Help me welcome my husband, Jason, today. This isn’t his first time writing for the Saucy Dipper, but it is one of the best things he’s made yet.
Here’s a nice little beer cheese bread recipe I stole from Alton Brown of Good Eats (see the original recipe). Here’s how I made it, some photos, and some other notes.
A couple of items:
First, I went off book a little and substituted 1/2 teaspoon of dry dill for 1 tsp of fresh dill. This may have dried things out a bit.
Second, I used Belgian Ale. It has a pretty strong flavor to begin with, and then mixing it into cheese bread takes that flavor to another level – this bread tastes a lot like beer. If you want a milder, more bread flavor, I’d suggest using a mild light beer. (more…)
Another wonderful Dipstock dip creation and guest post from my husband, Jason. If I play my cards right, maybe I can stop calling him a guest and make him a regular Saucy Dipper contributor. Help me entice the husband by reading his delightful post and peppering him with compliments in the comments. We’ll both love you for it. 😉
First, a little disclosure: I’m a big fan of the cheesy, corny, science-heavy cooking show Good Eats. Alton Brown has taught me a lot about cooking and inspired me to try dozens of recipes I wouldn’t have bothered with in the past.
Brown has also given me the confidence to freelance — to go off script with most recipes. What started out as a simple and somewhat precise spinach artichoke dip recipe turned into a I-just-got-back-from-the-gym-and-damn-it-I-want-me-some-dip recipe. (more…)
Today, I have a very special guest post from my husband, Jason Lancaster. Jason is a fantastic cook, a Online Marketing guy, a Denver Nuggets fan, AND a fan of Alton Brown. He agreed to help me out with some of the Dipstock dip making this week, and I’m oh-so-grateful. Seven dips is a lot of work for one person! Help me in welcoming Jason to the Saucy Dipper.
Tapenade, for those who may not know, is a nice dip for crackers and toasted bread, but it also plays very nicely with pork. Today, I’m going to tell you AND show you how to make some in about 10 minutes. (more…)
