Winter in Maine sometimes makes me question why cold weather is acceptable. Like my hometown of Chicago, Maine is freezing during the winter.

We know that it goes without saying that I adore brunch. If I could have it as every meal of my day (complete with a mimosa) I probably would. But since I can’t, this is the next best thing. Tired of going to all the same spots for brunch? When old favorites get tired, it’s […]
