Blood Orange Ale Vinaigrette

Blood Orange Ale Vinaigrette

Do you remember way back at the beginning of 2020 when I said that I would be back writing and creating recipes twice a month? Yeah, well, I didn’t exactly take into account that a pandemic would occur… I am not going to drone on about COVID-19, as it’s often all that we talk about now… But what I will drone on about is this blood orange ale vinaigrette! It’s perfect for all of your summer salads! It is so…

Mixed Berry Beer Muffins

Mixed Berry Beer Muffins

If you follow me, and I hope that you do, you will know that I am not a big fan of baking; but, you will also know that I have dabbled a little here and there in baking with beer! These mixed berry beer muffins have a blueberry wheat ale in them to help with flavour and whatever else yeast and bubbles will do for baking… see how much I know about baking? Not a lot… I know that blueberry…

Salmon with Pilsner Asian Glaze

Salmon with Pilsner Asian Glaze

Happy New Year! We are in a new decade, 2020, and it still feels futuristic to me. Also, the 90s being 20-30 years ago seems impossible… how did time fly and how am I this old?! I turn 40 this year, which is both very exciting and unbelievable to me. Not only do I not feel 40, I don’t act it! I don’t plan to ever act my age, to be honest. That’s one of my resolutions for 2020 –…

Kung Pao Beer Chicken

Kung Pao Beer Chicken

I love a good stir fry. It’s kind of my way of cleaning out the vegetable drawer in the fridge when there are peppers, celery, maybe some carrots or broccoli threatening to expire on me. I can quickly whip up a sauce, find a protein like chicken breasts in the freezer, and start a pot of rice, and voila, dinner is done! When thinking about a stir-fry sauce, I thought about how I could incorporate beer and then my stir…

Pale Ale Yogurt Marinated Chicken Breasts

Okay, so it’s been a while since I have posted. Spring got away from me a little, but I have remained active on Instagram showing you what craft beers I have been trying out. One of the great beers I did try this spring, but waiting until now to post, was the Ten Peaks Pale Ale from Canmore Brewing Company. When I had this beer, I thought it would be great to incorporate it into a recipe, and alas, here…

Lager Beer and Pineapple Juice Chicken Tacos

Lager Beer and Pineapple Juice Chicken Tacos

I have made tacos, or taco-like dishes before, and a couple of times with beer. These are a little different in that I am using my Instant Pot to make the shredded tasty chicken part of the taco. And, of course, there is beer involved! These Lager Beer and Pineapple Juice Chicken Tacos were undeniably my favourite of the tacos I have done. They were juicy, full of flavour, and just down right addicting.

Everything we cook these days is on the grill.  It is way too warm to be hunched over a stove or oven, inside a stifling hot kitchen.  Instead, we sit outside, in the shade, throw food on the grill, and enjoy craft beers.  Summer isn’t my favourite season (gasp!), but this is my favourite part about summer; grilling outside (or smoking!) and enjoying summer craft beers like IPAs, radlers, and wheat beers.  And of course, if you don’t know by now,…

Oatmeal Stout Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal Stout Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal Stout Oatmeal Cookies… I know… not entirely creative. While I was sitting back enjoying Ghost Train Oatmeal Stout from Hell’s Basement brewery, I immediately thought of oatmeal cookies. And creativity aside, I decided to just make the best damn oatmeal cookies I could using this thick, roasty beer.
