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)

SNACK TREK: LAX Food-Hop — PROUD BIRD & ENCOUNTER

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

SNACK TREK: Where in the World Have I Been?

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?

Snack Trek: BRIAN’S SHAVE ICE (West LA)

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)

A Tale of Two Pizzas (800 DEGREES & PIZZA REV)

As I’ve mentioned, I’ve been eating a lot of pizza lately. One of my favorite trends is custom pizza places. And today I’m going to talk about TWO of them — 800 Degrees (in Westwood) and Pizza Rev (in Studio City). Chronologically, I visited 800 Degrees first. It’s a very buzz-y place in LA right now. Sam and I happened to be in Westwood for … Continue reading A Tale of Two Pizzas (800 DEGREES & PIZZA REV)

Snack Trek: BLOCKHEADS SHAVERY CO. (West LA)

First of all, I would just like to state that WordPress seems to have changed since the last time I was here. I can’t figure out how to resize the pictures, or link to URLs. So I’m pulling them to my desktop and uploading them? Whatever, technical blah blah. But it feels like WordPress is different every time I get around to blogging. Annoying. I … Continue reading Snack Trek: BLOCKHEADS SHAVERY CO. (West LA)

Snack Trek: Chicken Soup for the Blogger’s Soul (Brent’s Deli)

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it here, but I’m a big fan of the reality show Long Island Medium. I don’t know if I believe in a religious view of the afterlife, but when you watch Teresa read people (if it’s real! please be real!) it’s definitely like — holy crap, very uncanny, I’m pretty sure she’s talking to this guy’s dead brother. And the … Continue reading Snack Trek: Chicken Soup for the Blogger’s Soul (Brent’s Deli)
