Fat Kid’s Dining Guide

Now that Tony and I have settled into Portland, Oregon (going on three years now!) we have made it a priority to take at least one big international vacation each year… because once you have the travel bug, it never really dies.

Everyone we met was eager to tell us about their favorite restaurants and places to grab a casual […]

Pushing this apprehension aside, I decided to think outside the box and maybe, for once, talk about our […]

When we were traveling in 2012, I was big on creating dining guides for some of the international cities we jaunted in. But since settling down back in the U.S., these guides have fallen to the wayside… But that’s all about to change! With my folks living in Kauai (we’re vacationing there as we speak!), […]
