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…

April Craft Beer Review

April Craft Beer Review

April 7th is National Beer Day; perfect timing for Chews and Brews’ April Craft Beer review! April is an interesting month for me and beer drinking. I am starting to want whites and more fruity types of beers, but still can’t kick the darker, heavier beers. This beer review has mostly dark beers – a way for me to say good-bye to the winter types of beers and hello to the summer, lighter beers. This will probably be the last post…

March Craft Beer Review

March Craft Beer Review

It seems rather fitting that I am posting my March Craft Beer Review on St. Patrick’s Day, even though none of these beers are Irish! Guinness is a really great Irish beer and has a long history dating back to 1770. It may be one of the most famous beer brands in the world. You can pretty much guarantee you will find it on tap, or in a can, at almost any pub. It’s a reliable, comforting, rich, creamy stout…

Cinnamon Simple Syrup

Cinnamon Simple Syrup

Making simple syrups is like it says in the title: simple! I like playing around with different herbs and spices to make interesting simple syrups that can be stored in your fridge for weeks, waiting for the next cocktail inspiration. I have made a sage simple syrup that I have posted in the past where I used to make a gin cocktail.  This cinnamon simple syrup is just as simple as any other simple syrup and you end up with…

Happy Birthday Chews and Brews

Happy Birthday Chews and Brews

My little food and beverage blog is celebrating its one year birthday on March 6th! I can’t believe a year has gone by already and I especially can’t believe how much I have learned in a year! From food photography and styling (still learning lots there!) to light web coding (lots more to learn there too) and social media engagement (wow there are a lot of platforms to engage on!) – I am excited to hit the ground running in…

Southern Food Cooking – 70 Recipes!

Southern Food Cooking – 70 Recipes!

Tomorrow, January 22nd, is National Southern Food Cooking day and it only seemed proper to pull together a round up of the tastiest southern food cooking there is out there! As a Canadian, living in one of the most Northern major cities of the country, my experience with southern food cooking is limited. However, in August of 2015 my husband and I went to New Orleans, Louisiana where I had my first taste of the south and we fell in love immediately….

Muskoka Brewing Review

Muskoka Brewing Review

Muskoka Brewing is a craft beer brewery in Muskoka country in Bracebridge, Ontario that was founded in 1996 by Gary McMullen and Kirk Evans. I haven’t been to this brewery but if I am in that neck of the woods, it will be the only chance I have to try Muskoka Brewing beer again. Sadly this craft beer is pulling out of the Alberta market due to rising taxes associated with selling beer here. Before Muskoka beer vanished from our local…

Basil Goat Cheese Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes

Basil Goat Cheese Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes

How do you shorten a title like basil goat cheese stuffed cherry tomatoes and still provide a small detail of what the post will be about? You can’t. Well I couldn’t. Every part of that title deserves to be there and if you try making these sweet little gems, you will know what I mean. The basil pops through the rich creamy goat cheese and the cherry tomatoes aren’t just a carrying pod for the creamy delight; they also add…
