Friday Five: Post-imbibification sustenance

(Guest post by The Better Half) I struggled with a title for this post. “Drunk Food,” though apt, is too crass. Yet however you label it, you’ve probably found yourself in the situation on at least a few occasions during your adult life.  It’s the […]

Friday Five:  On the side, please

Friday Five: On the side, please

(Guest post by The Artist Formerly Known as “The Boyfriend”) Complete the following:  Baked possum and _______. (Stick with me.  There’s a point here, I promise.) If you answered with anything other than “sweet potatoes,” you’re probably not a native Southerner.  And even though it […]

Friday Five: Taste of Cincinnati

Friday Five: Taste of Cincinnati

Yay, it’s Taste of Cincinnati time! There is so much food, I’m sure you’ll need a place to start, right? That’s what I’m here for. You can catch more of my picks during the Cincinnati.com Taste of Cincinnati chat at 11 AM today and I’ll […]

Friday Five:  Cinco de  Mayo

Friday Five: Cinco de Mayo

Two big things coming up next week: Cinco de Mayo and Derby. You’ll see some Derby-related posts from me early next week, but I’m in a mood for spicy Mexican, so Friday is devoted to Cinco de Mayo! In the past few years, there’s been […]

Friday Five: Bockfest

Friday Five: Bockfest

So, I’m sitting in El Paso, really wishing I could fully participate in Bockfest this year. As it is, I won’t be flying in until the afternoon, but I’ll definitely try to have some fun. It’ll be hard not to! Bockfest is the oldest and […]

Friday Five: Fries

Friday Five: Fries

There is nothing, to me, more perfect than a potato, deep-fried and seasoned to crispy perfection. There’s also nothing more disappointing than a fry that lands flat. I’ve had so many bad fries– so frozen I could taste the freezer burn, limp, undercooked, overcooked– that […]
