Undoubtedly on the list of top summer rooftops, stepping out onto Cindy’s terrace and overlooking the endless turquoise lake Michigan, you there is not better panoramic view of the city. Perfectly placed in the Chicago Athletic Club Hotel, Cindy’s airy “beach house” feel flawlessly contrasts the dark smoky feel of the historic men’s club.
It’s quickly coming to the end of asparagus season! So let’s eat them up while we can! Nothing is better than pizza and breakfast, so to combine the two might just be the most brilliant food idea ever thought of. In this pizza I chose to showcase the asparagus because, let’s be honest, we need to savor it for the short amount of time we do have it! Read more
Tacos might just be one of my favorite foods to cook and prepare. I know what you’re thinking… she went all the way to culinary school in Ireland to master the art of tacos? Well no. I can actually say I did not prepare one taco while I was there!

I am one to crave a big juicy burger from time to time, but really who isn’t! Below is a recipe that allows you to enjoy those same delicious flavors without the regret! The salmon and quinoa also provide a fantastic boost of protein and vitamins for a healthy heart.
Turkey burgers and black bean burgers are always some of my favorite choices when I go out to eat, but there is always a risk of them being too dry! This Salmon Quinoa Burger definitely does not fall into the same category. The fresh ingredients create a beautifully moist patty, that is heightened by the amazing vegetable toppings!
Give it a try!

My first time walking into Pinewood Social I thought I had found the greatest hidden gem of all time tucked right off the beaten path of downtown Nashville. Little did I realize that all the Nashville locals knew of the spot! I should have known; this place was way to epic to be a secret!
Owned by brothers Benjamin and Max Goldberg, Pinewood Social was created to offer Nashville a go-to social gathering place. Pinewood Social accommodates their guest’s daily routines by brewing up one of the best cups of coffees to start the day, a comfortable place to meet for a casual lunch with a co-worker, and Pinewood Social even converts to be a happy hour spot to sip on a delicious cocktail after a long work week.
Pinewood Social has a little something for everyone. Not necessarily catered to specifically locals or tourists, this spot is merely a place to meet friends and play! Yes, literally play! Pinewood Social has six reclaimed wood lanes from an old Bowl O’ Rama in Indiana. (It might just be the cutest thing you’ve ever seen.) When the weather is nice, the outdoor patio also offers bocce ball and features two dipping pools for a much needed cool down in the Nashville heat. Read more
