FOOD: I Have a Food Crush on Flour Bakery [Boston]

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/DSC_0630-e1414373025361.jpg

I’m well aware that the Flour Bakery bandwagon is already pretty full at this point, but I have to hop on it. Yes, the lines can be ridiculously long and yes, I understand that sharing Flour as my go-to breakfast or lunch spot for out-of-towners only contributes to the problem, but the truth is: Flour [...]

FOOD: A Taste of Tampa

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/tampa-300x250.jpg

Tampa might be one of the last cities on any foodie’s bucket list but that shouldn’t be the case. Known mostly for it’s endless beaches, bays, and buccaneers, Tampa’s food scene boosts some hidden gems. While it would have been easy to make a reservation at a James Beard award winning establishment prior to my [...]

FOOD: Black Market [NYC]

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/blk-mkt-300x250.jpg

It’s not news that I love a good burger and that I’m always on the hunt for the best burger in NYC.  So when I moved to the East Village and walked past Black Market (Blk Mkt) and saw that they claim to have one of the best in the city, I had to go [...]

FOOD: Americana Grill and Café [Jersey City, NJ]

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/IMG_6087-e1414364538530.jpg

As the outdoor temperature drops, so does my motivation to venture out of my home for resources. I see the colder months as a time to get reacquainted with my favorite delivery personnel–and that’s exactly what I do with Americana Grill and Café of Jersey City. I randomly selected this eatery on GrubHub the very [...]

Okay, I’m stretching that a bit, but it’s not too much of an exaggeration- on Thursday, October 30, Edible Manhattan will be hosting Edible Escape, where you can grab a bite from all corners of the world right [...]

FOOD: Fatta Cuckoo [NYC]

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/bec-300x250.jpg

Ah, brunch.  Is there anything better?  The other day, my roommates and a few friends went to Fatta Cuckoo to catch up and talk all things Halloween.  And I think it’s safe to say that we all had a great time. This place is small, like really small.  But if you make a reservation you [...]

RECIPE: Apartment-Friendly Nutella

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/DSC_0588-e1413416998895.jpg

It started with a jar of hazelnuts. I needed a handful for something, somewhere, sometime and the leftovers lingered on my shelf. What else to make with hazelnuts except homemade Nutella? I thought it would be a long, involved process, but turns out, homemade Nutella is pretty quick and simple– simple enough to make in [...]

BITE OF THE MOMENT: I Left My Heart at Heirloom Market BBQ [Atlanta]

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/2014-10-11-12.48.29-2-300x250.jpg

I have very few regrets in life, but one of the biggest to date might just have to be: not carrying the rest of the meal pictured above on the plane back home to NYC. Dramatic? Not if you’ve had it.  A pretty nondescript shack in a nondescript area right off the Perimeter, Heirloom Market [...]

RECIPE: Fried Pickles & Spicy Ketchup

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/IMG_5832-e1413418571856.jpg

Football truly bores me into a deep “my eyes are open but I’m not actually paying attention” trance, but it manages to pull out one huge benefit–friends and families gather to eat delicious snacks and sip on tasty beverages to add some life to the snooze-fest (sorry I’m not sorry to all the fans out there). In [...]

FOOD: Sunny & Annie Deli [NYC]

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/Sunny-Annie-Deli-300x250.jpg

There are quite literally loads of delis all over New York.  Bodegas of every variety line the streets, especially downtown.  But one seems to stand above the rest–and not just because it’s a block away from my apartment. In a New York Magazine article about Sunny & Annie Deli, they said that there could be [...]
