The Food Hussy!: Restaurant Review: Bob Evans Broasted Chicken

I love these guys – Bob Evans is so homey and comforting and yummy! That picturesque farm is great too – it just screams COME INSIDE! (And actually – you can visit the farm – it’s in Ohio!)They are most well known for their home cooking and their breakfast. Being so close to their headquarters, Cincinnati is lucky because they try things out on us – and right now – they’re testing Broasted Chicken here! I decided to grab some girls and check it out… To start with you get a choice of bread – you can choose from biscuits, banana (Read more...)

The Food Hussy!: Product Review: Charles Viancin Overboil Ring

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. I was recently sent this great new product for the kitchen – it’s an overboil ring.It’s made of silicone and you just set it in your pot when you’re boiling something that tends to boil over. Now it seems silly – but when you cook a lot – it’s a pain in the butt when things boil over!! Here’s a shot of it in action! Handy huh? These lids are really affordable too – you can get this one for under $15!The ring in the middle is also nice because you (Read more...)

The Food Hussy!: Road Trip: Hollywood Casino & Final Cut Steakhouse – Lawrenceburg, IN

Sometimes you just need a night away – especially when you’ve got two rambunctious dogs that sleep with you. Every once in a while – I night of humans-only in a King bed is pretty awesome. We headed to Hollywood Casino in Lawrenceburg, IN for just that!

The Food Hussy!: Restaurant Review: Angilo’s Pizza

I’m really happy that where we live there is a choice for pizza other than the national chains. There’s nothing wrong with them – but I love the locals. Angilo’s Pizza actually has two locations within 10 minutes of our house! We tend to frequent the Springdale Rd location – their employees are more friendly + they deliver. Larry has a completely standard order from Angilo’s – steak hoagie, pizza sauce, no onions. It is really great – the bread is soft, it’s garlicky, just plain yum. My favorite thing ever from Angilo’s is their garlic cheese bread. I really don’t understand why (Read more...)

The Food Hussy!: Recipe: Beef Stroganoff Potatoes

Eating healthy is not easy for me – I love food. (duh) Lately I’ve been checking out these meal planning services for easy, low-calorie meals. Meals by the Week offers up a plan for Under 400 Calorie meals so I’ve been trying it out. One that caught my eye right away was the Beef Stroganoff Potatoes recipe. I really like that their site allows you to choose how many people the recipe is for. This is great when you only have 2 people so you don’t end up with leftovers for days. First you saute beef tips – I used my Farberware (Read more...)

The Food Hussy!: Restaurant Review: Packhouse Meats, Newport KY

I’m always on the lookout for new restaurants – my good friend Jenny mentioned something about Packhouse Meats – which sounded more like a butcher chop – but I dug for a little more info. When I went to their website – I saw everything talking about “Packs” – which I had no idea what that meant. Finally – I looked them up on Urbanspoon and found out – it’s meatballs! Okay – now I’m in. :-) Packhouse Meats is in Newport on the south end of Monmouth Street. It’s got a really great look inside – the exposed brick, the (Read more...)

The Food Hussy!: Product Review: McCabe’s Granola

The folks at McCabe’s Granola recently sent me some samples of their product. I was really excited about it because McCabe’s is a local family owned Cincinnati company! Supporting McCabe’s is supporting our city! They have four flavors of their bagged granola – original, PB & chocolate, delta blueberry and cran with a twist. You can purchase McCabe’s Granola on Amazon or I’ve seen it locally at Kroger. My favorite flavor was the PB & Chocolate – so delicious!
