more Christmas dinner – potatoes!

This year, I’ve really enjoyed the Christmas or winter brews that are available.  I’ve always been partial to English ales, and Ridgeway does a series of ales each year for Christmas that are great. I first had a Insanely Bad Elf, which was a nice red ale with a bit of spice.  I also had ... Read More »

Christmas beef wellington

sonic-inspired breakfast (and Christmas countdown)

It’s now 24 days until Christmas, and my early present is I got a new job!  Yea! I may be nuts, but I kind of like the Sonic commercials.  The latest breakfast treat is their sausage biscuit dippers.  I decided to do my own version, which I call Dunkers, to make sure I don’t infringe ...
