Lemon Strawberry Moscato Punch

Would you consider yourself more of a rule-breaker or follower?  If there’s a logical reason behind a rule, I’ll follow it.  However, if the reason behind the rule is, “Because I said so,” you might as well light a fire under my rump and put a flashing neon sign out that says, “Break me!” So when IRead More

Snickers Martini

When it comes to flavored martinis, I’m a huge fan.  In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever had a regular martini before.  Yikes!  One thing I’ve noticed is that with mixed drinks, almost every bar you go to will be slightly different in some way, just like with restaurants and food.  Several months ago whileRead More

Green Apple Martini

When it comes to girly froo-froo drinks, this definitely makes the top ten list…and for good reason.  It’s fruity.  It’s a martini.  It’s a pretty color.  That is a heck of a combination, and as one guy called it, “Yumdiddles!”  Yes, yumdiddles indeed. This is definitely one of my favorite alcoholic beverages, but one thingRead More

Homemade Mocha Hot Chocolate

Every once in a while, I get a craving for hot chocolate.  Takes me back to my young, spring chicken days of drinking hot chocolate with tons of mini marshmallows packed in there, always asking for more because there never seemed to be enough.  Although it’s summertime, that craving still peeks its head around theRead More

Pali Punch

When I made Hawaiian Chicken, this was the punch that went along with that meal.  Shoot, you can’t have a Hawaiian themed meal without the fruity, delicious punch, can you?  No!  My thoughts exactly.  While researching some different types of punch, the ingredients were what jumped out at me when it came to how IRead More

Homemade Coffee Liquor

While searching for items to make for my family’s edible gift baskets, I came across a recipe that made my eyes widen and start grinning from ear to ear.  Homemade flavored liquor?!  Yes!!  I had to try it.  My husband has made a couple of flavors of wine before, and the thought of making yourRead More

Strawberry Mimosa

I love mimosas.  The combination of orange juice and champagne, all rolled into one delicious beverage?  Sign me up.  Usually whenever I’ve had one, it’s at a family gathering.  Whether it’s a bridal shower, baby shower, or any other female gathering during the day (and sometimes even in the evenings), it’s always been a girlRead More

Orange Julius

Yesterday, I got an e-mail from my sister-in-law, inviting the family over for a cookout on Mother’s Day.  Of course!  I recently bought one of those crazy sprinklers, since my daughter has developed a fascination with spraying water lately.  So, we get to test out the new crazy sprinkler on her and my 3 yearRead More

Strawberry Amaretto Milkshake

Personally, I’m a sucker for milkshakes.  It’s hard to say no to the question when my husband asks, “I’m going to get a milkshake, do you want one?”  Well, I hadn’t even thought about having one…until you said something about it.  That actually happened last night, when he was going to the best place aroundRead More
