Introducing From Anna’s Kitchen

I'm excited to introduce my new project and blog: From Anna's Kitchen. Although marketing is my day job that pays the bills, food is my real passion. It's something I have dedicated much of my time writing about and doing for many years, with some of my first real experiences in the kitchen starting when I was just 5 years old when I would bake with my grandma when she would visit us from Florida. Creating From Anna's Kitchen is a natural evolution of where this blog, my personal blog ... Continue Reading

Farmers Market Finds for May and June

The Memorial Day weekend typically means that some of my favorite times of the year are quickly approaching. It’s not so much the summer weather, which tends to get too hot for my comfort, but the other things that come along with it that I enjoy. I’m talking, of course, of grilling outdoors, going to farmers markets and food festivals, taking trips to the beach to eat lobster rolls... the things that, for shameless food-obsessed people like me, make dealing with the hot weather a little more ...

PA Brewery Tour Weekend

These months are flying by so fast; I can't believe it is already June! I recently celebrated my 6-month anniversary at my now not-so-new job. It has also been nearly a month since I graduated with my MBA and commemorated my 7th anniversary with Steve... wow, wow, wow. Since plans fell through to get away for my graduation weekend on account of the rain, Steve and I decided to take day trips to a few local breweries a few weekends ago, a "bucket list" item that we've had for some time. We ...

Foodie Reservations: The Final Verdict for 2015 and What’s Ahead for 2016

Happy New Year! Hopefully everyone had a safe and exciting night, and is now well on the way to recovering now that it is Sunday and almost back to the work week, sadly. :( Now is about that time when everyone is mulling over their goals for the year. As for me? I've already put a few requisite and cliché things on my list -- those are, lose weight and get back to the gym -- as well as some not-so-cliché things -- finish up my MBA (6 credits this Spring!), learn German and/or French (Duolingo ...

On Pinterest: German Christmas Menu

So, this post is about a week belated... oops. I had it drafted and never posted it in time. I've been on a German food kick over the last few weeks, which I think towards the beginning of December when Steve and I went to New York to see the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree. We ventured over to Reichenbach Hall for dinner, a place we found during one of our last trips. If you've never been there, you feel like you're stepping into an Oktoberfest celebration when you enter the restaurant. Blue ... Continue Reading
