Ever go to your local Mexican restaurant and order that small bowl of liquid white cheese... ah Queso dip... pretty good stuff even if it is a $2 rip off... Ever wish you could have some at home to go with your tortilla chips? Ever waste you money on all those so called "queso dips" by tostitos or some Mexican sounding brand in your local grocer's deli? I've spend years melting cheeses, trying dips, and NOTHING could even come close to replicating what you can find at the restaurant. It was like
Well, I just had to make this one... I've tried a lot of different beers, and the experience has been rewarding and punishing at the same time. There are some beers out there that just make me question some peoples taste buds... as nasty as they are, I don't know how they make sales... and to be fair, I'm leaving out cheap beers... you wont find PBR, Milwaukee's Best, or Keystone on this list.

I really don't know how this beer became so popular. Granted its one of the two mos
Bourbon is a magical liquid. It's a true cure for the common cold, it cures tooth aches, and it helps prevent terminal aliments such as heart disease and stroke. It marinades ribs and steaks and can create various desserts. It also tastes good straight and can be enjoyed mixed in several ways.
I recently came across this bourbon in the past couple months. It's very woody and dry. Its a little harsher to drink straight than other bourbons, but its distinct taste puts it at 5, knocking of
I've found that Dark Beer is only for a few people. Amongst the majority of American beer consumers, a lot of them do not like the harsher taste of Porters and Black Lagers. I guess the best way to put it is: If you like you're coffee black, then you might like dark beer. Anyways here are my top five personal favorites.
Sierra Nevada Porter is probably the most bitter out of my top five. It will definitely put some hair on your chest. Its very thick and creamy.
Sam Adams Honey Port
I just thought I'd make my personal favorite Top 5 beer lists, that excludes the specialty types.
Amber Beer Top 5
Its a great tasting wheat ale that oddly enough, goes well with a slice of orange. Its very smooth and not too strong for those that stay away from the more potent type. I recommend all of its seasonal brews as well. (especially the pumpkin ale)
Sierra Nevada is a little stronger than other beers that are not dark, but it has a very pleasant taste that is rich with
So the State of Alabama finally repealed one of the most stupid laws in history. For the longest time there has been a ban on beer that contains more than 6% alcohol by content. There was no real point to this law as anyone could go to the liquor store and pick up some 100 proof products. Now that Alabama has freed the hops we have access to specialty beers we never could have before. I've been trying as many as I could the past few weeks and I've found a few worth mentioning.
I came across this gem at a gas station last week. I thought it was some kind of special can celebration at first, but realized if that would have been the case, it would have been that classic bland white can I remembered as a child during the 80s.
Pepsi-Cola Throwback actually refers to the recipe. The original version before the times of High Fructose Corn Syrup. This one is made with sugar, like it was meant to be.
Pepsi has had some complete debacles over the past decade. Pepsi Twist whi
Here is a bourbon marinade thats good for just about anything. It works great on pork baby back ribs.
1/2 cup bourbon
1/4 cup soy Sauce
1/4 cup Dijon Mustard
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 small onion, chopped fine
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
A splash of Worcestershire Sauce
Again, measurements are only suggested as a guide to go by. Even this one is a modified version of one I found. I always up the dosage of alcohol. You always have to take into account how much meat yo
This is a recipe I found online, with a few personal modifications. Whether you like Guinness Beer or not really isn't the issue. This makes some good tasting Ribeyes.
For this you will need:
1 USDA Choice/Prime Ribeye steak
2 garlic cloves
1 ounce soy sauce
1 tablespoon Vidalia onion
1 teaspoon shallots
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon fresh tarragon
1/4 teaspoon parsley
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
I got back from Ohio last night. My mom had a Remembrance Party in honor of my dad this last weekend. It was a really nice time. I'm glad I got to see so many people that knew my dad and talk to them about how he was a positive and/or great influence in their lives. The party was a bbq party too. My younger brother smoked 30 pounds of pulled pork and 20 pounds of bbq beef. I helped with the process. It was a great time.
My neighbor next door is moving so he had a full house sale over the weekend. I lucked out and bought his snowblower for $150. Its got some years of use on it, but hes kept it in amazing shape. A new gas one like this is around $800+. I hope it works great this next winter. It could save me all kinds of time shoveling.
My PC came with a free month of Game Pass Ultimate. I decided to check out what I can play for free and found out how garbage the Xbox App for PC is. I downloaded Halo Infinite. The game wouldn't load. It would show the spartan insignia and then I'd just get a black screen. I never got to the title screen. Upon investigating this, its apparently a common issue. I tried all the "fixes" and uninstalled and re-installed the game twice. It never worked. So then I try to play The Ascent with a friend. The game worked fine solo, but we couldn't connection to each other. Again, I look it up and its once again.... a common issue. This time with no fix. We gave up and bought it on steam where it works without any issues. Needless to say, I'm cancelling Game Pass.
I never wanted to try to Souls game. The thought of being one shotted and having to start all over again from a single mistake always turned me off. I don't have as much time as I use to to "git gud". Fallen Order was the closest i ever played to a souls style game, but by the time you got force powers, the game became more like inFAMOUS games than Souls. I got Elden Ring for whatever reason and honestly... I've been enjoying the hell out of it despite some soul crushing moments. I like the freedom, the exploration, finding good gear laying around without having to fight anything. Gear that will give you a fighting chance to get even better gear. You're not forced to fight any of the bosses in any particular order You can skip bosses to get to most of the world with exception of the last 2 areas. The purpose of beating bosses to to progress the story. So I've played in a way where I've gone to most the world. geared up as high as possible.. allowing me 1 fully upgraded legendary weapon.. and being able to have an easier time with the story bosses... then there are "optional" bosses that are just savage AF and HP sponges. I've beaten a few but some are just beyond my skill level. Either way, I highly recommend this game as a non souls fan. At the very least, its worth your money when it goes on discount sometime down the road.
