Elephants and Sealions

I didn’t invite the elephant, but he came anyway. We got up early and worked as much as we had energy for. Since Wednesday we’ve been unpacking, sorting, shopping, and organizing in an attempt to make her dorm room like more like home because, well, it’s going to be for this next year and all […]

Bridges and Giants: A half-day in Portland

Growing up somewhere doesn’t mean you know it well. Actually, I’ve met adults who’ve lived in a place their entire lives and still don’t know much about it. I suppose some people just don’t care. Me, I was a kid in Portland. I grew up there, going where my parents took me. I could care […]

Old art and new friends

Facebook is a funny thing. Over two decades ago my husband sat next to a girl on a flight to Germany. A year later he sat next to her on the flight home. Those are the only times they’ve seen each other until today, but they shared a common experience as exchange students in Germany […]

An Annapolis Deli to return to – Chick & Ruths Delly est. 1965

I just found some notes scribbled on an old menu and realized that I haven’t shared Chick and Ruth’s deli even though it’s become my local favorite.  From the first time I saw it, it intrigued me.  In this tall narrow building sandwiched between two others along Annapolis’ busy old town Main Street, locals, tourists, […]

The Sweet of Sweet Sue’s of North Beach

I distinctly remember multiple conversations with my oldest claiming that “the only cheesecake” she likes is my goat cheese cheesecake.  I don’t blame her, it’s amazing,  but today when I brought home a chocolate peanut butter cheesecake from Sweet Sue’s, I didn’t expect her to eat the whole thing either. “I thought you didn’t like […]

EZ Thai Restaurant

I noticed this little hole-in-the-wall restaurant just after moving here 18 months ago, but it didn’t appeal to me.  I love Thai food, but the name and placement in a mediocre strip-mall convinced me that it wasn’t worth my time.  I love food, but won’t intentionally waste my time or money on average, so I […]

The Burger Joint

I love a good hamburger, almost (gasp) as much as I love a good cup of coffee.  Horrible, I know, but to me, a hamburger is the perfect food.  You have protein and veggie held together with enough carb so that you don’t get your fingers dirty.  I love that too… I can eat a […]

Best of Southern Maryland: Mexican Restaurants

Mexican food is about as American these days as hot dogs and popcorn.  Really.  I’d nearly forgotten when living in Spain, but now that I’m back, it’s one of those first things you ask.  “Where’s the best Mexican food?”  There isn’t a plethora of it here as there aren’t a plethora of Mexicans either.  In […]

Skipper’s Pier

Skipper’s Pier6158 Drum Point RoadDeale, MD  20751410-867-7110 Sometimes you just need to get out of the city and relax on the water’s edge, watch the sunset, and listen to the soft cry of sea gulls and the lapping of the water.  Sometimes you want amazing food without spending your paycheck. Those are moments you head […]
