On August 13, 2011 after countless visits and constant internet searching, I moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana. It was a full moon. Never in my life did I imagine myself living in the Red Stick City. Yet, almost a year later, here I am!

The purpose of this blog is not to write about why I am here (A Yankee from New England) but it is about what I’m doing here….A lot of eating!

I used to travel mostly outside the country but now that I reside in the Deep South, these days I’m either flying home to Rhode Island or whisking away for short weekend trips to cities I have never seen.

And I also want to reach out to my fellow Yankees in the South who want to share their experiences, positive or negative, good or bad. Everyone’s experience is unique and different so I would love to hear from people who have transplanted. Please don’t be shy!
