Oystahs for a $1?

I only started enjoying oysters within the recent past (thanks to the “trying to look cool” act I put on in front of my wonderful boyfriend when we first started dating), but now I cannot get enough of them. Living in Boston has opened up MANY opportunities to enjoy them. The one caveat…they’re expensive. BUT…

Lolita – Boston

Has anyone been Lolita Cocina & Tequila Bar in Back Bay? It is to die for – I went last night for my second time. My cousin and I enjoyed great salsas, a guacamole trio, delicious tacos, and OF COURSE some tasty margaritas (I ordered the firing squad!). This place gives you a real experience…

“Meatballs”

Alright, I have a big trip planned next weekend in the warmest of weather and so I need to look my best. That means this week is low in carbs and high in vegetables! I had all that leftover zucchini and ricotta from my gf vegetarian pizza this week, and I thought…what the heck can…

A Craving is Craving…Even a Healthy Craving

On my way back to Boston from San Diego I had a short layover in the Minneapolis St. Paul airport. It seems random, but actually this terminal is small and delightful with plenty of food options. Being alone, I decided to opt for a flatbread to go option and take it to my gate and…

Healing Powers of Pho and Ramen

Alright, I promise I’m not late in the game. I, as have many of you, have known about the healing powers that both authentic Vietnamese Pho and Japanese Ramen have on the human body. Whether you’re super hungover, down in the dumps, have a little (or a huuuuge) case of the sniffles, or if every…

Hash Houses a Go Go

Oh man, oh man…has anyone else been to Hash House? This place has quite a few locations all over the US (Vegas, Orlando, Connecticut, Texas,  etc) and I found myself at the San Diego location this past weekend; the original location might I add 🙂 They coined the term “twisted farm food” because, “We keep…

Healthy(-er) Chocolate Chip Cookies

So one of my rooomates is Vegan and as I’ve stated before I am definitely not, BUT I definitely enjoy trying everything and let me tell you THIS GIRL makes the best vegan desserts. It’s crazy sounding, I know but it is TRUE. Living with her has opened my eyes to some healthier alternatives to…

Texas Dinin’ and Drankin’ (Part 3)

So in Austin I ate BBQ, which I discussed in my last Texas post, but I also drank some great cocktails and ate some truly farm-to-table meals (because I was literally on a farm…). We hit the town hard on Saturday night – First on Rainey Street we visited Lucille’s Patio Lounge. As the website…

Ballin’ on a Budget: Homemade Chinese Delivery

When I don’t know what I want to eat, it’s really simple actually: I want Chinese food. I’ve learned it always makes me happy, and I’m always satisfied. The downfall? If I don’t want to leave my house (read: always the case) and my favorite delivery has a $20 minimum (read: sigh), that can break…

Texas Dinin’ and Drankin’ (Part 2)

In this post I want to talk about the barbeque I had in Austin, Tx. I mean – the REAL Texas BBQ experience, YUM! The featured picture for this post was my meal. In fact, I’m just going to post it again. We went to Stiles Switch BBQ and what you see on my plate above…

Texas Dinin’ and Drankin’ (Part 1)

I went to Texas for the first time this past weekend and all I have to say is WOW! I had the opportunity to go to San Antonio and Austin, and all that lies in between. In this post I’m going to talk about some fun food and drink spots in San Antonio, Texas. First,…

How I Treat My Boston “Boyfriend”

So as a newbie to Boston I’m lucky enough that one of my best friends from college lives here too. Best part? She and I have very similar palates 🙂 so usually when we hang out we cook together (or just eat a lot of cheese and cured meats…) and drink some wine. I was…
