Rhubarb Moonshine Smash


Is it okay if we drink a little moonshine and forget our troubles? Granted, my only ‘troubles’ are the weather went from snow to 90-degrees too quickly, and the fact that weekends only last 2 days.  But, troubles are troubles, and moonshine soothes all. Is there a pink drink that doesn’t brighten your day? A [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Frozen Mocha Brownie Bites


First, promise me something:  Promise me that you will not hide these frozen mocha brownie bites from your husband.  Promise me that you won’t wrap them individually in plastic wrap and store them inside a bag of frozen asparagus in the back of the freezer.  Because that would be selfish.  And also, there’s a chance [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Strawberry Pretzel Parfaits

Earl Grey Tea Latte


Remember that Earl Grey tea latte? I can’t stop thinking about it either.  These tea lattes went from a once-a-week treat to a daily fix.  Times two.  I make 2 lattes some mornings.  I tell myself I’ll have just one and then switch back to green tea.  But, before I know it, my milk is [ Click to continue Reading! ]

What We’re Eating


What do we eat on a daily basis? Are you curious? I’m endlessly fascinated by what y’all eat every day.  I read quite a few blogs where people document their daily meals.  And I love them.  So, I thought I’d share an overview of what we eat. Breakfast:  Twice a month, I bake a double or triple [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Mashed Potato Truffles


No, that’s not a typo.  I really used mashed potatoes to make truffles instead of heavy cream. And believe me when I say:  no one can tell the difference.  I served them to many discriminating house guests over the past month. I watched closely for a raised eyebrow, a slight frown, anything! to tell me that you can [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Bourbon Milk Punch
