Paula Deen's Family Kitchen Destin, FL Dining Review

Well, I guess it's official. Sadly my birthday celebrations are over.

 In our family we don't just celebrate the day we were born. We celebrate the whole month ...and boy was it fun! Last month we were lucky enough to travel home to the Florida panhandle to see my parents and enjoy some much needed beach and pool time. And being the foodie that I am, I had to check out the new restaurant in town that everyone is talking about. So for my birthday lunch my family and I dined at the brand spankin' new Paula Deen's Family Kitchen in Destin. It is located in my favorite outdoor mall, Destin Commons and is hands down one of the most inviting and prettiest restaurants in the city! 
This is the third PDFK location I have had the pleasure of dining at, along with The Lady and Sons in Savannah. Each offers different specials and events but they all serve Paula's signature dishes like Southern Fried Chicken, Georgia Fried Catfish, and Ooey Gooey Butter Cake.

Scroll down to see what we ordered and our favorite dishes and tips!

Pioneer Woman Dessert Birthday Party

Last month I celebrated my 36th trip around the sun. Since I was visiting my parents in Florida, I decided to have a simple dessert party at their home. Of course, I had to have a theme b/c I just can't have a plain ol' party! So I decided I would have a party inspired by my favorite fellow blogger and foodie, Ree Drummond aka The Pioneer Woman
Lucky for me I own tons a lot of Pioneer Woman decor, mostly from Walmart, and I was brimming with fun ideas for my upcoming country chic style shindig. 
Even better,  Walmart now carries Pioneer Woman PARTY SUPPLIES! Seriously y'all I just about lost my mind when I first saw this display and had to reign myself in! But I did have to buy all the Charlie dog decorations, like balloons and candles, b/c it always reminds me of my sweet beagle boy Charlie.
Creme Brulee, Key Lime Pie, Tiramisu, oh my!
I had to add custom Pioneer Woman cookies too.
Scroll down for the menu and details, including a few adorable handmade items from 
Etsy shops I love.

Chocolate Lovers Mississippi Mud Pie #SummerDessertWeek

This post and recipe was created for #SummerDessertWeek! I was sent samples by some of the sponsor companies but as always opinions are 100% mine.
Mississippi Mud Pie is a Southern favorite that I have enjoyed many, many times over the years. Honestly, each time I order it in a restaurant it is different. It is a rich fudge chocolate pie but sometimes it also has marshmallows or nuts added. Some people add a layer of whipped cream on top. Some make a pudding layer in the middle. I like my pie simple- CHOCOLATE.
Extra chocolate - in the crust, in the filling, and in the ganache on top. Serve it with a side of vanilla ice cream and you have a Chocolate Lovers dream dessert!
Why is it called Mississippi Mud Pie?
As Dolly Parton explained this dessert gets it name from the way the Mississippi River mud looks on the hot, dry summer days. That mud may not be appealing but this gooey, rich pie sure is!

Uncle Mike's Lump Crab Cakes with Remoulade

Uncle Mike's Lump Crab Cakes with Remoulade is a famous family recipe that everyone loves during our holiday meals. My Uncle makes the best crab cakes around and today I am sharing how to make them!
My Uncle Mike and I both love cooking and he is one of my biggest inspirations.
Today I am sharing a recipe of his that I love because it always reminds me of my home state, Florida. 
Uncle Mike's Lump Crab Cakes with Remoulade is one of those meals you talk about months later because it is that good. I was lucky enough to get my Uncle to share his recipe with me and even though they may not have been as pretty good as his when I made them, they are pretty darn close! 
Give them a try and let me know what you think! 
Mike is self taught like me and him and we love cooking together during our holiday gatherings.
 My Uncle and my Aunt Candie are both big Tampa Bay Buccaneer fans.
So, of course, I had to get him a Bucs Chef hat!
I am blessed to have such a wonderful family and my awesome
 Uncle even officiated our wedding 7 years ago!
Scroll down for two of Mike's best recipes: Crab Cakes and Remoulade dipping sauce.
