But Can Your Beer Can Chicken Rack Do This?

Is there anything better than a good beer can chicken from the grill? Slowly cooked and full of flavor? I’d argue that the only thing better is a perfectly grilled steak but now we’re talking apples and oranges (or steak and chicken…). Beer can chicken is such a simple dish to make… all you need is a good rub, a…

Food and Drink, Kristens Kitchen By January 10, 2016 Tags: , , , , 5 Comments

Chocolate Crack Recipe Apparently I like sweets with the word “crack” in it. First there was McQuilkin’s Crack aka Pecan Chewies. I love my best friend’s Grandmother’s Crack which, ironically, is a whole lot like this recipe minus the chocolate. But hey – adding chocolate to anything pretty much escalates it to the uber-crack status, doesn’t it? The oldest brought…

We love to cook and the Rooster loves to grill. I like to grill too, but for the most part leave it to him. I know a lot of people prefer to get their grilled food from somewhere like Francisca Restaurant, but my husband is such a ‘do it yourself’ kind of guy. I figure the poor guy has enough…

Nikki is another one of my favorite Twitter success “stories”. She and I share a love of tech, social and food! We seem to run into each other at functions that involve food more than anywhere else and I think that’s a whole lotta awesome.

It’s hard when you’re a family with two working spouses to not just put dinner on the table before the stroke of midnight, but also a dinner that isn’t created by punching buttons on a microwave or hearing the words “pull up to the 2nd window”.
