8 Holiday Appetizers That You Can Master On Your Next Date Night

Note: Check out our experience at Savoir Cooking & Wine last year (2019). We had so much fun participating in a LIVE cooking class with so many of our close friends. As you all know, times are a bit different now so we were thrilled to see that Savoir is offering a virtual class [...]

Oh How I Love Basi Italia – Takeout Style

If you venture into the heart of Victorian Village, you'll stumble upon Basi Italia, an amazing little restaurant that offers Mediterranean and Italian inspired cuisine. It is one of the best in Columbus - not only because of the outstanding food, but also due to the authentic atmosphere and top-notch service. In my younger [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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’ [...]

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 [...]

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 - [...]

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, [...]
