There aren’t many things that says “late summer” better than fresh, ripe, juicy tomatoes. Usually there’s an abundance of them. Whether you grow them yourself or get a good deal on them at the grocery store or farmer’s market, they are bound to show up on your kitchen counter. Try making something new with them…

The Magical Fruit

You might be inclined to think I’m posting a baked bean recipe because the Fourth of July is near. You might be right. But only kinda. These baked beans are a family tradition, and not just for summer. My family has them for every holiday imaginable. Yes, we eat baked beans for Thanksgiving. And now…

Clove & Nut Brown Ale Pulled Pork

Editor’s Note: Below is the column as it appeared on DrinkingCraft.com. Attention apartment dwellers, busy people and lovers of pork! With warm weather typically comes grilling.

There are a few things that people consider “summer foods” or perfect for picnics and barbecues that my family has completely mastered.

Ohio and hot dogs sort of go hand-in-hand for me. I went to Ohio University and there was this great little restaurant called O’Betty’s. They had the most fun hot dogs with the best fries. It was always my favorite drunk food choice and the place I’d take visiting friends. (They even have a hot…

Blackout Shake

I don’t think it’s any secret that I’m partial to Great Lakes Brewing Company. Not just because it’s in Cleveland (though that doesn’t hurt) but because it’s awesome. I’m big into porters and stouts and I can’t say enough about the Edmund Fitzgerald Porter and the Blackout Stout. So this week on DrinkingCraft.com, I whip…

I know, I know. Labor Day means the end of summer. But I’m pretty sure you can have hot dogs whenever the hell you want. I’m kind of obsessed with hot dogs. Side note and unsponsored plug for a place I really love: there’s a great hot dog place in Philly on 17th street called…
