Tower Inn Café

Tower Inn Café

This Sunday, we had brunch at Tower Inn Café in Ypsi. The original plan was to redeem a pair of brunch vouchers that I had purchased on Real Deal a while ago. However, Sunday morning before we left, I realized they were expired! Bummer. But, we were both craving brunch, so we decided to give … Continue reading

Brunch at Grange

I love going out for Sunday brunch. It always seems like a special occasion and I never feel guilty about indulging in my favorite rich, savory foods. This Sunday I redeemed a LivingSocial deal at Grange Kitchen & Bar, a restaurant at which I had never previously eaten, but had been eager to try. I … Continue reading

Ravens Club Brunch, Take II–No Fools Here

Ravens Club Brunch, Take II–No Fools Here

Can you believe it’s April? Wowza. No April Fools’ jokes on MGNN today, but I must admit that I fell for a few other bloggers’ fooleries today, (like HTP’s dog cloning post!) before realizing the date. Since it is April, that meant I didn’t have much longer to use my second LivingSocial deal for brunch … Continue reading

Raspberry Pancakes and Handbags

Raspberry Pancakes and Handbags

I have been positively obsessed with raspberries for the past few weeks. Mostly because they are the only organic berries I’ve encountered in my grocery so far this year, but also because they are probably my favorite fruit. I eat them atop my Greek yogurt nearly daily. Yesterday morning I plopped a few into my … Continue reading

Blueberry Banana Pancakes

Blueberry Banana Pancakes

This weekend I had a ripe bunch o’ naners I needed to use, and an abundance of berries, so I made these Blueberry Banana Pancakes, inspired by this recipe from Taste of Home. My additions to the original recipe included cinnamon and nutmeg, and I substituted all-purpose flour for whole wheat flour. Thick, fluffy ‘cakes! … Continue reading

Benny’s family Dining

Today, with my in-laws, we decided to try out a new diner (well, it’s not “new,” per se, but new to us) in Ann Arbor near campus called Benny’s Family Dining. It was your pretty standard diner fare, and I ordered the Vegetarian Omelet which contained mushrooms, tomatoes, green pepper, onion, and Swiss cheese. The … Continue reading

Moonwinks and Skillets

Moonwinks and Skillets

Howdy! It sure has been a gloomy week. But I heard rumors of 70+ degree weather this weekend. I can handle that! Yesterday I tried out a new (to me) café located just up the street from my office, in the modest village of Dixboro, called Moonwinks. The parking lot and inside were bustling, but … Continue reading
