Palo Santo Wood Beer Braised Baby Backs

  Update It has been a busy and stressful fall for us. So busy that I haven’t had much time to cook. Kinda bums me out. I also have several new recipes I need to get posted. It takes a lot of time to keep up on a food blog. From photography to writing witty …

Well folks, this soup didn’t come easy. I ended up slicing two fingers and burning my arm. I should have gone to the hospital for stitches, but my inner Xena toughed it out. Warrior scars ROCK. This soup comes in many different versions, but I simply follow the basics to making my stuffed peppers, only …

  When creating a name for the recipes, I want to use every ingredient. All of those sound scrumptious. It’s Friday night happy hour at my house. Grabbed me a Magic Hat (or 2), and turned on Pandora’s Foreigner station. It’s not all Foreigner. It’s a mix of Journey, Bon Jovi, and a few others similar …

Bluemoon Pulled Pork

  Sweet citrus. This was a lot of work; even using a slow cooker, but well worth it. I’m not much of a BBQ girl. Imagine that! It has to be really yummy BBQ for me to like it. I did a little Internet search to find a qualifying pulled pork recipe. My inspiration came …

White Ale Potato Leek Soup

  Someone asked me recently, “Do you have a case of beer for each beer you use in your recipes?” That’s expensive! I do not buy by the case. Only for parties. The state of Pennsylvania has strict LCB laws. Boo hiss. There are a few (not many) venues that can sell by the bottle …

Guinness Irish Stew in a Puff Pastry

Happy First Day of Fall! This time of year is awesome. I really enjoy it for the the vibrant orange and yellow colors, and for the smell of baking. Even if it’s colder outside our senses are filled with warmth. Not to mention, I love Halloween and Thanksgiving. This is my first attempt at stew. …

Citrus Bluemoon Summer Ale Pasta Salad

  This is definitely a unique and delicious pasta salad if I do say so myself. That, or it’s the two beers I drank whilst making this. Ha! Tip You can prepare everything in advance, however, mix it right before serving. Not sure why, but it tastes best the first day. You may not want …

Holy Moses White Ale Potato Salad

Featured in Taste of Home Simple & Delicious This potato salad and the Kale salad are great for hot, outdoor picnics because it does not call for mayo. It calls for beer. And, who doesn’t like beer? I’m not a potato salad fan, but I have to say, “I really love this.” I’m not a …

Moan-worthy! I was doing a little dance in my kitchen when I was done. Soooo nom nom. – Words can’t even begin to explain it. I was so excited that when Glen was done exercising, I shoved a cupcake in his face saying, “TRY THIS.” If your reading my blog, you know I’m not a …
