    LaSalle County, IL reportedly claims the highest alcoholism rate in the state. As my salute, these are recipes made using beer, whiskey, tequila, wine, rum, brandy, liqueurs, etc....

    This was prepared on Andreas Viestad's cooking show, "New Scandinavian Cooking", and it's a bit different than you may expect of the cuisine... it's definitely more garlicky than I would have thought. And despite all the vodka, it's not boozy at all. In fact, I actually used aquavit in place of the vodka and it added even more interesting flavor. If you use a smaller roast, be sure to adjust the oven time accordingly; sirloin roast can go from perfect to too dry very quickly.

    Recipe #121686

    A very subtle and simple Swedish method for crawfish (or shrimp) by Andreas Viestad. It has a very distinct almost "caramelized" aroma. I saw this prepared on Andreas's cooking show; what you don't hear from this recipe is his recommendation to keep live crawfish in water in your bathtub overnight so they can be "cleaned out", if you know what I mean. I've prepared this with shrimp as well, and amazingly, they don't turn into hockey pucks after the 1 to 2 hour sitting time (and this time is reflected in the prep).

    Recipe #119122

    I made up these sauteed onions one night to top a beef and Swiss sandwich; they're perfect on burgers, steaks and the like and a little swished around in some fried potatoes doesn't hurt, either. Please use a good whiskey, something like Maker's Mark is excellent, and don't be afraid to add more whiskey if you like! Also, this recipe doesn't make a large quantity; the onions are best when eaten immediately.

    Recipe #113146

    From the fabulous Lidia Bastianich, her recipe for Beef Short Ribs Braised in Red Wine. This is wonderful Sunday dinner comfort food and is easy to prepare once you master a bit of multi-tasking, reducing the wine while browning the ribs while the mushrooms soak, etc. I think mashed potatoes are the ultimate accompaniment for this...

    Recipe #112553

    I don't believe I ever saw "ravioli in broth" as an appetizer until I dined in LaSalle County, IL. This is a wonderfully rich-flavored recipe, and not for the "wine-faint-of-heart". It makes an elegant beginning for a special dinner; the flavors are complex and I would suggest a simple entree to follow; perfectly grilled fish or chicken would be ideal.

    Recipe #110294

    One of those old-fashioned supper club type recipes, complete with a smoky piano bar in the corner and an ashtray on every table. This recipe comes from the 1965 edition of "The Gourmet Foods Cookbook" published by the Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, Illinois. And in fact, Shrimp de Jonghe was created in Chicago in the 1920s at the De Jonghe Hotel on Monroe Street in The Loop, either by the hotel owner himself or his chef, Emil Zehr. Unfortunately, the hotel was closed in the 1930s for, yup, violations of the Prohibition Act. I've reduced a little of the butter and replaced a tablespoon of it with olive oil, but this dish is still very rich, and may be prepared as an appetizer for 4 people as well.

    Recipe #108867

    Full-flavored, versatile and quick, this sauce tastes like you slaved over it for hours and is good to have on hand for busy weeknights. Its possibilities are endless - a sauce for anything from pastas to Italian sausage or meatball sandwiches, to eggplant parmigiana, or as a dipping sauce for fried mozzarella sticks.

    Recipe #77097

    The flour is the key to this rich, satisfying dish - it transforms the tomato sauce into more of a gravy. And the mushrooms lend lots of flavor with their rich, earthy juices, too. It's perfect served over spaghetti or bucatini (one of my favorites).

    Recipe #77139

    This chicken has the wonderful flavors of lime juice, rum, onions, garlic, and island spices - plus a little bite of hot peppers. Adjust the heat to your liking, and either grill or oven-bake the chicken - it's delicious either way. Prep time includes marinating. Cook time is approximate for marinade only, not chicken itself.

    Recipe #78970

    A succulent roast pork using the ingredients of a Cuba Libre - rum, cola, and lime juice - in a brine of kosher salt, brown sugar and honey. The brine smells a little boozy, but the flavors are subtle and delicious! This brine works for other pork cuts, too, such as tenderloin or even thick pork chops, and meat can also be grilled (so cook time is approximate for that variable, and also according to which cut of meat used). Prep time is the brining time.

    Recipe #79198

    Beef, beer, pearl onions, garlic, bay leaves, oregano and touches of brown sugar and red wine vinegar create a hearty winter or fall stew. Serve with buttered rice or egg noodles, and a simple vegetable side dish.

    Recipe #79439

    A moist, luscious banana bread with a touch of coconutty Malibu rum and a sprinkling of shredded coconut within! The original recipe is from the Sugar In The Raw website, but I changed it to add the Malibu rum, shredded coconut and allspice. As always, be sure that the bananas are REALLY ripe - the skins almost need to be black - and do not overmix the batter.

    Recipe #79475

    Delicious and sophisticated comfort food! This is wonderful spooned on top of hot buttery mashed potatoes, or on a crusty sandwich roll with lots of melted cheese. Warm up and enjoy on a chilly night!

    Recipe #79589

    These are my very own borrachos, "drunken beans" cooked with a little beer, onions, garlic, and my favorite - cumin! These are also delicious mashed with a little Oaxacan or Chihuahua white cheese crumbled on top, or with soft warm corn tortillas. The heat can be adjusted with more (or less) poblanos or hot sauce, and prep time includes soaking the beans (using my quick soak method).

    Recipe #79588

    Herby, spicy shrimp with a kick, in a buttery-beer "sauce". Fast, easy and delicious, serve as an appetizer, or a dinner over rice or with lots of crusty French bread to soak up all the tasty, herbalicious sauce!

    Recipe #79606

    This sweet sauce is exceptional on grilled chicken or pork, with its bourbon-brown sugar-pineapple-garlicky flavors. It can also be used on oven-baked foods, basting frequently. I prefer to use smooth Knob Creek bourbon whiskey, but you can use Jack Daniels or whatever you like. Prep time includes roasting the garlic for this recipe. Yield is approximate.

    Recipe #80237

    This is really a quick bread, tender inside with a crunchy crust. You may adjust the amount of black pepper used, but I like it like this! "Bacaba" is the friendly liquor store in Sandwich, Illinois where I first heard of beer bread (from one of their customers), so immediately I had to research it(!). After research and some tweaking, this is the result!

    Recipe #80236

    This is a simple, quick and sweetly rich baked bean dish made easy with the use of canned beans, and flavored with molasses, bourbon and a bit of brown sugar and Dijon mustard. It makes a nice vegetarian main dish, or as a side dish with baked ham.

    Recipe #80633

    Fast, easy, delicious with a touch of cinnamon and cloves and a dash of rum. This fudgy pudding cake makes its own sauce while it's baking and is a snap to put together. Rum extract can be substituted for the rum, but I'm not sure of the measurement. Be sure to try this warm with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream!

    Recipe #81526

    This tender Portuguese stewed beef in a rich, flavorful red wine sauce is toooooo good! It's named after the clay pot in which the stew is cooked. The pot is typically soaked overnight, then the meat is cooked at very low heat for about 7 hours. This version takes less time, is very easy, and leftovers are wonderful (recipe is easily doubled). This can be served over rice or pasta, or with small boiled white potatoes. Prep time includes overnight marinating.
