Stick with Sticky Fingers

Stick with Sticky Fingers

As a baker myself, I make a point to try all the local bakeries. I heard from several people that a new bakery was opening in Kaukauna, and as soon as they posted their menu, I couldn’t wait to try it. Right in the heart of downtown Kaukauna, Sticky Fingers opened in...

Do Not Attempt to Dodge this Caribbean Taste

Do Not Attempt to Dodge this Caribbean Taste

Tuesday. What is there to do on a Tuesday? Hardly anything, ever, really. Tuesday falls too early in the week and yet is so far removed from the weekend. Sometimes it is just another Monday masquerading as a Tuesday. 313 Dodge might just be what you are looking for....

Wisconsin Staples at Gabe’s Wisconsin Kitchen and Tavern

Wisconsin Staples at Gabe’s Wisconsin Kitchen and Tavern

As I’m getting used to living in Wisconsin, I’m discovering some of the Wisconsin staples when it comes to food and spirits. I knew about Spotted Cow and cheese curds before I moved to Wisconsin, but that was about it. Fortunately, Gabe’s Wisconsin Kitchen and Tavern...

Bushels of Fun at Bauer’s Apple Shed

As soon as the leaves begin to change, even ever so slightly, so does my weekly menu. When the shades of green turn to red and orange, my refrigerator, once full of peaches, quickly becomes home to all things apple. Taking a trip to a local apple orchard is my...

Faris Popcorn is Poppin’

Faris Popcorn is Poppin’

When I previously lived in Illinois, I became familiar with the popcorn chain “Garrett Popcorn.” One of my favorites mixes was their Garrett Mix, their world famous cheddar and caramel corn mix. When I moved to Wisconsin, I wasn’t sure if I would find a popcorn...

Delivering a Taste of the Carribean

I still remember when the Jerk Joint first opened. It’s always so exciting when a new restaurant opens up in the Fox Valley. Jerk Joint was no different. First time there I ordered the sweet ting chicken. I left a review on yelp saying: “I wouldn’t be mad if this was my last meal.” To this day nothing has changed. I can honestly say I’ve never tried anything I didn’t like here. If I ever have a bad day, chances are I’m ordering something from here.

This time I did delivery. I haven’t eaten there in person since about early March 2020. Based on their social media accounts, they do seem to be open for in person dining. My go-to dish almost every time I go is the sweet ting chicken. This time I decided on ordering the 2 meat platter, (which includes peas cabbage, and rice) that way I am able to try a new meat, but also not neglecting my favorite dish. But I didn’t try anything new, I went with another fave… the drunken pig. Also every time I go, I always make sure to grab a slice of rum cake. It always makes me feel like I am right in the Caribbean with every bite I take. It is definitely a must try!

Bring Jamaica to Wisconsin

Thinking back to when I have dined there in person, they are always blasting reggae music, so it really makes me feel like I am in the tropics. Which is always a nice feeling, especially in Wisconsin! Even though we are coming up on spring, a bit of warmth via food is never a bad thing. Next time I really want to try the mango lime bowl. Come to the Jerk Joint if you want to treat your taste buds to the flavors of Jamaica!
