Dinner at Magdalena Baltimore in the Ivy Hotel

So let’s talk about this amazing dinner I had at the restaurant Magdalena inside of Baltimore’s super chic “The Ivy Hotel.”  The  Magdalena boasts itself as a fine-dining bistro and a culinary jewel of Baltimore.  I COULDN’T AGREE MORE!

The menu is built upon the finest local ingredients, and changes with the seasons and the inspiration of the chef.  The chef, Mark Levy, is doing a little more than cooking in that kitchen, he is putting love and skill in these dishes.

My guest and I were amazed at how beautifully plated each dish was as well as the combination of flavors.

Favorite Appetizer: Raw & Shellfish Platter & Salad of Belgian Endive & Braeburn Apple

Favorite Entree: Roasted Magret Duck Breast, Corn Blinis, Grilled Peach, Chanterelles & Duck Sausage Gravy

Favorite Desert:  Meyer Lemon & Huckleberry Sundae, Olive Oil Cake & Coconut Cream

A Royal Travel Affair Morocco

I had theee most incredible time in Morocco.  I have so many photos to share capturing my journey.  Every year a group of my friends take a big trip, usually in June, to an exotic locale all planned by Ladell Carter of Royal Expression Travel!  She is amazing you guys!  Every details was carefully thought out by Ladell and we all had tons of great memories.

These photos included a trip to the Medina and the Atlast Mountains.  The Medina was an open market, and I think my next post will be dedicated to all the color and doors I was able to capture walking the marketplace.  Remember, that scene in Sex and the City Movie when Carrie purchased those shoes for really cheap when they visited Abu Dhabi—- well this place is sort of like that!

The Atlast Mountains is also known as Morocco’s hidden travel gem. The Atlas Mountains have long been home to some of North Africa’s most remote villages.  The local Berber that populate the villages are the original occupant of Morocco.  It was great having tea with them and the opportunity to admire the view from the mountains.

What places have you visited or haven’t had a chance yet?!  Let me know in the comments below!
