Beer Cheese Bread Recipe – For Dipping

Beer Cheese Bread Recipe – For Dipping 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...

A St. Paddy’s Day Feast: Corned Beef Dip and Soup

A St. Paddy’s Day Feast: Corned Beef Dip and Soup I’m not particularly crazy about St. Patrick’s Day. I mean, the party is nice, but the food…well, the food is nothing special. At least that’s what I thought until I discovered corned beef. Oh, corned beef. You delicious, salty meat, you. Where have you been all my life? After browsing around the web and finding a Reuben dip on A Farm Girl’s Dabbles and a variety of...

Shrimp Deserves Sauce, You Deserve Beer

Shrimp Deserves Sauce, You Deserve Beer Keeping with the beer-inspired sauce and dip theme for the upcoming Great American Beer Festival, I have yet another beer recipe to share. I’m super excited about this beer and butter sauce, because it’s an easy one (my favorite kind) and it has a lot of kick…unexpected kick, in fact, thanks to a fortunate mistake.You see, I mistakenly grabbed steak rub instead of grabbing pepper. Since...

Beer Me, Colorado. I’m Hungry for Dip.

Beer Me, Colorado. I’m Hungry for Dip. Every year since 1982 the Great American Beer Festival has given Coloradoans and visitors a chance to sample thousands of brews.  I was lucky enough to attend a few years back, and I sampled my fair share. I also stood in the friggin’ long lines for the bathroom. You know you’ll be drinking great beer, but nothing prepares you for that sea of port-o-potties.To help get this year’s...

New York City Dipping and Saucing

New York City Dipping and Saucing When you tell someone that you will be visiting New York City, you can count on hearing this: “Oh, I know this great restaurant in [enter Manhattan neighborhood name here]. You have to go. They have the best [name a comfort food or obscure type of fusion here] and the best [cocktail type here] I’ve ever had.” Jason (my husband) and I travel in a way that’s not-so-ordinary. Our jobs...

How to Host Your Own Dip Party

How to Host Your Own Dip Party We’ve all been to dinner parties. Lunchtime potlucks are pretty common. A themed cocktail event is also a frequent occurrence. Now, how many dip parties have you been too? Probably not very many. But wouldn’t you like to go to a dip party? I know I do. At a dip party I don’t have to commit to an entire entree. I get to taste all kinds of new foods. I learn about different recipes and...

A Fine Place to Dip. Iowa, You Rock.

A Fine Place to Dip. Iowa, You Rock. I recently visited family in Iowa and forced them to endure my Saucy Dippiness. I don’t think they minded, though. At least I saw them take seconds and willingly take leftovers home, which leads me to believe they enjoyed themselves. But then again, my mom and nephew did a lot of the cooking, so they probably weren’t as scared as they could’ve been. Three things made this day a special...

Uncle Phil’s Saucy Bacon Appetizer

Uncle Phil’s Saucy Bacon Appetizer Nope, not my Uncle Phil. This one belongs to my good friend and fellow Dipstock attendee, Katie. Phil and Katie reign from the foodie nation of Wisconsin…turns out those folks know good cheese, good brats, and good saucy bacon appetizers. Katie made Uncle Phil’s bacon wrapped water chestnut recipe for last week’s event. It was a huge hit for more reasons than one–the most important...

Saucing and Dipping in More Ways than One

Saucing and Dipping in More Ways than One Sure, you think of sauces and dips and you think of a marinara sauce and a seven-layer dip, but that’s not what it has to mean all the time. At least it doesn’t to me, as evident in one of the items featured at my personal Dipstock “dip off” party last weekend. I decided to take saucing and dipping one step further with a little bit of Mexican beer (sauce) and a couple of spicy...
