Food and Beer Pairings

Yes, that’s right. Peanut. Butter. Truffles. Who doesn’t love a good truffle? They are the perfect little bite-sized treat to attack almost any and all of those sweet cravings. What was so surprising to me the first time I made them was how easy they were to make! Sure they require a little down time …

Yes, we are skipping the addition of “scrambled” eggs for this fried rice recipe and just dumping an egg on top at the end. Here is why…there is nothing I hate more in this world than a crusty, tough piece of scrambled egg. I think that it’s quite possible that I’ve only ever had fried …

Vegetarian pot pies are the perfect way to impress your guests at your next dinner party!

…and it wasn’t a complete failure! Woohoo! Zach and I have yet to delve into buying a pasta machine. Sure we could go out and get the hand-cranked version.
