What could be better on a cold winter night than a steaming hot bowl of Pho, a Vietnamese noodle soup. That is what drew us to Rice & Noodle on one this particular occasion.
Lancaster, PA can be a surprising city. While often times people only think of “Amish Country”, Lancaster city itself has quit a few gems to discover. One visit that inspired me to start up again was my lunch at the historic Belvedere Inn.
Some great people like Lancaster Transplant and Lancexplorer have done a great job of sharing some of these gems and I thought I was time I start showcasing this beautiful city a little bit more. Maybe others will be encouraged to discover them as well!
My Motivation is Pizza!
While I am certainly not one to turn down a night on the town, sometimes you just want to stay in and have some delicious warm crisp homemade pizza. Who has the energy, you might ask. The truth of the matter is it isn’t hard or very time-consuming. Let me show you what I mean.
So now that we have some sort of stability in life, we celebrated at one of our favorite Mexican put stops, el pueblito.
So it’s been pretty exciting times as the articles I wrote for the hispanic publication here in Lancaster has finally gone to print! Here ya go:
Thanksgiving just passed us by and I’m sure there was a lot of tradition and innovation in all of your kitchens. Our kitchen was more of a collaboration than usual. The reason I say that is because when I was little it was basically my mom cooking. Then when I learned how to cook and learned that I enjoyed cooking, I took over.

A couple weeks ago we celebrated our third anniversary (Yay for us!). To celebrate, we decided to go to Himalayan Curry & Grill.

We started off eating their wafer thin chips with what I believe to be anise seeds. Here is one with a bit of their tomato relish.
After reading Adam Roberts go on and on about pasta, how delicious it is, how easy it is, I decided to make my own. After reading about his spring vegetables pasta, I ventured out to make a carnivorous and less cheesy (in the literal sense) pasta. So I decided to start off with the base of many great things, an onion.
This last week was the Lancaster Taste the World in Downtown Lancaster.
Susan and I are always excited about this event but due to the rain, she stayed home and I ventured out with my dad (he heard about the pig ears and the cactus salad and was more than happy to go). Our first stop was Upohar.
As I started writing this post I suddenly realized how far behind I am in these posts! You see February is a big birthday month and to celebrate my brother turning 31 we went to Carrabba’s Italian Grill. I was curious since I’ve had a couple good comments about it and I wanted to see how much of it was true. We started off the evening with a Sangria. I wouldn’t say that it was something that would compel me to rush back but it was a decent enough accompaniment to our meal.
