The smoker was on duty for some meatloaf (I can do a separate blog post about that later!) and figured why not pop on some simple syrup and see what happens. I have some lessons learned, but overall the result wasContinue reading “Smoky Margarita”
When I tell you I love sauces, I LOVE sauces. But this one is in my top 3 favorite sauces. It’s amazing on tacos, sandwiches, bowls, seafood…all. the. things. You can whip it up in 5 minutes and it stores in the fridge for at least a month. I’m obsessed! Here’s what you need: 1Continue reading “Chipotle Lime Aioli”

Tonight I was in the mood for more than just a beer. Enter the Michelada! What you need: 12 oz beer (youContinue reading “Spicy Michelada”
The brussels sprout (Yes, it’s actually brusselS sprouts with an S on the end). Such a divisive vegetable amongst people. I think it’s one of those veggies that you either love or hate. I used to be a hater. My dad was not a fan, so we NEVER ate them at home growing up. AndContinue reading “Roasted Brussels Sprouts”

This is a super fun twist on the standard vodka soda. Freeze your favorite fruit juice in ice trays and make this simple cocktail something special! I love this hack with fruit juice. Use bottled or fresh and this prolongs the life of your juice. Plus, you can use these cubes in all sorts ofContinue reading “Frozen Fruity Vodka Soda”

The latest trendy cocktail is also one of the easiest to remember. I call my version the 1,2,3 Aperol Spritz. Here’s why… All you need to remember is: 1 part club soda 2 parts Aperol 3 parts Prosecco Fill a large wine glass with ice, and pour in your 1,2,3. Do a quick stir andContinue reading “1,2,3 Aperol Spritz”
Here’s a hot tip: Not everything has to be homemade! You can still get creative and make things easy on yourself. That is where this crab cake sandwich idea came from.
