Jolly Rancher Vodka

  The most popular post on this blog is Skittles Vodka Party Favors.  It turns out that everyone really likes brightly colored DIY flavored vodkas.  Many of the comments I’ve received are about variations.  Different liquors, different sizes, or different candies.  People are so creative!  I’d never thought of half of the things that people […]

Oh…hello there!  It’s been a while, hasn’t it?  I wish I had some really cool excuse like getting recruited for a super secret spy agency and I was out of the country being awesome and doing cool things.  But I wasn’t.  Let me give you a short update on what I’ve been up to.  I […]

Green Smoothies and my first GIVEAWAY

March 7, 2012
Green Smoothies

When Hilary Greenleaf sent me an email asking if I wanted to talk about green smoothies and her new book “The Green Smoothie Diet,” my first thought was “No way, smoothies with spinach are definitely no good.”  For some reason, I decided to reply and say, “Let me check out your book first.”  After reading […]

Plum Margarita

Plum Margarita

I love plums.  They are my second favorite food (because whose favorite food isn’t mac and cheese?).  When I saw them in the store for the first time this year, I freaked out.  There weren’t very many and they were way overpriced because it’s not quite plum season yet, but I bought some anyway.  Generally […]

Valentine's Day Drink

First up, random news.  My post about asiago bagels was featured on Yummly.com!  You can see my new Yummly badge under the tab above “Links & Blog Roll.”  Now, on to the regular blog post about mushy gushy Valentine’s Day. It always sort of freaked me out how much pink there was on Valentine’s Day.  It […]

I went to college in Washington (University of Puget Sound).  It is always wet there.  It’s a misconception that it’s always raining there.  It doesn’t always rain, it’s just always wet and usually drizzling.  When I have a break between classes, and it’s wet, and I have to study, I just want a hot drink. […]

I’m very excited for tomorrow.  I am January 6th Foodista’s Featured Drink Blog of the Day for my post Mike’s Sunrise! To celebrate, I made another drink!  This drink is very fruity but it’s mostly peach flavored.  I have named it “Just Peachy.”  I love colorful drinks and blue curacao is just perfect for adding flavor […]

Mike’s Sunrise (Holly’s NYE Drink)

Mike's Sunrise

I made a delicious drink today.  I was going to post about it tomorrow, but I think everyone will be hung over and not want to hear about an alcoholic drink.  I think that’s how I’m going to feel at least.  Right now though, I feel good and I’m looking for a delicious New Year’s […]

Isn’t that just what you always want to see when you come to a blog?  Rainbow alcohol.  Absolutely (pun intended)!  Skittles Vodka is great like that. With New Year’s Eve coming up, everyone is looking for ideas for their party.  One party I had in college was a “Taste the Rainbow” party.  We infused vodka […]
