We like to call this our pretentious couple shot.
My name is Mike, and that’s my usual expression. Some call me stoic. Some call me an emotionless robot.
That’s Katie, apparently lit by the heavens. Starting the foodblog was partly her idea, even if you never see her post here (which she claims she’ll do, although I don’t believe her). But, even if a post doesn’t list her as an author, more often than not her opinion is still part of my posts. We are ultimately a team. Also, she’s obviously the more photogenic one in this relationship.
We currently live in the far (meaning nowhere near) Chicago suburbs of Joliet and Romeoville, but we hope to be moving to Chicago shortly. I’d still like to move to the west coast (I’m looking at you San Francisco!) for a few years. We’ve learned that good food and good people are some of the most important things in life. And that’s why we host a themed cannibal party every other Friday.
I’m hoping to get into baking and pastry, eventually (hopefully) opening up a small place of my own.
In my down time, when we’re not eating (or sleeping), I also make the occasional plush zombie toy, available at Zombie Baby. I doubt I’ll get rich making them, but I enjoy coming up with the goofy little bastards.
I also write a personal blog over here.
We’ve been dating and enjoying food for over 3 years now. Our first meeting is a long story involving a parking lot, the Roman Coliseum and a few drinks in our systems. It’s a romantic, serendipitous story, and is far too long to post here. If you’re really that interested, drop me a letter, and maybe I’ll share it with you.
The point of this blog? Document all the places we’ve eaten, all the foods we’ve made, and all the ridiculous junk food I shove into my system. It’ll be good times, I
