Blackberry Mint Spritzer

This week was a two dinners in one night kind of week. Literally. Pad Thai at 5:30pm and then 3 amazingly delicious pizzas (split between 9 of us) around 9pm on a Wednesday night. I mean, my co-workers and I were hanging out in North Beach and since that neighborhood is the home of Little Italy, we had to check out Tony’s Pizza. I don’t regret a thing. And yeah, my co-workers love food as much as I do!  It’s awesome. This week I watched the Great Gatsby! That soundtrack is…wack. I mean it’s good but weird. Jay-Z produced it?

Strawberry, Avocado, and Mango Salad

What a week! From having my last two posts’ pictures featured on Foodgawker (and one on Tastespotting!), to having the honor of working with two great ladies from The Frugal Flambe and The Paleo Project in executing a 3-tiered guest post on all of our blogs, to being featured on the Foodbuzz’s Daily Top 9 two days ago, I am ecstatic! That may not seem like much to some, but for me, it’s beyond what I’ve ever imagined. Welcome, new readers! I hope you will enjoy this blog. And to the devoted readers that have been following me throughout these past six months, I cannot be more grateful that you have put up with my random thoughts and endless rants about life and food. When I started this blog on January 1st this year, I never expected that anyone more than my close friends and family would read it. And I was [Continue Reading…]
