What’s Cookin’ Wednesday #110

Hi guys!

So, last week I popped in and asked for Madison, WI area recommendations of fun things to do! This week I’m asking for Chicago things to do! The husband and I are going this weekend and I have big plans to eat allllll the things. Any bakeries downtown that I can not miss? Any fun stuff that I must do? Hit me with your best recommendations!

In exchange, I’ll share some of my favorite recipes from last week. Ha! :)
