Destination: Cleveland

We’re about to head out on the road to go to the Queensryche concert in Cleveland tonight. I had been meaning to make a trip to the West Side Market to stock up on ‘rogies and bridies, but I just found out they’re closed today. Instead, I’ll have to get my ‘rogie fix by stopping […]

Burrito Fix at La Bamba

Update July 2012: The campus location (as well as the chain’s other locations) have closed. They will definitely be missed! Update: The Georgesville Rd. location has closed, but you can still get La Bamba at their OSU Campus location. I have a confession to make. I have become a burrito junkie. I make my poor […]


I must be blessed. For the second time in a couple of weeks, my husband took charge of cooking tonight, this time making Dolmades from scratch, using this Recipezaar recipe. We ended up with more meat than we had grape leaves, so he rolled the rest into meatballs and cooked them along with the dolmades. […]

Events 11/11/06 to 11/18/06

Honestly, with the growing season over, and the holiday season not quite here yet, there’s not too much going on in Columbus that’s related to food. Here’s the few items I came up with for this week: Today (Saturday the 11th) is North Market Turkey DazeĀ from 9am-5pm. “The North Market honors America’s founding holiday with […]

Friday Roundup 11/10/06

There’s a new Columbus food blogger in town – Jule from The Food Mill. If you get a chance, check out her site. It’s fairly new, but has some good recipes and food porn. I still say that we locals all need to get together for a potluck. Maybe sometime in mid-December? Any one else […]

Carnitas Topped Arepa

Oh. my. God. I think I’ve just died and gone to Heaven. I, through sheer luck, stumbled on a combination of different flavors that are absolutely sublime. By themselves they aren’t stellar, but the way this all came together – I must have more. Must. It might just be a subjective thing, but this combination […]

WBW #27: Icy Desserts

I’ll be the first to admit. I’m not much of a wine drinker. My palate interpets pretty much all the wine I taste into one category – blech. You know how they say that some people think that cilantro tastes like soap? To me, pretty much all wine tastes like vinegar. I get that there […]

Gruyere, Apple and Ham Panini

Inspired by this recipe for Gruyere Apple Grilled Cheese at Just Braise, and the Paris Bistro Grilled Hot Wrap (yummy honey wheat tortilla with ham, brie, green apples, spinach, tomatoes, red onions and honey mustard) from Camille’s, I was craving something that had elements of both, but was something completely different. I decided on a […]

Anniversary Dinner

My 10-year wedding anniversary was on November 1st, and my husband and I celebrated with a nice quiet dinner at home. Nothing fancy, just a nice three course meal over a bottle of ice-style wine (more about that on Wednesday), with a little candlelight to set the mood. We were looking for a mild-tasting cheese […]
