I met Chloe Jacobs at our neighborhood’s Literary Guild event. One of my neighbors and friends hosted the event at her home. She is a very well-known organist. She even played the organ in Israel. She is one amazing accomplished world-cultured woman and I am so blessed to know her. She is well into her 80’s and I pray she will remain with us for years to come. Her husband turned their garage into her organ room and opened it up to the living room so that an audience can enjoy a full organ with the pipes and all. It is an amazing site to see and to experience the depth of the sound from that organ. Chloe Jacobs: Harpist for Events in Provo, Utah Chloe Jacobs is a harpist who is a student attending Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. She is also getting her certification to teach har...

Oh my… I discovered a hidden gem! Thai Neighbor Cuisine just made the top of my list of the best Thai restaurants in Provo Utah and Utah County! Delicious is an understatement! My visit was nothing short of exceptional, and I’m excited to share my experience with you. Finding the Best Dish at Thai Neighbor Cuisine 1 in Provo Utah Intrigued by their promise of authentic Thai flavors, I decided to try their famous Massaman Curry with Tofu. It’s loved for its creamy texture and aromatic spices. It didn’t disappoint! All their curries are made with coconut milk. My granddaughter ordered the Red Curry with Beef. This was also very tasty. You can specify your spice from 1 to 5, 1 is mild, 5 is spicy. We like spicy. We also enjoyed their Pad Thai with vegetables, a dish I’m usually cautious ab...

Where Was Fry Sauce Invented? Fry sauce, once called “pink sauce,” began in a small burger place in Provo during the 1950s. Two friends, Max Peay and Ron S. Taylor, who worked at an Arctic Circle franchise, mixed ketchup and mayo for fun. People loved it so much that it replaced regular ketchup. The sauce got really famous, and someone from Arctic Circle noticed it and took it to their main office. Even though Arctic Circle said it was theirs, everyone knew it began in that tiny Provo restaurant. Ron’s family later changed their place into Stan’s Drive-in, and the sauce continued to be super popular. Other burger spots in Utah, like Iceberg Drive Inn and Crown Burgers, started using it, too! The whole Arctic Circle story began in 1941 when Don Carlos Edwards opened his first restaurant ...

I was so happy to find the Provo Recreation Center when I moved to Provo. This is a state-of-the-art facility that feels safe and welcoming. I don’t like those gyms where it feels like a “meat market”. You know… those gyms where everyone is a bodybuilder, good-looking, and skinny? Yeah… not for me.The swimming pools are amazing. I love to take my grandkids there to play on the water-slides. The Provo Recreation Center has a huge indoor and outdoor pool areas. One of the pools is a lap pool, which is separated off from the other pools. This is super convenient for people who want to do laps for exercise and not be interrupted with kids splashing around, etc.The aesthetics at the Provo Rec Center are visually appealing. I love the combination of light woods with the metals. The decor is r...

I’ve got a culinary tale for you that’ll make your taste buds dance. Let’s talk about Cupbop Korean BBQ in Provo, Utah. If you haven’t heard of it yet, buckle up because this place is a flavor rollercoaster! Last year, when I was just new to Provo, I was wandering around and I stumbled upon Cupbop! And there it was, like a beacon of deliciousness calling my name. The vibe at Cupbop is super chill and friendly (one of the reasons why I kept coming back after the first try!). It’s the kind of place where you instantly feel at home. The décor is simple but inviting, with a touch of Korean flair that makes it unique. It’s casual, it’s cozy, and it’s the kind of place where you just know you’re going to have a good meal. But let’s get into the heart of Cupbop’s story, which is as fascinating...

Escape rooms are a truly unique and exciting experience that allows you to test your mental abilities and problem-solving skills in a fun and thrilling setting.

The first time I lived in Provo, Utah was in 1980. I was newly married with a young infant. We only lived here for a very short time before moving to be closer to family in California. Then we moved back to Provo in 1987, just seven years later. We lived here until 1990 before moving again to be closer to family — this time in Seattle, Washington. We eventually moved to Florida in 1995, and I lived there for the next 26 years. However, I always dreamed of moving back to the Provo Hills and Provo Canyon. I missed the mountains, the spirit, the people, and my church centrality. In Florida, I lived less than a 5-minute walk to the Wellington Chapel, but the geographical boundaries of our ward were so large. It was hard to connect and be close to each other, living so far from away. Most of...

What is Provo Utah Known For? Mountains, Brigham Young University, and Mormons, (members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, shortened version: LDS).Over the years, Provo Utah has grown into the second largest city in Utah. Salt Lake City is the largest city in Utah. Mormon Culture in Provo While over 93% of Provo Utah are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, there are still people who are not members of the church who love to live here in Provo.

  My youngest son turned 21 years old. I have a tradition in my family to take the adult birthday kid out to lunch or dinner. He chose dinner at the India Palace in Downtown Provo, Utah. What a great choice! We love the different Indian regional foods from around India. Curry is one of our favorites! Since turmeric is so healthy, we can indulge in the many flavors! There is a variety of healthy and low-fat options on the menu at India Palace in Provo, Utah. Many people in India are vegetarian. This is a great place to eat out on ‘Meatless Mondays’. Since Indian cuisine does not include any beef or pork, or cuts from a cow. Cows are sacred in India. There are delicious lamb options. Lamb is on my superfoods list for my body’s biome. Lamb is also expensive even at Costco. I choose lamb en...

I met our neighborhood Literary Guild ladies at the iconic Brick Oven Pizza restaurant in Provo Utah the other day. Brick Oven is located right next to the Brigham Young University campus. It is a super popular place to eat, especially for young families as it is cost-effective and they have the option of the all-you-can-eat salad bar, pasta bar, and breadsticks. I ordered the salad bar and breadsticks. I didn’t order pizza this time. This is not the first time I have been to Brick Oven. When I bring my grandchildren out for Pizza, this is one of the restaurants I take them to. They get the pizza and the pasta bar.

  Day’s Market is my favorite neighborhood grocery store. It’s just a few blocks from my home, so I can walk there in less than 10 minutes. I remember, as a child, there were small neighborhood candy stores and grocery markets. Most of them are no longer around. Big grocery chain stores replaced the small stores. While the sales may be better at the larger chain grocers, the convenience of walking to a store and picking whatever I need for dinner is valuable. Day’s has all the essentials you need from fresh produce, an amazing bakery, your poultry and meats, all your dairy and non-dairy products, snacks, toilet paper, and all other essentials. Day’s Market also has great hours. They are open until 11 p.m., which makes dinner time much easier! Note: they are closed on Sundays. Since I li...
