Apparently It’s Time for an Annual Pilgrimage to Richmond…

Apparently I travel to Richmond every October, and around the same weekend. Huh. Most years it’s to meet up with my mother who flies in for the folk festival every year, but this time, I decided to whisk G away for a break from the house for a much needed break. Which sortof worked and […]

Labor Day Weekend Recap

Our campsite at Douthat Before I get into the recap (Labor Day weekend was incredibly wonderful all around & I hope you all had as much fun as I did), I just got home from my first massage in years. And I feel…strange. Relaxed, definitely, but also so happy that I’m sad, or melancholic at […]

Sunset Beach, NC

I know, I know, I just started the Monday Archive idea two weeks ago, but you’re going to have to work with me because I have a backlog of posts so I’m switching it up today with a mini-vacation (but not-so-mini-lengthwise) post! View from our back porch on the first day–a wee bit rainy, but […]

Brooklyn Wrap-Up

I’m going to take a lead from Tasha and NOT apologize for my absence. I owe you guys a long what-the-hell-has-happened-lately-in-my-life-post (wow, that was a lot of hyphens in a row), but for the moment, I’m simply going to wrap-up the Brooklyn trip and dwell on a few of the high notes. A trip to […]

Roebling Tea Room — Brooklyn, NY

It’s impossible to ever feel like you eat 1% of what you ought to when visiting New York City–especially when you’re on a time crunch like G & I were this last trip. Since three years had passed since I was last there and since I’m no longer a vegan, it was a different ball […]

Brooklyn, Brooklyn, You Steal My Heart Every Time

After our eating that amazing fried egg reuben at Blue Sky in Bethlehem, G & I hopped in our car and headed east to New York. The drive itself wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be–we didn’t hit any traffic and even driving across Manhattan wasn’t too bad. A little slow, but nothing […]

Blue Sky Cafe — Bethlehem, PA

I know it seems like all I do is travel these days–which I wish were the case!–but life’s been a bit nutso in-town, so there hasn’t been much cooking. Two weeks ago, though, I was lucky enough to drive up to New York City to see David, a fantastic friend who I haven’t seen since […]

Emory University Area–Eats & Etc.

I wish I didn’t have to wrap up these Atlanta posts–I wish there were a way in which I could just be in Atlanta and eat everywhere I want to. A month later now, looking back, I can’t believe how awesome that trip was, even if I didn’t get to go everywhere and see everyone […]


This is a story about bicycles and pizza. It started with the plan to lunch at Miller Union–a restaurant that had been on my list from the get-go, especially with all the love Steven Satterfield’s been getting from the New York Times, Food and Wine, and countless bloggers and food critics. Even though the farm […]

Restaurant Eugene–Atlanta

Sometimes the most memorable meals of life are too delicious to truly write about, and my thoughts on Restaurant Eugene pale in comparison to the food. Some moments–like the vidalia onion soup–may not look like much, but every bite of this dinner was different and exciting, every second a second to savor. I’m so glad […]
