A Tale of Two Cities: Foodie Sisters Wining and Dining in D.C. & Boston

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

I’m learning to love my crock pot – which is both a blessing and a curse because I haven’t gotten to the part yet where I learn to make HEALTHY slow cooker meals – so please comment with any health crock pot recipes you recommend! For two Sundays in a row, I made this dangerously […]

Eurotrip Part Two: Florence

Oh Florence, we meet again. It’s been FIVE years since I studied abroad in this beautiful city, and it has barely changed a bit. The cobblestone streets, the rich history, the amazing paninos and tiny cappuccinos are still the same and I distinctly recall Florence being overrun by tourists almost incessantly for the four months […]

Mint & Lime Avocado Toasts

Happy Thursday all! If you tuned in for last week’s post, you know that I’m currently on a pretty strict gluten-free, low sugar, low dairy diet as I work on healing my body from an illness.  As frustrating as it is, I’m learning so much about how certain foods affect my body and how to […]

French Dip Sliders

It’s finally fall and we’re well into football season, meaning on Sunday mornings I wake up thinking about what to cook for an afternoon in front of the TV with friends. Quick and easy finger foods are my go-to, and I found the recipe for these French Dip Sliders online (link here). Fear not, these […]

Birthday Picnic Bites

I turned 28 last month! Ahhhh the late twenties are officially upon me.  I can no longer claim I’m sorta in my mid-twenties; no, I am now unequivocally a member of the waning twenties club.  But you know what? I’m kinda okay with that! With (some) money of my own to spend and amazing loved […]
