Burgers that Put the Sizzle in Summer

Burgers that Put the Sizzle in Summer

Hot days, hazy nights, fire pits, and barbecues. These are Midwestern summer rituals, when friends and family spend as many hours outside as humanly possible, basking in the glory of the 100 days of summer. If you are like us, we try not to even turn the oven on from June to September. It is “grill baby grill” for as long as we can.

Mi Ranchito – It’s Not Authentic… It’s Home-Cooking

Mi Ranchito – It’s Not Authentic… It’s Home-Cooking

After returning from an ever so delightful vacation down in the Baja of Mexico, we met the executive producer of our new show, Life’s a Feast, to discuss upcoming episodes. We talked about our trip down to Cabo San Lucas, for which we cannot say enough good things, and he said, “We have to take you to our new favorite restaurant.” We gladly agreed, picked up his wife and daughter, and headed over to Mi Ranchito, on University Ave. It is always a pleasure to enjoy a meal with friends, but an added delight when you can dine with friends who appreciate an authentic… wait, no, a home-cooked meal, like we do.

1st and Main – The New Kid on the Block

1st and Main – The New Kid on the Block

We all know there is no shortage of bars in Dubuque. In fact, at one point, Dubuque had more bars per capita than anywhere else in the country. I'm not sure if that's a great bragging right, but we all know Dubuque likes its drink. With so many bar options available, each with their own draw and appeal, and many offering some sort of salty, thirst inducing snack to match the cold beer, it is usually not all that exciting to hear another bar is opening. Then we heard the chatter, and it was all good.

Ha Long… Has This Been Going On?

Ha Long… Has This Been Going On?

As the doldrums of winter march on, we relish in the smalls things – a sunny day, where anything above 32 degrees is balmy, heated car seats when it’s not, and trips up to Madison for a Costco run and a culture-filled meal. Because, let’s be honest, the tri-state area is beautiful and all, but sometimes you just need a little cultural soak, if you will.

The General’s Restaurant In the DeSoto House

The General’s Restaurant In the DeSoto House

There is something special about walking down Galena’s Main Street on a winter eve. The streets are lit, the store fronts’ windows are bright against the dark January night, passersby huddled close to one another as they move down the street filling the air with laughter. One is left to wonder what it must have been like to walk this same street during Galena’s heyday in the 1850s.
