Local Eats: Fodder & Shine

Good morning and happy weekend! Hope yours is off to a good start. I know mine is! This past week, I had the chance to try out a restaurant here in Tampa, Fodder & Shine. I’ve only been once before and only had an appetizer so this time around, my friend and I ordered a few things. 

Boy, we did not go wrong! We started with the cornbread and nachos. But they weren’t tortilla chips, they were potato chips. Which was even better and they were loaded with meat and beans and so much more.

The cornbread was the perfect amount and was so tasty. Both my friend and I had gotten the chicken biscuit sandwich as our meal which was pretty big for us and the right amount. It was delicious. You can never go wrong with biscuits and fried chicken especially in the south 😉 

Lastly, us Cuban gals had to get dessert which was a chocolate layered devil cake. I was thinking it was going to be a normal sliced cake but I was totally wrong. It was a big portion but worth it. I love chocolate and this cake had the perfect amount of richness. I really suggest it if you all get the chance to go. 

That’s all I have for now. Stay tuned for more fun reviews and local eats! xx 

Girls Weekends are ALWAYS the Best

Good morning my loves! I hope you all had a great President’s Day weekend. I know I did. Minus the fact working yesterday, it was still a nice time. This past weekend, I made a trip to Jacksonville to see some friends. On Saturday, we also got the chance to go to St. Augustine since it was only 40 minutes away.

It was supposed to rain but it turned into a beautiful day of shopping, enjoying the sunshine and lots of food. We stopped by a Cuban CafĂ©, shops to get some souvenirs amongst other things, Scarlett O’Hara’s for cocktails and FRIED BISCUITS…so good and the list goes on.

If only I had more time up in Jacksonville, I could’ve had a beach day too. Crazy how it’s the end of February and here in Florida, we can still tan while everywhere else is so cold. We are some lucky ducks!

Hopefully you all have made your way to St. Augustine by now. You’ll have to go check out the history, shops, and southern hospitality. Some of the photos I got are below. From the scenery, food like the fried biscuits, cafĂ© con leche, guava and cheese pastele. SO GOOD y’all. I will leave you on that note and hope you have an awesome rest of your day 😉
