The food at the new Castle Street restaurant Rolled and Baked cannot overcome the following flaws: slow/delayed opening, slow service, erratic hours, small portions with big price tags, no carry-out service, and most annoying… owners and service people who lack experience in the industry. I had high hopes for this cutie…but alas…. Continue reading Rolled and Tanked
We have been enjoying wonderful northern Michigan for 15 years at our home in Lewiston. Hold your hand up like the mitten that Michigan is and Lewiston is about at your middle finger’s knuckle. That’s how all native Michiganders describe where they live to the uninitiated! Our full log home has wonderful features. Great views… A fantastic custom cabinetry kitchen with butcher-block countertops… A great fireplace for cozy winters…. And, four fantastic Garland Resort golf courses to play on…. But, what we love most are our quiet mornings together for breakfast. The Farmers Market in … Continue reading Northern Michigan…for breakfast
For a food blogger, there’s nothing better than discovering a gem in a city you’re visiting. For me, it’s especiaally exciting to find a diner that serves up a fresh, fast breakfast and doesn’t gouge you with their prices.

Frank’s/Francisco’s is such a place. $1.75 breakfast before 9:00am!!!! Homemade habanero chili hotsauce and all! Not to be missed if you are an early riser. Get there if you can!

Christmas week breakfasts are always special in our house. Last nights dinner becomes corned beef hash, the perfect foil for eggs fried in duck fat. A little hollandaise sauce on top of the hash, gilds the lily. So yummy! Continue reading Corned Beef, part II
Everyone clamors for a good breakfast around holidays in our home. A Spanish Tortilla and Green Eggs with ham are on the menu today. Sauté spinach with finely diced onions and Canadian bacon in a skillet, then add 5-6 eggs beaten with a 1/4 cup whole milk. Add salt and pepper. Add 1 cup shredded cheese of choice (I used a mac n’cheese blend of cheddar, american and jack) and cook on a med-low heat until set. If you can flip the whole thing over..all the better. My Spanish tortilla consists of thinly sliced potatoes lightly browned in olive oil … Continue reading Breakfast during the holidays…
