It is finally spring (sorta) here in Indiana. And by spring I mean 70° one day and 40° the next. I love sitting outside with the sun on my face, a cold beer in my hand, a balmy breeze blowing the meat scented grill smoke my way. Should be a cologne that smells like grilling [...]The post Peach Lambic Pork Chops appeared first on He Cooks She Cooks.
Happy March! Happy almost spring! Happy close enough to St. Patrick’s Day to say s’lainte but also caution against green beer. JUST DON’T DO IT MAN! Drink a Guinness or Smithwick’s instead. And while we are at it happy “oops this might be too late for you to make and have on Sunday but come on why do [...]The post Bock Beer Brined Corned Beef appeared first on He Cook
As you may have already figured out, our goal in life is to get beer into damn near everything we cook, grill, bake, smoke, or burn. This of course includes some off the wall experiments like this one, that actually freaking worked. This idea was kinda based on another recipe we recently created for The [...]The post Beer Cured Bacon appeared first on He Cooks She Cooks.
Today used to be one of my favorite days of the year. I won’t bore you with the story as it has already been told here, but suffice to say it still would be one of my favorite days of the year if I wasn’t currently saving my weekly caloric intake for beer now instead [...]The post Farmhouse Ale Beer Beignets appeared first on He Cooks She Cooks.
Side dishes he exclaimed one day. Wait I am getting ahead of myself so let us back up… One day Heather and I were trying to figure out what in the freak we want to make. Part of that process involves how many different projects can we incorporate in one dish because we are freaking [...]The post Beer Battered Onion Rings appeared first on He Cooks She Cooks.
Happy 2013! Wow. Did I just say that? 2013? Time has zoomed by lately. It feels like we went from picking tomatoes to shoveling snow. But It is quite alright. Because while Jeff is enjoying his new snow blower, I am already spending countless hours perusing the pages of the copious amounts of seed catalogs [...]The post Beef and Stout Pot Pie with Flaky Crust appeared first on He Cooks She Cooks.
Besides being raging beeralohics who consume beer in damn near every dish we make we also have a small addiction to our smoker. Our friends would say it is purely awesome because they know at least once a week there will be something that was smoked overnight and ready for them to devour. Recently we [...]The post Smoked and Porter Braised Beef Sandwiches appeared first on He Cooks She Cooks.
Well fall is in the air. Literally in the air. I just got wacked in the face with a bunch of wet leaves on my way back from the grocery store and it was not enjoyable to say the least. Seems like every season I get antsy for the next. In summer when I am [...]The post Beer Caramel Corn with Pretzels & Pecans oh my! appeared first on He Cooks She Cooks.
Everyone has their death row meal and this is the exact meal I want to be served. If you are unfamiliar with the concept of a death row meal it is very simple. It is the last meal you would be served before being executed. I know grisly thing to think about but lot freaking [...]The post Sarmale Simmered in Octoberfest Beer (Stuffed Cabbage Rolls) appeared first on He Cooks She Cooks.
So I got absolutely nothing that Heather has not already covered in previous posts. Life is pretty much boring for us. This recipe requires a special cut of beef ribs called flanken. The easiest way to find them is head down to your local Asian market and great chance you will find them there. The [...]The post asian inspired lager marinade for beef ribs appeared first on He Cooks She Cooks.
Life can be so sobering sometimes. Among other family sadness this past week, Jeff and I bid Godspeed to our oddball little kitty Eva. She was about 197 years old and it was time but that didn’t make it any easier. She was always there when we needed her the most – even if it [...]The post Horseradish Meatballs Braised in Beer appeared first on He Cooks She Cooks.
Last post you got a good garden update but that is not all we have been up to because we still have the brewing front. We had finally filled up the four taps in the kegerator with homebrew only to have our awesome friends come over and promptly destroy the Belgian keg. All good [...]The post IPA Meatloaf appeared first on He Cooks She Cooks.

