It’s Fall. We should finally publish our last summer posts. We were hoping that summer wouldn’t end as long as we had something else to say. Father Time doesn’t work that way though. Our last days of Philly summer fun were spent with friends and family. One especially lovely weekday (yes weekday!) I took my […]

This weekend I left Pat in Philly and headed to Boston to enjoy a weekend with my college roommates! We did more than eat, but really … let’s just talk about the food. Streetcar Wine & Beer – 488 Centre Street, Jamaica Plain, MA Just our luck! Friday evening on a neighborhood stroll, and we’re […]

Good friends, great dialogue, homemade food. Thank you to our lovely friends for visiting us and gracing our dining table. Special thanks to Erin and AJ for sharing the dining ware out of their kitchen to ensure we could have a classy dinner! Clearly we’re trying to do big things without enough plates for 6 […]

On August 4, the family hosted a reunion in Dundalk, MD in honor of three sisters – Anna, Agnes, and Teresa – great-great grandmothers. Pat and I had been working on the planning committee for nine months so we were happy to finally see the day. The day was rainy and abnormally cold, but the […]

Tonight’s date night was free and yummy! We like bang for our buck, but it’s been a while since I’ve searched for the gems. There was a time when I would find all types of treats at no cost. My favorite treat of olden NYC folklore was the three course free lunch at the French […]

In the last couple of weeks, we’ve been inundated with the mistreatment of black men – a hard truth to swallow. Pat, my cousins, and I were standing on line for ice cream at Zwahlens in suburban PA when the Wall Street Journal pushed an article to Pat’s phone. Trayvon Martin was found guilty for […]

Portugal is a wondrous place. The people are the friendliest we’ve ever met. The sites beautifully old. The sun bright and sky blue. Take a look at our gallery for the highlights. The following though are snippets of our time through our treats. Fourth of July we stepped off the plane in Lisboa and dropped […]

The wedding was GORGEOUS!! Glasses up to Angel and Warrick! We love you and wish you the best!!     Thanks for the suggestions Food and Wine Hedonist! Unfortunately Cake Nouveau closed too early on Saturday and was closed Sunday, so we missed out. Yesterday, however, we made it to Sava’s and had a deliciously […]

Pat and I enjoy all treats. While we regularly ooh and ahhh about our ooey gooey sweet, salty, and fatty treats, we also have a deep affinity for our earthy green delights. Meet our typical smoothie. We use our mighty Ninja to blend many fruit and vegetable juices. This particular number is a mixture of […]

The Treat Trek is headed to MI this summer. Where to go? Our dear friends are getting married in Ann Arbor so much of the visit will be wrapped up in wedding festivities, but Pat and I will need to consider treat options. I know Ann Arbor will have something, but what has Detroit?

How did we miss it?!? The Arcade Diner in Memphis! Well, I know how. I was too busy eating pork ribs to even think about brunch! Sorry we missed you and your sweet potatoE pancakes. (Yes, potatoE! I can’t resist a shot at Dan Quayle.) Sitting at home on a Friday enjoying some work-from-home Friday […]

The smell of “smoked” fills my nostrils. My fingers are dirty with it. In every neighborhood we’ve visited today, the smell of smokiness wafts through the air. People at home. Restaurants. Everyone. We stood outside the Pink Palace, the home of Mr. Piggly Wiggly himself, in a rather high end neighborhood and smelled the sweet […]

First off, well done Patrick! Fine marathon running young man! Now that we’ve acknowledged the real reason for our trip to London April 18-23, 2013, let’s talk about how London is paying homage to its cupcake treats. (Sorry for neglecting my blog duties. I’ve been highlighting trips elsewhere and otherwise inconsistent. I need to consolidate.) […]
