Shark Week Recipe: Cupcakes

So Shark Week started last night, and I couldn’t be happier.  I’m watching a special shark themed Mythbusters right now.  It’s the start of an awesome week, and many of my friends are of the same mindset.  One in particular, other than my friend Heather with the shark tattoos, is my friend Sierra.  She is…

Take a bite out of Shark Week

So Shark Week is this week, and I’m excited. Shark Week is a fun time, especially if you like sharks, like a very good friend of mine.  Her name is Heather, and she loves sharks. LOVES SHARKS. She loves them. She has a shark tattooed on her arm.  She talks about sharks daily. While I…

I barely made it back but I still have a recipe

I made it back from Camp Bisco, guys.  Just barely.  It was a great weekend, full of friends, music, and pretty decent weather. And dancing.  Lots of dancing.  When I first got back from Bisco I slept 24 hours, and I still have yet to get out of bed. The funny thing is, I’m sure…

Check out my new channel on BostInno!

I have only been blogging for six months now, but I have some awesome luck.  A few weeks ago I was asked to start my own member channel at BostInno, an awesome site that says it’s ‘The next generation of news,” and I agree.  They really are trying to find the newest and freshest information…

Check out my culinary Travels through Europe

Yesterday, my first of three guest posts was published to Tripologist, a site devoted to giving the inside take on traveling.  Click on the picture to read about the travels (and tastes) of the countries I visited last summer. I’m planning to travel to more destinations with The Russian in the near future, so these…

Recipe: Sangria Floats

Finally, it’s summer, and its so hot outside that you get that sticky feeling all over your body. Not going to lie, I love the heat. The Russian and I will be hitting the beach very soon (and for the rest of the summer).  Before the heat wave hit, however, I found this awesome recipe…

Boston Bites Back, Part 2

Just wanted to share some photos of the incredibly talented Peter Szigeti, a friend of mine and Hungarian import to our shores.  He’s studying photography and took some wonderful photos of The Boston Bites Back event on Wednesday. He took some great photos of the Cafeteria Staff, myself included  When The Russian came, he took…

The Boston Food event to end all events

Fenway Park was the beautiful backdrop for Boston Bites Back, an awesome fundraiser headed by Ming Tsai of Blue Ginger and Ken Oringer of Toro (among others).  Both incredible Boston chefs (and totally intimidating–more on that later) running an amazing event for The One Fund one month after the horrible bombings that shook our city. …

We’re off on the Road to Rhode Island…

As I’ve mentioned before, I graduated last Friday. As a treat and to get out of town for a minute, me and The Russian headed up to Newport, RI. Just a brief overview of our actives in town: The drive only took about 1 1/2 hours and we were a world away.  The Russian, being…

Blogging and its effects on the Boston food community

Kristen Fenton, who writes Indulge Inspire Imbibe, began her food blog on a whim. “I lived in the North End and I was constantly being asked for restaurant recommendations … I just decided to put it online if everyone was asking. It is a nice place to also document the photos I was taking, Fenton…
