Why is meal-planning such a headache? Now that school is back in session, everyone's schedule is getting busier. I decided to take the hassle out of my meal-planning and get a Fresh Meal box from The Dough Hook.

Reviewer: Liz Gordon-Hancock

At the back of Black Lab Trading Co., what was Jeanne's Kitchen has been revamped into Bystillwaters Bistro.

It's been open for four months now. Heather Cox, the owner, is doing something different with this restaurant. The decor is much the same, with exposed brick and painted mural and stencilling in colonial style. Cox has added plush, high-backed chairs to sit and relax over your meal.

Before walking through the door of Viva Maria, all I knew about the place was that it was an Italian restaurant with big portions and huge support from both the local community and ONU campus crowd. My husband and I walked up to the restaurant around 8 p.m. on a weeknight.
