I had a great time #baking these strawberry & lemon bars with my friend Marina. Moist and deliciously refreshing, these perfect summer treats can be enjoyed on a day out in nature, with a glass of ice cold lemonade. Strawberries + lemons = a match made in culinary Heaven! :)

It's hard for me to single out one thing that stood out for me at the latest #CulinaryFightClub event, held in #Chicago earlier this week. I loved the food, admired the chefs, and fully immersed myself in the cause behind the competition.
I will look forward to the Culinary Fight Club every month from now on because it’s an amazing concept well worth supporting. Like I said in my first review, it’s a nail-biting show which brings out the best of both worlds, so to speak: it celebrates individual culinary talent and also fights hard for a greater charitable purpose.
Check out my full review of the latest Culinary Fight Club Challenge: the #Steak! :-)

Today is #nationalhotdogday and I drove all the way to #GeneandJudes for this double dog with fries, mustard, relish and sport peppers. Fresh honest food, hot and delicious. Can't get any better than that when it comes to hot dogs - or so I think, anyway. :) What is your favorite #hotdog joint? #hotdogs #chicagofood #chicagofoodie #chicagofoodies #chicagofoodscene #eeeeeats #foodporn #foodgasm #foodpics #chicago #chicagohotdog #nomnom #foodie #chicagolovespanini #foodforfoodies #foodphotography

Here's my full account of the delightful morning we spent picking sour cherries at Valley Orchard. When life gives you sour cherries, you make clafoutis, sponge cake and sour cherry preserve :-)

Let's start the day off right, shall we? Today is #nationalicecreamday - the perfect Sunday for a sundae! -:) I always go with classic flavors, such as vanilla and chocolate. I then add various toppings: tart cherry preserve (yum!), toasted almonds, fresh fruit etc. Use them all together for a truly decadent treat! What's your favorite ice cream flavor?

What better way to celebrate #bastilleday than with a classic French #dessert? I followed Julia Child's recipe and used tart cherries to make this light and whimsical #clafoutis, with perfect touches of summer sweetness. Delicious!
Also, here's my French-inspired savory #lunch choice. Stuffed croissant, anyone? :-)

"Mirror mirror on the wall/Where's the tastiest meatball of all?" I had a lovely time at +Trattoria Gianni experiencing traditional interpretations of beloved Italian dishes, meeting fellow bloggers and getting a fresh take on the vibrant #Chicago food scene. Here's the full write up of my experience:
