Food and Beer Pairings

So for Christmas, I bought Zach some really cool bags of pasta. I actually found them at Homegoods! Surprise! Homegoods is so amazing sometimes, don’t you think? Actually, it’s amazing all of the time. I could get lost and go broke all at the same time in that store. Well this pasta is equally as …

Happy New Year Everyone! Now it’s time to eat! Now I know there are many traditions out there. Growing up, we were the pork and sauerkraut type of people. And although I love sauerkraut, Zach hates the stuff. I tried to make it for him last year, and well that was just completely unsuccessful. He …

Muffins are such a fun treat, and I hardly ever make them. I know, crazy right?! They are the perfect breakfast accompaniment and they make a great dessert too! We have a lot of left over ingredients in our fridge from the holidays, and I really didn’t think I was getting through the extra buttermilk …

We hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday, and we hope you have a great New Year too! We had a great Christmas and made some delicious dishes (which we will get to at a later time – I promise). Now that our cookies are FINALLY done, it was back to doing what we do …

Because winter is just around the corner and all of those fall/winter veggies are gracing the market’s shelves, we decided to go with a wintertime version of our Summertime Huevos Rancheros recipe. What a spectacular idea …

Who doesn’t love stuffed shells? They are little pockets filled with cheesy goodness. Most commonly though, when you think of stuffed shells you think of the traditional recipe of ricotta, a red sauce and sometimes sausage or another type of meat. Because it is fall, we decided eliminate the red sauce and sausage and add …

Growing up, I was raised in NJ, but most of our extended family was from the Pittsburgh area. Every 4th of July we would go back to visit, when the 4th of July festival was going on. This festival was a crafter’s dream, but it also had and still has delicious food. Meatball sandwiches and …

We’ve been frying up a lot of things in this household lately. I don’t care what anyone says, when it comes to wings and eggrolls, fried is the way to go. I’m sure most of you have had the combination of jalapeno and cream cheese is some way. It’s a great combination! The coolness of …
