Kristin in her kitchen.

After spending most of my life at The Kitchen Sink as the dishwasher (growing up, my parents and grandparents were all excellent cooks and I did more watching and washing than stirring and seasoning), I have evolved into a cook myself. I’m also a newly-married, third year law student recent law school graduate lawyer living in Chicago. While you’ll read a little about those things here, you’ll read mostly about my endeavors to cook everything but The Kitchen Sink.

The Kitchen Sink has been featured at Serious Eats, FP Daily, Food Gawker, FoodieView, Yum Sugar, Chicagoist, BlogHer and Tastespotting.

    You are my personal hero. If you ever need somone to try out something new (in addition to Kevin that is), we are only two train stops away! And personally, i thought the mushroom caps were fabulous!

    1) This is great. I look forward to reading it.
    2) If you haven’t read the magazine (or it’s website), Cook’s Illustrated is fantastic. I actually don’t think the illustrated part is that fantastic, but they really explore cooking science as a means to fix your recipes. Great article last month in making flaky pie doughs everytime.
    3) This really makes me sound like a Los Angeles person, but…I haven’t read this book, but I read the script. It’s called Julie & Julia. It’s about a woman who decides she is going to cook every recipe in Julia Childs’ Mastering the Art of French Cooking in one year ( Really interesting, and it’s a true story about a woman’s blog that eventually gets published.
    4) Hey Kevin and Kristin – saw some wedding footage. You guys looked amazing. I’m glad to hear that Chicago is treating you well.

    This morning I was searching for a recipe for “Parker house rolls” and “Google” sent me here…lol. I scrolled and scrolled and when saw your site name it punched my button. I think I have a groove where I stand at the sink like indention. To make a long story short…I LOVE YOUR STYLE, YOUR PHOTOS, YOUR WAY OF TELLING A COOKING STORY…thanks for brightening a foggy, rainy morning in Florida. I needed to start out the day on a bright note.
    Best of luck to you in your law studies and all you are dreaming to do and to be.

    I just discovered your blog and love it. Like you, I went to NU. Perhaps like you, I graduated not that long ago (about 4 years ago). Like you, I love to cook, eat and write, and I also write a food blog:
    How coincidental. Maybe I know who you are and I don’t even know it.🙂

I hope that your posting keeps up even when you are a busy lawyer.
