Mushroom & Israeli Couscous Salad

The restaurant Lemonade is pretty popular in Southern California and is sometimes our only option for a quick lunch while on the go. One of our favorite salads at Lemonade is the Mushroom & Israeli Couscous salad. So instead of paying money each time for it, we decided to try and recreate it. Check out the recipe below:

Florence, Italy

Florence | Firenze | The Best

We can officially say both of us have been to Florence, but separate times.  K was able to study abroad in this beautiful city during her junior year at UCSB.  Now T got to experience it for herself.  All those years k talked about how much she loved this city and T now knows why.  And for our readers – here is why:

Day Trip to Siena, Italy

T.W.O. had the opportunity to take a day trip to Siena for business.  Short on time and unlucky weather, T. was able to see the famous square where the Palio takes place each year, have a proper lunch, tour the Duomo, wonder the small streets of the Tuscan town and most importantly get a gelato! Here are some snapshots from her adventure.

ROMA, ITALIA

Most recently, half of T.W.O. got to travel to Rome for work – first time for T and it won’t be the last! Though only one of us went, that didn’t mean K wasn’t there with her in spirit. Like always – an itinerary was set and restaurants were researched.  Here are some of the highlights of the trip!

London….We’re Back!!

Cheerio London! It took us only a year to get back and this time we were able to see some neighborhoods and sites we didn’t get to explore last time.  We did revisit a couple favorite spots – Borough Market + Big Ben!  (Standard Tourist Photo Op)  The Borough Market wasn’t in full swing last year since we went between Christmas & New Years.  This time we got the real taste of it- Friday lunch hour mayhem.  And boy did we have fun!  Speaking of boys, there were a lot of them on their lunch hour  grabbing a bit to eat with their mates.  Continue reading “London….We’re Back!!”

Newcastle upon Tyne Eats

Pleased to Meet You

On our last night in Newcastle, we stopped in this establishment to grab a glass of wine and see it for ourselves since we read great reviews! This place has three different sections – The Main Bar, The Restaurant and Viceroy.  Unfortunately the Viceroy was closed, but we got to enjoy the other two spots.  The bar scene was a happening scene, especially during happy hour when they had great deals on cocktails.  Continue reading “Newcastle upon Tyne Eats”

Newcastle upon Tyne, England

Newcastle Upon Tyne is located on the Tyne River in Northwest England.  We ended up in Newcastle because Trigere had a conference, so it was ‘worked’ into our trip.  We took the train from Edinburgh to Newcastle – 1.5 hours of coastline and rolling hills. It was gorgeous! In this post we will be featuring a glimpse of the city and the sites we saw.  It’s a great city, but we saw enough of it and will be exploring other English towns next time we are in the area!
