Hey guys. Happy holidays and New Year weekend! I hope everyone had a happy, healthy and fun holiday! I can’t believe we’re officially in 2018. It’s so crazy to me. I feel like we were on a really calm, fun ride, like a kid’s train ride at an amusement park, nice and slow, easy going...

Here we are, yet again, talking about the historic Cross Street Market in the Federal Hill neighborhood of Baltimore, MD, for the 3rd time. I suppose we can call it a series at this point, right? I mean, when a space like the Cross Street Market gets new life by adding 4 new grub-spots at...

As I mentioned in my previous post Federal Hill’s humble and historic indoor market – Cross Street Market – is experiencing a long-overdo revitalization.

Cottage Pie, comfort food for when it finally feels like fall.
I don’t know about where you guys live, but where I live here in Baltimore, MD, it hadn’t quite felt like fall for the majority of September and October. Seriously, not until yesterday did it feel moderately fall-ish. I swear Mother Earth didn’t get the memo on September 22nd that autumn had arrived, because it...

Genevieve is here! A Labor Story.
If you’re a regular here at Slow Down and Savor, you will have noticed some serious radio silence from me. I apologize. But there’s a good reason, I swear! Well, 2 good reasons, actually.
