The year 2013 waited patiently for me to get my act together and now, with the arrival of Spring, she has taken my face in her hands, looked directly into my eyes and said,

“Breathe deep and clear your head.  This is really happening.”

For me, this time of year is when I am inspired to eat better, cook more, entertain and most of all, travel.  All of that involves food.  Yes, by now I am sure you know that I love great food.  I love to talk about it, I love to cook it and most of all, I love to eat it.  So when I dream about traveling, I dream about eating delicious foods in foodie destinations around the world.  Do you feel the same way?

What if I said that you could win an all-inclusive foodie vacation to one of the places listed below, would you get excited?

  • Paris, France
  • Rome, Italy
  • Hong Kong
  • Frankfurt, Germany
  • Cancun, Mexico
  • Bangkok, Thailand

If you aren’t excited yet, then maybe I should take your face in my hands and speak to you the words that Spring has been speaking to me:

“Breathe deep and clear your head.  This is really happening!”


Out of these 6 destinations, my first choice would be Rome, Italy.  My parents are headed to Italy for 5 weeks this spring and my mom’s food pictures always make me drool.  She has stories about fresh pesto pizza, homemade carbonara, strawberry risotto and fantastic corner markets stocked with local ingredients.

Where would you choose to go?  I would love for you to tell me where, and why, in the comments below.
