This sounds like such a neat book! I looked it up, and in Chicago, it's legal to have up to five hives of bees. Perhaps a future hobby :)

In the middle of dip season... that made me laugh about loud. Growing up in Iowa, I had my share of "dips" made with melted velveeta + a can of Rotel :) I mean, it's pretty delicious.

The crockpot is your friend! I love making 'homemade' shredded chicken to use in different recipes - 1 pound fresh chicken breasts, 1/2 cup chicken stock, 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Set on high for 2 hours, and shred with 2 forks! I have a crockpot with a black interior so it cooks a bit faster than a white one.

This is great info - I recently started using parchment paper for all baking / roasting, but mostly for ease of cleanup. I didn't realize it made a difference in not burning the cookies! Awesome.
