Before we get to the latest edition of my Cleveland Blogs Round-Up, I have some news to share:
A couple weeks ago, I had the pleasure of chatting about Cleveland on Mystery Meet’s Find Dining podcast and the recording is now up.
The Find Dining podcast is for “foodies who love travel and travelers who love food.” Each week, host Seth Resler picks a different city and talks to someone about their local dining scene.
We discussed Greenhouse Tavern and I gave a couple more restaurant and non-food recommendations along the way.
Tune into: Find Dining – Cleveland Edition.
In keeping with the food theme, this round-up focuses on Cleveland blogs that made my mouth water the last few weeks. Bon appetit!
To Stay In or Dine Out? That is the Question.
#1 Eat*Drink*Cleveland previews SOHO’s Spanish Wine Dinner, which is happening this Thursday, May 9. Check out the menu on her blog post – I love the South-meets-Spain idea.
#2 As part of her “Because Prompts are Fun” series, iNeedaPlaydate writes about her favorite comfort food – Shepherd’s Pie and how making the dish stirs up childhood memories of visiting with family.
#3 I love catching up with friends over coffee. Julie from Wearing Mascara takes readers on a virtual La Croix date and catches us up on life.
#4 Each week, WhyCLE shares what she got in her Fresh Fork Market delivery, as well as the dishes her and Matt whip up from the vegetables, meats and random goodness they received. This latest post features a slow-cooker pot roast, the very best meatloaf, brat, beer and cheese soup, and more!
#5 Baking My Feelings contemplates the three things she would save from her apartment if there was a fire. She recommends making one of the three a snack (you never know when you’ll be hungry!) and shares a delicious Candied Peanuts Recipe for the road.
#6 With the temperatures rising, I’m in the mood for a patio and a cool dessert. Cooker Girl‘s Lemon Gelato Recipe hit the spot!
#7 Look, I’m a Cook’s grandmother turns 91 this year. Happy birthday, Oma! To celebrate, she tries her hand at Oma’s Cheesecake Recipe, which includes a trip to Hansa Import Haus in Ohio City for some Zwieback.
Let’s Work Off Those Calories Together
I’m stuffed just reading about all that food! Fortunately, I have a couple fitness-related posts to round out this round-up.
#8 Yoga returns to Tremont’s Lincoln Park this summer and Poise in Parma has all the details about Yoga Rocks the Park. Save the date because she’ll also be teaching the July 27 session!
#9 Maybe yoga’s not your thing? ROJ Running shares her Weekday Workout Routine. From Zumba and weight training to water aerobics and swimming, there are plenty of ideas to get you active.
#10 When it comes to fitness, I always need a
little lot of inspiration and I often find it from The Year of the Phoenix’s weight loss and healthy living journey. Happy One Year Blogiversary to her and congrats on going six months soda-free!
Do you have any Cleveland-based blogs you’d recommend for future round-ups?
