I know it's been a lonnnnnnnng time, but I am back at it! I figured Thanksgiving would be the perfect time to jump back into my food blog since it's the ultimate Food Whore's holiday! So get ready for a heaping helping of Turkey Day-related posts as I prepare to cook my first-ever Thanksgiving Dinner. Yep, that's right: I have NEVER cooked Thanksgiving Dinner! Mama Food Whore always took care of it for the fam, and boy, did she do it up right! But now I live many many miles away from home, and I am cooking dinner for me and Mr. Food Whore.
I've got two other new features I'll be focusing on now. The first is all the amazing food here in Chicago, my new home. Part of the reason I've been so absent from this blog is that Chicago offers an overwhelming amount of delicious food, and we have been indulging quite a bit. The second new feature is that I'm going to be experimenting with new foods. Don't worry, I won't be using obscure ingredients and complicated recipes--instead I want to focus on cooking with ingredients that I haven't used before. I'm really looking forward to this. Being in a new region of the country, I've been exposed to new cultural foods (my neighborhood has a large Polish population), and different types of local foods.
Thanks for sticking around during my hiatus. And Happy (early) Thanksgiving to you all!
Bon Appetit! The Food Whore
