Beau’s All Natural Belgian Pale Ale Meets My Makeshift Lasagna

So once again I found myself home alone with my son – now about 9 1/2 months old.  He had just gone down for a nap,  and instead of being a normal person and taking some time to relax, I decided to use what’s lying around in the fridge and cupboard to roll out some […]

Alley Kat – A Fire Breathing Double IPA from Edmonton, Who Would Have Thought!

So my friend Ryan and I – who moved to Calgary several years back – decided to begin trading beer through the mail.  As you might be aware (or not), it can be quite difficult getting beer from outside of Quebec; when you are in Quebec that is.  Really, our only choices here are either […]

Clever Beef Tenderloin and the Rich Velvet Pistoles

As I mentioned in my previous post, we have been on a bit of a mission to use all the food we have around the house to make our meals.  It’s a rather fun challenge for me as I enjoy cooking immensely. In my opinion, the most creatively satisfying meal you can make is one […]
