Inside Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana

Inside Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana

When it comes to pizza, it’s no secret that I have a massive love affair with New Haven style pizza. The ultra-thin crusts, flavorful sauces and the sometimes-New England-centric toppings (the White Clam Pie, pictured above, from Frank Pepe’s is the perfect example), make it so special. And in recent years, New Haven has started getting […]

| March 27, 2014 | 0 Comments

Two years ago, the idea for Sarah by the Sea came to me. It would be a place where I’d share my love of the beach, writing, travel and more. Since then, it’s been a place for sharing inspirations, ideas and more. Here are some of the highlights of what I’ve been writing about on […]

Can we get something straight? That corned beef and cabbage bubbling away in the kitchen as a way to pay homage to St. Patrick is … not Irish at all. In fact, that combination — corned beef and cabbage — is something that came straight from America. While it might be too late to trade […]

In Which I Try Dole Whip At Long Last

Sweat beads were forming in the creases of my elbows as I waited in line to pay for my Chicken Caesar Salad. Behind me, another line formed as people gathered around the Dole Whip machines in The Polynesian Resort at Walt Disney World. It was 2012, and I was at my first Food Blog Forum […]

Lunching with Tourism Australia

Lunching with Tourism Australia

Confession: Australia has never been on my must-visit list. It seemed like an awfully far distance to travel to visit a country that wasn’t that different per se. I mean, sure, they have kangaroos and the Great Barrier Reef and all. But that didn’t seem like enough to travel so far for. Good thing I […]

When Cate and I went to Seattle last month, we were lucky to enjoy a lot of really amazing food. Seattle is a total food town, and one that prides itself on its attention to local, sustainable ingredients. How could you not love it? On our first night there, we arrived late and hungry. Though […]

Coffee Brings People Together (And Starbucks Coffee College)

Coffee Brings People Together (And Starbucks Coffee College)

Coffee and I? We’re old buddies. I grew up in a coffee-drinking family, who gathered every weekend day for a leisurely cup. In summer, we’d all sit on the sun porch — even before I started drinking coffee myself — and chat, sometimes inviting neighbors in with a friendly call out the window. Sometimes, we […]

The first time I set foot on Barnard College’s campus, I fell instantly in love. At the time, I was living near Lincoln Center, amid the hustle-bustle of the city. I loved that area, and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. But when I emerged from the subway at 116th Street, it was like walking into […]

A Tale of Two Thanksgivings (Thanksgiving 2010)

A Tale of Two Thanksgivings (Thanksgiving 2010)

| December 1, 2010 | 1 Comment

On Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, we ate but didn’t feast — at least not in the fork-to-mouth sort of way. But we did feast in the beauty of our tropical surroundings. It was bliss. When we returned to Connecticut, we prepared for the other kind of feast — the traditional one had at Thanksgiving. And on […]
