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 […]

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 […]

Sandals Bahamas Honeymoon

I am back in the states, relaxed and tan after my honeymoon to the Bahamas.  We did encounter some luggage issues on both the way there AND back (which Thomas now refers to as “LuggageGate”) but our time at Sandals was wonderful. We are big fans of Sandals: no kids, couples only, wonderful staff and […]

Kaz Sushi Bistro

Last night, Thomas and I went out for a night in DC and we hit up our all time favorite sushi restaurant: Kaz Sushi Bistro. Their sign on the street is small and understated; it would be easy to walk right by this place every day and never really notice it.  When you enter the […]

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 […]

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 […]

A Wine Racket

Several years ago, back when I still used Groupon, I found out about a company called “Wine Insiders.”  This company offers cases of limited selections of wine at bargain prices–often under $10 a bottle. Thomas and I have ordered from them several times and have never been disappointed by the wines–they aren’t stellar but they […]

Trader Joe’s Irish Breakfast Tea review

As I sit at work this morning trying to wake up (it’s a collaboration day, which means we meet with our teams. Since I am the only journalism teacher, I spend the first half of the time collaborating with myself.) I decided to use some of my time “wisely” and write a review of the […]

A proper gin and tonic

In my house we have cocktail hour(s) daily, and we are not ashamed.  Some days, like today, it starts earlier than others. After a successful but uneventful day at work I needed a little something so I dug around the fridge and liquor cabinet and made myself a proper gin and tonic. Now a lot […]
