Eek, December already. Another month has passed in what feels like record timing. But the good news is, it’s time for Top Three Tuesday!

Grayscale – Brewery and more coming to North OTR

Easy Swiss Chard and Cheddar Frittata

Hi internet friends! I’ve been suuuuper busy studying up for the certified beer server exam (and hopefully certified cicerone soon after, ambitious, I know). BUT! In between study sessions I found time to make you this delicious and extremely easy frittata.
