  • A Southern meal at a Lexington icon, @ramseysdiners. Fun fact: Ramsey’s catered my wedding back in 2011!
  • The Kentucky Bourbon Butter cake from @bhg_restaurants is hands down the best dessert known to man. I’ve been getting it for years and years anytime it is a Chef’s Feature.

It has three layers of buttery cake and bourbon ganache, studded with chocolate and pecans, frosted with bourbon icing, drizzled with bourbon honey and topped with candied walnut-bacon crumb 😋😋😋
  • Over the weekend, I drove up to Cincinnati and saw the Dodgers play the Reds on both Saturday and Sunday. I’m so glad we only live a little over an hour away from GABP!! Unlike Sunday, Saturday was super hot, so I got a cone of one of my fave @graeters flavors - Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip!! 😋

  • West Sixth Nachos from @saulgoodpub. These are crispy corn tortilla chips piled with grilled steak, a five-cheese blend, beer cheese made with local brewery West 6th Amber Ale, scallions, fresh jalapeños, cilantro, sea salt and lime.
  • On Saturday, I got to attend the VIP Preview of @larosaspizzeria. They have some amazing garlic fries, which is the closest thing I’ve found in Kentucky to the garlic fries they have at Dodger Stadium.

The Smashed Cannoli is such the perfect little dessert. It has smashed cannoli shells topped with cannoli filling, mini chocolate chips, chopped cherries and powdered sugar and served with cannoli chips 😋😋😋
  • 🚨NEW FLAVOR ALERT at @crankandboom - Small Batch Friday🚨 Let me introduce you to Cookie Dough. It’s cookie infused ice cream with chocolate chip cookie dough chunks and mini chocolate chips!! Go get it y’all before it’s gone!!
  • YOU’RE KILLING ME SMALLS. Just about every single day, my TV is tuned into my favorite team, the Dodgers (well every day they have a game). Over the weekend, we decided to check out Kentucky Proud Park and watch one of the @kentuckybaseball games. It was such a great afternoon of fun and fun to check out the new park!When I saw this baseball shirt from @shoplocalky paying homage to The Sandlot, I knew I just had to have it!!
  • The mint julep is a Kentucky Derby staple. Each year, nearly 120,000 of them are served during the two-day event (between Oaks and Derby Day) at the Churchill Downs Racetrack!

Churchill Downs uses 254,000 ounces of bourbon (or over 10,000 750 milliliter bottles), 300 crates of mint (about 4,000 pounds of locally sourced stuff from Louisville, Kentucky’s Dohn Gardens) and 60,000 pounds of ice to make their juleps.

Do you like mint juleps?! Yum or yuck?!
  • The 145th Kentucky Derby is this weekend aka “the greatest two minutes in sports.” So do me a favor y’all, head to @carsons_lexington and order the Derby Pie Bites. They are fried Derby pie with caramel and chocolate and served warm with vanilla bean ice cream. They are so good you won’t want to share!!
  • April showers bring May flowers!! Happy first day of May!!
  • This past Sunday was Fyre Festival Day at @lexingtonlegends!! The real Fyre Festival was supposed to have two years ago, so for its anniversary they even had gourmet food options for $2 and VIP villas just like they did at the real #FyreFestival 😂😂😂
