America’s Best Coffee Shops #nationalcoffeeday

Let’s be honest with ourselves. Many of us cannot start our day without the wonderful warm cup of coffee in the morning, so it’s not like we really need a “national holiday” reminding us to celebrate our favorite caffeinated beverage. But, hey, any excuse to make a trip to a coffee shop, or what I call my third home, right? (Note: my second home is at my coworking space, where I work.)

Today is National Coffee Day! And, instead of sharing drink specials at the popular coffee chains, I wanted to share our suggestions for where to go for your espresso needs around the United States. Oh, and yes, I always google “best coffee” when I visit cities for business or pleasure trips because like I said before, there is no better way to start the day then with a GOOD GREAT cup of coffee. Enjoy!

Victrola Cafe and Roastery, Seattle, WA
I remember walking into this magical place when I visited Seattle for a #FoodieChats event, and it did not disappoint. From the characters who drink their coffee hear to the music playing the background to the delicious cup put before me, Victrola is my go-to place when I visit Seattle. All three Victrola locations focus on single-origin coffee, but offer blends as well. Founded in 2000, Victrola hosts free cuppings, or coffee tastings, open to the public every Wednesday at 11 a.m.

Either/Or, Portland, OR
Either/Or is an intelligent coffee shop, located in the city of coffee. Start with any of the signature drink offering, as they change frequently. Try the beverage flight, which includes a shot of espresso, a cappuccino or macchiato and a tiny food pairing. Their spicy Tanglewood chai is fantastic, and coffee sodas are an ideal caffeinated spritzer on warm days.

Wrecking Ball Coffee Roasters, San Francisco, CA
Wrecking Ball is now offering their award-winning coffee in a full-service shop, after operating as a pop-up for several years. The originators of the term “third-wave coffee,” the shop does not disappoint, offering precise and technologically advanced pour-overs and espresso drinks.

The ELK, New York, NY
Located in West Village, the ELK is a destination for a fine cortado and a single-origin pour-over. Enjoy the wall of well-curated artisanal products or get some work done in the bright, cheery space.

Dinosaur Coffee, Los Angeles, CA
An expansive, gorgeously laid out coffee bar with plenty of space for laptop warriors, this shop offers the best of LA: quality Four Barrel espresso, friendly baristas and an airy room perfect for conversation (or mobile work).

Communal Coffee, San Diego, CA
Communal brews the acclaimed Sightglass Coffee with the beautiful monochromatic background. It is a nice place to sip coffee in “America’s Finest City.”

Sawada, Chicago, IL
There’s more to Sawada than just a “military latte,” a posh coffee drink that’s looks like camouflage. It’s roasty from espresso, slightly bitter from the green tea and warmed with gentle notes of white chocolate. Sawada also offers straightforward espresso drinks and iced coffee. Grab a seat at the ping pong table or on a counter seat.

Copper Door Coffee, Denver, CO
Copper Door is the first female-only-owned roasting company in Denver offering beans to-go and some of the best & most creative drinks in town.

Crema Cafe, Cambridge, MA
Located at Harvard Square, Crema stays busy year-round churning out espresso beverages, tea lattes and plenty of iced beverages when it is hot outside.

Colada Shop, Washington, D.C.
Colada Shop offers unusual coffee drinks like its Cafe Cubano (a shot of coffee, sweetened with whipped sugar) or Cafe Bon Bon (espresso and sweetened condensed milk). Don’t stop there! Grab some delicious Cuban food while you enjoy this colorful space in Washington, D.C.

La Colombe, Philadelphia, PA
Of course, there are a number of La Colombe cafes around the US and hundreds more brewing their beans. While I have only been to their Rittenhouse Square coffee shop, I have heard amazing things about the charms of the massive flagship in Fishtown. There’s good food and so much space (no WiFi, though), so not a place to work remotely. Next trip to Philly will definitely include this coffee shop with my girlfriends.

Dogwood Coffee Co., Minneapolis, MN
Dogwood Coffee Co. is a coffee shop focused on roasting quality over quantity. It takes great pride in finding the right farmers to buy beans from, learning about and crafting its roasting process and sharing its delicious cups coffee with everyone. Dogwood offers coffees and espressos by the cup, or whole bags of beans to-go, so you can enjoy the roasts in the comfort of your own home.

