  • I've Moved!
    on Jan 19, 2011
    So, many of you know, I've moved- in more than one sense.  I've moved across the country to San Francisco so I feel that I must move my blog as well.  It seems like I'm a bit of a poser if I keep posting about DC when I don't live there any...
  • I Miss East Coast Pizza
    on Jan 11, 2011
    The San Francisco Bay area has a lot of amazing food.  No one can deny that.  Some of the world's top restaurants and chefs have set up shop here.  One food that I haven't found to be great here: pizza.I don't want to generalize too mu...

  • My Chat with Top Chef All Stars' Spike Mendelsohn
    on Dec 15, 2010
    Yesterday I had the privilege of speaking with Chef Spike Mendelsohn, the famed fedora-donning celebrity chef from Top Chef Season 4 and the current Top Chef All Stars. His resume is impressive to say the least. He was trained in classic French cuisi...
  • Road Trip America, Pit Stop #5: Lake Havasu via the Grand Canyon
    on Dec 9, 2010
    Today is the second to last day of our cross-country journey and we started it off with the sight we were most looking forward to seeing- the Grand Canyon.  We drove about an hour up the long two-lane road to the main parking area.  We grab...
  • Road Trip America, Pit Stop #4: Flagstaff via New Mexico and the Meteor CraterYesterday was a long travel day of about 10 hours.  We got up early and left the hotel without breakfast in the hopes that we could make it to the Meteor Crater in Winslow, AZ before they close at 5pm while still seeing other sights along the wa...
  • Road Trip America, Pit Stop #3- OklahomaToday we got up early in Fort Smith, Arkansas and crossed the bridge into Oklahoma.  Miles and miles of quiet highway with small, quiet forgotten towns were speckled along the way.Our first stop was to see the Oklahoma City Memorial.  It wa...
  • Road Trip America- Pit Stop #1: Pizza Palace, Knoxville, TN
    on Dec 6, 2010
    As you may know I'm in the middle of moving across the country to San Francisco.  What better opportunity to see (and taste) the country than a cross-country road trip?  After packing up our house into a moving van and packing our dogs into...
  • Road Trip America, Pit Stop #2: Nashville to Fort Smith, AZ Via Memphis (cont.)
    on Dec 6, 2010
    Ok, there wasn't really "nothing."  There was something, but nothing I care to see again. We decided to hit up Graceland along the way and hope to get some Memphis BBQ.   I cannot express how much we deeply regret this. If you're...

    Day #2 of the journey and we set off on 40W from Nashville to the other side of Arkansas in Fort Smith.  Oh man, do you know what there is to see along the way?!!!!Nothing.  Absolutely nothing.
  • App Review: Epicurious for iPhone
    on Nov 8, 2010
    Photo courtesy of iTunesThere are tons of food-related iPhone apps out there and I honestly find most of them useless.  They either don't have the features that I would want or have only a handful of recipes.  I have come across one th...
  • Brunch is Awesome
    on Oct 26, 2010
    I love brunch. There is nothing more perfect after rolling out of bed extra late on a Sunday and brushing off a hangover with some Eggs Benedict (Benny) or Belgian waffles. This weekend being Halloween I imagine there will be plenty of need for a glu...
  • Devouring San Francisco
    on Oct 20, 2010
    Nope- this just doesn't have the same feel as Devouring DC.  Lacks originality and alliteration.  Now that I'm a Bay Area transplant I'm going to have to redirect my foodie focus.  I could still write about DC, I just won't have any re...
  • The CIA Is Coming to DC!
    on Oct 18, 2010 in Food News
    Not that one from Langley, the food one.  I'm talking about the Culinary Institute of America, one of the most prestigious culinary schools in the world with an alumni roster that includes the likes of Cat Cora, Michael Symon, John Besh, An...

  • It's My Birthday and I Will Eat What I Want To
    on Sep 30, 2010
    Yay, it's my birthday and I'm (none of your damn business) years old!  If there is one day out of the year I let myself eat anything I want (and there isn't, it's most days actually, but I digress,) it's today!  Where will I go? ...
  • Boneless Pork Loin Chops with Curry Butternut Squash Puree
    on Sep 29, 2010
    It's Autumn! This is absolutely my favorite time of year, and not just because my birthday falls near the beginning of the season (we will not speak of that.)  I love the cooler night air, the leaves turning gold and red and, of course, the harv...
  • Taylor Gourmet...But Not Really
    on Sep 24, 2010
    Last weekend I was doing some shopping in Bethesda and wanted to grab a quick sandwich for lunch to bring home.  I heard the new Taylor Gourmet was really good and I have seen the place look packed before so I thought I'd give it a shot. The men...

    This past Sunday my sister-in-law and I ran in the Philadelphia Rock n' Roll Half Marathon. It was a beautiful day and we ran for a great cause, raising money to support research for MS. After burning about 1300 calories and nourishing our bodie...
