Arlington Food Blogger Profiled — The Fairfax Times takes a look at Arlington mom Colleen Levine and her natural food and cooking blog, Foodie Tots. A government affairs consultant by trade, Levine has amassed 2,500 Twitter followers by focusing her blog on kid-friendly, healthy cooking. The recipe for spaghetti caprese — part of Levine’s effort to promote “meatless Mondays” — looks especially appetizing.

    I remember not long ago when friends from NYC would complain about the lack of good pizza in the DC area. Now it seems like every new restaurant is pizza!

      Do people from NYC ever not complain about the food in DC? Or the Metro, or the bars, or the clubs…blah blah blah.

      Chris- Your dog has a TERRIBLE way of greeting other dogs lol

      But I must admit he is a cute dog…. that Nino boy 🙂

  • Chris

    The big one, its a good picture

    • Right after this photo was taken your dog sauntered over to me and started licking my face while making muddy paw prints on my shirt. I guess that was punishment for catching him (her?) in an intimate moment.

      But seriously, I love this photo and your dog is awesome.

  • Chris

    Thank you, its a male and his name is Nino.

  • Doug in Arlington

    Question about bulldogs, I heard they are good dogs but can be very smelly at times, any truth about this?
