Who struggles to get a good night’s sleep because their spouse is snoring like a freight train? Don’t be shy, raise your hands. Yep, just as I suspected–lots of you. Believe it or not, my Hubby is one of those people who can’t sleep because I’m the one who can’t...

IKEA

I love my occasional visits to IKEA, where they sell so much cool stuff. But I'm always sad when I stop in at the store's restaurant after all that shopping and find nothing vegan on the hot food menu. That all changed this month with IKEA's introduction of Grönsaksbullar vegetable balls, vegan...

Federalist Public House & Beer Garden



This weekend, I finally found the Federalist Public House & Beer Garden. I'd heard it was near 20th and N streets in Midtown, but driving down N, I never saw it. When I checked the restaurant's address, however, I discovered that it was on Matsui Alley, which is located...

Zucchini Fritter in a Cast Iron Skillet

Ahhh, zucchini. So easy to grow, and so easy to end up with too much of.  Romanesco from Renee’s Garden is my favorite because it has great flavor and grows well. One plant is enough to feed the whole neighborhood though, and by the time summer is over, I’ll never...
