Community Supported Pig

You can rarely list the good decisions you've after too many old-fashioneds. I'm fortunate to say, I can name two. The Community Supported Pig is one of them. And upon every pick up, as I gleefully walk away on clouds with a bag of goodies in hand, I think about the fateful night I was... Continue Reading →

Monday is for all the coffee

Coffee is a necessity of life I've slow rolled into over the last decade. Years ago, a crappy cup of hot brown water had the same nostalgic effect of the damn Folgers commercial that makes you tear up at the holidays. You know, the big brother coming up to surprise his parents, only privy to... Continue Reading →

Find Sub City

Maybe it's my joy of unearthing a hidden treasure, my love of carrying a single vessel of meats, cheeses and vegetables, or my upbringing with Joey Tribbiani- but my love of sub sandwiches is on a steep rise. I'd like to believe that every town has a great sandwich shop, but it's the ones that... Continue Reading →

News: snark and doughnuts

It's Monday! While braving an ice storm, here are a few news worthy goodies I managed to find despite all other conversation covering Jupiter.

First, increase the inventory of food clothing in your life. Start here, where the world of junk... Continue Reading →

Make it a matcha

Call it boredom, but by the end of last week I was exhausted. I attempted to reinvigorate with two days of yoga, but the multiple two-hour yoga sessions left me inspired and stretched, though NOT energized. Could more chakra balancing help? Maybe. Would diving full force into a new beverage make me feel better? Usually, definitely. And... Continue Reading →

Sugapeach: soul food in Iowa

While cheese balls and corn nuggets are NOT hard to come by in this area, you will not find fried okra on many menus. It's just one of the reasons to make the trip to Sugapeach in August when it opens. The owner promised food "like going to your grandmother's house on Thanksgiving", and from... Continue Reading →

Do it: Pig & Porter

Hoopla covered the background of it opening. Little Village released the menu. I figured I'd dive right in and drink half the cocktail menu, while I ate multiple selections from the food offerings from Pig & Porter. Last Thursday night, we stopped in for a late supper and to check out the newest place in town.... Continue Reading →
