Well Ok Po-keh!!! This bowl runneth over with fresh ingredients and flavor. You walk in and are faced with a million choices. Suddenly life seems so complex and you’ve been tasked with sorting it all out...in come the Southfin employees. To make sense of life for you. Trust them. Then eat. I LOVE THIS PLACE. Swipe left to see what shameless looks like. There was this guy in line behind us who got a beautiful bowl and I wanted so badly to ask him if i could take a picture. Then I look up and it’s @tab_ballard. 😂. He happily obliged. Perks of small town living. Go see him this Christmas season for a beautiful Oregon-grown Fir. He will even deliver it to your home!! @stfrancistrees ~Laura~ . . . . . #foodie #foodstagram #foodblog #foodblogger #foodjournal #brfoodie #nolafoodie #I10foodie #225eats #iambr #geauxeatbr #eatlocal #brmoms #geauxlocal #ilovefood #louisiana #feedyoursoul #eatbatonrouge #batonrougefood #idigbr #louisianafood #bebatonrouge #downtownbr #digbatonrouge #poke #southfin #hawaiifoodie #christmastree
I had to meet Mom today to pick up Michael Aiden in Lafayette, so we decided to do lunch. Blog Op 💪🏼. Except it wasn’t good 😩. Hate when that happens....I should’ve known when Michael Aiden ordered a Coke and “Rudy” asked if Pepsi was ok....it is most certainly NOT okay. I consider it a bad omen...I mean sure bring the Pepsi. Is Monopoly money ok? So I’m posting instead about a place Mom keeps gushing over from her travels with Mr. Jim to the northeast. @florinapizza in the Beacon Hill neighborhood of #Boston . When people love to make food, the food tastes better. This is Barry. And he really wants to cook for you. She said they had about four tables in the restaurant, but when lunchtime rolls around, the line is down the street. Barry says “12 minutes tops from the back to the front”. Most of that is locals grabbing a slice of pizza on their lunch break, but they have SO much more to offer. Mom said their crust is the best she’s ever had - and even their Pepsi tasted good 🙊. Check them out. And keep your eyes peeled for the legend @costaphobia “Hey” from #louisiana 👋🏼❤️ ~Laura~ . . . . . . . #foodie #foodstagram #foodblog #foodblogger #foodjournal #brfoodie #nolafoodie #I10foodie #225eats #iambr #geauxeatbr #eatlocal #brmoms #geauxlocal #iammidcity #ilovefood #feedyoursoul #eatbatonrouge #batonrougefood #idigbr #louisianafood #bebatonrouge #drinkbatonrouge #bostonmass #eatboston #pizza
Y’all I swear I’m not getting paid to post about this place. But @litpizza is on 🔥 with this #figandprosciutto pizza. I know I said I was going to start eating better but i HAD to come back for this pizza, and I’m so glad I did. A sweet fig spread as the base, white sauce drizzle, goat cheese crumbles, slices of prosciutto, carmelized onions, blast-fired, then topped with arugula and balsamic glaze 🔥🎉💥. A little tip: don’t alter the ingredients that they use on this pizza but DO add a little extra goat cheese crumbles before they fire it 💫 Swipe left to see the evolution of a masterpiece. ~Laura~ . . . . . . #foodie #foodstagram #foodblog #foodblogger #foodjournal #brfoodie #nolafoodie #lcfoodie #I10foodie #225eats #iambr #geauxeatbr #eatlocal #brmoms #geauxlocal #iammidcity #ilovefood #louisiana #feedyoursoul #eatbatonrouge #batonrougefood #idigbr #louisianafood #bebatonrouge #drinkbatonrouge #downtownbr #digbatonrouge #pizza #prosciutto
When the popular Harrington’s Cafe closed its doors at 329 Florida street a year or so ago, something delightful rose up in its place. @cafemimibtr and their #vermicellibowl 🌟Louis and I (and our fried chicken tag along) ate lunch here. I ordered the bowl, the pho, and the spring rolls. All the food was fresh-tasting but that vermicelli bowl (with pork) was the best by a long shot. Pour on the sauce that comes with it. It was clean and the service was fast and friendly.

