I Just Can’t Get Enough Tenacious Traveler

When my local hangout started offering The Traveler Beer Co.’s options in the early spring I was fast to jump on them.  I’m always happy to try options I’ve never had before and the offerings from Traveler hadn’t previously crossed my path.  When I got to their Tenacious Traveler I fell in love.

With a tang of citrus, and a bite of ginger, Tenacious Traveler has become one of my favorite drinks this spring and summer.  It’s combination of malts and hops, along with a decent alcohol content for a Shandy, lead to an enjoyable evening drink without filling you up as quickly as other beers tend to do.

If you have the option to pick up a pack, I’m going to suggest you grab at least two.  Once you pop open and have your first sip, you’ll quickly understand why I just can’t get enough Tenacious Traveler.

Parmesan New Potatoes

Parmesan New Potatoes

If you’re anything like me, then potatoes make up a more-than-sufficient part of your diet.  Whether it’s potato chips, fries, mashed potatoes, or even the classic baked potato, I love my spuds.  So when Olivia taught me this recipe for Parmesan New Potatoes, I was thrilled.  After tasting them for the first time, I was even more excited.  Now, I’m handing off the recipe to you to try out.  I’m sure you’ll enjoy them.

Parmesan New Potatoes

Ingredients:

  • 3lb New Potatoes
  • 1/2 cup Butter, softened (1 stick)
  • 1/2 cup Grated Parmesan
  • 1 Tbsp Salt
  • 1/2 Tbsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt

Ramping Up For Easter

Easter Ham

Easter Ham

Easter is coming up surprisingly quick this year.  Normally we have almost a month between St. Patrick’s Day and Easter, but due to the Paschal calendar and the lunar cycles, we don’t have the same time to prepare as we normally do.  So, since we only have about a week, we’d better get started.

Most people have a Ham for Easter, and I’m all for that.  But what side dishes do you serve?  Rolls, of course.  Maybe a nice Spring Salad.  Deviled Eggs are popular, but they’re more of an Hors D’oeuvre in my opinion.  So what are you planning for your Easter dinner this year?

St. Patrick’s Day Round-Up

ShamrockSt. Patrick’s Day is finally here and I’m putting together this list of all the St. Patrick’s Day recipes and ideas I’ve come up with in the past as well as this year.  I hope you enjoy them, and I hope you have a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Great Corned Beef and Cabbage: Part 3; Corned Beef and Cabbage (Finally)

Great Corned Beef and Cabbage

You’ve taken the time to properly brine your Beef Brisket.  You then took even more time to make your Beef Brisket into real, homemade Corned Beef.  You’re a pro at this, and that stuff smells and looks awesome.  It’s finally time to add in the cabbage and make the Great Corned Beef and Cabbage your St. Patrick’s Day deserves.

Of course if you’re just now coming to the site and you didn’t have the 12 days it takes to make your own Corned Beef, then store-bought is fine (thank you, Ina  Garten.)

So, let’s get to the Corned Beef and Cabbage already, right:

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 lbs Corned Beef
