Food and Beer Pairings

Every once in a while, we just crave a large bowl of pasta. It’s a great meal if you are planning on doing a long run the next day, and it holds a ton of nutrients you need to energize your body. Even though a good tomato sauce sounds great on pasta, it’s not the …

Here we go with burgers again! While my sister and dad were still in town, we HAD to make burgers especially with buffalo, since it’s so much easier for us to get out here in the West. This recipe did not disappoint and is one of our best burger recipes yet! We took your average …

Besides the frequent use of bacon in almost every dish we make (I know I know, we should really cut back…not (=), we rarely branch out into the world of the pork. It’s not that we don’t like pork tenderloin, it’s just not often that we crave it. With my sister and dad in town …

Zach and I are known for eating foods with a lot of calories. Most of the time it’s done on purpose. We run a lot and need extra help with extra calories! We decided to tone it down a bit last night and go with a fresh salad. Sometimes we just crave a really good …

Zach and I have both attempted to make handmade perogies before. Fortunately for Zach, his turned out delicious, mine on the other hand fell into a big heaping pile of potato goo. Yesterday, I decided to take another stab at it. Success was on my side this time. With a little bit of patience and …
