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 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.

CAN YOU FLY LIKE PAPER?
For those of you that have anxiety like myself let this be self-help for getting on your next flight with no problem. I don’t know how much strength this will give you but the least you can do is say it helped. I need to find my strength at times and it hasn’t been in anyone (God is saying it’s in me), you know that type of strength that gives you a sense of security for when the plane goes down you don’t care because you’re with that one person you’re willing to die with, man I couldn’t even find that within my own mom. Trust me being on a plane reminds you that you are alive. No, I’m not going to sleep, relaxing, nor do I need a neck pillow.
Sometimes we won’t share our fears with others we just go with the flow and ease the pain as it comes. I going to try asking someone, how do you feel about flying? Those that travel more often than others know what to expect I’m not gonna lie I’m the type of person that wants everyone to sit down and don’t move any bit of turbulence I feel I just start repenting on the spot (God forgive me for my sins). I don’t want to talk to my neighbors I’m like hi, thank you and that’s it as they look unbothered. I’m so focusing on the movement and the alerts around me I won’t even buy the $2 wifi and when I think about it I’m so digitally connected I forgot there isn’t a tower in the sky because I’m like why my phone isn’t working. Goes to show you how much I fly.
There’s a list of things you can do to avoid dramatic anxiety: sleep, read, listen to music, spark interesting conversations, write, plan, and the list goes on. I want you to know that you are not alone and someone feels the exact same way.
