Nine times out of ten, I will order something savory for breakfast/brunch. Whether it be eggs benedict, cheese grits with shrimp, or a breakfast burger, I love it all.
So when I order pancakes, it’s a big deal and I only do so when I know that they’re going to be fantastic. Which is exactly what happened at Clinton Street Baking Co, which has some of the best pancakes I’ve ever tasted in New York!
I’ve been in love with Granger & Co.’s ricotta hotcakes since I first tried them three years during a morning trip with friends out to Notting Hill. I’ve tried to recreate them a few times since but their never turn out quite the same–maybe because I don’t have honeycomb butter readily available??–which means that I’ve just been drooling over the memory of the hotcakes for the past few years.
So when I was planning/trying to figure out what restaurants I wanted to eat in while Matt and I were in London for a few days, I immediately put Granger & Co. at the top of the list.
There’s very little that I love more than a good meal in life (other than binge watching shows on Netflix, of course). So when I was in Paris, I was excited to eat all of the chausson aux pommes, cheese, meats, and croissants that my heart desired.
I was especially excited when Matt surprised me with lunch Le Relais de l’Entrecôte on our third day in Paris, after we had spent the past few hours building up an appetite walking through the Musée d’Orsay and admiring some of the best works of the Impressionist movement.
As I’ve said (probably way too many times), I’m a big museum nerd. Whether they focus on art, natural history, or science, I love them all. And, as y’all probably already know, Paris has some of the best museums in the world, rich with history and culture. So when Matt and I were in Paris the other week, I dragged him along with me to a few of my favorite museums.
It feels like forever since I last blogged! With my travels last week and then having to come back to the real world and get back into the swing of things at work, it seems like I’ve been running around nonstop for the past two weeks. But I’m back and so, so excited for spring and everything the warmer temperatures have to offer–aka finally getting to wear dresses and open toed shoes, as well as trips to the shore!
I’ve always been a wanderer at heart. Whether it be flying across the world to see the Great Pyramids of Giza, taking the train down to Washington, DC, or simply walking out my backdoor to see if anything new is going on in my city, I’ve been incredibly lucky to see so much this world has to offer.
But now that I’ve been working full-time for the past few years, it’s definitely a little more difficult to be sporadic when it comes to traveling–both time-wise and expense-wise. And while I’m the first to admit that I’ a bit of a shopaholic (I’m looking at you Sephora and Amazon Prime), if you put your mind to it saving for your dream vacation will become a breeze!
