HB Travels: Barcelona

I’ve got to be honest – after such an incredible week in Italy (catch up with recap one and two) and knowing our trip was ending in Paris, I was originally feeling a bit bleh about going to Barcelona. I knew very little about the city and just didn’t think it sounded as exciting as our

I Made It: Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cake Batter Blondies

Ever since re-making my famous Cake Batter Blondies, I kinda sorta can’t stop. Thankfully I have my doormen to pass them off to, so I’m scoring brownie blondie points while simultaneously avoiding the “Fall 15.” Strategy, people. Anyway, I figured I should at least do you guys the favor of squeezing in a pumpkin variety before

NYC Restaurant: Atwood {Brunch}

Ever since moving to the Upper East Side in January, I’ve had so many people ask about my favorite places to eat around my neighborhood. But for some reason – maybe out of habit or just because I always go there for work + social life – I always end up dining out in the downtown area

I Made It: Cake Batter Blondies

In December 2010 I invented a little dessert called Cake Batter Blondies. (Check out that amazing photography, HA) The other day I was talking to Jessi about Hungry Blonde and she was like, “Gracie – why the heck haven’t you re-introduced your Cake Batter Blondies?!” I sat there literally dumbfounded at the fact that the

HB Travels: Capri, Italy

So, where were we? Oh right, wrapping up in Positano. After a long, stuck-in-the-rain-with-all-of-our-luggage day leaving Positano, Sydney and I were THRILLED to arrive in the destination we were most excited about visiting – the island of Capri. Right when we got off the ferry, we were greeting by a kind man from Hotel Punta

From Girl Meets Life To Hungry Blonde

This is a post I never thought I’d write…not here, at least. The HB blog thus far has been entirely food-focused, lighthearted, and not exactly wordy like my old blog, Girl Meets Life. But the truth is that I should have written this a long time ago. I’m not even sure what my purpose with this post

Apple Cinnamon N'oatmeal - oatmeal minus the oats! Paleo and Vegan

I Made It: Apple Cinnamon N’Oatmeal (Plant-based & Whole30!)

Hey there, friends! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? If you follow me on Instagram, you probably noticed that I was traveling throughout most of September. After a long weekend in Vegas for a bachelorette party and a quick 36 hours back in New York, I headed to Europe for two weeks (and don’t worry

What I Eat In A Day: Kale & Cookies

Something I’ve always wanted to do with Hungry Blonde (but have failed thus far) is share with you what my everyday, behind-the-scenes eats look like. Because let’s be real – the chocolatey, cheesy, fried goodness I often share on the HB Instagram isn’t what I’m eating on a daily basis. As much as I love

CACHAPA - Streets BK

NYC Restaurant: Streets

In the past (almost) 6 years of living in New York, I’ve dined at my fair share of incredible restaurants. I must say, though, that I do tend to get stuck in a rut when it comes to stepping outside my usual go-to cuisines. I know what I like…what can I say? But then a dining
