Food & Recipes

When I eat something I like at a restaurant and really like it, I do my best to recreate that dish at home.  I'm not always successful, as dozens of tries to recreate Chi-Chi's Chicken Diablo proves, but often I nail it, or even do better.  This is a collection of my favorites.

I intend to break out the Brewing information to a separate area soon, as I am hoping to have much more to share in that area in the near future!
