Homemade Bacon Cheese Sticks Recipe

Cheese sticks are one of those things everyone loves, but you usually have to go out and overpay to get them. You can get them pre-made in the store to deep fry at home…but that means hauling out the deep fryer and running the risk of cheesy explosions. No one wants that. The cheese stays…

Old Bay Cheddar Bacon Fries Recipe

So there’s this brewpub in my hometown called Mad Anthony’s that used to be know as the Munchie Emporium and they serve these great fries/potatoes called Scooby Snacks.  Yes, go to ‘Munchies’ and order Scooby Snacks. (Did I mention they opened in the sixties and were an old hippy haunt?!) So these Scooby Snacks were…

Tomato Basil and Bacon Soup with Bacon Parmesan Crisp

Did you read all those words? I really don’t need to say more, do I? I like to think of this as the perfect party or family dish. Not so much in serving, but more time is needed to invest in preparation.  The parmesan crisps is a simple and easy recipe. The tomato soup takes…

Banana Peanut Butter Muffin with Bacon Bourbon Caramel Glaze

AKA…the ‘Elvis’ or the ‘King’ Muffin. The ‘King’ would probably be reborn, just to die all over again from eating too many of these crazy delicious muffins. In thinking of how to take our Bourbon Banana Blueberry Muffin to the next level, I realized that people were putting peanut butter in muffins. Peanut butter…in a…

Turducken Bacon Gravy

  This gravy is out-of-control delicious. You can do it with any roasted meat but when the mix of turkey, chicken and fatty glorious duck, this was one of the best gravies I have ever had. I had my turducken wrapped in bacon of course, so when it came time to crisp the skin I…

Bourbon Banana Blueberry Muffins Recipe

Say that three times fast! I love bananas, to the point that I could probably do myself bodily harm from eating too many…if that’s possible. Pancakes, bread, foster, frozen…or just plain peeled. The crazy part is I don’t care much for sweets. So in coming up with a muffin recipe, I wanted the flavors of…

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

  Winter is a great time for warm, comforting soups. This recipe is fairly simple, healthy, and makes a great staple to freeze to have all winter long. Roasting the veggies, as opposed to just boiling, gives them a deeper, smokier flavor. Plus when boiling, you lose some of the nutrients. So this makes a…
