Belgian Fruit Beer Brownies

Belgian Fruit Beer Brownies

Here I go baking again… with beer! I’ve baked with beer before – Banana Beer Bread and Milk Stout Chocolate Chip Cookies – both turned out perfectly! I am constantly looking for new ways to add beer to my cooking and baking. When we picked up this Belgian Style Fruit Beer – Cherazz – from Big Rock Brewery, I instantly thought the sweetness of the beer would be perfect in a dessert – and that’s the story of how these…

Beer Can Chicken

Beer Can Chicken

Have you ever had beer can chicken? If you haven’t, then you must. It’s seriously such an easy way to perfectly cook a whole chicken on the barbecue. Juicy inside and crispy outside, meanwhile full of flavours! Making your beer can chicken does require a few easy steps that will all be worth it in the end. First, obviously, is picking that beer. We’ve done beer can chicken with a cheap lager mostly, but this time I am using Big…

Grilled Acorn Squash with Tomato Curry Chutney

Grilled Acorn Squash with Tomato Curry Chutney

We grill and cook outdoors a lot in the summer. When I made this recipe, it was stinking hot out and there was no way any of this was happening inside my hot house. The squash was done on the grill and chutney done on the Coleman stove; this whole grilled acorn squash with tomato curry chutney was done completely outdoors! You don’t have to do it that way, but there is something tasty about cooking outside. Bring this recipe camping…

Wake-Up Coffee Porter Granola

Wake-Up Coffee Porter Granola

Granola is more my husband’s kind of breakfast; I am more of an egg white and ham sandwich type… or chicken breakfast sausages with eggs… or steak and eggs… savoury breakfast – that’s me! But I saw a recipe in one of my Beer Advocate magazines for a coffee porter granola and played on that idea to make this wake-up coffee granola for Eric! He likes it best with some coconut Greek yogurt! 

Banana Beer Bread

Banana Beer Bread

I love banana bread and I think you all know by now that I love beer; so it seemed like a no-brainer to me to make a banana beer bread! This recipe for banana beer bread turned out to be so moist, fluffy and held a lot of both nutty and banana flavours! You can use any beer you might have on hand, but I would suggest a brown ale because they tend to be nutty, malty and loaded with…

Peanut Butter Protein Bars ~ Cookbook Review & Giveaway!

I have an exciting opportunity to review a new cookbook! If you know anything about me, you know I have a slight addiction to cookbooks! The purpose of this cookbook – It All Begins With Food – is a little different than the cookbooks I am used to. Leah Garrad-Cole, from Love Child Organics, writes this book for parents who want to feed their children a nutrient dense diet full of clean and whole foods. So I am writing this…

Purple Cabbage Slaw ~ Summer Side

Purple Cabbage Slaw ~ Summer Side

You first saw a glimpse of this purple cabbage slaw in the Chipotle Salmon with Avocado, Apple, Yam Salsa post as it was my side dish for that meal. I was inspired to make this purple cabbage slaw from one of my Thug Kitchen cookbooks. First, I must mention that if you don’t have a Thug Kitchen cookbook, you need one. They are all about vegetarian cooking and they aren’t afraid to drop F bombs throughout the book. I love…

Summer in Peru: A Pisco Cocktail

Summer in Peru: A Pisco Cocktail

When we went to Peru in November of 2016 we fell in love with Pisco. Pisco sours to be specific, but I wanted to find a way to make another drink other than Pisco sours, and that’s where this Summer in Peru cocktail comes in! If you haven’t heard of Pisco before, it’s a fortified wine that is 40% alcohol, made in Peru or Chile. There’s a little debate between the two countries of who founded Pisco first. Peru says…
