Homemade Pretzel Bites

Homemade Pretzel Bites

with Jalapeño Cheese Beer Dip

Posted on January 31, 2017
Pretzels and dip are a mainstay when it comes to any gathering. However, pretzels are usually dry and salty and no one really likes them. Not this time, though Homemade Pretzel Bites with Jalapeño Cheese Beer Dip are made just for each other. The pretzels are soft and flavorful; the dip is ooey-gooey amazingness. Together they are a flavor blast perfect for watching a championship match, nibbling while dancing awkwardly at a party, or just snacking on because you love to cook and love bread and cheese.

Beer Marinated Lamb

Beer Marinated Lamb

with Chimichurri

Posted on December 08, 2016
To celebrate National Lager Day, I decided to make something that I haven’t tried in a long while - Beer Marinated Lamb with Chimichurri. Okay, let me clarify. I’ve made loads of lamb after falling in love with this meat when I started working on this blog; however, I haven’t tried chimichurri in a while. Not being a fan of cilantro, it’s kind of obvious why. I figured that my tastes have expanded and evolved since making Ted Reader’s Mesquite Planked Leg of Lamb. Still not a huge fan of cilantro, or chimichurri, but the lamb was cooked to perfection, and the lager marinade made up for that.

Bratwurst Dinner

Bratwurst Dinner

with Beer & Onion Gravy

Posted on August 10, 2016
My husband and I spent nearly a month living with my grandparents while we had some work done on our house. During that time we were very fortunate to have amazing meals prepared for us every night. One of my favorites was Bangers and Mash. I was remembering Bangers and Mash with fondness when I saw National Bratwurst Day is on the 16th of August. Inspired, I procured some brats and cooked them down in German beer. Then I used that beer to make gravy and added some caramelized onions. Thus Bratwurst with Beer & Onion Gravy was born; a German variation on a traditionally British dish. I have to say, it was really good.

Eye of Round Roast

Eye of Round Roast

with Steam Whistle Marinade

Posted on July 12, 2016
While working with Steam Whistle Brewery on the Chill & Grill Contest I developed a marinade that was perfectly suited for beef. I just had to try the marinade right away, so I made Eye of Round Roast with Steam Whistle Marinade. The roast was succulent and flavorful. I served it with some smoky cheddar and horseradish mashed potatoes and, of course, an ice cold bottle of Steam Whistle Pilsner. I reserved a little of the marinade to add to the gravy too, this provided a surprising flavor boost.

Fried Catfish Tacos

Fried Catfish Tacos

With Spicy Sour Cream And Avocado Coleslaw

Posted on January 20, 2016
There's a bit of a story with these Fried Catfish Tacos With Spicy Sour Cream And Avocado Coleslaw. When I was a lot younger, back in my picky eater days, I was watching a show whose main characters were focused on a Mexican family and fish tacos. They were obsessed with fish tacos. I couldn't dream of ever contaminating my tortillas with fish! Fast forward many years, and I have to try making these tacos. What happened? I still remember the revulsion of my younger self. However, I am now older an adult and have more adventurous tastes. Right? Honestly, these were delicious. The fish was crispy on the outside, well seasoned inside. The coleslaw with cheese on top, ohhh and the cream sauce bringing it all together... It was fishy heaven wrapped in a tortilla. Or something. Eat it yourself. You will understand.

Smokey Southwest Chicken Legs

Smokey Southwest Chicken Legs

With Cattle BoyZ Smokey Southwest Seasoning

Posted on September 08, 2015
Smokey Southwest Chicken Legs came about when I wanted to pair dinner with my Corona. We had extra limes, so it worked out perfectly. The best part about this meal? After seasoning everything, and searing the meat, you just let it roast on the grill until it's ready. Then you serve it with a squeeze of lime to finish. Super simple, superbly easy, deliriously delicious.
