Beet Kale Salad & Springtime Oat Smoothie

Gloria Ferrer & the Poached Pear

There are a few foodie milestones that come with growing into a proper adult – eating your first mouthful of caviar without gagging, knowing the difference between chocolate truffles and actual truffles, and learning to pair a good wine with a yummy dessert.  Well, I can’t help you with the caviar reflex (not something I’ve mastered yet, myself), but I certainly can help you with the dessert-wine pairing.   I recently teamed up with Gloria Ferrer to create a sweet spring recipe to go along with their Pinot Noir.  But before we jump to the recipe, it’s a good rule of …

There is one tradition that is a must in my household come Easter and its name, my friends, is baking.  From sweet hotcakes to a rustic bundt, it’s a requirement for the holiday.  Not only is it wonderful to get spoiled with a bit of sugary decadence, it’s a wonderful bonding activity that has been passed down from generation to generation in my family.  My mom learned the art from her grandmother and made it an integral part of Easter celebrations during my childhood.  Plus I always got to lick the bowl… obviously, the best memories I have as a …

Moonshine.  The not-so-sweet nectar of the North American backwoods.  Personally, I find it quite difficult to swallow, being more of a whisky gal myself.  But when I was sent today’s lovely Texan nuptials, I couldn’t help but be intrigued by their wonderfully creative favors.  Let’s be a little adventurous and take another stab at the strong beverage with our inspired Apple Pie Infused Moonshine recipe.  And in the meantime, check out Anna and Erick’s beautifully rustic day.

The Starbucks Cozy Collection

  Let’s set the scene:  It’s blistering cold outside.  Snowflakes fall as the wind rustles through the trees.  Even though it’s mid-day, the sky is shaded by a thick layer of frost-filled clouds. On a day like this, can you think of anything better than cozying up with a blanket, cookies, and a delicious cup of hot cocoa?!  I thought not!  The afternoon that I received Starbucks® Cozy Collection in the mail was just that sort of bone-chilling winters day.  And it couldn’t have been more timely… I squealed with delight upon opening the box, because clearly my day was about …
