New Orleans always finds a way to charm me. Whether it’s with the food…Blackened Ahi Tuna Salad and french fries at Royal Street Deli.…the drinks…
If you’ve followed along my blog for any length of time, you’ve probably noticed that what started out as a blog about food and travel turned into a blog about my career change. Food and travel are big passions of mine, but so was getting out of dentistry. When I started writing about my career … More Debauchery in New Orleans
I got an email from a friend yesterday with this link about a few restaurant closings on Pearl Street in Denver. I had recently heard that Pearl Street Grill and OTOTO were closing. This is big local gossip, as it is one of the most happening neighborhoods in the city. As I read the title … More What’s Happening on Pearl Street?
There are 2 types of people in this world: those who insist they can’t have the same type of food 2 meals in a row, 2 days in a row, or even twice a week; and those who can eat the same thing over and over, day after day. If you’re in one camp, it’s … More I’ll Have the Vaca Frita Please… Again

It’s almost like being in high school again. There are moments in which you rate your self-worth on how many … More My Photo Debut in National Geographic Traveler Magazine
One thing about me is that I happen to be a foodie. I love food. I love to eat it. I love to talk about it. I love to cook it. I love to look at it. I love to take pictures of it, and I love to look at pictures of it. There is … More This Foodie’s Sacrifice for More Vieques Beach Time

Then packed the car and headed to town for breakfast. It would have been more convenient to cook breakfast in the condo, but it wasn’t appealing … More Breakfast in Vieques
While I’m on the topic of New Orleans traditions, I must include one that many people can’t live without. Cafe du Monde When the line gets too long, get your beignets to go.It’s been so many years that I’ve dined in for beignets, but I suspect they are better eaten in-house.
