How my Full-Time Job Affected my Love for Food. Good Food.

When I first started my full-time job at a corporate company in the concrete jungle of midtown Manhattan I tried my hardest to keep up my “foodstagram” @letsgababoutfood. I promised myself that every meal at my desk didn’t have to be boring. I relied on one of my favorite iPhone apps Postmates. I ordered the…

St. Louis Sundays: BRUNCH

Brunch should be offered everyday, right?  Southwest Diner  Every Tuesday, since class always started at 1pm, I would make sure to go to Southwest Diner (located so fittingly on Southwest Ave). I have to be honest, I have never been open minded about their menu. I order the same thing every time and that is because…

What to Send Your Best Friend

Ever sit at your computer for hours wondering what to send your best friend for his/her birthday, a tough break up, accepting a job offer, a school acceptance or really any other reason? I’d like to take the time to gab about it because, lets be honest, Baked by Melissa is getting old. Not exciting,…

NYC trends: Momofuku

Fun Fact: there is no dictionary definition of Momofuku, so we can disregard the name as meaning anything important and instead we can focus on the food. Momofuku is best known around the nation for their Milk Bar , but I’d rather save the best for last so lets talk about their other restaurants. Last summer I decided to…

St.Louis Sundays: Two New Notable Restaurants

Reeds American Table Reeds American Table is currently open for dinner, but they plan to open for Brunch in early April. Yes brunch! (my favorite meal)! Reeds American Table is located right off of S Big Bend on Manchester road (it used to be Home Kitchen and Wine bar). Although new, the restaurant is already so…

Did she actually eat that?

In short the answer is: No The #eeeeeats is filled with pictures of the most caloric, sugary, overwhelmingly enticing food pictures. Each picture is, undeniably, mouthwatering. Foodporn, if you will. But then we have to step back and ask… did someone ACTUALLY eat that?! No way that the bagel filled with mounds of peanut butter, bananas…

St.Louis Sundays- BBQ

Meet you in St. Louis you say? Why? Answer: BBQ FOOD! The mid-west has a reputation of being “the middle of no where.” St. Louis, more specifically, is rarely talked about besides for “Ferguson” or “the floods;” two events that are not indicative of how much St. Louis really has to offer. The food in St….

Sadelle’s vs. Russ & Daughters

Who does bagels and lox better Sadelle’s or Russ & Daughters? Did you know: Bagels were introduced to America in 1946 (later than I expected, poor people pre-1946…didn’t know what they were missing). Surprisingly, Bagels were introduced by a family in Larchmont NY, not New York City, the bagel capital of the world. While the bagel wasn’t introduced until the…

You’re so Vain

Levain cookies: Cookie or scone? Why are people so obsessed with taking pictures of the chocolate chip walnut cookie and nothing else? Levain has A LOT to offer and a lot to be “vain” about.
