Review: Chasi’s Place BBQ

Update: Chasi’s has moved to a building near the corner of James and Main (technically on Main, just east of James, right by the motel) on the East side. Keep an eye out for the sign and the smoker outside. This past weekend was a great one – one full of new food discoveries. Just […]

Event: Columbus Taco Truck Tour ’09

When the folks over at Taco Trucks Columbus announced that there would be a tour of the west side taco trucks, my husband and I were stoked – after all, this was our side of town, these are all trucks that we visit regularly, and how often does it happen that a fun event happens […]

Review: Bayleaf India Bistro

Ever since my go-to Indian place, Sher E Punjab, closed a few months ago, I’ve been searching for a replacement. When I’ve asked friends and people I respect for recommendations, one of the names that came up over and over again was Bayleaf India Bistro, which is located in the former Ted’s Montana Grill space […]

On this go round, the book chosen was Gale Gand’s Brunch!: 100 Fantastic Recipes for […]

Grandview=Foodie Central? Who Knew?

When I heard a few weeks ago that BonoPizza would be making appearances on Friday nights in the parking lot of the carryout store on 3rd and Northwest, I got super duper excited. I mean, I made no secret of my love for their pizza last summer. Unfortunately, the date slipped my mind, so I […]

Review: Salvi’s Bistro

Years ago, when we lived in Hilliard (and later on, Dublin), Salvi’s was a restaurant we used to visit quite often. It was, and still remains, a great alternative for the Olive Garden crowd. As a rapidly approaching middle aged couple with no children, we don’t usually need to consider small things like whether or […]

Creamy Southwest Chicken Pasta

My “go-to” dish when I just need to whip something together on a busy night is usually some form of pasta. This dish is loosely inspired by the Southwestern Mac and Cheese at Surly Girl Saloon, made with a bunch of things I already had in my pantry and fridge. I’m submitting it to be […]

Fromage Fort

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’ve got a serious cheese fixation – I’ve rarely met a cheese I don’t like. What this means for me is that at any given time, I’ve got a cheese drawer of cheese bits – packages of half eaten cheese that usually go bad before I […]

Cheese Blintz

Every year around Passover, I get a craving for traditional Jewish foods, even though I’m not Jewish myself. This cheese blintz recipe fired on all cylinders for me, and is definitely a keeper. Cheese Blintzes recipe courtesy Marcie Cohen Ferris from “Matzoh Ball Gumbo” For the crepe batter: 3 large eggs 1 1/2 c. all-purpose […]
