  1. I might start liking beer πŸ˜‚

    Yep, that’s my sis πŸ’›

    I wanted to have recipes that are beyond my capabilities in the truck and be able to learn from my sis as well.. She could be a chef, in my opinion.. What a better way to do that and be able to share that knowledge than on a food blog ? πŸ‘

    You can find her intro to the blog in response challenges under “cooking something up”. She just started posting and already has several recipes up..

    I added new categories to accommodate for a better table of contents in the menu…

    You’re going to enjoy her Jessica and she’s nicer than me πŸ˜‚

    Thanks sis for answering the stout question.. πŸ’›


    1. I bet you could make a vegan version of this Jessica..
      When I give this one a whirl, I won’t be putting jalapeΓ±os in it.. I’m too wimpy.. I don’t know what choc stout either, but I’m thinking chocolate beer maybe ?
      Sis ? What is that stout stuff ?

      1. Chocolate Stout is a bittersweet, heavy ale.
        Young’s Double Chocolate Stout is my personal favorite for flavor and almost creamy feel. The chocolate flavor undertones taste great with chili peppers.
