Oklahoma (By Way Of Boston’s South End)?

Whaling in Oklahoma started appearing on lists and my Instagram feed shortly after I arrived in Boston. But as the note on my phone continued to grow with restaurants to visit, keeping up with the "must-see" spots became increasingly difficult. Most people probably don't scroll through their open table apps just to see what's out... Continue Reading →

A Friendsgiving Feast

Last year for #friendsgiving I made chicken cutlets and macaroni and cheese. This year for Friendsgiving I followed a more traditional menu, and was rather impressed with the results. Any gathering, friendsgiving or not, in my opinion, is incomplete, without snacks. For the evenings apps, I decided the best way to go was charcuterie. Who... Continue Reading →

Eat Cake For Breakfast

Taking a sip of coffee from my Kate Spade mug, I glance at the phrase glazed across the outside. "Eat cake for breakfast" it reads. For the entire time I've owned this mug, I've always thought it was just a colorful little phrase. That is, until, I discovered In A Pickle Restaurant in Waltham, Massachusetts....

Feeling Fancy at Yono's

There really is no such thing as normal. But dining at Yono's is certainly an experience far grander than just a "normal" night out. It is without a doubt fine dining, where your water glass is never empty and your utensils are changed out with every course. But what makes a dinner at Yono's truly... Continue Reading →

A Winter Recap

The past few months have been busy. The weeks fly by and the weekends go by even faster. I suppose that means I'm doing something right. I make it a goal to make the most of my time, and although that sometimes means binge watching Shameless on the couch for hours on end, it can... Continue Reading →

Not NOLA, But Close Enough

When I went to New Orleans in 2016 it was one of the best experiences of my college career. Although this answer might change depending on whose asking, the highlight of the trip was definitely discovering the cajun cuisine, and of course hurricanes on Bourbon Street. I've gotten small tastes of NOLA from time to... Continue Reading →

A Food Filled Year In Review

In the last year I've done quite a bit. I went to Maine, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Canada. I explored Albany, Schenectady, Troy, Saratoga, the Adirondacks, and Western New York. With every adventure I tried something new and as the year comes to an end I decided to take a look at the tastiest, and... Continue Reading →

A Chilly Day For Chili

When the snow started falling in the early afternoon I thought my plans were ruined. But despite the wintry weather, the streets of Schenectady were as full as the bellies of those who were walking them, and as the sun began to set, the 3rd Annual Chili Chowdown was in full swing. As the weather gods would... Continue Reading →

But Is It Doughnut or Donut?

They come in sugar or glazed or chocolate sprinkle, freshly made with a side of apple cider, or even with a scoop of ice cream in between. Technically, it's spelled doughnut, and it's one of the most popular pastries out there right now. Here in Upstate New York when you talk about doughnuts immediately someone... Continue Reading →

Upstate Hits Dallas

Hey Y'all! I know, it's a cliche way to start a blog about my recent trip to Texas, but after spending just 4 days in the Big D I have already caught myself using Y'all in regular conversation. In case you missed it on my Instagram, I was in Dallas for a few days during... Continue Reading →
