Passion for Philadelphia

I am in Italy and came across this sight at our hotel’s breakfast buffet. Near the expensive dried meats, and mixed in between the quality ricotta cheese and gourmet goat cheese was something labeled “Philadelphia Cheese.” At first I was confused, as I believe myself to be pretty knowledgable about most types of cheese, and […]

Condiment Chaos

I am always impressed with the vast range of customization that is possible from a properly stocked supply of condiments. Some restaurants have the disappointing minimum… Just the required salt, pepper, and ketchup. But other places excel in providing their guests endless options to ‘doctor’ their dish.

Free Expectations

I love free food…who doesn’t? I am pretty sure that half the members of Sam’s Club simply join up for the all-you-can-eat sample splurge that take place each Saturday at these mega-stores.

NOT TRUE!

Ahhhh….The Apple. So many variations of this humble fruit exist. From the intensely tart Granny Smith,  to the super sweet Honey Crisp, the possibilities seem endless. Of course there are always Gala apples, arguably one of the best all-around apples. These are consistently a  go-to choice for the Fed Up team because of their crunchy texture, mildly sweet taste, affordable price point, and the fact that […]

Sugar Overdose

I am working in Central America, and came across this sugar sanctuary in a large mall in Panama. I had to laugh at how there is an ENTIRE restaurant chain dedicated to churros, the Latin American fried doughnut-like treat. I then realized that in the USA, we too have our own special shrines which also […]

Why Did I Not Think Of That?

The Fed Up’s guru-of-all-things-random-from-the-internet, just insisted I check out this list ‘13 Life Changing Ways to Eat  Food.’ After reading this (especially #7), my mind has been blown, and I am looking at the world in a whole new way… Check out the link and then start wondering why you haven’t thought of that yourself?!?
