My Top 10 in New York City

This summer, differing from my normal intentions of plenty of beach time and music, I spent my summer working hard during an internship, a taste of what my life is to become in the coming years post culinary school. I was lucky enough to land an internship at Gramercy Tavern, a New York institution as…

Seven Days in Sydney

A few weeks ago, I landed from a week long trip in Sydney, Australia.  I’ve been peeling from the intense sun and desperate to go back ever since.  It was a whirlwind trip, one that included all the major sights of the city, plus some underground spots and local watering holes introduced to me by…

Welcome 2014!

It’s been a while, guys. It’s been a crazy new year.  I hope it’s been awesome for everyone, and I’m back now, and have plenty more food–related fun to share. For New Years, The Russian and I traveled to Maine for some serious R&R.  We rented a small cabin in the middle of nowhere.. ..and…

Hiking Day and Roasted Chicken

Right before it got to frigid to even think about going outside, The Russian and I went for a hike at Noanet peak in Dover. You can see all the way to Boston from the top of the peak, and the climb is beautiful. It was nice to get out of the city, even for…

Turkey trimmed to the nines: Thanksgiving at five luxury hotels

Guys, click the link below, it was passed on to me by a travel site for those who cannot cook this year, there’s still time for you to head to one of these luxury hotels (I wish!) and try some delicious food without lifting a finger.  It’s not exactly frugal, but it’s the time of…

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…

Off for a few days to Never Never Land

Not sure if I have mentioned this, but I love to go to festivals.  I’ve been to a bunch in my life, from Ultra in Miami a few years ago to Lolapalooza in Chile last year. This week I head home to New York for a few days to attend Camp Bisco in Mariaville, NY. …

Tasty Travel: The Pub, Fort Lauderdale

Last week, The Russian and I went to Fort Lauderdale, Florida with some friends.  It was wonderful.  Beach, sand, friends, and nothing but time to catch up on some Game of Thrones reading. My friend has some property connected to the Marriott Harbor Beach, so the backdrop for said reading was just wonderful. I was…

Tasty Travel: The Landing at 7 Central

Being inspired by my upcoming travels, I wanted to share a great place I found that’s not to far away from Boston, so those who cannot fly anywhere can at least have a mini–getaway. So a few weeks ago The Russian and I took the commuter rail (gotta stay frugal) to Singing Beach in Manchester–by–the–Sea….

Frugal Foodie in Florida!

So this Tuesday, The Russian and I are joining some friends in (hopefully) sunny Ft. Lauderdale.  My friend from college has a pretty large house out there and is letting us stay for the week. While I will try to post on the food and sun, I am not sure how often I will get…
