FOMOOJPB (Fear of Missing Out On Japanese Popcorn Buckets)

So many people I know are visiting Japan lately (possibly due to good flight deals… and cherry blossom season) that, after looking through their many photos, I almost feel like I’ve been there myself. (As I write this, I’m sipping diluted Gatorade out of a cup covered in illustrations of Tokyo, a souvenir that Dana brought back for me.) But the more I see, the more I affirm … Continue reading FOMOOJPB (Fear of Missing Out On Japanese Popcorn Buckets)

Delicious Five, aka March Gladness

Over the weekend, Sam had what seemed to be food poisoning. It was weird, because we’d eaten the exact same thing for dinner the night before. But I was like, hey, dodged a bullet! It turned out that bullet was likely the norovirus, and it hit me two days later. I will not go into detail about that experience, because ultimately this post is going … Continue reading Delicious Five, aka March Gladness

Food-Lessons From Our Honeymoon

When we chose to go to Salzburg and Italy for our honeymoon, we were definitely going with a wander around, follow-the-food approach. In Salzburg we planned to beer garden it up, and in Italy we planned to… I mean, eat Italian food. That’s pretty simple. And it was pretty easy to follow our stomachs as we booked our trip. The agriturismo we stayed at in Tuscany was … Continue reading Food-Lessons From Our Honeymoon

Just Desserts

Even though this blog is no longer “The Daily Binge,” obviously food is still VERY important to me. Therefore I want to tell you guys about our wedding dessert quest, partly because it is a story about realizing less is more. After the wedding, I emailed our vendors to have a mutual thank-you love-fest (I recommend this), and our photographer/cake-topper-maker Tammy said something that stuck with … Continue reading Just Desserts

Remembering 2015

You guys! I kind of forgot to blog for, like… over a year. Okay, I didn’t forget. I’ve just been Instagramming, because Instagram is like tiny little photo-blogs throughout the day. If you’re me. On the vegan-ness front, this is what happened, in case you’re curious (and even if you weren’t): I went to a nutritionist and we agreed I’d eat less salt and sugar … Continue reading Remembering 2015

SNACK TREK: A Stress-Free LA Sunday in Hollywood/Los Feliz

People who know me, know that I function at a high-ish level of stress and worrying. It’s mostly a function of being me, and partly a function of having a job where I’m always on call and have to be really detail-oriented. For me, the weekends are not always a time to kick back, even when work doesn’t beckon. As an aspiring TV writer, it’s … Continue reading SNACK TREK: A Stress-Free LA Sunday in Hollywood/Los Feliz

SNACK TREK: San Francisco (Nov. 2013)

Okay, less blah blah dietary issues and more food pics? Am I right? Sam and I took advantage of the post-Thanksgiving long weekend and flew up to San Francisco to sample their various treats. (For once I wasn’t entirely inspired by the food — I got the whole idea for the trip because I wanted to see the CA Academy of Sciences, and of course … Continue reading SNACK TREK: San Francisco (Nov. 2013)
