August 2 is International Beer Day (IBD)!  I love beer.  My senior year of college, my best friend and I found a bar that had a beer challenge where you had to drink all of the different bottles and draft beers offered within 3 months of starting the challenge.  We went there a couple times a […]

Mac and Cheese

My boyfriend is away this week house sitting for some friends.  Normally when he’s gone for an evening working at the hospital or out with friends, I like the time to catch up on my girly shows and eat whatever I want.  But a whole week?!  We’ve done long distance before (1 1/2 years total between […]

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 […]

I apologize in advanced.  I held out on you.  I didn’t post this recipe for a VERY long time.  There’s this thing called the Daring Kitchen and they have a division called the Daring Bakers.  They have one recipe a month all the members make and post about on the same day.  You have to do it […]

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 […]

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 […]
