IPA Chicken Strips and Flaky Pepper Biscuits

I am a sucker for comfort foods. Fried chicken, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, any sort of bread or pasta… you know, all the stuff that is just awful for your waistline, but incredibly delicious. We try to be healthy as often as we can at home, but sometimes you just have to give in…

His band, Green ToDay (Southern…

Pale Ale Spinach Artichoke Dip

Welcome to my new cooking with booze section! When I first started The Whiskey Wanderer a couple years ago, I intended it to only be a travel blog. But as time wore on, I decided I wanted it to include more of my interests. Not only does including more content make it a more interesting…

Brewery Spotlight: Pelican Brewing Company

When my boyfriend invited me to travel up to Oregon with him this fall to attend his mom’s wedding, of course I said yes. I would’ve said yes no matter where it was held, but this particular wedding destination had me really excited. They were getting married on the coast of Oregon in the town…
