Not long ago, I heard about a group of artists who do the most wonderful thing to keep themselves inspired: they will navigate that city with a map of a different city. The idea, of course, being that sometimes, removing yourself from your natural element can help you see the world through new eyes. Well, to say I was enamored of this idea would be a bit of an understatement, and I have since tried to incorporate this idea into my pastry-eating and adventuring.
There is nothing worse then being stuck in traffic with no end in sight, but having a snack in hand can tremendously improve this situation. My boyfriend and I try to find as many hidden gems off the beaten path as possible. Sometimes this requires driving the opposite way, but in the end, even a ride over a questionable bridge (currently under repair) is worth it.
On a recent trip to Stowe, VT, we stumbled upon Holy Smokes BBQ Delicatessen in Turners Falls, MA. I was skeptical at first, Massachusetts is not exactly known for having the greatest BBQ, but with BBQ on the list of top 5 favorite foods for both of us, we are always willing to take a chance.

Being a nerd, whenever I’m busy, I tend to dig a hole for myself and become a cave-lady until I’ve plowed through my to-do list. As you can imagine, such a lifestyle makes it hard for me to always be in the know and stay on top of trends. Luckily, I’m surrounded by many wonderful foodies who keep me abreast of the things to try.
One such example is the cult following of gourmet food trucks. There were many food trucks that I wanted to try but I simply didn’t have the time to chase them around all over town. I was overjoyed when a foodie friend invited me to Off the Grid. The photos below document our little food adventure at Fort Mason last year. Please excuse the poor quality of the photos. I was using one hand to take photos with my phone while holding food in the other.
