Whenever I serve water at a party or holiday, I like to make it extra special. This twist on serving water is perfect for your Thanksgiving dinner. Not only is it beautiful, but your guest will love the touch of flavor that cranberries and mint add. I like to serve my water in a decorative punch bowl or a drink dispenser. That way your guest can see what they are serving themselves, and it adds to the decor. For this water I've chosen a simple punch bowl. Treat your guests and . . .

Years ago my husband I lived in Long Beach, CA. There was this little restaurant in a strip mall called Cha For Tea. I still crave that place. They had the most delicious blended drinks with boba. They also had these crispy dumplings that were to die for. When I was developing this recipe I kept thinking of Cha - and wanted to re-create what I used to order there. The base of my drink is the Coconut Lime Rooibos from Takeya. I'm an herbal tea drinker, so this is right up my alley. I . . .
Lemonade is the perfect summer refreshment, right? We have some pretty killer lemonade recipes here on the blog. Be sure to check out our classic lemonade and our strawberry lemonade. Divine. But today I want to talk to you about my newest creation. Sparkling Lavender lemonade. The Benefits of Lavender I think every mom out there needs a little R&R, and this lemonade is just that.

My husband and I love to entertain! We host 3-4 parties each year and enjoy every second of it! I am always on the lookout for perfect party food and drinks. I am also on the lookout for serving ware that will go with any theme. Over the years I've accumulated lots and lots of platters and drink dispensers. Party-ware is a fun little item to keep an eye out for. Recently I was introduced to Tervis drink ware - shown here in the pics. I am loving their entertaining collection! The . . .
For the last several years I have whipped up several batches of Hot Cinnamon Milk mix, both to keep in my pantry and to give to my neighbors as gifts. If you enjoy a steamer, you will love this stuff. I always package it into a mason jar for easy storage and cute packaging all in one. I love ending a long day of wrapping, baking, and merry making with a warm mug of hot cinnamon milk. It tastes like Christmas to me and it helps me unwind from the holiday hustle bustle. Its . . .
I really love coconut. I love recipes with coconut in them, and I love the smell of coconut. So when a local tea shop started serving coconut hot chocolate I was all over it. I thought I could pretty easily re-create that hot chocolate at home, and I was right! I started with canned coconut milk. You can opt for the coconut milk in a carton, but I think the canned has a little stronger coconut flavor. I added in some cows milk, and also some chocolate! I went with chocolate . . .
