My Tasting Quiz

So yes – we’ve gathered that I am super picky, but there may be some foods that I love/hate that surprise you! So let’s see how much you know (or think you know!). Take this quiz to find out…...

A Simple Question: Why?

The first thing anyone asks when I tell them about my odd diet is “why?”. Honestly, I don’t have an answer for that. People are quick to blame my parents, saying that they should have forced me to try different foods as a child. But my sister and I...

How It All Started

I’ve been picky my whole life (shocker!), but I never really thought of myself as being so crazy picky until college started. Eating in the dining halls at UC Santa Barbara was a nightmare. Some days, I would literally have a bowl of sunflower seeds and a crinkle cookie...

Tony’s Pizza Napoletana

My Italian dad is super specific about the pizza and pasta that he eats. We were super excited to try Tony’s in North Beach, San Fransisco. Tony’s margherita pizza was a world pizza cup winner in Naples, Italy and the chef only makes 73 of these per day (if...

Mizza

Growing up, my sister and I would visit my grandma in Santa Barbara every summer for one week and she would never fail to bring us to Pizza Mizza. Pizza Mizza has since rebranded with a new location downtown as Mizza, so I was super excited to bring my...

During my senior year of high school, my friends and I made it a point to make the hour-long drive to San Fransisco and try new restaurants each weekend. Home SF was one of the cafes that was at the top of our list because of the trendy atmosphere...

Screamin’ Mimis

If you’ve ever read a book in the Judy Moody series, then you might have heard of Screamin’ Mimi’s. The author, Megan McDonald, lives in Sepastopol, California and incorporated her favorite ice cream shop into this iconic series. I grew up loving the Judy Moody books and always enjoyed...

Old Chicago

Now, I’m not typically the biggest fan of a deep dish pizza, but this one is simply different. I also must preface that I’ve never been to Chicago and tried authentic deep dish pizza from the deep dish pizza capital of the world, but I do still love this...

Lucky Penny

This pizza is advertised as a pretty classic margherita pizza, but it was super spicy IMO. To no surprise, I took the tomatoes off, but the sauce itself must have had some sort of kick to it. The olive oil drizzle was a nice touch, though. The cheese was...

Flour House

When I visited San Luis Obispo, every single one of my SLO friends recommended Flour House. We got four pizzas for four people and, of course, I ordered their classic margherita pizza. This pizza was made with a mixture of fior de latte mozzarella and mozzarella di bufala (not...
