Lunch at The Flipside Grille in Magnolia


Lunch at The Flipside Grille in Magnolia.

They were kind enough to give me a preview of next week's Special of the Week; they'll be serving Pineapple Barbecue Chicken with Shrimp and one side.

Love the housemade Potato Chips at The Flipside Grille! It's rare in Stark County to find a place in Stark County that makes them without tasting burned. They nail it, perfect, every time!!

Tacos For Breakfast At The Whipple Cafe!


Breakfast at The Whipple Cafe, one of Stark County, Ohio best breakfast restaurants.

Breakfast tacos is a dish that you will not find, to the best of my knowledge, anywhere in Stark County except for The Whipple Cafe in Canton.

They load scrambled eggs, cheese, bacon and home fries on tortillas, you get two tacos in an order, and give you lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, salsa and refried beans to dress it up!

Breakfast Tacos at The Whipple Cafe in Canton, this is a breakfast I will definitely be having again.

A Visit to Exploration Gateway at Sippo Lake Park


Exploration Gateway, at Sippo Lake Park in Perry Township, is one of my favorite spots in Sark County.

The Stark County District Library Sippo Lake Branch is at Exploration Gateway, the Stark County Park District has offices there and they also operate the Congressman Ralph Regula Canalway Center.

I love  the energy efficiency aspects of this landmark building and you can walk out on a second floor patio for a great view of Sippo Lake.

Lunch At Loby's Grille, Stark County's Best Burger Restaurant



The first "Taking Stark County's Pulse" poll of 2016, Best Burger Restaurant in Stark County, Ohio, kicks off this week.

With that in mind, I couldn't think of a better spot to go for a late lunch than Loby's Grille. Loby's was the winner of the 2013 Best Burger poll.

 They have a double bacon cheeseburger on the menu, served with fresh cut fries, that will knock out your hearty appetite! It rates two thumbs up!

You never know what you might find on the "Specials" board at Nut House Saloon in Richville. I went there for lunch today.

Easterdays Flower and Gift Shop, Where Stark County, Ohio Shops For Christmas


Shopping at locally-owned Stark County businesses is a priority in our household and we make every effort to support small businesses

That's why when we decided to get a new Christmas tree we went to Easterdays Flower and Gift Shop in Jackson Township this weekend.

We were able to get a beautiful seven-foot pencil tree, which they'd be using for display, at 30% off the regular price!
