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.  […]

Eat the World: Vancouver

Eat the World: Vancouver

Vancouver, I’ve got a crush on you. I wanted to write a comprehensive Eat the World, See the World per usual after a trip, but the truth is that Mom and I were only there as a stopover- a mere two days plus a few […]

See the World, Eat the World: Boston

See the World, Eat the World: Boston

Boston, new love of my life. Just kidding, as if London would ever lose that distinction.  While our affair only lasted a mere five days, I fell a little bit in love nonetheless. It had the vibe that was a little bit London, and a […]

Cajun Fettuccine

It’s no secret to any of my bests that I love barbecue. All of it.  Though I’ve made quite the variety here, I really don’t discriminate on style. Much to my surprise, I found that I loved Carolina barbecue as much as what I consider […]

A Hasty Devonshire

Yesterday was a day. The kind of day that starts out gloomy and cloudy and never quite recovers. Every email is annoying, every request overly burdensome. The gym doesn’t help.  Music doesn’t help. Peanut butter negligibly helps.  All that’s left to do is accept it, […]

New York Pizza- It’s Hip to be Square

Hello party people. While Mom and I head home from our very merry Disney excursion, I figured I’d take the opportunity to introduce you to another one of my bests:  Licorice. Licorice and I go way back to college times, and despite all odds, busy […]

See the World, Eat the World:  Washington, D.C.’s 14th Street District

See the World, Eat the World: Washington, D.C.’s 14th Street District

We live in distracted times, and end up with distracted minds.  We check our phones, our computers constantly. Facebook. Twitter. Instagram. How many followers do I have? How many likes? It’s become so much the new normal that it takes such a conscious effort- a […]

See the World, Eat the World: London

See the World, Eat the World: London

London. The love of my life.  Whenever anyone tells me that they are going, I get so excited for them and want to tag along, too. I start rambling about all the places to go, things to do, restaurants to try; my mind and mouth […]

Eat the World: Reykjavik

Eat the World: Reykjavik

Now that I’ve told you what I saw and did in Reykjavik, let’s talk about what I ate. Because that is just as (or more….depending on your point of view) important. Despite knowing that poor planning in this area could potentially lead to disastrous ends, […]
