appetizers: weekly link roundup 8.26

Appetizers8-26Hey, it's Monday!  Here's a sampling of what kept me entertained this week (when I wasn't running around chasing the kids, keeping the house from collapsing on itself or you know, working).   

Charleston, SC

A story about the chef at the helm one of our favorite special-occasion restaurants, Wild Olive

Two Charleston restaurants have been named among the U.S.'s 50 Best; we've eaten at The Ordinary twice and wholeheartedly agree


More fodder for the small plate debate; this argument is literally never-ending among my friends

I need a reason to make a pavlova — or do I?

Weirdly enough, one of the Gravy Baby's favorite foods is broccoli, so this recipe roundup will be perfect for our weeknight meals


The best airport restaurants (what?! No Chili's Too?)  

My parents recently returned from a trip to Australia and New Zealand, one of their first without participating in a package tour; this article must be because of them

Travel deals for the fall; the Louisiana Seafood Festival is calling my name


Tips on how to dine out with kids — or, just follow the Gravy Train philosophy (start 'em young, do it often, and eat ridiculously early)

Hopefully the hubby's dolphin dad approach will counterbalance my hereditary instinct to be a tiger mom
