Ice cream solves all problems. (Unless you’re lactose intolerant, of course.) When it’s 8:49 pm and you text your husband “Want to go get ice cream? We have to go NOW” any argument you might have been having no longer matters. @bigdipicecream always has been and always will be my favorite local I’ve cream shop. It helps that it’s walking distance from my house… but tonight we drove because we were on a time crunch! We got in line at 8:56, and even though the clock struck 9 right as we went to place our order, we got our ice cream served with a smile, as always. Thanks for being awesome, Big Dip 🍦 PS - did you know that Big Dip serves vegan ice cream? . . #icecream #icecreamlover #icecreamsundae #icecreamstand #peanutbutter #chocolatepeanutbutter #syracuse #syracuseny #wheresyracuseeats #syracusefood #syracusefoodie #foodie #foodies #foodiesofinstagram #cameraeatsfirst #upstate #upstateny #upstatenewyork #iloveny #newyorkfoodie #nyfood #nyfoodie #foodcritic #foodreview #getinmybelly #foodblogger #eeeeats #eeeeeats #eatlocal

I spent the afternoon with my sister-in-law checking out some eateries in Oswego and I have to share. First we went to @tatlimbakery, owned by Sevgi Evelin Familo who emigrated to the US from Turkey. The bakery offers a mixture of authentic Turkish creations and other bakery favorites. It’s also one of the only places locally where you can get Turkish coffee! We ordered some baklava, a birthday cake macaron, and a root beer iced coffee. I love that there are so many unique flavors of drinks and baked goods. The macaron was perfect - the texture was spot on and the filling was creamy with just the right amount of sweetness. After a wonderful hike around Rice Creek Field Station, we went back into town to get a late lunch at @norasoswego. The cafe focuses on healthy-minded breakfasts and lunches. I was super happy to find a curried chicken salad sandwich on the menu. And it was delicious! Now I don’t have to drive all the way to Baltimore to satisfy my cravings. If you’re in Oswego, be sure to check out both spots for some delicious bites. . . #oswego #oswegocounty #oswegony #womenowned #womanowned #foodie #foodies #foodiesofinstagram #cameraeatsfirst #cameradrinksfirst #upstate #upstateny #upstatenewyork #iloveny #newyorkfoodie #nyfood #nyfoodie #foodcritic #foodreview #getinmybelly #foodblogger #eeeeats #eeeeeats #eatlocal

When @syracusedotcom asked me to join the food critics team to judge the samples at the @syrfoodtrucks Food Truck Battle, I jumped at the chance. I mean, who wouldn’t want to sample EVERYTHING at a food truck battle?! Well… you’d think that until you get past about 20 or so samples and your stomach starts fighting back. All in all, we tried 36 different samples and found many that we loved! It was definitely hard to keep up on the photos all day, but we had a blast. I also find it hilarious that the judging area was on the VIP deck where food is NOT allowed 😂 Some of my favorites? 🌮 @elmstreettacos birria dippers 🥩 @calle.tropical Philly cheese steak empanadas 🥞 @hotcakehughie breakfast sampler 🍫 @birdsong_cafe frozen hot chocolate 🍕 @tossnfirepizza birria pizza 🐑 @congoboxllc grilled lamb 🐖 @foodrescue_foodtruck pulled pork chips 🇵🇷 @mamacitas_kitchenandfoodtruck mofongo 🍗 @pbandjslunchbox buffalo chicken tots 🇻🇳 @phokouttahere summer roll 🍚 @jiwooskoreanfood beef bulgogi 🧀 @dgsmacandcheese gold standard mac and cheese 🧇 @ohcrepecny churro waffle … and so many more delicious items! . . #syracuse #syracuseny #visitsyracuse #syracusefood #foodie #foodies #foodiesofinstagram #cameraeatsfirst #cameradrinksfirst #upstate #upstateny #upstatenewyork #iloveny #newyorkfoodie #nyfood #nyfoodie #foodcritic #foodreview #getinmybelly #foodblogger #ilovemyjob #syrfoodtrucks #foodtruck #foodtrucks #foodtruckfestival #foodtruckbattle #eeeeats #eeeeeats

I love my job. Why? Because it involves things like checking out new bars and restaurants and taking photos of the deliciousness. It’s research for my piece in @cnymagazine’s food issue for July/August! Tonight I finally visited @tallmancocktail, the new cocktail lounge in @downtownsyracuse behind @thehopsspot. I had a sneak peek last fall, and had been waiting anxiously for a chance to visit when they opened. The wait was worth it! The place is charming, with modern meets vintage touches. And the cocktails are on point! I tried the Pineapple Express and Espresso Martini - two very different drinks but both beautifully executed. I also love that they do signature mocktails, and my friend loved her Dr. Zero Sour. For food we ordered some of the daily specials. My canapés were sweet potato skins topped with figs, goat cheese, bacon and a ginger honey drizzle. 🤤 My friend had the baguette with honey ham, gouda, mustard, and rosemary. Both were phenomenal. Plus @chefkikimurrel treated us to a special key lime/lychee cupcake for dessert. 🧁 I can’t wait to head back! Stay tuned for the next #CNYMagazine Issue to read all about Tallman and the other cocktail bars opening up in Syracuse! . . #syracuse #syracuseny #wheresyracusedrinks #visitsyracuse #syracusefood #foodie #foodies #foodiesofinstagram #cameraeatsfirst #cameradrinksfirst #upstate #upstateny #upstatenewyork #iloveny #newyorkfoodie #nyfood #nyfoodie #foodcritic #foodreview #getinmybelly #foodblogger #cocktails #cocktailbar #cocktaillounge #craftcocktails #ilovemyjob #drinksdrinksdrinks #drinkstagram #cocktailblogger

I am still soaking in everything from Friday’s launch party. It was bigger and better than I ever could have imagined… I was nearly in tears at how loved and supported I felt all evening long.

The best part about warmer weather is the ability to explore more hiking trails, waterfalls, and parks. One of my local favorites? Salmon River Falls in Pulaski, NY. Enjoy these photos from the falls during different seasons and different angles.
