Feature of the Week: Feb. 21-27


A Taste of Heaven would not exist if it were not for the audience, so I want to show my appreciation by dedicating Thursdays to the fans. If you eat or make a dish of your own and its camera ready, then you can email me your photos. I will review and post them on Thursday.  It’s important to remember presentation, style, and taste. I look forward to seeing your Taste of Heaven.

Description: I believe breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I always try to fill my fridge with healthy snacks and breakfast items. Since I’m a student, it’s hard to balance a busy schedule with nothing on the stomach, but somehow I make it work. This taste of heaven is French toast with fresh berries, walnuts, whipped cream, and turkey bacon. I’m in love with this feature just because it’s contains French toast!!! The berries and syrup are the perfect assets and the turkey bacon is definitely a plus. It looks filling, sweet, and delicious. (Side Note: My mouth is watering in class.) Great Job Darren!!!

Peachy


It’s been a long week, and you’re dying for a break. Well, I have the perfect solution. Every Wednesday I will offer a drink to the viewers for “Whine Down Wednesdays.” You don’t have to wait until the weekend arrives to enjoy a great drink. Take a break and have a sip of A Taste of Heaven. 

I was hanging out with the girls and we started craving for food and drinks. We kept it simple and ventured to Taco Mac for basketball, drinks, and dinner. This taste of heaven is a Peach margarita on the rocks. Initially, I was thrown off by the color of the drink, but after I took a sip, I knew everything was peachy. I’m not a lover of salted rims, so I chose sugar instead. Taco Mac offers a variety of margarita flavors, so I added the peach to my list. Besides this one, I recommend the raspberry or the blackberry margarita. It was my first time trying this margarita on the rocks, but it does taste stronger than the frozen. If you’re trying to turn up, then I would suggest ordering it over the rocks.

FYI: Taco Mac

FOOD TIP: Peaches are 89 percent water.

Description: The mushy gushy holiday that we’ve all been waiting for has arrived. Yes, I’m taking about Valentine’s Day. If you have a crush or a significant other, now is the time to express your love for them. Dinner, romantic getaways, and champagne are a few of the sweet things you can give your valentine. This taste of heaven is a bouquet of heart shaped pineapples, chocolate covered strawberries, and grapes. Edible bouquets are a creative way to surprise someone and they're perfect for keeping the sparkle in your relationship. Beautiful feature Kourtney!!! :D

The Baby Drinks


 

It’s been a long week, and you’re dying for a break. Well, I have the perfect solution. Every Wednesday I will offer a drink to the viewers for “Whine Down Wednesdays.” You don’t have to wait until the weekend arrives to enjoy a great drink. Take a break and have a sip of A Taste of Heaven. 

I had just landed in Atlanta airport, and I was eager to grab brunch in with my friends and family. Since we were close to Midtown, we ventured to Joe’s on Juniper. Not only were going for brunch, but we were also going to celebrate my cousin’s 21st birthday. Finally, my baby cousin was old enough to have drinks with me. Since she was a newbie to the scene, I wanted her first drink to be “cute.” This taste of heaven is a Pineapple Upside Down martini. Its whipped vodka, pineapple juice, and grenadine. The Pineapple Upside Down martini is similar to the shot from Ray’s New York Pizza; the only difference is the martini glass that it’s served in. I wanted to start her off small because our next stop was the Daiquiri Factory. (Side Note: Kevin Hart voice: “It’s about to go DOWN!”)


FOOD TIP: Pinnacle martinis are only $5 at Joe's on Juniper.

Diner Dinners


I can never figure out what I want for dinner. Sometimes I want seafood, and other times I want soul food, Mexican, barbecue, Caribbean, or Chinese. Since I’m so indecisive, diners are usually the best choice for me. Before we went out in Washington D.C., we visited The Diner for dinner. This taste of heaven is cornmeal crusted catfish, macaroni and cheese, and sautéed spinach. The catfish taste like it was fresh from the water, and it was lightly fried golden the way I like it. The macaroni and cheese was extra cheesy, and the spinach was cooked with fresh garlic and butter. After I took the first bite, I couldn’t put my fork down. I was anxious for more (Side Note: I was debating on ordering another round).

FYI: The Diner

FOOD TIP: Spinach can be grown year around.

Acworth Mardi Gras


Normally, I would be in New Orleans for Mardi Gras right now, but I had to make other arrangements this year. Every time I visit, I stop at the daiquiri spot, then I visit Manhattan Seafood for shrimp, gumbo and crawfish. I always look forward to eating and drinking all day. My whole trip consists of nothing, but fun times and family. Since I’m not in the Cajun City, I had to find the closest thing to me. This taste of heaven is a Shrimp Po’ Boy from Henry’s Louisiana Grill. It’s Cajun fried shrimp, tomato, lettuce, and remoulade sauce on French bread. If you haven’t had a Po’Boy yet, then you’re missing out BIG TIME. Henry’s Louisiana Grill is one of my favorite spots in Acworth, Georgia. The restaurant is Mardi Gras inspired, so the interior is filled with colorful beads, jazz music, and friendly people. It’s always a party going on and the food is always on point. Yum Yum!!!

FYI: Henry's Louisiana Grill

FOOD TIP: Henry’s Louisiana Grill was opened in 2000.

Graffiti





  

I was riding in the car and then suddenly something caught my attention. There was man on the side of a little building spray painting a lime green colored design. Mind you, it’s freezing outside and this man is focused on creating a beautiful art piece for I’m Dying for Daddy’s D’z BBQ Joynt. After I dropped my cousin off to school, I had to stop at the little “joynt” on the corner. This taste of heaven is a pulled pork sandwich with collard greens, baked beans, and black eyed peas. The pulled pork is smothered with spicy hickory barbecue sauce, then its loaded on buttery Texas toast. In my opinion, the best pulled pork sandwiches are messy. The bread is soggy from delicious barbecue sauce, and the pork is tender and smoked to perfection. For the longest time, I have been hunting for the best BBQ places in Atlanta, and I think I’ve found one to add to the list. I’m Dying for Daddy’s D’z BBQ Joynt is a warm and inviting restaurant that offers all the BBQ favorites. I’m already planning my next visit; I’m going to try the ribs and macaroni and cheese next.

FYI: I'm Dying for Daddy's D'z BBQ Joynt

FOOD TIP: I would order your meal to-go, so you'll get a bigger portion. :D
