The show focuses on current events as they at times put a comedic spin on those events. They are also actively involved in promoting benefits / charity events. The cast has offered their time to festivals and have done Live Remote Show Specials.
James has come a long way in the past year with his role in HBO’s hit show The Deuce and notching a part in Marty Scorsese’s The Irishman (2019). He is an interesting actor who was once on the road to be a priest. Yet his love for acting pulled him the other way. Due to his rough upbringing and looks he has been offered gangster roles as of late. Yet he does not mind it as he believes “work is work”.

The old timers would have been proud of this talented lady who belts out their hits that are forever timeless. What we mean by old timers are the artists who crooned the crowds back in the 50’s and 60’s. Singers like Frank Sinatra, Jerry Vale, Dean Martin and Al Martino. The young lady, Vanessa Racci could make anyone sing along to these hits that she has rejuvenated with her own spicy recipe.
In a bowl, combine eggs, parmesan, ramps, chili pepper, salt. Slowly add flour and whisk to incorporate.
Ramps are only in season for a short amount of time during the spring. They are typically found on the east cost (through the Appalachia Mountain region.)
Preheat oven to 450 F degrees. Place ceramic or metal baking dish in oven to heat up.
Thoroughly wash and then dry ramps. Cut off white bottom part and set aside for other uses (such as addition to a salad.) You will just be using the top green leaves for this dish.
This is my take on clams casino. It is meant to be a lighter, spring version of the traditional dish. The ramps are a nice compliment to the briny, sweet clams and I decided to use Panko breadcrumbs for additional texture.
