Manoli’s

grilled octopus with fave beans and lemon piece on white plate from manolii's

Manoli’s I’ve got to admit when I first heard of Manoli’s, I assumed it was a typical Greek restaurant that served oversized gyros, sides of lemon rice, and desserts drenched in honey. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good gyro here and there but they aren’t an item I crave. Well, let me just…

The Old Dutch Store

The Old Dutch sandwich

The Old Dutch Store I’m a sucker for a tasty sandwich. One of my favorite places to get my sandwich fix is The Old Dutch Store. It’s a deli meets specialty Dutch goods store. Most of the sandwiches come with meat in tube form (liverwurst, pate, salami, teawurst, or pork loin), tomato, mayo or miracle…

Conestoga Ranch

Conestoga Ranch Last year, I swore off Bear Lake. I remember rather vividly thinking I will never, ever go back to Bear Lake. Why? Because of a disastrous attempt at camping with my 15 month old.  I’m pretty sure I had been looking at Instagram accounts of amazing, overachiever moms and thought to myself, “I’m…

Tea Bar

Tea Bar Taro boba. It’s one of my all time favorite drinks. Honestly, I shouldn’t like it. I’m not traditionally a sweet drink type of person. Sweetened ice tea? Ewww. Lemonade? I’ll pass. Gatorade? No thank you! But offer me a taro boba or bubble tea as it’s often called, and I’m silly putty in…

Rich’s Bagels Bagels. I could eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I dream of bagels embedded with everything seasoning, toasted, and smeared with a thick layer of veggie cream cheese. Where might I get this bagel fix I speak of? Rich’s Bagels. Located in Holladay, it has a complete locals feel. With patio type…

Five 5eeds

Five 5eeds I fell in love with Five 5eeds simply by happenstance. Last summer, I was enjoying a staycation in Park City. In desperate need for lunch, my husband and I read a few Yelp reviews of Five 5eeds and decided to take a chance. Well, let me tell you, I’m glad we took that…

Brass Smoothies

Brass Smoothies I remember my first Brass Smoothie like it was yesterday. Honestly, before ordering I questioned how someone could justify paying so much for a smoothie. Well, after my first sip, I immediately knew the answer. I could justify paying a bit more for Brass Smoothies because they were downright DELICIOUS. I also remember…
