Touring (And Sampling) My Way Through the Taza Chocolate Factory

Marshall is Hungry fell dormant after I moved to Boston but I’ve been blogging elsewhere- you can read my posts here, here, and here!   When I was a kid, my favorite part of Mr. Rogers were the segments when we got to visit a factory and see how things were made, so when I heard...

In Search of the Perfect Breakfast Sandwich

In Search of the Perfect Breakfast Sandwich

I have a confession to make.I have fallen in love with the breakfast sandwich – the true Philly breakfast sandwich cooked in front of you at a nameless food cart and served on a hoagie roll for no more than $3 a pop. This discovery was made on a particularly hung-over Friday when coming out...
