    People ask how our wedding went. Our wedding was absolutely beautiful and wonderful, but let's say there were a few exciting hiccups (nothing ever goes quite as planned)!
    We got married on a beautiful historic venue on the San Antonio Riverwalk. Since we had an outdoor gazebo garden for the ceremony, we held our breaths the week prior as the weather forecast for Monday through Friday predicted (and rained) nothing but constant thunderstorms!
    Luckily Saturday the gorgeous day couldn't have been more perfect for the ceremony. We held cocktail hour (featuring 312 beer from the local Chicago...

    Shopping at Costco can feel like a nightmare if you're not equipped with a list, and it's all too easy to get side-tracked if you don't come prepared. I asked a few members to name their go-to Costco groceries that bring on the flavor (without breaking the bank). Just remember: never go into Costco hungry, otherwise you're doomed to stock up on the craziest six-pack of something you don't need, like Fruit Roll-Ups.

    Orgeat, the pale, milky-white almond syrup used to add nuttiness to tiki drinks like the classic Mai Tai, gets a modern-day makeover in this recipe from the Merchant in Madison, Wisconsin. Inspired by Dave Arnold's Any Nut Orgeat in Liquid Intelligence , Merchant introduces shelled, unsalted pistachios to the equation.
    "Pistachios add a different complexity and flavor to the syrup," says Merchant bar manager Thor Messer. "Almonds are great, but it's fun to mix it up with a different nut."

    How to Use Citric Acid in Cocktails

    2 years ago - By Imbibe Magazine

    Citric acid, the same acid found in lemon juice, is one of those ubiquitous ingredients on food and drink labels, and lately, it's also been popping up in cocktails as bartenders use it to mimic the flavor of citrus. At Otaku Ramen in Nashville, bartender and partner Ben Clemons says citric acid is especially useful in batched cocktails. "Punches and large-format cocktails are only good for a few hours because fresh juice, just like anything else 'living,' begins to go bad the moment it's juiced," he says. "Citric acid allows you to balance sour with sweet without using organic...

    You know how sometimes, you think you're not really all that big on a particular food and have no problem staying away from said food for months and even years on end. But then, for some reason, you get hit by a very sudden and uncontrollable craving for said food and you just can't seem to get over it, no matter how many times you give in to said craving.
    Lately, I've have that happen to me a lot... First, it was with peanuts, and now I appear to be going trough a similar phase with chickpeas. I'd forgotten just how much I LOVE 'em little half crunchy, half creamy, nutty legumes. Before...

    It was impossible to resist going back to our source of a few days ago for some more blog fodder. How could I resist a title like Unfired Foods and Hygienic Dietetics for Prophylactic Feeding and Therapeutic Feeding? As its title suggests, the book promoted raw food as a healthy eating option, and it included a significant number of recipes as well as several menus. But before we get to the details, please enjoy one of the front pages, which contained a mission statement of sorts:

    Lately I've been thinking, I need more wraps in my life! I rarely make them and that needs to change. They are basically a big giant taco and I'm obsessed with tacos so they should be a regular on my menu. This Greek Chicken and Hummus Wrap is so easy to make yet it's so incredibly flavorful and delicious! I opted to go with a homemade hummus because I always have everything on hand to make hummus, but if you are looking to make these quicker you can definitely just go with your favorite store-bought hummus. Then if you are wanting to go the other route and do everything from scratch you...

    I was never much of a comic book reader as a kid, but I did love Garfield. As a chubby, lazy kid with a cynical sense of humor, perhaps I could relate to him on some level. Or maybe it was because we shared the same favorite food: Lasagna. It was, and still is, one of my favorite meals.

    Unfortunately, lasagna isn't one of those meals you make for one, or even two, so it hasn't been on the menu much since I moved away from home. Determined to make a more compact version, I tried a couple different approaches including making it in a loaf pan, but these individual rolls strike the perfect...
