LUNCH AT KICKSTAND COFFEE & KITCHEN
by Kate Hart
7 Feb 2017 at 11:39am
One of our favorite places to eat in town is a coffee shop. Seriously, a coffee shop. Kickstand Coffee & Kitchen offers so much more than coffee. In addition to the best house-made doughnuts in town, they also have an impressive lunch and dinner menu, and beer, wine, and cocktails at the bar. Did I […]

Happy New Year, everyone! I know it’s almost February, but it’s never to late to wish a prosperous new year to friends (or readers)! Part of the reason for the delayed wishes is that we welcomed a son to our family just a few days before Christmas. We have been soaking up the baby cuddles, […]

HAPPY HOUR AT HENNI?S KITCHEN AND BAR
5 Dec 2016 at 10:00pm
My Dad and Stepmom offered to take the kids and I out for Happy Hour in the Gorge. We let the kids decide and they chose Henni’s Kitchen and Bar because they love the spaghetti and meatballs, and I didn’t argue cause I love pretty much everything on the menu there. We zoomed across the […]

A QUICK STOP AT SYNCLINE WINERY
17 Oct 2016 at 9:46am
Have I mentioned how much I love the wines and setting at Syncline Winery? Well, I do. I love the little winding drive up into Lyle and down the gravel road to the winery. Something about the location makes it feel like a secret even though it’s often bustling with fellow wine lovers. We recently […]

LAVENDER LATTE AT STOKED ROASTERS
6 Aug 2016 at 2:00am
It’s full on summer, I love to get out of the house early and go to the waterfront either to walk around, or let the kids play at the park or get sandy and wet down at the beach. My favorite thing to do is to pop over to Stoked Roasters and treat myself to […]

PHELPS CREEK VINEYARDS LYNETTE CHARDONNAY
18 Jul 2016 at 1:31pm
I am not a huge Chardonnay drinker, but I have to say that the Phelps Creek Vineyards Lynette Chardonnay is really special. It’s wonderfully refreshing and clean with lovely notes of citrus and melon to balance it out. I love this beautiful white wine… it’s a favorite of mine all year round.

COCONUT ICE CREAM AT MIKE?S ICE CREAM
20 Jun 2016 at 5:06am
I needed to just pop in to rave about the coconut ice cream at Mike’s Ice Cream. It’s my favorite, reminiscent of the coconut gelato I couldn’t get enough of when I visited Italy! They don’t have it all the time, but when they do I always order it, sometimes split with something a little […]

BRUNCH AT BRODER OST
7 Jun 2016 at 9:33am
When I heard that Broder was opening a location within the Hood River Hotel in downtown Hood River I was beyond excited. The Broder locations in Portland serve up some of the best brunch in the city. Their Nordic-inspired menu features gems like Danish Pancakes which are more like beignets and are served with lingonberry […]

Everybody?s Brewing in Spring
7 Apr 2016 at 8:22am
This weather is amazing! It’s so wonderful to see everyone (my family included) coming out of hibernation to ride bikes, play on the waterfront, stroll through downtown and treat themselves to Mike’s Ice Cream! Tulips and cherry blossoms are everywhere and the light lingers until well after the kids are tucked into bed. One of […]
