Boulevard Bistro

Boulevard Bistro

One of the things that most often happens with urban sprawl is that you find entire newly developed communities that consist solely of national chain restaurants. You know what I mean. For a 10-20 mile radius all your dining options are are fast food chains and casual dining along the lines of Chili's and Outback Steakhouse. If you want a good, farm-to-fork style meal from an independent owner, it means getting in your car and driving.

Fast Food for Tweens

Fast Food for Tweens

Paige Schilt

Feeding a tween is like riding a rollercoaster. Some days it’s exhilarating: we’re intrepid explorers, discovering new flavors together! Other times it’s the pits: we’re stuck in a rut and we’re going to be eating mac and cheese for the rest of our lives!

My 10-year-old son is by turns adventurous and avoidant. He loves sushi but hates sandwiches. He’s into spicy foods but refuses to taste bananas or mashed potatoes. As a busy parent, I’ve developed a few strategies to help my temperamental tween try new things and get the nutrients he needs:
