Hey there. Yeah, I’m talking to you. Thanks for stopping by!
My name is Samantha! I’m a college student currently studying in Boston. I hail from a small coastal town in Maine, but I am very much enjoying city living.
Some things that make me happy include: going on a walk everyday, online shopping, watching TV (The Mindy Project and Scandal are my current favorites), seeing a movie that makes me feel something, reading (and finishing!) a book, spending time outdoors (especially in the Fall!), sweater weather, and eating really good food.
Now this last thing brings me to why this little corner of the internet exists…
The food at college is fine, but it certainly isn’t something to get excited about. I love to cook and thanks to my father who is a chef, I’m pretty good at it too. However, college doesn’t make cooking easy. So sometimes when you’re sick and tired of the dining hall, eating out is the best option. It can also be a very expensive option, but desperate times call for desperate measures. And the other day I was feeling that desperation because I got a funny kind of homesick. I was homesick for the food from home. I was fortunate to live near a place with the most restaurant per capita in America, and have parents who were great cooks. I grew to have my favorite spots, but now that I’ve moved to a new place, I haven’t found my new go-tos.
So this blog is a way of curing my homesickness while also introducing me to all the food Boston has to offer! (Or at least that is the goal.)
Boston has so much to offer, so where do I even begin?! Well thanks to a generous family member who gave me several gift cards to some eateries in my new neighborhood, and along with the aid of a couple helpful articles from Spoon University and Buzzfeed, I have plenty of places to start!
Until next time. Xx
