National Waffle Iron Day

Finally, an excuse to break out one of the lesser-used appliances gracing the highest cabinet in our kitchen, the waffle iron. It was the first time my boyfriend and I used it together, and the last. Instead of going the easy route suggested by said boyfriend and buying a pre-boxed waffle mix at the store,... Continue Reading →

National Pineapple Day

To me, the pineapple is the most cheerful fruit. It's sweet, tropical and an exuberant shade of yellow. One simply can't be sad while eating pineapple. To find mine, I headed to the downtown Kansas City fruit and veggies mecca: The Farmer's Market at the Historic City Market. I decided to walk there this past... Continue Reading →

National Catfish Day

When I saw this on the calendar, I knew exactly where I was headed. I love fried fish, and I knew I wanted to try someplace new, someplace that had caught my attention during my many trips up and down Main Street: Lutfi's Fried Fish. It's hard to miss their eye-catching orange storefront sign, and... Continue Reading →

But obviously when it comes to National Onion Ring Day, I had to break my loyalty. I decided to conduct a quick internet search... Continue Reading →

National Ice Cream Soda Day

What could be more fitting for the first day of summer? I decided I wanted to celebrate with something a little extra special, so I set out in search of something more than just your basic root beer float. Glacé Artisan Ice Cream on the Plaza had exactly what I was looking for: a Salted... Continue Reading →

Corn on the Cob Day

Growing up, corn on the cob was a summertime staple. My mom always made it very simply, but very well. Boiled on the stove, slathered with melted butter. While you can't go wrong with a classic, I wanted to try something a little different. We grilled our corn on the cob, probably about 15-20 minutes,... Continue Reading →

World Gin Day

It took me a long time to find out I liked gin. I blame that fact on one particular college experience where I was handed some Seagram's Extra Dry gin. Why that was even around, I will never know, but let's just say it didn't exactly go down easy. It's a shame my opinion of gin... Continue Reading →

National Chocolate Ice Cream Day

As I've been a lifelong fan of both chocolate and ice cream, it could be something of a surprise that regular old chocolate flavored ice cream has never really ranked at the top of my favorite flavors. With that in mind, I set out with the idea that, if possible, I would mix it up... Continue Reading →
