Sometimes, I get by with a little help from my friends. These are friends who love food as much as I do and introduce me to their favorite places to eat in the city.
I have Jay and Renee Valentine, fellow bloggers/podcasters and past guests on Deliciously Louisville, to thank for introducing me to Stevens and Stevens Deli, a hidden gem of a lunch spot on Bardstown Road. The Valentines raved about this restaurants wide selection of sandwiches, tasty toppings and good prices and invited me to join them for an early weekday lunch. They had me at sandwiches.
This past weekend we had the opportunity to do a photo shoot with Lance Nelson Porter! We took some props with us with us being the gamers that we are we took some dice, some controllers and a mouse. It was a blast helping him out as he’s doing a 365 day project. We are so proud how they turned out! Please check them out here!

Outro Music: Pretty Lights – If I Gave You My Love
I tend not to buy games the day they are released because I’m so behind on playing them. But I might have to make an exception for this one.
It looks like a movie! Can’t wait!
So as we spoke about on our second episode of our podcast. J made sloppy joes and they were so delicious! They were very simple to make and just a little time. I doubled the recipe so that we would have leftovers. Also with the meat I put in half ground turkey and half ground beef to make it some what a little more healthy. If you give it a try let us know we’ll like to know how it turns out for you!
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1/4 cup chopped onion
- 1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard
- 3/4 cup ketchup
- 3 teaspoons brown sugar
- salt to taste
- ground black pepper to taste
- In a medium skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef, onion, and green pepper; drain off liquids.
- Stir in the garlic powder, mustard, ketchup, and brown sugar; mix thoroughly. Reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Outro Music Talib Kweli “So Low”
Welcome to our blog. We have a lot of things coming soon. Hold on to your shorts and it’s going to be a wild ride!
Griping about how there was baby corn in my pasta dish.
J: Oh, did baby corn pwn you again?
Me: I just ate around it. It didn’t pwn me! Stupid noob corn.
J: That’s basically what it is:
So the Valentines put up their first tree. It’s artificial when I’m used to getting real but artificial is less hassle and it’s just as pretty. I am adoring being married and it’s all I could ever hope for.
Hope everybody had a great holiday.
Typing to each other on IM:
Him (talking about Twitter): @ Me Baby One More Time like the Backstreet Boys!
Me: Ok, but just so you know Hit Me Baby One More Time was Britney Spears, not the Backstreet Boys.
Him: Oh really? But didn’t Backstreet Boys = Britney Spears x 5?
Him: I’m just saying!
