National Hot Dog Day

While there was one local hot dog place I was intrigued to try in celebration of this day (Up Dog, I mean come on, the name itself is hilarious) it unfortunately didn't fit into my schedule this week, so I settled for some grilled at home on the good ole electric grill. I did, however,... Continue Reading →

National Ice Cream Day

I spent National Ice Cream Day doing everything you're supposed to do on a perfect July summer Sunday: hanging at the pool, grilling some amazing chicken thighs and topping it off with a sweet treat, all in the company of good friends. And when you're already so comfortable poolside, why leave to go get ice... Continue Reading →

National French Fry Day

As French fries are one of my favorites food groups (i.e. curly, waffle, steak, etc.), I was having trouble choosing a favorite to feature today, so I decided it would be the perfect time to try something new. Based on a friend's recommendation, our group headed up to North Kansas City (which we should really... Continue Reading →

Chocolate Day

I spent Chocolate Day hitting up two of my favorite local chocolatiers in the Crossroads Arts District of downtown Kansas City: Christopher Elbow Chocolates and Bizz & Weezy Confections. My first stop was Christopher Elbow, located on McGee Street. Elbow has been crafting his unique and delicious creations here for many years now, and is... Continue Reading →

National Creative Ice Cream Flavors Day

So far it seems like summer is full of nothing but an array of different ridiculous ice cream days, but hey, you won't hear me complain. And so in honor of National Creative Ice Cream Flavors Day, I continued my rounds of local Kansas City ice cream shops and enthusiastically headed to what sticks out... Continue Reading →

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 →

National Onion Ring Day

When it comes to the great debate between french fries and onion rings (actually, is there really much debate?) I have to say I'm a more of a french fry gal. 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 →
