Anthony Bourdain once said you haven't been to Chicago if you haven't been to Manny's. I've been to Chicago. It tasted like Pastrami on rye with a potato pancake and slid across the metal countertop like a boss. |

Having a sister in law school does have its perks... starting with the view from this room. Who's excited to study!? Ok, maybe excited is too strong of an emotion. Ok, ok, excited is definitely too strong of a word choice. Who can tolerate studying on a weekend? 😭😭 |

Bohemian Neuroscience 101:

1. When dopamine is released in your brain, it makes you feel good. 
2. When you eat delicious foods, dopamine floods your brain. 
3. Oxytocin is called the "love hormone" because it's released during intimate moments such as cuddling and pregnancy.
4. Meeting up with a friend from out of town releases oxytocin. 
5. Meeting up with an old friend over a delicious brunch releases oxytocin and dopamine. 
6. Dopamine in high doses can cause impulsivity.
7. Friends who like to share plates can lead to impulsively ordering everything on the menu. 
8. High releases of dopamine and oxytocin on a consistent basis lead to addiction. 
9. Therefore, brunch with good friends has a high addiction potential. 
10. I'm changing my dissertation topic immediately. |

Blueberry pancakes, biscuits with spicy sausage gravy, and the piece de resistance: "Churrisimo tacos" stuffed with scrambled eggs, chorizo sausage, cheddar cheese, tomatoes, green onions, and cilantro, served with a fruit medley and Monterrey home fries topped with more cheese, bacon, and jalapenos

Wishing everyone a hauntingly good Halloween... almost as good as this bewitchingly delightful cranberry margarita from the All Hallow’s Eve @yelpchicago event at Joy District. I stand by my 13 year old self’s assessment: if there’s no cranberries, it’s not a holiday.

Anyone recognize which mask this is from commedia dell’arte? (Joe will happily give you a very long, detailed history in case you’re curious 😂)

I'd like to introduce everyone to one of the greatest desserts that ever happened to me (yes, happened to me, because it was an experience): chocoflan from Kristoffer's Bakery in Pilsen (the mosaic is also in Pilsen off 18th Street). 🍮 🍮 
I think the invention of chocoflan may have happened like this: 🍮 
Inventor of Delicious Things: What if there was a way to take flan to the next level? 🍮 🍮 
Average Food Lover AKA Human: What's wrong with regular flan, it's creamy, custardy, and has awesome sauce? 🍮 🍮 
Inventor of Delicious Things: There's nothing wrong with regular flan. It's delicious and perfect, just like chocolate cake. OMG, I'm going to pour chocolate cake batter all over flan and see what happens. 🍮 🍮 
Average Food Lover AKA Human: I'm eating everything you touch, you Dietary Midas. 🍮 🍮 🍮 
That might sound a tad dramatic. Unless you've been to Kristoffer's. Then you know I toned it down a notch before posting. 🍮 🍮 🍮 🍮 🍮

Waiting in the line down Decatur Street was totally worth every crispy, moist, warm, powder sugar laden beignet bite. Such magic. Such joy. And three of these bad boys cost $2.73. How the citizens of New Orleans don't all have diabetes is a mystery to me. |

Well, I can check "having brunch on a balcony in the French Quarter" off my Pinterest list of touristy things white women love to do in New Orleans. |

Eggs Bayou Lafourche: blackened shrimp, sauteed spinach, capers, mushroom and tomato, poached egg, and remoulade hollandaise sauce over sourdough toast. |

Apparently you can pay $20 to see the view from the 50th floor or you can go to the 52nd floor and enjoy the view for the price of one Ruby Manhattan. The jazz music is free. |

The “short stack” complete with four clams, six oysters (it’s oyster season, people!), baked mussels, shrimp cocktail, and crab meat salad. Boston, you’re fantastic. 🦀 🦀 🦀 
An ocean of thanks for the recommendation to @psydoc63 |

Had to stop in and see the Boston Public Library again on this trip. There’s something about this place that makes me want to find a good book and stay awhile. It might have something to do with finding Voltaire’s Candide in beautiful hardcover at their book sale ... |

We had an awesome time last night at Culinary Care's 5th Anniversary Cook-Off Awards! Not only were the speakers amazing and so inspiring (including the founder, Courtney) but the dishes from restaurants including LondonHouse, Boleo, Beatnik, and Eden were creative, beautifully plated, and delicious. 🍴 🍴 🍴 
Pictured is Eden chef Devon Quinn's dish: curried rice fritters with burnt eggplant garlic puree. Not only were the flavors spicy and dynamic, but the texture on this plate was out of this world! Not only was the fritter cooked perfectly, but the wild rice was prepared in such a way that it was crisp and crunchy with each bite. Truly a spectacular dish for a spectacular event! 🍴 🍴 🍴

The Last Supper... that I had on vacation. In case you’re wondering, the ricotta cheesecake with candied ginger and the Italian cream cake with raspberry was everything you’d want a dessert to be. |
