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 […]

Strawberry Bellinis

Strawberry Bellinis

I was recently reminded of that time that I prepared way too many bellinis for my good friend Jen’s bridal shower. I’d never planned for a formal (-ish) party before and I had no sense of scale, no idea how much of anything would be […]

I’d like to introduce you to my new favorite hot chocolate mix. I’ve made hot chocolate or hot cocoa mix for the past several years as part of the gift boxes I like to send to friends and family. When I started, I would make […]

Cherry-Peach Sangria

Cherry-Peach Sangria

Cooking Light had a series of recipes using cherries recently, and I couldn’t resist adding the recipes to my to-make list. I had some great peaches last week, so I decided I would buy more so that the first thing I made would be Cherry-Peach […]

Gin Martinis and Gin Rickeys

Gin Martinis and Gin Rickeys

Recently Alex and I have been watching more (relatively old) Good Eats recently, and one of the episodes recently extolled the virtues of classic cocktails. Since Alton Brown insisted on gin in his martinis, we decided to revisit the spirit. I enjoyed an occasional gin […]

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 […]

Alton Brown’s Hot Cocoa Mix

Alton Brown’s Hot Cocoa Mix

Homemade hot chocolate, made from milk or rich cream, is nearly impossible to beat. Unfortunately, it takes a little time to make. I prefer hot cocoa mixes for sheer convenience. I’ve been making my own cocoa mix for a few years. Packets of hot cocoa […]
