Traveling the State of Florida

I haven't fallen off the face of the Earth and I promise you I have been eating...alot! I've tried a ton of new places and ate at a ton of Whole Foods. In the past week I went to a total of 16 different Whole Food Markets all over the state of Florida, as far North as Orlando and as far South as Naples and Coral Gables.

My love of cooking is growing everyday as I get to experiment at home with my brand new kitchen aid mixer my bf bought for my birthday! I just tested it out the other day to make a favorite irish sweet.

I'm testing new things with the pasta company I work for and learning what the trending food habits are in each area.

I'm starting to settle into my new home and I promise things will be back to normal soon! Stay tuned for some great places to eat in some new areas!

Update!!! Where & What I'm up to!

Hey Everyone! So you probably thought I fell off the face of the Earth! No! I've had so many exciting things happen in my life, I haven't really gotten the time to blog. Since my initial work training for Severino Pasta, I've packed up my things and relocated to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to be closer to a majority of the Whole Foods Grocery Stores. I tried a few great places in the Ft. Lauderdale area such as Rocco's Taco's (Great table side guacamole) and Market 17 (all fresh local products, with a menu that changes daily).

One of my bosses is touring the state of Florida with me, going to all the Whole Foods. What an adventure! My job it great, offering a great product to the public couldn't be better. Talking to all the people that visit Wholes Foods, wonderful. To add travel to the mix, amazing. All the ingredients I could ask for!!!!

After my first day I stayed in Boca Raton. That night we ventured out to Delray Beach, Atlantic Ave for some dinner. We ended up eating at a place called Vic & Angelo's. A really cute Italian place. For my entree I had a pear and 4 cheese torteloni. Really tasty.

After visiting 5 days on my second day, we stopped in Miami. We had a great steak dinner at STK. My 3 mile run this morning did not make a dent in the meal I had this evening that's for sure! Filet with blue butter and a side of asparagus and for dessert fresh bag of donuts that basically melt in your mouth. It's not just the food that is wonderful but the atmosphere just helps to make it fantastic.

The rest of the week can only bring great things for my new adventure.
