Day 11 – Roast Pork or Cheesesteak?

It’s Day 11, and it’s been days since I’ve updated! My apologies, guys! It’s been a busy couple of days, leaving Pittsburgh and running around Philly. If you want to keep up with me on a day-to-day basis, you can always check out my Instagram account here since I always upload a photo every coupleRead more

Day 6 – Tacos and The Duquesne Incline

It seems that despite the fact that it’s been 6 days since I’ve been on the East Coast, my body refuses to adjust to the 3-hour time difference. I woke up today at 12 noon, which is a bit late for my liking. I was rather well-rested though, so that’s a positive to waking upRead more

Hallo everyone! Happy Wednesday! Hope you’ve all had a lovely day because I sure did! I did a lot of exploring today, so hope you’re ready for an extra long post. After a couple days of not knowing anything about anything, I feel like I have a better grasp of where things are now andRead more

Day 2 – Bikes and Carnegie Museums

Whew, I’m pooped. I know I said that yesterday, but I really am tired! I woke up today around 10:30AM, which is pretty late for me when I’m traveling.

If you’ve ever wanted to be fancy and make your own sausage, this is your recipe! This recipe came about on whim, really. I found myself walking around the Los Altos farmers’ market on Thursday and came across some really pretty stone fruits—peaches, plums, and apricots. Since I make a lot of food choices accordingRead more

Pad Thai with Shrimp and Tofu

When I was re-watching Cutthroat Kitchen the other day during my usual Netflix food show binge, I came across an episode where the contestants had to make their best pad Thai. Seeing how simple the dish was (minus the 5 billion sabotages that some of the chefs had to go through), I thought, “Hey, maybe I shouldRead more

Mussels and Shrimp in Romesco Sauce

Earlier last week, I went to get some shell-on shrimp to try a pasta recipe I had in mind. I found myself over at Whole Foods, since the markets in my neighborhood are only open until the early evening, around 6PM or so. While scouring the seafood section for the shrimp I wanted, I saw thatRead more
