• 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!

Wondering what side dish to serve with dinner?

Look no further; this simple, yet completely yummy Corn Casserole will make everyone’s mouth (and tummy) happy! This is a VERY simple corn casserole that my family has at almost every holiday dinner – certainly for Thanksgiving and Christmas. My late sister, Cece, introduced it to our family.  I’ve made some small changes to it, and I promise, you’ll add it as a regular recipe in your life.

Bourbon. You know it. You love it. Now you’ll really, really want it!  Two great tastes combined in one luscious cake, our Butter Pecan Bourbon Cake by Henriettibles.

What’s not to love? This cake is as easy to make as it is good to eat.  Every party I take this cake to, it disappears in the blink of an eye. If you’re taking it to a party, you might want to make two so you have some for yourself!
