Global Girl’s Blog is moving!

the global palate logo

It’s official! Global girl’s blog is officially moving. This move is way overdue and has been in the works for quite some time. For those of you who follow this blog regularly, a couple of changes will be taking place:

1. The URL will be changing from https://globalgirlbkk.wordpress.com/ to http://theglobalpalate.com/

2. The title of the blog will now be The Global Palate instead of Global Girl’s Blog.

3. The look and style of the blog will also be changing.

What I want to stress is that although the URL, the title and the look of the blog have changed, the content will not change. I will still be blogging about the things I love, namely food and travel. Global Girl has been a fun experience and if you are a follower of my blog I want to say thank you!!! I hope that you will continue to follow and read the new blog, The Global Palate. This move should take place later today or tomorrow. Most of your email addresses have transferred to the new site but please check out the new site and make sure to click subscribe if you’d like to continue to follow my blog.

I hope you love the new look of the new website, The Global Palate!

Thanks for reading!

The best key lime pie in the entire world

key lime pie

Oh em gee. You guys. This dessert. Amazing.

My brother always tries to convince me that key lime pie is not worth ordering when we go to restaurants. He thinks it’s a waste of a dessert. He says key lime pie is boring and that there are so many better desserts out there. He feels the same way about tiramisu. And sometimes, he might be right. Key lime pie is on plenty of restaurant dessert menus and his feeling is, once you’ve tasted one key lime pie, you’ve tasted them all. Now I happen to love key lime pie but I do see his point. Or at least I SAW his point. And then I tried the key lime pie at Fogarty’s in Key West and I quickly realized, not all key lime pies are created equal.

Whole grain rotini with balsamic marinated chicken and asparagus

pasta 1

This recipe is super simple, fairly healthy, and does not require a lot of ingredients. It’s rare to find a pasta dish that is both healthy and comforting and although portion control is always important, I didn’t feel too guilty going back for seconds (read: thirds). That’s a winning pasta dish in my opinion. Continue reading

Cruising to The Bahamas

cruise 1

A little over a week ago I embarked upon my first cruise! Admittedly I was a little nervous about it. Would I feel trapped? Would seeing only ocean with no signs of land freak me out? Would I get sea sick? And, perhaps the most important question of all, would the food on the ship be good? I’m happy to report: no, no, no & YES!!! This could be dangerous. I think I could easily become one of those people that lives on cruise ships, that is, if my financial situation didn’t hinder me. I’m not kidding when I tell you we met someone that was going on his 1,000 something cruise.

Seriously though, what a great time. I spent eight blissful days aboard The Grandeur of the Seas, part of Royal Caribbean’s vision class of ships, as it cruised through Florida and The Bahamas. What a fun way to travel! I’m lucky I happen to enjoy flying, but for those of you who don’t, cruising could be your new best friend! People aren’t lying when they say cruise ships are basically like floating cities. The possibilities are endless. Continue reading

February Bookshelf

I’m a little late in posting about the books I read for February but I just got back from an 8 day cruise vacation! My first cruise ever! It was completely wonderful and I’ll be posting about it soon so stay tuned but that is the reason for my absence on the blog as of late.

Anyway, I am keeping up with my reading resolution for this year and the books I chose to read in February were good ones! I finished The Kingmaker’s Daughter, which I started in January and reviewed last month. I also started and finished D is for Deadbeat and The Kitchen House. I am currently reading Mindless Eating, which is not really a diet book as much as it is an “awareness” book. It’s been enlightening so far. I’ll review that one at the end of this month but here are my reviews for February:
