New Years Eve Reservations - It's Time!

When I last posted about Christmas Dining reservations, I was also looking at New Year's reservations as well.  From that post to this, from a brief glance at, I am sorry to say that many places have already filled up.  Hence I implore you to make your New Year's rezzies as fast as you can!

The hubby and I, as I mentioned in my last post, went to Yoshi's for the 2 New Year's Eve's we spent  in Chicago.  It's a great restaurant in Boystown/Lakeview East, which has awesome food in general, a special menu for New Year's Eve, a band, and dancing.

Home Cooking Heroes: Spotlight Peter Bunin's Scallops over Rice

Welcome to the first installment of "Home Cooking Heroes" where we talk to every day people with a knack for cooking up an awesome snack or full fledged meal in their own home kitchens.

To start out the series, I've asked my bestie to prepare a meal he made for me and my hubby a couple years ago - a meal that blew us away and was so indelible, I still find myself craving it to this day. The recipe is featured after the interview.

Without further adieu, I'd like to introduce the amazingly awesome and otherwise inestimable, Peter Bunin.

Have you found your Holiday Eatery? How about New Year's?

Yes... it's that time of year again... the time for setting up the tree (if you haven't already!) and stretching lights across your front porch...

Time for decking the halls,
and holiday cheer,
time to clean house for in-laws,
and then it's almost New Year!
Is your Turkey all basted?
Your pie stuffing gathered?
Have you reveled in carols
Till your vocal cords tattered?
