Champagne-Mushroom Crostini with Chèvre

post icon

This appetizer will lend an air of sophistication to your cocktail party, even though it is super easy to make. Anything with this many foreign words in it has to be good, right?

I was inspired to create this recipe because I had a little bit of leftover champagne that was about to go flat. But you could easily use a dry white wine instead if you didn’t have any bubbly on hand.

For mushrooms, … Read more

Jack Daniel’s Serves Up Ready-to-Eat Meat

Jack Daniel’s is now serving up some meat to go with that shot of whiskey.

Ready-made meals like baby back ribs, barbecue pulled pork and pork loin featuring Jack Daniel’s No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey are making their way to a grocery store near you.

The company has been making marinades, sauces and mustards for a while, so prepared food was the next move.

Sounds good. Ribs, anyone?

Beer Can Chicken

Since the weather is heating up, it’s time to do some cooking outdoors! Beer Can Chicken is an easy way to cook a whole chicken on the grill while keeping it moist and flavorful.

Before getting started, make sure that your grill can accommodate the chicken — since the chicken will have to cook while it is upright and the lid will have to be closed. You can always use a smaller/larger bird, depending on … Read more

Love Potion #9 Creamy Strawberry Tart

post icon

CMSC Spirits is releasing a new spirit in May — Love Potion #9. They sent over a little sample, which inspired me to create a new dessert. The tropical-fruit-flavored liqueur is made with sugar cane alcohol (instead of grain alcohol), which made me think strawberry tart!

It’s a light and refreshing dessert, with the mascarpone adding creaminess without turning the dish into something heavy or sticky-sweet. Oh, and it’s super easy!

 

Ingredients

8 oz mascarpone … Read more

Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes

Even though St. Patrick’s Day is over, it’s time again to whip out the Guinness, Baileys and Jameson’s whiskey and turn them into delicious cupcakes!

The Irish Car Bomb is a well-known (although not very tactfully named) drink consisting of a layered shot of Jameson’s and Bailey’s dropped in a ¾ full glass of Guinness and chugged like crazy. (Don’t let it sit; curdled Bailey’s in your beer is not an appetizing sight.)

Well, here … Read more

Leftover Turkey Vodka Marinara

post icon

I had so much turkey left over after Thanksgiving that I froze a great deal of it for use in future recipes.

Of all my leftover turkey cooking adventures, this simple recipe is my favorite one so far.

If you managed to escape Thanksgiving and Christmas without mountains of leftover turkey, you can use chicken or vegetables instead.

This is one of those sauces that actually tastes much better after sitting in the fridge overnight.… Read more
