Looking back, I haven’t made a cocktail to share with you in a while. This summer it’s been all about Pinot Gris, Viognier and of course my usual Michigan IPA’s. I’ve also made David’s summer by getting into Belgian style beer, something which I have never liked before and am now wondering how that was […]

I have to agree with Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito, “Curd is an ugly word for a delicious dessert”. As I’ve said in my lemon curd post, it is very versatile and can be used for a variety of things. This curd is smooth and tangy and is absolutely divine on top of the golden brown […]
