I had so much fun on an Indulge Boise tour (that I previously wrote about here) I was thrilled to write an article, and continue the conversation with founder Angela Taylor, for the winter edition of Edible Idaho. Exploring Boise: A Walking Culinary and Cultural Tour...

eating my way across sacramento

I love to go new places – to put on my walking shoes and explore the streets and shops and restaurants of a new city. This past weekend when I was in Sacramento for the International Food Bloggers Conference I had this opportunity and boy do I have some restaurants...

zoodle ramen

Slurp, slurp, slurp. Don’t mind me over here wiping the umami splatters off my computer screen as that’s how it should be. This Zoodle Ramen, like any ramen, is made to be eaten in slurpy happiness. And that’s what it was all about… creating a lighter version of...

Welcome to Bistro OneSix where four of my interests – writing, photography, cooking and, of course, eating – all converge. The recipes found here primarily focus on healthy, clean eating with a few indulgences now and then.

My food-centric website expanded when my husband and I had a vision to transform the alley behind our house into an edible, vertical garden. The SNOW Block Alley project was born and has taken on a vibrant life of its own, literally and metaphorically. We couldn’t be more excite and proud of what it’s become. We share lots of how-to and chronicle its progress here in hopes of helping inspire people to look at wasted space differently.

I’m a graphic designer and web department manager by profession and am fortunate to work with a lot of food companies, many in the natural and organic segment. I often get inspiration from the food stylist and photographers, not to mention the clients, that I work with.

I’m lucky to live in Boise, Idaho where not only is it beautiful, there’s four distinct seasons that influence the menu year around. We have great access to a wide array of fruits, vegetables and meats not to mention a blooming wine and craft beer industry. I’d wager to say that Boise is becoming a foodie city and I’m pleased to call it home.

Thanks again for joining me. I hope you enjoy!

Cheers, Linda
