Pineapple and Vanilla Infused Tequila

December 2, 2014

pineapple and vanilla infused tequilla

I made this a few years back for Christmas and it was a big hit. It’s such an easy thing to make and is great for your friends who love cocktails. When the tequila is fully infused, you can serve it on the rocks with a slice of pineapple or try adding it to your favorite margarita recipe. You can eat the pineapple, but I will warn you it is very strong!

Fried Green Tomatoes and a BLT

Fried Green Tomato BLT

I picked up some green tomatoes from the farmers market and figured I’d try my hand. It was actually my first time ever having green tomatoes and making them. I have to say I’m pretty happy with how they turned out. They were especially good on the BLT with roasted garlic basil mayo. Hope you guys enjoy!

Rhode Island Road Trip

This past weekend the bf and I took a road trip to Rhode Island. If you live on the East Coast it’s really great for a quick getaway. We visited a few beaches, went bike riding along the coast and of course ate! The stand out was the Nordic Lodge in Charlestown. They offer an all you can eat lobster buffet with lots of other fresh seafood, steak cooked to order, and a Haagen-Dazs ice cream bar. The grounds are a great place to relax after stuffing your face complete with hammocks, fountains, a lake and a petting zoo. I will definitely be back to visit Rhode Island in the future.

AC Food and Wine Burger Bash

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

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!
