Chowder has always been a favorite of mine. Like many of my favorite things, it’s not exactly the best for us health wise, but give me a hearty cup of chowder and I’m a happy girl. As a big chowder fan, my mission to find the best cup in New England happened naturally. Although an ongoing journey, here’s what I’ve gathered so far.Continue reading “New England Clam Chowdown”
It may be legal in Massachusetts, but The Smoke Shop in Kendall Square is not a place where you can marijuana. The only thing getting high at The Smoke Shop is the pile of bbq on customers’ plates.

I am a big Upstate New York fan. Always have been, always will be. But when opportunity knocks, you’ve got to open the door.

My dad and I are very different, but one thing we’ve always had in common was our love of food. Now that I am older, and more adventurous, our shared love of food has been a great way to spend some quality time together. It also means dining out at restaurants I can’t afford. Thanks Dad!
