Visited Cleveland Botanical Garden today – beautiful and oh so creative Christmas tree and gingerbread house displays. Love the variety of exotic plants, butterflies, birds, and more in the Glasshouse as well! Truly a fantastic place to visit if you are in the area.
Keith and I took a much needed day off, wandering around and doing nothing, lol. We went to three Asian grocery stores – finally found the ingredients we were seeking in the third one. Then, we stopped for a quick meal – I am still a little on the fence but the Beef Chow Hor […]
On day 2 of our family vacation, we decided to do a scavenger hunt of famous landmarks in downtown Cleveland. For us, one sure way of getting Alex interested in checking out new things or places is to incorporate them into a scavenger hunt game. After much googling, we came across only one website – […]
After his week of camp, Alex promptly fell sick. In fact, he was sick the whole of last week and is actually still recovering at the moment. Since I was cooped up in the house with him, I finally decided it was time to make space for my ever-growing vintage cookbook collection, instead of just […]

Yesterday, we decided to make a quick trip to the West Side Market in Cleveland (okay, Keith and I decided and Alex had no say but to tag along…sure is hard being a kid :D). Although WSM is supposedly a great foodie destination in Cleveland (and considering we live just 45 minutes away), we hardly ever visit it. That place is […]
Wow! It was a gorgeous day today! I think we might just have officially used up our quota of good days for the year. :D Since we opted not to cook a big Thanksgiving meal (which we will be doing at Christmas instead), we decided to use our free time to visit the Cleveland Metroparks […]
Boy, it was a scorcher today. Our outdoor thermometer was showing 110 degrees this afternoon, and we must have been out of our minds because we actually ventured out into the heat. :D We hit downtown Cleveland to tour the Veterans Memorial Bridge and the old subway below. We saw trolley cars, old tracks plus we had an awesome view […]
