Cheddar Box Café

Restaurant review of Cheddar Box Café in Louisville KY, Central Kentucky restaurant review of Cheddar Box Café,

Review guidelines:

1 Fork = I would rather eat dog food.
2 Forks = I would eat there if I was starving.
3 Forks = Not bad; someplace I would occasionally consider eating.
4 Forks = A good place to eat; I will put it into my rotation of places I dine frequently.
5 Forks = One of my all time favorites!

One caveat to note – I am allergic to fish and seafood, so if you are looking for those recommendations, you will have to consult someone else.

Because I have a daughter-in-law with Celiac and a really good friend who is Vegetarian, I will try to point out whether those options are present when I review a restaurant.

Apple Pie

delicious apple pie, what to do with the apples that you picked, desserts,
I love me some apple pie, but live with a husband who does not like pie at all and a preschooler who is still figuring out what he likes.  Normally I don't get or make pies unless there will be people over to help eat it, but I had lots of apples from our apple picking we did (Apple Picking at Marker-Miller Orchards) that needed to be used.

A Simple and Elegant Way to Decorate the Dinning Room Chandelier for Christmas

decorating a dinning room chandelier for Christmas, simple and elegant way to decorate a chandelier for Christmas, simple Christmas decorating,
This Christmas I'm all about keeping the decorating as simple as possible.  We've had this chandelier (I bought it for $35 through a Facebook yard sale group) for about two years now and have never decorated it.  The chandelier we had before looked like it came from the 80's, but I tried to make it look nice at Christmas time - it never worked.

A Simple and Elegant Christmas Centerpiece

creating a simple and elegant Christmas dinning table centerpiece, how to create a Christmas centerpiece with items you may already have, Christmas decorations,
For the longest time our centerpiece at Christmas was a candle with a plastic ring of poinsettias on our kitchen table and chairs.  Since then, we've received an antique dinning room set that just screamed something simple and elegant as a centerpiece.
