Not Your Average Joe’s Harvest Dinner

One of my favorite things about living near Boston is the endless food options. No matter what neighborhood you’re in, whether it’s right in the heart of the city or in one of the many suburbs, good food is all around. It’s essentially a foodie playground, and I am endlessly excited by all of the food adventures that are here for the taking. (more…)

From Italy to France: A Progressive Dinner

The concept of a progressive dinner has always intrigued me. I love the idea of getting to try different tastes at different places throughout the course of a meal, but the thought of physically moving from one location to the next always sort of kept me away. I think part of the joy of dining out is getting to settle into a meal and a space, so when you have you pick up and move right in the middle, I sort of expected that’d ruin the experience. That said, I’m always game for new food experiences, and when I finally decided to try the progressive dinner thing, I found it to be a truly wonderful experience. (more…)

Terramia Ristorante

Hello, friends! Can you tell it’s summer again? I am a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad blogger in the summertime… there’s just so much to do, and it’s hard to sit myself down inside when I could be outdoors! I’m sure you understand the sentiment. I also bought a house recently, and moved into it about a month ago, so that’s been a pretty consuming (but very rewarding) experience. Anyway, it’s been ages since I had a chance to sit down with some fellow bloggers for a meal, but recently I had the opportunity to dine at Terramia Ristorante in the North End. Terramia has been on my to-go-to list for ages, so I was psyched to finally give it a try! (more…)

The Barking Crab

The Barking Crab is somewhat of a Boston landmark. Open in 1994, they provide the city with some amazing seafood options, in a casual, laid-back atmosphere right on the water. In my nearly 10 years living in this city, I haven’t ever had a chance to check it out until a couple of weeks ago, when they hosted a PR event and invited some local foodie folks. (more…)

Lunching with Farm Feedery

It’s safe to say I have been a lazy blogger lately. L-a-z-y. Work has been busy, life has been busy, physical therapy fills my empty time, and the weather has been too nice to ignore. I think it’s just that time of year, when the world comes back to life, and we all remember how amazing it is. It’s easy to leave the kitchen behind in favor of sunshine! But as we speak, there’s a loaf of banana bread in the oven, so that’s progress, right?? (more…)

Scenes from a Weekend in Baltimore

I made a promise to myself that this year would be a really good one — full of new experiences, fun trips, more time with friends and family, and pushing my boundaries a bit more than normal. After making this same promise to myself year after year and never really following through, I’m doing my best to make it a reality in 2015. Having to undergo unexpected ACL and meniscus surgery has certainly thrown a wrench in those plans, but I am still determined to make the most of it! (more…)

Nibbles and Sips in Portland, Maine

I love Portland Maine. It’s such a lovely little city with wonderful New England charm — cobblestone streets, waterfront properties, great eateries, and some adorable shops. I am fortunate to have a good friend that lives just north of the city, so I have an “excuse” to visit more frequently than I otherwise might. I’ve been visiting the city and surrounding towns since I was a little kid, and as a result have had the good fortune to visit, and more importantly eat at, a lot of different places. But every visit, I try to seek out a few new-t0-me spots to try, and during my most recent visit, I finally got a chance to try Eventide Oyster Co. But first, the Portland Hunt & Alpine Club!
