Krazy Jim’s Blimpy Burger

Krazy Jim’s Blimpy Burger

It recently occurred to me that an Ann Arbor restaurant staple is blatantly lacking a presence on MegGoesNomNom. (Have you seen my giant compiled list of restaurant reviews, by the way?) But don’t worry – I am here to remedy that! This summer, Blimpy Burger will be closing at its current well-known location at the … Continue reading

What’s Up In Ann Arbor

What’s Up In Ann Arbor

Hey nommers! This week has flown by. Just a complete whirlwind. No joke! It has just been crazy for me at work the last couple weeks. Yesterday was the most insane day, when I got to work at 7:20 AM to prep for a last minute meeting and my access badge wouldn’t let me into … Continue reading

Buffalo Chicken Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing

Buffalo Chicken Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing

For the last several months, I have read in multiple sources that research has shown that a calorie isn’t a calorie. Not all calories are created equal. I read several healthy cooking magazines, such as Cooking Light and Eating Well, and this has been a hot topic as of late. While I’m no registered dietitian, … Continue reading

Cheesy Beef Macaroni Scramble

Cheesy Beef Macaroni Scramble

Alas, a Michigan win just wasn’t in the cards in last night’s NCAA National Championship game. Clearly Ann Arbor’s beloved Wolverines had an amazing season for which they should be incredibly proud. It’s always great to be a Michigan Wolverine. In other news, you know I love sharing simple, healthy recipes with you, and that … Continue reading

National Championship Bound

National Championship Bound

Didja watch the game last night? Didja, didja? We did. As a pair of Michigan alums, the huz and I were obviously super-psyched for last night’s basketball game against Syracuse at the Final Four. Anticipating HUGE crowds downtown Ann Arbor, we headed just a few miles outside of town, to Aubree’s in Ypsilanti Township. We … Continue reading

Roger Monk’s Happy Hour

Roger Monk’s Happy Hour

A restaurant and bar offering daily specials that is less than two miles from one’s workplace seems like a natural Happy Hour choice, right? It does. So I don’t know why I haven’t visited Roger Monk’s for Happy Hour more often. Apparently “back in the day” (e.g., over three years ago), Roger Monk’s used to … Continue reading

Spinach Mushroom Enchiladas

Spinach Mushroom Enchiladas

I’m feeling self-indulgent today, so I think I’ll fill out this food survey that I found before I tell you about these enchiladas. Food Faves Survey: McDonald’s, Burger King, In-n-Out? McDonald’s. I worked there part-time for three years as a teenager. Nowadays I only allow myself to eat there a couple times per year. (Last … Continue reading
