Believe it or not, The Frosted Petticoat blog is actually my side-gig. This is the spot where I get to play around with recipes and give you behind the scenes sneak peeks to the foodie world.

How about adding a fun (and a bit cheeky) signature drink to your next event? Take for instance, this fabulously retro Flamingo themed backyard party.
