Le Manhattan Bistro – Wilkes Barre, Pa

Le Manhattan Bistro – Wilkes Barre, Pa

‘Where are we?’ We literally blindly followed the advice of friends, which is always a 100% totally reliable way to make meal choices, to come to Le Manhattan. We knew there was French food, that fellow Traveling Circus fiends liked the place, and that was it. We had fallen head over...

Creamy Shrimp and Grits

Creamy Shrimp and Grits

  There’s an ongoing joke that I’m a non-southern Southerner. My family is from the South and cooking wise, I tend to identify with those roots. While I’ve lived all over the U.S., I’ve only ever visited the South. So I guess I’m Southern-by-association. What’s...

Peanut Butter Bacon Brownies

Peanut Butter Bacon Brownies

Two reasons I should not be the one making brownies – I don’t bake well and I hate chocolate. Not despise or dislike. Hate. Without the presence of peanut butter, chocolate is a crime against humanity. Yeah, I said it…bring it on! So why did I attempt these brownies? Why the hell...

Bacon Puff Cookie Stars: Cookies for Kids Cancer

Bacon Puff Cookie Stars: Cookies for Kids Cancer

When OXO offered some kitchen cookie freebies, the literal first thought I had was, “Can I make bacon cookies?” Kids love cookies. It’s perfect logic in a crispy bacon brain. So that, on top of the charity bonus, made it a great big yes to another OXO post. In addition to giving...

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...

Crispy Smashed Potatoes

Crispy Smashed Potatoes

Traveling and eating are two of our favorite things.  When they can happen at the same time…BOOM goes the dynamite! This spring/summer was a heavy travel season for me and it proved delicious. Of all the things I tried, one stuck with me because of it’s simplicity and tastiness. Tender yet...

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. They come from the green tops of garlic (think scallions to an onion) and have a great mild garlic flavor that goes delish in almost any...
