Mezcal Fizz

Ilegal Mezcal has a beautifully balanced profile, with a mouth full of agave and a hint of smoke.
Handcrafted in small batches by fourth-generation mezcaleros, our Joven, Reposado, and Añejo mezcals are all made with perfectly ripe, sustainable Espadín agave, double distilled in the Santiago Matatlan Valley of Oaxaca, Mexico.

Tennessee Sour

This is a very refreshing drink for the summertime. Don’t be scared away by the whiskey, you can hardly detect it. This is a pretty light drink since there is twice as much sour as alcohol, which means you can have a refill too.

Long Island Ice Tea

These are dangerous because they taste just like a refreshing lemon ice tea, but they are packed with an interesting combination of spirits. The fresh sour mix (see my recipe) is what makes this cocktail irresistible

Hickory Smoked St. Louis Ribs

Ribs are such a treat when they are cooked slowly first and then finished on the grill. I use an electric smoker set at 225 degrees to cook the spice-rubbed racks for a couple of hours. You can use St. Louis, Arkansas, or Baby Back according to your preference.

Mifroma Swiss Raclette

I was fortunate enough to travel to Switzerland when I was young, and I quickly discovered the fantastic cheese dishes that feature the fantastic mountain cheeses made locally.  Raclette was one of those dishes, which incorporated a plate of meats and vegetables with...

Cinco de Mayo Feast

I love Mexican food, and this recipe I developed for tacos based on a traditional Mexican recipe has always been a favorite.  The pork is flavorful without being too spicy.  The pork chorizo can be made ahead and refrigerated for a few days…it’s even better...

420 Special: Baroque for Stoners

Controversy and drama have revolved around Marijuana/Cannabis in the USA since the 1920s when cheap hemp oil products first came into competition with "Big Oil" as it was, building around Henry Ford's Model-T and Rudolph Diesel's engine for which he intended to use...

Café Spice Naan Toasties

I do enjoy spicy food, so I have always loved Indian food. One of the classic dishes that you will find on just about any Indian Restaurant Menu is Tikka Masala, which is made with chicken cooked in the tandoor oven with a spicy curry sauce with tomato.

Numi Drinking Chocolate with Porter’s Peanut Butter Whiskey and Finger Licking Dutch Stroopwafels

I am an avid cyclist, and I love stroopwafels because they are a portable snack that has some calories (not too much only about 120 calories each) that can be consumed while riding the bike. For this reason, stroopwafels are a “thing” in the cycling community. I even seem to recall that one of the big brands even sponsors the Cyclocross racing series in the Netherlands, which is a big-time sport there.

Corned Beef Hash Breakfast

I love corned beef hash and eggs for breakfast, it’s a real treat. Ever since I decided to make it from scratch, I have ruined myself forever. I always use the leftovers from corned beef and cabbage dinner to make this hearty breakfast.

St. Patrick’s Easy Corned Beef and Cabbage

There is nothing more Irish to me than corned beef and cabbage. My Wife’s Father Joe was Irish, so this type of dinner wasn’t just for St. Patrick’s Day it was a frequent meal. Look for a brisket that comes with a spice packet. I add some additional spices and braise the beef in Guinness Stout. I usually try to make a little more than I need for dinner so that I can use the leftovers to make corned beef hash. It takes around 3 hours of total cooking so plan accordingly.

St. Patrick’s Special: Shepherd’s Pie

My Wife’s Father was part of an Irish family, and we couldn’t let a St. Patrick’s Day pass without raising a glass to the family memories. When I think of classic Irish recipes, Shepherd’s Pie always comes to mind. There are many variations of this recipe, which is traditionally made with leftover roast lamb.

Celebrating Women’s History Month

Women’s History Month first came to be as a national celebration in 1982 though the first celebration was Women’s History Week. A few years later, it expanded into a full month of honoring women! I may be a man programming a women's playlist, but my reverence for the...
