After several miserable attempts at publishing a gift guide of my own on this blog like last year, I surrendered to the gift giving gods and instead submitted my selections to the 2014 Chicago Food Bloggers Holiday Gift Guide. Believe me, […]

Friday Find | Garrett Chocolate Covered CaramelCrisp®

by Lizzy 11 April 2014 Friday Find

I do not like caramel corn. Caramel popcorn to be more precise. I never have, and I thought I never would. Even as a kid I only wanted CRACKER JACK® for the prize.

Friday Find | Graze Snack Box

by Lizzy 28 February 2014 Friday Find

Subscription boxes have been around for a bit, but it seemed to me that last year snack boxes popped up everywhere. Because it’s food, I was eager to try one of these services. However, I needed an invitation and couldn’t score one for the life of me. The universe must’ve heard my call because when […]

I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating. Christina Tosi is a freaking genius! If you don’t know who she is, allow me to make the introduction.

 This time of year, I cook more than usual, as I’m sure many home cooks do during the holidays. The biggest favor a friend of mine did was give me this Wüsthof Classic Santoku 5-inch Knife. See, I have small hands. In fact, they’re so small my friends and even my husband make fun of […]

Friday Find | OXO Fat Separator

I waxed poetic about potatoes earlier this week, but let me supplement by saying I love a good sauce. As one of my best friends noted, I like a little food with my sauce. You can probably guess I’m a big fan of gravy as it fuels my Thanksgiving love affair. I’ve made a lot […]
