I'll start with a bunch of restaurants where you can eat for cheap, and then move on to the pricier options that are well worth it for a special occasion. (Every list … Continue reading Boston’s Best Bets
Hello! I wanted to tell my lovely Chew on This readers about my latest project! It's where I'm focusing most of my energy these days, but don't worry- Chew on This isn't going anywhere.

As I've previously mentioned, at length and with feeling, I love meal planning. It's saved me more money than I can even fathom, and it's how I can control how healthy (or unhealthy) I'll be eating from one week to another.

Give these new recipes a try and a) you'll never cook your pizza sauce ever again, and b) you … Continue reading [Updated] When the Moon Hits Your Eye Like A Big Pizza Piiiiiiie…..
I love lazy days. They're not actually particularly easy to come by these days, as the realization that I'm leaving Montreal has started to set in, and along with it, shpilkes (look it up- it's my favourite Yiddish word) have started presenting themselves, pushing me to want to constantly be doing things that I know I'll … Continue reading Empty-Fridge Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
Hello again, world! It's been approximately 100 years since my last post. March 2017 (and the first half of April) was an absolute whirlwind- six weeks that I won't ever forget.
