I’ve changed the name (& direction) a few times. I’ve even tried to completely abandon. But despite my best efforts, I cannot jump ship. I have a new direction, a new vision and a renewed excitement to blog again.
To try and recap the past two years since my last post would be hilarious and ridiculously long-winded, so here’s a VERY short, but sweet little update attempt:
Baby Amelia is now Lady Amelia at the ripe old age of 2.5+
We sold a house in SC & bought a house in the QC
I went from a full-time to a part-time-work-from-home situation
I still have MUCH LOVE for cooking, eating, community & traveling
Thus…the new name:
The Freckled Fork
in life + in the kitchen
Cheers to writing about the things I love…food, family, friends, traveling & more.
There’s always an open seat at the table. Join me ❤
In the meantime…
Poke has officially arrived in Charlotte! This deliciously fresh Hawaiian dish, pronounced “POH-keh” (not “poke”), is exactly what I’ve been craving lately. Raw seasoned fish, crisp vegetables, layered over sushi rice in a perfectly proportioned bowl.
I started my poke adventures at Hi-Tide Poke & Raw Bar in Dilworth. I ordered the rainbow bowl and it was amazing. Tuna, salmon, white fish…it was great. They come in two sizes, small and large, and despite the haters saying the small wasn’t enough food, I thought for a lunch portion, it was perfect.
Next stop…Umami in Pineville and Seoul Bowl on South Boulevard.
