Celebrating Summer with the Bee’s Knees

Summer has officially started, and let's be honest, after the past few months, I'm guessing that we're all VERY much ready for a change in season. So what better than to mix up a refreshing summer cocktail like the oh-so-popular Bee's Knees? In case you missed the Instagram post, here's a clip of my husband's [...]

Fantastic Finds at the North Market

If you live in Central Ohio, you've likely had the pleasure of enjoying a stroll through the North Market on a Saturday afternoon, gathering a beautiful assortment of fresh meats, pasta, veggies, bread, wine.... the list goes on and on. The market is a Columbus staple, and despite the recent obstacles that COVID-19 has brought [...]

Loving Lindey’s (Especially During Quarantine Life)

We’ve just hit day #44 of our quarantine life -- and while we are VERY ready to get back out into the real world, we are still making the best out of it with our takeout rotation! This weekend, we pretended we were going out for a fun date night in German Village and [...]

Carry-Out (the new norm) from Natalie’s Coal-Fired Pizza

Wow -- crazy that we’ve almost completed week four of quarantine here in Ohio! While we are certainly missing our family outings due to this mandatory “stay-at-home” order, we’re doing everything possible to stay connected to our favorite Columbus restaurants. I’ll admit - we miss getting out, we miss people, we miss so many [...]

Cleveland’s West Side Market

I’m embarrassed to admit that as a Cleveland native, my first official trip to the historic West Side Market just happened about a week ago. Growing up, I had often heard of this popular Cleveland staple, but for one reason or another, had never explored it on my own.  My family and I found ourselves [...]

Afternoon Break at Dough Mama

When you’re four years old and you have a mid-day doctor’s appointment (and you’re REALLY good during it), you probably deserve a special treat :) At least that was our excuse to finally check out the popular bakery and cafe called Dough Mama, located in Clintonville on High Street.  Let me just say, how [...]

Pizza Nights are the Best Nights

We do A LOT of pizza in our house. Probably too much. It just seems to be the perfect crowd pleaser and although I am well-aware that it’s not always the healthiest option out there, I feel better knowing that we are at least hitting a few food groups. Another added bonus - my [...]

Sunday Morning Brunch at The Pearl

It’s quite difficult to dine out in Columbus these days without going to one of Cameron Mitchell’s establishments. Throughout the city, his restaurants continuously take the cake when it comes to atmosphere, service and of course, food. So, it wasn’t surprising when we had one of the best brunch experiences at his unique gastropub, [...]

Short North Date Night: The Table, Brothers Drake Meadery & Service Bar

There are those weeks when we just have to have a night out without the kids. I promise that I love them very much, but time away is sometimes much needed, especially during the long winter months of being cooped up in the house. So, when my husband and I discovered that three of [...]
