Creamy Baked Potato Soup

I’ve enjoyed a great handful of soups in my day, but Panera’s baked potato soup has been one of the most memorable. It’s always made me a happier person and it’s one of the first soups I enjoyed alongside bread.  I used to love going to Panera and ordering the soup in a big bread […]

Chicken Pot Pie Topped with Cheddar Thyme Biscuits

This Chicagoland second wind of summer weather is messing with my fall food obsession, friends, and I’m not having it.

Bacon & Date Grilled Cheese

One of the best apps on this planet has to be bacon-wrapped dates. Anyone else feel the same? It doesn’t get better than a salty slice of bacon and the sweet chewy bite of a pitted date. I could easily pop a dozen in a sitting because they are SO addicting. For some reason, the […]
