Juice Cleanse: BluePrint

I thought it was time to do a juice cleanse, to jumpstart my Low Carb High Fat Diet. A diet that was INCREDIBLY beneficial for me, for all of 30 days I did successfully.

Zen Palate Ruined My Palate

For years I've been hearing how amazing Zen Palate is for vegetarians. Seeing that my best friend is vegetarian, I even considered taking him for his birthday over the last many years.

Bar Americain: Expensive but Yummy

I had a great time at Bar Americain. The food was delicious - I do love the flavors Bobby Flay puts together. The ambiance and location was perfect for a pre-theater dinner and the service was on point. Having said all that, it is exactly what you would expect from a famous chef's restaurant: overpriced.… Continue reading Bar Americain: Expensive but Yummy

Best Pizza… EVER in Kutna Hora!

Small town. Dark. Gray. Cloudy. Medieval. Cobblestones. Quiet. Secluded. Historic. No English. These are the words that describe the little town of Kutna Hora in Czech Republic. It was quite an interesting January Tuesday when Dad and I ventured off from the capital of Prague to visit the Bohemian town of Kutna Hora. I knew it… Continue reading Best Pizza… EVER in Kutna Hora!

I know, I keep yapping about cupcakes lately. But I just tried a new cupcake recently and it was FABULOUS! In the midst of Pennsylvania in a little town called Newtown, I was introduced to The Caketeria, the store was just closing and we were greeted by two very flaky teenagers (calling it like I see it) who insisted… Continue reading Best Cupcake in Pennsylvania?
