Festive Foods For Fall: Betty’s (GF)

It’s that time of year when the steely eyed mammoth’s of the corporate world make a frenzied dash toward the finish line; where the dubious notion of “getting it all done before the holiday’s” seems possible; and where cold’s and germs run ramped. For anyone who hates cold’s as much as I do then you […]

Festive Foods for Fall: The Roycroft Inn (GF)

“Eat, Drink and be Enlightened”- that is the motto of the Roycroft Inn, and they couldn’t be more right. With a party of eight our journey began; stepping back in time to 1905.  Walking through the gigantic oak doors the first thing that smacks you in the face is the smell of yesteryear; that antique […]

Festive Foods For Fall: Savory Family Restaurant

How does pumpkin spice pancakes with granola sound? Or Creamy pumpkin soup? How about butternut squash soup or spaghetti squash with turkey cinnamon meatballs? If none of these sound appetizing then this isn’t the article for you. But if you’re anything like me then you love what this time of year brings to the table; […]

What’s in a name…..Siena Restaurant (GF)

The phrases “fine dining” and “casual” don’t usually pair together. In most cases one cancels out the other; not at Siena Restaurant. Located at 4516 Main St. Snyder NY; Siena Restaurant takes the creature comforts of a rustic cabin in the woods and mixes it with the class and elegance that we’ve come to know […]

The Byrd House- more than meets the eye (GF)

When I think of a “bird house” I think of 4 or 5 pieces of wood that are carefully crafted into a cute artistic home where birds can find food and shelter. The Byrd House Restaurant located at 4246 North Buffalo Rd, in Orchard Park NY has done much the same thing; for us non […]

Digestion Suggestion Review: Location is NOT everything

Liberty Hound, located at 1 Naval Park Cove, is perfectly situated to view the best of what the city of Buffalo has to offer. With waterfront seating, live bands, and a gorgeous view of the Naval ships; this restaurant should be top notch. The atmosphere has a rustic industrial charm to it and the wrap […]

BBQ to the rescue! (GF)

As Rocky found Adrian- I found BBQ! Oh and how I’ve missed it so. If you’re thinking to yourself “I have gallbladder issues, high cholesterol and/or lactose issues; I can’t eat BBQ”. I’m here to tell you………you’re wrong! Just down the road, at 5007 Lake Ave. in Blasdell NY is none other than BW’s Smokin’ […]

Beat the Heat…..

These are truly the dog days of summer. WNY is not exactly known for its sweltering summers; this summer however is the warmest I can remember. With the mild winter that was just had and now the searing heat- maybe just maybe we’ve taken a turn for the better. Although- it is as they say- […]

No cheese…. please!

In dire need of coffee you walk  into a Tim Hortons; you happen to overhear a conversation that goes a little something like this: ” I’d like a small coffee (pause)- an egg white sandwich with ham and no cheese (pause)-and a small orange juice. (Wait……) Yes that’s correct oh but NO cheese. Yes that […]

Digestion tip of the week: Mental health on the cheap!

I had a very interesting conversation the other day that sparked this week’s digestive tip. We have all felt the affects of economic struggles.
