Mission Cantina

Strong and creative margaritas, with several fruit-infusions offered. They even make their own sour mix. The food is excellent, so much so that we hardly go anywhere else for Mexican.

White Barn Inn

For Five Star dining I expected at least a little stuffiness, but it just isn’t what The White Barn Inn is about. It’s definitely luxurious, but it’s like a celebrity interview that leaves you thinking, “you know, that George Clooney is just an everyday guy.”

Venison Chili, Petro’s-style

This is the recipe we start with when we make chili, but the final product always varies, depending on what we have on hand. This time around we had some incredibly flavorful venison on hand. A gift from our friend Anna whose dad scored it on a hunting trip.
