Root Beer and French Toast

by Taylor September 29, 2014

“Are you doing anything this weekend?” That’s a common question asked among Fonties on a Friday afternoon. Answers usually involve hanging out with friends and going somewhere around town. That “somewhere around town” usually involves food! As far as food goes, I have some personal favorites here in St. Louis! One of my favorites is […]

My Favorite Things About Saint Louis

by Katie September 24, 2014

Despite the fact that I was born in Saint Louis and grew up only 45 minutes from the city (on the Illinois side), I never really got to know Saint Louis until I started at Fontbonne.

Scrambled Eggs

by Alumni Posts April 28, 2014

I went to Sam’s Club today and I bought a carton of delightful brown eggs. When I got back to my apartment, the first thing I did was make myself some scrambled eggs. Mmmm… they were really good.

Like I promised, this week is the sequel to my last post of suggested St. Louis restaurants.  Most of the places I suggested last week are typical types of food we could find at many places—many people have had pasta, burgers, and donuts before.  So today I would like to bring to your attention some […]

STL Restaurants

by Alumni Posts February 18, 2014

On Friday, I was treated to a Valentine’s Dinner at Guido’s Pizzeria and Tapas on The Hill (if you are not familiar with “The Hill,” it is the name for the Italian neighborhood in St. Louis).  The food was delicious, and the atmosphere was upscale without being overly priced.  I thought I would blog and […]

Free Frozen Yogurt!

by Alumni Posts December 12, 2013

Can you believe that there is an event to eat frozen yogurt for FREE? I participated in a “holiday preview” event to help FroYo, a frozen yogurt company, taste new holiday flavors, and then I got a whole cup of frozen yogurt for FREE after I ranked those flavors. Here is the rule for the […]

Food With Love

by Alumni Posts November 25, 2013

So several months ago, I joined this program with Goodies.co and Food With Love. Every month, for about $7, they send you a box of snacks. These are usually new products that are not yet sold in stores and they ask that you taste and review them. It’s fun! And honestly, the more I think […]
