A Morning in Port Townsend

Due to Brian’s crazy travel schedule, we ended up piecing together several experiences throughout the month of September to celebrate our fourth wedding anniversary. One of those getaways took place the weekend following our anniversary, which we spent exploring Port Townsend and the northeastern tip of the Olympic Peninsula. Although billed as a weekend getaway, …

Worldly Fare: Try the World Morocco

As much as I love getting a Try the World box from somewhere new so I learn all about the cuisine, it's equally exciting to get a box from a country I've visited because it gives me an opportunity to reminisce and try making the cuisine I experienced for myself.

One of my friends and former co-workers recommended we spend some time in Volunteer Park, which is on …

Worldly Fare: Nielsen’s Pastries

Our latest local find for wordly fare was Nielsen's Pastries, a Danish pastry shop that's been operating in Lower Queen Anne since 1965. We were in the neighborhood, ready to spend our day seeing some films at the Seattle International Film Festival but were a bit early to line up for our first show. We hadn't had breakfast so we decided …
