Bock Beer Macaroni and Cheese

Thursday, May 12, 2011

33 Comments

You can blame Twitter for this one … While tweeting yesterday with @KerrygoldUSA we were discussing macaroni and cheese.  Specifically, we were discussing the seasonality of the dish.  Some folks apparently feel that macaroni and cheese is a cool weather dish … only.  In my humble opinion, even if it is piping hot from the […]

Chorizo Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Dates

Happy Cinco de Mayo!! Rather than give you yet another dip, enchilada, nacho, or taco recipe I thought to provide you a spicy/salty nibble to help soak up all the celebratory May 5th drinks.  For a long while I have been in love with bacon wrapped dates.  Something about sweet, tender dates wrapped in crisp, […]

Life is beautiful. Not to say it is not busy, because my plate is overflowing at the moment, but amid the hustle and bustle beautiful things have been happening.  First, I got to visit my best friend and her family in the UK where we had a lovely side trip to Wales.  Second, my brother […]

Once a year, or so, I go on a big trip. By big I mean international or at least cross-country.  This year my trip is to England to see my best friend and her family.  I tend to need a lot of preparation for international trips, which means I do not have a lot of […]

‘Super Evil’ Bacon Meatballs

I would like to ask my cardiologist to forgive me for what I am about to do … When ever you see a show about ‘extreme’ cuisine,  or read an article about the ultimate (Insert Food Item Here), there is a pretty good chance that the ‘extreme’ item will include some bacon.  Bacon has reached […]

Dry Aged Steak

What makes the steaks at the steak house so darn good? Well, there are a few things starting with the beef.  Most steak houses buy Prime beef which has a lot of marbling, or fat dispersed within the muscles tissue.  Prime beef is not easy to come by for the regular consumer, but you can […]

Five-Spice Beef Stir-Fry

There was a cooking program that I used to love called Simply Magic. It is an Australian cooking show presented by Kylie Kwong and it features Chinese food.  Her recipes are healthy, made with fresh ingredients, and they are attainable in a home kitchen.  Needless to say… I adore her.  It was while watching her […]

Shredded Beef Sliders with Carrot Apple Slaw

I think the best way to cook a beef roast is in the slow cooker. I love that I can spend about ten minutes puttering in the kitchen, then I sit back for eight hours and, as if by magic, I have a pot of juicy, tender, wonderfully flavorful beef.  Speaking of beef, this is […]

It would be fair to say we are a beef eating family. So, when Foodbuzz sent me an email about an opportunity to pair up with the Texas Beef Council* to share some fun recipes featuring lean beef I found it very hard to say no.  With that said, over the next few weeks I […]

Valentine’s Day is coming. We do not really celebrate Valentine’s Day here at Casa Shenanigans.  No heart shaped boxes of candy, no bunches of wilted grocery store roses, and no adult-sized footie pajamas in the mail.  No, we do not celebrate with silly tokens.  We celebrate with food.  Sometimes we go out, but more often […]
