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…

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…

Spam in a Snuggie

We all change. Our palettes develop. We become more refined. But I had this hunch that my palette does not think it’s too good for Spam. I think it’s one of those things where it gets a bad rep because it’s processed, packaged in a can and has one of those gross-long shelf lives. But…

Enchilasagna

Having just moved to Ohio, I have very few friends in the area. I was pumped when this wonderful, charming girl (who I kinda know) wanted to hang out. Friend date! I offered to cook for her. She said she liked Mexican food and cheese and she tries to steer clear of gluten. I love…

Chicken Caesar Grilled Cheese

I’ve always thought that life was a cruel bitch for making New Years resolutions come around just when it’s getting bitter cold out. All you want to do is hunker down inside and eat something hearty and warm but you’re bombarded with all of this guilt to better yourself. Let me tell ya: as I…

Winter Sangria Chicken

Typically, I drink beer. Which means I happened to have full bottles of wine just hanging out in my house. Life is hard, right? So I grabbed a bottle of pinot grigio and some of this winter fruit that came out of my stocking and I put it to good use. It’s a perfect easy…

Pork ‘n’ Bean Grilled Cheese

The concept of comfort food is really dependent on your life experiences. But whoever you are, there’s nothing better than comfort food in the dead cold of January. Personally, I love grilled cheese, mashed potatoes, baked beans, mac and cheese, chicken pot pie… shit, now I’m hungry. Which is why I’m happy I did this……

Gingerbraid (Gingerbread Challah)

We’re halfway through Hanukkah and on our way to Christmas. Living in a household that celebrates both holidays, I love combining them and making our own traditions. This year, I did just that by making some Gingerbread Challah. If there’s one thing that always disappoints about gingerbread, it’s that it’s not actual bread. If there’s…

Lil Fig Puddings with Boozy Caramel Sauce

I’ve been listening to some Christmas music… a lot of Christmas music… lately. But I’ve been actually listening to it and processing the lyrics. I have to say, I don’t like what I’m hearing. I’ve even put together my list of Top Five Most Fucked Up Christmas Songs. Merry Little Christmas – I thought this…

Christmas Ale Stew

As I write this column, the snow is falling outside my new place in the Cleve. I have moved from my beloved Philadelphia, where I have been for my entire adult life, back to my home state. While I am sad that I will be leaving so many wonderful people and places behind, I am…
