Where to Brunch : Cannon Green

Cannon Green Restaurant Charleston

Prior to testing out Cannon Green, Hominey Grill was secured as my favorite brunch spot in Charleston. Now, it’s tied with Cannon Green. While we were in town for the Southern Blog Society conference, a few of us tested out the new spot and instantly fell in love with the hospitable staff, delicious cocktails and the beautiful space. There couldn’t be a prettier spot for entertaining and I’m already brainstorming a reason to host something there….

Their new latin summer brunch is out.of.this.world good. We started with the blue corn and lobster hushpuppies, baby beet salad and heirloom tomatoes. All of which were amazing. Main courses included the frittata (pictured in the blue dish below- SO good!), french toast and a few orders of the diabala roja. Toss in a mixture of mimosas, coffee and fun brunch cocktails and we were one content group of ladies.

If you’re headed to Charleston in the near future, add this spot to your brunch or dinner plans!

Top Wedding Registry Picks

Wedding Registry Favorites

After a few months of marriage under my belt I thought it’d be fun to share some of our favorite registry items. I remember feeling totally overwhelmed in the beginning of the process and loved hearing recommendations from friends, family and fellow bloggers. These are just a few of my personal favorites, but my list could go on and on!

I love baking and these nesting bowls are the perfect kitchen companions. The variety of sizes work for everything from popcorn to a salad and we’re always reaching for them.

Toss the pre-made dressing aside and start making your own. Homemade dressing is so much better tasting and healthier for you. I love using this shaker to mix up our own varieties and the easy to control spout ensures you don’t accidentally dump the bottle on your salad (been there… #fail).
Salt and pepper mills are definitely not something we would have purchased for ourselves, but we always are using these electronic ones. The LED light at the end lets you actually see how much you’re putting on your food and is great for using outside when grilling.

One of my favorite dishes to make as soon as the temperate drops is a great chili or soup. This dutch oven will be used weekly come fall and I love the bright color. Brian and I easily use these non-stick half sheet pans nightly if not every other night when cooking. They’re the size pan that we use when roasting veggies or chicken and when we want to make a small batch of cookies. Such great quality and a breeze come clean-up.

Something we were most excited about, like anyone who loves to cook, is a great set of pots and pans. I can’t tell you how much easier cooking is with all-clad products. The entire pan heats evenly, avoiding any ‘hot spots’ and it’s even dishwasher safe. An investment piece, but one that will last us forever. You also can’t beat a great set of plush towels. These are by far the nicest ones that either of us have owned and they’re like wrapping yourself up in the coziest blanket after a shower. So soft and highly recommend!

I’d love to know what some of y’alls favorite registry or home gift items were!

Weekend + Links

summer outfit with hat

With the combination of serious heat bearing down on the southeast and my cute purchases from the Nordstrom sale, I’m officially ready for fall to be here. Since it stays warm here through September, I unfortunatly have a ways to go. The first of our group of girlfriends is pregnant and we’re switching gears from bachelorette parties and weddings to our very first baby shower this weekend! It’s so fun shopping for  precious little babies. Everything is just so cute!

Work to Happy Hour Outfit

work-to-happy-hour-outfit

I love finding outfits that are great for work, but are pieces I could easily work into my weekend wear or for happy hour. This Pomegranate dress comes in a few different colors and I love the longer 3/4 sleeves so I can wear it into fall without needing a jacket. Dresses that can be dressed up or down are the ones that get the most facetime in my wardrobe. I’d easily toss this on with sandals for the weekend or for a wedding/baby shower. When I find jewelry that I like, I wear it non-stop. These earrings are so lightweight that I forget they’re on. I own them in a few colors and they seem to go with everything!

 note: I’ve been searching for a great, natural deodorant for what seems like ages! I tried Soapwalla and it left my underarm skin irritated and itching. The past few weeks I’ve been using the Piperwai deodorant above and I love it. It withstands the hot and humid southern summers and smells so good! I have no problem putting this on right after I shave, which I couldn’t do with Soapwalla. This isn’t a sponsored post, just sharing an item that I truly love!

Ranch Cheddar Chicken Thighs

Ranch Cheddar Chicken Thighs

Ranch and cheddar cheese. Need I say more? Brian and I had these chicken thighs and our favorite sweet potato fries for dinner the other night and it was a hit. While the recipes calls for a little mayo on top, we subbed ours with greek yogurt and it was so good!

Open Back Maxi Dress

printed maxi

Like many of you, a great maxi dress is one of my favorite wardrobe pieces. They’re so comfortable and easy to throw on. I’ve packed this maxi for my honeymoon, a bachelorette trip in Seaside, FL and when we headed to Mexico. It’s one I always reach for. The top portion is so soft and stretches to fit your chest. I plan on pairing this with a jean jacket and booties to carry me into fall.
