Scouts Honor

Just as our new years resolutions to go to the gym and eat healthy fade into distant memory we enter Girl Scout Cookie season. That amazing time of year where neighbors and co-workers swindle you into buying boxes upon boxes of sinful delight. While on the treadmill the other evening (that’s right I’m still going on my resolution) I saw a news piece on one … Continue reading Scouts Honor

Bring On The Brunch! Whole Sum Kitchen

Not sure if anyone else experiences this, but every time I scroll through the newsfeed on my social media profiles its flooded with images of tanned millennials enjoying exotic fruit smoothie bowls in some far-off paradise.

Bring on The Brunch! The Mill

A few weekends ago I mentioned to my friend Lauren (of Presidents and Assholes) that I am trying to hit up a new brunch spot once a week and she was anxious for a chance to participate.

A couple weeks ago Sam and I went out for breakfast. I love the Highland Park area of St. Paul so we decided to head in that direction. My Foursquare app suggested Highland Café and Bakery. Highland Café is located in a little strip mall on Ford Parkway. It looked really tiny from the outside and I was a little hesitant going in but I was willing … Continue reading Bring On The Brunch! Highland Cafe and Bakery

After listing … Continue reading Bring On The Brunch! Shar’els Cafe

Bring On The Brunch! Copper Hen II

Last week I wrote about my first visit to Copper Hen, and although it wasn’t a total disaster, I was dissapointed. I knew it must have been a rare situation since I have always heard wonderful things about this trendy Cakery & Kitchen. I decided I needed to give Copper Hen a second chance, and I’m glad I did.   I went back to Copper … Continue reading Bring On The Brunch! Copper Hen II