Caffé Medici, Austin, TX
This longtime Austin coffee shop has five branches around town, including the Congress walk-up window with sidewalk cafe. I stop here every time that I am in Austin because it has a warm and homey vibe, and the elegant downtown space boasts a massive espresso bar. Like Seattle and Portland, there are a lot of amazing coffee shops in Austin, but this place always feels like home.

PublicUs, Las Vegas, NV
PublicUs features coffee selections and pastries. Thanks, Frank Gruber of Tech.co, for introducing us to this delicious cup of coffee. What a great gift to bring to Spark.Me! While you are PublicUs, try their farm-to-table sandwiches & pastries. Also, consider trying the Green Panda matcha latte.

The Wired Goat Cafe, Columbia, SC
Highly recommended by Spa Travel Gal Ava Roxanne Stritt, the Wired Goat Cafe has a funky interior with vintage furniture and local art. Their freshly baked bread and lattes are always a hit and their staff is extremely friendly.

What do you think? Is this list missing any coffee shop that you love?

The Summer Menu at Jasper’s Gourmet Backyard Cuisine Will Make You Want Summer to Stay

There truly is something for everyone at Jasper’s!  Jasper’s is known for their gourmet backyard cuisine and their use of the finest quality seasonal ingredients.  They feature gourmet twists on popular dishes and enhance them with fresh and premium ingredients.  To make things even better they have added some really wonderful new summer menu items.  Think fresh heirloom tomatoes and Texas peaches used in the most unexpected and delicious ways.

 

My husband and I recently visited Jasper’s at their Shops of Legacy location which is a trendy and happening area of Plano.  I love the restaurant’s interior – it’s contemporary with pops of wood which makes it feel elegant and upscale but warm and cozy at the same time.   The restaurant did not disappoint.  We had an amazing dinner from the creative appetizers to the delicious desserts.

 

To start off, I picked one of the summer appetizers Smoked Texas Peach Bruschetta.  The description sounded intriguing and it was.  It’s made with goat cheese with a honey and balsamic drizzle topped with peaches!  It has that delicious mix of tangy, sweet, and salty which I absolutely love.

My husband picked the Pulled Pork Empanadas (because he loves empanadas) which is a standard menu item at Jasper’s.  He’s now a huge fan.  The empanadas are made with a delicious chimichurri sauce and cotija cheese and the pastry is baked to perfection.  I have to say it’s now a favorite of mine too.

Next up we tried the restaurant’s very popular and award winning Caesar Salad.  It truly is one of the best I’ve ever had.  It was very fresh and light (not like a lot of Caesars which are “over” dressed) with grated Grana Padano and crispy focaccia croutons.  I’ll order it again when I go back for sure.

 

For my entrée I picked one of their summer offerings, the Shiner Bock Honey BBQ Rotisserie Chicken over apple wood smoked bacon and cheddar grits (yes you heard me bacon and cheese grits).  This dish has everything going for it – Shiner, Honey, BBQ, and Grits so it was a big win-win for me.

My husband tried the award winning  Slow Smoked Baby Back ribs with Creamy Baked Potato Salad and Ancho BBQ.   The ribs made Bon Appetit Magazine’s top 3 choices for America’s Best Ribs.  They loved them and so did my husband (he’s still talking about them).  They were fall off the bone tender and are served with a delightfully surprising rendition of potato salad and topped with fried onions – delicious!  For sides we chose the asparagus prepared with gremolata butter and the crispy, smoky brussell sprouts.  Both were delicious as well.

Now let’s talk about desserts.  Oh my gosh do they have desserts.  I’m not sure how we had room but let’s say we managed.    Our very helpful waiter, William, suggested we have the trio which included the Bundt cake which actually melts in your mouth like butter (highly recommend), the Strawberry Tart (it has the cobbler crust that you dream of), and the Cherry Limeade (think key lime pie with a cherry on top)!  Triple Yum is all I can say!

Jasper’s has backyard fresh roots and they seem to be committed to delivering it.  Everything is made from scratch here and is thoughtfully prepared.  I believe it  puts them in a class above a lot of other restaurants.   Jasper’s also has a great wine selection and their cocktails were perfect (I did not have to explain my signature cocktail more than once) and the service was excellent.  Everything was perfectly timed and more than lived up to our expectations.  We will be back.  And you should definitely go before summer is over to try their new summer menu.  It’s available for both lunch and dinner!

 

Jasper’s has several locations at Plano, Richardson, and The Woodlands in Houston.  For their menu and more information go to:

Don’t Miss Dallas’ Newest Addition – District 30 Craft Bar and Kitchen!

