10 Things We Hate About Blue Apron

Better than going to the grocery store! Convenient, easy, fun, interesting and all the things the internet promises me! But…. not so fast. For anyone who doesn’t know the difference between a mandolin and a grater, this may be true. But for someone who can make a pancake drunkenly (Well a pancake shaped sugary carb…

Bacon and Butternut Squash Penne

This dish is a take on a recipe I saw from Jamie Oliver a while back. We’ve substituted bacon for the pancetta and changed how the squash is prepared. It may seem like a small change, but I think it works. Using bacon in larger pieces and cooking them off a bit longer adds a…

Cinnamon and Sugar Candied Bacon

  This is a no brainer when it comes to entertaining or parties. Tailgates, holiday parties, reunions or birthdays, you’ll always be on the invite list once you’re known as “the candied bacon person.” The dish is easy to whip up. Outside of non-meat/pork eaters, it fits most diets. The sweet cinnamon and sugar combo…

Bacon Avocado and Tomato Sandwich

I know this looks like a take on a BLT, but it’s not. What this sandwich is though, is amazing. It’s an elevated version of avocado toast. Avocado is amazing. Avocado toast is even better. But a bacon avocado and tomato sandwich is a crunchy, savory and tangy dream. The simplicity of the sandwich makes it…

Old Forge Brewing Company

There’s no business like beer business. Especially the canned beer business. Old Forge Brewery is a 4 year old brewery in Danville. A town that stands outside of time itself. Drive in restaurants. Train shops. Other oldeny Things. If it weren’t for the Sheetz, you’d think Danville literally froze in the quaintest time possible. Old Forge…

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…
