Food Memories- Prince Pücklers

Thursday, March 23rd, 2006

Sweets and I have been indulging our ice cream tendencies lately. From sharing containers of chocolatey Ben & Jerry’s, to sampling our local made vegan ice creams, our taste buds are happy. We happen to live in a mini culinary hot zone that gives us access to some great food items. On my way into [...]

Arggg, Chocolate Booty

Tuesday, March 7th, 2006

This journey up North was a much-needed time for Sweets and I to unwind and relax in the company of like minded friends. We soaked and played in snow, and though I didn’t get to hit the chocolate shops on the way, we did indulge in some chocolate nibbles paired with raspberry lambic- taste bud [...]

Caveman Kitchens, Sole Suburbia Survivor

Tuesday, October 25th, 2005

Last last weekend, I took the train up to the Seattle area to meet Sweets with friends who were celebrating a birthday. We had decided to split up our journey this way so that I wouldn’t have to endure the back of the bike for so long. It worked out rather well despite poor Amtrak [...]

Taqueria El Pato Verde

Wednesday, September 28th, 2005

Sweets and I have a fun game we play when we meet for lunch on campus. We chew over our lunch and ponder like greedy kids in a candy store: what other food place needs to open on campus? Indian, Chinese, Koren, Pub, Mediterranean, Italian, Hawaiian, Starbuckian… we have so many cuisine styles to choose [...]

originally posted on Something 2 Eat, May 25,2004. Your New Saturday Morning Ritual This was my morning I decided to be French. Inspired by a recent French stereotype that introduced herself to me, I decided that this was the morning to do it, to go all the way… to have hot chocolate and beignets for [...]

Sweet Life

Wednesday, May 25th, 2005

originally posted on Something 2 Eat, May 24,2004. Not so Secret Vegan Agenda? In Eugene? And so the sweet sweet Sirens of Sweet Life beckon my sated tummy to their temptuous lair. “No really, I’m fine,” replies my stomach, which is soon wrestled into submission by my eyes which have spied glistening fruits, gleaming frostings, [...]

Cafe Sienna

Saturday, March 26th, 2005

A new addiction has been brewing forth in our household… the need for a satisfyingly large weekend breakfast. In addition to establishing the pace for the day it has become a new way for us to get our fill of Mexican food. Cafe Sienna, tucked in the busy 13th Ave strip of campus has become [...]

Marché at the Museum

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2005

The days this week have been long, sore (ahem, renewed committment to head to the gym, inspired by… well all sorts of things inspire these sorts of tendencies and this one is a bit long winded to explain), yet delightfully sunny in their duration. After Groundhog’s Day, the denziens of Eugene, Oregon became resigned to [...]
