    A Plate of Bacon as BIG as Your Head

    If you’re driving down I-75 in Birch Run, Michigan, you’re not likely to notice anything special about Tony’s. Nestled quietly next to a gas station, it sits, unassuming and unremarkable. At first glance, you might even think it’s a truck stop.

  • The Art of Packing

    The Art of Packing

    Number One Rule: If at all possible Do Not check your bags. By packing smartly, a carry-on can get you through a good 5 to 7 days on the road. Pack one basic color. For me, black works well and can be worn casually by day and accessorized for evening. Keep your “complimentary” color to one or maybe two. Wear your bulkiest pair of shoes and “outer wear” such as sweater and/or jacket on the plane. I accessorize with a […]

    Chicken Divan (Or as we call it, Chicken Divine)

    My first experience with Chicken Divan was when a friend talked me into trying it.  We were having lunch in a restaurant that specialized in a variety of crepe dishes, so my encounter was not the usual presentation.  I was intrigued but still skeptical when my dish arrived, but I had to confess it did look and smell amazing.  Light golden crepes, lightly drizzled with the same creamy Mornay sauce that spilled from the ends, revealed juicy grilled chicken breast […]
