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 […]

Sampling Coney Island Dogs

Last weekend, Thomas and I visited some of his family in Ohio.  They live about 2 hours from Detroit, so we flew into that airport. By happenstance, I was watching a “Food Paradise” show on hot dogs the day before and they featured two hot dog restaurants in Detroit that are owned by the same […]

Date Night: Bourbon Steak Lounge

Steak Tartare. Raw beef finely chopped and mixed with capers, onion, Dijon, parsley and other delicious elements. While family and friends often find it weird–and even disgusting (in theory at least, they haven’t tried it)–I managed to get my fiance, Thomas, in to it as well.  It wasn’t very hard; if you can get a […]
