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…

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…

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….

Strawberry Kiwi stuffed French Toast

I was inspired by my friend Shawn’s post on the Moses Lake Farmers Market earlier this summer to consider ways I could increase my use of local food products. We have such an abundance of yummy fruit and vegetables growing right in our backyards (thank you farmers!) as well as a wealth of talented bakers, canners and ranchers…

Brunch in Moses Lake

If you’re like me, you know #brunchgoals is a very serious thing. If you eat a meal between the hours of 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. during the regular work week, you either had a late breakfast, an early lunch or just lunch. But on the weekends, you get to say you had brunch. And…

Farm to table comes full circle

Note: This article was previously published on http://www.thevenuemag.com How lucky are we to live in a part of the state where the concept of bringing your food straight from the farm to your table is easily achieved. I often take for granted the fact that you can start anywhere in Grant County and drive for…

The new watering hole

Moses Hole has quickly become one of my favorite drinking spots in town. The bar opened at the end of May in the old Strange Club, or the old Saucy Hog for you fans of nostalgia. But it looks nothing like the previous establishments. The new owners put in a lot of work to update…
