New Year, New Location

January 1, 2013

Happy 2013! Travel Eat Repeat is moving — starting today, you can find me on Tumblr (with plenty of brunch, D.C. sightseeing and cute kitten photos to come in the new year!). Hope to see you there!

At-Home Coffee Shop

November 28, 2012

Now that it’s cold, I don’t always want to go far for the coffee shop atmosphere — plus as much as I love my neighborhood cafe, it can get expensive. So — at-home coffee shop it is! Cafe au lait made with a used-twice-a-year milk frother, our latest book club book and vegan pumpkin bread, all enjoyed in sweatpants on my own couch with a kitten on my lap. Who needs a real coffeehouse?

How I Spent Black Friday

November 27, 2012

The only line I waited in Friday was to scramble single file, hand-over-hand up narrow sections of Old Rag Mountain in Shenandoah National Park. Instead of waiting outside Best Buy all night for a 92″ flat screen TV, I hiked a couple of hours for 180-degree panorama views. And rather than be surrounded by throngs of other people… well, actually, Old Rag was pretty packed too. Guess I wasn’t the only one with the great idea to get out of the city.

Let’s Hear It For Leftovers

November 26, 2012

Can we all just agree that Thanksgiving leftovers can be just as good, if not better, than Thanksgiving dinner itself?

Thankful Every Day

November 22, 2012

With all that’s going on in our country and around the world, we shouldn’t just stop and be thankful one day a year on the third Thursday of November.

If you have family or friends to celebrate Thanksgiving with today, be thankful. If you’re looking forward to a good meal, be thankful. If the sun is shining, be thankful. If you’re inside and warm, be thankful. If you’re safe from violence and war, be thankful.

Let’s not take it for granted.

Southern Eating In Nashville

November 20, 2012

Getting out of town to Nashville was the perfect getaway: a quick plane trip led to great food, amazing music and stunning Tennessee countryside. Comfort food was the theme of the weekend, with classics Loveless Cafe and Pancake Pantry serving up incredible, don’t-need-to-eat-again-today breakfasts. Nashville itself is a big city that feels like a small town (which I loved) and somewhere I’ll definitely visit again sooner rather than later, if only to eat at all the restaurants I didn’t have to time to visit and hear music at the hundreds of venues there wasn’t time to explore.

Nashville Bound

November 15, 2012

Tomorrow I leave for a weekend getaway to Music City USA — Nashville, Tenn. After a crazy-busy summer and fall, I’m looking forward to exploring a new city, hearing great music and eating delicious food.

Places already on my to-eat list include Arnold’s Country KitchenPancake Pantry and The Loveless Cafe but where else do I need to eat/visit/see over four days in “the Athens of the South”?
