Here I am and here you are. I am a graduate student who handles stress by cooking. I also live in a city where breweries are abundant. Lastly, I am a girl who enjoys and values experimenting in the kitchen.

A good friend of mine once said,

“Just as gravy makes a lake in the potatoes, so does a [beer] warm the heart”

She actually said that a sweater warms the heart, but I figured I could make a small substitution.

I wanted to use this quote because it is silly and it is good! I find both of these comments to be true (of course in moderation with the beer. Always). One aspect I love about food is that it brings people together to enjoy a substance that is life sustaining. Plus, any reason to eat and share with friends is a good reason!

Long story short, I was gifted a KitchenAid mixer one fine Christmas morning and I wanted to put it to use as much as I can. I also have been toying around with the idea of enjoying beer with different foods. I hope you enjoy this adventure with me.


If you have any recommendation on what I should try next, please let me know!
