Good morning you hungry travellers you!
I hope that your long weekend was as fantabulous as mine was! I also hope that you did not get stuck in traffic, preventing you from making delicious grilled meals at home or the cottage or anywhere in between!
I visited Kempenfest, a local tradition and a great place to find one of a kind art, crafts and more importantly food. I met someone with the most amazing sauces and marinades for grilling. The product is called Shmeer and is available in a couple of local retail locations, and online. My goodness was it ever good! Tried the Honey Brown Lager, sweet and tangy, and the Sweet and Sour Stout, very pineapple-y, and my favourite of all the Jerk Porter! Beautiful beginning, gives you a kick and then leaves with a pleasant heat and most amazing after taste. (I can’t wait for the leftovers at lunch today)
So I guess you want a recipe then? I mean I am talking all about this stuff, but you wanna know what I did right?
Did I mention how good this was? The scent was amazing, even the cats were wandering around sniffing and asking for some! After supper we were so satisfied and content with that finish, the husband and I were seriously just sitting there and randomly “mmmmhhhhhh”-ing! SERIOUSLY! I can’t wait to try the other bottle that we got, the Chipotle Dark Ale! I think I want to do ribs or a roast with this one!

Basically I saw this and said the words Stout & Chocolate Cheesecake With Candied Bacon to my husband, the Baron of Baking. Stunned, he stopped everything and slowly turned to me. “Yes” was all he said.View Details
With Roasted Potatoes
Glazed carrots and roasted potatoes were both always on the menu when it came to any major family holiday meal. These dishes were prepared in the same way every time and passed down from mother to daughter for at least four generations. Today I am going to share with you a new take on the classic Roasted Carrots, and tell you the secret (as per my mother’s mother) to the perfect Roasted Potato.View Details