Alright. Full disclosure. I’ve gained 7 pounds behind this blog and some #eldoradorum 🤦🏼‍♀️ I’m closer to 40 than 30. Weekday pirate drinking will not put me in that #Vegas body in time for May. I’m going to try to order better-for-you foods when I go out. Wish me luck.... Today we stayed relatively close to home and had @litpizza for lunch at their Zachary location. Loved it. Their special for the month was Fig and Prosciutto pizza 🙊🙊🙊🙊. It took some real restraint to not order it. I at least wanted a picture of it though...if I had seen anybody at a different table with it, I would not have been above snapping a picture as I attempted small talk with them 😂. I ordered a custom salad and Honey boo boo had pepperoni pizza - hold the pepperonis... I will be back on a Saturday for that special 🙌🏼 ~Laura~ . . . . . #foodie #foodstagram #foodblog #foodblogger #foodjournal #brfoodie #nolafoodie #lcfoodie #I10foodie #225eats #iambr #geauxeatbr #eatlocal #brmoms #geauxlocal #iammidcity #comegetstuffed #ilovefood #louisiana #feedyoursoul #eatbatonrouge #batonrougefood #idigbr #louisianafood #bebatonrouge #drinkbatonrouge #drinklakecharles #digbatonrouge
My whole family uses one chocolate chip cookie recipe that either my great grandmother or my grandmother discovered before I was ever born. It’s like a right of passage for a woman in our family to perfect her CC cookies according to this recipe. Imagine the horror my grandmother displayed when I told her I strayed from the gospel of chocolate chip cookies and discovered my own (that didn’t call for crisco...) She tried to be cool about it but it was obviously NOT cool. . . Disinherited Chocolate Chip Cookies 3/4c packed br sugar 1/4c granulated sugar 1 stick melted BUTTER 1 large egg 2 tsp vanilla extract *mix all these together 1 2/3c all purpose flour 2 tsp cornstarch 1 tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp *mix these then add to the “wet” ingredients. Add choc chips (or don’t) Bake at 350 for like 10-14 mins. Last step: tell Meemaw her recipe is still better than this one 😂 ~Laura~ . . . . #louisianafood #bebatonrouge #drinkbatonrouge #drinklakecharles #digbatonrouge #cookathome #lunchdate #cookies #chocolatechipcookies #bake
Currently watching the #LSU game while pretending to do paperwork. This #avocado and #salmon #toast is really hitting the spot. I topped it with @bayouboysspice that I bought today from @calvinsbocagemarket - It has a lemon-ish tang that fits well with the creole spice base and 70% less sodium than other leading creole seasoning brands 🙌🏼. It also tastes better when you eat it in bed. #geauxtigahs . ~Laura~ . . . . . . #gamedayfood #gameday #deathvalley #purpleandgold
Went out to eat last night with some friends. The lighting in the restaurant was similar to a dungeon so no pictures were taken. Actually that’s not true. One picture was taken of me doing my best jack sparrow impersonation. 🤦🏼‍♀️. Y’all. So here’s a picture of a goose at @watermarkbr We actually ended up there for some cocktails. I don’t know who the bartender was but he makes one hell of an old fashioned 💪🏼#geauxtigahs
I had a dream about shrimp and grits last night. I was apparently in Vegas and won $41 million playing #keno . Then I ate shrimp and grits. Best night of my life. 😂 ~Laura~ . . . . . #foodie #foodstagram #foodblog #foodblogger #foodjournal #brfoodie #nolafoodie #lcfoodie #I10foodie #225eats #iambr #geauxeatbr #eatlocal #brmoms #geauxlocal #iammidcity #comegetstuffed #ilovefood #louisiana #eatbatonrouge #batonrougefood #idigbr #louisianafood #bebatonrouge #drinkbatonrouge #drinklakecharles #digbatonrouge #cookathome
