The Finest Brunch Spots – Suburbs of Chicago

Good morning.

Fun fact: I used to hate breakfast! Eating so early in the morning made me feel nauseous all day. But brunch, I absolutely love. The timing is right and I can have the best of both worlds: breakfast or lunch or both! I truly enjoy the overall experience.

In the past few weeks I explored some fun new brunch spots in the suburbs of Chicago and had to share them with all of you. From refreshing cocktails to decadent food and eye catching decor, I have it all for you.

Must try brunch spots.

Garlic & Parmesan Pretzels

Let’s talk summer snacking!

Or in my case, all day, every day snacking.

One thing we always have in the pantry are pretzels. We love to eat them by themselves or dipped into hazelnut spread. But I also use them in recipes as well. For example, you can crush them and use it to coat chicken strips and create that perfect crust or use it in sweet desserts for that sweet and salty crunch. Either way pretzels are a healthier alternative to other snacking options. Especially Quinn Pretzels. REAL ingredients, whole grains, and naturally gluten-free.

Introduction to PlusCBD Oil / Hemp-derived Cannabidiol

I don’t know about you but if you are anything like me, being a mom sometimes feels like a circus act. But not just any circus act – the one where the poor mama bear is trying to balance on one foot, while juggling balls, smiling and listening to the trainer all at the same time. Between morning routines, school, projects, cooking, cleaning, party planning and whatnot – I was the overwhelmed and exhausted circus bear. My internal balance was a wreck and I needed this summer break more than the kids.

Thanks to a wonderful collaboration with MomsMeet, I was introduced to Hemp-derived CBD oil and my homeostasis, once again, feels regulated. It is perfect for busy moms like myself. Here is my story!
