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 heads for the menu. It was a blind-date…

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.

Simple Shakshuka with Bacon Recipe

Shake a, shake a, shake a! At least that’s what I ought to call this poached tomato recipe. Traditionally middle Eastern, this Greek gal The Hairy Bikers make a Kefta Tagine in Morrocco that follows the same idea – but with meatballs and in a tangine. Smitten Kitchen has an Israeli shakshuka recipe that is…

Stovetop Whiskey Bacon Cheese Sauce Recipe

I wish I could say no to this sauce. I want to say no. Because something this tasty and good is just torture. Velvety, smokey, sweet, with the perfect cheesy consistency, it clings to anything you pour it on, spirals, gnocchi, or pasta. It is important, in my book, to have a sauce that sticks….
