This #breadpudding… you need it in your life. We stopped by the new #Plano location of @duggburger today and tried out their family recipe. My only “compliant” is that I was too full to eat 4 of these because of the awesome burger. They have this at their #Dallas location as well. *mediacomp @visitplano #dallasfood #dallaseats
Did you guys hear, this year’s finalists in the Big Tex Choice Awards have been announced! Make sure you’re following @statefairoftx & #sharetheSFT for all of the updates! We are curious about this particular item –Fried Jell-O® by Ruth Hauntz “For the first time in Big Tex Choice Awards history, America’s favorite childhood dessert is given a State Fair of Texas twist! A classic cherry-flavored Jell-O in a panko-crusted breading, flash-fried to perfection, and then dusted with powdered sugar. Prepared with a tasty topping of whipped cream and a cherry garnish, this dish has the perfect amount of crunch to compliment the jiggle.” #dallasfoodnerd #friedfoods #instadfw #dallasfood
We hate to break it to you, but our pal #dallasfoodnerd @foodwithmonica is better at the #🍩 game than you. She made this Donut Milkshake from #funkytowndonuts ・・・ Anyone else wakes up early in the morning to go wait in the parking lot for a doughnut shop to be open? 👋✋ *ME ME ME* I heard so many great things about this place so I had to go experience it myself. Their donuts sells out fast, so I made sure I had my hands on these donuts before anyone else did. 👊😏 While my best friend is at home on their instagram page patiently waiting for them to post the flavors of the day. So she can text me which flavors she wants. Hahaha Let me just say that I was not disappointed. Each flavors was delicious. It wasn’t too sweet. It was just perfect from the textures to the designs and the icing was everything. 😋 Warning: Some icing from the donuts is missing due to me driving so fast that my box of donuts hit the floor and abused some of the doughnuts. 😭 ( Let’s just say I did my best in constructing this crazy milkshake. )
Resharing @biggirlhungry’s serious Mother’s Day #🍩 action ・・・ shout out to @earnestdonuts for making these 💣 Mother’s Day donuts!!!!

There was some amazing eats served at the @tasteofthenfl Dallas event at @attstadium tonight, but the real touchdown was this red velvet cake (foot)ball perfectly displayed on the 35 yard line:) from the @northtexasfoodbank community kitchen. #tnfldallas #dallascowboys #arlingtontx #dallas #dfweats #dfn #instafood #football #nfl #touchdown #mamachallenge #mediacomp
Tonight a couple of food nerds ventured over to @lazydogrestaurants to try their Butter Cake. This cake was all the buzz this week as several of our team got to experience #TasteAddison menu items early. Here’s what @visitaddison shared about this drool worthy cake. ・・・ And the winner is…. Yesterday we celebrated with our annual kick off for #TasteAddison, a fun competition between a few of our restaurants called “Taste: The Competition.” Some of our best restaurants shared the perfect bite of goodness for some of Dallas’ best foodie influencers giving their nod to their favorites. Check out who won and get your taste buds ready for Taste Addison 2016 on Facebook! #tasteaddison #buttercake #addisontx #addison #addisonfun #dfwevents #dallasevents #traveltexas #foodporn

Everyone was trying to figure out if they should lick THE PLATE!! LOL and there you have it folks!! 4 courses, 4 chefs, one night!

