Food Network Pit Stop: Vinsetta Garage

Food Network Pit Stop: Vinsetta Garage

The Vinsetta Garage is quite the establishment. It’s been on three food shows, The United States of Bacon, Best Bars in America and Bite this With Nadia G.  The folks who own Vinsetta also own Union Wood  Shop and Union Bar and Kitchen, which were both on Diner’s Drive In’s and Dives. We decided to go to Vinsetta because you can get the famous mac & cheese from the sister restaurant, Union Bar and Kitchen as well as some amazing…

Running for Doughnuts & Booze: The Hard Cider Run

Running for Doughnuts & Booze: The Hard Cider Run

This saturday morning my friend Jacquelline and I ran our first 5k of the year. I did alright, but I’m definitely in worse shape than our last 5k in October. Hopefully I’ll be able to knock some time off for our next race, the Ride & Run at Cedar Point. Anyways, back to the Hard Cider Run. It felt longer than 5 miles. But.. it was kind of a trail run. There was a lot of grass, dirt and sand. And…

Weekend Snapshots: Meet Crosby

Weekend Snapshots: Meet Crosby

This weekend was a tiring one. I ran my first 5k of the year Saturday morning and it sort of kicked my butt. I just started running outside again about 2 weeks ago (the weather here has been super weird) and I’m still adjusting to it. It was fun though. Plus, I always feel great after a tough run. It’s nice to push yourself and see what you can really do. I spent the rest of Saturday riding around on…

Standing on a Corner in Winslow Arizona…

Standing on a Corner in Winslow Arizona…

Last Christmas Ivan and I drove from Michigan to Arizona. We spent about 3 weeks with his family, and we needed to bring our dog along with us, so flying wasn’t an option.  On the way back home, I insisted that we make a pit stop in Winslow. Winslow is a rather small town, but apparently until the 1960’s Winslow was the largest town in Northern Arizona. At any rate, it’s been immortalized by the words from the Eagle’s song,…

The Great American Road Trip Book Challenge

The Great American Road Trip Book Challenge

I’ve decided to start a new reading challenge. I saw Erin post about a “USA Reading Roadtrip” and I thought it sounded like fun. I’m going to give myself until May 15th 2017 to finish it, a year from when I decided to start it. The idea is to read a book that takes place in each of the 50 States. Here is my tentative list. I am 100% certain that this list will change and evolve, but it gives…

Tiny Kitchen Tools: Oster Pro™ 1200 Blender & Food Processor

Tiny Kitchen Tools: Oster Pro™ 1200 Blender & Food Processor

I’m a bit of a kitchen appliance hoarder. When I found out that we were moving to DC, I knew I’d need to start weeding out some appliances. I had a HUGE ninja blender with two separate blender attachments and a old cusiniart food processor that was also ginormous. I wasn’t crazy happy with the ninja and decided to go ahead and start searching for a smaller blender and food processor. I wanted a combination blender/food processor unit, but they…
