What is Australian Food?

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

 ~~~Sponsored Post~~~
While recently attending a Tourism Australia event, it dawned on me that I don’t know what Australian food is. This bothered me immensely, as I associate each destination on my bucket list with all the foods I will eat when I get there. I dream about the noodle shops in Japan, the gravlax in […]

Sanibel & Captiva, Florida

Tuesday, February 5, 2013

We just got back from a brief family vacation in Sanibel & Captiva Islands, two little places connected by a causeway to Fort Myers, Florida. The weather was perfect throughout our stay: a low of 58 and a high of 80 and clear blue skies. This is a truly unique destination, where it never seems […]

Travel Eating + Give-Away

Thursday, December 6, 2012

A few months after we met, Lon and I took a four-city trip together. Somewhere between the comforting stews in Budapest and the pastries in Vienna, I fell in love with Lon. This was the guy I could eat every meal with for the rest of my life. He vacationed the same way I did. […]

Royal Carribean’s Explorer of the Seas (+ tips for eating)

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

The fear of traveling with a baby can be crippling or at least very delaying. It feels like forever since we took a vacation! Luckily, our short weekends to The Culinary Institute of America and Philly gave us a little steam and we booked a last minute deal on a cruise to Bermuda, St. Maarten, […]

Vacation at the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) + Give-Away

Sunday, January 22, 2012

Anyone who loves to cook has heard of The Culinary Institute of America (CIA). It is the premier culinary school of the United States and according to Paul Bocuse, “the best culinary school in the world.” What you may not know — I sadly did not — is that it is also the best food-lovers […]

Brasserie 292

Friday, December 16, 2011

Lon and I headed up to Poughkeepsie, NY for a nearly impromptu press trip this past Sunday. The plan was really to begin our tour on Monday morning and since we wanted to avoid Monday morning traffic we were on our own for Sunday.  We didn’t have super high expectations for restaurants in a small, […]

Potato Chips from London

Wednesday, December 1, 2010

One of the things Lon and I love to do when we travel is check out the local supermarkets. In particular, the potato chip aisle, where we’re always bound to find new and unexpected flavors. (Remember the Paprika chips and the Olive Oil chips we found in Greece? or the Magic Masala chips from India?) […]

Las Vegas Taste Tour

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

We were so honored to be invited by Harrah’s Entertainment Group to their first Las Vegas Taste Tour. Seven restaurants and one lounge was a lot to handle in just 3 days but we managed. The itinerary was put together to exclusively showcase Harrah’s propoerties so while we did not chose where to go, we […]

Five Days in London

Monday, October 25, 2010

I spent five days in London, where grapes are called Sultanas, French fries are called chips, and arugula is rocket. This time it was just me and my gal pals, no Lon. Still, the only way I know how to travel is to migrate through food and let all other sight-seeing be incidental. The hard […]

More of Eating Orlando

Tuesday, August 31, 2010

Only 30 minutes after our breakfast at Bull & Bear, we were on our way to lunch at
Pho 88 730 North Mills Avenue, Orlando, FL 32803 to eat with a local food writer/blogger, Scott Joseph.
The spring rolls were disappointing since they used Chinese spring roll wrappers, not the bubbly kind. The […]
