wmdm’s Holiday Gift List 2011: Part 2

wmdm’s Holiday Gift List 2011: Part 2

Fine. This post has little to do with food. But really, we gain enough weight around the holidays without me encouraging you to eat more, right? Oh. That’s why you come here:  to find out about things to eat. Oops. How about this:  after you […]

wmdm’s Holiday Gift List 2011: Part 1 (and a recipe!)

wmdm’s Holiday Gift List 2011: Part 1 (and a recipe!)

It’s Black Friday. Don’t worry, I’ll be sure to post a cocktail a bit later today so you can drink your cares away. Me? I don’t do Black Friday. I don’t actually buy many gifts– but I’m always on the lookout for cool ideas and […]

Frisch’s vs. Busken (and WKRP)

Frisch’s vs. Busken (and WKRP)

I am rarely impressed by advertising these days.  It’s rarely cute or clever, and also rarely changes my mind or helps me make a decision. I’m jaded. But I have to hand it to both Frisch’s and Busken, who are having a good time trying […]

Thanksgiving Quick Recipe: Bourbon Cranberry Sauce

Thanksgiving Quick Recipe: Bourbon Cranberry Sauce

If you’re reading my blog right now, you’re procrastinating about something. It’s okay. I’m writing this the day before Thanksgiving, and I’m procrastinating myself. We’re in this together. So you’re heading to mom’s or grandma’s or your friend’s or your brother’s or whomever’s house, and […]

Thankful for Mis-measurements

Thankful for Mis-measurements

(Guest post by The Better Half) There is a food connection to this post. I promise. It is, after all, a Thanksgiving post on a food blog. In fact, if you’ll scroll to the bottom, you’ll find a recipe for chicken & dressing.  It’s one of […]

Haven’t bought a turkey yet?

Haven’t bought a turkey yet?

I posted this last year, and I figure that someone out there still needs a turkey, but doesn’t want a Butterball (for a variety of reasons).  This year, we ordered ahead from Cedar Lane Farms and have two, eight-pound turkeys hanging in the fridge.  Here […]

Cocktail Hour: Fragoli Liqueur

Cocktail Hour: Fragoli Liqueur

I often joke that the “booze fairy” occasionally visits my door, bearing samples for me to try.  I’m very behind in reviewing samples (and I’ve decided just to keep the reviews here, tagged “booze me, schmooze me” as it’s easier!).  This one has been staring […]

Beaujolais Celebration Tonight

Beaujolais Celebration Tonight

Beaujolais is traditionally released on the third Thursday in November (just in time for Thanksgiving, which is great as Beaujolais does pair well with turkey).  In Cincinnati, the Georges Duboeuf wine company will be hosting an exclusive event on November 17  (that’s today) at Maketewah […]

Recipe: Brussels Sprouts

Recipe: Brussels Sprouts

I hated brussels sprouts as a kid.  My dad, who is one of the pickiest eaters I know, loves them.  This makes zero sense to me.  He won’t eat anything that even resembles a tomato (ketchup is out, and he uses only the barest amount […]
