The Post in which I Lie to You All

Jeeeeeeze Bloggies! I almost forgot about Foodie Fridays! I will not let you down. I am here for you with reviews and recipes. And I totally lied that I would not be posting, as evidenced by the fact that this is my second post today. "Hi, I'm just calling to say I won't be calling you." I need to get it together.

So, since I was in Savannah this past weekend getting hitched, these recipes will be filled with all kinds of southern goodness.

Restaurant: Vic's on the River
26 East Bay Street, Savannah, GA

What to get: Shrimp and Grits

OMG! This is where Brian and I got married, and let me just tell you: Everyone raved about the food. My Mom and I went up a few days early to enjoy the southern charm of Savannah, and we ate here every day. It's that good. Some other notable dishes include the Fried Chicken Live Sliders and the Crabcakes. And the Crawfish Beignets. And the Biscuits with orange marmalade. It's all good. Over the beautiful river, with exposed brick and white-washed ceilings and tons of wine selections, this place is a true winner.

The grits are creamy and delicious with cheddar cheese, and the shrimp come in this rosemary bbq sauce. Oh lord, so yummy. And they give you so much!! Bring a friend to share.


Momma Joanna's Mac & Cheese

This is my Mom's original recipe for Mac & Cheese. It is famous in our family. I hope it will be a hit in yours.

What you need:

1lb pasta (any kind you like, we use rotini)
8 oz Velveeta
8 oz shredded colby jack
8 oz shredded sharp cheddar
1 stick butter
1/2 - 1 cup whole milk or half and half
pinch salt

Boil pasta according to box directions. Drain well, and put back in pot over low heat. Add butter and a little milk(go slowly with the milk so it doesn't get too runny). Add half of all cheeses and stir slowly and carefully until they are almost all melted. Add a little more milk and the rest of the cheese. Stir until all melted, and add more milk as necessary. Cheese sauce should coat the pasta, but NOT be runny like soup. Serve immediately.

When you go to reheat, add a drop or two of milk so it doesn't get dry.

I hope you enjoy!!



  1. It is the best mac & cheese evah! Will be making it for Christmas.

  2. Oh good! I think she's bringing it back this Thanksgiving. I begged for it because I always take it home and eat it for days on end.
