M3 – May

This month in M3 (Mercato’s Meatball of the Month), they decided to make a pepperoni pizza ball with a zesty pizza sauce - sounds like some good drunk eats to me. My pizza balls were placed over a tomato risotto because I thought that would work really well with the sauce. However, I was not entirely thrilled … Continue reading M3 – May

Giovanni’s

Hello and happy TGI🍕F. This weeks pizza destination was Giovanni's on 6th Ave in downtown Veridian - er, Pittsburgh rather. CHEESE: Giovanni's cheese was mediocre. There wasn't much to it, but it didn't take away from the slice. Quite disappointing to say, as I feel the past few pizza joints have had the same do-nothing-for-the-slice cheese. DOUGH: … Continue reading Giovanni’s

Yinzer Eats in Boston

I got the pleasure of visiting Teddy's hometown recently - Boston. I can see why he loves the city, but still don't get why he loves their sports since he now lives in the real City of Champyinz. Jokes aside, you have to go to Boston if you've never been. There's so many different neighborhoods … Continue reading Yinzer Eats in Boston

M3 – April

This month in M3 (Mercato’s Meatball of the Month), they took a classic Italian dish and turned it into a ball. They went with a veal marsala ball - and I decided to put it over spätzle, as suggested by my waiter. This was a good take on the dish - the ball itself had a delicious … Continue reading M3 – April

Weekend in the Weed Van

Hello Yinzer Eats readers! It's meee! Clarice. I'm taking over for Rachel indefinitely and this blog now belongs to me. ... Just kidding. Sorta. But maybe someday. I'll keep you posted. 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

Pistachio Crusted Chicken

This recipe was inspired by a bag of pistachios I've had in my pantry and some chicken that needed to be cooked - touching, I know. 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. What you'll need: … Continue reading Pistachio Crusted Chicken

First Watch

Now, when I'm hungover, I'm normally screaming for chicken fingers, a burger, some Kraft, etc. around 10 am. 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. I got the Avocado … Continue reading First Watch

Glass Slipper Ball

The Glass Slipper Ball has been held every year in Pittsburgh since 2004. The main goal is to raise money and awareness of women who experience human trafficking, sexual assault, etc. To pair with such a great cause, there is live music, auctions, dancing presentations, lots of vino, and of course, lots of great food... This event … Continue reading Glass Slipper Ball

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
