There is GF beer out there, but much of it is just not the same as good, ol' craft beer. Living in Continue Reading

TBT: Mars Cheese Castle

Mars Cheese Castle

This week's TBT is not being "thrown back" very far. Last June, I moved to the east coast for about 8 months. Well, I needed my car out there. So you know what that means ROAD TRIP! But wait, it gets better ROAD TRIP WITH AMY!! We started the day in Milwaukee, which is only about an hour from the Illinois border.
