Tis the season – for hot chocolate. A double chocolate hot chocolate! Deep. Rich. Dark. Chocolate. Real Chocolate. And Cocoa. With Frozen Whipped Cream. Yeah, you heard me right. Frozen Whipped Cream.
I kind of fell in love with the Coquito recently. Creamy, frothy, coconut deliciousness laced with Rum and touched with Cinnamon.
So Apple Pie Moonshine – I keep seeing photos, and I keep thinking about making it and finally, I got some Everclear. Yeah, Everclear. I try to stay away from that stuff. Something to do with a Scorpions concert at Red Rocks when I was a kid. As a matter of fact, Everclear usually doesn’t even enter my head at all. Not on my radar.
I think I’ve been making Mango Lassis since the first time I ate at an Indian restaurant! What, we need a recipe? Maybe not, but here’s how I make mine.
You know what I love? Smoothies. And probably you do, too? But what I don’t love? Putzing with them. Adding a bit of this or that, trying to get them thick and luscious but still sippable through a straw.
Do you ever come across a recipe in a magazine that sounds SOOOO crazy you just know it has to be either completely amazing or an absolute boo hiss? This is one of those crazy recipes that amazes!
Sometimes you just don’t need a lot of words…the photos speak for themselves! But here’s a great little “recipe” for an overnight Bloody Mary. Perfect for a brunch, it can be jazzed up as you wish, but as it stands, most people will enjoy it – that equals to not too hot, but flavorful, or a great starting point, depending on tastes!
I only know it’s Spring coz I see all recipes out there – asparagus, artichokes, spring peas. *sighs* See, that’s snow outside my window. Better yet, that’s Warm Mulled Cider, inside.
Bailey’s Irish Cream. I still remember my first taste. I was barely legal but didn’t have my licence with me, but I was with my folks, and my Dad, his wife, and their friends vouched for me. That probably doesn’t happen nowadays! They just really thought I should try Bailey’s. I agree, and think everyone should, and why not now, with St. Paddy’s day around the corner?
You might have noticed I don’t like waste and I like to avoid additives. That doesn’t mean I don’t like a little indulgence now and then – like a little whipped cream on a latte or hot chocolate.
