Haley.Henry Wine Bar

I am always interested in a good wine bar. Always. When I first moved to Boston in August, my boyfriend and I did our own sort of “wine bar crawl” through the city. I tried a few great places, a few overrated places, and one that stuck with me: haley.henry wine bar. It’s just a…

Slow Cooker Sausage, Spinach and White Bean Soup

I know it’s warming up (hopefully to stay!), but I still am craving a good soup! I can’t help it this time of year, I guess. I found this awesome recipe and wanted to share it with you all. Check it out here! Enjoy!

Comforting Stars

What’s your ultimate comfort food? I’m guessing that it’s something heavy, savory, maybe buttery? We all have something… Mine? Pastina. Little star pasta, but prepared the way my family does it, the way my Gramma always used to. It’s super easy, quick, and delightful. What you’ll need: 1/4 cup of Pastina 1 bullion cube 1…

Ink

Alright everyone, I had a true culinary experience on Friday night and I am so excited to tell you about it. My boyfriend and I went to a wedding in Los Angeles and decided to celebrate our Valentine’s Day together while we were there. He made reservations at a restaurant called Ink in West Hollywood. The whole…

Crockpot Craziness

Where do I begin? It’s winter and all I want to eat (besides carbs and starches, of course) is warm, comforting, soothing foods. And I’m willing to bet I am not alone. For Christmas I got a beautiful crockpot and I’ve been so excited to use it. The only problem is that I just don’t…

Exploring the Top of the Hub

Normally I am all about finding unknown foodie spots for great recommendations, but being new to Boston I have to hit some of the touristy spots too. I mean, how can I not? Over the weekend a great friend of mine visited and so it made being a tourist that much easier. On Sunday afternoon,…

Carb Queen (Part 2)

So where is a carb queens favorite neighborhood to eat in Boston? ….you better get this… The North End of course! It’s hard to go wrong at most of the Italian restaurants in the North End, besides sometimes being overpriced. One spot that has been a favorite of my family since before I was born…

Juice Me!

Anyone into these “juice cleanses?” Personally, I’m not – not enough food for me (see my name, “Never Full Foodie”), but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy a good juice every now and again. In downtown Quincy, near where I live, there is a Quench Juicery. Can I just saw YUM? Whether you’re looking for…

Carb Queen (Part 1)

I am a self-proclaimed Carb Queen. Give me some pasta, some bread, a pretzel, or anything that is even remotely filled with carbohydrates…and I will devour it. Granted, I have to admit that some carbs are better than others and as a Carb Queen I believe I have the royalties to rank them appropriately. I’ve…

Cooking with ‘Shrooms

It may surprise you that I grew up a fussy eater. I meant really fussy. Chicken tenders, French fries, rice, bread and butter…maybe some green beans (but only if my Gramma made them!), and that was about it. Slowly but surely, I began to venture out and by the age of 18 I started eating…

Eating Traditional

In my last post I talked about the Icelandic hot dog but in this post I wanted to touch on a couple more adventurous traditional Icelandic eats. For starters there is the fermented shark, called Hákarl, which I didn’t actually try…(it’s supposed to taste terrible) but my friend tried it and confirmed the less-than-appetizing-taste. The…

Iceland’s Hot Dog

I’m not particularly a hot dog fan. I know, I know, people think I’m crazy. When I was preparing for my trip to Iceland I looked at a lot of links about what to eat (obviously). And while there were weird items (fermented shark, fin whale, and puffin) I could not get over how often…
