Win The New Bacon Beans and Beer Cookbook

Bacon Beans Beer cookbook


Dear friends,

My newest cookbook will be released by Gibbs Smith on August 7, 2018, and I’m so excited to share it with you. Bacon Beans and Beer is filled with easy recipes featuring one, two, or all three of my favorite food groups (can you guess?) — crispy bacon, savory beans and bubbly beer!

The hardback book is 128 pages including beautiful four-color photographs by Susan Barnson Hayward, and it retails for $14.99.

As you might expect from a book written by me, the 65 recipes are all super simple and approachable. They call for readily-available ingredients, and those featuring beer can be made with your favorite brew — including nonalcoholic beer.

You’ll find a variety of easy selections, for appetizers like Beer Candied Bacon:

Simple meals like Beer Bacon Mac and Cheese:

Soups like Corn, Jack, Bacon and Beer Chowder:

Snacks like Bacon Cheese Fries:

  1. Adelaide would chose bacon… she has it almost every morning!

    Her Mom would choose beer because that would make it a vacation!

  2. I love your question on how to enter! So much fun!!! I’m not entering…conflict of interest, ya know…but I’d have to pick bacon! 😀 Congratulations on this wonderful book! I’ll be gifting it to lots of people!

  3. While I do love bacon and beans I would have to pick beer for sure. I’m no dietician but I believe it would definitely keep you alive as it has carbs, small amount of vitamins, potassium, calcium! It has all food groups – lol!

    So excited to see another book by you!!
    I think you have hit the nail on the head with this
    one for guys and gals! Congratulations!!
    I would want a case of beans!! Not sure why, but sounds more tolerable over s long period of time!! And might go better with tea! By the way, staple Sunday supper (tea) for the Brits is Beans and Bacon on toast with cheese optional

  5. My husband and I both agree….beer. He says for hydration, but I think it would go nicely with the coconuts, pineapple, and fish we will also have.

  6. Much as I love bacon and beer, I’m too practical to pass up a steady source of protein. Beans, it is!!

  7. I think my husband would choose the beer. LOL I do like beans, but I’m not sure that I would like them daily, and beans need flavor added like bacon! Bacon is so lovely—crispy, salty, fatty, and it’s protein!

  8. Bacon……I know beans would be the smartest choice in this situation, but since it’s just pretend I’m going to stick with my bacon!