There’s a new hip restaurant in Dallas called District 30 Craft Bar and Kitchen and it’s officially open and ready to delight you with their unique cuisine.  This new “gastropub” features American, Italian, and combines Tex Mex with comfort food in the most surprising ways.  There is something for everyone here – from standard fare such as burgers, crab cakes, pizza, and salads to unique and creative recipes.

My husband and I recently went for a dinner preview and we had a wonderful experience from start to finish.  The staff was friendly and welcoming and the atmosphere of the restaurant is warm and inviting with wood paneling and décor and big comfy booths.  This will be the place to go this fall to watch the big games because they have lots of TV’s throughout the restaurant.

Everything we were served was delicious and thoughtfully prepared.  For appetizers our favorites included the unique ahi tuna mini crisps that are served with wasabi spiced avocado and pickled  ginger (my husband’s favorite), tasty tempura asparagus sticks, and the stuffed Portobello mushroom caps filled with garlic, spinach, and cream cheese (my favorite).

Next up we were absolutely delighted to sample the restaurant’s incredible Chicken and Jalapeno Dumplings.  This is where Tex Mex meets comfort food at District 30.  The dish features pan roasted chicken breast with jalapeno dumplings cooked in a creamy cilantro sauce.  My husband and I agreed that this was one of our new favorite dishes and we will absolutely be going back just for this fabulous creation.

For the main course we sampled District 30’s signature dish which is the braised beef short ribs.  The short ribs are slow cooked in a red wine sauce over mashed Yukon gold potatoes with green beans.  The ribs were incredibly tender and the wine sauce is rich and to die for and the pairing with mashed potatoes is perfect.  The spring lamb lollipops are pan seared with a cashew and mini pesto crust and are interesting and favorable.  They are served with roasted fingerling potatoes and vegetables.  Also of note were the grilled mahi mahi served with a pineapple pico de gallo and the seared scallops with sautéed spinach, Portobello mushrooms with a really yummy roasted corn and vanilla bean cream sauce.

We followed up with desserts which included a great chocolate nut brownie and a different twist on bread pudding – don’t miss this dessert when you go!  It’s made with orange juice and is much denser than a lot of bread pudding.  And yes I finished the whole thing and part of my husband’s.

 

If craft beer is your thing they have a great selection and they also have some pretty creative cocktails with names like Ginger and Mary Ann – love it!

 

Here’s a little background:  District 30’s kitchen is directed by the gifted Chef Mike Smith who has worked as sous chef at The Green Room and in the kitchens of Arcodoro/Pomodoro, Restaurant 2900. and The Common Table to name a few.  He also created the healthy menu at Utopia Food and Fitness.  There’s a lot of talent in the kitchen at District 30 and you will reap the benefits when you go.

 

District 30 has a perfect location – right on the corner of Oak Lawn and Hall Street.  It has a great patio with a view of what’s happening in this popular area.  And did I mention that the menu is reasonably priced?  Final Conclusion?  This is a great happy hour spot which just happens to have some really wonderful food.  You can’t go wrong here and I’m betting that this place will be a hit.

7 Amazing Things To Eat In Brussels

Brussels has a bamboozling mix of restaurants, food markets and fine dining haunts that are dotted around this amazing city. With so many choices, I asked locals like my friend Pierre Pevée, whom I meet through European Creative Hubs Network and Jean-Alexis Spitz, a fellow blogger from Spark.Me, and found some favorite things that are worthy of eating while you are in Brussels, Belgium.

#1. Belgian Frites from Maison Antoine. I had heard a lot about Belgium fries, but are they really different from French fries? YES! Belgium frites are made with Bintje potatoes that are double fried. This makes them  crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Why we love Maison Antoine is that they offer many sauces to dip your fries in AND the pubs around this friterie allow the fries to be eaten on their premises.

#2. Stoverij from Le Clan des BelgesAt first glance, you may mistake this hearty beef casserole for French staple boeuf bourguignon, but it’s beer, rather than wine, that the Belgians use—giving it an earthier taste. Stoverij usually comes with frites for dipping.

#3. Belgian Chocolate from Pierre MarcoliniPierre Marcolini costs a little more than other chocolaterie because he buys unprocessed cocoa beans directly from the local producers and transforms it into chocolate in his own workshop. This chocolate is worth every bite!

