Brio Tuscan Grille- Boca raton

I just wanted to post about this lovely Bruschetta spread from Brio, a Tuscan restaurant in Boca.

Trader Joe’s Pizza Party

My weekends in Chicago are limited, and when I’m in town, I try to get together with the girls for a meal or two :). This past Friday I was a bit wiped from traveling, so dining in was a perfect option!

Sam wanted to bring a pizza from Domino’s, regardless of what we were cooking, but I suggested we make some pizza! My friend, Lauren, generously hosted us at her place. It turns out she is also a skilled pizza maker along with her other fab cooking skills.

Pizzeria Locale- Boulder, Colorado

Yummy Margherita Pizza!

Pizzeria Locale is actually on my “USA-BEST PIZZA” list, so I was excited to hit another great spot with a killer reputation.

  • They have a beautiful pizza oven
  • They have a garage door which opens so people can eat at the bar from outside the restaurant!

Blue Moose- Vail, Colorado

I was so lucky to spend a weekend in Colorado with my mom & my sister on a recent ski trip! We went to a variety of restaurants for dinner, and on our last night in the mountains, we stopped at The Blue Moose. They have locations in Beaver Creek and Vail, and we tried the Vail location at Lionshead Village. As expected, the place was packed. We put our name down and waited 20 minutes or so until our table was ready. It was funny because my mom was craving the ZA more than I was, so I knew we had to wait patiently!
