The Great Debate: Dunkin Donuts vs Tim Hortons

The Great Debate: Dunkin Donuts vs Tim Hortons

It's a decision that most Western New Yorkers make every morning: Dunkin Donuts or Tim Hortons.

For most that decision is almost instinctual, but with both chains having a strong following we have to ask, who's better?

Ten dollar dinners: Greek Pita Wraps, Avgolemono and Rice Pudding Recipes

Ten dollar dinners: Greek Pita Wraps, Avgolemono and Rice Pudding Recipes

There are lots of great Greek restaurants in Western New York. We enjoy the food at the Royal Restaurant on Sheridan and Military in Tonawanda. They have great food, great service and their prices aren't too bad. But sometimes, money is tight and we find ourselves at home craving a Greek food and no money to go out to dinner.

Kenmore Mercy Joins the Meatless Monday Movement

Kenmore Mercy Joins the Meatless Monday Movement

Kenmore Mercy Hospital is joining the “Meatless Monday” movement, by leaving meat off the cafeteria menu one day a week. The hospital’s cafeteria, Dining Inn Café, is now offering vegetarian entrees on Mondays under a plan announced earlier this month.  

The first Meatless Monday happened during World War I, when Americans were encouraged to give up some of their staple foods to aid the war effort. During World War II, it became a way to help supply food for war-torn Europe.
 

Decades later, the purpose has changed but the method is much the same – get creative, get meatless one day a week.  Today, the movement is spreading across the globe.  Kenmore Mercy Hospital is doing its part by helping cafeteria customers to be more aware of the impact their food choices have on the environment.
