I was one of the bloggers selected by T. Marzetti Company and Clever Girls Collective to host a Marzetti Otria Greek Yogurt Veggie Dip review. They provided me with product to test and compensation for my time. However, my opinions are entirely my own. Greek yogurt in a dip? Um … That’s exactly what I […]

I was going through photos today and came across ones from a Seattle bakery that I’ve meant to write about but haven’t yet. What better time than now? When Cate and I jetted off to Seattle for Starbucks Coffee College back in May, we literally spent our last afternoon eating our way through Pike Place. […]

When my husband and I heard that a macaroni and cheese place was opening nearby, we were psyched. Macaroni and cheese — the good homemade kind — is something we can all agree on and the idea of a place that does many varieties was totally alluring. Of course, it took months before we got […]

Editor’s Note: A little break from the ordinary today with a book review. This post was written due to my involvement in the BlogHer Book Club. I was provided an electronic copy of the book Slow Love and am being compensated for my review. This hasn’t impacted the content. Slow Love by Dominique Browning is […]

A good friend of mine and I joke that fate tried everything to get us to be friends. We grew up less than a mile from each other. We attended Catholic schools in the same area, albeit different ones. We took ballet classes (different studios) and had mutual friends (though we didn’t know it). Still, […]

It struck me this weekend: we are a mere two weeks away from the end of summer vacation. It leaves me tempted to cry Where has the summer gone? But I already know. It’s gone to lazy days at the beach, long bike rides along the shore, swimming and day trips. It’s been a good […]

Lobster rolls are a big thing in New England. Cold lobster rolls — ones that have sweet pieces of lobster enrobed in a little mayo dressing and piled into a toasted New England hot dog bun — are what are most often served. They’re often called Maine lobster rolls and many, many people adore them. […]

I am a total sucker for roadside food joints. Particularly ones that have stood the test of time with a loyal following and a reliable menu. The Lake Zoar Drive-In definitely does this. I stopped recently with the kids to see if their burgers were as good as I remember. This roadside burger place has […]

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 […]
