With Mother’s Day just around the corner (Sunday, May 10 in case you’re a little behind), it’s time to start brainstorming ideas for the perfect gift. Rather than head to a big-box shop this Mother’s Day, treat mom to something local. We wouldn’t be who we are today without all the care, love, and hard work that our moms have put in over the years, so let’s all be sure to show our appreciation!

Mouth Watering Old Forge Style

Over the last couple of years leading into the Lenten season, I’ve written a few blogs on pizza (okay four to be exact, but who’s counting). These blogs have named my “Top 10,” some local legendary pizza places, and even a few obscure ones. Regardless of what my lists entailed, they always opened up a can of worms and some great social media debate.

Once even some great banter where a woman told me I was crazy as Domino’s had the best pizza in Lehigh Valley. Nothing against the Domino’s franchise, but come on, really?

A Hungry Nine-Year-Old

“Mom, Dad, I’m hungry.” This phrase is common place in our household, especially with a son that seems to always have his head in the refrigerator. If your house is like ours, we are often in need of a cooking break (more my wife than me) so the next question is, where should we go?” Our son, Noah, is as picky as they come when it comes to eating out.

So, I interviewed one hungry nine-year-old and here are his recommendations. I had to take some liberties and make some modifications, but all-in-all, this is his list. I hope it helps those in need with finding some new, and perhaps some old, eating establishments that are definitely kid-friendly.
