Ginger Ice Cream

Ginger Ice Cream

Sorry guys, I blinked and all of a sudden Memorial Day was this week and I’m still eating things like short ribs and grits and heavy soups and stews.  So, not the most summer of foods. However, I got myself a little garden thanks to […]

Sunday Somethings

Sunday Somethings

Hello, Sunday. Cool pic, huh? Last night I worked a fundraiser for work and it was in the Delta hanger in the Detroit airport!  Anyway, a very cool space. This week I used the decent weather to get my bike legs flexed as zipped around […]

Dutch Mustard Soup, Mosterdsoep

Dutch Mustard Soup, Mosterdsoep

Mustard. Let’s talk about it. I think it’s safe to say that it’s one of the most beloved condiments out there and while buying fun and fancy jams is my passion, tracking down fun and unusual mustards is my hobby. I love mustard. Dijon. Honey, […]

Apple Bacon Dutch Pancake, or Pannenkoeken

Apple Bacon Dutch Pancake, or Pannenkoeken

The best thing about traveling is the food I bring back with me (not in the literal sense because…customs).  That is, after all, how this blog started almost five (!!) years ago!  While the overall food of Holland didn’t strike me as all that unique […]

Sunday Somethings

Hello, Sunday. Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there (child moms, fur moms, plant moms all count), and happy day to all of you that aren’t.  You are no less special and important! This weekend I finally got my act together, and got […]

See the World: A Day in Delft

See the World: A Day in Delft

I hope you enjoyed our little walk through the tulips.  I’m still having a hard time deciding which picture to enlarge and frame (because, how could I not?).  What do you think? Anyway, continuing with our travel tale, we left our bikes in Edam and […]

See the World: Our Dutch Tulip Trip

See the World: Our Dutch Tulip Trip

After I don’t know how many years of getting bypassed on the trip wish list, The Tulip Trip actually happened! For years, Lettuce, Tomato and I talked about repeating our Oktoberfest2010 biking Bavaria through the tulip fields of Holland, but boyfriends and jobs, and hiking […]

Hello, Sunday. The sun is shining, it’s a beautiful day.  I’ve rested back to my normal self (which did involve locking Crawley out of the bedroom more than one morning when the 3 AM poking started, no doubt some sort of revenge for me leaving […]

See the World: Toronto Layover

See the World: Toronto Layover

Trip recovery is hard, and I made it harder with a quick day trip to Chicago on Sunday because I really know to go get over jet lag. With an 8-hour round trip road trip, obviously. Getting back into the swing of not having the […]

The Jolly Hostess’ Top 10 Euro Eats

The Jolly Hostess’ Top 10 Euro Eats

We’ve come to the last of my wonderful guest posters, and this one is pretty apropos given my last week. Meet Alana Jolly of the adorably and appropriately named blog, The Jolly Hostess (you know I just LOVE me a good pun). If you’re hosting […]

Eat the World: Chicago

Eat the World: Chicago

Chicago is a great city for so many reasons, but I think it really stands out on dining. It’s the reason that I left 10 or so more pounds (let’s be real, 15) heavier than when I arrived. Some of it is no doubt age.  […]

See the World: Québec City

See the World: Québec City

Hello!  Let’s take a walk through Québec, shall we? Mushroom and I decided to spend a couple days away from Montreal, and so really early one morning we took the three hour train, and ended up in what only can be described as a fairy tale. […]
