Beer and Lime Cauliflower Tacos

Beer and Lime Cauliflower Tacos

Cauliflower is kind of a big deal. It can be found on almost any menu these days: fried, roasted, in salads and soups, or as an alternative to carbohydrates as in cauliflower rice. I am not going to lie; I am totally the type of person that jumps on food-trend bandwagons and hangs onto them with all my might. Another trend that started a long time ago is “Meatless Monday’s” and we like to incorporate meatless meals on Monday’s as…

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…

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!

Peanut Butter Protein Bars ~ Cookbook Review & Giveaway!

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…

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!
