Hey all!

  1. My name’s Michelle and I live right between Baltimore and DC

  2. A bucketlist goal of mine is to go to all the states, and I have just Alaska left! In my blog ( I like to mimic unique things I’ve had on my travels throughout the United States because I think some dishes and drinks are too good to have just once, and I also want to share travel tips so other foodies know where to get the best eats in different cities.

  3. My site just launched last week, check it out! I’m on instagram @eatlikeyoureonvacation–let’s be friends :blush:

  4. I got to ride on a Zamboni during a Capitals game once to wave at the crowd. (An Olympian was supposed to be the special guest but they didn’t show and I talked the Zamboni driver into taking me instead.) :rofl:


Hi Michelle! Wow, just Alaska is left?? That’s amazing! And I think that is HILARIOUS that you replaced an olympian on a zamboni. :rofl: :rofl:

Hi Krista! Your food looks DELICIOUS! I was drooling over the ricotta cookies, yum! Super happy that you found this forum… I hope you’ll feel comfortable asking questions and offering support here. No peas and celery, huh?! Do you use them as ingredients in your recipes?

Yay, so glad you’re here, Amy! I love your Instagram feed. I can’t believe you’ve only been blogging for a year… your content is incredible!

I love your fun fact!!

  3. I’ve been blogging for four years, but rebranded to this one two years ago.
  4. Although I live in Canada, all of our grown children have settled in the States, so we visit as often as we can in our motorhome.

Hi @Cathy ! Welcome to EBC! Can’t wait to check out your blog. I’m curious to hear how your rebrand went… I hope it was seamless!

We have a motorhome, too! I always love to meet others who love to travel around the states. We are actually plan to drive ours into Canada this summer for the first time. I can’t wait!

Please feel comfortable starting discussions if you ever need advice on anything!
