Review: Caffe DaVinci

In every restaurant I’ve reviewed, no matter what the type, I’ve always tried to look at the positives. Maybe I’ve turned into an Italian food snob. Maybe I expected too much. But unfortunately, I was unable to find a single thing about this restaurant that I liked. Caffe DaVinci is the next incarnation of the […]

Review: Grill & Skillet

My family has a weekend tradition – this year, after heading to the farmers markets on Saturday mornings, we’ve been stopping at area restaurants for breakfast, or if it’s been late enough when we got there, brunch or lunch. Grill and Skillet has come recommended to me by a couple of different people, so we […]

OLS Week 7: Fun with Frittata

Remember last month, when I told you about my frittata nightmare? And that I wasn’t sure what the problem was? Well, it turns out that the problem WAS the cookware. I picked up a nice oven-safe nonstick omelette pan from, and it worked beautifully. Because for this edition of One Local Summer, I ended […]

March 2009 Roundup

I’m not sure if any of you are aware of the method of generating these roundups. I have 5,000+ rss feeds for food blogs in my feed reader, and usually just save the recipes that sound interesting to me. Believe it or not, even without every blog posting every day, it’s not unusual to open […]

Farm Fresh and Local Produce 7/1/09

Wow, I really have been horrible about updating this month, haven’t I? I guess in a way it’s bad, and in a way it’s good. It’s not like I have stopped eating or going out or anything. I’ve just got so preoccupied about experiencing everything that I haven’t found the time to actually write about […]

OLS Week 5: Soul Food

This week’s edition of One Local Summer was entirely inspired by collard greens I saw last week at the Elizabeth Telling Farm stand at the North Market Farmers Market. Collard greens are one of my favorite things about summer, and when I think of collard greens, I think of soul food. So this week is […]

Farm Fresh and Local Produce 6/27/09

I think I’ve finally figured out why it’s been taking me longer than usual to make my Saturday morning farmers market run – tons of road construction on our highways here on Columbus means I have to take so many detours, that it takes me twice as long to travel from one market to another. […]
