Just Peachy

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 and color.

Green Smoothies and my first GIVEAWAY

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.”

Holiday Spiked Coffee

Since I blog about food, I tend to check out other food blogs too.  Smart, right?  Check out the competition.  Just kidding.  It’s more like learn from people that are better at cooking, or photography, or both and get some good recipe ideas along the way.  As the holidays approach, I’ve noticed more and more posts about homemade Bailey’s Irish Cream.

Elderflower Sangria

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 got a new job last year, I’ve run 2 half marathons (and got kinda into running, unexpectedly. Any other runners out there?), I got a puppy, and I moved.

Duke of Earl

I went to college in Washington.  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.  The coffee shop closest to my classes was a beautiful glass building where it was always warm and you could watch the rain drip down the sides.  It was the best place to study, chat, get coffee, or enjoy the weather.  I discovered the drink I’m about to introduce when the person in front of me ordered it, and I decided to try it.  It’s called a duke of earl.  Traditionally, it’s made with steamed milk, earl gray tea, and vanilla flavoring.

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 have suggested.

Mike’s Sunrise (Holly’s NYE Drink)

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 Eve Drink.
