Bake with Beer: Guinness Cake Recipe

Secret Ingredient: Holiday Peace

by: Gav Martell

Guinness cake

Having a lot of family together in one place over the holidays can lead to a lot of strife. Sally doesn't want to sleep in the same room as her boy cousins. Little Bobby will only sit next to his brother at meals. No one likes Aunt Julie's green bean casserole. And Uncle Ned keeps muttering to himself in the corner about how his gifts are never appreciated.

Comforting and delicious, sweet and tangy, salty and savoury.

Huevos del Norte

I'm not sure how a Jewish girl from the Midwest US falls in love with Mexican food - but so it goes. My wife has always had an affinity for it. Tacos, quesadillas, taquitos, tortilla soup, burritos, tamales, chille rellenos, pambazos. Sign her up.

Parmesan Gnocchi with Lemon Butter and Sage

by: Gav Martell

Marrying a girl from Wisconsin has many immediate benefits. You automatically get to become a legitimate fan of the winning-est franchise in NFL history; you don't need an excuse to drink beer before noon; and you don't need to apologize to anyone for your insatiable love of cheese. Sure I could tell you all of the other reasons I married a girl from Wisconsin, but I'd rather win the day on beer and cheese alone. Crack open a bottle of your favourite brew and get a load of the cheesy goodness of this recipe for homemade Parmesan Gnocchi.
