The Coach Stop Restaurant East Hartland, CT Review

  My family does a lot of eating when we get together, and that usually means a ton of cooking. But for our most recent get-together, we decided to take a break from the time in the kitchen and go out to dinner at The Coach Stop Restaurant in East Hartland, CT. Although it was […]

The Weekender: Wacky Onions, Whiskers, & Workout Gear

Did you know Saturday was International Cat Day? I love any excuse to celebrate my adorable fur babies, so I made sure to spoil them twice as much. That’s my job. I have a lot of jobs, come to think of it: my day job, my evening job at the gym, and let’s not forget: […]

Plan B Burgers – Simsbury, CT

Earlier in the week, I told you about my first trip ever to Connecticut and one of the great restaurants I got to try. I love an excuse to get to new places and try new food, but picking the restaurant is always a production. When I’m on a trip, I know I only get […]

Tunxis Grill – Windsor, CT

This weekend marked my first trip ever to Connecticut. I had no clue what to expect food-wise, but I knew I wanted to discover something really good. For me, that’s half the fun of traveling. Heck, food is at least 90% of the fun of traveling. My family and I scoured nearby restaurants on Google […]

Triple Review: Swifty’s, The Garden Grille, & Cafe Del Buono

I spent my weekend pigging out in honor of my commencement. My family came up for the big day, which meant we had to celebrate with food. Admittedly, the feasting started off a bit rocky when one of the events I went to didn’t offer anything vegetarian. But that just meant I got to grab […]

The Weekender: Pajamas, Furry Friends, & Birthdays

Thank you for being patient with me the last week while posts were a little spotty. I was dealing with a death in the family, which happens to send your everyday life into chaos – as if such a time isn’t hard enough as is. But like I promised, I am getting back into our […]

Frostop & Tudor’s Biscuit World – Southern Staples

I have been dying to take y’all on a trip to two classic West Virginia restaurants since I went to visit my parents last month. I’ve driven past both of them on many occasions during past visits, each time saying that I had to go. Well, I finally got to check ’em out, and now […]

The Weekender: Movember & More Wedding Pics

Right now, I’m hanging out in a hotel in West Chester, PA. My boyfriend went for Les Mills BodyPump certification this weekend, so I’m here for support on this little road trip. I got to trek through where I used to live in Allentown on my way here, which was fun. Are any of y’all […]

Rosie’s Trattoria – Randolph, NJ

For my birthday dinner a few weeks ago, I was quite set on going to my favorite restaurant of all-time, Mama’s Restaurant in Hackettstown, NJ. However, Sister Cookie told me about a restaurant she recently tried with Eggplant Rollantini she claimed could rival Mama’s. Given that Mama’s Eggplant Rollantini is my favorite restaurant dish of […]

The Weekender: Recapping My 21st Birthday

It’s safe to say my 21st birthday was my best ever. I got to spend it with my favorite people and eat loads of good food; there’s really nothing more I could ask for. But before we get elbow-deep in birthday cake, why don’t we take a look back at what we ate this week? […]
