A Little Queijo in Rio!

♫ Lemme take you to Rio Rio! ♫ But seriously can we go? Pleeeaseeee? Alright so we can’t actually go to Rio. (Sigh) I can dream. But how about bringing a little taste of Brazil into your home? Sound good? Today I present to you a fantastic recipe for Pao de Queijo which is Brazilian Cheese Bread….

Coney Island Cravings

Ok so this isn’t from THE Coney Island (Random fact: I’ve never been to New York. Crazy right?). This cheese laden creation comes from Coney Island in Tulsa, Oklahoma. This little spot has been serving up hot fresh chili-cheesiness since 1926. What we have here is The Cheese Coney. It may look like your run of…

¡Dulce Dulce!

I live for Krispy Kreme doughnuts. I’ve defended Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Anytime someone has tried to rant about how amazing Dunkin’ Donuts is, I’ve had to say, “Uhhh excuse me, Dunkin’s got nothin’ on Krispy Kreme.” They just taste lighter and yummier and just…I don’t know, they’re just better. I’ll always be team Krispy Kreme but when I’m…

Put a Little Soul in it…

Hi all! Today I’m posting my blog’s first recipe! Put a little soul into your dinner with this recipe for my mom’s greens. Just a note: some ingredients do not have precise measurements/instructions. My mom is a pro and kind of cooked by taste. Does that makes sense?  I hope so! Anyhow, these take a considerable…

a la mode’s the way to go.

Who doesn’t love apple pie? It’s the perfect dessert. There are apples in it so it’s basically healthy. Well, at least that’s what I tell myself. If you’re a pie lover like myself and are in the San Diego area, I recommend taking a trip up to Julian, CA. This historic town may be famous for…

Beachy Delights: Part Two

What does everyone absolutely have to have when they go to the beach? Nooo not the perfect beach body. ICE CREAM! Cold, sweet, creamy, drippy deliciousness. If you happen to go to Pacific Beach, I recommend trying something different than the average drip-droppy ice cream cone. Mmmh, how about a custom, made right before your…

Beachy Delights: Part One

Foodies never take a day off, especially for a day at the beach! Last week I went to Pacific Beach in San Diego with my best friend. Us being the food obsessed creatures that we are, our main reason for a beach day was FOOD! I had come across this cute upstairs  beach side restaurant…

Grilled to Perfection

I know we’re nearing the end of August, but don’t put those grills away just yet! I have a quick grilling tip for all of you that appreciate the sweet…the smoky…the barbecue. While grilling, I recommend using a smoker box. Why use a smoker box? A smoker box gives your food that nice smoky flavor…

Stack it Up!

In-N-Out is good, Five Guys is great, but let me tell you about Stacked! A few weeks ago I went to Stacked at Fashion Valley for the first time with some friends for lunch. When I walked in I immediately loved the atmosphere. It’s dimly lit, very spacious, has a full bar, and has several…
