The Bank Restaurant

Posted in Food tagged , , , , , , at 4:10 am by Foodie With An Agenda

The thanksgiving menu at The Bank Restaurant in Wheaton was absolutely amazing. The menu consisted of the most moist, tasty turkey that I have ever eaten, ham, incredibly tasty and moist stuffing,mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, an incredible take on the green bean casserole, and a very delicious pumpkin pie.

Not only was the food amazing but they have an incredible wine list and a long list of craft beers. The building was absolutely beautiful which gives great atmosphere to the meal as well as being quiet enough to have actual conversations with those around you. Prices are right on for the amount of food as well as the amazing tasting food. Everyone was very happy with their meal and we will all be returning during a non-holiday time. More reviews on this restaurant as well as reviews on the Chicago Wine and Food Festival, White Chocolate Grille, and many more.

Shaw’s Crab House

Posted in Food tagged , , , , , , , , at 1:48 am by Foodie With An Agenda

Went on a little adventure recently to Shaw’s Crab House in Schaumburg because I was craving oysters and they are one of the only oyster bars in my area.

The oysters for the most part were good but there were a few that were rather gritty. Major disappointment, no one enjoys a gritty oyster. Other than that my lobster tail was done to perfection.

We did order the chocolate cake that was sadly nothing to write home about. I am a huge fan of chocolate but this cake was sadly nothing special.

Check back soon for reviews on White Chocolate Grill and Texas de Brazil!!!

Back in Vegas!!

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , , at 11:22 pm by Foodie With An Agenda

So currently I am back in Vegas enjoying the 100 degree weather and experiencing some amazing food. One of the best parts of Vegas is that most of fine dining restaurants here have tasting menus which allow for getting to taste smaller portions of menu items. Get ready for reviews on RM Seafood, The Social Clubs, and many more!!

Power shake

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , at 1:20 pm by Foodie With An Agenda

So typically I do not post about super healthy things but with this I could not resist. It is a very yummy breakfast shake that will keep you full most of the morning. It is simply plain greek yogurt, almond milk, a little water, and as many berries such as strawberries, black berries, raspberries.

A quick summer meal!!

I do a lot of cooking and this is probably one of the easiest receipts ever. This is a quick summer meal that you can make ahead of time and just refrigerate and it does not need to be warmed up.  All that it is is pasta, olive oil, a little garlic powder, black olives which are optional, chopped tomato, parmesan cheese, and pepperoni.  We like to eat things a little healthier so we used Armour Turkey pepperoni which is probably some of the best turkey pepperoni that I have ever eaten because it tastes like pepperoni. Just mix all the ingredients together and throw it in the fridge to chill for a little while and there you go a quick, tasty, and light summer meal!!

Beer battered cheese curds!

Posted in Food, Uncategorized tagged , , , , , at 10:29 pm by Foodie With An Agenda

Sometimes you find the most amazing food in the most unexpected places. This is one of those times. Who goes to a flea market looking for good food. I wasn’t until I stumbled across beer battered deep fried cheese curds from Wisconsin. I really am not a fan of deep fried anything but we could not get enough of these.

They are amazing little pieces of cheese that are served hot with your choice of dipping sause. I chose ranch but you can get bbq,ranch,salsa, or hot sause. There was a massive line for these things and I see why!!!
