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…
A Winter Recap
The past few months have been busy. The weeks fly by and the weekends go by even faster. I suppose that means I’m doing something right. I make it a goal to make the most of my time, and although that sometimes means binge watching Shameless on the couch for hours on end, it can…
Not NOLA, But Close Enough
When I went to New Orleans in 2016 it was one of the best experiences of my college career. Although this answer might change depending on whose asking, the highlight of the trip was definitely discovering the cajun cuisine, and of course hurricanes on Bourbon Street.
A Food Filled Year In Review
In the last year I’ve done quite a bit. I went to Maine, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Canada. I explored Albany, Schenectady, Troy, Saratoga, the Adirondacks, and Western New York. 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…
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.

Upstate Hits Dallas
Hey Y’all! I know, it’s a cliche way to start a blog about my recent trip to Texas, but after spending just 4 days in the Big D I have already caught myself using Y’all in regular conversation. In case you missed it on my Instagram, I was in Dallas for a few days during…
Taking On Troy: Sunhee’s Farm and Kitchen
When it comes to deciding what’s for dinner, it’s always a challenge. “What are you in the mood for?” “I don’t know, what are you in the mood for?” is the consistent without fail back and forth that I encounter. The pressure is always on me as the resident “foodie” to make the call and…
Try Something New With Korean BBQ
Bop bop bop, bop to the top… OR maybe bop your way on over to some Korean food!
Brunch Round Up: Winter ’17
Brunch is always, always, always a good idea.
Homemade Adventures: Bringing The Garbage Plate To Albany
If you’ve ever been to Rochester, or even within 100 miles of the central New York city, you’ve without a doubt heard of the famous Garbage Plate. Although initially hesitant to trying the mish-mash of greasy cheeseburgers, spicy meat sauce, macaroni salad, and french fries, today I find myself craving a plate quite often. The…
