What a great 2008!

What a great 2008!

Wow, the last post of 2008.  What a year– I started the blog in January and have eaten my way around Cincinnati, DC, New York, San Antonio, Paris and Munich.  I’ve made more new friends than I can count, had opportunities to meet tons of […]

Review: Cowgirl Chocolates

Review: Cowgirl Chocolates

Foodbuzz sent me some free samples. I love free samples. Who doesn’t? They partnered with Cowgirl Chocolates and sent some my way. The whole concept is the Western cowgirl– a little spicy, a little sweet, and really very endearing.  The packaging is great– signature red, […]

Kona Bistro closed

Kona Bistro closed

Looks like I missed some news. Kona Bistro closed. I won’t particularly miss it, but I’m always sad to see a local restaurant close. With the economy as it is, will anything replace it anytime soon? Thank you Michelle for the tip.

Review: Chez Nora’s Brunch

Review: Chez Nora’s Brunch

So the Losers, as often as we chat, never get to hang out.  We decided, after having so much fun at our Cincy Chic photo shoot, that we needed to get together again, and soon.  Somehow, we found both a date and a locatin that […]

Observations (Paris)

Observations (Paris)

1. I read both French and german far better than I speak them. 2. However, my French is getting better. Still, my American accent makes the French reply in English anyway. 3. Patisseries and boulangeries are the best places on the planet. Seriously. 4. Skip […]

Christmas Breakfast: Brueggers’ bagels and salmon

Christmas Breakfast: Brueggers’ bagels and salmon

One of Terry’s favorite breakfasts in the winter is bagels with smoked salmon, capers, red onion and cream cheese. He’s big into Christmas decorations, so he always serves it on a cute Santa plate. Bagels are always Everything bagels from Brueggers (which, aside from Marx, […]

Merry Christmas, and a recipe.

Merry Christmas, and a recipe.

I hope that, if you celebrate, you have a very merry Christmas.  If you don’t celebrate, I hope you’re enjoying a well-deserved day off work. One of my favorite (newish) Christmas traditions is a drink Terry makes that is the “cheater’s” version of coquito, a […]

Review: Gordo’s

Review: Gordo’s

I guess Gordo’s is the latter half of 2008’s Terry’s Turf Club.  Terry and I wanted to do a low-end dinner before we traveled this week, and wanted to get something we couldn’t get where we were going, so I suggested Gordo’s. Gordo’s is the […]

Review: Skyline

Review: Skyline

Cincinnati Chili, particularly Skyline is, I think, the most ubiquitous of Cincinnati foods.  We’re known for it.  If you grew up here, you probably like it.  If you didn’t, you either love it or hate it.  I talked a little about the history of Cincinnati […]

Vacation time…

Vacation time…

I’m heading to Paris and Munich today for Terry and my now-annual European Christmas.  I’m looking forward to some crepes, foie gras, escargot, a croque monsieur and salads that don’t contain any lettuce (a strange Parisian thing).  Terry’s looking forward to sausages, croissant from our […]
