If I Could Only Eat 12 Things for the Rest of My Life They Would Be*:

Inspired by @amieshmamie. *subject to change without notice
  1. 1.
    Sourdough bread (warm) and salted butter
  2. 2.
    Italian Sausage Tortellini Soup
    Pack a load of vegetables, tomatoes, and tortellini in a wine and beef broth that simmers all day and you have the ultimate comfort food. Serve with #1.
  3. 3.
    Pancakes
    Preferably with a plethora of spreads and toppings. (See here: How to Throw an Epic Pancake Breakfast). Always with warm real maple syrup.
  4. 4.
    Macaroni and Cheese
    It should look exactly like the picture: the perfect balance of creamy and stringy.
  5. 5.
    Cobb Salad
    So I can have bacon, blue cheese, and avocado, obviously.
  6. 6.
    Guacamole
    With loads of cilantro.
  7. 7.
    Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies
    Preferably always fresh from the oven with a sprinkle of sea salt.
  8. 8.
    Roasted Broccoli with Lemon and Parmesan
    Because veggies are good for you and these are the best veggies in the world. I like to nearly burn them so the curly edges are crisp and salty like a potato chip.
  9. 9.
    Shrimp Pad Thai
    For an Asian craving...Plus, I really need some seafood on this list.
  10. 10.
    Ice Cream
    If I had to pick only one flavor, it'd be Graeter's Strawberry Chocolate Chunk, but ideally this includes all frozen treats—milkshakes, floats, Popsicles, and Italian ice.
  11. 11.
    Fruit
    This is probably cheating, but I don't want to live in a world without raspberries or nectarines or sweet cherries or apples. You know what I can live without? Those lame melon and grape laden fruit cups they give you at crappy restaurants. Screw those.
  12. 12.
    Burger and Fries
    Sometimes nothing else will do. My favorite version is at Wolf's Ridge Brewing with a fried egg on top and truffle fries (picture here: (https://instagram.com/p/9OmuUiG4DG/). But let's be honest, a Wendy's burger will do the trick when a craving hits.
