Eating and Drinking in the Dominican Republic

Tweet The two trips to the Dominican Republic weren’t planned as such, so my knowledge of Dominican food was limited. We don’t have many Dominican restaurants in Atlanta and I assumed it would be similar to other Caribbean flavors I’d tasted in Puerto Rico and at local Cuban restaurants. What I found instead was some of […]

My Favorite Eats of 2015

TweetThis year involved over 120 days of travel in 8 states and I didn’t visit as many countries as last year, but learned more about the types of food found throughout the south. It’s so much more than fried chicken! Some of my stomach issues have been resolved since last year and I’ve become […]

Exploring Soho with Eating London

Tweet Whoever says that British food isn’t good, and is heavy and unhealthy, isn’t eating the right dishes.

Traveling with Food Sensitivities

Tweet For the past year, I’ve been nearly completely dairy free. I’d heard that eliminating it from my diet could help with my eczema, which has grown worse over the last two years, especially made worse by weather, stress and other factors. I first noticed the flare ups in Australia and they came up again […]

My Go To NYC Restaurants

Tweet If there’s one American city I’ve been to more than any other (that I haven’t lived in), it’s probably New York City. In the last few years, I’ve gone every six months and have my own little home in Hell’s Kitchen, particularly the few blocks between my hotel and the Javits Center. One of […]

My Favorite Eats of 2014

TweetI’ve been to five countries and countless cities this year, eating my way through the best food as I went. I think with my stomach at all times and when you flip through the photos from my trip, it shows. Since giving up dairy last November, I’ve had more limited options than I did in […]

My Favorite Atlanta Restaurants

Tweet Inspired by the recent post of my friend Lisa at LL World Tour on her favorite Chicago eats, I’ve compiled a long list of my favorite places to eat in my hometown of Atlanta. I still find this city to be an under-the-radar destination for most people and when I was working on my […]
