Deviled Eggs & Bellisari’s Spreads

My sister (the brains behind Eat Play Cbus) and I recently spent the afternoon at our Dad’s house whipping up some tasty recipes using Bellisari’s Spreads. While I’m all about making homemade sauces, there is also something so wonderful about having simple, tasty and wholesome pre-made items that boost your recipes. Their whole concept is about […]

Chocolate Cupcakes & Buttercream Icing

Whenever I have an excuse to make a recipe inspired by Sally’s Baking Addiction, it’s a good day in my book. The excuse this time is that my boss found a new job! She’ll be leaving our little team at the end of the week to head down south for a new gig. Since I’m not […]

Valters at the Maennerchor: Restaurant Review

Today is The Beard’s birthday (hello, 31!) and since all of our life celebrations revolve around food, you better believe that we tested out a new restaurant tonight. Not only were we celebrating his birthday but it was also our first date night out together since our little peanut was born! Big thanks to my […]

But, seeing as how I can’t watch 12 hours of uninterrupted football like The Beard, Saturdays are also for making tons of time-consuming recipes. In the spirit of tailgating, I decided to make some homemade soft pretzel sticks. This recipe is super easy and even though you […]

Pumpkin Banana Bread

It is Fall in Ohio so f I don’t post a recipe with pumpkin, I think I get my midwest female blogger card revoked. When I write recipes, I usually look all over the world wide web for what I want to make to search for some inspiration. Today I found these three recipes: Pumpkin Spice Banana Bread from […]

Los Guachos Taqueria: Restaurant Review

Okay, so here’s the thing. I love Mexican Food. Always have, always will. But, I didn’t realize that I loved real Mexican Food until I found Los Guachos Taqueria on Godown Road. It’s life changing and you’ll feel the same after you visit this fantastic little hole in the strip mall restaurant. Let’s start with the […]
