Easter Brunch, Columbus Ohio

Northstar Cafe - one located in Short North, on high street, one closer to Clintonville/Beechwold, also on high street. They stop serving brunch at 11 tho and close at 3 on Easter Sunday.

Happy Food Stories!

My nephew is 6, and a notoriously picky eater. (his sister is worse tho) However, he LOVES the fried egg sandwiches that i make him. Mine are the only ones he will eat. Its probably just a silly 6 year old thing but it makes me happy :)

Jamie Oliver - Taking On Obese America?

wow I didn't realize I was going to start such a hot topic.

There are people who are unhealthy because yes, they choose to be. And there are people who are unhealthy because they don't know better. I've volunteered in inner city programs and its true, many of the kids didnt know the names of many vegetables and fruits. It happens.

I think he is at least trying to make a difference and that is what counts. His programs in the UK have done very well and I think its awesome that he is at least trying to do something. Better than what our own government is doing for school lunches and nutrition. At least so far.

Because of Serious Eats I _______

..realized that food and nutrition have always been my passion and i'm now a Nutrition major.
...became more convinced that I must travel more.

What tomato varieties are you growing this year?

Purple Cherokee tomatoes - hands down the best tomatoes ever. I can barely stand to eat store bought ones after a whole summer of delicious Purple cherokees. Definitely try them if you havent yet.

First Drink for a 21-Year-Old?

Anything with Bailey's will be sweet. If you are going to do shots, do a Buttery Nipple - Bailey's + butterscotch schnapps and Peppermint Patty - squirt chocolate syrup in your mouth and take a shot of peppermint schnapps & swish it around - tastes like a peppermint patty.
Pineapple Upside Down Cake - pineapple juice, coconut rum, & grenadine syrup. delicious!

Have Fun!

Interesting uses for farina ("cream of wheat")?

some times we fry it up into patties when we have extra left over. but my favorite way to eat it is with a poached egg mixed it, very creamy and a different take than usually eating it sweetened

Songs About Food

oh my gosh! you guys are awesome!! I literally spent an hour youtubing most of the songs you guys posted! great stuff!

i love the line "dont cheat on me with bacon" :)

Spices and Oils - Choose One of Each

Olive Oil, the good stuff!

and probably an italian seasoning blend.

What Are the Must-Eats in Your City?

Columbus, OH - I would say the North Market. The food is good and there is something for everyone. Plus, Jeni's ice cream is awesome!

Foodies: Who or What is Responsible?

delicious purple cherokee tomatoes, fresh from the garden, a bit of s&p... after eating this almost everyday this past summer, i realized that i wanted to keep eating like this always.... its what made me change my major to nutrition & dietetics.

but i have always loved food, my mom is a great amazing cook.

Four Guests for Dinner

@buffy i agree with the David Boreanaz! do you watch the show Bones? love him in it!

1. Julia Child - she seems like such a friendly, loving person to meet and enjoy a meal with.
2. Alton Brown - He seems like he would be the funny uncle/grandpa type
3. My BFF, whom i shall call L - she loves good food as much as Idoo, and we would have a grand time.

Scrambing...and not eggs. Dinner 1/23

I love the "What's For Dinner?" posts! they always make me hungry and give me great ideas! keep them coming!

dinner for me was a burrito from Chipotle :)

Introduce Yourself!

I'm a former lurker - made this account just for this post! i've been lurking for about 3 ish years. I'm 20, and also live in Columbus, OH! I'm pretty excited to see so many buckeyes on here, i always assumed it was all ppl from NYC or East Coast. I'm totally in for a Columbus SE meet-up!

I'm a sophomore at Ohio State, and partially due to this website and many many hours of reading food blogs, in the fall I will be starting the Nutrition/Dietetics program. I can't wait!

(I also the North Market, Pastaria Seconda is utterly amazing)

I'm a sucker for pretty much any thing with carbs, pasta, bread, potatoes. I'm the second oldest of 5 kids and my mom always cooked homemade meals for us, and always tried to introduce us to new things.

I sometimes feel a little out of place here, being that I love a good Brie or duck liver as much as the next person, but I still like canned ravioli, jarred olives, and spaghettios.
