Food AND Red Sox? Count me in, sister!

Let’s just get this out in the open: I like food. A lot. I don’t claim to be a foodie or to be extremely talented in the kitchen, but I do like to try. I’ve been experimenting more with healthier food options, but usually end up running into walls since I have the palate of a seven year old.

During some scouring of the internet a while back, I stumbled across a fabulous blog written by no other than the future Mrs. Lavarnway. Cooking in Red Socks (cute title, huh?) is Jamie Neistat’s blog about cooking healthy meal options for her and her catcher fiance.

The blog is great. She has new recipes up every few days with little stories to go with each one, like why she chose that meal and how she came up with the healthier alternative. For example, she hates Chicken Parmesean, but that it’s Ryan’s favorite. She found an alternative that was healthier (not fried!) and just as delicious. Way to go Jamie!

Recently she posted a recipe for a Raspberry Crumb Cake and I wanted to eat my computer. It looked that awesome.

My favorite part of the blog is that she does “Good Eats on the Road” where she mentions a different recipe for each ballpark that she’s been to. The woman is living my dream- traveling to every ballpark and eating awesome food!

So if you’re looking for something a little different than regular baseball talk, or if you just want a new food blog to follow, please check out Cooking in Red Socks!
