The Art of Eating in Italia🇮🇹

It’s no secret that the Italians know how to cook. How many dishes do we dream about back home that are staples in the Italian cuisine? Cappuccino, espresso, spaghetti, gnocchi, ravioli, tortellini, risotto, panini, bread, bread, (did I mention bread?), prosciutto, mozzarella, parmigian, olive oil, pizza, tiramisu, gelato, and endlessly flowing wine.

“Thanks for eating with me”

My 2.5 weeks of singing, exploring, and eating my way through NYC. “Thanks for eating with me,” my friend Danni told me as we hugged goodbye. We were finishing up a two and a half week vocal program in New York City, and had bonded instantly over our passion (or some would say obsession) for…

“America Runs on Dunkin”

My love for coffee has grown exponentially in the past couple years, and honestly I’m not sad about it. I’m the kind of person who drinks decaf at night just for the taste. But it’s not just the taste of coffee that I love, it’s the feeling of the warm glass mug in my hand…
