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 . . .
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 . . .

I am ALWAYS rushed in the morning, so my go-to breakfast is always a shake. I've come up with some fun, tasty recipes over the years - and so I thought I'd share one of my staples today. With all of the processed foods these days I like to start off the day with something that is good for me, so I . . .
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 . . .
