2 foodies, 2 cubicles, 2 cities, one giant appetite.
Melissa (Miss Niss, right) and Angela (A-Tooch, left) met in February 2004 at Syracuse University. The two became close when they lived together (and ate their way through the city) for a semester in London. During Summer 2009 while Miss Niss was working in Boston and A-Tooch in New York City, The Foodies found themselves talking about food more often than anything else. “Let’s start a blog!” A-Tooch suggested. “We can post our foodie ramblings!” And so it began; two foodies at work posted their thoughts on random food topics with a heavy focus, of course, on cupcakes.
TFAW has evolved into a place for sharing much more than random thoughts. It is also host to favorite original and discovered recipes, highlights of local foodie events, and restaurant reviews from Boston, NYC and beyond.
Melissa has always been interested in experimenting with food. As a child, she loved to play chef at her play-dough restaurant and make diet coke popsicles. Today, she rarely follows a recipe completely from start to finish and enjoys adding her own personal touches. An extra splash of vanilla here or an extra sprinkle of spices helps make it her own. With her big sweet tooth, Melissa loves experimenting with dessert recipes and is always excited to try something new. At 10 years old, Melissa decided to become a vegetarian and has stuck by her decision ever since. She’s always looking for new veggie recipes. If you have any suggestions, please e-mail them! While she likes to experiment and wander from any given recipe, her favorite foods are the simpler ones. Melissa’s favorite foods are mac and cheese, pizza, bread and butter, and cupcakes. She’s been known to travel well out of her way for a cupcake!

Angela grew up in a family where food was often the topic of discussion. Weekend dinners included classic homemade dishes from her Italian father, featuring star ingredients like meat, cheese and pasta. Angela loves to cook and bake just as much as she enjoys going out and sampling new foodie creations/events in NYC. She is (almost) always willing to try anything once – most recently, Angela ate sea urchin. Also over time her sweet tooth has developed and along with that, a fondness of banana pudding and any peanut butter/ chocolate combination. Throughout her world travels, Angela has been exposed to a wide range of cuisines – her favorites being Mexican, Indian, BBQ and Cheese (yes, Angela considers cheese its own cuisine).
