One Clean Plate - Caroline Wik

I don’t need a holiday as an excuse to pig out on celebrate cheese, much less mac & cheese, but when there is one you bet I’ll celebrate it. So for National Mac & Cheese day on July 14th (it’s like Valentines but for mac & cheese!), we were lucky enough to get samples of Parrano’s cheese along with a recipe for Mac & Cheese that features it.

One Clean Plate - Mikesell's Potato Chips - Samples of the Sweet Chili and Sour Cream and Reduced Fat Tuscan Spice potato chips by Caroline Wik

Mikesell’s, the Dayton based potato chip company, has launched two new flavors of chips this month along with updated branding – and to celebrate we’re hosting a contest for free chips (Interested? Keep reading!)

We recently got to sample the two new flavors before the launch: Sweet Chili and Sour Cream and Tuscan Spice. Let’s begin with the Sweet Chili. It’s a groovy cut chip flavored with sweet chili peppers and a bit of sour cream. Despite being “Sweet Chili” these chips offer a good mild kick of spice, with a cool finish.

Announcing Cincinnati Fall Recipe Week!

Halloween is over, the leaves are nearly finished turning and you can’t go far outside without encountering the cozy smell of a lit fireplace wafting from someone’s chimney – it’s Fall!

Along with that burning desire for delicious Fall fare, if you’re anything like us (which I hope we’ve already established), you may be thinking to yourself, “I wonder what kinds of fantastic Fall foods my favorite Cincinnati foodies will be cooking up this season…”

Good news everyone! You don’t have to wonder anymore.
