rose tea blend

Coconut Rose Tea Blend

I don’t drink a lot of tea in the summer. My summer nights are filled with back porch beers or happy hour margaritas outdoors. When it starts to get cold, however, that all changes. It’s not that I give up on cocktails. But I certainly don’t drink as many outside. Instead, on cold nights, I [...]

cold brew smoothie

Almond Butter Cold Brew Smoothie

A cold brew smoothie to start your day is the perfect way to get your caffeine fix. My morning routine starts with a piping hot cup of strong coffee with lots of milk. But if you remember from July, I have kind of been on a cold brew kick. It’s been so hot and humid [...]

apple cinnamon smoothie

Apple Cinnamon Smoothie

A delectable apple cinnamon smoothie made with tart apples, creamy coconut milk and a touch of honey is a great way to start your day! Most smoothies are made with bananas and berries, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But there are plenty of other fruits that make a delicious healthy smoothie, and one of [...]

red velvet tea

Red Velvet Tea Blend

A red velvet tea blend is sweet, chocolatey, and reminiscent of everyone’s favorite cake. If I had to choose between cake and pie, I would choose pie every time. With very few exceptions (I do love Milk Bar’s classic birthday cake!) It’s not that I don’t like cake. I definitely do. But even though I [...]

black sesame smoothie

Blueberry Black Sesame Smoothie

A black sesame smoothie for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? Yes, please! I’m all about getting nutrients in my diet while also tricking myself into eating something delicious. And smoothies are an easy way to do that. Especially when you can pack veggies like spinach, and high antioxidant foods like black sesame seeds. Why black sesame [...]

peanut butter whiskey sour

Peanut Butter Goat Cheese Cherry Whisky Sour

A peanut butter whiskey sour gets a makeover with goat cheese and a homemade sour cherry mix. I have always been a beer drinker for the most part. And I still am a beer drinker, but I’ve gotten into craft cocktails a lot lately. It’s a lot like cooking — there are easy, simple, and [...]

strawberry coconut smoothie

Strawberry Coconut Smoothie

A luscious creamy strawberry coconut smoothie is everything right now. This is the worst time of the year. It’s cold and gray. We got a huge bunch of snow that won’t go away. Because it’s cold and gray. And we sometimes get a sliver of sunshine that makes you think spring is in the air. [...]

turmeric hot chocolate

Turmeric Mocha

Creamy turmeric hot chocolate with a jolt of strong coffee? Sign me up! A while ago, a friend of mine gave me something called MUD/WTR. This is marketed as a coffee substitute and is made of lots of good for you things like turmeric, cacao, and some ground up mushrooms. You mix it with hot [...]

easiest pina coladas

The Easiest Pina Coladas

The easiest pina coladas are creamy, rich, sweet —  but not too sweet — and have a nice kick. They’re also easy to make and hard to mess up, because who wants a lot of stress when drinking pina coladas? Isn’t that the ultimate relaxation drink? We recently got some new patio furniture, which led us to [...]

rose water margarita

Rose Water Margarita

If you’ve never had a rose water margarita, you’re missing out. I have definitely upped my cocktail game in the last year. So much so that I feel like I’m overpaying when I go out and order a drink. Which, hasn’t happened much to be honest. A good margarita is hard to come by. I [...]
