Check me out in B Free Daily!

I am very excited to announce that I have been featured in today's issue of b free daily!  Excellently enough, it's an article about "foodies" and the new food culture that younger generations have created through blogging and other internet outlets.  If you're in the Baltimore area, you can pick up a copy in the orange "b" newspaper dispensers, or check it out here on pg. 12!

And this of course begs the question: what is your opinion on the new "foodies" that are cropping up all over the internet?  Foodie revolution, or "foodiots"?

Baltimore Foodies Help Needed!

My parents are coming to visit this weekend and I really have no idea where to take them to eat (which is obviously the best part)!  If you had guests coming from out of town, where would you take them for dinner?? 

I'm interested in any and all recommendations!

Taharka Bros.

As a newcomer to the Baltimore area, I am quickly finding out that one of the best things about it are all of the street festivals and fairs that seem to be going on every weekend.  I love it!  Especially because it gives me an excuse to try amazing food and sample a little bit of everything that they have to offer.  Lucky for me, some local restaurants also participate in these festivals, so I've gotten to try some places on my "To Eat" list while strolling around in the gorgeous weather.  At Flowermart this year, Taharka Bros. was set up, and I'm so glad that they were.

They have a pretty awesome list of flavors, but I knew which one I was going to get as soon as I saw it: Key Lime Pie.  Oh. My. Goodness.  It was heavenly.  I worked at an ice cream store that makes its own ice cream for 5 years, so I'm a little bit of a snob about these things, but this ice cream is amazing.  Creamy and surprisingly strong citrus flavors with an amazing graham cracker crust mixed in.  Yum!  G got a chocolate brownie flavor (not sure exactly what it was called) and it was also amazing.  I love desserts that have amazing flavor, but aren't sickeningly sweet and these ice creams fit the bill.

Besides having great ice cream, this business really does amazing things for Baltimore and its citizens.  They employ at-risk youth and train them in business skills.  From their website:
Taharka Brothers is a venture of the Sylvan Beach Foundation, Inc. Sylvan Beach is a non-profit foundation which functions to assist at-risk Baltimore youth and teaches them the intricacies of business strategy and entrepreneurship with the ultimate goal that each of these student-workers will found his own business prior to his graduation from the program.

Amazing.  Go there! Find them on the streets! Just support this awesome venture.
