Tweet Once upon a time, we used a dishwasher as a means to keep food cool. (Definitely cool, not cold.)At first it was hilarious, interesting— a fun challenge. And then it became obnoxious. We grew tired of feeling like squatters in our own apartment. One Sunday, we beelined to the back left corner of Best […]

Tweet I’ve recently started going to the gym before work (there’s too much to do afterward that I don’t want to miss out on…#FOMO!), which leaves me eating two meals at work. Former me would have frowned upon this. Just too much eating at a desk, you know? Over it! But I’ve adjusted to this […]

Eating Well

Tweet “Are you eating?” This is the question my mother has asked me consistently starting the moment I moved to LA. I don’t blame her. LA— land of obsession and an odd ideal of beauty— can have an impact on a gal. Especially when one gal in particular is called out on being “corn fed” […]

Cincinnati Spotlight: A Tavola

by snackface July 11, 2012 Uncategorized

Tweet What once was the “don’t drive through that” area in downtown Cincinnati has since become the new dining and bar destination. Over-the-Rhine, once home to Cincinnati’s infamous riots, has undergone a complete transformation over the past five to six years. It’s now an urban hub for great food, cocktails and boutique shopping. I’ve been […]

Cincinnati Spotlight: Findlay Market

by snackface July 8, 2012 Uncategorized

Tweet I’ve been spoiled. The first food market I ever experienced was San Francisco’s Ferry Building. Years later, I was in awe of Cleveland’s West Side Market. And just last week, I finally made my way to Cincinnati’s famous (or Cincinnati-famous) Findlay Market. As both a Cincinnatian and a food person, I am embarrassed to admit that […]

Recipe-Free and Hapless

by snackface June 21, 2012 Uncategorized

Tweet Some of my all-time favorite blogs do something I’m admittedly terrible at: create recipes. Almost every day. How? HOW! To what blogs am I referring? How Sweet Eats (50000% required reading.) Joy the Baker (Obvs.) Spoon Fork Bacon (RIGHT?) A Cozy Kitchen (And she always has perfect nails.) Peas and Thank You (Sweetest, funniest […]

Back to My Roots

Tweet Listen. You know what frustrates me from a distance? When I see people go on vacation, let themselves enjoy delicious, not-their-everyday food, and then come home and start a serious “clean eats” kick. Whatever that means. I think, “Really? You just enjoyed yourself immensely! What’s the deal?!” But then I go on vacation, and […]

Top to Bottom

Tweet Hello, hello! My days have been jam-packed and gorgeous. I’m a new person. Plus, I just discovered that I have 10 days of vacation this year instead of five. This. Is. HUGE. All year, I’ve been painstakingly plotting vacation days here and there, careful not to spend them all in one place. I did […]

Tweet Remember that one time I went on a lower-carb, higher-protein diet? Today was the opposite of that. When choosing meals without paying mind to what food groups I have/haven’t eaten yet, I go for the grains. For breakfast, a simple mash-up of banana, oatmeal and peanut butter, covered with almond milk and cinnamon. For […]

Tweet Holla for a dolla, honey boo boos! I am completely in love with all your honest, respectful comments on Wednesday’s post. I really appreciate when we can make observations without being offensive. ANYWAY, let’s move forward and have fun! I greeted Thursday as I’ve greeted every day this week: with Greek yogurt. This time, […]
