big night out

Two weeks ago I think a record was broken right here in Cleveland: fastest escape from a house, down the drive and up, up and away. My husband and I are the proud title holders. It was our first night out solo since Olivia and as soon as my sister showed up to watch the […]

It’s back – the second annual Tour de Bruell. Like last year, Zack will be giving away some fun prizes, including a first to finish reward.

the accidental tour de bruell

Within the past month and a half, we have been to 3 out of Zack Bruell’s 4 restaurants. If I wasn’t so full from dining out, I’d add in Table 45 and complete his actual tour. Here’s a recap of our recent Bruell eats: On Saturday, I got together with my oldest and dearest friends […]

a night at the ritz, the day at the market (and someting for you, too)

Tourist in your own city. It’s a fun idea and we certainly try to explore new pieces and parts as often as we can. But overnight? Truthfully, I can’t say I’ve thought about spending a night in the city since we live fairly close to downtown. But after doing just that this past Friday night, […]

cook like chef andy dombrowski: fennel salad

Funny thing – I used to dislike fennel. And I don’t really know why. Perhaps it’s the anise smell (of which I never cared for and had a bad reaction to Sambuca once and therefore developed an aversion to anything that reminded me of it). This all changed when chef Jonathon Sawyer was at Bar […]

three nights on east 4th, mother’s day and eddie vedder

Night 1 This past Saturday, my family got together to celebrate Mother’s Day – 15 of us – at The Greenhouse Tavern. We sat downstairs, which my mom said made her feel like she was someplace in New York, in the middle of the hustle and bustle, peering into the open kitchen. While I didn’t […]

cook like zack bruell

With the opening of Chinato, I’ve now completed my Tour de Bruell (if only repeat visits to Parallax, L’Albatros and Chinato was a sport…).  And while I haven’t tried these dishes yet, based on my numerous chef Bruell experiences, I’m eager to light up the stove. Bruell’s Seared Sea Scallops with Thai Curry 10 Jumbo […]

clevelanders love their veggies (as in veggie u)

Like you, I believe in giving back. Whether it’s volunteering my time or the various organizations my husband and I  support, I think it’s important to help others because you never know when you could be the one that needs a helping hand. But I never put this blog to good use, and it’s been […]