Next month’s goal: order something other than seared tuna. I don’t know i can though 🤦🏻‍♀️. Ate @williesbr today and had the best server Heather. She was so patient with all my “what should I order” questions. Audrey had the fried catfish and actually ate it so I think it was good. I didn’t get a bite... My #tacos had woah!sabi sauce and I wish I had ordered a measuring cup full on the side. #ilovesauce . ~Laura~
“Hey girl. Want a beer?” 🍺 I’m a rum girl but this place has EVERYTHING. Bring your date, bring your dad, bring your grandma. And the food is slamming too. ~Laura~ . . . . . . #foodie #foodstagram #foodblog #foodblogger #foodjournal #brfoodie #nolafoodie #lcfoodie #I10foodie #225eats #iambr #geauxeatbr #eatlocal #brmoms #geauxlocal #iammidcity #comegetstuffed #ilovefood #louisiana #eatbatonrouge #batonrougefood #idigbr #louisianafood #bebatonrouge #drinkbatonrouge #drinklakecharles #digbatonrouge
I. Love. Cheese. There are people in this world like my sister friend @mrscassels who can cook a spaghetti sauce that is TO DIE FOR and when you ask her for the recipe, she gives you a list of ingredients...no measurements. Not because it’s a secret - because she doesn’t use them 🤯. If *I* tried to pull a stunt like that, it would taste like a seven year old’s version of Mother’s Day breakfast in bed. Think waffles and ketchup. Sitting at home today trying to not go out to eat... ~Laura~ . . Honey’s Tomato Salad -3 handfuls of washed and chopped heirloom tomatoes -1 avocado chopped -S/P to taste -2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar -2 tablespoons red wine vinegar Mix all these together and dust with grated Parmesan. . . . #foodie #foodstagram #foodblog #foodblogger #foodjournal #brfoodie #nolafoodie #lcfoodie #I10foodie #225eats #iambr #geauxeatbr #eatlocal #brmoms #geauxlocal #iammidcity #comegetstuffed #ilovefood #louisiana #eatbatonrouge #batonrougefood #idigbr #louisianafood #bebatonrouge #drinkbatonrouge #drinklakecharles #digbatonrouge #cookathome #tomatoes #avocado
If you have doubts, order the sprouts. Sorry I had to 🙌🏼. But honestly I have never gone anywhere, ordered brussels, and not been completely smitten with them. (Sounds dramatic but you must not realize how much I love food 😂). Best ones I’ve ever had came from @lukeneworleans. Been meaning to make a pilgrimage back there just for those brussels. Happy Hump Day!!! ~Laura~ . . . . . . . #foodie #foodstagram #foodblog #foodblogger #foodjournal #brfoodie #nolafoodie #lcfoodie #I10foodie #225eats #iambr #geauxeatbr #eatlocal #brmoms #geauxlocal #iammidcity #comegetstuffed #ilovefood #louisiana #eatbatonrouge #brussels #brusselsprouts #grilled #fork #lunch #veggies
Change of plans...I found myself close to @flambeecafe today. I had zero expectations as i had never even heard of this place. I did a quick menu search to make sure fried chicken or fish was on the menu (🤦🏼‍♀️) then the Hurricane and I walked in. Y’all this place is SO cool. It has a very French-Americana vibe that reminds me of a bachelorette morning-after, or a quick lunch date with your quirky single aunt. The menu is unique with items like “Salm I Am” (pictured above) and “Ratatouille”. Honey Boo Boo ordered her chicken nuggets and was quickly appalled by their flame-broiled “herby” taste. She just wanted her cheese puffs. 🙄 1) eat here soon 2) leave your whiny picky eaters at home. ~Laura~ . . . . . #foodie #foodstagram #foodblog #foodblogger #foodjournal #brfoodie #nolafoodie #lcfoodie #I10foodie #225eats #iambr #geauxeatbr #eatlocal #brmoms #geauxlocal #iammidcity #comegetstuffed #ilovefood #louisiana #eatbatonrouge #batonrougefood #idigbr #louisianafood #bebatonrouge #drinkbatonrouge #drinklakecharles #brusselsprouts #salmon #aioli #avocado
