Hang in there

How to fashionably beat a hangover


Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
OK, so I’m a pretty responsible drinker. Glass (or two) of wine with dinner, cocktails with friends — those are my M.O., not Jägerbombs and keggers.

Carb crush

Forget Wonder Bread. Break open fresh, warm artisan bread at these metro bakeries.


Food and Drink Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
Seven days a week, Prairie Thunder Baking Company is working on bread. Never mind that the bakery and cafe is only open six; it takes time to create and bake the artisan breads for which Prairie Thunder, 1114 Classen Drive, is known.

Happy Birthday to Shopgirl!


Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
I turn 29 this week. That’s still a baby to some, ancient to others, but just right to me.

On the move

Local stores are playing musical chairs: expanding, name-changing musical chairs. Confused?


Features

Jenny Coon Peterson

It can be hard when a store moves. Even with lots of notice, many people will miss the lead-up to the big move and just assume the shop popped its clogs. It doesn’t help when old addresses keep showing up in Google.

Chocolove

Whether it’s dark, milk or white, we love chocolate.


Food and Drink Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
In ancient Mexico, its beans were used as currency. And in 17th century England, it was a rare delicacy. Today, chocolate still inspires us, from the traveling exhibit dedicated to it that recently visited the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History to the rows of truffles available at 42nd Street Candy Company.

Inside and online

How do you get a shopping fix in a snowpocalypse?


Features

Jenny Coon Peterson

So here’s a hypothetical: Say there’s a huge snowstorm — like massive and “The Day After Tomorrow”-sized — but you really, really feel like shopping. And all the local stores are closed.

ShopGirl has a cheese addiction


Food and Drink Features

Some people have a drinking habit. I have a cheese habit — make that an artisan cheese habit.

Animal prints

Not just stuff for animals, either


Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
Once a year, I give my two cats catnip. Charlie, the smarter of the two, gives it a bit of a sniff and then goes on about his business.

All in the family

Using recipes collected from a lifetime in the kitchen with her Italian family, Cathy Cummings turns out traditional, homemade favorites in her Vito’s Ristorante.


Restaurant Reviews

Jenny Coon Peterson
There’s nothing like a bowl of pasta and some fresh bread to warm you up on a bitter winter night. Throw in an intimate dining room and a bottle of wine, and you’ll forget it’s blowing like mad outside.

Hot cuppa

Brewing is booming in the metro


Food and Drink Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
It’s sad, but the only way I can stand coffee is if it’s mixed with chocolate and topped with whipped cream and maybe sprinkles.
