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, [...]

The Rossi

My husband and I have always been lovers of The Rossi, a trendy yet comfortable (burger joint) on the corner of High Street and – in the Short North. We used to frequent it much more than I would like to admit, but since our two kiddos came along, we’ve had to take a [...]

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 [...]

Kraft House No. 5

If you make your way to the corner of Powell and Liberty Road in downtown Powell, you’ll find Kraft House No. 5, a charming little tavern that’s made itself known for locally sourced ingredients, crafty cocktails and a fairly hefty bourbon list. What you might not know is that you don’t necessarily have to [...]

Old Skool

If you venture near the High Street/Crestview intersection in the charming  Clintonville neighborhood, you’ll stumble upon a little, hidden gem that you may overlook if not for the bright, blue awning beckoning you inside. Old Skool, which prides itself on BBQ, burgers and beer, is the perfect stop if you and your family are [...]

Cap City Fine Diner & Bar

There are so many different restaurants that I could talk about in the new Bridge Park District in Dublin (which is amazing, by the way) but for today, let’s focus on our recent adventure to Cap City Fine Diner & Bar. We hit up this popular Cameron Mitchell restaurant shortly after playing some pinball [...]

101 Beer Kitchen

Our lives changed for the better on the day that 101 Beer Kitchen opened its doors on the corner of Sawmill Road. It has been a favorite of ours long before kids came into our lives -- and I can’t tell you how amazing it felt when we learned that we wouldn’t have to [...]

Sweet Carrot

If you’re looking for a healthy, family-friendly dinner spot when you’re in a time crunch, I encourage you to check out one of the many new Sweet Carrot locations throughout Columbus. I have to admit -- restaurants with a fast-food-type atmosphere are not always my favorite. I automatically get that panicked feeling like I [...]

Harvest Pizzeria

Nestled in the heart of downtown Historic Dublin is one of our favorite spots, Harvest Pizzeria. My husband and I have yet to find another local pizza restaurant that can rival the fluffy, airy, crispy crust that Harvest produces. We’ve even tried to re-create their Roasted Garlic pizza (our fav) at home but always come [...]
