Milwaukee’s Timeless Deli

100 years ago, the Packers had yet to be founded. 100 years ago, the Brewers had yet to become a team. And 100 years ago, a butcher shop stood at the corner of 17th Street and North Avenue. Now, in 2017, it continues to stand, in a neighborhood that has drastically evolved in the meantime….

Birdies and Beers

This past weekend, I attended the Symetra Tour’s Potawatomi Hotel & Casino Classic at the Brown Deer Golf Course. It was a fantastic day, complete with beautiful weather, a burst of up-and-coming talent on the course and Sprecher’s Traveling Beer Garden (pop-up). My boyfriend and I stopped at the beer garden first, where I ordered…

Colectivo Unveils Bottled Cold Brew

Today is more of a Brews and News sort of day: Colectivo just announced it’s selling bottled cold brews at all of its cafes. It’s the latest collaboration with 3 Sheeps Brewing Company, which is based out of Sheboygan. If you’re already a Colectivo beer fan, the name may ring a bell. That’s because the…

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tacos

Sundays. They can satiate your appetite for a good brunch and they can be so incredibly relaxing. On the flip side, they can lull you right into a false sense of a long, lazy day. Sundays and I have developed a love-hate relationship over the years. Every week, like clockwork, I try to convince myself…

National Tequila Day

Have I mentioned how much I love BelAir Cantina before? I definitely have… and I’ve got a blog post to prove it. Today is no exception, thanks to a drink and taco special BelAir’s offering in honor of National Tequila Day! BelAir is serving $5 margaritas and tequila shots (Don Julio Blanco Tequila)! I’ll be…

Eggs, Glorious Eggs

I can tell you right now, this post probably will be renamed “Eggs, Glorious Eggs: Part One” at some point, because there are a┬ámillion different ways to have eggs at breakfast, lunch and dinner (and sure, dessert, too). Last week, for example, I made two delicious dishes: scrambled eggs with steak, spinach and cherry tomatoes,…

Summertime Festivals (Part One)

With summer officially in full swing, there is no shortage of festivals to attend in Southeastern Wisconsin. Take this weekend, for example: Friday through Sunday, Wisconsinites could choose between Greek Fest in West Allis, Strawberry Fest in Cedarburg or Brady Street’s Summer Soulstice. Or, in my case, two out of the three. The bf and…

Pictured Rocks

Picture this: a weekend getaway to one of the most beautiful shorelines among all the Great Lakes, complete with hiking, kayaking and a cruise along the shore. I spent this past weekend soaking up every possible second at the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Munising, Michigan. It was a perfect long weekend, but honestly, it…

Grilled Peach Caprese Salad

Throughout the winter and spring, I’ve been whipping up a quick and simple caprese salad for dinners and midnight snacks at work, tossing together spinach, tomatoes and mozzarella, with a homemade balsamic vinaigrette. I really don’t have any complaints about the salad – it was delicious, it had some healthy ingredients and I didn’t really…

Banana and Date Smoothie

One of the first items I carried over to my new apartment last week was my Magic Bullet Blender. I’ll admit, I’m not sure why I did that, since I use it a lot and hadn’t actually brought any food with me to the new place, but there it was, sitting on an empty counter,…
