Easy Apple Pumpkin Beer Bread

Easy Apple Pumpkin Beer Bread

It’s over. The end of 2020. A lot of us stayed home for a lot of the year, and some of us still need to in order to stay safe. So, what do you do when you are stuck at home in winter? Bread making was all the rage early in the pandemic. I didn’t jump on the bandwagon exactly. But I did make this Easy Apple Pumpkin Beer Bread that turned out amazing! I really do like to use…

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. 

Beer Can Chicken

Beer Can Chicken

Have you ever had beer can chicken? If you haven’t, then you must. It’s seriously such an easy way to perfectly cook a whole chicken on the barbecue. 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…

Grilled Acorn Squash with Tomato Curry Chutney

Grilled Acorn Squash with Tomato Curry Chutney

You don’t have to do it that way, but there is something tasty about cooking outside. Bring this recipe camping…

Whole Wheat Hot Cross Buns with Dried Berries

First off I have to admit I have never had a hot cross bun before, and I am not sure why?! They are bready, and I like bready things; and they also have a lot of flavour with all the spices added, and I love spice!

Everything Bagel Spread

Everything Bagel Spread

When I think about an everything bagel, poppy seeds, onion and garlic flavours come to mind. I thought it would be pretty cool to have a plain mini bagel with a light cream cheese spread made up of everything that goes onto an everything bagel, plus more – an everything bagel spread!  You could keep this recipe simple by just using onion flakes, minced garlic and poppy seeds, or follow the recipe for more flavours! I went with the typical…

Sage Simple Syrup and a Gin Cocktail

Sage Simple Syrup and a Gin Cocktail

I have an abundance of sage. My husband bought me a huge herb planter this summer and it is about 50% sage, so I needed a recipe that would use a decent portion of it. I thought a sage simple syrup would be an interesting addition to summer cocktails. I have made plain simple syrup before and figured adding sage to the mix would make an infused syrup, perfect for creating unique cocktails.  To start the sage simple syrup, I picked a…
