I’m baaaaaaaaaaaack. (Well, for now.)

I sat across the table from my best friend, about to devour inarguably the best deep dish pizza in Chicago (Pequods, FIGHT ME IF YOU DISAGREE) when she looked up at me and asked me if my food blog was dead. I winced a little, thinking back to the glory days, when I cooked then publicly documented my [...]

self proclaimed sauce boss.

As a manager of mine once said [at a work meeting that included scenes from Braveheart and pizza], "You're either on the bus, or you're off the bus." such deep. much philosophical. My point? 'Tis finally time to hop back on the hypothetical blogging bus. It's BBQ season. The most patriotic time of the year. Filled with [...]

I falafel about not doing this earlier.

I falafel about not doing this earlier.

Well I already failed the New Years resolution that was updating this beast twice a month. My excuses this month include: February is short, February sucks, I went on vacation, I was busy as fudge, and February sucks. Meh, I deem those 'explanations' all valid and forgivable. When I moved to Chicago a year ago, [...]

Man, I feel like a woman.

This winter has sucked. Don't get me wrong, snow is beautiful. I like layers of clothing. I like hot soups and beverages. However, it's been so cold, I don't think I've had proper circulation to my toes in the last 48 hours and for that, I am grumpy. My standard catalyst for grumpiness-alleviation is food [...]

Wrap it up

I have to be honest, I haven't been home enough lately to bother doing any legitimate meal prep (yes, I know, excuses are like armpits and they stink). For this post, we are going to take a little trip in my hypothetical time machine to a nicer, warmer, more kitchen-filled time. Speaking of le kitchen, [...]

I’m the modern day Julia Child with less experience, skill, and couth, but with more beers, sass, and F bombs.

I know, I know, I'm the absolute worst at updating this little project of mine. Good news though! I've still been cooking... just not documenting. So yeah, that's good news, right? I've unofficially self-proclaimed this month as "Dine In December" meaning I am not going out to eat, buying fast food or anything along the [...]

I’m probably single because I’ll never love a man as much as I love food.

It's true, I don't think I have the capacity to worry about a man as much as I worry about when breakfast, lunch and dinner will be consumed. Most call it fat, I call it primal. I'm pretty inconsistent. With everything. A procrastinator to (nearly) a fault; a fine example of everything you shouldn't do [...]

**WARNING: I’M NOT A “FOODIE”; I JUST LIKE TO EAT.**

My first few posts are going to be me catching up with this time consuming idea I had (or may have been influenced by someone else's idea, HEY AMELIA!!!!) to make some sort of food blog, or whatever it is I'm making. In all honesty, I'm a hot mess 97% of the time. This could end [...]
