Happy Memorial Day everyone! Our family celebrated with a weekend at the shore and of course some delicious food! As usual, I was in charge of dessert and wanted to try making something new. I knew it had to include berries since not only are they in season, they are also the perfect patriotic colors!… Continue reading Memorial Day Dessert: Lemon Berry Tiramisu
For the past few years our family’s Labor Day tradition has been to head down to our beach house and enjoy the weekend with some of our aunts, uncles, and cousins. As usual, I’m typically in charge of dessert. Over the years, I have made quite a few things, but our favorites tend to involve… Continue reading Labor Day Desserts
While I’m an equal opportunity sangria (and wine for that matter) drinker, I know there are many of you out there who just really do not like red wine and therefore stay away from red sangria. While a little less common than it’s red cousin, white sangria is equally delicious and easy to make! I… Continue reading Drink This: White Sangria
I am a huge fan of having a signature cocktail when I throw parties. While it doesn’t make sense for every party, I do feel it makes the event seem a little bit more special. One cocktail I can’t wait to make the centerpiece of my next party is a sparkling sorbetto.

While I love a good fruity cocktail, I am not a fan of overly sweet drinks. That is why I love this adult fruit smoothie recipe.… Continue reading Drink This: Adult Fruit Smoothie
With last weekend’s summer-like weather, I was able to break out my patio furniture and fire up the grill for the first time this year. Nothing says summer like a fruity cocktail, so I decided this would be the perfect chance to try out my new Vodka Zinger drink infuser and the J. Potts White Whiskey I… Continue reading Drink This: White Whiskey Lemonade
I don’t know about you, but for me nothing is better on a hot summer day than a cold glass of sangria. I’ve been making sangria for a few years now, and I always get asked by my friends what I put in it. My secret is to keep it simple and let the fruit and… Continue reading Drink This: Red Sangria
If you are anything like me, Tequila Rose has always intrigued you with its mysterious black bottle. It took me a while to finally come up with a use to justify buying this strawberry tequila cream liquor, but it was well worth the wait. So what inspired me to finally pick up a bottle? My… Continue reading Tequila Rose Inspired Cocktails: Pudding Shots
