Happy Wednesday, all!  Today, I’m super excited to share some snaps from a recent weekend trip to Scottsdale and Sedona.  This part of the country is  just amazing – red rocks galore, saguaros towering over agave plants, and 120 degree weather (as I’ve told everyone who gasped – “But it’s a dry heat!”).  I  completed some fantastic hikes and relaxed a ton at our home base resort.  I think the pictures speak for themselves though – check it out!

Don’t have much to complain about when was the view from our balcony at The Westin Kierland!  As a loyal Starwood Preferred Guest member, we used points to pay for this room. Yay! Continue Reading

London 2013-35

Happy Thursday, Noshers!  In the second installment of my super-short series of posts about my Super Short Trip to London, I’m excited to share my visit to Neal’s Yard Dairy with all of you.  As I’m sure most of you know by now, cheese is my all-time favorite food – I have never met a cheese I didn’t like, and I’d happily eat cheese every day if I could do so without consequence!  So when this store was recommended to me as a must-visit during my trip, I knew I had to check it out.

Eating Out

London 2013-45

Happy Thursday, Noshers!  Today I’m happy to share the first of my series of posts about my SSTTL (Super Short Trip to London)!  I was in London for work a few weeks ago, and it was SO fun and delicious.  I wish my I could have stayed longer!  Today’s post is about one of my favorite stops during my stay – a trip to Borough Market.  I made sure to go on a Saturday, when the full market was open from 8am – 5pm, and boy was it bustling!

I had so much fun taking photos of all of the lovely stands and tables.   Regrettably I didn’t have the stomach space to try it all, but that just means I’ll have to make a return visit, right? For the most part, I’ll let the photos speak for themselves: Continue Reading

Live from Singapore: Teh Tarik

Eating Out

Greetings from Singapore!  After an almost 24-hour flight (including a special Christmas menu, thank you Singapore Airlines!), I’m here!  I just wanted to share this video of one of my favorite beverages here – teh tarik.  Teh Tarik translates into “pulled tea,” and from this video you’ll see how this yummy tea got its name:

Stay tuned for more!

Have you heard of teh tarik before?
