Review: Los Galapagos

We’re always on the lookout for reasonably priced ethnic “blink and you’ll miss them” restaurants, so we were surprised to find out that we had one such gem right here on the West Side of Columbus. Located well off the beaten path (if you’re coming from downtown head down West Broad until you see the […]

Cream of Turkey and Wild Rice Soup

On the neverending quest to find soups and stews to warm us up in these chilly days of winter, we ran across this hearty soup on another food blog. We used turkey tenderloins from Whole Foods, which worked like a charm. It was thicker than we expected, but very hearty and filling. We’d make this […]

November 2008 Roundup

The more feeds I add to my blog reader, the longer it seems it takes me to get these roundups to you. On the bright side, at least I’m not missing out on some great recipes. I haven’t been posting much this past week because I’ve spent a good deal of time working on other […]

Review: G&R Tavern

This is a throwback to a warmer time of year, a place I visited last summer that I never got around to blogging about, but a place so special that it’s worth the half hour to hour drive from Columbus to visit. It’s a place of road food legends, covered by national media and a […]

Lazy Winter Dinner

One of the misconceptions people (especially readers of my blog) have about me is that I cook every meal from scratch, and don’t make “normal” meals like Hamburger Helper, franks and macaroni and cheese, etc. Nothing could be further from the truth. While it’s true that we do cook more often than a lot of […]

Food of Love: Mom’s Pasties

Some people have extreme difficulty expressing their emotions in ways that we can understand. I think we as humans have a strange need to tie love to those three little words – “I love you” when in fact there are so many more ways to express ones feelings. I think rather than shut people out […]

Three Meat Sliders on Brioche Buns

Have you ever been inspired to make a dish just based on a single ingredient? I came across this newish (have only been open for less than a year) bakery in Worthington called Holiday Baking Company that makes some delicious brioche and even yummier still, these tiny brioche rolls. Once I saw them, I couldn’t […]

Creamy Chicken and Dumpling Stoup

The weather has been so crappy here in Columbus that I’ve been all about the soups and stews this week. Just something tasty and hearty that warms you through and through – because if your house is like mine, certain rooms are nice and toasty while other ones are so nippy that you have to […]

Queen City Edition: Oleg’s Tavern

A few weeks ago, Paul and I made our semi-annual trip to Jungle Jim’s, that wonderful foodie destination that can beckon me to spend my whole month’s grocery budget in one fell swoop. We’ve taken to trying new restaurants in the Cincinnati area while down there, and this time was no exception. However, what did […]
