Shopping
December 3, 2013

Shopping for dads, grandpas and guys in general is tough. I have a few safe bets for you this holiday season though. On top of that, these gift ideas all support local businesses.

November 16, 2013

The Most Versatile of Bacons... Sweet Pepper Bacon

Food and Beverages
October 17, 2013

For several years I have thoroughly enjoyed a particular food that I feel like I owe it to the city of Wichita to profess my love for. On the surface it may strike you as a strange combination, and being a fairly picky eater it didn't immediately interest me. I'm very glad I tried it though... Sw...
