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
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
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)
Hello! As usual — sorry that I haven’t been blogging with great frequency. Rest assured that I am still eating, and documenting. I just don’t seem to stick the landing. Speaking of landings — today’s post is about planes. Or — it’s about places where you can eat while you watch the planes land at LAX. (You can also eat Thai food while watching planes … Continue reading SNACK TREK: LAX Food-Hop — PROUD BIRD & ENCOUNTER
I first tried zaatar (there are various ways to spell it and apostrophes to stick in there, but I’m doing it my way) when I was hiking in Israel, during Birthright. As I recall, a Druze man sold me a zaatar-covered piece of flatbread (maybe laffa?). I ate it as we walked past a water-powered mill, thinking, “This is a new flavor. Hmm.” Once you … Continue reading SNACK TREK: The Hunt for Zaatar
Would you believe Budapest? I was there for two weeks in March for work, and it sort of threw a wrench into my blogging. Well, a bunch of stuff threw a wrench into my blogging, but whatever — I’m back. And I want to share some food pics with you, obvs. (Click on any pic to see it bigger.) Pretty much all of the Hungarian … Continue reading SNACK TREK: Where in the World Have I Been?
Today I couldn’t stop thinking about wanting to try Brian’s Shave Ice, which is down the street from yesterday’s Blockheads trek. I kept hinting to Sam that driving down the 405 to get Hawaiian shave ice would make today feel like a real day off — it would be an adventure, and it would be really Presidents Day appropriate because Obama is from Hawaii. Eventually, … Continue reading Snack Trek: BRIAN’S SHAVE ICE (West LA)
