Not Just A Regular Foodie Summer!

Woah! All of the sudden it’s mid-August when just a moment ago it was March! HUH? *Recently on Dan Likes To Eat* So last time I posted was in March… Shortly after that life got a bit hectic and I found myself all over the country for work… and so… food. 😀 I never intended to become…

Grocery Shopping – aka, Your Worst Nightmare

How often do you go grocery shopping and feel confident about your eating plans for the next few days? What are the hardest things about shopping for you? Finding things at the right ripeness (Avocados!)? Thinking of everything ahead of time? Dealing with the people? Gambling on how much you’ll be able to carry up…

NYC Food Frenzy Weekend #1

Great weekend of eating food from all over NYC with my college roommate! We had Filipino, Italian… and a whole bunch of other stuff!
