About MeHello, my name is Erica Gott, and I am traveling the world as a nomad for a year (or more) so that I can meet new people, see new places, and eat new foods. My passion has always been about eating good foods. Now I am following my dream of finding traditional foods all over the world. I’ll be writing posts from each place I visit, comparing the foods I find with the foods I grew up with in the United States. Subscribe to my blog and follow me around the world. Ask questions and I will do my best to answer them. This is going to be an exciting year!

Interesting n=1 observation. I caved and ate an entire Butterfinger candy bar 2 nights ago. That’s about 44 grams of carbohydrate, way more than I usually allow myself in an entire day, much less in one weak moment. Yesterday, I … Continue reading
This is the most delightful, awesome little truffle-like dessert thing. And I owe it all to Jamie Saal VanEaton, of Your Lighter Side. Thank you, Jamie! Disclaimer: Jamie used mascarpone cheese in hers; I used cream cheese. She used Truvia … Continue reading
I finally got to Whole Foods and bought some coconut manna, sometimes called coconut cream or coconut butter. It’s rather grainy, like a nut butter, and oh, so coconutty and delicious. My goal lately is to get more good fats … Continue reading
