Our Ladies Survived Snowmaggedon

It’s been a long, bitter Chicago winter. The recent Snowmaggedon, our third biggest snowstorm on record, was cruelly followed by sub-zero temperatures. Will our bees survive, we worried? I was considering poking myself in the eye with my snow shovel when Mother Nature graciously issued a reprieve — Sunday temperatures hit 50°F for the first time since November. We weren’t the only ones excited to head outside — our mighty bees had survived after all. Happy New Year ladies!

About Bob Vivant

I'm a writer, recipe developer, and photographer. I write about food and human nature and the curious intersection of the two. After collecting a few degrees and nurturing an unsatisfying, 15-year love affair with corporate America, I chose a new path, one that would allow my passions for writing and all things food to flourish. My cooking focuses on whole grains and fresh (local!) ingredients with a few naughty bites thrown in for good measure. Chocolate truffle cake anyone? I believe that recipes are mere guidelines, and food rules are made to be broken. I strive to make cooking more approachable for those who say, “I don’t have time,” “I don’t know how,” or “I just didn’t eat those things as a kid.” Anyone can make pizza from scratch and fast and easy doesn’t have to mean processed. I'm committed to changing the way people think about the food they eat – one bite at a time.
