Velveeta Shortage? No Problem

You may have heard about the ongoing Velveeta shortage. Kraft says only limited quantities of America's favorite cheese loaf will be available until late February. So, replace the usual processed cheese spread dip with fun (and real) cheese fondue.  


Another perk of this recipe? You're guaranteed to have plenty of beer in the house this Sunday. 

Don't Fear Fruit
Do you spend more money on pre-cut fruit because you aren't quite sure how to prepare it on your own? Owner/Chef Shelley Young tackles hard-to-cut fruit like mango and pineapple during a recent WGN Lunchbreak.
