Flower Child

We are so excited to have Lifestyle Blogger EdnaJames helping us explore the North Valley foodie scene. Here she is in the north Phoenix area at Flower Child on North East corner of Camelback & Central.

Yesterday I dined at Flower Child, Uptown and it was so yummy. For starters the restaurant is absolutely adorable. It has a wrap around patio filled with flower boxes and succulents. When the weather cools down it would be a perfect spot for an afternoon lunch. The inside is just as lovely with bright pops of green & blue, exposed duct work above, and the coolest mosaic tiles. 

For Lunch we started with the Avocado Hummus and I have to say it was a stand out! It was incredibly light and creamy for a hummus, small bites of sweet corn and pumpkin seeds were the perfect touch. The pita bread that came with it was SO soft and fluffy, best pita bread I have had. 

The next stand out was the Flying Avocado Wrap. It is a Whole Grain Wrap and its the yummy pita bread again, insert happy dance! It is packed with the most moist shredded chicken (the grill and shave their own chicken 3x per day, so it tastes so fresh), smoked gouda, romaine, tomato and the avocado hummus. This wrap had everything, moist and full of flavor. 

The final standout may not be for everyone but the sweet corn & quinoa with greek yogurt is something not to be missed! i had never had anything  like it before so it was surprising and delicious at the same time. A perfect blend between creamy and tangy! 

Oh and i may be weird but the restroom should definitely be a stop, the cuteness is too much;).

Hilton Sedona at Bell Rock

I can't believe it took us so long to travel to the beautiful town of Sedona, which is only 90 min from the valley! If you haven't made it up to the Red Rock Valley then you are missing out big time.  As soon as we neared Sedona, we were all  "OOOH's" and "AAAH's". The Hilton Sedona at Bell Rock is right there with gorgeous views all over. Not only were we surrounded with beauty,  but the Hilton was just a beautiful inside. 
Looking out from the balcony in our room was a breathtaking site. 
With a view like that who wouldn't order room service. Speaking of room service our breakfast in bed was too good for words. 
These red velvet pancakes with blueberry compote were soft and pillowy with a cream cheese icing in between each layer so you got a perfect bite every time! I am already missing them. 

Chef Chris Knightly sure knows what he is doing, the menu is full of flavor and looks, taking his food to a luxury level. They also cater perfectly to our Non-alcoholic needs with a great selection of Mocktails, because everyone deserves a gorgeous drink. 

But the food doesn't stop there 
This Chorizo Fondido Dip with manchego & cream cheese was definitely one of the the tables favorites. A very "manly" dish that the guys just couldn't get enough of. 

Roasted chicken with a savory bread pudding

Mac and Cheese that even had me ( a non mac and cheese fan) gobbling it up. 

This salmon with beets, parsnip puree' and swiss chard was most definitely my favorite. I will be requesting those puree'd parsnips on every dish from now on! 

Of course we didn't let a little warm weather stop us from enjoying a s'more by the fire. 

Just before checking out we were able to enjoy this delicious breakfast buffet. Steel cut oats with all the fixings, banana bread french toast, country potatoes, yogurt and fruit. Plus one of the best chocolate croissants I have ever had! 
So Yes we were definitely huge Fans of all the food the Hilton Sedona had to offer. So much so that we never never needed to go find food anywhere else. But if you are looking to Sedona has some amazing restaurants and some with amazing views.
The Hudson; Javelina Cantina; Dahl & Diluca, Famous Pizza, The Local Juicery; Elote Cafe

I know it may look like all we did was eat, and that is kind of true, but the Hilton has so much more to offer. While the boys were off golfing at a four star rated golf course ( steps away from our room) , we were busy enjoying our massage at the spa. I loved how they make you feel so special, right after we were finished we were greeted with tea and water.  

Staying at the Hilton is only half the wonderment that is vacationing in Sedona. There is so much that  Sedona has to offer and if you aren't sure what to do, don't worry they have a concierge specifically designed to help you plan your day. 

Our first day we enjoyed Slide Rock a natural waterslide in the canyon of the red rocks. I had truly never heard of this and couldn't believe how awesome it was. Though it was quite freezing it was absolutely worth it, and I can't wait to bring my kids back. 
Then it was sunset at Cathedral Rock made even more dramatic by the lighting storm. We stayed there taking selfies and pictures for a good 25 min before the guys hauled us in the car. 

The next day we were able to enjoy a Pink Jeep Tour from the famous Pink Jeeps themselves. Our guide Mike was awesome and had so much to share with us, with some off roading and lots of stops for a great picture. 

I don't want to tell you how to spend your vacation or where to stay, but if I were too, I would say copy everything we did and you are sure to have an amazing time!

Pasta Salad

Stephanie's Pasta Salad

About 7 or 8 years ago I was introduced to this salad. Now I don't want to over sell it or anything but I would say Perfection best describes it! If you know Stephanie Meadows you already know that she is a great cook so it is no wonder that this salad rocks. Every time I make it everyone raves. And if I hear that she is making it, well you can bet I am there.  Also make sure you make enough to have some for leftovers. Because this bad boy is going to get eaten.
