I write like it's my job - because it is! I have a Master's in English and love words: crossword puzzles, Scrabble games, Wordle, and, of course, good, old-fashioned books.
I'm a writer and editor at OnlyInYourState, and a contributing writer at Cincinnati Magazine. I love the Great Outdoors and am endlessly awestruck by this beautiful country of ours. Coffee keeps me going, yoga keeps me sane, my kids keep me grounded, and my writing keeps me inspired.
Cincinnati chili isn’t just every Ohioan’s favorite way to warm up on a cold day in the Buckeye State; it’s its very own food group! And while you can find this delicacy all across Ohio, nothing holds a candle to authentic Cincinnati chili, namely, Camp Washington Chili. No offense to Skyline and Gold Star or other local favorites like Blue Ash Chili and Empress, but the chili from Camp Washington Chili is in a league of its own, and people drive from all over Ohio to eat at this legendary chili parlor.
