The Tastemaker Top 10 with Rachel of An Eventful Life

The Tastemaker Top 10 is a collection of 10 questions asked by me and answered by some of my favorite bloggers. Here they will tell you a little bit about themselves, their blogs, and of course, their favorite foods and restaurants. Today we're talking to Rachel, a fellow Chicago blogger behind the adorable lifestyle blog An Eventful Life. She's recently engaged (congrats!) and always has fun posts to share about food, fashion, and more...

Name: Rachel Kenny

Blog: An Eventful Life 

Location: Chicago, IL

In a few sentences, tell us a little bit about your blog.
A lifestyle blog featuring recipes, fashion DIY and bits and pieces of my eventful life.

Now, tell us about your...

1. Favorite meal, food, or cuisine: 
Seafood. Even when at the fanciest of steak houses I almost always choose seafood over meat. Lobster and salmon are my favorites.

2. Least favorite meal, food, or cuisine:
Anything with mushrooms!

3. Favorite restaurant in your city: 
It's nothing fancy, but Butcher and the Burger is my go to for a delicious meal. (It's also the only place I actually ever order a burger at)

4. Favorite restaurant outside of your city:
Poogan's Porch in Charleston, South Carolina. I still dream about their shrimp & grits.
5. Favorite guilty pleasure food: I have huge sweet tooth so anything covered in frosting and sprinkles.

6. Favorite ingredient (something you love to cook with, or something you see on a menu and know you have to order): If there is goat cheese in it, on it or around it I'm probably going to order it. Same goes for Brussels sprouts.

7. Favorite kitchen tool, utensil, product, etc.: My KitchenAid mixer. After years of longing for one, my fiance surprised me with one for my birthday this past year. It's been life changing.

8. Favorite recipe: Growing up I had a kids cookbook with a recipe for porcupine meatballs in it. It's the first thing I remember cooking and to this day it still reminds me of my childhood everytime I have them.

9. Favorite thing about blogging: Getting to meet such wonderfully talented ladies (and gents!) that share a similar passion.

10. Five favorite blogs/blogs that A Squared readers should know about:
- Sally's Baking Addiction: my go to for mouth-watering dessert receipes
- Iowa Girl Eats: Great for simple, healthy meals
- Design Darling: My go to for fashion & home decor inspiration
- Cedar and Rush: If you live in Chicago, you need to follow this lady to stay in the know on fab events in the city.
- Style Me Pretty: Since I'm knee-deep in wedding planning right now, I can't get enough of the beautiful weddings featured here each day.

Thanks so much for your thoughts, Rachel!
