The-Craft-Cookbook-IPAS-to-Porters

When it comes to cookbooks, you can never have enough if they involve alcohol, popular condiments or meat. We never thought we’d get to the point that we would actually enjoy reading or using a cookbook, but when the subtitle is “From IPAs and Bocks to Pilsners and Porters, 100 Artisanal Recipes for Cooking with Beer,” all bets are off because we love beer. From ribs, to couscous, to soup and even frittatas, The Craft Beer Cookbook includes over 100 recipes that somehow involve craft beer. What really sells it are the user review excerpts. “Easy to follow instructions.” Obviously this is a plus. “There is even a helpful chart to aid in what beers pair best with certain types of food.” Makes it easy to impress guests. “The photos are beautiful and it is so great to be able to see what the finished product should look like.” And there’s a system of checks and balances for your creation? Where do we sign?

FLiKR-Fireplace-IF2

This versatile, single-person fireplace emits a cozy warmth whenever you need it to, while also being doubly useful as a safe cooking surface for small items like skewers and s’mores. Since it takes just 5 ounces of isopropyl rubbing alcohol fuel for roughly 50 minutes of burn time, you’re set for the foreseeable future with just the medicine cabinet staples. It doesn’t hurt that it also looks great.
