Gullah Luv

Thursday, September 6, 2012 3:00 AM by VisitMyrtleBeach SC

Gullah Luv ’n Uddah T’ings Pawley’s Island Hammock Shops In December, I visited the Ultimate Gullah shop in Conway and left with what would turn out to be the most amazing souvenir I’ve ever purchased. In addition to a fabulous Gullah cookbook, I also snagged a container of Gullah Luv seasoning . I quickly began a series of culinary experiments with sensational results. When I returned to Myrtle Beach in August, my schedule did not allow for a drive to Conway and I was disheartened that I wouldn’t be able to replenish my stash of seasoning (that…

Deviled Crab? Yes, Please! The River Room M.G. Being that it’s my favorite type of seafood, I thought I’d tried crab prepared in every conceivable manner.

From Farm to Table

Lee’s Farmers Market M.G. Not in the mood to eat out every day of your vacation, but still want to enjoy fresh local produce and sea food? That’s the mindset I was in, driving down Route 17 in the hope of finding a farmer’s market offering farm fresh eggs and perhaps a few peaches. As if right on cue, I spotted the sign for Lee’s Farmer’s Market and quickly made a U-turn to take a peek inside. Walking through the front door, I knew immediately I’d hit the jackpot. The market was full, wall-to-wall, of fresh produce, meats and seafood, as well…
