Well hello there friends! Long time, no see!

If you’ve been wondering where the new posts have been for the past week, they were on hold while I took a trip to the east coast.

I started off my trip to New York & Washington DC hosting a Satellite Media Tour with PLUS Media all about Friendsgiving. You can check out one of the segments online now!

Tips for the Perfect Friendsgiving with Sarah Scoop

Following the media tour, I ventured into New York City to check out some of the best spots to eat in the city. I compiled all of my favorites into an NYC City Guide: Where to Eat, Stay & Play!

After leaving NYC, I headed down to Washington DC to eat my way through yet another city!

I’m now on a plane back to home sweet sunny San Diego. As soon as I arrive home I’ll be heading straight into the kitchen! I have so many awesome recipe ideas that I can’t wait to create and share with you all for Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving & Thanksgiving leftovers!

In the meantime, I’m so excited to share this delicious Mediterranean twist on spaghetti squash. It’s perfect for Meatless Monday & could even be served as a fun twist on a side dish for your Friendsgiving or Thanksgiving dinner!

Last year I served Jalapeno Popper Spaghetti Squash at my Friendsgiving celebration and it was a huge hit!
