Beer, BBQ, Books And Baking

Sweet Chili Lime Chicken Breasts

Mike enjoys barbecue with a cold beer.

Stacy prefers baking and reading a good book.

So we decided to share our passions for Beer, BBQ, Books and Baking.

This is where you will find our recipes for BBQ and Baking, among other family recipes.

Mike will share tips on BBQ and Stacy will share tips on baking.

You can also find Stacy’s book reviews, recommendations and current reads.

He likes beer and barbecue.
She likes books and baking.


We are Mike and Stacy and together we love the four B words, Beer, BBQ, Books and Baking.

Mike loves Beer and BBQ. For him, those two things go hand in hand.

For Stacy, books and baking are two passions she cannot live without.

They say opposites attract, well that is us. While Mike enjoys beer, Stacy hates the taste and would rather have a coffee or a fancy cocktail. Mike could spend hours outside with his barbecues and smokers, while Stacy would rather be inside trying new recipes for cakes and cookies. Stacy loves to read but Mike prefers to listen to music.

We also have many things in common, like our love of football, except we just can’t agree on which teams to cheer for in the NFL. Mike is a Dallas Cowboys fan while Stacy cheers for the Buffalo Bills. We do agree on the CFL (Ottawa Redblacks), hockey (Ottawa Senators), baseball (Toronto Blue Jays) and basketball (Toronto Raptors).

Mike shares his BBQ recipes and his love for cooking outdoors using his Weber Kettle and Oklahoma Joe Smoker.  Whether it be grilling or smoking, he loves to talk about his techniques and discuss new recipes.  And since we live in Canada, he will also share tips on cooking outside in the snow and cold weather (typical Canadian BBQ).

Stacy started barbecuing in 2020, and shares her recipes created on her Cuisinart gas grill. 

There will also be baking galore, especially in the fall and leading up to Christmas. Stacy shares recipes from her childhood, which was French Canadian baking and great food. There are also new recipes she creates for their family.

And Stacy writes about the books she is reading because she never misses a chance to discuss what she is reading with someone. (so feel free to send her a message recommending a good book)

And of course, there will be posts about life with ten children, a few grandchildren and two dogs. So come back often and see what’s new. Life is an adventure for us and we can’t wait to tell you all about it.
