Food lover from Michigan. Love spending time in Chicago trying new (or new-to-me) restaurants.
Kenji, that Searzall torch attachment is far and away the best Father's Day gift idea for my dad that I'd never have--thank you! The man just loves to break out his full-size blow torch in the kitchen.
Banana cream pie, please.
Macaroni, Smoked Chicken and Monterey Jack mac & cheese @ Zingerman's Roadhouse OR the mac & cheese @ Slows BBQ in Detroit.
Guacamole...or on a torta...really, I'll take 'em anyway I can get 'em!
Lucinda Scala Quinn. Just love her.
Jackpot. I love me some McDonald's breakfast. Indulged in an egg mcmuffin this morning.
Awesome :) Thank you for your suggestions!
Ohhhhhh Adam's Peanut Butter Cup Fudge Ripple Cheesecake... it's so amazing, I have a really difficult time trying anything else. BUT Tiramisu, Lemon Raspberry Cream and Key Lime are going on the list for the future!
Epic kudos to you guys.
Had dinner here last night - it was fantastic! The Adana Kebab was excellent.
Bell's Pizza in East Lansing? Sorry, but yuuuck. Silver Beach Pizza in St. Joseph is my favorite place to go. Unfortunately, the Slice review doesn't do it justice, IMO - with their nontraditional sauce and cheese, margherita pizza is not the way to go! But you can't go wrong almost any other way...the garlic greek is hugely popular and equally delicious.

Had three already and one more on the books. One with about 30 friends last Sunday afternoon, with family and friends Sunday night and a feast at work. Last will be on Thanksgiving, and just with my immediate family where we're vacationing.
Feels to me like Thanksgiving is already over!
It should be banned simply because it's disgusting.
Show me the cornbread-sausage-apple stuffing!
I've definitely found the margherita the least desirable of the specialty pizzas I've tried, so I'm not surprised with your disappointment. I don't think it should even be called that, given their cheese blend, but that's just me :)
But that crust... different, but so good.
Not exactly sure where, but made reservations at The Wave at the Contemporary Resort, Plaza Restaurant at Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Brown Derby at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Going to be a game-time decision based on when we arrive and whether or not they have a [good] Thanksgiving menu.
Boston Cream Pie
Savory: creamless creamy tomato soup (cook's illustrated). Sweet: butterscotch pudding.
So much baking in my house that the stand mixer is a very big deal, but the immersion blender is probably the best multi-tasker.
Pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin!
Not ready to part with cold-brewed iced coffee. I don't know what I'm going to do when it really cools off.
