Friday was the last day CapMacDC, one of my favorite food trucks, was on the road! So, of course I had make sure I made it to #FarragutFriday to get my last taste!

I recently went to Panera Bread and ordered their Vegetarian Autumn Squash Soup, which is so delicious that I’ve had a craving for it ever since! I searched the Panera website, but alas, they had no recipe posted for their soup. So, I decided to make a “copycat recipe” . . .
Continuing my mission to try every DC food truck I possibly can . . . today for lunch I went to Amorini Panini . . .
Since this week is DC Restaurant Week, I thought wouldn’t it be nice to go to lunch with my sister! We chose M Street Bar and Grill, which is right near my office. Though the service was slow, the food was absolutely delicious! [...]
Last Saturday I had some truly great mexican food and margaritas! at El Centro D.F., a Taqueria & Tequileria on 14th Street (near U Street) . . .
This morning the boyfriend and I decided to go to brunch at The Original Pancake House in Bethesda. We got there around noon, and my-oh-my was it busy! But, that’s generally a good sign — a popular place usually means the food is tasty! . . .
After waking up late for the 2nd day in a row and forgetting my lunch yet again, I guess I just had to have lunch from another food truck again! This time I walked over to Franklin Park and tried out “Nonna’s Balls” from the Meetball Nation truck . . .

So, here it goes, my first “real” post since my two year hiatus!
Well, last month my Grandma, who we lovingly call Grammy, celebrated her 85th birthday! We had a family celebration with my parents, sister, uncles, aunts, and cousins — very lovely!
As soon as we knew we were planning a party, I knew that I wanted to bake her a cake. So, inspired by Picky Cook and Smitten Kitchen, I decided I would tackle a chocolate layer cake with ganache frosting.
One of my many passions is cooking. I’m a bit of a health nut, so I’m always looking for tasty figure-friendly foods. Though I must admit, I do have a bit of a sweet tooth.
Anyways, I was in the grocery store the other day and I came across Mann’s Broccoli Cole Slaw. On the back of the package there was a Hungry Girl recipe for Scoopable Chinese Chicken Salad (Serves 4). I thought I’d try it, so I made it for lunch that day. I altered the recipe a bit since I couldn’t find some of the ingredients. So, in the end it wasn’t so Chinese after all, but it was still quite delicious! Here it is if you’re interested:
