Having lunch with mom🍴🍷❤
Tilapia with Lump Crab, steamed zucchini & roasted garlic butter red potatoes. Chef Joe also created a special Smoked Pork Belly and slaw dish for us. Absolutely mouth watering😍 And Creme Brulee for dessert.
Even though Coopers Hawk is quickly opening many new locations across the state and not a “mom and pop” restaurant like I normally dine at, I really enjoy the friendly atmosphere, amazing food and great wine.
One of the great benefits of becoming a wine club member is that you get 2 Free tastings, two bottles and two free dinners (valued at $20 each) in the month of July all for ~$38.
Yesterday we visited the new location in St. Charles, Illinois and got to personally meet the chef, manager and many of the staff. With so many food allergies we have to be careful where we eat but Chef Gregory was so helpful. I love the fact that they also have a gluten free menu so the only other two things we had to ask is that they eliminate any corn or soy sauces from our meals.
I enjoyed the Dana’s Parmesan Crusted Chicken and mom had Shrimp & Scallop Risotto. She could eat the Scallops alone because they were perfectly cooked!
I would highly recommend trying Coopers Hawk. Great for a date night, family friendly or solo.
Love making healthy snacks.
Used fresh basil from my garden, a variety of tomatoes and fresh mozzarella from the market and yummy triple berry balsamic from my girlfriends company. One day I’ll learn how to make my own mozzarella.😉
I love coming out to Wheaton Marianos Market to visit Chef Tong. Today he made me a Special Yellowtail and Veggie Maki. (It had cucumber, jalapeno, and avocado with Yellowtail and Lime on top.)
I love Japanese food but have to careful because of my allergies to soy, Thats why I enjoy eating here so often.
$8.50 Special Order

What a great turnout for the Gluten Free and Allergy Free Expo in Schaumburg today! I would have to say 90% of the people took advantage of the great deal on Groupon for $15 for 2 people for the entire weekend. I know I did! #gfafexpo
So here’s just a few of the vendors I sampled and enjoyed. I will post more tomorrow on day #2.
Banana Bread French Toast
Asian slaw w/ Chicken
Corned Beef & Roast Beef Sandwich
Just a mile or so off the Expressway Dinos Cafe in Bloomingdale is sure to have something for everyone.
When I’m super hungry I love coming here because they have rather large portion sizes and so many entrees to choose from, many under $10.
I met the New owner and she was absolutely fabulous along with my waitress Amy. They were more than accommodating with my food allergies which is hard to find at a lot of restaurants. Thank you again P. And I definitely will be back to try your weekday specials under $7
*They also have amazing Skillets, Eggs Benedict and corned Beef hash which I’ve had previously!
Located on Lake St. Next to DD and across from Caputos Bloomingdale, Il.
Although I knew most restaurants would be busy on a Sunday for brunch, I lucked out and only had to wait about ten mins. My waitress was Awesome. (Be sure to ask for Nicolette.) I’d highly recommend. Fast, fulfilling and friendly cafe in Roselle Illinois. With plenty of options for everyone!
