Top 3 Poke Restaurants in NYC

Poke is a new concept to me I must admit. The easiest way to describe it is that it’s sushi in a bowl. I have only been eating sushi for about two years, so I was a little hesitant to try poké. I’m still a bit of a picky eater, but I’m so glad I…

What’s Up: October 🎃👻🍁

Wedding Weekend in Michigan Part 1

This weekend was one of those weekends that went by waaaay too fast! On Wednesday night, Jon and I flew back to Michigan to see my friends Danielle and Nate get married.

What’s Up: August

I feel like I was just on the plane back to Michigan writing my What’s Up: July post, where has the time gone?? I’ve been linking up with the first blogger I ever read, Shay Shull, for my What’s Up posts. Each month I’m answering the following questions: What I’m eating: I’ve been eating the same old…

Quick Cucumber Salad

Cucumbers aren’t my favorite vegetable in the world, but this recipe helps me with my goal to eat more veggies.

Lyssy’s Eats: Dô Cookie Dough Confections
