Pizza a la MOD(e)

Pizza. Can’t live with it, can’t live without it. When it comes to MOD Pizza, I knew I would be in trouble. Bex seemingly likes every type of topping, condiment, spice, and food (let’s be honest) imaginable. So, when she set eyes on basically what looked like “The Chipotle of Pizza Heaven,” aka MOD Pizza, she…

One of Chinatown’s best restaurants? You don’t SEI!

i don’t really fancy the Chinatown area of Washington, D.C. all too often – not because I don’t like it but more so because I have just never explored it enough. During my first visit to SEI in Chinatown over the summer, I fell in love with the vibe of the place – so warm and sentimental….

Yo, I got the in-cider scoop! Check it out

I’m FALL-ing in love….with this hot ruby cider that is unlike any traditional apple cider I’ve ever had. Hot Ruby has a cranberry base with hints of pineapple and citrus and can be drunk hot or cold. Talk about a wicked good mix for a snazzy autumn cocktail! Originally created by the late Ruby Faye, Hot…

Just a-peach-iating my last summer margarita

Summer? What summer! Man, time flies. Seems like I moved back to D.C. yesterday and yet I just had my three-month review as an account coordinator at Ketchum two days ago. Hard to believe how fast those three months of summer have gone, AND that some of those lovely D.C. rooftop bars will be shutting…

Jack of all Trades, Master of (the Sticky) Bun

There is no doubt that Mama Doser was definitely dubbed “Master of the Cinnamon Bun” by all family members, neighbors, and all her children’s sports teams. Every few weeks throughout my childhood, she would treat the family to a post-church batch of cinnamon buns for Sunday brunch. My brothers and I would really thank God for…

This DC restaurant is totally ra-duck-al, dude!

Nobody even says, “That place is radical, dude” anymore….but hey, I just did. It seemed fitting in order to describe this gorgeous restaurant in Georgetown with a warm, rustic vibe among good company. The culinary team at Blue Duck Tavern is very passionate about sourcing fresh, seasonal ingredients from regional farms to update their menus…

These macaroons will make you go (coco)nuts!

It’s funny because I have always loved the flavor of coconut but for quite sometime as a child, I never liked the texture of coconut flakes. It was kind of similar to my love for orange juice but the utter dislike of pulp. I could just never accept coconut flakes for who they were. Sorry, you little pieces of coconut greatness….

This dish is in-grain-ed in my soul forever…

Nothing beats mixing up the day-to-day peanut butter cinnamon overnight oats with a hearty Saturday brunch full of grains, veggies and spices. After an extremely fun-filled, social and a bit too pricey Fourth of July weekend, Bex was in for some down time this weekend. Laundry, cleaning, cooking, baking and more all made for a mental…
