Winter Warmer Beer Pumpkin Ice Cream

Winter Warmer Beer Pumpkin Ice Cream

In the dead of winter, most don’t think about making ice cream. But what if it were a winter warmer beer pumpkin ice cream?! A boozy, spicy, sweet treat might be just the perfect end to a heavy winter meal – maybe after chocolate stout beer beef stew? That’s what I was thinking when I made this ice cream – and by make, I mean throw a few things together and into the freezer. That’s right. This is a no…

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…

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.
