Parsnip Sticks

by Lizzy 12 March 2014 Food

Generally, once a month I get an urgent and insistent hankering for some particular food that is, of course, nowhere to be found in my kitchen. Sometimes it’s something odd I rarely eat, and it’s as though the craving […]

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.

Not only are his restaurants some of my favorites in Chicago and O’Hare International Airport, he has a wonderful PBS show and critically acclaimed cookbooks in case you’re not convinced. Now he’s created a perfectly smoky pumpkin salsa. I’m officially head over heels […]

Truffle Popcorn

by Lizzy 2 October 2013 Food

I don’t believe in food rules. Correction – I don’t believe in food rules for me. I’ve found the moment I place restrictions on what I can or cannot eat, my mind plays a cruel trick on my body by insanely craving whatever it is I’m trying to deny myself as if a zombie apocalypse is imminent. […]

by Lizzy 16 August 2013 Friday Find

Bacon, bacon, bacon! That’s basically my motto. Everything is simply better with bacon. I’ve thought so since I was school-age, and I still do.

Friday Find | Eclipse Chocolat

by Lizzy 9 August 2013 Food

  I have the best friends in the world! No hyperbole here. Seriously, I’ve been blessed with marvelous best friends who continually surprise me. Not only do they support me through thick and thin (this has been tested repeatedly), but they actually think of me when they see interesting food products and buy them for […]
