Beer Can Chicken Roasting Rack & Vegetable Spikes

But Can Your Beer Can Chicken Rack Do This?

Latest, Reviews and Giveaways By August 20, 2017 Tags: , , , 1 Comment

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…

No More Grilling in the Dark! While the Boss may be Dancin’ in the Dark, right now the Rooster is grillin’ in the dark LIKE a boss and not having a single issue with the “is it really done??” conundrum that can come with late night grilling. Let’s face it, in an ideal world we’d have dinner over and done…

Making Apple Smoked Piggy Pops with Cave Tool Smoker Box One of the big drawbacks of winter is that we do not grill out nearly as much as we do in the warmer weather. Now that it’s March, we’re slowly getting back into grilling out at least once, if not twice, a week. Pretty soon we’ll be back at it at…


Kristen’s Kitchen: Chocolate Crack

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…

Big Bang Brownies Is there anything better than a soft, warm brownie? Unless you just don’t like chocolate, I don’t know anyone who can’t resist a good, homemade brownie. Before I found this recipe and fine-tuned it, whenever I would want brownies, I would have to go to the store for a box of Betty Crocker. The only bad thing…

Memorial Day weekend is finally here. I love this weekend because it means that another school year is almost done and that a couple of months of a relaxed schedule are right in front of us. I am a pretty structured person when it comes to our routine (you have to be with 5 people in the family) but even…


Daukas Diner: Skillet Steak

We are a self-proclaimed foodie family. The Rooster and I love to cook and while we don’t always have the time during the week, the weekends are usually reserved for trying new things.  The girls don’t always like what we fix but we insist they at least try it.. I’m not a short order cook and only here in this…
