Give a choice between Manhattan and New England clam chowder, I’ll always take New England. To be honest, I don’t really bother with the Manhattan variety, like, well… ever. To me, a chowder just isn’t a chowder without a little cream in it.
THIS is the tomato salad that beats all other tomato salads in a battle. Fact. No other tomato salad even comes close. You can keep your Caprese. This is the one I dream about all winter long.
Labor Day weekend marks the unofficial end of summer for most Americans, but here in Brigantine it’s the beginning of what we call “local’s summer.” The island goes from bustling to sleepy in less than 24 hours. All the tourists go home, kids go back to school, and we get to bask in the still-warm-weather on practically empty beaches. It’s…
Crab cakes come in lots of different forms, but in my humble opinion, the classic Maryland style is undoubtedly the best.
