Blood Orange Beer Pound Cake

I’m sitting in a coffee shop in a little part of East LA called Silverlake. Near the house that’s no longer my home. All of my belongings, except an oversized suitcase and some beer, are packed tightly into a moving truck somewhere along the West Coast. It occurs to me that I don’t really live […]

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 […]

Goodbye Los Angeles + Avocado Wit Beer Alfredo

The photos in this post  were taken with a vintage film camera in or around Los Angeles over the past 10 years. I took them with a 1965 Nikon F (excluding the pasta photos) Los Angeles has become a part of me, imbedded itself into my soul and grew me into the person I have become. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Rosemary Beer Biscuits with Stout Sausage Gravy

Let’s pretend for a second that you’ve never had biscuits and gravy. Like you’ve never sat in good company at a crappy diner in a small town eating sub par biscuits and gravy washing it down with shitty coffee like it’s the best breakfast you’ve ever had. Like you’ve never had someones grandma make them […]

Mushroom Steak Pasta with Garlic Beer Cream Sauce

I’ve spent the past few weeks making my way up the West Coast, traveling from brewery to brewery, enjoying the company of Craft Beer’s finest. A journey much less about scribbling my name inside a few hundred books with a black Sharpie marker than it’s been about connecting to this community I’ve fallen in love […]
