This week Brad has a couple of bonus finds to share with you for his "The List"

Solider Valley - True American Bourbon

Distilled by: Patriarch Distillers, America

Suggested Retail: $40

Alcohol By Volume: 45%

This is a small-batch bourbon that has a very nice Gold appearance. A sniff reveals hints of molasses, caramel and slight citrus. It is smooth and carries the same molasses, caramel and citrus through the flavor. The aftertaste will offer results of a smooth charred oak flavor.


Soldier Valley True American Bourbon is a handcrafted small-batch traditional bourbon. Our recipe consists of a wide variety of grains including a blend of rye, wheat, barley and corn. This bourbon is distilled slowly to reveal a high natural spirit as it comes off the still.

Our Soldier Valley True American Bourbon rests for a minimum of six years in new, custom white American oak barrels. The final result is an American bourbon with an exceptional medium-bodied blend of warm tones and unparalleled taste, color and finish. We recommend sipping this bourbon over ice or drinking it with a splash of water or ginger ale.


Blonde Topped Brownies

Man Seeks Adventure is also down with cooking even when it's not on the grill. When it is a decadent treat, then all the better. Below is one you can make in almost any kitchen.  It is said that "You Can Never Be Too Rich", we agree, but these blonde topped brownies nearly are too rich. They are thick, dense chocolate and topped with a cookie dough that makes them two treats in one. These are awesome for that morning coffee accompaniment.

First go buy a box of Ghiradelli Triple Chocolate Brownie mix, yep a boxed mix. The mix is so good you may never ask for anything else. Follow the instructions for mixing the brownie batter, bake and chill thoroughly.

Next mix up that Cookie Dough: Use a large bowl and mix together the ingredients below until blended. Then just spread on the brownies evenly and chill for at least an hour.

Cookie Dough Mix up:

3/4 cup melted butter

3/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup light brown sugar

2 tablespoons milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup small chocolate chips
