A couple of months ago, I received the single least anticipated or welcome letter in the mail. You know the one. The one no one wants but everyone gets. The dreaded jury summons.

Welcome to Federal Hill, Insomnia Cookies!

Welcome to Federal Hill, Insomnia Cookies!
A month, or maybe even a couple of months ago, as my family and I were walking down S. Charles one evening, we noticed a new storefront. A very EXCITING storefront. A storefront for a cookie place that touted delivery until 3 in the morning!  Like I said, SUPER EXCITING!  Insomnia Cookies was coming to...

Bookmakers Cocktail Club
The past couple of weeks have been majorly busy around here, and frankly, cooking new stuff and going out to eat somewhere we’ve not been a hundred times wasn’t on our docket. However, when Michael’s mom came into town this past week, we actually decided to step out of the norm and do some new...

I NEED YOUR VOTE FOR THE MOBBIES 2015!
Hey guys! It’s me, Katie. Duh.    Back in July of 2011 I started Slow Down and Savor as a simple outlet for me to share my love of food with the “world,” or anyone who would read. I talked about the history behind club sandwiches, and scoured the internet for the luckiest foods to...

Mother’s Grille – Federal Hill

Mother’s Grille – Federal Hill
The first time I visited Mother’s Grille in Federal Hill was when I was about 7 months pregnant with Baby Jack. My husband and I were up visiting Baltimore, checking out the various neighborhoods, deciding where to live and where we’d call home in a few more months.  It was a busy Saturday afternoon service,...

We made it! My first week in Baltimore: Lots of food & fun
Whew. After three LONG days in the car and hotels with my two cats, baby and mom, I finally arrived a week ago in my new city, Baltimore, MD. I have to say, it’s amazing. The people are friendly, the city is clean and vibrant, and I can’t wait to take in more. Plus, where our house is...

Pregnancy Journal Update: Week 30

Pregnancy Journal Update: Week 30
Hey everyone.
