The Keys to Life

Happy Friday everyone! Last weekend I took a little adventure down to Key West and was delighted by a few dining spots: Hungry Tarpon, and NineOneFive were two of them. Only snapped a few photos so bare with me! There are so many places to eat down there, its ridiculous. Nine times out of ten…

Bun-less Burger Beauty

Ahh, the deliciousness of a well cooked, juicy, tasteful burger. Well ladies and gents, this one, was a home cooked meal.
