Winterlicious (Jan 25-Feb 7, 2013) is coming and reservations start tomorrow (if you’re an Amex card holder, today’s your front-of-the-line opportunity). It’s my annual cue to dine at home more often. But if I want to get out, here are… Continue Reading →

Chocolate Oatmeal Pecranberry Cookies

Many years ago I was looking for a good oatmeal cookie recipe – something chewy and tasty and easy. And I managed to find my base recipe from allrecipes.com. But I didn’t want a plain oatmeal cookie (and I can’t leave… Continue Reading →

A(nother) Meal At The Hoof

Brandon Olsen is somewhere in middle America right now, driving across the country seeking adventure and delicious things. But back at the end of October, I sat down at The Black Hoof’s bar to make sure I got in one last… Continue Reading →
