Mourning Going Out To Eat.

Things suck right now and it is okay to miss the little things in life which you love. Eating out is a big part of my life. Whether it is a nice dinner for a birthday, fast food because I’m too lazy to cook or a pick-me-up scoop of ice-cream because I’m worth it. I…

Make A ‘Must Eat’ List.

Coping with being indoors is hard. Missing your favorite foods sucks. But DO NOT pine. Sooner or later this will all be over, and you will be able to spend all your money on food again. Whenever you get a craving, write it down, assert that you will eat it again, let it go and…

Eat Pizza When You Are Heatbroken.

The thing is, pizza is great, and heart break is horrible. In my experience, if you mix the two, you pretty much break even. Sure you can eat something healthier but will that make you happier? Probably in the long run, since your health may improve over time with a good diet. But right now,…

Happy Valentine’s Day From How We Eat.

Happy Valentine’s Day from How We Eat. Remember today isn’t about relationships, it’s about love. Try to show a little bit of love in everything you do. I recommend only eating things you love today. Love dessert? Order six pieces of cake. Like alcohol? Ten shots. Into tacos? Taco-down the whole menu. Whatever you do….

Making Pasta With Chef Rhea Gilkes

As a foodie there is nothing better than getting to cook with a chef. It is the closest you can get to learning from a professional without actually working in a restaurant.