I’m going to make more of an effort to visit local grocery delis. Hidden gems like this #creole #chickensalad from @rousesmarkets south of #batonrouge , are just waiting to be found. We also bought a few seasoned hamburger patties that were huge and exploding with flavor. Specifically the #bayouboy burger. ~Laura~ . . . . . . #foodie #foodstagram #foodblog #foodblogger #foodjournal #brfoodie #nolafoodie #lcfoodie #I10foodie #225eats #iambr #geauxeatbr #eatlocal #brmoms #geauxlocal #iammidcity #comegetstuffed #ilovefood #louisiana #eatbatonrouge #batonrougefood #idigbr #louisianafood #bebatonrouge #drinkbatonrouge #drinklakecharles
There’s an #oldfashioned movement happening among the 30-somethings as a new-found appreciation for #bourbon and all things #whiskey emerges. Because I’m #jacksparrow , I had my husband make me one using #eldoradorum . It was stellar. But we didn’t write it down 👌🏼🙄. So if you have an old fashioned recipe for rum, please send it to me and I will post it!! An Old Fashioned isn’t an Old Fashioned without bitters. Head over to @twine_br for @woodfordreserve bitters. Excellent quality and a couple drops go a long way. SMOKE AND BARREL HAPPENING NOVEMBER 10th IN LAKE CHARLES!!! FREE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC!!! Food and drink available for purchase. Cheers!!! 🥃 ~Laura~
I was sitting at the @knockknockchildrensmuseum waiting for William to finish assembling his cloud, when I entered into a conversation about food with two others moms. (It’s funny how i will avoid all eye contact that may evolve into actual social interaction, but if I hear someone discussing food - good food - I will join in a conversation without the slightest nod of an invitation). Anyhow. Someone said try @twine_br on government for lunch. I had Bessy and Bill with me, so fried crap was a requirement for dining out. They had grilled cheese and chicken tenders. #lesgo . This is a fresh meat market and deli with options like Indian Curry Chicken Salad Sandwich and Sushi Pizza 🔥. I also bought a chicken pot pie for Bud to try this evening. It’s heartiness will be judged by the staunchest critic 😂. I got the seared tuna, and after the first bite, I instantly regretted not ordering more. . ~Laura~ . . . . . . . #foodie #foodstagram #foodblog #foodblogger #foodjournal #brfoodie #I10foodie #225eats #iambr #geauxeatbr #eatlocal #brmoms #geauxlocal #iammidcity #comegetstuffed #ilovefood #louisiana #eatbatonrouge #tuna #avocado #cucumber #aioli #searedtuna #deli #meatmarket #lsu #eatbr
1) If you are OCD-ish look away. I didn’t straighten the plate because #hurricaneaudrey and I can’t straighten the picture bc there are checker blocks on the tablecloth. 😖THIS HAS BEEN THE SUMMATION OF MY SEPTEMBER THUS FAR. 2) I know it’s #nationalcheeseburgerday but I don’t eat red meat if I can help it and this #blackenedsalmon sandwich from @brewbachers looked DIVINE so I rolled with it. I’ve caught nearly every single red light today - which makes me homicidal- and forgot my deodorant this morning. It felt good to make a conscious healthy decision in ordering the fish..... Then I ordered fried okra. #doyou ~Laura~ . . . . . . . #foodie #foodstagram #foodblog #foodblogger #foodjournal #brfoodie #I10foodie #225eats #iambr #geauxeatbr #eatlocal #brmoms #geauxlocal #iammidcity #comegetstuffed #ilovefood #louisiana #salmon #frenchfries #sandwich #prettyfoodtastesbetter #avocado #eatbatonrouge #eatlouisiana
Sometimes the food just poses for you. Flashing back to last week when I ate tomato pie from @elsiesplatenpie and angels started to sing.

