Food and Beer Pairings

Something about the cool air and the snow made me want to roast a chicken yesterday. There is just something about warm, comfort food that makes you feel all cozy inside. That’s just what this roast chicken did. I’ve never actually roasted a chicken, so this was a new adventure, but a fun one! Once …

Tonight we decided to go with breakfast for dinner. It’s always good to spice things up a little bit! 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.

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 …

We really decided to go with a burger theme this week, didn’t we!? Turkey Burgers earlier this week, then chicken burgers last night! This recipe was a total experiment. We had no idea how these were going to turn out. We actually tried to grind the chicken thigh ourselves – that didn’t work out so …
