Broccoli and Kale Soup

Broccoli and Kale Soup

I’m a big fan of thick and creamy soups. In trying to eat a little healthier (have to do something to balance out the amounts of whiskey and bacon we consume!) I find that that combo leads to potatoes and/or cream being added to the soup. No ma gusta. Then the idea hit…beans. Loads of good...

Summer Scape Salsa

Summer Scape Salsa

Things we love about summer: Sun, Patio Drinking, Drive-Ins, Patio Drinking and Garlic Scapes. Garlic, in general, is a fave, but scapes are a magical summer treat.

Whiskey Roasted Veggie Burger

Whiskey Roasted Veggie Burger

With all the bacon we consume, every now and then we like to do our hearts a favor and bulk up on the veggies. Though the idea of one of those cardboard tasting veggie burgers is less than desirable. So we revamped the veggie burger into a roasted stack of awesomeness.  These thick cut veggies roast...

Cheddar Bacon Drop Biscuits

Cheddar Bacon Drop Biscuits

I will admit it…I love bread, probably a little too much. The problem is I don’t have the patience to actually make bread. Or the patience for most baking, really. So I’m constantly looking for quick breads and biscuits that I can make with pretty standard items. This has lead me to...
