The Early Bird Special

Hey Midwest! Catch me  on WTTW’s Chicago Tonight Thursday, January 28th along with Chicago Gluttons and Dana of Real Food Rehab as we discuss eating and blogging in The Big Onion. If you don’t get WTTW in your ‘hood it looks like they post most episodes on their site after they air.

You can also check out the WTTW site on 1/28 for the recipes to make The Early Bird Special, as seen above. It’s French toast donuts topped with a veggie bacon nest and pure maple syrup. An orange juice granita and chocolate-covered espresso beans. It’s my ode to my grandparents in Florida, who I will be visiting shortly before the show airs.

I’m closing up The Shop while I’m in Florida, and opening up again after I’ve moved into my fancy new condo. If you’re subject to Bake and Destroy withdrawals you can follow me on Twitter and check out my new project, Brutal Snack. Word.
