Breaking: Shooting at Ambar India

Breaking: Shooting at Ambar India

I don’t normally talk about crime here, but I am just so saddened to hear about the manager owner of Ambar India (for the record, my very favorite Indian restaurant) being involved in a shooting at the restaurant tonight. There’s nothing online about it yet, […]

The Boyfriend Finds Himself in Deep Deux-Deux:  Ballpark Food II

The Boyfriend Finds Himself in Deep Deux-Deux: Ballpark Food II

(Guest post by The Boyfriend) In yesterday’s post, I wrote about the culinary adventures that Julie and I had during visits to two Major League Baseball parks this summer:  PNC Park in Pittsburgh and Nationals Park in Washington, DC. Both parks are relatively new.  Nationals […]

Ballpark food…done right

Ballpark food…done right

(Guest post by The Boyfriend) I love baseball. I attended my first Major League game when I was eight, and I’ve been hooked ever since.   I’ve been known to plan entire vacations based largely on whether the destination city’s team(s) would be in town while […]

Apparently it is No Cat Day.

Apparently it is No Cat Day.

…or Anti-Caturday. Or whatever. So other folks are doing AntiNoCats. I’m going to jump off of the foodie bandwagon by posting a picture of my cat. I’m just that cool. (Man, I can’t believe Slashfood is participating!  Sheesh!) (He is awfully sad that you don’t […]

Review: Wildflower Cafe, Mason

Review: Wildflower Cafe, Mason

Three times in one week.  I suppose that if I was trying to be a professional restaurant reviewer, every restaurant I’d go to would be visited a minimum of twice before I wrote about it.  Sometimes that happens, sometimes it doesn’t, but three four times […]

Celebrate International Bacon Day!

So, Saturday is International Bacon Day! I can’t think of a better day. Except, perhaps, International Gin and Tonic Day. So, how are you going to celebrate? Baconnaise? Bacon vodka? Porkopolis gelato from Dojo? Maybe my bacon-filled baked beans? Let me know your supreme bacon […]

Sad news: Sheila Lukins, co-author of The Silver Palate Cookbook, dies

Wow, last Friday’s recipe was timely– Sheila Lukins, who co-authored The Silver Palate Cookbook (with Julee Rosso) 27 years ago, died on Sunday.  The Silver Palate, as I mentioned in my Chicken Marbella recipe post, was the cookbook that introduced many Americans, and in particular, […]

What’s your Food Threshhold?

What’s your Food Threshhold?

Everybody has something they won’t eat. Everyone has food they’re uncomfortable with. For some folks, it’s animal products (I have several good v*an friends). For some folks, it’s anything that isn’t “normal”; normal defined by good old American meat and potatoes. There are those that […]

Recipe: Chicken Marbella and Beer-a-rita

I will not be pigeonholed into simply “restaurant blogger”, and everyone knows I’m far too busy to be a consistent “recipe blogger”.   I just like food, darnit, and I write about it.  So here’s a recipe from the restaurant blogger. Recently, we had a couple […]
