Hot Sauce Heaven

Jungle Jim’s | Cincinnati, OH

This place was bananas. I’m just going to say that we found several things we’ve been looking for–for years–here. Such as: El Yucateco Hot Sauce Salsa Picante de Chile Habanero – A bright green habanero sauce that Joe has been looking for for as long as I’ve known him. At least six years. You should…

Possibly the perfect bite.

Skyline Chili | Cincinnati, OH

This was the inspiration for the Cincinnati Chili we made recently. We go to Skyline Chili every time we’re in Cincinnati for delicious and unique fast food. And every time we’ve been, the place has been packed. Anthony Bourdain has said that when traveling you should always go to the place with the long lines. In Cincy, that’s…

Bar Lucca | Conshohocken, PA

We recently went out to dinner with two friends who recommended Bar Lucca in Conshohocken, PA. Overall a terrific night out, great food. The service is tapas style so the food comes out as it is finished, so there might be a traffic jam on the table, but if you are a group that likes…

Turkey Club

Gypsy Saloon | West Conshohocken, PA

Gypsy Saloon is a cozy little restaurant in West Conshohocken, PA. We recently went for brunch with my mother- and sister-in-law.

Anytime I see “all-inclusive brunch with mimosas”…

Grilled Whole Snapper

Summer Grilling Party

For this great late summer grilling menu, we travelled to Maple Acres Farm and the Lancaster County Farmers Market for all the veggies. We got this gorgeous whole snapper Bywood Seafood Market in Garrett Hill, PA. It’s a treat to have such a great little seafood shop within walking distance. We’ve had nothing but excellent experiences with their…

Piles of tomatoes at Maple Acres Farm

Maple Acres Farm | Plymouth Meeting, PA

I recently went on a dinner scouting trip with two of my favorite people, M and B, to Maple Acres Farm in Plymouth Meeting, PA. We were looking for inspiration and ingredients for the Summer Grilling Party we were planning. We came up all aces. Piles of tomatoes, basket upon basket of zucchini, onions, carrots,…

Lancaster County Farmer’s Market | Wayne, PA

The Lancaster County Farmer’s Market in Wayne, PA, was a revelation to me. In spite of the fact that I love great, fresh food, I regularly drive past this market to go to the Whole Foods down the road in Devon. Why? I think it’s because it’s open odd days and not exactly work-friendly hours.…
