Cookbooks FTW

Now this is going to sound extremely millennial of me but I’ve never understood buying a cookbook when you can simply Google whatever recipe it is you’re interested in making, for FREE. Not to mention there’s just no way you’re going to make every recipe in that book, what a waste, right? Wrong. For my…

Bacon & Radish “Salad”

When a friend came over for dinner and left some leftover radishes I wanted to experiment with an interesting dish. I don’t usually buy radishes and wondered, how could I really make the vegetable pop. I also, happen to be extremely over eating scrambled eggs for breakfast when it hit me. Bacon.

1 Day in Paris (or more…)

There’s an abundance of things to see and do in Paris, and chances are if you have a day to spend you’ll be more worried about how to fit it all in, then what to do. You can spend the day (or 5!) visiting museums. Or you could shop all day, and literally spend every…

Waiting in such a beautiful location (and the free rose) makes it very do-able though. Looking right on a tiny bay beside…
