While I don’t eat fish, I do particularly enjoy olives, fresh veggies, feta cheese, home-grown herbs and all of the cooking techniques associated with this diet. When I say diet here, I don’t mean the diet you’ve been on since [...]
Grant Park and I ventured to Greek Town to try something new this weekend. No, it wasn’t a restaurant or some kind of performing arts event… In honor of my 2011 theme - Try It, we braved the cold Chicago winter for a double blind blogger date (say that three times fast). And boy, am I [...]
