Month: June 2008
Every summer, some of the best restaurants in Miami offer a Miami Spice menu. The menu consists of three course meals at one set price; Lunch is $23 and Dinner is $36. Of course, due to the reduced prices, the portions are smaller than usual, but definitely enough to leave with a full belly. It’s the perfect opportunity to try out some of the swankest Miami eats without breaking your wallet.
A handful of the participating restaurants are offering a Sneak Preview from June 16-23, so check ’em out here. Otherwise, you can try them out during the ENTIRE month of both August AND September. Local blogger, MenuPages has a fantastic “unofficial” guide for the restaurants and their menus. If you live here, or find yourself in Miami during August or September, Spice it UP!

When Stephan and I go to Germany to visit his parents, we tend to spend quite a bit of time walkingin the cities.Just generally enjoying the diverse scenery which is the opposite of Florida. One thing I noticed my first time visiting, were the bakeries on every corner. By bakeries, I mean GOOD bakeries. They are perfect to stop in for a little snack while shopping or sightseeing.
Kaesestangen is a deliciousGerman specialty that is thin bread with shredded cheese on top. It looks similar to pizza, but it is made like a pretzel, as it isboiled before baking. You can also find it with small cubes of Schinken (ham) on top, which is my guilty pleasure… although I don’t eat much ham. I tried to find a recipe for this online, but I had no luck, so I just made my usual pretzel recipe and topped with cheese before baking.
