Food and Beer Pairings

Let’s just say I have tried to make crackers before, and I’ve been completely unsuccessful. I actually think I may have burned a batch at one point. I decided to give it another go. I was a bit more successful this time around. This time I decided to incorporate some more butter and cheese and …

As I was going through past recipes, I realized that I have yet to make brownies! I know right?! They are obviously one of the most delicious baked goods on the planet. I really don’t know what I was thinking by looking these beauties over. This is the problem we have in our house. Sure …

Zach and I knew that we wanted fish last night, but that was about all that we knew. We played things a little differently yesterday and decided to just wing it: we would figure out what we were making once we got to the grocery store. The first step was to find the perfect filets. …

Anise-free biscotti that is. There are few things on the planet that I dislike, and star anise or anything that tastes like black licorice is one of them. This may be why I dislike fennel so much, unless someone cooks the crap out of it. Then it’s ok. Maybe you can begin to understand why …

Zach and I LOVE pizza. Unfortunately, we live in an area that isn’t really known for making a really good pie. Sure we have found a couple of pretty good artisan pizza shops, but nothing like that of the East coast. I don’t think there will be anyone that will measure up to the pizza …

There’s not much better out there than a really good, hearty muffin. Muffins are such a diverse food. You can have sweet muffins, savory muffins, sweet and savory muffins. You can make them as healthy as you want or as unhealthy as you want. The choice is really yours. I really wanted to try to …
