Fong’s Now Open in Cedar Rapids

Friday I had the opportunity to taste a sneak peak of the newest restaurant hitting Cedar Rapids, and the New Bohemia neighborhood. I tried to accurately explain to my tablemates how excited I get when I'm invited to soft openings of restaurants but I think it came out as "It feels like Christmas". Needless to...

Philly adventures: Day Three and Four

We kicked off the day by drooling over every section of the Di Bruno Bros grocery. I wanted all the things the same way most women feel when they walk into Target, or kids into a toy store.

Philly adventures: Day Two

After a first successful night in Philadelphia, we cobbled together an even better day on the second day. And heads up, it just gets better each day until we leave. It's not a trip to Philly without a philly cheesesteak, right? And instead of relying on a tourist magazine, or heavily researched food blog, we... Continue Reading →

Philly adventures: Day One

I had the opportunity to head to Philly last week, and fell into successful food adventures every step of the way. Now that my hangover has worn off, and believe me it took a few days, I can resurface with a clear memory of amazing meals. Our first night, we headed to The Dandelion. Stumbling...

A new year reset

We're sitting fresh into a new year, a time when everyone is discussing resolutions, #newyearnewyou, and are flushed with motivation. Personally, I was dragging my bloated, tipsy ass all the way through the last month of the year, feeling the impending doom of the new year. I was, gulp, looking forward to an excuse to...

Best of 2017

I love looking through Best Of/Top 'Whatever Number' lists of the year. It is hard to take the shining moments from an entire year and put them in a cohesive list. So, this is my best shot. It's mostly the cream that rose to the top. Keep in mind that many good menus were probably... Continue Reading →

Community Supported Pig

You can rarely list the good decisions you've after too many old-fashioneds. I'm fortunate to say, I can name two. The Community Supported Pig is one of them. And upon every pick up, as I gleefully walk away on clouds with a bag of goodies in hand, I think about the fateful night I was... Continue Reading →
