Emily is an awesome cook and a foodie in the best sense of that word. She is very meticulous about using whole natural unprocessed ingredients, locally sourced if possible... She makes everything from scratch-- I've even seen her make her own butter! Plus, she is warm and engaging, witty, and fun to hang out with.

Emily was amazing! She and her husband brought me a totally unnecessary but so very appreciated homemade canned peaches, and amazing pear dressing. I literally felt like I already knew them, that's how friendly and sweet they are. Loved having them and would host them anytime. Emily knows SO much about home projects and about the city of Chicago. Highly recommended!

Emily was amazing! I loved going to her home and getting to meet her, Misha and her room mate. Getting to pet her two sweet dogs was a treat too. And she made these delicious and filling soups that were just the right thing for such a cold day. And delicious toppings to make them even better! Also... some sweet cookies for dessert. I only took one, but I think I could've eaten the whole plate! If you're in Chicago and you can go eat with Emily, do. You will be happy you did. :)

Emily was an amazing host! It was a cold day in Humboldt park and she served a delicious verity of soup to warm us up. The ingredients were fresh and the meat was from a local farm so you could tell she put a lot of care into her cooking. I can't wait for her next meal!

Emily's mealshare was amazing. It's great to see such good people join. She made three different types of soup with toppings. The green split pea soup was incredible and in the Chicago winter, just the type of food you need to warm you up. Emily's friends are great people and I had a blast chatting with them. Definitely mealshare with Emily if you get the chance! Can't wait to have her over for a meal at my home :)

I braved the icy breath of the arctic gods to trek out to Humboldt Park for Emily and Misha's mealshare. From the moment I stepped inside their home, my whole self -heart, soul, toes,- was warm. It was as if the angels had covered me in a blanket made from the wool of little baby lambs who surrounded me and bleated out harmonious lullabies. I was transported on a lounge chaise carved of gold-inlaid ivory by .... wait. Sorry, different fantasy. Epic mealshare. Seriously, Emily and Misha were incredible hosts. The three different soups, the baked feta with the olives,onions, and tomatoes, the pink-panty drop were spectacular. Emily can truly throw down in a kitchen. Rivaling the food for the soul-warming trophy was the hospitality of my hosts and the very good company of Emily's sister, roommate, and other friends. A very nice mix of people sharing excellent food, wine and stories. I could have stayed all night. Wait. I did. Most of it, anyway. Emily said this was her first experience with mealsharing, but was obviously not her first time entertaining friends and strangers in her home. She is a natural at it, and Misha plays host like he was born to it. I would be happy to break bread with them anytime.

Misha, Emily and their two dogs were great hosts. This was my first Meal Sharing event and I was not let down. The soup was delicious and conversation flowed easily!
