While I was out grocery shopping the other day, I came across Smucker’s Seedless Red Raspberry Jam. That’s right, seedless!

Big-A** Sandwiches

Portland, OR- This sandwich cart was featured on the Travel Channel, so we gave it a try when in Portland. Like their name says, they specialize in making rather big sandwiches that include the fries and slaw within the sandwich. Reminds me of our beloved Primanti Bros in Pittsburgh & Fort Lauderdale.

Stratos Greek Taverna

Dallas, TX- Stratos Greek Taverna touts itself as providing “Global Greek Cuisine”.  The Gyro was ordinary in flavor, had too many giant discs of fresh onion, and the only highlight was the tzatziki sauce.

Sakura Japanese Restaurant

Brecksville, OH– Located in what I could call Downtown Brecksville, Ohio between a supermarket and a Panera Bread is Sakura Japanese Restaurant. We found it one day this past summer while looking for a supermarket. I can only review their takeout, since taking 2 toddlers to Hibachi alone is not a bright idea. Even for …
