The ultimate guide to all things pumpkin

October 9, 2014

Reading Time: < 1 minute It’s finally fall. It’s time to break out the UGG boots and go to haunted houses. Time for selfies in the leaves and pumpkin flavored everything.

September 8, 2014

Reading Time: 2 minutes Haley Madison | Blog Editor | @haleyshantelle I make bad decisions. Often I make bad decisions regarding food.

Fast food find: Subway’s Flatizza

June 30, 2014

Reading Time: 2 minutes My favorites foods are those with names that are just two words nonsensically smashed together. So, naturally the inaugural “Fast food find” is featuring Subway’s Flatizza. I ventured into my neighborhood Subway and was overwhelmed with the familiar Subway aroma. I’m sure you know it too. The line was short as I sheepishly walked up […]

180 Tacos

June 6, 2014

Reading Time: 3 minutes I have to be honest. This is not my first visit to 180 Tacos. So, while this isn’t a first impression, the fact that I’ve revisited 180 is a pretty big deal. 180 Tacos specializes in classic street tacos for 2 dollars a piece, adding 50 cents for steak or seafood. The menu is divided […]

April 11, 2014

Reading Time: 4 minutes I walked into Temptasian 15 minutes before closing, a dangerous time to review a restaurant. Generally, employees are tired, the chef is working half-heartedly and the food is less than fresh. Fortunately, the woman who greeted me was friendly and addressed me by name (I had called my order in a few minutes earlier). My […]