I needed #bananasfosterfrenchtoast to go with my new favorite rum #pamperoaniversario . Zero burn, all the smoothness of an older dark rum. According to the bartender at @oliveortwistbr , Venezuelan dark rums are the best. This one for sure beats all the rest that I’ve tried. Sip it #neat . Sip it slow. ~Laura~ . . . . . . . . #foodie #foodstagram #foodblog #foodblogger #foodjournal #brfoodie #I10foodie #225eats #iambr #geauxeatbr #eatlocal #geauxlocal #darkrum #oliveortwist #jacksparrow #drinkbr #cocktails #happyhour #pirate #frenchtoast #breakfast
And @thegregorybr does it again 🖤 Louis ordered the hangover - fitting for the night we had... and I ordered the Forever Green. It was two fried green tomatoes topped with crab meat, Hollandaise sauce, and an egg over easy. The pictures I took of it didn’t do it justice. If you end up brunching here, ask for the scrambled eggs with mayonnaise.

“I have a plan” *shovels another forkful of mind-blowing tomato pie into my mouth* “we are going to eat here every single day and order something different every time until we’ve tried everything on the menu. You ok with that, Audrey?” “Ok!! Sho!!” (Sure). @elsiesplatenpie was perfect. We were the first ones at the door waiting for it to open at 11:00, and by the time 11:35 rolled around, there was a wait list. College kids, bikers, business people, retirees, hipsters, little gray-haired ladies from the bridge club....and a nurse with her blonde-haired hurricane. There’s something for everyone. This place just reminds me of home. I can imagine what it was like for Chef Paul Dupré to grow up in his grandmother Elsie Rupe’s kitchen. From the way it tastes, it was heaven.

FACT: it is easier to photograph a two and half year old than it is to photograph this bowl of shrimp and grits. I got two shots and had to start eating. 😳 if you don’t order it, someone else will. Maybe they will let you taste it lol. I ate at Simple Joe Cafe today for lunch. I needed gravy and Messy Bessy needed pancakes and milk. It’s a shopping center hole in the wall that is little-known to non-locals. It’s a showcase for local art that serves coffee, breakfast, brunch, and lunch from morning until mid afternoon everyday. It’s family-owned and, quite simply, quaint. This #shrimpandgrits is anything but quaint, however. It’s exploding with home-cooked #creole #louisiana flavor. Come on an empty stomach and bring a friend. (So you can order a second bowl and not be embarrassed 😂) Coming back for the #kickassfrenchtoast soon. . ~Laura~ . . . . . #foodie #foodstagram #foodblog #foodblogger #foodjournal #brfoodie #I10foodie #225eats #cafe #simplejoecafe #shrimp #grits #batonrougeeats #batonrouge #midcitybr #soulfood #goodfood #iambr #geauxeatbr #eatlocal #brmoms #geauxlocal #iammidcity
#Repost @fatgirlsfreed with @get_repost ・・・ Word of the day - Poke (POH-KEH). It means “chunks of meat” in Hawaiian. I visited @southfinpoke today on Perkins. I had just worked out and didn’t want anything heavy. PERFECT choice. Start with a base (sweet potato noodles ⭐️) and build using fresh fish (tuna ⭐️) or chicken. Pick a sauce (miso sauce⭐️) and add some sides like edamame or crab salad. Grab a bottled water or their delicious mango strawberry mint water. The staff is super friendly and are happy to help you. They WANT you to love this food like they do!! It’s seriously refreshing. Like mama pouring some love into her rice and gravy.

Looking forward to this weekend’s date night @therumhousebatonrouge. I’ve been eyeballing a quesadilla on their menu that I’m dying to try. Also looking to take another flight. Rum flight, that is. Pictured here is #eldoradorum . The older the bottle, the smoother the sip. But the taste, in my opinion, is best flavored at 12 years. ~Laura~ . . . . . . . #foodie #foodstagram #foodblog #foodblogger #foodjournal #foodporn #I10restaurant #brfoodie #I10foodie #rum #darkrum #rumflight #eatbr #225eats #jacksparrow #carribeancuisine #sip #killdevil
