How To Make The Best Ever
Hot Chocolate Mix

Can you tell I'm excited for the Fall to be here? Recently, I've posted about a hearty beef stew, an eggnog latte and, now, a homemade hot chocolate mix. Bring it! I am a big fan of hot chocolate. And so are the [...]

Eggnog Latte

(Better Than Starbucks!) Eggnog Latte

I have to admit that I love my more-than-occasional trips to Starbucks. It feels like such a treat to have a tasty latte prepared just for me. However, the frequency of these trips has increased and my once-beloved "treat" has now turned into an expensive habit routine. So, I started [...]

Strawberry Mint Lemonade

Strawberry Mint Lemonade

I'm not sure which word I love most in the title of this recipe. I tend to lean towards "Strawberry," but then I feel bad about leaving out the "Lemonade." And then there's the "Mint." Mmm. I guess that's what makes this recipe so darn good -- it's only has goodness going into it. With [...]

Laceys-Hard-Sweet-Tea-1

Lacey’s “Hard” Sweet Tea

Did you know they don't sell hard alcohol on Sundays in Texas? Me neither. Did you know they don't sell hard alcohol -- at all -- in supermarkets in Texas? Me neither. That last fact would have been *super* helpful last week and would have kept me from: (1) walking around the Beer and Wine [...]

Horchata Recipe

Horchata Recipe

I know I missed Cinco De Mayo by a few weeks, but I figured better late than never.  Right? I have a fondness for horchata that is hard to describe.  I just love the creamy, cool, soothing feeling I get when I drink an horchata. Oddly enough, I had never really thought about making it [...]

Non-Alcoholic Raspberry Mojito

I admit I'm extremely looking forward to enjoying a nice chilled glass of Riesling for dessert or even a cold beer while I watch a baseball game. After the baby comes, of course (hint, hint, baby Savannah!). But, in the meantime, I have enjoyed putting together some tasty non-alcoholic, baby-friendly concoctions, such as this Non-Alcoholic [...]

sweet-tea

Sweet Tea

I have a confession to make. I'm kinda a sweet tea addict.  I just love the stuff.  There's just something about that has "the South" written all over it. It's delicious and sweet and *gasp* they serve it everywhere out here in Texas. Coming from California, I am used to only unsweetened teas in restaurants. [...]

non-alcoholic-eggnog

Non-Alcoholic Eggnog

Not sure how things are in your house, but when the holiday season comes around, eggnog takes a welcomed spot in our fridge. Dustin seems to have some sort of eggnog radar when we are grocery shopping.  I know it's the holiday season, not when the leaves start changing and the weather gets colder, but [...]

Hot Apple Cider Recipe

I hope you all had an absolutely wonderful holiday weekend filled with family, friends, good times and great food. Without fail, I find I am so sad when the summer comes to an end because I think it is my favorite time of year.  But, as the leaves begin to change, the weather starts to [...]

Virgin Sangria

I really wanted to make some tasty sangria this summer. I got the idea to make my own sangria after going wine tasting with friends in Temecula, California.  Falkner Winery, one of the wineries we visited, has a recipe for sangria that uses two bottles of their Luscious Lips red wine which is absolutely delicious.
