Daily Dozen Doughnut Company

November 3, 2008

You know how you always want to eat six doughnuts but you don’t because that would be greedy and you’d end up looking like Augustus Gloop? Well there’s a little stall in Pike Place Market called the Daily Dozen Doughnut Company that only allows you to buy their mini freshly fried treats in increments of […]

Serious Pie

October 31, 2008

I’m currently in the airport waiting for our red eye back to Boston and feeling literally stuffed to the gills from days and days of fabulous food, coffee, and booze. In fact, CK and I just had our last Seattle dinner at Serious Pie which ended up being one of the places we deemed fabulous […]

The Wicked Whoopies Store

September 19, 2008

I’ve mentioned it before, but when I go home to Maine there are two things I have to eat while I’m there and they have absolutely nothing to do with lobster or blueberries. I always make a point to have an Italian Sandwich from Sam’s Italian Sandwich Shop, and I also have to have a […]

August 14, 2008

The brilliant Bodega Party in a Box kit arrived today. The Neighbors Project seriously out did themselves in the categories of overall functionality and cuteness.

Apparently there are two “warring factions” vying […]

June 6, 2008

My friend Melissa and I have a long running complaint about the state of walkable lunch spots near our office. While the hands down favorite is definitely Brown Sugar Cafe, a girl cannot survive on Masaman Curry alone (as much as we might like to). So for the most part I bring my lunch and […]

The Sausage Guy

April 30, 2008

I went to my first Red Sox game last night with CK and his co-workers. No, not of the season. This was my first Fenway Park experience ever! Yes, I’ve lived here for three years now and I’d never been to a game. And boy did I live it up. I ate and drank everything […]

Sam’s Italian Sandwich Shop

October 15, 2007

There are some things about living in Maine that I will always miss: a complete lack of traffic, living 20 minutes from the outlets in Freeport, and Ham Italians from Sam’s Italian Sandwich Shop. Like many people born in Maine I grew up eating these tasty sandwiches. Almost every beach trip from my childhood and […]
