Ticket Lottery to the upcoming Antique Roadshow in Atlanta

Ticket Lottery to the upcoming Antique Roadshow in Atlanta

Inman Park --  As you may know by now, the Antique Roadshow is rolling into town next month to let us all know if that old family heirloom that our parents have been holding onto forever is actually worth a large chunk of money or not.  As you can imagine the Atlanta stop is highly anticipated and tickets are scarce.  So our neighborhood Councilman Kwanza Hall is raffling off of few tickets for the community.

Summer in Georgia & peaches for weeks: What to do with those sweet GA peaches

Summer in Georgia & peaches for weeks: What to do with those sweet GA peaches

Atlanta, GA --  The blog Running With Tweezers has a great article including a variety of great recipes for this year's peaches.  If you have had one of this year's peaches you know they are just delicious!!!  Whether you want to make ice cream, a cake or a cobbler, @RunningWithTweezers.com has the perfect recipe for you.

Around here, we’re really fortunate to have summers full of local peaches. Growing up, they were one of my dad’s favorite foods and they made appearances at our house fairly regularly. Sliced on pound cake or angel food cake, on top of cottage cheese the old school way. In the colder months, he’d even eat canned peaches straight up with a spoon. While I’m not a proponent of the tinned variety, I’m a huge fan of the fresh ones grown here in the South.
