Have you ever had a steamer before? Do you like them? I kinda do. If you don't know what a "steamer" is.. it's basically milk that has been heated with added flavor. I once-upon-a-time worked in a Sandwich Shop.. Tony's in Walla Walla, WA. (best panini's if you are in the area). Anyhow they had a little coffee bar that we would experiment with making all sorts of concoctions. I loved to make steamers, the milk was the perfect base for any crazy flavor mix I was in the mood for. Now I get my . . .
I just love warm cidery drinks like this cranberry spiced cider. They don't leave me as heavy and caloried down like I feel after a cup of hot chocolate (don't get me wrong there are many times when a frothy hot cocoa is calling my name too), I just feel warmed and refreshed. It's even better when a blanket and or book (or my favorite TV show hehe ) is involved. My cute friend, who also gave me this cranberry salsa recipe to share, made this Cranberry Cider for a church event last . . .
It is the season where a warm beverage is the perfect addition to a hay ride, trick or treating, or snuggling up with a movie. This classic Wassail is so simple and will make your house smell like heaven. A friend gave me this recipe after I drank about a gallon of it at an event. Something about this simple combo of flavors is addicting and delicious. If you prefer to wrap the spices in cheesecloth rather than steeping them loose, that works great! I tend to just pour mine thru . . .
We have been ADDICTED to these extremely healthy acai bowls this past month! With cold and flu season hitting hard + public school germs infiltrating themselves into our lives I couldn't ask for a better immune booster than this bad boy. Plus, I love that my kids beg for a smoothie every dang day. Why is it so healthy? Let me show ya... It's got ACAI (richest form of anti-oxidants, amino acids, vitamin c, A, B1, B2, B3 and E. Calcium, copper, magnesium and zinc) PROBIOTIC CHIA . . .

Did you know that June is national iced tea month? Today I'm making a green smoothie and including one of my favorite herbal teas. I don't drink black tea, but I LOVE iced herbal tea. It is such a little treat for me. I usually add in a touch of almond milk and stevia for a sweet afternoon treat. As you know, we are good friends with the folks over at Takeya. I really love their pitcher. I use it for crystal light, orange juice, ice tea, and ice water. Each time I've used it while . . .
Have you guys jumped on the bandwagon yet? One of my biggest weaknesses is soda! I love an icy cold soda at about 3pm - with a straw. Many times I've tried to kick this craving with so much luck! When I heard about La Croix I thought it was something I could get behind and try and slowly get off of my soda addiction. La Croix is a sparkling water with a flavor essence. They have lots and lots of flavors to choose from. Today I'm drinking apricot which is the perfect summer flavor. La . . .

We lived in Kansas City and would always go to a restaurant called Black Eyed Pea. We would order the kids meal with steam spinach, mashed potatoes + gravy and a Shirley Temple for a drink. WE LOVED this dinner. The waiter every.single.time. would gape at us kids ordering steamed spinach! What . . .
Strawberry Basil Lemonade. Does that sound a little unusual to you? It's kind of different. When you first drink a sip of the lemonade you're hit with a sweet strawberry sensation, then comes the bubbles (if you used sparkling water) and then the basil, followed with minty, refreshing aftertaste in your mouth! I recently served this at a dinner party and everyone asked for the recipes. They LOVED it. One woman said "You know how lemonade is so sweet it doesn't really quench your thirst or leave . . .
