If you’ve been following along on Instagram or Facebook, you haven’t missed a beat. But if you look for the blogs, it’s been a minute. I haven’t found much time or motivation over the summer to keep up with the blog. The last few months I’ve been enjoying the food instead of writing about, but…

When Did “Brunching” Become A Verb?
At some point, what was once a word to describe a meal that combined breakfast and lunch, became a verb used across twenty-something’s everywhere to describe an afternoon of indulging in comfort food and day drinking. Although I’d hate to admit the term brunching is part of my vernacular, I am quite fond of the…
Feeling Fancy at Yono’s
There really is no such thing as normal. But dining at Yono’s is certainly an experience far grander than just a “normal” night out. It is without a doubt fine dining, where your water glass is never empty and your utensils are changed out with every course. But what makes a dinner at Yono’s truly…
Upstate Meets Charlotte
Brunch & beer were pretty much staples during my recent visit to Charlotte, North Carolina. A city rapidly growing, with construction going on in every neighborhood, Charlotte is packed full of transplanted young twenty-somethings and bustling breweries. I guess you could say I fit right in.

There are hundreds of restaurants within decent driving distance from wherever I am at any given time. I mean of course that the options are plentiful, whether I am at work, home, or out and about. Despite my lengthy list of restaurants to visit, and my relatively laid back palate, even I succumb to the…

With every adventure I tried something new and as the year comes to an end I decided to take a look at the tastiest, and…

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…
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…
