Birchwood & Pine | Indie Retail in Downtown Canton – CLOSED

Birchwood & Pine | Indie Retail in Downtown Canton – CLOSED

Lisa and I are both fans of the Cleveland Flea and Akron's Crafty Mart for unique, hand-crafted gifts from local artisans. {Can't tell you how often we've dreamed of organizing a similar concept in Canton. Someday.} Custom jewelry, chunky scarves, hand-thrown pottery, Ohio-themed t-shirts, paper 'wreathes' made from old books....I think we've both amassed a collection of beloved goodies. Some have even miraculously made their way out of our grips to become gifts for others! Read More... Read More

Ohio Route 39 – Amish Country Day Trip

Ohio Route 39 – Amish Country Day Trip

If meandering here and there resonates with you, too, you need to drive Ohio Route 39 from I-77 to Millersburg. For Akron/Canton/CLE folks - good news - you can easily get there and back in a {long-ish} day. In my last post, I talked about Park Street Pizza, which is a must-stop on Route 39. On every day but Friday and Sunday, though, they don't open until 3 PM, so you need to plan your day accordingly. Also, Park Street Pizza is just one small slice {sorry, had to} of activity along Route 39. I've cataloged some additional stops that are almost all food-related, but that's hardly a surprise if you're a regular reader. Food IS what defines any outing.Read More... Read More

Canton Farmers’ Market: Locally Grown, Locally Made

Canton Farmers’ Market: Locally Grown, Locally Made

BLTs, grilled corn on the cob, peach crisp, cool cucumber salad...the best summertime eats start with locally-grown, farm-fresh fruits & veggies. And in Canton, we have an abundance of local growers and producers right here in the "neighborhood." Last summer, I wrote about Countryside Farmers' Market in Peninsula, Ohio. It's one of my faves: a huge market with 50+ diverse vendors, food trucks, and live entertainment. If you haven't been, it's definitely worth a visit. Sometimes, though, my Saturday schedule simply doesn't allow for a 2+ hour excursion. Read More

Think happy hour in the sky. With a patio. And craft beer and ‘grill grub.’ Read More... Read More

Dining Around Northeast Ohio – Certified Angus Beef-Style

Dining Around Northeast Ohio – Certified Angus Beef-Style

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. Lisa talked about the educational aspect at the Certified Angus Beef Education and Culinary Center, which was fascinating by the way, and we hope to experience more from the CAB folks in the future.… Read More
