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 ...

Foodie Resolutions for 2015: Revisited

Now that the year is just about over (wow, isn't that hard to believe...), it seems like an appropriate time to revisit my foodie resolutions for 2015 list that I posted back in January to see how I did.

Valentine’s Day Eats: Chocolate Covered Strawberries, Whisky Cocktails & More

On Pinterest: Bitters and Cordials

This sounds foolish to say now, but when Pinterest first launched I was skeptical to see if it was going to be successful. Mood boards -- collections of images, words, thoughts, colors, and other inspiration -- have been used in creative design (graphic and fashion design, branding...) for quite some time. Social bookmarking sites like Delicious and StumbleUpon already had been around the block. Social giants Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, and a number of other image sharing and microblogging sites ... Continue Reading

Foodie Resolutions for 2015

I came across an article on MSN Food & Drink that outlines new things that foodies should try to do in the new year. There are a whopping 51 things listed and, as it turns out, I have already accomplished a lot of them! Go me! There is always room to do better, though, so here is what jumped out at me. The first thing on the list, clean-out and reorganize the fridge, seems like simple food safety and common sense to me. Nobody wants old food sitting around for eons, stinking up everything else. ...
