Look who’s back for another edition of my unofficial #comfortfoodcrawl. This time, I ventured out to downtown East Lansing’s Black Cat Bistro. During the height of the pandemic, I saw … more
Potato salad isn’t supposed to be a main event. Its humble job is to support other dishes as a kind of chunky mayonnaise — a creamy and tangy mortar between the important dishes. But the … more

It translates to “Spring Pasta” from the Italian, so forgive me for assuming Pasta Primavera is a classic springtime Italian dish. But while Primavera sounds classy, it turns out Pasta … more
 The main purpose of a turnip is to feed hungry people, and the hakurei, pronounced like “samurai,” turnip is no exception.   We aren’t talking about the kind of hunger … more
an’t seem to get enough birria tacos. Last week, I counted at least a dozen local restaurants and food trucks that served some variation of the traditional Mexican dish — which is essentially a taco-quesadilla crossbreed that you dunk into a rich beef consommé.  more
Morels have no psychoactive properties, but they are definitely magical. The caps have a brainy look that might make you feel like you’re hallucinating, but these whacky, whimsical mushrooms … more
Sometimes you just want a burger and fries. But for those looking to make that craving a healthier, more natural dining experience … more
