A Lesson In Seafood Economics

August 5, 2011

While lots of school stuff really did fall into the “things I will never need to know again” category, economics is something I use and think of every day. Thanks to rising gas prices and dropping dows, the whole world has a front row seat in Econ 101. I recently continued my real world education […]

Tales from the Raw Bar

July 6, 2011

On a recent hot, hazy day on the peninsula, I met a friend at Amen Street for a cool afternoon glass of Sauvignon Blanc or two after work. It wasn’t long before we decided to dabble in Amen’s Raw Bar selections. The menu obviously offers Amen’s famed oysters, but also presents some non-shellfish options. On […]

Because you’ll be drooling over Amen Street’s Fresh Blackberry Bread Pudding. This desert is seriously delicious, decadent and worth every, single calorie.

Sustainable Seafood: It’s What’s for Dinner

June 1, 2011

The city of Charleston is literally below sea level. This can be a bit scary during hurricane season, but it means we have access to super fresh fish year round. Most Charlestonians would agree, the risk is of a storm is worth the promise of some of the world’s greatest seafood. Not to brag or […]

Lunch with a Side of Leftover Cash

May 25, 2011

For the first time since college, my bank account has dipped below $200. While this would have been no sweat off my back a few years ago, I now have a car payment and loans to pay off. Thanks to automatic bill pay, I could find myself in an overdraft situation before payday if I’m […]
