About Whipped

Hello, my name is Caroline. I love gathering with friends and family for long meals to enjoy good food, drink and conversation. Welcome to my virtual table!

I live in Chicago and I am a mother, wife, business owner and blogger who loves to eat, drink and be merry. I started Whipped in 2007 to learn more about blogging and as an excuse to buy a fancy camera! I have continued blogging because Whipped has united me with old friends, introduced me to new friends, helped me become a better cook, picked me up on bad days and brought me new opportunities.

I like:
cheese, trees, good movie popcorn, bread pudding, chocolate, my scooter, the smell of campfires, beer, small farms, pretty glassware, cake and ice cream, new discoveries, french fries, late night bowls of cereal, reading, cozy scarves, champagne, estate sales, a good cup of coffee, different cultures, Sunday mornings, pondering inane things

I do not like:
raw tomatoes, vandalism, inconsiderate behavior, cleaning out the fridge, iceberg lettuce, hunger, ironing, wastefulness, humidity, bureaucracy, video games, corporate life, maraschino cherries, blue cheese

I love:
my family, my friends, gathering around food and drink, being underwater, color, donuts, autumn, learning new things, vanilla pastry cream, my dog, massages, a good laugh, red velvet cake, striped socks, baby animals, precocious kids, a perfect peach, life
