Fall Fun with Flatbread

by

Fall is officially here and I couldn’t be more excited. I’m definitely one of those people that buys pumpkins and pumpkin-flavored goodies as soon as they come out in stores (practically during the spring!) hoping it will somehow force away the last weeks of summer heat and welcome in the cool breezes, crisp evenings and […]

Small Bite Delight: Lumpia

by

Have you ever heard of the foods: Lechon, Sinigang, Longanisa or Adobo? I didn’t think so. If yes, bonus points for you!

Chocolate-Covered Bacon

by

I remember when Vosges introduced Mo’s Milk Chocolate Bacon Bar and people thought it was the wildest thing. “Bacon and chocolate?!?!?!,” they would gasp. “That’s crazy!” Now, but seven short years later, it’s not so strange.

Cascaderade

by

As I was strolling through Costco a few weeks ago, I ended up in the beer section. Somehow this seems to occur every time I make a Costco run. Guilty pleasure I guess. My eyes are trained to look for new and interesting beers that I’ve never had before, and this time was no exception. […]

by

Before last weekend, I’d never written a Yelp review. Despite having been to countless wonderful restaurants and devouring several fantastic meals, writing a Yelp review was never the post-meal priority. But last Saturday, everything changed. I had the best meal of my life and for the first time, writing a Yelp review became the post-meal […]
