A New Breakfast: Coffee & Oatmeal

Although I have a newfound love of black coffee, I still dream about all types of coffee beverages. Tiramisu is moving to the top of my favorite desserts list, blended coffee drinks may be replacing regular ice cream options, and I will order any honey & cayenne pepper latte over a regular one any day....

A new year reset

We're sitting fresh into a new year, a time when everyone is discussing resolutions, #newyearnewyou, and are flushed with motivation. Personally, I was dragging my bloated, tipsy ass all the way through the last month of the year, feeling the impending doom of the new year. I was, gulp, looking forward to an excuse to...

Best of 2017

I'd like to believe that every town has a great sandwich shop, but it's the ones that... Continue Reading →

I've only just dipped my toe in the laugh pool of this YouTube show, but every moment of the cumulative fifteen minutes I've watched it have elevated my life. The Katering Show featuring two Australian women- a foodie and a food intolerant- maneuver the world of food one hilarious menu at a time. The Booze... Continue Reading →

Belly warming stops in Chicago

(Warning: this article contains A LOT of bitching about cold weather, but balances with food spots to remedy that.) My last trip to Chicago was so effing cold, I could barely huddle with strangers under the blue line heat lamps close enough. It was the kind of cold that makes you cry and freezes your...
