Body, mind and wallet

How to eat healthy without breaking the bank

by Danielle Welke
One of the biggest problems about trying to eat healthy — after figuring out what exactly “eating healthy” means — is the added cost. After all, it’s cheaper to eat fast food and pre-packaged dinners than it is to make a meal from scratch with all-natural ingredients, right?

He Ate, She Ate

Inside and out at Williamston's Riverhouse Inn

by Mark Nixon and Gabrielle Johnson
Tap-dancing taste buds Dining out has its distinct pleasures, especially when it literally means dining out. Given a perfect evening, there are few al fresco dining spots in Greater Lansing to match the Riverhouse Inn in Williamston. We picked the perfect evening. The humidity had...

She ate: Pushing the (egg) envelope

by Gabrielle Johnson
Let’s get the discussion about Naing Myanmar Family Restaurant’s location out of the way — it’s not great. As a lifelong Lansingite, there aren’t many areas of the city that make me feel uncomfortable. This is one of them. On our last visit, customers of the marijuana dispensary next door were having their custom orders prepared. The clientele was interesting.

He ate: A quirky love story

by Mark Nixon
There is a love story unfolding in South Lansing. I’ve only glimpsed the plot, but I don’t know the characters’ names and haven’t the foggiest how it will all turn out. If it doesn’t have a happy ending, though, I will curse the cruel fates.

Vintage models

A look at the winners of the 2014 Michigan Wine Competition

by Michael Brenton
The 37th Annual Michigan Wine Competition was held last month at East Lansing’s Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center. It was the most recent iteration of an event whose genesis was the Michigan State Fair Wine Competition in 1977. Back then, wines from the state’s fledgling wine industry were judged at the Detroit fairground’s coliseum adjacent to pigs and cattle. One wonders whether wines in those competitions were notable for barnyard aromas.

He ate: Looks great, tastes better

by Mark Nixon
Memo to the owners of Black Cat Bistro: Check to see who prepared the food at about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 22. Specifically, who prepared the asparagus tartar, the peanut crusted goat cheese fritters, the Albert Ave. street corn and the avocado crabwich. Seek them out. Praise them. Shake their hands and ask them to recreate these dishes every day, right to the very last drop of balsamic reduction.

She ate: Perfection on a plate

by Gabrielle Johnson
First, the bad: The website looks like it’s only half-developed and doesn’t list prices. You’ve got to pay for parking in downtown East Lansing. And it’s pricy — I’m not made of money, a fact I frequently lament. The good: Everything else. Everything we had there during two separate meals was fresh, innovative and worth eating again.

Mission: unmissable

Old Mission Peninsula wineries provide world-class vintages

by Michael Brenton
Last month I reviewed recent winery additions on Leelanau Peninsula. A few miles away, across the West Bay, lies the equally picturesque Old Mission Peninsula, a narrow, rolling finger of land: 19 miles long and up to four miles wide. Jutting out into the moderating waters of Grand Traverse Bay, the marine influence, glacial soils and rolling hills make this one of the grape-friendliest places in the state.

‘Dark Horse’ rising

Mid-Michigan brewery gets national attention with History Channel reality show

by Allan I. Ross
Spirits were high last Sunday at Dark Horse Brewing Co. in Marshall. Beneath a ceiling full of dangling beer mugs, families ate lunch at the high-top tables and couples sat at the bar quaffing craft beer. Owner/brewer Aaron Morse was nowhere to be seen — he had just wrapped up an appearance at the 17th annual Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival in Ypsilanti the day before. Otherwise, though, it was business as usual, with one little proviso: In about 48 hours the little brewpub 45 minutes southwest of Lansing would have its national television debut — and with it, lots of curiosity seekers.
