Where To Eat: Mamma Angela’s in Crofton, MD

If a restaurant is named after a family member, you already know the food is going to be amazing. Definitely check out Mamma Angela’s if you’re ever in Maryland.

Tastebud Worthy Recipe: Coco-Melon Drink

At one of my family get togethers, I was sitting at the table talking to an aunt and we came up with this light and refreshing drink! Who doesn’t love watermelon or coconut juice? I poured a glass of coconut juice into a cup and my aunt had a bowl of watermelon in front of…

I look forward to the holidays for only one thing: food! I have been making this Red Velvet Trifle cake for my holiday get-togethers for a few years now and it is always a hit. I got the recipe from this website and tweaked it a little bit. Follow the recipe, but just the cake part. 1 teaspoon…

Milan, Italy

For someone who loves to travel and travels often, I had the biggest fear of flying overseas. There was just something about flying over water for an extended period of time that scared the shit out of me.  A couple months ago, I decided to suck it up and bought tickets to Italy with my best…

Taste Bud Worthy Recipe: Truffle Pasta

I still remember the moment I tried truffle for the first time.

Fries are not fries unless they are truffle fries! I’ve…

A weekend in the Windy City – Chicago, Illinois

Back in November, I met up with my cousin in Chicago to celebrate her 30th birthday. We had such a wonderful time – just the two of us!

We drove out to Clearwater Beach…

Brooklyn restaurant – St. Anselm

When my boss told me I was approved to go to training in New York City for a week, I was so excited. Not only was I looking forward to be learning geeky computer IT stuff, but I couldn’t wait to try the hundreds of great restaurants just train stops away from me. Everyone is always raving about…

Washington, D.C. – restaurants

After a night of heavy drinking, my friends and I walked around Dupont Circle area in search of some food. We stumbled upon this gem, Ping Pong Dim…
