Where Have All the Tourists Gone? Part 2

Dear Reader, Martha’s Vineyard could be a foodie’s paradise. Recently, my boyfriend and I made a trip to Martha’s Vineyard for vacation (more here). While the island is a hub for tourists in the summer months, things are pretty much left to the locals in the dead of winter. Regardless, we enjoyed exploring all the... Continue Reading →

[Review] Hello Fresh

Dear Reader, Have you ever tried one of those meal prep services? My birthday was recently and as a gift a family member gave me a gift card to purchase three meals from the service Hello Fresh.

The First Crepe is a Blob

Dear Reader, As a novice baker, I tend to bake within my comfort zone. So, instead of looking far and wide for new recipes, I take comfort in putting together sweet breads (more here), flatbread (more here), and sometimes even cakes (more here). All was well in my little kitchen, until, unexpectedly, my boyfriend put... Continue Reading →

How About A Date?

Unlike a few other vegetarian and vegan eateries in the area like Veggie Galaxy, True Bistro boasts an upscale atmosphere in addition to... Continue Reading →

A Bazaar of Flavors

Dear Reader, Do you have a favorite coffee shop that you frequent? I have a top few that I rotate between. Having a regular haunt takes the guesswork out of your day. At best, it can be a convenient time-saver, however, at worst, it can trap you into a repetitive cycle. I so frequently get... Continue Reading →
