Garlic and panko crusted cod – nice and flaky with an awesome roasted garlic crunch. I sauteed 5 garlic cloves in about 3 tablespoons of Kerrygold butter, added some extra virgin olive oil and then mixed in panko breadcrumbs. Dredge the fish in egg and cover in panko mixture. Bake at 375 for 15-20 mins and it should be done!#ChicagoFoodAuthority #eattravelrock #chicagofoodgirl  #everythingerica #chicagofood  #chicagofoodie #chicagofoodbloggers #chicagofoodanddrink #foodiechats #chigram #bestfoodchicago  #chicagogram #foodporn #foodstagram #foodie #instagood #foodgasm #everythingerica #nomnomnom #chicagolife #spoonfeed #eeeeeats #sleefood #instadaily #GroundUpGourmet

Got myself a big boy toy (@CanonUSA 6D) I've been eyeing a DSLR for a long time and finally took the plunge and got one. Sure come a long way since my first point and shoot!

Pig face at Girl & the Goat (@stephandthegoat ). Basically a pork lovers paradise. All the pig face goodness is under the egg. Nom nom nom. Also, I'm crazy impressed with what the @Adobe Lightroom app can do with a pretty jacked up camera phone pic. I can probably of made it better but just don't know how to yet!#ChicagoFoodAuthority #eattravelrock #chicagofoodgirl  #everythingerica #chicagofood  #chicagofoodie #chicagofoodbloggers #chicagofoodanddrink #foodiechats #chigram #bestfoodchicago  #chicagogram #foodporn #foodstagram #foodie #instagood #foodgasm #nomnomnom #chicagolife #spoonfeed #eeeeeats #sleefood #instadaily #GroundUpGourmet #latergram # topChicagorestaurants

Thought I posted just the image of this a while ago. My first sous vide steak using the Anova (@anovaculinary). 136F for 2 hours (a little longer than I wanted because I was finishing another dish). Salt, pepper and a little garlic powder. Almost perfect!#ChicagoFoodAuthority #eattravelrock #chicagofoodgirl  #everythingerica #chicagofood  #chicagofoodie #chicagofoodbloggers #chicagofoodanddrink #foodiechats #chigram #bestfoodchicago  #chicagogram #foodporn #foodstagram #foodie #instagood #foodgasm #everythingerica #nomnomnom #chicagolife #spoonfeed #eeeeeats #sleefood #instadaily #GroundUpGourmet #Sousvide #sousvidecooking #anovasousvide #eattender

Finally made it to Big Star (@bigstarchicago ) after 2 years in Chicago. The pick up window and seating area was clutch since the waiting list for seating was 32 groups deep. Everything was on point and my favorite was probably the pork belly or beef tacos. I will certainly be back!Edit: the Al Pastor were amazing as well. Think they were all my favorite gahh. #ChicagoFoodAuthority #eattravelrock #chicagofoodgirl  #everythingerica #chicagofood  #chicagofoodie #chicagofoodbloggers #chicagofoodanddrink #foodiechats #chigram #bestfoodchicago  #chicagogram #foodporn #foodstagram #foodie #instagood #foodgasm #everythingerica #nomnomnom #chicagolife #spoonfeed #eeeeeats #sleefood #instadaily #GroundUpGourmet # latergram

Shrimp roll from Shaws Crab house via Uber Eats (@uber). It was pretty darn good but definitely lacking in shrimp to bread ratio. #ChicagoFoodAuthority #eattravelrock #chicagofoodgirl  #everythingerica #chicagofood  #chicagofoodie #chicagofoodbloggers #chicagofoodanddrink #foodiechats #chigram #bestfoodchicago  #chicagogram #foodporn #foodstagram #foodie #instagood #foodgasm #everythingerica #nomnomnom #chicagolife #spoonfeed #eeeeeats #sleefood #instadaily #GroundUpGourmet

Sous vide pork ribs cooked for 6 hours at 175 degrees. They were coated in and my pork dry rub (Chinese five spice really adds a great subtle flavor) and the slathered with some kicked up sweet baby rays on the grill to finish them off. These were fall of the bone tender yet still stayed together…really had a great texture!#ChicagoFoodAuthority #eattravelrock #chicagofoodgirl  #everythingerica #chicagofood  #chicagofoodie #chicagofoodbloggers #chicagofoodanddrink #foodiechats #chigram #bestfoodchicago  #chicagogram #foodporn #foodstagram #foodie #instagood #foodgasm #everythingerica #nomnomnom #chicagolife #spoonfeed #eeeeeats #sleefood #instadaily #GroundUpGourmet #eattender #sousvide

Chicken wings for dinnah. For the sauce I took franks hot buffalo and added honey, ketchup and apple cider vinegar. Wings are coated with some seasoned flour, sprayed with olive oil and baked at 450 for around 40 minutes.#ChicagoFoodAuthority #eattravelrock #chicagofoodgirl  #everythingerica #chicagofood  #chicagofoodie #chicagofoodbloggers #chicagofoodanddrink #foodiechats #chigram #bestfoodchicago  #chicagogram #foodporn #foodstagram #foodie #instagood #foodgasm #everythingerica #nomnomnom #chicagolife #spoonfeed #eeeeeats #sleefood #instadaily #GroundUpGourmet

Had to make my way to Highland Park for a doc appointment and then proceeded to wait a longgg time but @jentraines suggestion to go to @MichaelsRedHots made it all worth it. Probably one of my favorite Chicago dogs that I've had so far! And yes, that's ketchup on one of the dogs!#ChicagoFoodAuthority #eattravelrock #chicagofoodgirl  #everythingerica #chicagofood  #chicagofoodie #chicagofoodbloggers #chicagofoodanddrink #foodiechats #chigram #bestfoodchicago  #chicagogram #foodporn #foodstagram #foodie #instagood #foodgasm #everythingerica #nomnomnom #chicagolife #spoonfeed #eeeeeats #sleefood #instadaily #GroundUpGourmet
