Food Porn

For the past month, I have actually managed to cook. Cook REAL food. No TV dinners. No frozen pizzas. I have actually managed to make things I only once dreamed of making.

Key lime cheesecake? Check.
Artichoke Casserole? Check.
Coconut Pancakes?? Triple Check.

As I began my “I will cook all my meals or else” journey, one of my friends suggested that I check out Taste Spotting. When I asked her what it was, she replied with: ” Sarah, it’s totally food porn.”

Taste Spotting is a ” community driven visual potluck.” The description is fitting. I dare you to take a look at it, and tell me you don’t want to make everything and anything that you see pop up. It’s setup like we love typography, but instead of type lovin’, you get a whole lot of foooooooood lovin’.

Here’s what I made this weekend:

New York City Visit

As school here at Mississippi State ended, I was lucky enough to have a free plane ticket to anywhere in the continental US (I was asked to wait for the next flight because they oversold last May. The flight was their thank you to me). I chose to go to where I will be living this summer, New York City.

It was a lazy trip to the city, as I didn’t go crazy to see all the sites. I mostly concentrated on seeing friends, the few interviews that I had, and . . . the FOOD.

I really like to eat.

Some of the really amazing places I went were:

Blackbird Parlour in Williamsburg

Miracle in Parkslope

Soho Natural in Soho

I’m excited to be back there in two weeks for at least the next two months. It’s too bad that I’ve challenged myself to not eat out for one month. We’ll see how that goes.
