Ham & Parmesan Risotto (Instant Pot or Stove Top)

I love me some Risotto – how ’bout you? It amazes me how you can take a simple ingredient like rice, add a glug of wine & a few gratings of cheese (plus a bit of this and that) and turn it into a gourmet meal – no make that a gourmet experience – because you get to drink the rest of the wine! Plus plus!

Not Your Father’s Root Beer & Bourbon Glazed Ham

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned Not Your Father’s Root Beer on my blog before – see my Dad and I are pretty wild about it and split one every now and then. So when Dad said he’d like a ham, I immediately (and selflessly, I might add) sacrificed a bottle. Of his, of course, lol! (Fyi: plain old root beer will work in this recipe, too.)

I make the same Corned Beef & Cabbage every year. Year after year. It’s that good. But every now and then, I’m up for a bit of a change and this year was it. Even this Grandma wants to be a bit “trendy” once in awhile, if there is such a thing as a “trendy” Corned Beef.

Campbell’s Ultimate Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Hey guys! I’ve been super psyched over my very retro Home-Made Onion Soup Mix. I want to use it in everything. It’s been like a little trip back to the past, only better than I remembered.

Coquito – A Coconut Rum Cocktail

I kind of fell in love with the Coquito recently. Creamy, frothy, coconut deliciousness laced with Rum and touched with Cinnamon.
