India House, Wenatchee

I don’t know when, or even how, it started- but I’ve got a seriously huge obsession with Indian cuisine. I’m not sure if it’s because of the amazing smells and flavors of the food itself or if it’s because it stirs up my longing for travel and everything exotic. It could even be because it…

Tales from the (Ale) Trail: St Brigid’s Brewery, Moses Lake

I’m not really one of those adventurer types, at least not in the Indiana Jones sense anyway. However, I do love a good quest- especially if it’s mainly indoors and involves beer. And/or food. That’s pretty much how the creators of the Inland Northwest Ale Trail got me. Their idea is simple, visit various craft…

Ten Pin Brewing, Moses Lake

I first met the guys behind Ten Pin Brewing Co. back in 2013 when I was still writing for the Columbia Basin Herald. At the time, BJ and Jim were getting ready to serve their very first batch of craft beer to the public. They had a simple setup- four fermenters behind a see-through wall…

Mulligans at The Pointe, Moses Lake

The seasons aren’t the only things changing around here. Fans of the Steakhouse at Moses Pointe will notice the restaurant has reopened after their winter hiatus- but this time with a new name, and a slightly new vibe. The Pointe has always been a favorite of mine, even before I managed to trick their head chef…

Pho Saigon, Moses Lake

I’m a huge (HUGE!) fan of Asian cuisine and I think a lot of that comes from my upbringing. (This would be a good time to read the “about” section…hint hint.) However, for those who don’t know, I am a full fledged island girl. I was born in Hawaii and raised on Guam. Both places…

Nicholas Restaurant, Gresham

I’m a huge believer in trying new things while on vacation, especially when it comes to food. I have a rule that we’re not allowed to eat at restaurants that we have back in our town while we’re on vacation. I mean, where’s the fun in that? Experiencing new things is why vacations exist. And…

Date night hack: Michael’s for under $30

Now don’t get me wrong, you should always want to splurge on date night. In fact, there are times when you almost have to spoil your significant other (first dates or anniversaries,  for example). But sometimes, you just want to go out and have a nice dinner without spending an arm and a leg. And…

Happy stomach, happy wallet

You should never have to sacrifice quality for a little savings, especially when it comes to food. Cheap eats should also be great eats, something the Pillar Rock Grill in Moses Lake has caught on to. The restaurant is located in the clubhouse at the Moses Lake Golf Club and seems like the last place…

Sunday Funday in Leavenworth

I don’t know how to describe Leavenworth in December in actual words. Except…Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be shrunken down and placed in one of those little Christmas village snow globes? Because to me, that’s exactly what Leavenworth in December feels like. A visit to the town’s annual Christmas Lighting Festival…

Holiday cocktail roundup

There’s a reason they call this the most wonderful time of the year. If you’re like me and obsess over the holidays, then the month of December is practically heaven. You get to hang Christmas lights on your house, decorate a tree, sing Christmas carols and bake cookies. Then there’s all the holiday parties and…

Sunday Funday in Wenatchee

Days off are a precious thing in my world. By day, I work in insurance and by night, I’m a proud member of the food service industry. Factor in a part-time writing gig for this blog and you can see why I cherish each work-free day, or sometimes, half day, that gets thrown my way….
