rocco’s new gospel

One month in to the New Year – are you still on track with your resolutions? I’m not. Mine, like many, was to get healthy and lose the rest of my baby weight. I’m not doing bad – but I’m certainly not there yet. I like to think I’m smart with what I eat – […]

the incredible shrinking chef

2012 is off to a very good start for the Whalen family. And last night, I felt like we were a part of that very proud, very loving family. If you have seen Rocco lately, then you know there’s now a lot less of him to love. That’s because he has made some serious life […]

cook like rocco whalen: two perfect sauces to accompany grilled satay

I love food prepared on the grill – but, I have a fear of the grill itself. Not sure why as nothing dramatic has ever happened. So instead, I’ll happily prepare anything to get it grill-worthy, then pass off to Jamie who is the designated  master griller for our household. Like many of you, we’ll […]

breakfast with santa

For the second year in a row, we went to Fahrenheit for Breakfast with Santa. I think I was more excited than my two-year-old for this outing. Granted, my overall experience with kids and Santa is rather limited. But I can’t imagine someone doing a better job than Rocco Whalen and the entire staff at […]

cook like rocco (lamb burgers)

Regular readers know I’m a huge fan of chef Rocco Whalen of Fahrenheit. With that personality of his and infectious passion for our city, how can you not be? And now I have two more reasons: his recipe for lamb burgers and some fun random bits of quirkiness he shares with us at the end of this […]

cook like rocco whalen

I simply adore Rocco Whalen. And it’s not because he’s a talented chef or that Fahrenheit is one of our favorites (had another fabulous dinner a few weeks ago with some lovely ladies, try the seared sea scallops and sinfully good Kobe beef sliders, which Rocco let us sample), but because his passion for his […]

dining out with little ones

I’ve seen the looks. I’ve heard the comments. We’ve felt the tension as we walk past your table and our party of three is seated next to you. You’re out for a nice evening and the last thing you want is some screaming kid about to ruin your night out. Or worse, we are seated in your […]

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 […]

breakfast with santa, plus how you can play santa

When I was a little girl, my parents would take me and my siblings downtown at Christmas to see Santa and Mr. Jingeling at Higbee’s followed by lunch at Silver Grille then a cookie from Hough Bakery. Each year would warrant us getting all dressed up and piling in the station wagon where I could barely […]

rocco whalen’s crab cakes

Let the season of over eating begin (we’ll all vow to work it off in January, right?). Here’s a super easy appetizer from Rocco Whalen, chef/owner Fahrenheit. Good to bring to a party or for your own holiday gathering. And speaking of Fahrenheit, they are hosting breakfast with Santa on Dec 13 (two seatings). We’re […]
