2 years

We can't believe it's been 2 years since we started Zucchero&Butter. I created the blog when I was senior in college and asked allison to join me. Sorry we haven't been posting on the blog the past few months. allison and I have full-time and part-time jobs so we're always busy working. But we promise to be better this year! Below are a few pictures of what we did this year. We did a lot of eating, cooking/baking, inventing ice creams, shopping at farmers markets, and traveling {to New York}.

jeni's in chicago

We're so excited that Jeni's Ice Cream finally opened a shop in Chicago {Lakeview, Chicago}. Jeni's is originally from Ohio. The first time allison and I tried the delicious ice cream was in Dublin, Ohio.

Ever since I started making homemade ice cream, I didn't want to buy ice cream anymore. However, jeni's is the exception! She uses the freshest ingredients. I made her goat cheese ice cream w/ roasted cherries.

mile end

When allison and I went to Montreal last year {September 2012), we learned that smoked meat sandwiches and poutines are a must-eat in Canada. When I found out Mile End served these Canadian dishes, I had to stop by when I was in Brooklyn. The first bite brought me back to Montreal. If you are ever in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn, stop by for their smoked meat sandwiches.
