Beer Bloggers Conference: Recap from Milwaukee #BBC17

Jeremy Freeze, Gourmet Everyday Photographer & Contributor When Milwaukee was announced as the location for the Beer Bloggers Conference 2017 at the close of the 2016 conference, we weren’t quite sure what to expect. Tampa had been our first Beer Bloggers Conference experience, and being from the area, we already knew the beer scene there….

Chicken with Creamy Lemon Caper Sauce & Roasted Asparagus #SundaySupper

For most working moms, chicken is a staple. Whether boneless skinless, whole, or even nuggets, we all have it in our freezer, and let’s face it.  We have it, because we know our kids will eat it.  They’re programmed from birth to love chicken nuggets and many  are taught that any new protein, “tastes like…

3 Daughters Cider Cocktails: Florida Cider Caipirinha

In Florida, everyone will tell you that “it’s not the heat; it’s the humidity,” and that may very well be true.  However, regardless of heat or humidity, summer is prime time for cocktails…cool, crisp, refreshing cocktails! I’ve often said that I eat and drink my way around the world, and through my travels, I’ve come…

Southern Sweet Tea Brined Chicken Biscuit Sandwich #SundaySupper

The real name of this sandwich was “Sweet Tea Brined Cornbread Crusted Chicken Biscuit with Fried Egg,” and the more accurate description is even longer. However, the sandwich itself, regardless of name length, is one cohesive, Southern-inspired, piece of heaven, and while it seems difficult to make, it’s actually quite easy. **My tip is to…

Golden Girl Granola Crusted Mahi Pasta Appetizers

Every once in while, I get inspired to create recipes from unexpected ingredients.  This was no exception.  My challenge…create an appetizer using granola.  Yes, granola…the yummy mix of oats, honey, nuts, and any mix of flavorful ingredients.  Yes, granola…the breakfast food that I eat in a big bowl with milk.  Yes, granola…the portable snack mix…

Freezer Clean-Out Meals: Venison-Parmesan Flatbreads

Like many people, I have a freezer full of partial bags of peas, single breakfast sandwiches, leftover spaghetti sauce, unidentifiable plastic containers, and ziploc bags of mystery.  However, rather than leave these things until it’s time to buy a new refrigerator, I try to clean out periodically and cook with what’s there.  Over the years,…

Arepas with Shredded Pork & Pickled Onions

In the south, we have “hoe cakes,” but in South America, specifically Venezuela and Columbia, they have “arepas.” While arepas are similar to hoe cakes, their distinct difference comes from the type of corn meal used.  Hoe cakes are made from unlevened simple cornmeal, but arepas use pre-cooked cornflour, which can be found in many larger…

4th of July Celebrations: Key Lime Cream Puffs #SundaySupper

July 4th is just around the corner! American Independence Day is celebrated on the 4th of July every year, because it represents the day that the Declaration of Independence was adopted and that the United States became an independent nation. People love to throw big celebrations on the 4th of July with plenty of food…

Bacon-Chocolate Twists with Black Lager Affogato

As a foodie and craft beer chef, my brain is always in overdrive brainstorming ideas for combining two of my favorites…beer and dessert.  Many people can’t imagine beer and desserts going together, but they are SOOOOO WRONG!  True…BAD beer doesn’t work well with dessert, but EXCEPTIONAL beer is perfect for a dessert. This dessert has…
