Allison’s Year of Eating: 2021

This post is a long time coming. I had a lot of ideas for posts last year but lacked the time to write them due to work (I no longer work from home ever..). This originally started as a “Summer of Eating” post, but seeing as it is already winter and 2022, I changed it…

Allison’s January 2022 Reads

My reading goal for 2022 is 30 books. I finished my 5th book in January and decided that was plenty of books for this month. I can’t currently run due a stress fracture in my foot, which is a reason for reading so many books this month. So I am taking the last week of…

My 2021 reads

I began 2021 with a goal of reading 25 books. At the time I thought this was a very ambitious number, because in 2020 I barely read 18. Well, I smashed this goal, completing it August 2021. I finished out the year by reading 35 physical books and listening to 9 audiobooks. I also found…

Allison Visits Utah!

Eat, Drink, and Be Merry- Tomorrow you might be in Utah Quote from a shot glass at the souvenir store Utah was a place that I had mixed feelings about visiting. I knew that it was supposed to be beautiful and that there are mutliple national parks there to visit, but at the same time…

Allison visits the Outer Banks… again!

Last week was my annual family vacation to the Outer Banks and this was my first trip in this semi-post pandemic phase we are experiencing now. It was so weird to be in the Southern United States during this time, because their general attitude towards the pandemic is almost the complete opposite of New England….

Ladies who Drunch: Six \ West

Celebrating a birthday is as good a reason as any to try out a new brunch spot. Over the weekend was my roommate’s birthday, so the three of us ventured all the way to South Boston to try a restaurant we have been talking about for months. They have cute, individual huts that allow each…

Tik Tok’s Tomato Feta Pasta

Over the weekend, I was walking through my local Whole Foods, trying to decide what I wanted to make for dinner. On a whim, I decided to try a recipe I had been seeing all over Tik Tok for a tomato and feta pasta. I wasn’t even sure how much I really liked feta, I…

Allison Makes Shephard’s Pie

This has been one of my favorite meals since I was a child. I have no clue why, but I love it. It is one of my top go-to comfort foods and perfect for fall and the quickly approaching winter. Last week we got 4 inches of snow in Boston, only a few days before…

Allison makes Whipped Coffee

After three or four months of seeing this “whipped coffee” trend on all social media platforms, and months of me saying that’s cool but I don’t think I’ll try it… I have finally fallen victim. I woke up and I placed my mobile coffee order at Starbucks (Venti Iced Blonde Americano, black) and added some…
