Where’s Your Beef?

You would be hard-pressed to catch my friend Stacy Darnold perusing the meat counter at a grocery store. She has enough beef at home in her freezer to last her family for a year. “I don’t know when the last time I bought beef from a store was,” she says. “I’d never buy beef from a grocery store unless for some weird reason I’m out of beef.” Of course, with a freezer full of beef at home, this never happens.

Stacy is just one of the many people who have joined the growing trend of buying quarter or half portions of cows directly from farms. Granted, as a self-proclaimed “farm kid,” this is not a new practice for her. “We always did this growing up. We bought beef from our neighbor.”...

Food News Round-Up

Benefit to Support Bread and Cup Co-Owner Karen Shinn

Upon walking into Bread and Cup in Lincoln nothing particularly screams local – at least not in the typical Lincoln, Nebraska sense. No bright Husker-red walls or football memorabilia, but in a way it represents everything that local should be – a place for community and conversation.

The capital city restaurant turned five this year while one of the co-owners, Karen Shinn, battled reoccurring stage IV ovarian cancer. She was first diagnosed in 2010. She and her husband, Chef Kevin Shinn, are revered members of the regional culinary scene. A benefit dinner to help offset Karen’s medical costs will be held in her honor on Sunday,...

You Won’t Be Sorry: Varsity Sports CafĂ© and Roman Coin Pizza

It’s all quiet in my house on a Monday night and my husband is nowhere to be found. I look in the kitchen, the bedroom and then wait. It hits me. Just when I realize he is downstairs in his man cave, I hear, “Get the ball – hustle!!!” Ah yes, it’s football season. The time of year where we lose our male loved ones to a sports bar and plates of nachos and wings. So when the following Monday came around, I decided that it was time to join in and experience what this world was like. To do that, we went to Varsity Sports Café and Roman Coin Pizza at their new Midtown location. Between the array of televisions on a wall, there is truly not a bad seat in the house to watch a game. Plus, on...
