WHAT’S REALLY BEHIND YOUR HANGOVER?

WHAT’S REALLY BEHIND YOUR HANGOVER?

Okay, well. I guess we know the answer to that. The better question might be, ‘Why does drinking too much cause a hangover?’ A while ago we came across an article about a study that claims drinking beer will make you smarter … While we’re all for believing that’s true, a new book, Proof: The Science of Booze by Adam Rogers, can help you get smarter about drinking beer (and booze in general). Think a hangover is solely the result of dehydration, blood sugar levels or bad mixing? Well, think again. We’re...

Cheers to Fall Flavors: Here Comes Pumpkin Beer

If you’re like me, those of you who love fall flavors are on pins and needles, waiting with anticipation for the culinary change of seasons. Bring on the gingerbread lattes, candy corn cupcakes and … pumpkin beer. Well have no fear. Earlier this week, Alaska Brewing Co. announced the release of it’s Pumpkin Porter.   What makes this news extra exciting is the brew’s change in status. Last year the brewery created the Pumpkin Porter on a pilot basis.   According to the release, the “response (to the pilot brew)...

Red, White & Brew-lee: Creme Brulee with Anchor Brewery’s Porter & Rumchata

This holiday weekend (the Fourth of July) is all about big fun, so I wanted to share a fireworks-worthy boozipe. And this Crème Brew-lée is definitely a crowd pleaser. Well, it pleased my crowd of one anyway. Crème Brûlée is one of my husband’s favorite desserts – until we started dating I had never experienced the wonderful goodness of creamy custard nestled under crunchy, caramelized sugar. Yet, despite my enthusiasm to create other GF-approved dishes, crème brulee seemed a kitchen ambition beyond my reach. Then I dared to ask for a kitchen...

Corona Cupcakes — Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Corona Cupcakes — Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone! In addition to that margarita you’ve been waiting all day to sip with friends, here’s a fun boozipe for your festivities. I really like how these cupcakes turned out. The Corona gives them a little je ne sais quoi. Although, it seems kind-of funny to use French to describe a treat we created to celebrate the Mexican Day of Independence, it’s true. These little cakes don’t taste quite like white cake. They’re not yellow cake. And they’re not vanilla either. But they are...

Orange Blossom Pilsner Vinaigrette

Orange Blossom Pilsner Vinaigrette

At TTCG we love trying new things, especially craft beers. While I’m game for an occasional IPA, a Siasson or a unique lager, more often than not, I favor darker varieties. Upon occasion I’ll go for a fruit flavored beer like a Shock-top, Blue Moon or Purple Haze, but these aren’t at the top of the list. So I was skeptical the first time I was handed an Orange Blossom Pilsner (better known as OBP) to try.  However, it was love at first sip. Now I hunt for this stuff (Publix at Wedgewood Lane please bring it back), aiming to always have...

Orange Blossom Pilsner Vinaigrette Boozipe Preview

Posted by on 3:56 am in Boozipes | 0 comments

Orange Blossom Pilsner (better known as OBP…  Yeah you know me is one of my favorite craft beers to date. What makes it even better is that it hails from right here in the Sunshine State. So we were super excited when the brewery provided us with a boozipe. That’s right. Not from a cookbook. Not from a friend. A recipe from the beer makers themselves. Details are soon to follow, but in the meantime — check out this quick video....

Chocolate Stout Mug Cake

Chocolate Stout Mug Cake

I can’t believe St. Patty’s Day has already come and gone! Since the four-leafed festivities fell on a Monday this year (boo), we traded green beer for a Chocolate Stout Mug Cake. Not a bad decision, especially since this boozipe leaved plenty of leftover Guinness to sip — a possibly splash a shot of Bailey’s into As promised in the Vine posted earlier this week, below you’ll find what might be the most satisfying boozipe to date. Don’t get me wrong, all the recipes posted on TTCG are super-tasty....

(Quick) Cooking with Beer: Irish Stout Mug Cake

Posted by on 3:42 am in Boozipes, Cooking with Beer | 2 comments

Not enough time today to prepare corned beef and cabbage, not enough time tomorrow to sleep off too much green beer? I know how you feel, but St. Patty’s Day is no time for feeling unlucky. Especially with this four leaf clover of a boozipe on hand. This was my first attempt at making a mug cake, so I was skeptical. You, however, shouldn’t be. I was so surprised at how fluffy and moist this cake turned out despite being a product of the (gasp) microwave. And, this super-quick (seriously — less than five minutes) boozipe left...

Cooking with Baileys: BN Pancakes

I’m a little disappointed this post is late, however you might end up wanting to thank me as you won’t end up like I  did — in the kitchen at 10 p.m. eating these awesome breakfast goodies in the name of celebrating National Pancake Day because, well, National Pancake Day has passed. I do however, recommend sleeping in this weekend and then rewarding yourself with a short (or long) stack of this brunch-worthy boozipe created with Baileys and butterscotch chips — my take on the much-loved Buttery Nipple shot...

Champagne Mushroom Risotto

Champagne Mushroom Risotto

  Stir, stir, stir — I’ve learned that’s the name of the game when it comes to making risotto. I’ve also learned that risotto is a method — not a specific type of pasta or rice, which explains why my first attempts to make this dish failed before ever leaving the grocery store. Several times I walked up and down the pasta and ethnic food isles searching for “risotto” to no avail. Most often, risotto is made from shorter-grained rices such as Arborio, Baldo, Carnaroli,Maratelli, Padano, Roma, Vialone...
