Ahh…Pancakes, Pancakes, Pancakes!

Pancakes are “what's for breakfast” in our house on Sunday mornings. It is one of the family traditions I started for us, mostly out of my love of pancakes but also because we had the same tradition in my house when I was growing up. This…

Ahhhh….Sweet Tea

Pigeon Forge holds many special memories for me and it even helps to drum up a few from my childhood. From Bennett's Pit Bar-B-Que to Old Mill Restaurant, and McAlister's Deli any time I take a sip off a tall, cool glass of sweet tea I am…

Mellow Mushroom

Pizza Like No Other! Our first trip to Mellow Mushroom was on our getaway trip to Pigeon Forge without the little divas. We loved the food and loved the 80's music playing in the background. The atmosphere is fun and hip, kind of story book…

Alamo Steakhouse

A Piece of Texas in Tennessee?!! Dad, being the man he is and not having roots in the South, doesn’t always enjoy Southern cuisine quite as much as mom and Jellybean. He needs his steak and potatoes sometimes. So, mom and the little divas…

Old Mill Restaurant

Southern Cooking at its Best! In the heart of the Old Mill Square in Pigeon Forge, nestled alongside a running water-powered grist mill is the well known Old Mill Restaurant. Since Mom likes to pass on her Southern roots to the little divas…
