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.

Apple Onion Puff

I wanted these to be a more savory than sweet so they would be a nice little appetizer instead of dessert. I used onion, cheddar cheese, and apple on top of a square of puff pastry.

Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce

My absolute best friend in college came to me with a recipe request. She loves butternut squash, but all the frozen butternut squash meals don’t have enough and the veggies get gross.

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 study abroad and school schedules not matching up), but it’s never fun. When I was deciding what to make this week for dinner,

Pita (also spelled Pitta)

This post is part 2 in a series leading up to the greatest stuffed pita of all time. The first recipe was piquillo pepper hummus and the last is stuffed pita. This hummus is amazingly and so simple. If you have time to make these, you have time to make the hummus. You really need to try it.

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.

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.
