All of that amazing food and potential for adventure was depressingly swept away in a haze of Nyquil […]

On Monday morning I awoke to the official end of summer curled up in a cozy twin bed in CK’s grandparent’s house in Niantic, Connecticut. The air in the bedroom was crisp and cool and I was starving.

In addition to the delightful cinnamon variety I also couldn’t resist the opportunity to try out the bright green mint version as well as the […]

CK and I just dragged ourselves home from the annual brouhaha that is the Harvard Square Mayfair. Along with our good friend Anna, we essentially ate our way through block after block of tempting festive food vendors.
