In the mood for some great BBQ? Check out Rosey's

My husband Mike recently tried Rosey's BBQ, a new restaurant in Jenkintown offering lots of awesome southern BBQ. The pork, ribs, chicken, and brisket were awesome, as well as the sweet potatoes, collared greens, and other sides (with the brisket as the highlight. He was RAVING.). They offer a full menu of great BBQ items, as well as a kids menu that any picky eater would like.

It's a bit unusual to find Memphis Pork ribs and Gumbo in Jenkintown, but according to many people I have spoken to, this BBQ is some of the best they have tasted.

Give it a try! Oh, and bring some of your favorite beer or drinks, it's BYO!

ULTA coming to Horsham Gate

Not too much exciting to report right now except that some signs are up and ULTA is coming to the Horsham Gate shopping center (the last vacancy in the shopping center). They have been hiring staff all month so we think they will be opening by May.

Great food at Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza

Tonight my family and I tried Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza for the first time, in the new Horsham Gate shopping center off Welsh Road. When we walked in we were surprised how crowded the restaurant was, but were quickly seated and had good service throughout the night.

Though the menu is somewhat limited (mostly pizza, salads, and a few of their specialties), we loved everything we ate. We got to sample some of their grilled chicken wings, which were awesome (and I never eat wings!). We also tried their coal-fired pizza, which we all loved. My kids gobbled down 2 and 3 pieces each! I had a great tomato mozzarella salad, too. We were very impressed with the food, happy with the pricing (dinner for 4 for $25!) and will definitely be heading back soon.

One note, though: the coal-fired pizza does take a decent amount of time to bake. So if you are with small, impatient, hungry kids like me, make sure you place your pizza order when you arrive.

Open for both lunch and dinner, and with bar service!

What I didn't know about Udder Delight!

Since the weather has been better I have been making more frequent trips over to Udder Delight in the Shop N Bag shopping center. This fun and happening ice cream shop has a great selection of hard ice creams that are amazing, water ice, soft service ice cream and yogurt, which can be flavored with over 50 flavors, and much more.

Some of the things that I didn't know about Udder Delight, that set it apart from other "typical" ice cream places, are that:

- They now make Homemade Ice Cream, every day it is made from scratch in the store.
- They have Low Cal drinks, smoothies, and yogurt.
- They have great water ice that is more affordable and bigger servings than others in the area. For the adults, they can do Spiked Water Ice -- you bring in your alcohol and they spike it for you. Large batches only…but it is amazing! Great for a party.
- They also have what they call Cow Patties (pictured to the right), fresh Hope’s Cookies baked in the store with your choice of ice cream.
- Try their frozen hot chocolate... amazing!

Of course, Udder Delight is also a great place to get an ice cream cake for your next party, or to host a unique party with crafts and sundae-making!

Stop by soon and enjoy all of these awesome treats with the great Spring weather!

Who doesn't wish that they could make some changes to their lives?! Well Josh Baskin one day innocently wishes to be 'big' at the fair after being made fun of for being too small and before he knows it, he's got an adults life, along with all of the problems that come with it!

Purchase tickets in advance or at the door.  $10 in advance for students and seniors, $12 at the door. $15 in advance for adults, $18 at the door.

Enjoy the show!

West Ave Grille Too in Dresher Opens

The West Ave Grille Too in Dresher opened this week and I was very excited to check it out yesterday for lunch with friends! Everyone loved their dish! I had a delicious grilled chicken sandwich and my friends had an egg white veggie omelet and a turkey avocado wrap. We agreed the prices were reasonable and we would frequent the joint. The service was great and we didn't wait for a table when we got there close to noon. When we left an hour later, the place was packed! They don't take reservations but they will take call ahead seating starting in a few weeks. The restaurant serves Breakfast and Lunch all day and has more than a dozen Dinner entrees that are served after 5pm. I am really excited to have a breakfast spot in the neighborhood and another restaurant that does good take-out close by. They have a few flat screen tv's on the wall which will be great when you need to watch a game. They do have a kids menu and it looks great! Their hours are: Tuesday-Thursday & Sunday 8:00AM-8:30PM and Friday & Saturday 8:00AM-9:30PM. The address is: 1650 Limekiln Pike and is located in the Dreshertown Shopping Center where Carambola used to be. Their phone number is 215-367-5428.
