Review: Frieda’s Bakery

Review: Frieda’s Bakery

My grandmother was an excellent baker, in a very traditional German style, which has made me, I think, a bit particular about my baked goods. In addition, growing up, there were always great bakeries in my neighborhood, where if Grandma didn’t feel like baking, we […]

Hideaway: Closed

Hideaway: Closed

A Twitter conversation reminded me that I forgot to post about this: Hideaway in Northside is closed. I had done brunch there (as part of the Northside Brunch Tour), and wasn’t impressed– my French toast was undercooked, for example– so when I heard they were […]

Taft with a Twist: Dutch Treats

Right now, the Taft Museum is featuring the  Dutch Masters– you know, like Rembrandt– and folks you might not be as familiar with in an exhibit called Dutch Utopia.  They’ve been doing some events for the YP community– and they asked me to “host” an […]
