Pub Style Beer Cheese Dip with Fresh Pretzel Bread!

We saved the best for last on this fabulous double dippin’ Friday! It’s hard to tell which was better, the beer infused cheese dip or the deliciously fresh pretzel bread, but when the two are combined, an overwhelming sense of peace warms the soul – and then comes the urge to grab the rest and run….

Buffalo Sausage Bites with Red Pepper Salsa and Charred Broccoli!

Today’s Cook It Local! dish is wonderfully simple but with some amazing flavor combinations.  Don’t let the buffalo sausage turn you off, it is wonderful, full of flavor and so addictive that we almost ate it all before the pasta was finished cooking.  Buffalo is a lean meat, high in protein and low in fat….

Fried Banana Splits!

Yesterday was National Ice Cream Day and July is National Ice Cream Month!  We celebrated with homemade bourbon ice cream (with a butterscotch swirl) and deep fried cookie encrusted bananas!  We had never made ice cream before.  We don’t own an ice cream machine and we were kind of worried that it would be difficult…
