Pizza makes me think that anything is possible.

Though I don’t pigeon-hole myself into saying that I’m a food critic/food blogger, to write about the Capital Region obviously involves writing about food in the area (plus, I really just enjoy eating). So when The Restaurant at the Pointe (1 Bell Tower Dr, Watervliet) […]

DINING OUT FOR LIFE 2016!

DINING OUT FOR LIFE 2016!

You may have seen the posters starting to go up, you may have seen posters showing up at your favorite restaurants and this year, I’m going to be an ambassador! If you dine out for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner at any of the 70 participating restaurants […]

I’m counting down the days to this delicious anniversary dinner for Adirondack Winery at the Fort William Henry. April 16th from 6:00PM-9:00PM, starting with a cheese and cracker cocktail hour followed by a 5 course seated dinner. All for just $70!  You also have the […]

Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.

Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.

Usually around this time, you’d find me at Studio 4 Hot Yoga and Pilates (151 Lafayette St, Schenectady) getting my butt handed to me by Holly in Barre class but sadly, I’ve had the cold that never ends and haven’t been able to go for […]

Cooking is not difficult. Everyone has taste, even if they don’t realize it. Even if you’re not a great chef, there’s nothing to stop you understanding the difference between what tastes good and what doesn’t.”

I love to cook. It’s one of those things that no matter how much I do it, I always learn something new or some new trick to make it easier. I was so excited to have the opportunity to try the Learning Center at the Healthy […]

“All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast”

“All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast”

EDIT: Creo is now closed. There’s something about brunch that’s completely different from any other meal. Sure, you could argue that brunch is a mix of breakfast and lunch but it really isn’t. It’s a meal of magic and deliciousness that not only makes it […]

Edit: Mastroianni Bros. is now closed. I’m from Schenectady and I would love to see anyone who would fight the fact that Schenectady has the best Italian food in the Capital Region. It’s just that- a fact. What goes best with Italian food? Italian bread. […]

“The Wright brothers flew right through the smoke screen of impossibility.”

I’ve had a Facebook page for my blog for a while but I just started really working on my Instagram page a little bit more (I find it more fun anyway). I love connecting with local businesses and following what they’re doing and in doing […]

“Part of the secret of a success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside”

“Part of the secret of a success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside”

Every so often I tend to find myself getting backed up with things to write about. I enjoy writing about food and I really enjoy writing about experiences and things to do but sometimes I find great products but they get lost because I can’t […]

“Only the pure in heart can make a good soup”

As much as we don’t want to think about it, it’s inevitable, Winter is coming (and not the Game of Thrones kind). What we have to do is think about the positive: Pumpkin spice all the things, hot chocolate, sweatshirts, and soup. I love soup […]
