Welcome to SM Traphagen!
There is history, thought, and great stories woven into every food recipe, every plate served, and every new restaurant opened that gives us a glimpse into someone else’s life and culture. We are all connected on this tiny hamlet of a planet—and many times it’s food that connects us. I offer you a chance to explore great healthy recipes; unbiased reviews of restaurants; read my weekly thoughts, essays, and interviews from prominent individuals across the globe, and escape to wondrous places with my short fiction stories. My food reviews are WNY-centric, with special travel series food reviews written twice a year. So welcome.
