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…

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…

Mary Lou’s Milk Bottle, Spokane

I’m literally kicking myself for not knowing about Mary Lou’s Milk Bottle before this week. I go to Spokane pretty frequently for shopping trips, girl’s weekends and other special occasions but for some reason have never stumbled across this gem. The Milk Bottle is known for their milkshakes (made from their homemade ice cream), their…

Historic Edgefield, Portland

The Edgefield has officially become one of my favorite Pacific Northwest vacation spots. It’s located  just outside of Portland which makes for an easy weekend getaway. The Edgefield is actually part of the McMenamins chain. For those who aren’t familiar, McMenamins takes historic properties, such as schools or other buildings, and turns them into hotels, music…

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…

Portland or bust!

Hey friends! I promise I haven’t forgotten about you! It’s been a really busy week for us as we’ve been getting ready for my annual birthday trip to Portland. Last year we were pretty ambitious and stayed at a couple of different hotels in different areas of the city. It was a lot of fun…

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…

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….
