A round-up of tasty morsels from Valley food blogs.
Jess Harter of Mouth by Southwest is giving less trendy, long running restaurants some love in his new "East Valley Originals" series, this time featuring The Handlebar Pub & Grill, 650 W. Apache Trail, Apache Junction. You'll be impressed to read about the craft beer, local pesticide-free produce and Arizona grass-fed beef served here. Harter calls it an "oasis." Find out how far this recently renovated bar has come in the recent months in the first originals blog post.

Chef Gwen's famous smoothies were supposed to end at number 200. She's already tweeted a 201st (Mountain Rose Apple + Maple + Allspice) but she did a nice write up on her 200th smoothie that was supposed to be epic -- or so she'd imagined. While it looked like a winner incorporating figs, Pernod and orange - she only gave it an 8 out of 10. Consequently, the smoothie train continues to whir on. That's a-okay with us.
