Jacksonville-Restuarants:Gotta go with Chic-fil-a or The Loop. I might even borderline be obsessed with Chic-fil-a and I HATE that they dont have any in New York. boo :/ Homemade: Sorry mom but gotta go with Dad's Chili, its so good as soon as I come home and smell it, it takes me back!
Rochester- Restuarant: Dino BBQ. Ironic that I had to come to the north to find the best barbeque hands down? If youre ever in Rochester, Syracuse or New York City dear god get yourself a reservation! Homemade: SO unhealthy but Rochester is where I discovered Buffalo Chicken Dip and it reminds me so much of my roomate and I just hanging out or making it for special occasions! Yum I want to make some now!
Finland (Did an exchange year there) Rogbrod: Best translation I can give you is a rye bread..but it's nothing like Rye bread here in the US. I would pay an exorbitant amount of money to find this in the united states. My favorite homemade food might have to be my host moms lasagna dish or this chicken & rice number. Both were delish and I will never be able to replicate but that makes them that much more special.
San Fransisco-Practically spending every childhood summer in California made it feel like a second home. So for that I will always wish I could live there for their sough dough bread and the best pizza I've ever had at Zach's Pizza in Berkeley. If you've never been or are in the area-GO!
As promised-a great homemade easy salsa to add to any dish for some spice!