#4. Sirop de Liège from Chez Franz. A sweet, sticky brown jelly made from evaporated fruit juices—dates, apples, and pears are stock ingredients—Sirop de Liège trumps even European’s favorite Nutella when it comes to spreads. Smear it on a baguette for breakfast, or pair it with cheeses at lunch. Chez Franz has an amazing brunch menu, so we highly recommend that you try Sirop de Liège here.

#5. Belgian Waffles + Speculoos from Maison Dandoy
Did you know that there are two types of waffles available in Belgium? Brussels waffles are made from batter leavened with beaten eggs. It is served with powdered sugar, and Liège waffles are made from yeast-leavened dough with pearl sugar. How best to eat a waffle in Belgium is hotly contested. Locals swear waffles should be topping-free. I, however, enjoyed mine with fruit and ice cream. Belgium has an (unofficial) national cookie. These flat, spiced shortbreads are so beloved you can even get speculoos-flavored spread (what America’s call “cookie butter”)—as well as ice cream or gelato. Originally baked to celebrate St. Nicholas Day (December 6), you’ll now find them year-round, and Maison Dandoy offers the best.

#6. Paling in’t Groen from Belga Queen. Luckily, “eel in green sauce” is more appetizing than it sounds. Chunks of white, meaty eel (which has the consistency of chicken, only with a slight gamey taste) are stewed in a thick, herby sauce of sorrel and chervil—hence its bright green color. Belga Queen is a former bank, and it is the perfect backdrop while you enjoy eating this delicious green dish.

#7. Stoemp from Royal Brasserie. A staple of Brussels cuisine, stoemp blends mashed potatoes and vegetables such as Brussels sprouts, carrots, onion and kale. YUMMY! It’s usually served either as a side dish or as main dish with sausage or another type of meat or seafood.

Have we missed any dish from Brussels that everyone should try? Please comment below!

How to Throw an Epic Captain America: Civil War Party

captain-america-civil-warMy son loves the Avengers…like LOVES the Avengers. I could not tell you how many times that I have seen that movie – well, I digress. The excitement has been building in our house for the newest movie, Captain America: Civil War. Naturally, when I asked my son what he wanted his birthday party theme to be, he yelled: “Marvel!” This year, we threw an epic birthday party for his friends, and I am here to share how his party has just the right amount of epic awesomeness to get your family pumped for Captain America: Civil War. The only question remains is, are you for #TeamCap or #TeamIronMan? 😉

Themed Snacks Instead of Flashy Decorations
I am all about themed snacks. They can double as decorations, and since the point is for you and your guests to eat the snacks, it can cut down on your cleanup time after the festivities are over. Here are a few snack ideas to help get your creative juices flowing.Hulk-Juicecaptain-america-pizzateam-cap

Bring the Entertainment Home Instead of Paying for a Playhouse
Next, I had to figure out what entertainment to provide for 9 year-old boys. Thanks to my friend, Facebook, I discovered a piñata company in Kotor, Montenegro. Angela is amazing and made us an Iron Man head. We just added some hard candy into the piñata and grab the nearest scarf and broom stick – an the party festivities went up to an epic level. Then, we added a “pin-the-star on Cap’s shield” game and much fun was had. Here’s are some of the fun pictures.Iron-Man-Beforeiron-man-pinatairon-man-blastcaptain-america-shield-gamepin-the-star-captain-america

Recipe: Egg and Lemon Soup from Albania

With the colder, rainy weather lately, I have been enjoying chili and soups more. I thought that I would share this tasty egg and lemon soup (supa od jaja i limona), which I recently ate at Restaurant Shqiponja in Shkodër, Albania. This soup is popular in Albania, and it is delicious to enjoy when you are wanting to stay warm at your grandmother’s house or trying to get well with a winter cold. You could modify the recipe by adding chopped chicken to the soup. This soup is comfort food that is amazing on a cold winter day because it adds warmth and a bit of sunshine to your day! 🙂

Egg and Lemon Soup // Supa od jaja i limona

egg-lemon-soup800ml chicken broth // 800ml pileći bujon

3T flour // 30g brašno
salt and white pepper // so i bijeli biber
parsley // peršun

Melt butter in a pot and then add flour to make a roux. Add chicken broth and simmer for 10 minutes. In the meantime, beat eggs in a large bowl and add all of lemon juice and season with salt and white pepper. Take the broth off the heat, and while constantly stirring, add the broth mixture into the bowl with lemon and eggs. Then sieve the soup and leave on low heat for one minute while stirring constantly. Garnish and serve with parsley leaves.
