Chilled Pineapple Apple Cider

Chilled Pineapple Apple Cider

I love me some pineapple. I could eat an entire pineapple in one sitting, and definitely have before (usually over the sink, with juice dripping off my elbows.) Unfortunately I’m allergic to pineapple, so escapades like this usually end up with me moaning for hours about my burning tongue. (Good thing the stuff doesn’t close

Do any of your husbands constantly watch really boring Japanese movies from the 60s? Well. Count your blessings. Eric is in charge of our Netflix account. I suppose I could go in and change what movie is being mailed to us next, but I rarely think about it. So I browse Pinterest while he watches

Happy late Cinco de Mayo! I know I am posting this a day late, but honestly, Horchata is a good choice any day of the year. My friend Angie and I threw a baby shower for our friend Sarah on Saturday. It was a Cuatro de Mayo party since we were a day early. It

Ain’t nothin’ better than an Italian Cream Soda. Oh wait, yeah there is…a Strawberry Rhubarb Italian Cream Soda. Boom. Rhubarb ameliorates everything. Maybe now that I’m moving to California I can grow me some rhubarb. Although I’m pretty sure rhubarb grows even in Utah…what I mean is now that I’m moving maybe I’ll become the

Don’t you love giving all of your imminent responsibilities the finger and taking a weekend getaway? Oh wait. Except that I’m a stay-at-home-mom and my primary responsibility is taking care of my kids…here’s where that analogy falls apart.

Eric’s sister Jessie is visiting this week for the holidays. Eric is at work all day, so she is at home with me and the kids. I keep worrying that she is bored, even though she has assured me that she’s not, like any good sister-in-law would do. Today our ancient stereo was malfunctioning; the

But I’ve changed my ways. Snootified my life, you could say. I’ve even started wearing polo shirts. Just kidding. But I’m telling you, Basil Lemonade is where it’s at. The lemonade is perfect on it’s own (feel free to omit the basil if you want to Rage Against The Prep.) The secret’s in the syrup.

I walked into our bedroom yesterday to find Eric going through the drawer of his nightstand. He had already dumped everything out and was starting to refill it with “keeper” items: “Eric why do you need your old company directory, you don’t even work there anymore.” Fine, throw it out. “Seriously? That’s all it takes

Vanilla Bean Horchata

Vanilla Bean Horchata
Posted in : Drinks on by : admin

Horchata is a creamy beverage made from rice and spiced with cinnamon and vanilla. Sounds weird, but I swear it’s delicious, especially when paired with spicy Mexican food! Last weekend my brother Nathan and I decided to have a Steak, Shake, and Movie night. So we went to the store to buy steaks and ice cream
