Alton Brown’s Pina Colada Waffles

Alton Brown’s Pina Colada Waffles

For months, I’ve had cans of coconut milk stored in my pantry, in anticipation of trying out these Pina Colada Waffles with Rum Sauce again. I first made them from Alton Brown’s recipe 8 years ago when I did my 365 Recipe Challenge, but I’ve […]

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 […]
