The St. Charles County Department of Community Health and the Environment Food Service has released its inspection reports for October 2011.
St. Charles County Department of Community Health and the Environment regularly inspects food service establishments throughout St. Charles County, except for within limits of St. Peters. Businesses are inspected one to four times a year or after public complaints. "Lower-risk" places, like gas-stations that serve pre-packaged foods, are inspected less often than "higher-risk" places, like a restaurant, said Doug Bolnick, spokesman for the health department. The establishments begin with a score of 100 and points are deducted based on the severity of problems observed. According to the department's website, a low score does not mean the restaurant was unsafe on the day of the inspection. "A place could have just one deficiency that garners…

St. Louis is known for this local favorite. Can the Lake Saint Louis versions measure up?
I like traditions. I eat a lot. And that's what the holidays are all about. Each place has their own distinct traditions, thus I was thoroughly excited when I moved to St. Louis and discovered the gooey butter cake. I was instantly hooked, especially as the season grew colder and I discovered the joy of eating it with a giant, hot cup of coffee. Anything that contains as a rule at least one pound of powdered sugar goes hand in hand with snow, Christmas trees and holiday cheer if you ask me. I had to know more, meaning I had to eat more. After dabbling in a slew of yellow cake mix box creations that were scrumptious but too similar for my taste, I read into the subject to find out what exactly had caused this offbeat dessert to become …
