My sister bought me a guiness cook book last year for Christmas. Its a great excuse to have Guiness in the house.... I'm not much of a beer drinker myself but a slow simmered beef stew (or venison if I'm carefully watching the calories) is just wonderful on a cold weekend. There's a Guiness cake recipe too that I haven't tried yet. Maybe next time I'm having a bit of a calorie splurge.
Thanks. I'll try the brandy as we always have that around........the Guiness is a good idea, but it would never get into a recipe (no matter how little I might need).....this is the only beer I will drink and only one (every couple of months)
