Foodie in Miami emerges from the crumbs.

I’m Foodie in Miami, formerly on Wix, now on Word Press.

I would say I’m a phoenix rising from the ashes, but that’s cliche and crumbs works better for a food writer/blogger. True to form, I have some pretzel crumbs toasting in the oven for a New York Times cookie recipe claiming to be “almost too good to share”; I am planning on bringing it to my Pinecrest Garden Club field trip tomorrow to share with other members. Mostly because I want to try the recipe, but don’t trust myself with a pan full of delicious pretzel shortbread cookies.

I love food in all forms and am the former Miami Dining Examiner. I held that post for three years, writing restaurant reviews and reporting on food related news. Foodie in Miami continues that theme, but expands it with personal essays and recipes from my life. I’m also going to profile local chefs, food figures and groups.

I’m the mother to three adult children, stepmother to three daughters and Gigi to one beloved grandson, Wyatt. I love spending time in the Keys and researching best Happy Hours in the Keys (research has been going on for three years.) I am still in search of the perfect Margarita in the Keys.

I will be bringing you reviews about Miami food institutions, hole-in-the-wall foodie finds and the latest hot spots, as well as restaurant news. My garden is full of tropical fruits and vegetables and I will be sharing photos of that, as we go through the seasons, as well as ways to use up the bounty.

I’m very excited to be re-launching Foodie in Miami and hope you will join me in my journey!

Born and raised in Miami, the daughter of a pilot and stay-at-home Mom, I love food in all forms. My great grandfather opened the first Italian restaurant in Miami in the 20's, The Boathouse on the Miami river. I love exploring my heritage and linking food and recipes to personal stories. I've been published in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Food and Love and wrote restaurant reviews and news as the Miami Dining Examiner for three years. I love exploring Miami's latest hot spots, hole in the walls and institutions. I'm always looking for innovative ways to use the plethora of tropical fruits and vegetables South Florida offers, especially from my own garden.
