    Teaberry’s Tea Room

    When my friend and I were looking up a place for brunch recently, we came across Teaberry’s Tea Room in Flemington – a town in-between us. The charming restaurant has tea, of course, but also an afternoon tea and lunch menu. Teaberry’s is housed inside a Victorian home that was built in 1822 and is one of the oldest homes in Flemington. Interesting fact, there was an earlier home built on the property owned by Esther Fleming Lowry whose family was one of the earliest in town and its namesake. Her and her husband were friends with George and Martha Washington! But that house burned down and the one in 1822…

    One-Pot Chicken & Dirty Rice

    Who doesn’t love one-pot recipes? Any recipe that by design leaves me with less dishes to wash is a appreciated by me! I came across this One-Pot Chicken & Dirty Rice recipe and it looked so good, I had to try it! I followed the recipe in terms of directions so click on the link above for the exact recipe and steps, but I did a few substitutions so keep reading this post for photos and what I subbed! First, you need to make the marinade for the chicken. The marinade consists of salt, garlic powder, paprika, pepper, cayenne pepper, oregano, red pepper flakes, lemon juice, and olive oil. It also…

    Japanese Jelly Candies

    Happy Friday! It has been a week. So this weekend, and it’s a long weekend, is so needed. I was scrolling through the photos on my phone the other day and saw this photo I took back in September of a box of jelly candies my parents bought in Japan and thought it would make for a nice, colorful flashback Friday. Back in August I went on a family vacation to Japan and Hong Kong and before heading to Hong Kong from Japan we were at the airport trying to use up some of our Japanese yen. The duty free shops were great for some last minute gifts for others and…

  • Apple Pie - Cutouts & Braided Lattice

    Apple Pie + Cutouts & Braided Lattice

    Happy Thursday! I hope your week’s been going well. I’ve been really busy, but I’m glad it’s already Thursday. I have a quick post for you today. Continuing with my pie theme from my last food post (see my Coconut Cream Pie post), I’m sharing an apple pie today. I’ve shared an apple pie covered in leaf cutouts on here before and one with a lattice top which is why this post will be short and sweet since I’m not going to cover the whole process of making an apple pie. Just click (here) for one of my previous posts on apple pie. The apple pie I’m sharing today has…

    Finding Good Food In The US of A

    (Image Source) Getting your hands on a bite to eat while in America is something a lot of people take for granted. With the sheer number of food places available, you can go practically anywhere in a US city to eat something, and it’s been this way for a long time. Of course, though, the vast majority of the options you will find won’t fit the ticket. Instead, if you want to eat something great, you have to know how to look for it, and that is exactly what this post is here to show you. With all of this in mind, finding food on your travels around the US…

  • Coconut Cream Pie

    Coconut Cream Pie

    Are you pie lover? I’m not a huge sweets/dessert person but I do like desserts. I just don’t have a huge sweet tooth so when I do eat dessert it’s not a ton of it. That being said, my favorite pie is Coconut Cream Pie. It’s so good! I don’t find it to be too sweet and I love the creaminess of it. First off, if you’re wondering what the difference is between a coconut cream pie and a coconut custard pie – I looked it up. Custard pies have the filling baked in the crust and cream pies are filled after the pie crust has baked. I have made…

    December 2018 Favorites + Looking Back on 2018

    Can you believe it’s the very last day of 2018?! I honestly can’t. This year went by in the blink of an eye and I need time to slow down. I thought about doing a 2018 recap and include some of my favorite posts from the year, but that would be very time consuming to go through the entire year to pick out my top posts. I used to do that but it would just take forever and I always felt like I wasn’t doing my recap justice nor paying proper homage to these favorite posts and moments. So I’ve decided not to do that this year, but I will…

    DC Diary: Food & Heading Home

    I’m back home in NJ! My trip to DC was a nice few days away and now I’m busy with Secret Santa with friends and New Year’s Eve. I have exactly 1 day (New Year’s Day) to just stay home and not have to do anything before I go back to work. In the meantime while I’ve got a few spare moments, I wanted to share where and what I ate in DC and recap my last day aka my drive home. When I arrived in DC on Wednesday, we pretty much only had time to settle in to the hotel, walk around, and then go to dinner. We had…

    Christmas Sweets & Treats

    I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with loved ones yesterday. It all comes and goes way too fast, but I’ve still got some photos to share with Christmas decor in the background so I’m holding on to the holiday for a little while longer. Plus, I’m headed to D.C. today for a few days and I’m sure my photos there will have Christmas decorations involved. Side note – as with all my trips I’ll be keeping a travel diary on here so starting tomorrow I’ll be documenting my trip until I return this weekend! I’m going to share what I wore for Christmas in a few days, but…
