Where to Eat and Drink in Amsterdam

March 10, 2017 1 comment

As I mentioned in my last post, I think that Amsterdam’s food scene is way underrated. It’s difficult to define the city’s cuisine in just a few words because they’ve gathered influence from many different countries, so I guess I’d just call it global. From cheap eats to fine dining, we loved every meal we had in our four days there. If I really had to narrow it down, here is […]

The One Restaurant You Must Visit in Amsterdam: Restaurant De Kas

The One Restaurant You Must Visit in Amasterdam: Restaurant De Kas ll Amsterdam Restaurant Review on www.littlechefbigappetite.com

Amsterdam’s food scene is completely underrated. People rave about the incredible cuisine in cities like Paris and Tokyo, but you rarely hear the same praise for Amsterdam. After spending four days in this beautiful city, I became increasingly aware of this. Since food is such a big part of both of our lives, Travis and I spend a good amount of time (okay, a lot of time) researching restaurants before each city we visit. After reading […]

L'As du Fallafel: Where to Go and What to Eat in Paris ll www.littlechefbigappetite.com

Hello from Amsterdam! We arrived here on Sunday evening and are loving everything so far. We’re headed to the Anne Frank House this morning, but before we go, I wanted to stop by to say hi to you guys and share some highlights from our time in Paris last week. It was Travis’s first time in Paris, so he wanted to make sure he saw all of the main attractions, and I […]

Juicero Review: What is Juicero and How Does it Compare to a Regular Juicer?

Juicero Review: What is Juicero and How Does it Compare to a Regular Juicer? ll www.littlechefbigappetite.com

I recently had the opportunity to try Juicero, and I loved it! What is Juicero, you ask? Think of it as a luxury, super high-tech juicer. I don’t think this review would be completely fair without mentioning that I do not own a “regular” juicer. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve definitely been very interested in buying a juicer. No one can deny the incredible nutrition that a daily fruit and vegetable juice can provide, but […]

I Quit My Corporate Job to Travel Across Europe. And You Can Too! ll www.littlechefbigappetite.com

In all honesty, I’ve started and stopped writing this post so many times in the last week. Little Chef Big Appetite has always been about my recipes, healthy eating, and tidbits of my daily life. I know you guys aren’t coming here to read about my career or philosophies on life. But, over the course of the last month there have been a couple of big changes in my life […]

Brown Ale Marinated Hanger Steak with Caramelized Onions Recipe -- Perfect for a Cozy Date Night In! ll www.littlechefbigappetite.com

I don’t know about you, but I always prefer to stay in on Valentine’s Day, rather than go out to eat. Sometimes Travis and I will go out to dinner the weekend before February 14th, so we can avoid paying crazy prices for prix-fixe menus at our favorite restaurants. But on Valentine’s Day evening we always prefer to open up a bottle of wine at home and cook a delicious meal together. When […]

It’s Thanksgiving week, my favorite time of the year! I am so excited to be writing this post from my parents’ home in Boston. I am here for the week, celebrating Thanksgiving and spending lots of time with my family. I couldn’t wait to share this Pumpkin Pie Dog Treats recipe with you! We recently started incorporating pureed pumpkin into Bessie’s food after we read that it can help reduce itchiness and stop […]

FITzee Foods Delivers Healthy Pre-Portioned Meals

FITzee Foods Review l www.littlechefbigappetite.com

Last month I had the opportunity to try FITzee Foods, a healthy pre-portioned meal delivery service. FITzee is different from services like Blue Apron and Plated because the meals arrived already prepared, and all you have to do is heat them up.  So that means no grocery shopping, meal planning, or cooking.   Admittedly, when FITzee Foods reached out to me about trying their service, at first I wasn’t sure if […]

Hi friends, happy Monday! Did you enjoy your extra hour of sleep over the weekend? As nice as I thought it was on Sunday morning, I was super bummed when I looked out the window last night at 5PM and saw that it was dark already. Wah! Where did all the daylight goooo!? Since I’m now in total fall mode (despite it being 80 degrees in Santa Monica tomorrow…), I’ve got […]
