The Best Food Movies

If I’m going to be real with you (all 3 of you who read this blog) – -blogging is hard. I have to think of something to cook interesting enough to blog about, cook it, remember to take pictures, edit and upload pictures, try to write something witty etc., etc.  And even though it all […]

Stuttgart Weihnachtsmarkt: The food of a traditional Christmas Market

One thing I have learned while living here is that Germans love their festivals. Fests happen all throughout the year and are usually centered around two things: food and alcohol. During this cold and dark time of year (really, I haven’t seen any sun in over a week, just white/grey skies) the twinkling lights of a […]

Moving to Stuttgart, Germany: The Prologue

I feel like I need to start this post with two disclaimers, so here they are: This is not a food-focused post. But I moved to Europe and that’s interesting (right?) I am happy here, there will be some complaints in what follows but my overall attitude is positive. I got the idea for this […]

Breakfast and Babies

I’ve realized lately that a mark of my age exists in my Facebook news feed. Where there used to be pictures from wild Saturday nights out, I now see mostly pictures of babies, weddings and new house projects.  I’m hitting that age, apparently, where I will be surrounded by young children at most outings–this coming […]

Farfalle Pasta with Spinach and white beans

It’s been a rough week for me. Nothing really big happened, it was just one of those weeks that wears on you and by Friday I was ready to collapse so I was happy to have the afternoon/night to myself.  Thomas was with our friend Trent (who lives way out in Middleburg!) to play golf […]

Lusting for (Zesty) Salad

I’ve been out for awhile now– between searching for a new job and planning for my May 3rd wedding, something had to give.  Unfortunately, that meant this blog but at least I managed to keep my sanity and not go bridezilla on anyone (save for one minor flower issue). The wedding was beautiful, the food […]

The 5 Least Appetizing Pictures from AllRecipes.com (that might actually be good)

I love browsing recipes at AllRecipes.com.  It’s free, which I love, and it gives me ideas for recipes of my own.  The cool thing about this site is that the public submits recipes and anyone who makes the recipe can submit a photo. The bad thing is that anyone can submit a photo.  I don’t […]
