So, what's been going on?

Wild Alaskan Salmon is available, at 18$ per pound, it’s gonna be a long season.

Alaskan Halibut is beautiful, and half the price.

Fresh artichokes are available, so are English peas and pearl onions.

I like shucking peas, don’t mind trimming artichokes, absolutely hate peeling pearl onions!

I visited Murry Hill Farms in Wakeman, Ohio. It’s a wonderful place. Makes me want to live on a farm.

Fiddleheads are in too, but I don’t mind cleaning them.

Fresh picked Asparagus from Murry Hill Farm is awesome, so are the Blue Eggs!

When is the farmers market going to get started already? Lakewood? Kamms?

Organization is the key to success.

At the restaurant we buy milk in a five gallon bag that we pour into a bucket with a spout that has a label that reads, “Leaky”?

The Black River Café sign is very small, and oddly placed, if you can’t find us, we are across the street from Subway.

After all the fuss, now my dad want’s to try sushi.

If you where the only two people in a restaurant 20 minutes after they closed would you feel uncomfortable?

I need to learn how to make 2-3 unique desserts and stick to them.

My 40 minute commute is sometimes tiresome, sometimes relaxing.

Why isn’t the volume level of music in the dining room ever consistant from night to night?

The volume level needs to be adjusted as to mute the sound of our foul language coming out of the kitchen.

I bought a pink knife with hopes no one would ask to use it, this stategy has worked!

Lamb meatballs with tomato sauce and feta has been the only special that bombed so far.

Why do the Sysco croissants suck so badly? Can you say, “Flake”

Lake Erie Creamery and Mayfield Creamery are two very awesome local companies.
