Delicious Kohlrabi Fritters

Posted on June 17, 2019

Today I made some Delicious Kohlrabi Fritters. We will get to that in a few paragraphs. Right now let’s talk about passion.

I have not been here in awhile because I have been busy. Changing jobs,growing Tripping Vittles one little step at a time. I have been searching for years, and it has always been here. What am I searching for I have asked myself?

Where have I been

Love, Peace, Happiness, Excitement, Adventure. All of those things come to mind. Recently I have tried a bunch of different things

Politics. I love politics, but it is not my passion. I am a great follower in this area but not a leader. Leaving the leading to others. Call me for a protest or a march or to man a booth but don’t ask me to organize or run for office. I am well read and can hold my own in discussions, but it is just not my Passion!

CrossFit. Yeah, I want to be healthy, and I have friends who are amazing at this. My body at this age and with all my knee issues is not cut out to be a CrossFit pro.

Those are just two of many things I have done over the last year searching for me. The funny thing is me has been here all along. I have even talked about it. I started working on me years ago with this blog. It began as a hobby but this is my passion.

This is my passion

It is not just Tripping Vittles though it is food in general. It’s talking to people and showing them how to cook and how to use the spices I have to make delicious food. Its sharing tastes from all over the world. It is talking about cooking and growing and feeling what we use to nourish our bodies.

It is about Love, the love we have for one another the love we have for our planet. The love that can only be expressed thru breaking bread with your fellow man.

My passion is about all things food and food related Sharing recipes, eating amazing meals, saving the planet so we can keep eating and growing the magic that is what we eat.

The Recipe Delicious Kohlrabi Fritters

This week I bought some Kohlrabi at the farmers market where I sell Tripping Vittles spices. People who sold it to me are a family of super nice folks GlasgowFamilyFarm In a future post I will talk about how important shopping local and supporting local farmers is. Today lets just talk about Delicious Kohlrabi Fritters.


Delicious Kohlrabi Fritters

An easy Kohlrabi Fritter that is delicious.

  • Author: trippingvittles


For Fritter

  • 2 medium-sized Kohlrabi cleaned and quartered
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 Red Onion
  • 2 Tablespoons Tripping Vittles Tuscany Bread Dipping Spice
  • 1/4 cup grated Tillamook Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon Mayonaise
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil

For Sauce

1/4 Cup Mayonaise

!/4 Cup Sour Cream

1 Tablespoon Half and Half

1 tablespoon Tripping Vittles Tuscany Bread Dipping Spice.



In a Small Food Processor, grind up stale bread for bread crumbs.  Remove to a mixing bowl add to the processor the kohlrabi and the red onion grind or grate up depending on the texture you like. Remove and add to bread crumbs. Add all other ingredients except butter and olive oil mix well.  Set to side

Heat butter and olive oil in a Cast Iron Pan once hot add your fritters cooking each side to a golden brown.

For the Sauce mix, all ingredients together at least a half hour before the meal let them sit in the fridge until you are ready to serve the fritters.


Serve on a plate topped with sauce and a little garlic scapes or green onion for color. This recipe makes 2-4 Fritters depending on the size you want your fritter to be.  I made two as a meal but they would make an awesome side dish to a steak in place of potato.

Right now you can only get the spices in Westerville at the Saturday Farmers Market but trust me when I say more is coming. I am, but one person and I try as hard as I can to do a little every few days.

I Love Ice Cream!

Posted on September 24, 2019

I think it is clear now that I love Ice Cream! The good the bad( is there really bad ice cream?) all ice cream.

I have said over and over I am not a review site. but I keep getting asked my favorite this or that and where do we find good this and that? So I have decided I will write short little reviews of the stuff I love or not love. You will not find the brutal takedowns of places like the NYtimes does of restaurants.

At One Time I Did Write Reviews

Many years ago I used to write funny reviews for friends. It is how I started writing and it eventually morphed into Tripping Vittles.

The following was my rating scale.

  • 0-This sucks
  • 1-oh yeah it is good
  • 2-oh yeah baby that is really good
  • 3-oh man that was frikin great                        
  • 4-holy crap ya can’t beat that

I probably will not tell you about a place that sucks. or maybe I will but that is a line I will cross when I get to it. I know how hard people in this business work and I know sometimes even the very best places have shitty nights.

Grandpa Knew Best

I love Ice Cream. If you follow me on Instagram and you should, you will know I have traveled searching for ice cream. I will go far and wide. It is the perfect sweet treat dessert and allaround meal if you get the right combo.

“There is always room for ice cream it fits between the cracks”

Grandpa Sloat

Today I am sharing with you the Ice Cream you must get if you are in Port Clinton Ohio.

Best Ice Cream in Port Clinton Ohio
Andy’s Party Mart Port Clinton, Ohio

There is a little place called Andy’s Party Mart, In Port Clinton Ohio. If you are up on Lake Erie make this place a stop. It is a drive thru/deli/icecream shop. I cannot address the drive tru or deli but the ice cream is awesome!

Flavors and Rating

The flavor I got was Brown Butter Bourbon.

It’s a 3-Oh Man that was Frikin Great! Tripping Vittles has been told by a reliable source that the Strawberry Cheesecake and Caveman Chocolate are darn good too!

I Love Ice Cream

I love it, will always love it! Do I have a favorite flavor? Nope, not really. I love almost all brands. I even like to make my own Ice Cream. If you enjoy making your own ice cream the Ben & Jerrys book on Ice cream is the best I have ever used. Easy to make and fun!
