From Living Social, to Urban Daddy to Groupon there are plenty of great sites to find deals on date night activities. One of the best things about living in the city is that there are always endless options for exploring something new.
Treasure Island Foods offers cooking classes that are hosted by some of the city's top chefs and they only cost $19 per person for a tasting of 3 courses from the menu and wine.
We enjoyed Jeffrey Mauro's presentation from Jam Restaurant in Logan Square. He taught us how to perfect eggs Benedict and the easiest way to make a smooth Spanish omelet. Who would have thought that their are different cooking terms for the ways in which you stir and fold an omelet? There is nothing like breakfast for dinner and although Jam is known for one of the best breakfast's in town. The head chef is a seasoned professional who offered advice on cooking a variety of dishes.
We cannot wait to go visit the restaurant after having an authentic one on one session with the chef. If you are a foodie in Chicago who hasn't been to a Treasure Island cooking class yet, you can easily sign up on their website:
Easter is the second most important candy-eating occasion of the year for Americans, behind Halloween. Americans buy more than 700 million Peeps every Easter season making these brightly colored, marshmallow chicks the most popular candy for the holiday. But what’s so great about Peeps anyway?
Peep candies have made their way into countless Easter baskets over the years since they were first invented by Just Born Candy Company back in 1953. The franchise has expanded so much that you can now find everything from Peeps chap stick to slippers. People have even found inspiration to create entire works of art made from the variety of candy colors and shapes: http://www.refinery29.com/2015/04/84947/peeps-candy-art#slide-2
Peeps have essentially no taste, there are 25 calories in one chick and are made up of sugar, corns syrup and gelatin. They are not much of a treat on their own, but, they do fit perfectly on top of cupcakes. I used a Martha Stewart’s Buttercream frosting recipe and classic cupcake recipe to create these tasty white cupcakes to share with friends.
