A Quick & Easy Recap of Blogmas So Far

We’re more than halfway to Christmas and blogmas is in full swing. Have you been keeping up? Here’s a quick recap of all the posts so far. Day 1: Current Coffee Roasters bringing real coffee for real causes to the Capital Region. Day 2: New Albany restaurant The Cuckoo’s Nest serves up the best southern comfort downtown….

Capital Region Spotlight: Albany

You know what they say, you never really know what you’ve got until it’s gone. I never really knew what I had until I left our beloved capital city. But now I am back and can say with confidence that despite the fact that Albany may be small, it’s a great place to live.

Here For The Chips and Salsa

For the first half of my life tomatoes freaked me out. They still do a little bit, but thankfully over time I’ve been able to overcome my aversion, and fully enjoy the wonder of the world that is Mexican food. Pass the chips and salsa and lets take a look at some of the best…

Everyday I’m Noodlin’

There is nothing more pleasing than a large bowl of carbs. Red sauce, white sauce, or even soy sauce, give me some noodles and we are all set.

A Chilly Day For Chili

When the snow started falling in the early afternoon I thought my plans were ruined. But despite the wintry weather, the streets of Schenectady were as full as the bellies of those who were walking them, and as the sun began to set, the 3rd Annual Chili Chowdown was in full swing.

An Ice Cream Love Story

For every bad day or every hot summer afternoon, with magical comforting powers and the ability to make a good day even better, ice cream in every form is a good idea. On this snowy December day lets take a moment to bask in the memories of days spent in the hot sun, with a…

But Is It Doughnut or Donut?

They come in sugar or glazed or chocolate sprinkle, freshly made with a side of apple cider, or even with a scoop of ice cream in between. Technically, it’s spelled doughnut, and it’s one of the most popular pastries out there right now.

Pizza My Heart

There is something special about pizza. It comes in many shapes, sizes, and flavors, making it a nearly universally satisfying meal. Living in New York, even Upstate, means that we’ve been blessed in the pizza department. It’s well known that New York pizza is the best pizza in the world, but we’ve been taught that…

Sweet Treats and Good Eats

Every once in a while a craving for something sweet comes along that just cannot be contained. Most of the time, a piece of chocolate can hold me over, but now and then I am in need of a treat that’s a little bit sweeter.

Under The Sea For Saratoga Restaurant Week

Eating out is not economical. I realize this each and every time I check my bank statement. Yet this expensive hobby of mine is one I will not kick. That being said, I do try to experience restaurants in the cheapest way possible, getting little tastes here and there at food festivals and events like…

Calories Don’t Count On Vacation

Since I created my Instagram and started investing time and energy into blogging, restaurants have become a central component in all of my visits with my friends. My food adventures make for a great time exploring where I live, but an even better time exploring other cities as well. Most recently I went east to…

Capital Region Spotlight: Enjoy Troy

On the East side of the Hudson River sits a city full of life, history, and food. I can’t deny that I once had pre-conceived notions about the City of Troy, often hearing that it was run down and unsafe. Those assumptions were wrong. Because I know I am not alone with the pre-conceived notions,…
