Dough Loco Review

Dough Loco Review

I feel like I have to explain myself when it comes to Dough Loco. Their doughnuts look so beautiful and inviting, and I’ve tried a bunch of their flavors (chocolate, raspberry Sriracha, cinnamon sugar, maple miso and pineapple brown butter), but I am just not major fan of them. I think that they make a […] more…

O.K., so maybe I’m heating up a slice of New Park pizza in the oven while I’m writing this post about a healthy, vegetable quinoa bowl. But you probably knew that already.

Weight Gain, But Not From Food

Weight Gain, But Not From Food

Surprise, surprise, I have been blaming all of my weight gain on eating a lot, but looking back, I think it simply isn’t 100% true. In the past 7-8 months, I have had to switch back and forth between some medications and think that my body has been constantly trying to adjust them and one […] more…
Papa Rellenas Recipe

My husband was sick one day, but he wasn’t craving your typical chicken noodle soup.

The Valentine’s Macaron Massacre

The Valentine’s Macaron Massacre

Trying to stay on a clean eating kick this week has really hindered my going out. I’ve been trying to keep myself busy at home and one of the things that I have been doing is going to food photos on my computer that I never wrote about. Apparently there are a ton. I like […] more…

It’s quite amazing how much foodporn I find on my phone and computer. I can’t even remember how long ago this picture was taken, but look at it, I remember a very tasty, albeit, very salty, brisket sandwich and brisket poutine from Mile End Deli. Actually, thinking back on it now, all I can remember […] more…

Back to the Food Diary

[Update: So after talking with my husband, with the amounts of processed food I was eating, I shouldn't have been gaining that much weight. BUT we did realize that I have been changing medications in the past 8 months, which is when my body started gaining the weight, which would also explain why it's been […] more…
Makana Restaurant NYC

Super fast, great prices and it really hits the spot. Patrick loves ordering their Island Girl sushi roll, while I like opting for something new and […] more…
