RM Seafood by Rick Moonen was an amazing experience. The food was amazing, the atmosphere is very mellow but also gorgeous.

Only the freshest oysters on this menu.

yummy oysters

Oysters were prepared perfectly. None were stuck in the shells and were very fresh! Absolutely delicious!

calamari

The calamari pictured above was absolutely amazing! It was extremely fresh! Fried calamari with fried sweet and spicy cherry peppers. We just could not get enough of this dish! If you are a fan of calamari this is a must have!

salmon

Salmon was cooked to perfection.

sides

Moonen’s mash and garlic spinach, two things that we could not resist trying. The mashed potatoes were creamy and delicious. The capers, red onion, and scallions were the prefect addition to this amazing side.

Back in Vegas!!

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , , at 11:22 pm by Foodie With An Agenda

So currently I am back in Vegas enjoying the 100 degree weather and experiencing some amazing food. One of the best parts of Vegas is that most of fine dining restaurants here have tasting menus which allow for getting to taste smaller portions of menu items. Get ready for reviews on RM Seafood, The Social Clubs, and many more!!

As its getting closer to fall, yes i know its still summer, but around this time i love to start cooking with pumpkin. Today i made wonderful pumpkin oat walnut bread. Its a great treat and more of a dessert or breakfast item than real bread. We love topping this bread with whipped cream!!! To die for!!!!

My trip to Bamboo Spoon

Posted in Food tagged , , , , , , , , at 8:26 pm by Foodie With An Agenda

Today was my first trip to Bamboo Spoon in Barrington and may I say that I was pleasantly surprised. I have never been to a frozen yogurt cafe but it was a treat. The staff was very helpful and explained how it worked, the only thing that would have been nice to know was how much it cost ahead of time. There were quite a few flavors and a ton of toppings and sauces.

I was not very adventurous on my first visit but will definitely be back. Today I had plain vanilla with some Reese’s peanut buttercups minis, so yummy. The vanilla yogurt was very tasty rather than the boring tasteless stuff that you think of. They have toppings from fresh fruit to fruity pebbles cereal. Highly recommend this place. Not super cheap but worth the money because you can have as much or as little as you want. Just remember prices are based on weight so the more you get the more it’s gonna cost.

Another thing that I liked about this place was that they were eco-friendly. The spoons are recyclable and they had very little furniture and the furniture they did have was plastic. We sat outside on the green plastic chairs with the black tables. Very cute little place.

My foodie vacation!!

As some of you may know I have been MIA lately, not by choice but necessary. I am hoping to be back in action eating, baking, and cooking my way through this amazing culinary world.
