Champagne Time!

Champagne Sundaes Dessert For Two

Today is the day I start singing ‘It’s the most wonderful time of the yeeeeeeeeear!’ You probably think I’m a bit late with that, but I love fresh starts, new beginnings, second chances, clean slates, do-overs, and all the things exactly like that!  The start of a new year refreshes and renews my goals in […]

Peppermint Mocha Affogato

Peppermint-Mocha-Affogato

Ohhhh, this drink.  This drink is my latest obsession.  I made it for my very good friend Bev who is having twins.  Two babies!  Today, a bunch of bloggers are throwing her a virtual baby shower.  We wish we could all go to Bev’s house and touch her belly and pet her beautiful face, but instead, […]

Boozy Pomegranate Cider

Pomegranate-Cider-5a

I whipped up this boozy cider on the first night it was acceptable to turn on the fire place. Wait, our fireplace has been on since September thanks to the fact that my husband accidentally paid the gas bill twice one month…one month, twelve months ago. And then, he continued to keep paying it, even […]

Jam Cocktails: Fig + Rye Whiskey

Whiskey-Fig-Cocktail-2

I’m here to help you streamline your cocktail routine on Fridays.  Your at-home mixology skills could use a shake-up. It’s Friday and you need a drink after work.  Stat.  But, you’ve had such a crazy week that making a batch of simple syrup isn’t in the cards.  I got ya covered.  Grab a jar of jam instead! Jams add sweetness […]

Peach Chai Frozen Yogurt Shake

Sometimes, I sneak dessert before dinner.*  I get home from work a few minutes before my husband.  This barely leaves me enough time to sneak a bite of sweet.  When I’m lucky, he waters the garden, gets the mail, and chats with the neighbors.  That gives me more time to indulge my sweet tooth. I […]

Peach Jalapeño Margaritas

Peach-Jalapeno-Margaritas-1

Can we talk about what I always blab about at parties when I have a margarita in my hand?  I brag about how the frozen margarita was invented in my hometown of Dallas.  I smugly sip my margarita and lick my salt mustache.  And then I peer-pressure everyone else to put a margarita in their […]

An Ode to Moonshine: Boozy Sweet Tea

Boozy-Sweet-Tea

I go through great lengths for moonshine.  To say that I would not be married to my husband without moonshine would not be an over-statement. Not only did we drive to Tennessee to buy Popcorn Sutton’s ‘shine to serve at our wedding, but we also planned our honeymoon around a trip to a moonshine distillery […]
