31 Weeks – Valentinecast Surprise Baby Shower

Last night, J and I got one of the surprises of our lives. A month or so ago, our awesome friend Kim Price said she wanted to come on our show June 9th to make an announcement. She wouldn’t tell us what what it was but we love having her on the show in general so of course we agreed. We tried guessing but she kept her lips tightly shut! We guessed she’s getting married, moving, having kids, etc. Nothing!

June 9th arrives and by text earlier that day, she tells us she’s nervous. Now we are really stumped. Why would she be nervous? We call her on Skype and shit talk for a little bit before the show (we love that chick.) There are sooooo many people in chat room but I didn’t think anything of it because it’s Kim! Of course there would be a lot of people…

Daaaw Thanks @AsheleeEats for highlighting such a wonderful lunch we had with you! Can’t wait to go again for another adventure!

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.

I’ve driven or walked by Stevens and Stevens dozens of times without noticing this restaurant. I blame the odd restaurant/roommate situation. The deli shares a space with Ditto’s Grill near the busy intersection of Bardstown Road and Grinstead Drive. The Ditto’s whimsical sign eclipses the simple Stevens and Stevens masthead…

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!

Sloppy Joe Recipe

Mmmmm Sloppy Joes

Homemade Sloppy Joes finished

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


  1. In a medium skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef, onion, and green pepper; drain off liquids.
  2. Stir in the garlic powder, mustard, ketchup, and brown sugar; mix thoroughly. Reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
