The BLT. The legend. Everyone knows (and loves) a good BLT. And it is definitely on our list of Savage Sandwiches. You would never believe that this sandwich originated from tea sandwiches. Say what?! It’s so… not a tea sandwich. Read more
I love the idea of make your own food parties. Food bars are where you let the guests construct their own meal from the ingredients you put out. I’ve seen pizza bars, taco bars, baked potato bars, and cupcake bars. But the best bar ever?
The cupcake bar. A Sandwich Bar. And what better sandwich to start with than a BLT! Read more
One of my pet peeves is when vegan food tries to imitate non-vegan food. Like Mac N Cheese. No matter what it looks like, vegan “Mac N Cheese” will never taste like dairy Mac N Cheese. Likewise, vegan “bacon” is not like bacon bacon. And why are we even trying to make bacon? …I digress… so, it should come as no surprise that I have not tried to make vegan bacon before.

While this sandwich is only a few simple ingredients, the myriad of ways the ingredients are prepared and combined are as varied as the people who eat them. Read more
The Kentucky Hot Brown is a parmesan-cream-soaked tradition. I should know… I live in Kentucky. =P It is a staple on any good restaurant menu and shows up regularly at parties. Especially around Derby time. Every good Louisvillian has had a hot brown. And everybody craves one at one time or another. But who has time to make a turkey? Not me! So, I give you… The “Everyday” Kentucky Hot Brown.
We start with chicken, because it’s easy to come by and easy to cook, and usually provides some leftovers. This is the perfect leftover chicken recipe! Step one: fry up some bacon. See? This recipe is awesome already. Read more
