Holiday Celebrating (with kids) at Barcelona in German Village!

I will tell you that, before last week, I have never once thought that it might be a good idea to take our kids to dinner at one of German Village’s finest restaurants, Barcelona Restaurant & Bar. It’s just not one of the first places that comes to mind when I think of ‘kid-friendly’ [...]

The Easiest Cheese Board

If I told you that I built this beautiful cheese board using ingredients from the one and only Target, would you believe me? While I appreciate Target’s grocery section because it provides the perfect opportunity for me to grab that needed gallon of milk while I’m stocking up on wardrobe essentials, I have to [...]

Pat & Gracie’s: Our Newest Reason to Visit Clintonville

If you’ve had the pleasure of visiting Clintonville, you know that it’s packed with adorable shops, restaurants and gastro-pubs. It’s the perfect place to visit if you’re in need of a really good meal or a refreshing craft beer, and the neighborhood is filled with young families making it an extremely kid-friendly spot (bonus!).   [...]

Saturdays are for Cioppino!

So, most of you know that one of my favorite things IN THE WORLD to do is to go out to dinner. With kids, without kids, it really doesn’t matter. I know that it may not always be the healthiest or most economic option, but there just really isn’t anything like trying out a [...]

Family night out at J. Liu in Worthington

I’m embarrassed to admit that it’s been quite a while since we’ve taken the kids out to dinner. Our warm, sunny days have now been traded out with quite chilly, rainy ones, it’s November in Ohio, and we’re just more likely to sit on the couch these days rather than venture out on the [...]

Worthington Farmer’s Market

If it’s Saturday morning, you’re likely to find us in downtown Worthington, enjoying the ever so popular Worthington Farmers Market. This year-round event takes place from 8 a.m. - 12 p.m.  on North High Street (May - October) -- and moves to the The Shops at Worthington Place during the winter months (November - [...]

Z Cucina

My first encounter with Z Cucina in Dublin (Bridgepark) was very hurried and quite honestly, pretty unexpected. I actually had plans to meet friends at another restaurant in the area. I was literally running down the sidewalk with my one-year-old as it was the middle of February, and we were both absolutely freezing. I [...]

Christmas in July

Who says that you can only celebrate Christmas once a year? If you venture into Worthington Hills (our fantastic neighborhood) mid-summer, you’ll quickly learn that this is not the case. Every July (for almost 10 years now), my husband and I have thrown the BEST Christmas in July party. This party is no joke [...]

Carsonie’s

If you venture to Lane Avenue in Upper Arlington (next to The Shops on Lane Avenue), you’ll come across a local Italian favorite called Carsonie’s. The atmosphere is bustling and the energy throughout the restaurant is exciting and fast-paced. When you walk in, you feel as though you joined a big Italian family party, [...]

Wine Tasting (at home!)

Who says you have to spend a night on the town to have a fun, exciting evening? My husband and I have found that although we certainly love taking the kiddos out to explore a new restaurant or even enjoy a date night every so often, we can make the best out of a [...]
