Posted by on Jun 16, 2014 in Cleveland, Drinks, Eats, Elsewhere, Header | 0 comments

As Lisa wrote in Part I of our series on Certified Angus Beef, our weekend adventure earlier this month was equal parts beef education, edibles, and FUN.

Posted by on May 20, 2014 in Akron, Eats, Header | 4 comments

A few weeks ago, the discovery of Pav’s Creamery in Portage Lakes threw a curveball to my carefully curated lineup of Canton ice cream favorites. I was all set, really: there’s Milk & Honey {a Canton classic, and what they do, they do SO well}, Handel’s {a million flavors, including the out-of-this-world ‘Red Skies at Night’ – black raspberry with chocolate chunks}, and Almost Heaven {their house specialty is killer homemade butter pecan}.… Read More
