Duet: Bacon, Asparagus, Spinach and Asiago Frittata / Sarah Vaughan “After Hours at the London House”

The food: Frittata sounds fancy, but it’s really just Italian for baked omelette. This hearty breakfast dish is quick, easy, and tasty. You can load it up with any ingredients your family likes and have a substantial meal on the table in about 10 minutes. There’s really just no excuse for sending your kids (or yourself, for that matter) out the door with[…]

On Tour: Vintage Vinyl

When St. Louisans think about buying records, they head first to Vintage Vinyl. For more than 30 years, the store has operated out of a storefront on historic Delmar Ave., in the artsy U City Loop district just outside of downtown (and very near one of the country’s largest urban parks, Forest Park).
