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! Google Maps and Yelp are helpful when it comes to finding those local eateries you might not otherwise consider because you’re blinded by the bright and shiny chain and fast food restaurants. I tend to rely on word-of-mouth when it comes...

Wegmans: A Game Changer

We’ve been in our new home for a couple weeks now. The hill/mountain backdrop is beautiful, the people seem friendly and honest, and there are two Friendly’s restaurants within a 5-minute drive of us. Life seems pretty good right now, though I still feel a bit unsettled. I think it’s because that natural comfort that comes with really living somewhere isn’t there yet. I was surprised today when I ventured out grocery shopping (a chore I usually despise) and found an hour’s worth of relaxation and happiness.   Before we moved here, I did my research. I did Google searches, social...

Cooking with the Jersey Shore

Ever have one of those nights where you just don’t want to cook? It’s the last thing you want to do, so you start fantasizing about ordering in from the Thai restaurant around the corner (thank you, Thai Wasabi!) or popping a couple non-existent hot pockets into the microwave. Tonight was going to be one of those nights, but then Jersey Shore stepped in. I used to hate Jersey Shore—the concept behind it, the people, everything. That was before I ever watched it though. The problem was that I believed everyone online who said it was trashy garbage that painted Italian-Americans...

My Weekend Drug of Choice: Coffee

Make that a soy mocha, thank you very much! I know Starbucks is one of those evil, world-dominating corporations you’re supposed to hate, but it’s way too delicious to say “no” to. And since I’ve never really been one to say “no” to food that’s bad for me, I go there about once a week. The First Taste It all started back in 2002. I was working at Iron Hill Brewery while studying at UD. Until that time, I really only abused Coca-Cola, Dr. Pepper, or a shit-ton of candy bars in the afternoon if I was needing a pick-me-up. Or, if time allowed, I...
