Homemade Gingerbread Syrup for Your Coffee Needs

Homemade Gingerbread Syrup for Your Coffee Needs

If you’re anything like me, this is about the time of year where you want to add a little seasonal cheer to every thing you drink as the cold settles in, the last few leaves fall to the ground, and you struggle to stay awake […]

Pumpkin Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Pumpkin Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Broccoli cheddar soup is, in my book, an ultimate comfort food. The epitome of simplicity, it speaks of autumn afternoons and bookshop outings with my grandmother. After school, we’d walk around our neighborhood in Chicago, select new books at Barnes & Noble, and then stop to […]
