Orange Cherry Beer Muffins

  These aren’t just muffins. They are two forms of quiet rebellion. First, it’s beer for breakfast. And unless you’re having a brunch mimosa or in the general vicinity of Las Vegas, breakfast booze is generally frowned upon. Second, lets be honest, muffins are basically just cupcakes. But you and me, we’re different. We aren’t […]

Honey Chili Beer Chicken

I see how you get here. The keyword searches that bring you to this little blog of mine. Most of these keyword searches make sense, like “Beer recipes,” “Cooking with beer,” and even “The Beeroness.” This past year nearly 8,000 people came to my blog with the keyword “The Beeroness,” or it could have been […]

Chocolate Stout Shortbread Cookies

  I need to start a petition. To change the usually paring of Milk and Cookies to Beer and Cookies. First of all, it’s just a better idea. If you want to lure friends over, “Hey I’ve got beer and cookies” will go over much better than the alternative. Second, milk is gross. Sure, you […]

Buttermilk Beer Pancakes & How to Make Super Fluffy Pancakes

  Pancakes are my first food memory. I’m one of 8 kids (all girls, wrap your head around that) and one of  about 27 cousins (I don’t even know the actual number) which made alone time with my grandparents really special. The spring after I turned 4, I spent a Saturday night in a My […]

Stout Pot Roast & How To Make Pot Roast

This is an exercise in patience. You can hurry a lot of things but pot roast isn’t one of them. If you aren’t going to take the time to cook it low and slow, you might as well just make something else. Or have take out. The rules of pot roast, the American Grandma’s Saturday […]

Chocolate Stout Ice Cream Sandwiches

This is more of that inherent rebellion I told you about. I’ll take a stout any day, but am more drawn to them in the middle of August when everyone else is reaching for those session IPAs. Ice cream is fine, but when it’s freezing outside, it’s the most appealing. When the summer heat hits […]

Caramel Apple Beer Bread

  I love this bread in spite of how easy it is. Yes, in spite. In fact, I almost resent it for being so easy, I like a challenge. I like to work for it. I like beer pizza dough that takes 24 hours and I love that it takes all day for me to […]

Beer Cheese Ball

  I was a lifeguard for three years in college. Mostly at summer camps, poorly run water slide parks and a bad summer on floating dock in the middle of a dirty lake. Late one night at a summer camp in Western Canada the guys who ran the camp decided to let the pre-teen campers, […]

Mini Chocolate Stout Cheesecake with Salted Beer Caramel Sauce

    I’m the kind of girl that brings beer to a baby shower. Which works out well, when it’s a digital baby shower for the kind of girl who likes those sorts of things. Like my friend Bev who, in her multi tasking ways, is in the process of growing not one but two […]

Chocolate Stout Candy Cane Cake & Christmas Beers

  “Christmas Beer” is a bit of a broad term. It’s isn’t really a style since brewers are free to bring anything from an IPA to a barrel aged stout to the holiday beer table. It’s more of an opportunity. An opportunity for beer people to do get creative, draw inspiration from the season, and […]
