Stout Soaked Mushrooms and Herbed Goat Cheese Crostinis

Photos from my Instagram account  I made it. From LA to Seattle, up Highway 1. Past fat lazy seals, miles of winding coastlines, epic Redwoods, and into an unusually sunny Seattle. Although the sun has now given way to the typical rain, it’s somehow comforting. Although figuring out how to wield a camera in low […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

Roasted Broccoli with Beer Cheese Sauce

Leave it to me to take a perfectly healthy and delicious side dish, like roasted broccoli, and pour a bunch of cheese and beer all over it, effectively negating most of the health benefits. But really, it’s for your own good. There’s a good chance you’re sitting there planning a menu, a Turkey centric, end […]

Stout French Onion Soup

French onion soup was Julia Childs last meal. Seems fitting for a woman known for French classics. And who wants to mess with a classic dish that America’s Culinary Grandma chose as her last meal? Me. That’s who. Although I do like to stick to classic methods when it comes to cooking this warm bowl […]

Mushroom Quinoa Porter Chili & Is Beer Vegan?

 Is Beer Vegan? From an outsiders perspective, the question might seems silly. Beer, after all, is made from plants and water. At its most basic, the ingredients to make beer are simple: water, malt, hops, yeast; all of which are clearly non-animal. And while brewmasters have a way of working everything from bacon to whole […]
