Dining in Maine: Duck Fat Fries and Whoopie Pies

Dining in Maine:  Duck Fat Fries and Whoopie Pies

We had such a great time in Maine and, what's a vacation for, if not to splurge a little?  This little wine and cheese treat was a welcome back gift from the resort group that owns the cottage we rented.  But we also found some very good eating all around Maine... and some pretty good drinking, too!

  2. I love duck fat fries! That's why I keep the duck fat every year when I make Gumbo - then in the summer I make DFF. Mr. Picky Eater has NO idea what it is or he wouldn't eat it (it's labeled "frozen cooking oil" in the freezer) but he thinks you should freeze ALL our oil before making french fries!

  3. We always try to make it to Duck Fat and Two Fat Cats Bakery. Such a cute area of Portland. Glad you had such a great time in Maine. We haven't made it up all summer. It is killing me.

  4. How lovely! Ryan and I usually go to Kennebunkport each summer but we had to stay home this year because of the baby. Thank you for letting me live vicariously through your post!

  5. I think I need to schedule a trip to Maine. The rest of the gang would agree just based on those whoopie pies :)
