Foodie Travels: Wahlburgers!

Wahlburgers; Hingham MA One of my favorite things to do in my free time is watch all types of reality tv and I am not afraid to admit it!  While channel surfing one weekend I discovered Wahlburgers, a show about the Wahlbergs' attempt to start a burger chain with their brother who is a chef.   Now as far as reality tv show goes, this show is probably scripted, but I love this show!  I think what keeps me watching is the fact that the Wahlberg family and their bond are truly what the show is about.  So rather than going for [...]

Foodie Travels: Brunch and Lunch in Boston

After indulging in so much sugar during our cupcake tour we asked the hotel concierge for light lunch suggestions.  The concierge suggested Stephanie's on Newbury Street which was thankfully walking distance.  I love a walkable city, my hometown unfortunately is not. We made the scenic walk to Stephanie's with me stopping for pictures at every block.  We went for a table on the large patio allowing me to continue taking in the city and to people watch.  I did not get a chance to venture inside so I cannot speak for the set up in the restaurant. One of the [...]

Foodie Travels: Rhode Island

The Elms My first day in New England was spent wandering around Rhode Island.  For it to be the smallest state, they really seem to have a lot to offer tourists.  Since this is a food blog, let me start with that! For dinner we went to Federal Hill in Providence, Rhode Island which is their Little Italy.  It's a pretty historic area. Federal Hill in Providence. Can a local please explain the pineapples?? We had dinner at Camille's, an Italian restaurant that has been around for a 100 years. My sister is forever pushing to me [...]

Foodie Travels: Boston Cupcake Crawl

Can I just say I love Boston! Well Boston in the summer because me and 20 feet of snow would not get along.  Boston is such a beautiful historic city and history will win me over any day.  I spent last weekend in New England, so be prepared for several posts! One of my favorite things to do when I travel is to try out the cities local cupcakeries.  In Boston, I took it up a notch by going on a cupcake crawl through Boston. Our tour met up at South End Buttery, a bakery/ cafe type restaurant.  There our [...]

Buc-ee’s A Texas Treasure

On the drive to Austin from Houston one of my must stops is to Buc-ee's right off of 71 highway in Bastrop, Texas.  Do not for a second make the mistake of thinking that this place is JUST a convenience store.    First of it is bigger than most convenience stores, because truly everything is bigger in Texas.  With it's larger size, Buc-ee's is able to go beyond typical convenience store fare of chips and drinks and include a variety of other food options. They have fudge! What store do you know with fudge that they even let you sample? [...]

Traveling Foodie: Austin, Texas

I was in Austin for one night only (* in my Dreamgirls voice*) for an Allen Stone concert. I could not miss the opportunity to indulge in some good Austin treats. Austin is definitely a foodie town. In recent years several Austin imports have made their way to Houston and done really well, like Tiff’s treats, Whole Foods and Torchy’s Tacos. On this visit I stopped at Hopdoddy Burger Place a burger place in Austin that my bestie kept raving about. Inside of HopDoddy. Overall I liked HopDoddy, but I honestly do not like how their ordering process and seating [...]

Dallas Food Trucks

I am definitely a fan of the food truck trend.  The last few times I visited family in Dallas, I noticed the food truck festival at Floyd Warren Park. Apparently they park there weekly. On my most recent visit I got to visit the park and see what the Dallas Food trucks are all about ( I will post on Houston food trucks eventually) Two things that a long line at a food truck tells me, a) it’s popular because people are flocking b) the food is likely fresh because the line isn’t moving quickly enough to keep it short. [...]

Foodie Travels: New Orleans

I made my first trip to New Orleans earlier this spring for a work conference. It is kind of surprising that it was my first trip considering that Nawlins combines two of my favorite things, History and Food! Remember I was there for a work event, so put aside the liquor aspect of New Orleans for a moment. Here are the food places I got to try during my short visit for a conference. I plan to go back soon just to indulge in more food, history and perhaps the Bourbon Street side of things. Café Du Monde Obligatory stop [...]
