Hi everyone – Becki here! When I was young I used to visit my Aunt, Uncle and cousins in Alabama and was completely smitten with the South. I loved my cousin’s southern drawl, all of the brick homes and of course the warm weather.
Fast forward about twenty some years (who’s counting?) and my little growing family decided to relocate our family from Upstate New York to Raleigh, North Carolina. We weren’t exactly sure where we wanted to settle but pretty quickly we knew Apex was the place we wanted to call home. It was a small town very much like the northern town I grew up in. The downtown was quaint with old brick buildings and storefronts adorned with awnings and big glass windows. I just loved this little town but I also loved the fact that one of the biggest technology hubs in the US was located about 15 minutes away. It was meant to be:-).
We have lived down south for 8 years now and one of the things that I have learned that I really love is southern food. Between biscuits, collard greens and barbecue, southern food just speaks to me and although I didn’t grow up here it gives me all of the same comfort of the food I grew up eating. Apex has no shortage of great places to eat and drink. I thought it would be fun to take you to a few of my favorite places in Apex for food and drink and share one of my favorite classic southern recipe – Pimento Cheese – yum!
