Chicken Thighs with Rosemary Tomato Beer Sauce

In high school I had a guidance councilor ask me what I thought I would be when I grew up. Not “what do you want to be” but “what do you think you will be,” much different questions for a kid, and much more accurate window into the future. I thought about it for a […]

White Bean White Ale and Ham Soup

Most of the phases of life we live fade in a way that we don’t really know the exact moment it ends. We don’t always  know the day we stopped being children or the moment we fell out of love, or the day a big friendships started to drift away. With moving, you know. You […]

Slow Cooker Beer Chicken Tacos with Jalapeno Slaw

I’ve often been accused of going overboard. Of being one of those people who just does too much. But it’s all smoke and mirrors in a way. I’m not as organized or even as interesting as I’d like you to think. I leave dishes in the sink far too long, my pantry is a mess […]

Mushroom Orzo and Stout Soup

Tomato Herb and Beer Poached Cod with Caramelized Fennel

I started this adventure masked as a blog just over two years ago. I decided when I first hit publish that this wasn’t a “let’s see how this goes” endeavor. This is was a full force, every piece of my life, both feet, all chips on the table undertaking. I was all in. My stack […]

Beer Carnitas Pizza

  When I was kid Mexican Pizza involved ice burg lettuce and cheap ground beef. Possibly the perfect example of how neither Mexican food or pizza were given proper credit for the potential they had to compete in the Fine Food arena.
