I know I’ve said it before, but I think I should say it again so you know just how true of a statement this is: I am a huge snacker.
Mix that with my love of tradition, and I’m completely done for.
If you’ve been around Fooduzzi, you’ll know that I studied abroad in Italy. I was there for about three months, taking in all of the sights, sounds, and sustenance the “motherland” had to offer.
While I was there, I was lucky enough to have my family (mom, dad, brother, grandma, pap, aunt, and uncle) join me for a week-long visit. They flew into Venice, where I greeted them with open arms. We had a marvelous feast that night and slept like kings knowing that the Peduzzi clan was back together again.Read More
Call me hipster, call me quirky…but I LOVE funky little spots that are totally off the beaten path.
As I’m writing this, I’m sipping on the BEST tea from a funky little Pittsburgh coffee shop called “Big Dog” (wanna see it? I snapped a picture on Snapchat! Follow me [fooduzzi]!) In addition to serving some of the best tea I’ve ever had, Big Dog also has an oatmeal bar. AN OATMEAL. BAR. Like, where you can go and customize your own bowl of hot steamy love. WHAT?!
I mean, you can totally do that in your own kitchen, but eating it in a zany coffee shop makes the whole breakfast experience a little more special, don’tcha think?Read More
Let’s talk about kitchen fears, shall we?
Let me start off by saying that I lovelovelove to bake. There’s nothing more rewarding for me than handing a finely-crafted sweet treat off to a unsuspecting friend or family member on a special occasion. Birthdays, holidays, events, random days of particular kindness – I’ll literally bake for anything.Read More
It’s about to get reeeeeal hot in the 412 in the next couple of days, and I think this warmer weather calls for a bit of a celebration! Because, seriously, is there anything better than flip-flop, sundress, sunglasses weather? I think not.
To me, summer means picnics to attend, parties to host, cookouts to plan, and good times to have. And if you’re wondering how you can be the best attendee, host/hostess, planner, and/or good time-haver, I have but one word for you: dessert.
Seriously, who doesn’t love dessert? There’s just something so satisfying about finishing off a delicious meal with something sweet. Whether you’re a fresh fruit lover or an addict of all-things chocolate, nothing has a ring to it quite like “dessert time.”
This Stupid Awesome Saturday recipe roundup is all about DESSERT. Although the recipes below are made with whole foods, they are not anything short of delectable, indulgent goodness. Oh yes, these healthy treats are sure to satisfy anyone’s summer sweet tooth.
Hey there, folks! Have I got some news for you.
I moved into an apartment! A post-college apartment! A big-girl apartment!
And. This week marks the beginning of post-undergraduate life! Ahh! What is happening?!
[to say that I’m excited is a bit of an understatement.]
I love my birthday. Is that too narcissistic to admit? I really do.
My birthday is on December 18, and I actually started Fooduzzi on my birthday last year. Because of my birthday’s proximity to Christmas, I’m lucky enough to have an “Alexa’s Birthday Week” of sorts. I always get to see all of my family and friends. I get to partake in the delicious Christmas foods all week. It’s a glorious seven days.Read More
