California

imageI’ve been gone for over a week, not a single recipe created, but delicious food and sights and experiences were consumed. A week (or so) in California was the perfect start to the “Spring” that won’t come in Chicago. This trip was the perfect mix of wine country indulgence and mountain and beach-side hiking.  A little time away from work, the kitchen, the car, and the cold was absolutely what I needed. So here’s a snapshot, to apologize for keeping you hungry.

This already feels like so long ago. But at least recipes are coming soon.
