Oh hello. Yes, it’s been too long. Multiple trips and deadlines have caused a backlog of tasty pics in my iPhoto and no time to put them any of those bad boys up. SO! I am back dear readers, and very excited to share all of the awesome things I’ve tried around town lately (and some new categories for posts!). I am also going to begin a weekly (or somewhat weekly) post of my most recent Elizapicks, from where to take your picky, annoying Vegan cousin to brunch, to dinner for the even pickier visiting rents who want to eat at 5PM and just want a perfect 35-day wet-aged steak for gosh sakes (Chicago Cut).
And speaking of perfection, in the world of fresh, gourmet French macarons, follow the tweets of Galit Greenfield to find her Sweet Spot macaron truck and load up on flavors like pistachio, hazelnut, strawberries and cream, chocolate espresso and most recently, Reese’s Pieces (you’ll swear you are eating the real thing). Each light-as air gem literally melts in your mouth with intense flavor only achieved in a pastry kitchen. Might be the perfect dessert after your thick turkey meal.
