Food and Beer Pairings

Zach and I have this thing that whenever we visit a new place we get a cookbook. Instead of spending money on tees and gadgety-souvenirs (that we will absolutely NEVER wear or use) from our favorite tourist stops, a cookbook is a great way to cherish the memory. It’s useful (if you cook a lot) …

We thought that baklava would be a great way to end this week that has been almost fully comprised of Greek-inspired foods. We sent Zach’s mom off early this morning and we were very sad to see her go, but we had such a great couple of weeks! Utah was fabulous and despite the snow …

It’s still snowing. We are on day two of our Greek-fest! We are also on day two of our snow-fest! It is again snowing. Absolute insanity I tell ya. We really have to be thankful though. I mean it hardly did anything in the way of snow this past winter, and we really really needed …

  So we are going to trace back a couple of months and re-publish a recipe we have already done. One of the reasons we decided to go ahead and do this is because we totally needed some new photos. Also, Zach’s mom is here for a visit. She is Greek and we just had …

So I’m currently writing this post from the comfort of the backseat of a rental car driving on the Western slope of the Rockies and into Utah. It’s been fun really. We have experienced almost every type of weather you can imagine. From snow, to rain, to sun and more…Well I guess we have yet …

I took inspiration for this recipe right out of one of my favorite cookbooks of all time. Two summers ago we did a little backpacking trip through Wyoming and I picked up this glorious cookbook inspired by the best food Wyoming has to offer. They have some great food up there. Trust me. I had …

That’s right, it snowed. Well, it’s snowing. Still snowing. At this point, I don’t think it’s ever going to stop. Oh, and it was almost 70 degrees yesterday. Crazy! We all knew it was coming. How bad it would be? We still have yet to know because it’s STILL snowing. You all know that I …

Did I mention that I love Sprouts Farmer’s Market? Maybe I did, but I’m going to say it again. I love Sprouts. We got some great items yesterday for the ENTIRE week and didn’t break the bank! I’m hoping this love affair with this grocery store doesn’t end any time soon because I am officially …

So here’s the deal. It is almost IMPOSSIBLE to find fresh seafood in Colorado. Actually, I take that back. You can of course find fresh seafood, but you will have to pay an arm and a leg for it. Unless it comes from a nearby lake or maybe, perhaps a surplus of fish from the …
