Ingrid’s Kitchen

· No Comments

Ingrid’s Kitchen is one of those places I’ve heard about but just, for whatever reason, never visited.  I recently had the chance to go there for lunch with a friend, and while the food was pretty good, the bakery is what blew me away.  You’ll be amazed at the sheer number of cakes, cookies, and other desserts Ingrid’s master bakers whip up each day.

The 2012 Oklahoma City Autism Walk

· No Comments

There are many different awareness walks and conventions that take place around Oklahoma City throughout the year.  This May 5th, is the PieceWalk and 5k marathon put on by the good people at www.autismoklahoma.org.

The reason that this walk is so different from many of the others is that it is local.  This group is one that works to make sure that all of the money they raise is directly given to help families with autistic families in Oklahoma, and one hundred percent of the money raised stays in Oklahoma to benefit families here.  In fact, the walks for the last two years have helped to provide funding to programs that have benefitted families all throughout the state.  There have been close to $87,500 worth of grants awarded in the last two years alone.

December – hey, where’s my white Christmas?

· No Comments

Many people think of Christmas in December.  In fact, with the retail stores pushing the holiday as hard as they are, it’s often hard to think of anything else after the month of September.  However, the one thing besides Santa Claus that most people associate with Christmas is a rare occurrence in Oklahoma.   In the central and southern parts of the state, a white Christmas is as rare as if we were located in the deep, warm southern part of the US.

January – ice, ice, baby!

· No Comments

Vanilla Ice jokes aside, January in Oklahoma is a very temperamental time of year.  The temperature can range from something so bone-chilling cold that you think you must have gone to visit a place near the artic circle, to a beautiful, sunny, day that registers in the mid-fifties.  Really, though, the temperature doesn’t matter all that much because the wind can negate anything that the thermometer says.
