My Top Picks for Eating Out in Bloomington

Hello everyone! 

I'm going to be completely honest: I hate cooking. And I hate cooking because, quite frankly, I can't cook. I even have a hard time making a decent turkey sandwich. I can never quite get the right amount of mayonnaise - it gets me every time. 

Any way, due to my depressing lack of...

My Quest for the Perfect Burger

I'm what people call a foodie. I mean, I'm really passionate about food. I love cooking, I love going out to eat, I love trying new food; I just love it.

Food, everybody.

Just went to Finch's Brasserie for the first time yester-evening. It's right on Kirkwood underneath Campus Candy, and it is almost invisible with its tiny sign. I'd say that on a scale of 1 to good Bloomington restaurant, it's a beautiful Bloomington restaurant. It's a part of Slow Food, which is...

 
Mother Bear's

Today, I was thinking about all of the amazing things I've done since coming to IU and it was hard to narrow this post down to just one experience.  There are a few, however, that stand out in my mind as being extraordinary.  Here at IU, there are so many things to do.  It's impossible to get bored...
