Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Elderberry Syrup

With Coronavirus season just around the corner, it’s mildly dismaying to find the ventilator masks out-of-stock at big box retailers.  But at least we have elderberry syrup.  Elderberry syrup boasts centuries of experience in treating colds and flu. Actually, it boasts centuries of experience in treating lots of things, including infections, burns and high cholesterol.

B.Y.O.B. is based out of Louisville, Ohio. It’s a home bakery and custom catering business run by Chef Robert Monter, and the B.Y.O.B. doesn’t stand for Bring Your Own Beer. It stands for…Bring Your Own Bob? Nope, that’d be super cool though.

Guests walk through the doors, and into a room that is wall-to-wall gluten goodness. Breads and rolls and muffins and cookies, all piled high behind plexiglass doors, all waiting to be picked and purchased by guests. Grab a tray, serve yourself.  Fair disclosure: there […]

As we continue to wind our way through the season of sugarplums, a discussion of Dietsch Brothers is long overdue. It’s overdue, in part, because the Findlay candy company has been around since the 1930s.

Of all the places to set up shop for a Chinese take out, right next to the immortal Moy’s on campus seems like…well, the least likely spot for that sort of operation.  But then again, Millions of Milk Tea has a great deal more than Kung Pao Chicken and wontons. As the name suggests, beverages […]
