Like everyone else, I love following along on my friend's adventures and seeing all the good foods that they are eating! Andrew Zimmern (@chefaz) is always traveling somewhere amazing and finding really interesting local places while there. I feel like he's always posting something that's making me hungry. Sometimes I feel like I talk with Graham Elliot (@grahamelliot) and Jamie Bissonnette (@jamiebiss) more through our Instagrams or Twitter than through text. Graham always has photos of his adventures and lots of photos of his kids (which I can relate to). Jamie always has cool new dishes he's working on. I also follow Chicago Tribune (@chicagotribune) to learn about everything that's going on around town. It's one of my favorite sources of news since my grandpa worked there.

MEET | STEPHANIE IZARD
Featured 6.12-6.18.17 | In a world oddly dominated by men, there’s nothing more inspirational than a kick-ass female chef. Take Stephanie Izard for example: James Beard Award Winner, Winner of Food & Wine’s Best New Chef Award, Chef & Owner of three brilliant restaurants (Girl & The Goat, Little Goat and Duck Duck Goat), Cookbook Author (Girl in the Kitchen), Iron Chef winner (yes, she beat Masaharu Morimoto AND Michael Symon), former competitive swimmer and, as it turns out, very fast skipper. Kind of makes you feel like you haven’t accomplished a whole lot, right? All this to say, Stephanie is wildly talented and incredibly well-respected, not to mention kind, hilarious and really, really fun to be around. Oh, and in case you missed it, she can cook like a true boss. Truth is, I kind of want to be her, don’t you?
Welcome to Stephanie's week.
