ENDED Free Food Fridays: Enter To Win A ZeroWater Pitcher

a water purifying pitcher made by ZeroWater

Made a New Year’s resolution to drink more water? So did we! We absolutely love the ZeroWater pitcher because it uses a 5-stage filtration system to make sure we get the purest water possible. It even has a water-quality meter to show you just how clean the water is and let you know when it’s time to change the filter! A convenient bottle filler is also there, so when you go to the gym you can take the clean water with you! Even the filters are recyclable! It’s a great product all around, and if you’d love to win here are multiple ways to enter! Do them all for the best chance to win! Read the rest of this entry »

Your Weekly Libation

I’m a proud Chicagoan (okay, okay, former North Shore suburbanite who finds it easier to say Chicagoan), so naturally, this cocktail caught my eye. I’m not usually fan of brandy or bitters, so it’s quite the experiment, but I’ll be giving it a try sometime this weekend. At the very least it gives me an excuse to go to the liquor store.

Chicago Cocktail
2 oz. Brandy
1 dash Bitters
1/4 tsp. Triple Sec

Rub a slice of lemon around the rim of a glass and dip it in powdered sugar. Fill the glass half way with ice. Stir ingredients with ice and strain them into the glass.

Enjoy the drink, folks, and enjoy the weekend. I’ll see you on Monday.
