Creepy Creations: The World’s Biggest Peanut Butter Cup

When it comes to Halloween candy and, specifically- which Halloween candy is the best- the conversations can get downright divisive. While there are candies that are universally reviled and should never be passed out to Trick-Or-Treaters (I’m looking at you, Milk Duds)– the top five, typically things like Snickers and Kit Kats- are ranked differently […]

Game Day Eats: Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese

Usually around this time every year, I’d be taking a day trip to The Big E with my friends to do a little impulse shopping, hop on some potentially dangerous carnival rides- and indulge in deep fried Oreos, French fries and gourmet macaroni and cheese.

Cookout Classics: BLT Tacos

Making a BLT isn’t exactly a challenge and doesn’t require any significant level of skill. It’s three basic, core ingredients and mayonnaise (if you prefer) spread out on some bread or a roll. Writing a long introductory post about something so simple doesn’t exactly feel necessary. What I *will* say is that BLTs are also […]
