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.
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.
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 unique is the irresistible blend of Indonesian culture with classic fine dining cuisine.

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 also mean going out for a delicious meal.
Always being on the go means that the blog gets a little neglected (which is a great reason to follow along on Instagram to stay up to date with all of my adventures) but I’m finally taking a few minutes to recap a few of my winter favorites so far.
When I went to New Orleans in 2016 it was one of the best experiences of my college career.

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.

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.

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 the end of October and I have to say, it was absolutely nothing like I had expected.
When it comes to deciding what’s for dinner, it’s always a challenge. “What are you in the mood for?” “I don’t know, what are you in the mood for?” is the consistent without fail back and forth that I encounter. The pressure is always on me as the resident “foodie” to make the call and it’s not always the best position to be in, especially when everyone is getting hangry.
