Easter Sangria

Our friends over at Voga recently sent us some fun recipes for Easter.  This one really resonated!  I am a really big fan of wine based cocktails, punches and Moscato.  The Easter Sangria combines all three.  Plus, you get the added bonus of being able to wow your friends and relatives with that punch bowl your grandma gave you.  I grew up in the Midwest and no self respecting woman would be caught dead on … Read more

Berry Cobbler

We went to a very berry event last night hosted by Driscoll Berries. It was an interesting evening of cooking lessons and food photography all centered around blackberries. During the course of the evening, I sat next to one of the folks from Driscoll and learned a ton about berries.

I suggest you take the extra time to make your own orgeat, using our recipe. However, you can also use a well-made orgeat by Small Hand Foods, Okole Maluna or your favorite ingredient … Read more

Basil and mint are usually my go-to cocktail herbs. Occasionally, I’ll get a little creative with the rosemary. But tarragon is an herb I hadn’t mixed with until recently. And the results were fantastic!

I was at a dinner party and it was cocktail time. Someone suggested mixing tarragon with the garden-fresh strawberries we had available, and a new, delicious cocktail was born.
