First thing’s first, lemme just say that this might be my only pumpkin recipe of this fall season. For some of you, that is great news. For you fall enthusiasts, I apologize that I am not more into the pumpkin spice craze. So, go get your pumpkin spice fill elsewhere! Just kidding, come back! I need you. I can’t guarantee that it will be the last. I do have another can of pumpkin puree in my pantry just in case. Everybody loves a good bandwagon, right? [Read more…]
You guys hear that? That whirring noise? It is a familiar noise for this time of year. It signals a change in the seasons. Yep, that lulling humming whir is coming from my seasonal BFF, my humidifier. Ah, now with that going on full steam, I can smell the crisp fall air approaching and smell the pumpkin spiced-everything floating in the air. [Read more…]
Are you a fan of take-out? Are you such a big fan of take-out that you think you might be the only person on your block that has take-out deliveries at least two days a week? Speak up people!

I will probably live to regret this statement once I am trapped indoors with ten inches of snow on the ground, a newborn, a two year old, and a dog staring at me wondering what we are going to do next. Until then, I shall rant on. [Read more…]
Women be crazy! That’s what I would say if I were going to approach this blog post like a stand-up comedian, be it a not so good stand-up comedian. But yeah, women be crazy! And when I say women, I am clearly speaking of myself here.
Why am I so crazy? Well, it all went down over the weekend. I had been looking forward to this little thing called the heirloom tomato festival happening at the Chicago Botanic Gardens. I added it to our Google calendar (much to Mike’s chagrin). I had been seeing a lot of pictures of these beautiful, ripe, and multicolored tomatoes all over my social media feed and I was getting sooo amped up! Yes, I know that in itself sounds crazy already but lay off me I am a food blogger/lover/hungry pregnant lady. [Read more…]
