Buffalo Blue Scalloped Potatoes

Sometimes I like a beer so much that I get overly excited in my purchasing. It’s the whole “eyes were bigger than my stomach” syndrome… but I like to call it “my eyes were bigger than my liver”. To combat my stuffed beer fridge, sometimes I have to take delicious beers and find new ways…

Goodbye Summer Muffins

I am generally a summer Grinch. This summer wasn’t so bad. Lots of rain and a ruined garden. But it’s better than the past ten summers, I’d say. Regardless, I’m ready to usher in fall. But before that, i need some closure on this past season… So shove some of these Goodbye Summer Muffins in your…

Grandpa Salad

I was having a conversation with my mom about foods that we ate twenty years ago. A lot of it was stuff that she used to cook for us… but that turned to a conversation about stuff my Grandma used to make. Cinnamon ice cream, fried walleye, cheese sandwiches… and then my mom mentions wilted…

American Pie

Patty Pizza, Patty Pizza, Bacon’s Jam Fry Me A Pickle As Fast As You Can Texture. It’s more important than most people give it credit for. It can be the make or break element of a dish. It’s also psychological and shit. I mean, I’m no psychologist… but I know having a lick of a…

Hi friends. Welcome to a new segment of Bacon and Legs I’m calling Around the World In Tasty Days. I’m not making up any recipes here. I’m just reading about other countries and learning what they like to eat for breakfast, and then trying them out myself. I think it’s crazy how trapped we are…

Coco-Mango Rice with Pork Belly

I’m going to be upfront with you. I’m not a full-time food blogger. I have a day job. Sometimes, it’s a time-consuming day job. Sometime I don’t have a lot of time to write a full-on story here about why I made a recipe and what it means to me. I made coconut mango rice…

#GoonLife

If I were on death row, I would want my last meal to be: an aged gouda and duck prosciutto crab rangoon sesame-encrusted ahi tuna, rare my Oberyn Martell smashed potatoes chocolate croissant (from France, not the American bullshit) I know it doesn’t all match, but I’m a dead woman, I don’t give a fuck….

Classy as Fudge

As a follow up to last week’s beer-candied orange peel recipe, I wanted to give you guys another chance to cook with the Southern Tier Choklat Oranj. While the candy is delicious on its own, I wanted to use it to enhance another recipe: orange fudge. I’ve been wanting to make a fudge recipe that uses beer as an…

Beer-Candied Orange Peels

As a maker of yummy edibles, my recipes often come from an inspiration ingredient. This week, that was so. While perusing my local bottle shop, I happened upon a bottle of Southern Tier’s newest offering, Choklat Orange. It’s a new version of their chocolate stout (Choklat). Mind you, I already know I love using Choklat as…

Go Home, Burger. You’re Drunk.

I guess you could call me a craft beer enthusiast… as in, I’m enthused about drinking delicious beers and lots of them. Not usually all in one setting, but occasionally I over-serve myself. Usually when this happens, I’m out at a bar. I can tell you exactly how it goes down. Around the time I…
