My perfect day in Oman would include countless dates with coffee, but there is just so much more on the food and drink menu to explore. Let me take you for a little sensory adventure all about Omani gastronomy.
Earlier this year, I was a Malaysia Kitchen Blogger Ambassador. This is my round-up of posts from the experience, plus a little bit extra here and there. If you have no idea what Malaysian food is like, do click on!
It’s kind of sad, but when it comes to my America trip, all I want to talk about is the food. I mean, I had 3 years to make up for; all my favorites were on the list. And my mom, well don’t even get me started. She was bringing home all the things… Read more
Day 112: Would you eat something with "poo" in the name?
Does anyone else reading this find as much joy as me in just walking through foreign grocery stores? I know Cailin mentioned in a comment on my calorie counting post that the foreign labels aren’t very helpful for those tracking their daily intake, but it is for that same… Read more

For most nights in the kitchen, I let Pat go at it because — not only is he a great cook but — he likes it. Because of him, I get delicious curries, delectable meat pies, yummy stir-fries and pesto pastas. When it comes to things like burgers, however, I have to take charge.

I love McDonald’s, and I love eating … Read more
Day 4 of the year’s 365 day photo project has come and gone, and it is safe to say there will probably be a ton of food and drink posts to come this year. Today’s post is inspired by the meat pie dinner party we had at our place with a couple of Pat’s… Read more
