IPA Simple Syrup Grapefruit Cocktail

IPA Simple Syrup Grapefruit Cocktail

I really like craft beer, in case you didn’t know that about me already! My favourite characteristic of craft beer is that the ingredients are usually hand selected, specifically picked to create a certain flavour characteristic. This end goal flavour characteristic is what brings me back to trying new craft beers all the time. One ingredient in beer is hops. Hops will give beer that bitter taste but also can add a level of citrus, floral, herbal or grassy type … Read more…

Shrimp and Corn Foil Packets

Shrimp and Corn Foil Packets

When it was still corn season I was working hard to use up the huge bag of corn we bought from a “street” vendor and I ended up trying to recreate a southern crawfish boil type of dish. Living in Alberta, we don’t exactly have access to a lot of crawfish, if any, so I used shrimp. You can make these shrimp and corn foil packets anywhere; in the oven, on the barbecue or over the campfire. For this specific recipe … Read more…

Chestnut Ale Turkey Chili

Chestnut Ale Turkey Chili

For 2017 I am changing the way I review craft beers. What I will do is continue to enjoy craft beers and post my reviews on my Instagram feed, and then once a month I will select one beer to review for Chews and Brews, and also use it in a recipe! That way if you aren’t totally a beer drinker, you are still getting a recipe out of the weekly post from me, and if you are a beer … Read more…

Guacamole Stuffed Chicken

Guacamole Stuffed Chicken

Who doesn’t love stuffed chicken!? Or stuffed anything, for that matter, especially when guacamole is involved, in my opinion! Last week I shared with you a homemade guacamole recipe and now I am using that recipe to make guacamole stuffed chicken. I won’t bore you with how amazing this actually turned out and instead get right to the recipe! 

Guacamole ~ Quick and Easy!

Guacamole ~ Quick and Easy!

Guacamole is crazy easy to make; I make it all the time in minutes and it tastes amazing with chips, on a burger, or stuffed in chicken. Usually I make guacamole just for chip dipping, but this batch is for my guacamole stuffed chicken! You only need five ingredients to make a tasty guacamole, and it is ready literally in minutes. But if you make it and let it sit in the fridge for a couple hours (if you can … Read more…

Grilled Ham and Cheese Bites

Grilled Ham and Cheese Bites

A lot of the time my inspiration to create a recipe comes from looking at leftovers in the fridge; much like these grilled ham and cheese bites. I had half a tub of cream cheese, half a package of prosciutto ham and half a baguette to use up. Yes, these grilled ham and cheese bites are a bit different than your standard grilled cheese sandwich! They are a little more on the creamy side from the cream cheese and salty from the prosciutto; … Read more…
