Food and Beer Pairings

I don’t know many people who won’t eat guacamole. Even those that won’t eat avocado alone will usually eat guacamole. It’s perfect for a large group because it usually goes fast, and this is what you want, since avocados have a tendency to brown quickly. This is why it’s perfect for a Superbowl party. This …

Well the Superbowl is just around the corner, and I wanted to share with you some of the appetizers that I plan on making this Sunday. Even though my beloved Steelers are not in it this year, I still cherish each and every moment of the football season. It’s so short! You have to stock-pile …

I was craving tacos this week, but it didn’t make sense to make them with Zach away because I would never have been able to eat them all by myself. While I was contemplating the idea of making them, I decided tostadas would be more fun. We have never actually made them, but we’ve made …

Sometimes you just crave a sandwich. We eat a lot of sandwiches, and if your name is Zach, then you like to make meat and cheese only sandwiches…and roll them up. I know, he just gets stranger and stranger as the days roll on. I literally have to keep a stockpile of muenster cheese and …

Well Zachary has left us yet again. He’s off to Texas for a couple of days, and I’m here holding up the fort (or is it “down the fort,” I never really understood that saying). Well not really a fort, but a condo with a dog and some beautiful sunny, yet cool weather. It really …

Well it’s the weekend, and we were craving something super sweet and breakfast(y). We haven’t done a true breakfast in a while, so what the heck. We combined all of our favorite ingredients into one scrumptious pancake. These buttermilk pancakes are stuffed with bananas, walnuts and dark chocolate chips, and it’s everything you could imagine …

This is what I like to call a “play” on spaghetti and meatballs in a soup form. This wasn’t what I was going for originally. I was actually going for a thinner based soup (almost brothy-like), but it came out much thicker than I originally had hoped. I don’t hate it though. It actually came …

Sausages are so diverse. You can just about take any meat and make a sausage out of it. A lot of the time, butchers like to do a combination of meats to make a great sausage. They are pretty darn good at it too. There is some incredible stuff out there. As first time sausage …

Yes, everything you’ve heard is true. Austin, TX is scrumptious. Who would have thunk it? I certainly wouldn’t have. Never have I ever been to any part of Texas. Before we ventured out that way, my stereotypes were much like others who have never been to Texas. I imagined BBQ after BBQ after BBQ with …
