Confession time. I was ravenous as I pulled this dish out of the oven and immediately after taking these photos (which were taken in very poor lighting), like in the time it took bachelor nick to kiss a girl on national television in front of the 24 other girls he’s dating, I forked into it….

(This giveaway has closed) Oh it’s frigid, frosty. The polar vortex is upon us but for some reason, in December, it doesn’t seem so bad. At least not to me. I don’t mind the cold around Christmas when there are so many fun things to do in Chicago – zoo lights and Chriskindlemarket, ice skating,…
