how that goes. I walked away with no recipe.
I ordered the Old Lady Gang House Salad. This chicken is on point I need the recipe for that too. It was really good and my waiter made sure I was good and if he was too busy I made sure I asked with no problem.
Some of the credit goes to Aunt Joyce mother of Kandi, Aunt Bertha, and Aunt Nora who is the “Old Lady Gang” are the ones who taught Kandi to throw down in the kitchen. The Old Lady Gang is located right in the city’s Historic + Art District which is the Castleberry Hill neighborhood in Atlanta, GA
The 2nd bar is the downstairs lounge.
If you watched Bravo TV’s Real Housewives of Atlanta you would have seen the introduction of OLG.
When you in Atlanta, GA make sure you stop by and show love. It’s not that intimidating you might be nervous for a bit but then once you warm up everyone is so laid back and respectful. All photos are my own.

What are you having for lunch? Looking to make a sandwich or thinking of ideas and ways you can stop eating those same old boring sandwiches. Find a new favorite lunch.
There are so many things you can add to sandwiches without even realizing it’s ok to put certain ingredients on sandwiches. Your Taste Your Rules.
If I asked you to list 50 sandwich ideas how many would you come up with?
Ladies I’m going to give you some fun ways to make your man a sandwich that’s going to have him saying “you never did this before” you got to get people out of their comfort zone and stop thinking with a traditional mindset.
Here’s a list of ingredients you can think about when making your next sandwich:
- Chicken Salad
- Corn beef
- Egg Salad
- I bet you never thought about using Ricotta as a spread?
- Spinach Artichoke
- Buffalo Chicken
- Sliced Pear (fruit), and more
What you see here is a sandwich I create from scratch because I wanted to add the things I eat instead of following a recipe because it looked good, but on this sandwich, I used oven roasted Chicken Breast, American white cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, a Vegetable bagel, or you can use a Pretzel bagel and Garden Vegetable cream cheese. It might not be your taste buds but don’t knock it until you try it. I wanted to keep it cold cut but you can also fry your lunch meat to give it a cooked flavor.

Zucco’s Family Restaurant something for everyone!
Ready for some Mediterranean Dining. Want the full experience of Greece without having a passport? Sound good right in fact it sound very good, so leave your passport at home and fly down/up to Zucco’s serving the most tasty dishes from Appetizers, Soups & Salads, (my choice was a Greek Salad & Clam Chowder) Gyros, Burgers, Grinders, Pasta, Casseroles, Vegetarian, Chicken, Veal, Pizza, and many more. Zucco’s hold a seating of 180 seats. No matter what time of the day you stop by there is never a wait. Come check it out and stop by.
Plan on having a party “Private Party Room” for any occasion. You’re not afraid of clowns are you? Guess who will be stopping by every Thursday 5-7pm “Bowey The Clown” kids menu is only .99 bring in the children to be entertained.
I’ve asked around for different reviews on what other customers had to say. I found it interesting to get one from my sister who said “she want to try the Veal Parmesan” unfortunately I didn’t try the Veal Parm I took a slight turn and went for the “Blackened Mediterranean Chicken” $15.99 fresh Chicken breast with Spinach and Tomatoes in a spicy cream sauce over Ziti. I enjoyed it, but I felt it was a little to creamy and could have been drained a little more. At least for my liking someone else might think different.
Drink up the Cranberry $2.59 which is a little more than your average juice or soda beverage (no free refills) “their clientele is more so elders who don’t usually drink all their beverage” Brenda (my waitress). Isn’t this drink just so fancy? I was not expecting this I was looking for a regular tall glass. I didn’t think it was going to be enough and it is more than enough. If your anything like me you are still trying to sip your drink on the way out just so it don’t go to waste.
As a customer walked by my table he stated “This is a nice place” my waitress Brenda added “she wished it got busy for lunch” Without knowing their advertising service after what the waitress replied Zucco’s can probably use a little more marketing.
Yellow: Friendship, Joy, Get Well. Throughout history, yellow has been closely associated with the sun, making these roses excellent for cheering people up. Yellow roses send a message of appreciation and platonic love without the romantic subtext of other colors. The color represents feelings of joy and delight.
WELCOME TO GREECE
Complimentary meal sponsored by the Salvation Army. My first time in Cracker Barrel Old Country Store. Well at least something I can remember. Cracker Barrel offer southern hospitality and is originated from Lebanon, Tennessee. A restaurant where you hear the word “folks” with me being from the east coast and up north I’m learning the many languages and slang of the world. Everything is made fresh daily so I can imagine how much food is being tossed out on a daily prayerfully they can send it to the homeless shelters in need. I don’t know what they do with the food they don’t use. The biscuits are made from scratch and the baked goods are baked freshly throughout the day.
Cracker Barrel want to give you that homestyle love by making you feel comfortable as if you’re eating at your home table. You can share family time while you wait with a fun Peg Game placed on all tables.
I think it’s very interesting for the Old Country Store to be attached to the restaurant and not just this one but mostly all of them. The store offer a wide range of groceries, clothes, accessories, games, and more. The store will soon to add cold cut meat at the deli. One thing Cracker Barrel is known for is their well known cheese.
Cracker Barrel compliments me with a map and suggest I have fun on my road trip. Cracker Barrel has over 630 locations in 42 states, and a gift shop attached to the restaurant.
Weekday lunch special, Country dinner plates, and Homestyle favorites. I was so into the Peg Game I believe our waiter (David) came out in a timely manner. All the aprons have a cool twist to them it’s more of a cooking apron and not a below the waist apron.
Overall I enjoyed myself and had a southern style experience in Massachusetts.
