Tabbouleh and Strawberry Lemonade Fizz

My mom’s homemade humus and tabbouleh were two of my favorites for lunch as a kid. I always loved opening my lunch box at school and finding these two dishes in there. My friends also loved them and would ask for her to send them some too. I did a version of her humus recipe last year… Continue reading Tabbouleh and Strawberry Lemonade Fizz

Another year goes by and suddenly it’s Valentine’s Day again. Since I don’t really celebrate the holiday, I was thinking about ignoring the day of love once again. Then I started seeing advertisements for chocolate themed couples massages at a certain Pennsylvania resort and I just had to make something chocolate this week. Chocolate bark… Continue reading A Chocolate Pairing For Valentine’s Day

Spaghetti Squash Pasta With a Harvest Ale

Now I already did a pairing with an Oktoberfest beer, but that one was domestic. The… Continue reading Kielbasa and Oktoberfest

Oktober Fish and Applesauce

Oktoberfest is going on right now! Since I can’t be in Germany to celebrate, I figured I could bring a little of the celebration to my kitchen. However,  it’s also the middle of apple season. I can’t pass up any apple related foods. Why not combine the two? After all, applesauce and beer both go… Continue reading Oktober Fish and Applesauce
