Hi! I’m Andy. I am the Chief Development Officer (CDO) for a great charity in Chicago all day, every day and I really love that I get to have such a great and fulfilling career in philanthropy. However, this blog is really about my love of cooking and partying for and with my lovely wife, Emily, our family, and our friends. The purpose of this public journal stems from what family and friends have been telling me for years – Andy I love reading your recipes you should write a cookbook!
