Maybe you can’t hit the beach this summer, or maybe you just want a safer way to achieve that bronzed glow. Check out these sunless tanner tips to get that just-got-back-from-vacation look without leaving your home.
I’ve seen a lot of jokes on social media about how people are using ice cream as a coping mechanism during the coronavirus pandemic. So for this month’s restaurant review, we decided to try out a couple of our local ice cream shops because SAME.
When the weather is nice, all I want to do is be outside—even for meals. As I write this, I don’t know what life will look like in June. But one thing I’m confident we’ll all be able to do is have a picnic, even if it’s just in our backyards.
I spent this spring hiking in and around Stark County and discovering all kinds of beautiful places I’d never visited before. If you’re looking for a scenic adventure this summer, here are some of my recommendations.

I bought a Bundt pan on a whim at HomeGoods last summer, in part because it was $7 and that seemed like a deal, and in part because I figured it was worth having around in case I was struck with an urge to bake a coffee cake.

I’m writing about this month’s recipe sitting under a blanket and hoping the winter weather advisory that’s been issued doesn’t end up being as serious as it sounds. In my heart, though, it’s 75 and sunny. And hopefully, by the time you read this, that will be the reality (or closer to the reality. I understand April in Ohio is still a big gamble.)
