Prost! {Chicago}

Eating out with friends is one of my favorite past times. Seriously, if it was a sport I’d be MVP. I also feel like there’s just something about sharing a laugh and a meal that brings people together. One of my dear friends once said that the table is where friendships are born. I love…

Germany pt. 2: Prost!

German food was overwhelmingly…just what I expected: bratwurst, beer, pretzels and schnitzel. But no complaints here, because it was all delicious. While we didn’t have time for a second Foodie Tour, we did have an extensive sampling of German cuisine while on our guided tour. Rather than reliving every bite {trust me, there were far…

London pt. 3: The Foodie Tour

On our last day in London we decided to design our own tour. We wanted something that would blend the best of both worlds: seeing the sites and eating. Thus, the Foodie Tour was born.

Little Goat Diner is best described as comfort food with a gourmet twist. Both Little Goat and her big sister Girl & the Goat are the vision of executive chef…

Honey Butter Fried Chicken

One of my favorite topics of conversation is the best places to eat in Chicago. My friends know I have a running checklist in my phone. I fondly refer to it as my dining wish list. I decided to start the Foodie Friday series to share some of my favorite culinary experiences, in Chicago and beyond….
