Review: The Breakfast Barn

Tucked away in the part of town that I often refer to as the “culinary wasteland” (hey, I live here on the West Side, so I can call it anything I want!), is a little place that I’ve driven past hundreds of times, but have never seen fit to find my way into. But after […]

Review: La Casita

La Casita is one of those places that I’ve been to tons of times, but have never really sat down and written a review of. It’s our regular “go to” place for Mexican in Columbus, with some unique dishes that I haven’t been able to find anywhere else. So, wanting to make it official, I […]

A Great Lunch in 15 Minutes or Less

Just a quick post about today’s lunch – this past weekend, we went to Carfagna’s, and stocked up on a bunch of Italian meats and cheese from the deli – hot and sweet Calabrese Sopressata, Mortadella, Hot Cappicola, etc. I finally got around to making the sandwiches today, moreso as an afterthought rather than something […]

TWD: Pecan Sour Cream Biscuits

Since I’ve been feeling my cooking oats again recently, I’ve decided to join in on an ongoing food event called Tuesdays with Dorie, in which a group of aspiring bakers work their way through Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan one recipe at a time. This week’s recipe was Dorie’s Pecan Sour […]

Cheese and Tommytoe Toastie

The last few weeks has been all about eating “safe” foods – in other words, old familiars that sit well, or new things that I have found agree with my new stomach configuration. This has been an old standby for the past couple of weeks – a cheese and tommytoe toastie (I know you Fry […]

Admin Note: More Medical Woes

Just a quick note to let you all know that I’m not dead…yet. I’m having major setbacks with healing from my surgery, and will be heading to the ER and probably the operating room later today. I’m not sure how long I’ll be in the hospital – could be 2 days, could be 6 weeks, […]

October 2007 Roundup

Oops – when going through my files, it occurred to me that although I wrote up the October 2007 roundup, I never got around to posting it. So here it is – better late than never. In savory recipes, Tahini Bread from 1x umruhren bitte, German Potato Salad from 24 Boxes, Oktoberfest Crostini from A […]

December 2007 Roundup

I’m really late getting this roundup out, but the past month has been chaotic, to say the least. The past week or so since I’ve been home has been all about trying to find a doctor to treat a minor surgical complication (no luck yet), and figuring out what is OK and what isn’t OK […]
