Pale Ale Grainy Beer Mustard

Want to make a super simple recipe that will wow your friends and family!? Make your own beer mustard!

Rhubarb Barbecue Sauce ~ Plus a Rhubarb Recipe Roundup!

Rhubarb Barbecue Sauce ~ Plus a Rhubarb Recipe Roundup!

If you follow along, you know that I have written about rhubarb before; and as long as I can remember we had rhubarb growing on my parent’s acreage and my mom would use it to make cakes, sauces and then give the rest away. Now that I am all grown up and on my own, living in the city without a rhubarb plant, I am lucky to be one of those people that my mom gives rhubarb to! I thought a…

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…

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. 

Rhubarb Shrub

Rhubarb Shrub

It’s rhubarb month! Okay, it’s not actually, but it is for Chews and Brews. Every post for the month of August will feature the amazing vegetable (yeah, that’s right, it’s a veggie!) rhubarb! I am kicking off the series with a rhubarb shrub, but before we go into those details, let’s discuss rhubarb first.  Rhubarb comes in a stalk similar looking to celery, but is very sour and must be sweetened. The leaves are actually poisonous and should not be…

Fajita Spice Blend

Fajita Spice Blend

My husband and I love making our own spice blends and rubs, and lately we have been hooked on our homemade fajita spice blend; using it on fish, chicken, pork and beef! Sometimes…. we don’t even make fajitas with it!! It’s incredibly easy to make in a flash and adds so much flavour that I guarantee you will wonder why you ever purchased the processed blends from the store!  You can make your fajita spice blend, seal it in an air tight container and store…

Red Enchilada Sauce

Red Enchilada Sauce

Cinco de Mayo is coming up and I will have two recipes for you to help celebrate. I cook and eat Mexican all year round because it is one of my favourite cuisines. I even have a huge cookbook called Mexico that I often look for inspiration. To start my mini-Mexico series of two posts, I bring to you homemade red enchilada sauce. It is way better than anything you can buy in a can and is not hard at…
