Apple Picking at Alldredge Orchards!

Lifestyle

alldredge-orchard-10

H-apple-y Monday, Noshers!  How was your weekend?  We had a pretty good one – we went apple picking!  It was one of the last weekends to pick apples (and we were forewarned that the apples left to pick were “challenging”) – for some reason, October really got away from me.  We really wanted to bring our pup Toby along, so we were happy to find Alldredge Orchards.

Burgers: Town Topic

Eating Out, Food

town-topic-kc-1 Now this is a story all about how my life got flipped-turned upside down…

Juuuust kidding – but who doesn’t like a little Fresh Prince reference every now and again?

This IS a story, however, of an old-school burger joint here in KC that reminds me of one of my favorite slider dives in NJ – White Manna.  Like White Manna, Town Topic in KC is a no-frills, not-dressed-to-impress, counter-top seating only hole-in-the-wall that has won the hearts and stomachs of many.

Kansas City: Shio Ramen

One thing that’s been pretty fun (and delicious) here in Kansas City is the recent rise in popularity of ramen shops.  When I lived in NYC, I had my pick of ramen joints, with varying degrees of quality and popularity, from “sure, I’ll pay 6 bucks for izakaya ramen at 2am” to “omgggg Ippudo best ramen EVER!”  When I moved to the Midwest last year, I was pleasantly surprised with my go-to ramen joint here in KC, the relatively new Columbus Park Ramen shop. Their tonkatsu ramen is the bomb!  However, recently Shio Ramen Shop opened up, and I knew I had to try it out. So which noodles reigned supreme? Read on to find out. Continue Reading

I love these little sheep that greeted me on the way in!

Oh happy day, Noshers!  Today I’m excited to share the grand opening of Green Dirt Farm Creamery & Terra Vox Tasting Room. I attended their sneak preview last week and I was super impressed with the space, the team, and oh my goodness the CHEESE! I shouldn’t have been surprised, as Green Dirt Farm makes some pretty amazing sheep’s milk cheeses and yogurts that are carried and served by fan favorites such as Whole Foods, Cosentino’s, and  The Farmhouse.  As you can see, there was a ton to choose from – just take a look at those chalkboard menus: Continue Reading

Kansas City: The Majestic (American, Brunch)

Eating Out

the-majestic-kc-2One of the things I love most about living in a new city is finding my new favorites – new favorite sushi place, new favorite brunch restaurant, etc. And while I might still swap out old favorites for new finds, I love the search and eat process.  I recently found my favorite sweet brunch dish – yes, that’s a category.   And my new favorite sweet brunch dish is….(drum roll please…) the baked banana toffee French toast at The Majestic!  Yes, it looks good, but wait till you read the description… Continue Reading
