In early April, Rachel & Fam visited the west coast, where they generously included me in a birthday celebration-palooza in Napa, California. Essentially the weekend was a marathon … Continue reading Weekend in the Weed Van

Fiori’s Pizzaria

Hello and TGI🍕F! Today we descended upon Brookline to visit the ever popular Fiori's Pizzaria. Even though they don't know how spell (pretty sure pizzeria isn't supposed to have an 'a'), they make damned good pizza. Not to get ahead of myself, but I think they have my favorite slice this far into the quest. … Continue reading Fiori’s Pizzaria

But really, this is a healthy dish that everyone will love - it's really high in protein/low in carbs and sugars which is always a bonus.

But, First Watch was able to cure my issues without making me feel terrible (plus a few unhealthy sides b/c I needed it). ~~~ Their motto is: 'Yeah, it's fresh' and they aren't lying.

DeMore’s Pizzeria

Hello and happy TGI🍕F! Now I don't listen to the radio (its 2017 and I stream like everybody else), but 100.7 Star claims DeMore's Pizzeria has the best pizza in Pittsburgh. Thus, I traveled to Millvale for two reasons: 1.) to investigate the radio's bold proclamation, and 2.) DeMore's gave us a free pie in exchange for … Continue reading DeMore’s Pizzeria

Colony Cafe

Wine? Coffee? Cats?? Colony Cafe has it all! Now, I will say that I didn't have anything to eat, so there's not much to add to this post.

German Rouladen

In English, Rouladen means rolls; so these are basically beef rolls, what sounds better than that? Here's a little background for ya - since my grandparents came from Germany, I like to learn as many of our old family recipes as possible (s/o to my Oma for this gem). Bonus: it's fairly easy, yet so … Continue reading German Rouladen
