Love bourbon recipes? These cocktails, meals, and desserts showcase Kentucky’s favorite spirit– bourbon whiskey.
I’ve got exciting news!
The husband and I moved to Kentucky!
If you thought I already lived in Kentucky, you weren’t far off– we lived just across the state line.
But now, we’re official.
And my bourbon obsession just got real. “Real-er?”
Anyway, now we’re EVEN CLOSER to the wonderful Kentucky Bourbon Trail, and I’m fairly certain I’ll be sipping on some grain-based spirits soon.
And I’ll be cooking with it too– because that’s how we roll here in Kentucky.
