Blueberry Greek Smoothie

Blueberry Greek Smoothie

With this smoothie, you get 22% of your daily nutritional intake for protein. That’s not bad, right? Particularly when it is low on the glycemic index and low in overall calories. This recipe is fast and tastes pretty good. One tip: once you have made the smoothie, don’t let it sit. Drink it quickly otherwise […]

Chilled Cucumber Soup

Chilled Cucumber Soup

There is a debate going on in my house as to whether I should post this recipe up or not. I made this yesterday for lunch and although it has great flavor, it was a little thin. The picture does the soup no justice. What looks like a thick soup is really just some thick […]

Smooth Green Juice

Smooth Green Juice

For those of you who have tried the Green Lemonade, you may have noticed somewhat of an earthy smell to it.  This is normal, believe me.  The smell comes from the kale which also has a really intensely green flavor to it as well, which is why you need two apples in the juice to […]

The Original Pancake House in Woodmere, OH

When you need a place for a breakfast meeting, you should schedule it for the Original Pancake House on Chagrin Blvd. in Woodmere. Here’s the deal… the food is not all that great, but the restaurant is setup for people to have meetings there. The service isn’t top notch and if you are drinking anything […]

The Best Hummus Recipe

The Best Hummus Recipe

I have been trying to make a good hummus recipe for years. My baseline is the hummus at Taza in Eton Collection. Their hummus is smooth, rich and delicious. My hummus has always turned out a bit too textural. Also, I tend to go outside the traditional hummus recipe sphere. I like to add different […]

Harry Buffalo in North Olmsted

For those of you who are not from Cleveland, you need to understand something about this city. There is an East Side and a West Side. Most people from the East Side don’t go to the West Side and vice versa. For some reason, all East Siders think that the West Side is on another […]
