Alton Brown’s Hot Cocoa Mix

Alton Brown’s Hot Cocoa Mix

I love homemade hot chocolate, made with milk or rich cream, but sometimes it’s cold and you want something a little easier and kid-friendly (and lighter). When I do, I turn to this Hot Cocoa Mix recipe that I adapted from Alton Brown’s. What do […]

Cold-Brew Iced Coffee Concentrate

Cold-Brew Iced Coffee Concentrate

Last summer, I finally returned to iced coffee as my afternoon/lunch break treat. And for that, I love this Cold-Brew Iced Coffee Concentrate. It’s just so easy to make ahead, and then I can have coffee whenever I want! Some days I just need something […]

Campari Margarita

Campari Margarita

It surprises me that I’m writing a post about a recipe for a Campari Margarita. It surprises me because, in fact, it’s the only drink with Campari that I’ve enjoyed. I’m sure some of you are in the same boat as we are, with a […]

Hot Chocolate Mix

Hot Chocolate Mix

I had planned to make this Hot Chocolate Mix to send with my gift packages. I made a small batch to test, but I didn’t have the time to package it and send it out as gifts. It’s delicious, so it’s on my agenda for […]
