Is it antithetical to get home from the gym and bake banana nut bread? We didn’t think so.
It felt like summer last night, and what better beverage for that occasion is there than lemonade using a Mennonite recipe in a book we picked up in Lancaster? Then, of course, we had to use the glasses given to us by our friends at the Revere Tavern.
One night, I decided to surprise Justin with a Puerto Rican feast. The stuff in the middle: Mofungo. Mashed plantains with ham, garlic, olive oil, and seasonings. There are different versions of this. Most call for mashed fried plantains. However, that pushes the calories per serving to about 900 (and who eats just one serving?)…
A staged shot of my favorite bourbon.
There is nothing specific I want to draw your attention to in this picture, just a “character shot” of John and Peter’s (and yes, that is a hockey stick up on the wall). For Justin’s birthday last month, I told him to pick any place he wanted for dinner, and he chose this legendary New…

He did the rest from scratch: dinner rolls, a killer sauce that soaked in the goodness of meatballs, brasciole, and hot sausage cooking for many hours. Again, for…

I love when old-school diners have customized coffee mugs. Just adds to the experience.
I had Duke Bourbon a few years ago and thought it was great, and not because I’m a fan of its namesake. I just had to get a picture of this set-up. Okay, I also had my picture taken with “him” as well. Saving that for another time!
