One Local Summer 2008 – Week 7

Since I didn’t do too much original cooking this week, I had a hard time deciding what to submit for One Local Summer, so I decided to go with something I made earlier in the season. If there are any recipes that lend themselves to using local ingredients, this is one of them. John Hard, […]

Farm Fresh and Local Produce – 7/19/08

Let me stress before I begin that this was a very, very, very light farmer’s market week for me, for a couple reasons that I’ll get into a little later. I’m so proud of myself – I only spent $12 total today. Way to stick to the budget plan. We did get up and at […]

Whisk Wednesdays: Julienne Darblay

Man, even when I have the best of intentions I always, always, always end up being a day late with my entry to the Whisk Wednesdays blogging event. Maybe in my head I should call it “Whisk Tuesdays” so I get it in on time on Wednesdays. This time, I have a good excuse, I […]

Event: Taste of the Independents

Wow – am I behind in posts or what? This event actually took place on the 1st of May, and I got the pictures uploaded to Flickr immediately, but never got around to doing an actual writeup of the event. It was held at the Smith building on 4th, a perfect backdrop for the food. […]

Review: Bexley Monk

We have been buying gift certificates from the Dine Originals web site like crazy, and had a lot that were about to expire. One of the ones we had a certificate for was the Bexley Monk Restaurant & Bar in Bexley, OH – a place that I have heard about but have not had the […]

BBQ Ribs from Trader Joe’s

I’ve always been a big Trader Joe’s fan, as a matter of fact it’s my favorite grocery store in Columbus. There are always new things to try, awesome recipes using their ingredients, it’s just one of those places that just send my creativity vibe haywire from a culinary standpoint. If I have one complaint about […]

Bastille Burgers

As a matter of course, I don’t celebrate Bastille Day. But, in the same way that I don’t celebrate St. Patrick’s Day but engage in all of the traditions associated with it, I decided to make these burgers in honor of Bastille Day after seeing the recipe on Recipezaar. Yes, they are every bit as […]

Review: bonoTOGO

Update: bonoTOGO is closed, to be relocated at an as-of-yet unknown locale in the future. In the meantime, enjoy Bono pizza when Bill takes his mobile pizza oven to events all around Columbus. More information as it becomes available. bonoTOGO is a little startup pizza joint that occupies the Eleni Christina bakery space on Russell […]

Miniature Scotch Eggs

I’m a big fan of Scotch eggs – there’s just something about taking a hard boiled egg and wrapping it in sausage and bread crumbs and deep frying it that really does it for me. Sometimes, though, they’re so big that the whole thing becomes a giant gut bomb waiting to detonate. So when Denise […]

Turkey Philly Sandwich

With the gastric bypass surgery I had, it’s more important than anything to make sure that I get adequate protein in. So, for me – eating healthy IS eating protein, first and foremost. That’s why the Eat Healthy – Protein Rich food blogging event is right up my alley. For me, at least, fat intake […]
