Katie's Pizza & Pasta Osteria at Ballpark Village: St. Louis, MO

On a recent media tour in St. Louis, one of our scheduled lunches was in Ballpark Village at Katie’s Pizza and Pasta Osteria. We’d been at Busch Stadium the night before and watched the Cardinals beat the Phillies. I loved the ballpark and surrounding area. Even as a Cubs fan (who is often urged to view the White Sox, Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals as ardent enemies), I’m a big fan of the game of baseball and loved the vibes in this neighborhood. And Katie’s is a great addition to the ballpark experience or as a separate dining destination.  I loved that you walk in and imm ..read more

Anvil & Forge: Springfield, IL

Almost every road trip includes a stop at a brewery.  I love observing the different vibe at each one. It's a place where you can sit and sip over conversation. Or where you can have a lively night with friends. Or where you can kind of tuck yourself away in a corner to check emails. I checked on Anvil & Forge when I was coming back from a solo trip to see my aunt. I needed a bite of something for late lunch. I saw that pizza was available by the slice - just what I needed. I believe the crust is made from scratch as well as the sausage being freshly ground in-house. It was a specta ..read more

Corned Beef and Cabbage - St. Patty's Day Classic
Chicago Foodie Sisters Blog
by
3w ago
Every year in March, I make the mandatory corned beef, potatoes, carrots and cabbage for the family. It's either boiled together in a big pot or sometimes made in a crock pot. Last year hubby got a smoker and I've found that corned beef is taken to a whole other level when it's slowly smoked.  If you've not tried it before, it so takes it up a notch. Even if you don't have a smoker, you can buy a smoker box that you fill with chips that you can use on your grill (and probably in the oven, also). I never want to have corned beef any other way now ..read more

Junk Ditch Huntington Tap

When I visited Junk Ditch Brewing in Fort Wayne, it became an instant favorite. Not just for the beer, but for their amazing food options. It was truly one of my favorite meals I have ever had. I was impressed by the use of bonita flakes on the crab cake, the most pillowy of gnocchi and a fantastic fisherman's stew. We enjoyed it so much, we stopped back before heading out of town for some more beer and the dessert I didn't have room on the previous visit. A couple weeks ago we were in Huntington to check out Nick's Kitchen (best breaded pork tenderloin I have ever had!) and as we were headi ..read more

It's Pie Day! And while there are many, many choices of places to go to enjoy a slice of pie, few are better than Mrs. Wick's Pie's in Winchester, IN. The business started in 1944 and it wasn't long before owner Duane "Wick" Wickersham had reached his goal of selling 300 pies a day out of his Buick sedan in addition to running a restaurant. Customers loved the homemade treats made from his grandmother's recipes. Today, there's a large production facility where they make over 10,000 pies and 30,000 pie shells in a shift. The current restaurant has plenty of room for seating where you ca ..read more

Beef Noodle Veggie Soup

With a big snowstorm predicted, and nowhere I had to go, it seemed a good time to hunker down and make some soup. I don’t think I ever make any two pots exactly the same. Kind of wing it and use what I’ve got. Here’s what went into this batch: Three large Knorr tomato bouillon cubes Three large Knorr chicken bullion cubes 12 cups water  Place cubes and water and boil to dissolve. While boiling add whatever seasoning you like. I added some 21 seasoning salute from Trader Joe’s, seasoned pepper, garlic salt, Italian seasoning.  Dice and add the following veggies, or whatever you li ..read more
