Did you grow up drinking ice cold smoking homemade root beer at your halloween parties? I loved it every year when we would have it. A delicious sweetness, with a light fizz. Such a fun treat. As a mom, I love making it for the holiday. My kids love it also and feel it is so magical! ROOT BEER The beauty about homemade root beer is how EASY it is. The tricky part can be finding the items. So I have a few tips! Look for your supplies a head of time. I checked several stores that did . . .
Today I want to chat about WATER! The source of life. I am actually a water lover. I enjoy a nice big glass of ice water almost as much as a nice big glass of Diet Coke. But let's face it - sometimes it gets boring. Flavored sparkling water is a big trend right now, but I'm here to tell you that making your own still, infused water is just as good, if not better than those expensive canned waters. Reduce Single-Use Plastic Bottle Waste Today we've teamed up with Dopper to bring water . . .
Hands down - my absolute favorite Disneyland treat is the Dole Whip Float. I LOVE them! I honestly look forward most to this cold dessert more than any of the rides. And let me tell you - the float is the way to go. Skip the standard Dole Whip and go for the float. That tart pineapple juice next to pineapple soft serve is a match made in Disneyland heaven. Blendtec To The Rescue Creating a this copycat is a little easier than you may think. The Dole whip is dairy free - so no ice . . .
If you haven't noticed - we are big lemonade fans around here. And when Chick-Fil-A started selling a watermelon mint version I knew we had to do a copycat! With a summer weather upon us - there is really nothing like a nice cold glass of refreshing lemonade - and let me tell you, the mint-infused simple syrup makes this drink extra delicious! Mint Simple Syrup I started this recipe by creating a simple syrup infused with mint leaves. A simple syrup us a cinch to make and the base of . . .
A few weeks ago Des and I attended an event in Los Angeles. We had a chat about how there are drink people and non-drink people. Drink people always have a drink nearby, always offer a drink to guests, and love drinks. Non-drink people, well, don't. I'm definitely a drink person. A special recipe for a holiday or party is always on my list, and this Red, White, and Blueberry Spritzer with Martinelli's Sparkling Cider is no exception. 4th of July I love Independence Day. I love our . . .
These Mock Cranberry Mimosas were fun, and so beautiful. I couldn't help but go a little picture crazy. Mock Cranberry Mimosas are perfect for families, for brunch, for parties, for kids at any meal who want to feel fancy like the adults. They have a wonderful fizzy flavor tied with a fancy feeling. It's perfect for Dads or loved ones to make for their mothers on Mother's Day. Mostly because it's crazy easy while giving a faux appearance of difficulty. They just look so gourmet! I would . . .
I have really fond memories of drinking limeade as a kid. My mom would buy those frozen concentrates that you mix with water and we'd enjoy limeade all summer. I still love limeade even now. I wanted to make this limeade extra special, and pink, in honor of Valentine's Day. This drink is the perfect addition to your valentines meal, or a fun after school treat for your kids. . . .
I don't drink, but I always want something special to ring in the new year. Something bubbly and different. Something in a fancy glass. So - I came up with this idea. Not only is this mock champagne kid (and adult) friendly, but it is delicious and perfect for that special occasion. This New Years Eve try this bubbly beverage with your family or your festive party. Mock Champagne is a cinch to whip up! There are only three ingredients in the recipe. You heard me right - three . . .
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 . . .
