Who Wants to Win a Slow Cooker!?

The West Bend Versatility Slow Cooker
West Bend Housewares (one of the country’s best known small appliance brands) is celebrating their 100th anniversary this year, and to help get the word out they were nice enough to send me one of their new Versatility 6-Quart Slow Cookers. Right now I know that you’re probably thinking “Hey Nick, it’s great that you got a free slow cooker, but why should we care?” The answer to that is because West Bend is giving me a second slow cooker … Continue Reading »

The Brunch Burganator

The Brunch BurganatorIn case you haven’t noticed, people from Milwaukee love cooking with beer. Back in April I held a contest to see who could make the best grilled cheese sandwich and the winner (from Milwaukee) used Schlitz and Pabst as part of his recipe. A couple weeks ago I wrote about the Napoleon Dynamite from Cafe Centraal; a pile of pancakes layered with bacon, two eggs and a Belgian beer cheese sauce. Most recently I stopped at Stonefly Brewery for … Continue Reading »
