Hometown Hidden Treasures

I love the hole in wall finds.  The small town treasures that’s off the beaten path.  That’s probably why one of my favorite shows is Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.  If you haven’t guest by now, I am a total foodie! Pretty much all the Robertsons are.  Jep and I have wanted to go on a food tour for a long time.  Maybe next summer we can embark on that dream vacation.  Travel around the US and eat at all the most amazing hidden treasures… talk about a yummy vaca! I’m-In!!

“Not Just Pie” is definitely a hometown hidden treasure.  From their very merry atmosphere, to their quaint 8 little tables, you will fall in love with this charming cafe.  It is one of my regulars.  Oh, and did I mention the food? Delicious… to say the least.  If you’re ever in town, you should totally try it out!

Not Just Pie


  • All Homemade
  • Freshly Made Everyday
  • Local


A good chicken pot pie is hard the come by.

But this one’s a dream!


Yes I’m southern, and yes I love me some tea!

I take mine half sweet, half unsweet!


I’ve had this cake stand for a long time, way back when we had southern living parties.  And these are possibly my favorite dessert plates of all time, found these cuties at Pottery Barn.


I think this picture says a thousand words!!!!

My mouth is watering for a slice right now, seriously.

And I’ve literally gotten my kids, the Robertson

women, and all company that comes to visit, hooked on this pie.

You’re welcome friends and fam!

   My favs (what we got for the planning party)

  •  Broccoli Cheese Soup
  • Chicken Pot Pie
  • Side Salads
  • Blueberry Cream Pie
  • Tea


“Party Planning Committee”


• There’s always good times when these two and I get together! I’m so blessed with some amazing friends.  And let me just tell you, they’re amazing party planners too.  I couldn’t do a party without them.  Before we dive into the planning and decorating… we feast like queens! 😉

    Hey Jessica! Thanks for posting. My son just started at LA Tech this fall and we’re from GA. Love the “off the beaten path” suggestions. 🙂 Can’t wait to try next time we’re in Ruston.

    Tried it out today at your recommendation. It was good. I had blueberry cheesecake and my friend had banana Carmel! Tea was good as well!! We told them your blog sent us there. We working pipeline here for the next year, would love some more recommendations on things to do, places to shop, hair salons, those kind of things. I have found West Monroe, very accommodating! Do you all attend the same church?

    About Me

    About Me
    Hello! My name is Jessica Robertson and I’m married to the youngest Robertson, Jules Jeptha, and yes I love the BEARD!

    I am so glad you could join me on this endeavor of life without the cameras. I hope this lifestyle blog will encourage you, inspire you, and down right draw us closer together.

    Life is short, so let’s encourage and lift each other up. I’m passionate about life and believe The Cure is LOVE! Doesn’t matter where you come from or how old you are, we are all in this together and we can learn from one another.

    I know that without my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I’d be lost. And I live with the peace that Christ died for my sins and rose from the grave and now isn in Heaven preparing a place for me, that’s what my hope is in, that one day I will live for ETERNITY in HEAVEN with my GOD.

    I’m a blessed mama of four. I’m a lover of all things vintage. I’m an oldie at heart. I may have been born in the wrong century. I cry when anyone else cries, which my kids make fun of. I want to be a farmer when I grow up. And last but not least, I LOVE my mate!

    Hope you can join me on this journey of life, cooking, gardening/living off the land, fashion/beauty, sewing/creating, Holiday’s, and more.

    Lets learn together!
