• UFO White
    Harpoon UFO White AleBarbecue sauce – the staple of summer cooking. I grow weary of the same ole ketchup/tomato based sauces. On a day when the early morning temp was already 85, I decided to challenge myself with creating a light, unique barbecue sauce recipe for chicken or pork, deserving of the UFO White beer. To be honest, the lightness of the UFO White, with notes of orange & coriander (and I swear I detected a hint of banana! Some say a note of hay – I’ve personally never tasted hay!), I felt this was the perfect beer to meet this challenge. Warning: this is such a fabulous summer beer, you’ll have your own challenge to not drink several while you’re making this! Copyright © Henriettibles 2014 All Rights Reserved.

  • Guinness
    I’m known for my mac and cheese. I mean REALLY known. It occurred to me that I hadn’t made a Cookin’ with Craft version. What better time than March with Guinness Irish Lager. I’ll admit, I have way more Greek in my bloodline than Irish, but I celebrate St. Patrick’s Day as if I had a double dose of Irish in me (I KNOW there’s a dirty joke or two in there!). Enjoy your Henriettibles Guinness Irish Lager Mac & Cheese with a smooth and creamy glass of Guiness! Erin go bragh!
  • best eggnog Evah!

    I worked to re-create this eggnog recipe for several weeks (it was a tough gig!).

    Back story: I remember when I was 13 or so, I made fresh eggnog for the first time. I fell in love with it. Unfortunately, I have no idea what that recipe actually was, but this (minus the booze!) is the taste that I remember - or close to it. I know  didn't have cloves or cardamom, but I think they add some nice warmth to the recipe. This recipe is the best I've ever had!!!  Or made!!
    • I used the store bought to make the Henriettibles Peppermint Eggnog Martini, and while store bought eggnog is passable for the martini, it's only available seasonably. THIS eggnog, you can make any time you have a "Hank"ering - for eggnog or a tasty martini!

    A couple notes:

    • You can reduce the amount of bourbon and/or rum to taste.
    • RAW EGG WARNING!!!!!  If you don’t get pasteurized eggs, be sure to properly test the eggs before using to avoid salmonella poisoning.
      • The FDA suggests avoiding contact between the egg white/yolk and the exterior shell.
      • If your immune system is compromised, you should avoid consuming foods that contain raw eggs.
  • For a special drink for the holidays, but refreshing and yummy any time, enjoy the kiss of minty Peppermint and the holiday spirit of Eggnog in an easy to make and enjoy martini.

    For this I used store bought eggnog. But if you want to make your own eggnog for this martini, just visit our Henriettibles Best Eggnog EVAH recipe!

    This martini is Mild and Refreshing.  Mmmmmmm!

  • Henriettibles version of RumChata pumpkin pies done

    One of my favorite versions of pumpkin pie for the Holiday season is made with a rum variation of horchata, called "RumChata". It's quite the yummy concoction.

    The RumChata.com website posted the original version of this recipe. And I have seen and tried several other variations of this special pumpkin pie, which were based on the original recipe. But the others all seemed a little off to my taste, and some were even missing key ingredients! I've done a little tweaking to the recipe, and this is my RumChata pumpkin pie recipe for you to prepare and enjoy with family and friends! The great thing about cooking with any liquor like this? I can also put it in my coffee! Now THAT is how you start the day right! I've also added my pie crust recipe, 'cause that's how I roll!  :)

    Got a question about this, or any of our Henriettibles Recipes, please Contact Us! We love to hear from you!

After ringing in the New Year, all that debauching from the Holidaze has given you “buyers remorse”. Packed on a few pounds, eh? I know I did my fare share debauching pound packing! So, we’ve all decided we’re going to exercise every day, eat right, drink less. Torture is what I call it!

Believe it or not, you can actually come up with some pretty tasty recipes that won’t pack on the pounds, but they will give you plenty of...

Turkey brine. It strikes fear in the hearts of many. B-R-I-N-E. Say it. Love it. Embrace it. It’ll change your turkey day!  Brining turkey, chicken or pork creates a succulent and ahhhmaaazing beast.

Bologna Cake. I know; it sounds strange. Given that October 24th was National Bologna Day, I thought it was worth delving into. The first time you heard of it was probably while watching the flick, “Sweet Home Alabama”, and you thought to yourself, “They just made that up for the movie!”  I assure you; like Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, Bologna Cake does exist! It’s not the sweet treat that you think of when you hear “cake”. It’s a savory...

This pomegranate granola recipe came about because I was out of granola to put in my morning yogurt. I poked around my cabinets a little while and, voilà, awesome on a stick happened the first try. My good friend, Deb Carpenter, tried it and proclaimed, “This is the best granola I’ve EVER had. And I mean friggin EVER!”​  And she was eating it while drinking wine!  Of course, the wine may have contributed to her enthusiasm….
