Hi, I’m Rachel.
I love thinking, talking, making, reading, and generally daydreaming about food, so I thought I’d try writing about it! This blog will be my way to share musings on all things food: recipes, restaurant reviews, equipment, memories, tips, news, favorites, and other miscellaneous thoughts and adventures.
A little bit about me:
◊ I was born in Chicago and have returned home to live…so many of my posts will be local to the Windy City. I have also resided in Providence, Seattle, Boston, and London and had some amazing edible experiences in each!
◊ I grew up in a food-obsessed family and married a food-loving man.
◊ I believe anyone can be a foodie, and that what comes out of a street cart, a fine-dining establishment, and your own kitchen can be equally mind-blowing.
◊ I also believe that while food is one of the great joys of life, we often forget to prioritize it as we live in a fast-paced world. Sometimes, even if just for a moment, it feels really great to put food first.
