The Best Way to Enjoy NYC Culinary Delights in the Winter

Ten years ago I was freshly graduated from the University of Delaware and ready to take on the world. No more small town living; this girl had her sights set on the big city! And by big city, I don’t mean NYC. I was wide-eyed and optimistic, but not totally out of touch with reality.

The 10 Versatile Ways M&Ms Rule the Candy World

“Liars,” I heard my boyfriend whisper under his breath as we sat on the couch last night. I figured he had to be talking about one of the following: Politicians His superiors at work The Kardashians The weathermen (or women) At least that’s who I usually think of when I hear the word “liars”.

It’s (Global) Taco Time!

One of the first things I do when I move to an area is figure out where the best places to eat are. I’d say that applies to everyone, but I’ve known quite a few people who are more concerned with the best hikes, the best gyms, the best bars, etc. Me? I’m a foodie. Find me the good shit!
