Happy FriYAY, Noshers!  I don’t know about you, but this has felt like the longest week ever.  I flew to NYC for about 36 hours last weekend (our original flight was canceled so the trip was even shorter than expected!) for some fun plans/Mother’s Day festivities, and I’m definitely paying for it in exhaustion this week! But have no fear, Friday’s here – which means it’s almost the weeeekend!  I thought I’d kick off this much-needed two days off with my delicious dining experience at Columbus Park Ramen Shop.  Cue mouth watering now… Continue reading »

Happy hump day, Noshers!  This week has been ridiculously busy, but thankfully there are some fun activities to get me through it :).  One such event was a fabulous happy hour event hosted by The Blog Guild – of which I recently became a member! The Blog Guild has been a great way for me to meet fellow KC-area bloggers and introduce me to some new blogs – yay!  Yesterday’s event at Golden and Pine featured yummy eats from Heirloom Bakery & Hearth (at which I discovered the BEST sandwich cookie in KC – details here!), such as these beautiful focaccia with red pepper hummus, sheep’s milk cheese, sage greens, and flowers: Continue reading »

Kansas City: Cupcake A La Mode (Bakery)

Well stick a fork in me and call me basic, because this girl friggin’ LOVES cupcakes.  I know, I know – the cupcake craze started years ago, and some might say has since been out-shined by the doughnut craze, the cold brew craze, the [insert artisan handcrafted food here] craze – and don’t get me wrong, I will gladly eat/drink all of these things.  But to me, there’s nothing quite like the satisfaction of a travel-sized, portioned-for-one, perfect-frosting-to-cake-ratio cupcake.  In NYC, I relied heavily on Magnolia (two blocks from my building in NYC – dangerous!!), Sprinkles, and Sugar Sweet Sunshine.  Here in KC, I’ve discovered Cupcake A La Mode

I admit I’m a bit of a purist when it comes to cupcakes – my absolute favorite is vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream frosting. Some may call that boring; I just say – a combination so simply perfect needs no embellishment.  So, I was pleasantly surprised with the PB&J cupcake (bottom left) that was calling my name. Um, peanut butter frosting? Yes please.  Equally delicious (though second to the PB&J) was the vanilla cake with chocolate frosting. Sign me up. Yum.

Cupcake A La Mode has a multitude of cupcake flavors, and I’ve only tried a few.  Obviously, I have my work cut out for me.  For the sake of blog integrity, yes, I will go back and try the other flavors and report back. You’re welcome!

Kansas City: Seva Cuisine of India (Indian)

Puffy fluffy naan bread, how I love thee…

As you’ve probably gathered from my recent posts, I’m on a bit of a self-assigned quest to find delicious, authentic ethnic food in the Kansas City area.  I fully acknowledge that living in NYC for more than a decade spoiled me for all things ethnic food.  Korean chicken wings at 2am? No problem.  Singaporean laksa that rivals hawker center faire? Sure.

Sooooo, when I saw that this restaurant called Seva Cuisine of India was rated number 9 of 1,100+ restaurants in Kansas City on TripAdvisor (which, I know, people have differing views on the source), I must say I was at least a tad intrigued.  And when you’re into food as much as I am, “a tad intrigued” translates very quickly into “ok, we’re going.” And off we went.

Kansas City: The Corner Restaurant (American, Brunch)

Not to be confused with Corner Bistro in NYC, where one can get a pretty stellar burger without burning a hole in your wallet, KC’s very own The Corner Restaurant offers some solid brunch fare.  I recently checked it out – it was packed on a Saturday morning – and was not disappointed.

Insert appropriately worn/trendy menu here: Continue reading »
