Review: Kajun Krawfish

Review: Kajun Krawfish

Being a native Southerner, Terry loves crawfish. They’re hard to get around here– being landlocked is a problem, and folks just aren’t quite familiar with the little bugs. In fact, though I’ve had crawfish in dishes, I’ve never been to a boil. Kajun Krawfish is […]

Photos of the New Grammer’s Interior

I sent The Better Half on a field trip to take pictures of the interior of Grammer’s. They’re still doing work before their opening, but it looks quite a bit different than before.  I like the use of cream, and its traditional German feel.  What […]

Review: Fireside Pizza

Review: Fireside Pizza

I’m kind of on a brick oven pizza kick. It started with my first visit to A Tavola (which no, I would not review within the first month or so, in case anyone wonders), then a trip to Pomodori’s (you’ll see that one soon, promise) […]

Grammer’s, the Over-the-Rhine mainstay, will be reopening after an extensive remodel, on Friday, June 17. I spoke this afternoon to Dan Wade, who is the General Manager for the Relish Group (which runs Lavomatic, also in Over-the-Rhine, The Bistro and Local 127 downtown, and the […]

Every year, the parish I grew up in had their parish festival on Memorial Day weekend. We schoolkids celebrated with Hot Lunch Day (no daily hot lunches for us) which usually consisted of Domino’s pizza and Grippo’s chips, but we got the added bonus of […]

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 […]

Review: Sweet Peace Bakery

Review: Sweet Peace Bakery

In my house, growing up, there was always a box of Oatmeal Cream Pies from Little Debbie in the pantry.  I think my mom may still keep them there.  The creamy filling sandwiched by soft, slightly spicy cookie is still a favorite, though I couldn’t […]

Review: Foodzie

Review: Foodzie

I love the trend of “curated” sample packs. I fell in love with this trend via Birchbox, which sends you five samples based on a theme (April was “earth-friendly”, May was “Gifts for Mom”). They’re really generous samples: like a small bottle of nail polish […]

Summer Reading, Food Edition

Summer Reading, Food Edition

I was *that* kid when I was growing up. You know the one– nose in a book, constantly. Even at the dinner table (which infuriated my mother to no end). Summertime was my favorite time of year, because that meant I could read whatever I […]
