Date Night with California Pizza Kitchen

A few weeks ago, the PR team behind California Pizza Kitchen emailed me asking if I would be interested in trying items from their new fall menu. To say I’m excited to partner with them for this post is an understatement. First things first, I define the word “foodie”. I recently just started to get really into cooking, which is a huge deal.

If you read my last post, I briefly mentioned a newfound focus on inspiring others to take the same steps to a healthier lifestyle. Talk about perfect timing.

Let’s Play Catch-Up!

Well, if you haven’t noticed, I’ve been taking an extended break from writing Pittsburgh & Pearls. I just wanted to take a minute to fill you all in on what’s new in my life, and some plans for the future.  Sarah, what’s going on? Where have you been? To be completely honest with you, 2016 has been the busiest year of my life. Spring semester has always been a bit crazy for me, but I never expected to transition into my first actual not-so-summer Summer. Ask any college student: internships are a lot of work.… View Post
