Mac and Cheese with Blue Cheese and Bacon

I have a love/hate relationship with blue cheese. It’s stinky, yet flavorful and bold. I love it on salad with dried cranberries and walnuts, on a cheese board with pears, or with buffalo chicken mac! The other day I found myself with a container of crumbled blue cheese and began to scour the web for…

Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese

A couple of years ago, I made buffalo chicken mac and cheese for a good friend of mine and we almost ate the entire pan in one sitting.  He asked if I would make it again and I agreed, but I wanted to change it a little bit.  Last time I shredded the chicken and…

Logan Tavern – Birthday Lunch

As I mentioned earlier, my friend Stef’s birthday was last week, so I took her out to lunch at Logan Tavern.  I’ve only been once before where I had the chorizo burger and totally talked her into trying it.    I decided to try their featured burger, the LT Signature Burger with american cheese, bacon…

Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese

My good friend Benny likes buffalo wings, and by like, I mean love.  No matter where we go, if he finds them on the menu, he orders them.  I don’t like wings at all (some say that’s just not American), but I do like the buffalo flavor and the blue cheese dressing that comes on…

Lobster Mac and Cheese

Happy New Year! My mom and I had great plans for our New Year’s Eve dinner. It usually involves the tradition (I’m assuming southern) of making: something that swims, flies, comes from the ground and something green. Each has their own meaning (I forget), mostly to do with ringing in the New Year positively. Well,…