Ah, summer. What power you have to make us suffer and like it. - Russell Baker Isn’t THAT the truth. These Midwest temperatures have been INSANE! I noticed that Jeff mentioned about our power going out the weekend before 4th of July for FIVE excruciatingly hot days. But it was not just over 90° but [...]The post Shrimp Mozambique. Or How to Stay Cool w/Spicy Shrimp & Cold Beer appeared
We were doing so awesome about posting 1-2x a week and then bam we were forced to stop. This time it was not laziness like normal but rather we took a pounding in the storm last weekend. House and everyone is safe and sound but we lost power for five days in 90 plus degree [...]The post Beer Battered Chicken Tenders appeared first on He Cooks She Cooks.
Just a friendly reminder you still have time left to try and win a brand new ice cream maker. See http://hecooksshecooks.com/desserts/black-and-tan-ice-cream/ for details. In fact do not waste your comments on this recipe. So for those are still here hanging out and wanting to know how to do something besides make ice cream well then [...]
I have to say. This “job” we have. The one where we take tasty beer and mesh it with tasty food and make something even better. Even tastier? It is a TOUGH JOB! Like for instance, when I set out to create this Black and Tan Ice Cream, I had to pick the right beer [...]
Arroz con pollo is simply a Spanish dish meaning chicken with rice but it cooler to say. Plus it is an easy dish to throw some beer in there and make that chicken drunkingly happy. We played around with a couple beer styles and found some styles really killed the dish because of the other [...]
Hello Spring. I have missed you. Last time I checked in I was whining over the “in-my-mind” unseasonably cold temperatures in May. IN MAY! How DARE you Mother Nature!? And even tho Jeff continued to remind me that “That is what SPRING in the Midwest is hon!” I refused to believe. Or listen. Which is [...]
Well this might be a first….two updates within a week’s span. The best part is we have been on a tear creating new beer centric dishes and the better part more beer is being consumed. Heck we have even took the insane step and converted an old freezer into a four tap (possibly six) keg [...]
Spring. You crazy! The first day of Spring here in Northern Indiana gave us a beautiful 87° day. It was awesome and while I planned our garden, Jeff was headed to hike the Appalachians and this amazing weather would be perfect for him and I alike. Instead the temperature dropped and it rained and our [...]
IPA is probably one of my favorite beers to use in cooking because it compliments spicy food perfectly. As you have figured out I love my spicy food too. Oh yeah many of you were asking what I got Heather for Valentine’s Day. Well it follows the annual theme of creepy garden gnomes. It is [...]
Just to get everyone off my butt right now…this is not chili and this is not mac and cheese. This is the combination of both worlds in one awesome calorie laden dish. Besides that is also cheap to make which is even better given I blew all my money on an awesome Valentine’s Day present [...]
Welcome to February 2012. This time last year we were experiencing serious foodie blogger meltdown. I won’t get into it, but we decided to step away for a while. For our sanity and for YOUR safety. But lately we found our passion again. Ironically it was in a bottle marked BEER. So we decided now [...]
Hello fellow visitor this is a blast from the past blogger signing in. Yes I know we stopped and you probably missed the awesomeness we posted but well being totally honest we got lazy. Ok lazy is probably the wrong word because we have been busy just not blogging busy. So I am not going [...]
For those of you that miss us. All ONE of you… Just wanted to let you know we will be back. Too much of this and not enough of that burned us out and we needed to rethink our strategy. Which loosely translated means sat around the fire pit and drank some beer and acted [...]

Slainte’! Which is Gaelic for “sure has been a long time since I have posted anything at all because even tho I have a plethora of back-logged goodies to share with you the burn out was pretty bad but hope you are well!” Or something to that effect. I already explained my lack of desire [...]
So where or where did we go? Let us just call it a place called burnoutville.

While everyone was eating turkey and the normal stuffing we were enjoying this for thanksgiving. We had planned on making this just for lunch and then dragging leftovers over to parent’s house for dinner. However; the big problem was the parents were sick so no thanksgiving meal for us (which is ok in my book [...]
Hi there! Miss me? It has been a couple of weeks huh? Well like Jeff said we have been pretty busy with a few projects we have in the works. And to be honest. I was just plain burnt out. Six weeks of over doing our cooking-ability for that FoodBuzz competition really wiped me/us. Wow, [...]
It has came to my attention that we are serious slackers. Honestly though we have a lot of cool stuff in the works so we have been putting all our energy and focus into those. Yes they involve food and more importantly they involve large and I mean annoying the recycling guy with massive amounts [...]
Everyone has a favorite holiday. For most that holiday is rapidly approaching in the form of a jolly fat man dressed in red with a bag of toys. Mine comes in the form of the walking dead dressed in rags with a bag of candy. Ah yes – Halloween. All Hallows eve. The day when [...]
This is the time of year when witches cast magic spells and the walking dead mingle among the living. It is a time for delicious treats, and tricky TRICKS. One of the nastiest tricksters of them all, is the pumpkin. Seemingly innocent, these burnt hue evil doers wreck havoc on your neighbors porches, in your [...]
