M Wells Steakhouse

I spent last weekend visiting friends in New York. I love that city so much and for the first time in a long time, it felt like a vacation. I also love eating my way around New York and had a true adventure meeting a dear friend for drinks and dinner at M Wells Steakhouse…

Apple Galette with Ginger

Whenever I go out of town for any length of time, I like to get rid of any perishable foods I have laying around.  No one likes to come home to moldy bread!   I did have a few apples sitting on the counter that has seen better days and I thought about tossing them out…

Columbia Room

I met up with an old friend last night for drinks.  It was a long overdue hangout.  He’s a huge fan of rooftop bars and put the onus on me to find a spot.  Such pressure!  I really couldn’t think of anything that was nearby, so we started looking at the bar map on yelp…

Hothouse Cucumber Salad with Dill

A few weeks ago, I stopped by Au Bon Pain for a little nosh on my way back to the office.  My eyes were drawn to the “bento” style box of hummus, cucumber,almond/cashew mix, and grapes.  It’s was perfect and surprisingly filling, but a little pricey for a daily habit.  So I decided to make my…

Provision 14

Ah, brunch time again. One of the little pleasures in life that I’m able to take advantage of while Miles is away for the summer.  I met up with a friend from my last job and prepared myself for an afternoon of eating at Provision 14. What first attracted me to Provision 14 was the…

Kix Treats with Bacon

Whenever I stumble upon a recipe like this, I’m reminded of old, old Reese’s peanut butter cup commercials where there are two people; one with a jar of peanut butter and one with a chocolate bar.  The guy with the chocolate bar trips and his bar falls into the jar of peanut butter and then…

The Vin Bin

Ah, who knew you could have the best of both worlds, wine, and a great sandwich?  The Vin Bin knew!  A friend suggested that we try out this little gem of a place in Marlborough.  I decided to go with a pressed Rueben sandwich and walked around looking wine while I waited.  Another great perk…

Pizza Waffle

I think I should file this pizza waffle recipe under college eats.  I have a friend who teases me that when Miles goes away I eat like a college student.  It’s true!  I will fully admit to having creamed spinach with tortilla chips for dinner last night.  It totally tasted like spinach dip! But back…

DGBG

A couple of weeks ago my company hosted an event for Women in Tech. Assisting clients with logistics for various events is just one of the many hats I wear. I have to say, this is one aspect of my job that I really enjoy. I love getting to meet new people from various industries. As…

Confetti Sugar Cookies

  I’m so into sprinkles right now!  They’re festive and fun, and guaranteed to put a smile on your face.  Well, at least my face. 🙂   Every summer when Miles leaves to spend his time off from school with his dad, I miss him terribly.  Actually, I go back and forth from “mom goes…

Friday Things

I woke up this morning wanting something sweet and thought about cupcakes and doughnuts. This is my first week back at work, and it’s great, but still slow going.  It’s going to be interesting using the stairs today! It’s been incredibly hot in the Capitol this week, and in addition to water, I think this tequila…

Grandville Moore’s

Granville Moore’s is an earthy, cozy dark mussels and Belgian beer spot on H Street.  So it’s only natural that my friend and I went there for fried food.  My friend’s a vegetarian and I don’t like mussels, but I do love frites with mayo! We ordered a basket of frites with horseradish mayo and…
