Strawberry Basil Lemonade

Strawberry Basil Lemonade

It’s been an incredibly long time since I’ve posted anything. Life just got busy. Currently I have 30 drafts of recipes that we made before this slump occurred, so it’s not for a lack of having something to write about or creativity, but writing for “fun” was really the last thing on my mind. Between…

Horchata

Horchata

Horchata is one of my favorite things ever to drink thanks to its cinnamon flavor. Reading this blog post on horchata, I found a recipe to make an authentic horchata and learned some new facts about this sweet drink in the process. For example even though the drink tastes like it is made with dairy…

Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer

Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer

With the leftover pumpkin puree from the pumpkin pie bagels, I made pumpkin spice creamer to accompany our morning cup of joe. I told you yesterday, I was in full pumpkin obsession mode. Homemade coffee creamer is easy to make with half-and-half and sweetened condensed milk. For everyone’s favorite fall flavor, all you have to…

S’mores Banana Milkshake

S’mores Banana Milkshake

The latest version of my healthy milkshake that I’ve been making involves all the flavors of s’mores. I figured I might as well use up all of the graham crackers I have in the kitchen as well as those delicious smoked chocolate chips I’ve gushed about on here for so long. Not the most exciting…

Rosemary Lemonade

Rosemary Lemonade

I am totally smitten with the idea of adding herbs to lemonade. In the recent weeks I’ve sampled both mint and rosemary lemonade at different restaurants, and now I will never hesitate to order an herbaceous lemonade. Out of all of our herbs (that sadly do not get enough of our attenion…it’s all going to…

Blue Banana Smoothie

Blue Banana Smoothie

When making smoothies at home, we were in a bit of a rut. We always mixed yogurt with bananas and some variation of berries or maybe mango if we were feeling a little adventurous and wanted to go tropical. I was a little tired of smoothies, truth be told. Until I ordered the Blue Banana…

Healthy Peanut Butter and Jelly Milkshake

Healthy Peanut Butter and Jelly Milkshake

Why eat a boring peanut butter sandwich for lunch when you can instead drink a peanut butter sandwich in cool liquid form? That sounds a tad gross now that I think of it. That question makes it sound like I put a sandwich in the blender with some ice cubes. Not the case. It’s a…

Healthy Milkshake

Healthy Milkshake

Our apartment in Washington gets hot during the summer. All we have are stand fans that don’t do a great job of circulating air (I know… no air conditioning is crazy to a Texan), so it gets really stagnant during the day. If I could I would eat ice cream and milkshakes all day to…

Fruity Cereal Milk

Fruity Cereal Milk

Although Dustin and I are both excited about our upcoming move, both of us are to some degree a little disappointed we won’t be living in New York City. I think the top reasons are bagels, Reubens from Katz’s Deli, and Momofuku Milk Bar. Everything I’ve made so far from the Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook…

We’ll keep you…
