Beer boiled peanuts that can be made in the crock pot. They have a wonderful garlic and onion flavor.

Oh hello there everyone!  It’s been a while. I was out on the road working on a gig and left Jess to pick up all my slack when it came to the blog.  And I must say, she’s done quite a great job!  But I’m back and ready to get my hands dirty again! Speaking […]