When we started Dallas Food Nerd 5 years ago we knew we wanted it to be a community blog because food is so personal and everyone is so different in what they find themselves ordering or making at home. This item from DFN contributor @tbanda is a perfect example. How many of you can say you’ve spent the time to make such an impressive dish from what was just a basic apple? 🍎 #DallasFoodNerd ・・・ Baked honey apples and walnuts with pistachio ice cream. #apples #applesallday #dessert
Update: we just #10k so I figured why not bring it back full circle to the place that started #DallasFoodNerd for us. If you don’t know the story, Rory and Elysa (me) started DFN after a blogger event on Valentine’s 2011. Stop 1 of 5 was at @risesouffle, hence the Strawberry #souffle. Inquiring minds want to know, what DFW restaurants would you like us to partner with or feature soon? Spoiler alert: that may include some gift-card giveaways for you guys!
Indeed, this pie lives up to its name – Lord of the Pies! I finally made it over to @emporiumpies, and it is worth the hype! Quick tip – seems like the line was little shorter between 8 and 830 pm before the dinner crowd gets out. Either way, it’s worth the wait! -@vickyd04 #instatakeover #bishoparts #dessert
Hey ho party people! @vickyd04 here taking over DFN IG for the next 48 hours!! 😬 I’m still a little hyped up after this morning’s caffeine at @magnoliasdallas! @barista_dee worked his magic with the art right?! ☕️ P.S. – Have you been over to the @harwooddistrict yet? This just might be one of my new favorite areas of #Dallas! From the gorgeous @mariegabrielle_ to @mercatbistro to an old favorite @saintanndallas – there are several spots to grab a latte, have a chic lunch, romantic dinner or just a brunch with friends! And it’s all just a hop, skip and an Uber ride from Uptown/Downtown! Go try it out and tell us what you think!
The best part of waking up… Is @eilandcoffeeroasters coffee in your cup! @tbanda here for a 48-hour #DFN contributor takeover! I’ve got a crazy couple days ahead of me, and excited to share the food adventures I have during those days with y’all! Also, the Dallas Food Nerd team is super excited to have nearly 10k followers! If you love what we do, tag friends to follow us! #eislandcoffee #local #coffee #kenyan #richardson #instatakeover #tagafriend
Did you know @nespressousa has new Limited Edition Holiday Grand Crus? Rory is having Swiss Chocolate this morning. There are also Vanilla Amaretti, Ciocco Ginger, & Vanilla Cardamom in the limited editions. We generally get our #Nespresso pods at @northparkcenter or order them online (most frequent). #vertuoline (thanks to our friends at Nespresso for sending us samples) 🏡: Casa de #dallasfoodnerd founders – Elysa & Rory
Most creative Thanksgiving item this year I’d have to say goes to @catherinekaram aka @dallasbakes for her cookies that look like mini-pies. #Repost @catherinekaram ・・・ Happy Thanksgiving! Mini gluten-free cookie pies, with a twist. The pumpkin one has a bit of cinnamon and cloves sprinkled on top, the fruit pie has strawberry jam and the chocolate one is made with chocolate icing and a sprinkle of cocoa powder. Inspired by @alibeesbakeshop. #thanksgiving #cookies #sugarcookies #decoratedcookies #customcookies #glutenfree
Fun fact, in addition to being the co-founder of Dallas Food Nerd I also have another online brand/blog @genpink. And did you know you can use emojis in hashtags? For example you can see my love of tea (and some coffee) under the tag #genpink☕️. If you are tea obsessed like I am, I recommend you try any number of the @goodearthtea brand teas. Starry Chai and Match are my favorites but this Cocoa Tango is a close 3rd. – Elysa
Not gonna lie, am super excited about these tiny cupcakes from @sweetbyholly. It’s a good almost end to my JAX vacation. Also, fun perk they have $1 #minicupcakes on Mondays. #minimondaymania #sweetbyholly #jacksonvilleFL Flavors: Cookie Dough, Peanut Butter, Cookies & Cream, Red Velvet, Strawberry, Banana Split, Chocolate Mousse, Key Lime, & Black Out
DFN contributor Vicky D has been at @statefairoftx today for the 11th Annual Big Tex Choice Awards. Check out the @statefairoftx account for more food photos. I’m excited about Fried Lobster with Champagne Gravy. #Repost @vickyd04 ・・・ And the winner of the @statefairoftx Big Tex Choice Awards is…..FERNIE’S HOLY MOLY CARROT CAKE! 🎉The judges said they weren’t really a fan of carrots, but when you add butter, brown sugar and two dipping sauces, you can’t go wrong! And I have to agree, not too sweet snd the slightest crunch from the coating! #dallasfoodnerd *mediacomp
Did you know several DFN contributors write for multiple blogs? One of our contributors, @autumnreo, has a fun #breakfast recipe on MamaChallenge.com this week. ・・・ Finally…it’s up on the blog! Glad I got a photo since they’re all gone! My twist on a Dallas favorite: Texas Popovers with Strawberry Jalapeño Butter! #lonestareggs partnership #ontheblog 🍓

If you’re a fan of La Original Michoacana Ice Cream in #bishopartsdistrict you should read this update from DFN contributor @vickyd04. ・・・ 🍦Coolin Off 🍦 The rumors are true – They are indeed closing on July 31st because the rent is jumping from $1,900 to $6K!! 😳 You know I love to see cities grow and develop, but it’s unfortunate when community staples have fall victim to progress. My foodie spirit is sad. 😞 #bishoparts #foodnews #instadfw #foodblogger #dallasite #dallasfoodnerd
