This month’s bite comes from Haagen-Dazs ‘s new Artisan Collection that features various chefs, chocolatiers and people who create mouthwatering food. The Spiced Pecan Turtle co created with Chocolatier, Christopher Elbow, featuring his spiced pecan turtles, is a cool yet delightfully warm mouthful of chocolate ice cream, caramel swirls, and chocolate covered spiced pecans! You’ll wish for it never to end. Get it now while you can find it!
One could conjecture a while regarding the merits of a good breakfast. While traveling I delight in finding the best food around the country. This month’s feature is Southport Grocery & Café located at 3552 N Southport Avenue in Chicago, Illinois. The staff was very courteous, unpretentious and it was a relaxed and semi posh atmosphere! The restaurant is located on Chicago’s North side and boasts not only an eaterie, but also a grocery store that stocks wonderfully unique food items that are sure to pique your interest. The bread pudding pancakes, along with the biscuits, eggs and bacon were breakfast heaven. Uniquely, the Lavender Vanilla tea was an unexpected pleasure. Southport Grocery & Café rates five forks from me.
