About Lori

About Lori: Well, if you’ve gotten this far, thanks for clicking on my blog! I’ve been fond of food in a “tell you all about it and in great detail” way for over 20 years. My desire to eventually get back to being skinny is unfortunately undermined by my desire to enjoy a menu without constraint. I am a Nashville girl who loves a good meal and remembers everything about it. I grew up in Franklin, met my husband after college, and traveled for 8 years before settling back in Williamson County. Coming back home has been wonderful to experience all the amazing restaurants that have hit the Nashville scene. Everywhere from 12 South to Midtown to Germantown to the Gulch and East Nashville- there is something special going on in and around Music City. I am mom to 3 elementary kids who get toted to all the Farmers Markets around town each week. I, in turn, get toted to basketball, soccer, gymnastics, and all the friends’ birthday parties that keep our Saturdays full. Thankfully, I have a respite of meal time- 3 times a day. And it is with great enthusiasm that I get lost in thought about where I am going to enjoy my next meal. Cheers to all the best bites around town. Hope to hit them all!
