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…

Tropical Ale Vinaigrette

Tropical Ale Vinaigrette

Homemade vinaigrettes for salads are not uncommon in my house. Often I will mix a vinegar with an oil, some herbs and spice and throw it on the salad of the day and it always tastes exceptional! When my friend gave me a six pack of Dead Frog’s Tropic Vice, Tropical Fruit Ale, I decided to try it in a vinaigrette; a tropical ale vinaigrette!

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.

Lime Basil No Churn Ice Cream

Lime Basil No Churn Ice Cream

It’s September now, and that, for some, is a sign of summer’s end. I know that for me, I am starting to think about putting away the patio chairs and mowing the grass once or twice more before the snow comes. Also my closet is starting to shift from capris and light t-shirts, to long sleeves, pants and back into boots. But summer isn’t completely over yet and that’s why I am pushing out one more summer recipe; one being this awesome lime basil…

Rhubarb Fig Ginger Marmalade

Rhubarb Fig Ginger Marmalade

Not everything you make with rhubarb has to be sweet, such as in a rhubarb barbecue sauce like this. This rhubarb fig ginger marmalade I have created is sweet, but not the dessert type of sweet. It goes great on grilled pork or chicken, but I like it best with goat cheese on a crostini. It’s very simple to make and you can preserve it in mason jars to keep it on your shelf for a long time.
