Cooking is fun…

Especially when you have the right equipment. One of the best shops in Savannah is, hands down, Kitchens on the Square. They specialize in fun and quirky kitchen supplies.  Ice cubes in the shapes of brains, guns, and magic wands, bunny shaped creamers and frog prince salt and pepper shakers are just a few of the treasures to be found in this place. The first time we stumbled upon this place, we were on a weekend trip with Andy’s family and we must have spent at least an hour and a half in this store.  There was something for everyone, we even picked up a grill fork that look like a saber and came with a complementary Zorro mask for our friend Kevin.

It was really difficult, but I limited my purchases to a milk whisk, for those chai lattes I am addicted to lately, and the hand towel Andy is holding in the picture above.  As any of you with pets knows, no matter how hard you try or how much you clean your kitchen it’s bound to happen.

Kitchen on the Square also offers cooking classes, I am thinking about signing up for one on my next trip.


One of the reasons Andy and I picked Savannah for our honeymoon was because we’ve both been there a couple of times.  That way we could fill our week with relaxing and meandering and not feel like we had to plan out our days for maximum tourist exposure.  What’s the point of a vacation if you need another vacation to recover from it?

One of the places we stumbled across on a previous trip was the Cupcake Emporium.  The name alone had me hooked, but these delicious little morsels are so much more than just pretty. There is a little something for everyone, chocolate, strawberry and vanilla for the traditionalist; and flavors like French Toast, Almond Joy and Pistachio for the slightly more adventurous cupcake lover.

Andy and I decided to be a little adventurous and he went with the Almond Joy and I had the Pistachio. After a quick honeymoon cupcake toast, and blissful first bites we decided to do half and half and switch cupcakes.  And yes, I do realize how lucky I am to have a man that doesn’t mind sharing.  Although, it does help that he appreciates good food as much as I do, and this way we each got to try two cupcake flavors.

If you’re ever in Savannah, and trust me, you should be…at least once, do yourself a favor and stop by.  Maybe park a few blocks away so you can work off some of the calories, but it’s so worth it.
