Re: “Smashburger

I am shocked - SHOCKED by these negative reviews! I am a bit of a food snob. I know good food and I demand it (and that isn't to say you can't get good food at cheap prices because you definitely can) I LOVE Smashburger. I absolutely love it. The burger is high quality. I don't mind paying a slightly higher than "average" price for quality. The taste of the meat is delicious. It is weird but it always tastes like yummy bacon. They use real, fresh ingredients. I love their Spicy Baja Burger. It is sooo good! As for the fries, I always get the sweet potato smashfries. They are some of the best fries I ever had and even better with the fry sauce.

Re: “The Goodness Land at Boise International Market

I was there a few weeks ago - My mom and I couldn't decide where to eat, so we shared a shawarma platter at Goodness Land AND a platter with red tibs and black lentils at Kibrom's ... BOTH so good!! I love the International Market!! There are a lot of other great places to eat "coming soon." I just know I am going to be there all the time! ;-)

Re: “Idaho Chews on Cottage Food Bill

"Our response to that is, 'It's direct-to-consumers so ask them if you can see their kitchen,'" said Draper. "It's more about choice."

"This is what self-regulation looks like," added Erskine. "If you walk up to somebody's booth at a farmers market and you don't feel like their hands are clean or their clothes are clean or their display is clean and you have questions, you get to choose for yourself, 'Do I support this product or not?' There's going to be a handful of people that just cannot wrap their head around that."

Am I supposed to ask every vendor that I want to buy from if I can "see their kitchen"??

That is absurd.

I am ALL FOR small businesses like this ... but I also want to be 100% sure that the family pet isn't "helping" make the pie (if you know what I mean!) In a place like Boise where dogs are free to roam around Albertsons and other venues, people think nothing of it ... BUT I DON"T WANT ANYTHING IN MY FOOD THAT SHOULDN'T BE THERE!

I am 100% in favor of homes being inspected!

Re: “Uber Cars Are Rolling in Boise Today

BW forgot to mention that the tip is included in the fair! I have been using Uber every time I visit Seattle. I REAL like it!

Re: “Rolling in Dough Closed Sunday

I am NOT SURPRISED at all!!! Her bakery was pricey, inconsitant and had ZERO customer service.

Good Riddance!

Re: “Trader Joe's: What's In Store?

I LOVE TJ's so much ... but I also love Whole Foods. I think they compliment each other very well. For example, TJ's does not have a butcher or seafood department and Whole Foods does. TJ's has the better pantry items (BY FAR) etc

I will continue to shop BOTH stores on a regular basis ... as for the CO-OP, I HATE that store and could care less how they do. (Their "improvements" were too little to late when Whole Foods came to town as far as I am concerned!)
