Recently The Palmer House Hilton, one of Chicago’s most famous and historic hotels invited me to meet their Chefs, tour their rooftop garden, and to taste some of their new menu items. I was treated to a memorable afternoon of eating and exploring the garden and I am excited to tell you all about it.

As summer comes to a close, it seems like everyone has been fitting in as many events and activities as possible. For me, wedding season is in full force. I was in Maine two weeks ago for a wedding, and today I am heading to Washington DC for another. August kept me busy. Beyond busy. […]

Celebrating Cabernet Day with St. Supéry and Gibsons

IMG_8626

Happy Cabernet Day everyone! I started the celebration early. Last week I was invited to dine at Chicago’s most legendary steakhouse, Gibsons, with Wine Channel TV and St. Supéry. If there are two things that I am good at, they are drinking wine and eating steak. Going to events like this is my favorite part […]

Bacon Wrapped Scallops

IMG_8512

When we go to Maine my parents spoil my husband by preparing insane amounts of seafood. Fresh seafood is more expensive in Chicago than it is in Maine, and since I don’t particularly like seafood, I don’t cook it. The rest of my family loves it, and one of their favorites is bacon wrapped scallops. […]

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 8.24.13 PM

Summertime in Maine has a magical quality. Its weather is warm, not hot, and days are spent in the sun. The season is defined by its sounds and scents – the roar of waves crashing in the ocean, the seaweed baking on the rocky coast, the Clam Shack frying clams down the street, and the […]

Avocado Toast is one of those delightfully simple yet satisfying foods. It is also one of those foods that bloggers LOVE. You see it on blogs all the time; at its most simple it is a slice of toasted bread, drizzled with olive oil, topped with half of a mashed avocado and dusted with salt […]

This post is sponsored by Groupon, as always the opinions expressed are my own. The best part of moving, is finally feeling settled in and getting to shop for necessities for your new home. One of many reasons for my recent move was that I desperately needed a bigger kitchen. I was living without cooking […]

The Purple Pig, Chicago

IMG_8411

The Purple Pig is a restaurant right on Michigan Avenue that serves tapas style Spanish and Mediterranean food. The restaurant had been on my Chicago restaurant bucket list for years, and I finally made it there when my sister was in town for 24 hours. It is always a bit risky to take an out […]

We moved to Old Town two months ago, and one of our favorite things to do on weekends is to explore neighborhood brunch spots. Recently we went to Old Town Social, a large bar/restaurant with a hint of rustic Southern Charm and an eclectic menu. The restaurant is right on North Avenue, and just a […]

A Maine Adventure: Cabbage Island Clambakes

IMG_8574

I spent the weekend in Maine with my family. We went up to Boothbay Harbor for our friends’ wedding, and the day after the wedding my Mom arranged for everyone to go on an adventure to Cabbage Island for a traditional Maine clambake. We kept joking that we were showing my husband “the real Maine”, […]
