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 [...]
