AC Food and Wine Burger Bash

July 29, 2014

ac food and wine burger bash

Saturday was the first Burger Bash for the Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival. The event was hosted by Martha Stewart and featured a selection of sliders, fries and drinks. I have not gotten the chance to check out the NY Burger Bash, so I have nothing to compare this one to. Judging by pics that I have seen, the NY Burger Bash seems much better. For the price of the ticket, I expected just a little more variety and creativity of burgers. I can’t complain about the amount of the burgers because there was an abundance of them and also a selection of fries including truffle fries. The drinks where provided by Jack Daniels and some servers had beer and wine and a cash bar was also available.  Overall it was a nice event and who can really complain about having unlimited burgers and drinks on the beach.  Check out some of the pics.

Bacon Cheddar Biscuits with Jalapeño Honey Butter

July 24, 2014

bacon cheddar biscuits with jalapeño honey butter

The addition of bacon makes anything better and biscuits are no exception. This recipe has just enough bacon so that it doesn’t over power the flavor of the biscuit. I like anything spicy so I decided to make a jalapeño butter but added a little honey to sweeten things up. This biscuit is great for breakfast, but also great for lunch or dinner with buttermilk fried chicken!

Coconut Spodee Freeze Pops

June 30, 2014

coconut spodee freeze pops

Freeze pops are the perfect summer treat and I’ve been dying to use these Zipzicle pouches that make it so easy! I was lucky enough to get my hands on a bottle of the new Spodee white from White Mule Farms. I am a fan of the red and thought the white would be perfect for summer cocktails. The Spodee white is blended white wine fortified with high proof alcohol. It is light and fruity with notes of pineapple, amaretto, and toasted coconut. I had an extra can of coconut milk laying around and figured it would be the perfect compliment to the Spodee white. These will definitely help you cool off in the summer heat!

Cinnamon Sugar Buttermilk Donuts

May 29, 2014

cinnamon sugar buttermilk donuts

Freshly made donuts are a real treat. These cake donuts take less time than yeast donuts because there is no rising time involved. If your not a fan of drowning them in cinnamon sugar try powdered sugar or a little sprinkling of vanilla sugar. Whenever I use a vanilla bean, I throw the pod in a glass jar with some sugar, shake it up and the vanilla bean will begin to flavor the sugar. These donuts are best enjoyed the day you make them, but will also be great the next morning with a cup a coffee.

Norwegian Getaway Part 3 and a little Miami

st maarten portPort of St. Maarten

The first stop was St Maarten. I was here a few years ago and always remembered the lobster from Lee’s Roadside Bar and Grill. Even with the time constraints of having to be back at the ship by a certain time, it was necessary to go back to Lee’s. After a little time on Orient Beach we headed over.
