BLOCK RESTAURANT // Provo, Utah

Sunday, December 10, 2017

Provo's new farm to table restaurant, Block, is exactly what Provo has been desperately needing. A higher end restaurant that makes you feel like you're not really in Provo anymore. Block uses locally sourced ingredients from local farmers and artisans to make this unique dining experience a must try!


The design of the restaurant is beautiful and we loved the ambiance it provides! 



CHARCUTERIE BOARD
A rotating selection of cured meats and cheeses, housemade mustard, housemade seasonal jam, Slideridge honeycomb and a pickled accompaniment. Also pretty much my dream come true! 


HONEY GARLIC CHICKEN BREAST
Barley pilaf, sauteed rainbow carrots, Slideridge honey and toasted walnuts


CLIFFORD'S FARM PORK LOIN
Yam puree, Apple chutney, Snuck farm's kale


POPCORN PANA COTTA
With caramel popcorn and caramel sauce on top!


S'MORES BOARD
Toasted house-made marshmallows, local dark chocolate, graham crackers, rotating accompaniments  


CHAI TEA CREME BRULEE
Served with soft gingersnap cookies


This is their chef, Adam Cold. Honestly, such an incredible chef that has brought something truly special to Provo. I'd recommend getting a reservation now before there are week-long waiting lists!

Thanks for having us in, Block Restaurant.

BAKED // Logan Cookie Delivery

Monday, November 27, 2017

Last week we finally tried BAKED in Logan! Baked is a cookie delivery service that not only sells delicious cookies but donates 10% of their proceeds to a different charity each season. Fall 2017's charity is RODS which is a foundation for orphans with Down Syndrome. You can learn more about their charity efforts HERE.  


One of the best things I ate while in Baked was this chocolate chip cookie sandwich with Aggie Blue Mint ice cream in the middle! I've always loved Aggie ice cream so having it in the middle of two warm cookies was pretty much a dream come true. 



If you're in Logan, be sure to stop by and enjoy your cookies inside their store! They have nice lounge areas where you can stay and eat, even until 2am! They also recently opened in REXBURG so if you have any BYU Idaho friends be sure to tell them to try it out. 


You can order their regular chocolate chip cookies or their salted caramel. I honestly loved both. If you are a caramel lover you HAVE to try the caramel!



Thanks so much for having us in, Baked! We will be back every time we are in Logan that's for sure!

Wallaby's Smokehouse // South Jordan

Sunday, November 19, 2017

On Saturday we went out to WALLABY'S SMOKEHOUSE in South Jordan! It is right in The District and just had its grand opening. 


I loved these Australian sparkling drinks. My favorite was the Blood Orange and Peach.


Bob's Beef Brisket Salad


Surf & Turf w/ Smashed Potatoes


Melbourne Burger with fries


Pepperjack Cheese Mac n' Cheese


Giant Cinnamon Roll


The burger and fries were our favorite. Wallaby's is a super family friendly place. Be sure to try it next time you're in the area!

Core Life Eatery // Warm Bowls

Tuesday, October 10, 2017

Last week we went back into CoreLife Eatery to try some of the warmer items off of their menu! They are located in American Fork right off State Street (197 NW State Street American Fork, UT 84003) and we loved our experience last time we went in. See that post HERE



Something we love about CoreLife is the fact that EVERYTHING in the restaurant (besides the sample bread) is Gluten Free! So, if you have a friend with a gluten intolerance you can come to CoreLife and order something everyone will love. 




Their juices/fresh lemonades might be my favorite part of the restaurant. Be sure to sample them to see which one is your favorite! It's a tough decision.  


Broth Bowls



Be sure to try CoreLife next time you're in American Fork! It's a wonderful healthy restaurant that will leave you feeling better than when you came.

Midici Pizza // Orem

Tuesday, October 3, 2017

Several weeks ago one of our followers commented on our Instagram and told us that we MUST go try Midici in Orem since it was "the closest Italian pizza he's had since living in Italy". We were intrigued! So we went to give it a try today and we absolutely LOVED it. Not only do they have incredible pizza, but they have delicious salads and Italian soda that all will love. 



They also have a super fun polaroid wall! Whoever is there next time, try to spot our pic.





The two Italian sodas that we tried were Coconut Cream and Strawberry Peach. Don't be surprised if I'm back to order another one of those tomorrow 😉




Overall, a wonderful experience that we absolutely loved. Be sure to try it out next time in you're in the Provo/Orem area. Midici is attached to the University Mall on the southwest side (by Macy's). Follow them on Instagram HERE

Thank you so much for having us in, Midici! We will for sure be back.

CoreLife Eatery // American Fork

Friday, August 25, 2017


Yesterday we went to try the new CoreLife Eatery in American Fork! CoreLife opened up in Utah a couple months and serves a variety of HEALTHY, delicious dishes that are sure to please any crowd. They have various locations across the United States but this location is their first on the west coast. The manager told us that every menu item at CoreLife is gluten free (the only gluten they have in the entire restaurant is the complimentary slices of bread they hand out!). 



My favorite dish was this Plate with Chicken. It came with quinoa, sweet potatoes and Brussel sprouts and I'm already craving it again! It was the perfect meal that tastes good, fills you up and leaves you feeling good about what you just ate.

Be sure to pair whatever you get here with their LEMONADES! My favorite drink was the Coconut Water Fruit Punch. It tasted just like a pina colada and I would go back just to order that! We love finding good healthy choices around Utah.
