Bourbon Brine Coffee Rubbed Turkey…and a Giveaway

Bourbon, Coffee, and Turkey.  Sounds like a delicious nap waiting to happen, don’t you think? All good things.  Bourbon is so flavorful, soothing, and people put it in their coffee (smart people, anyway) and both bourbon AND coffee SHOULD be a part of your Thanksgiving turkey prepping plans. I said so. So, turkey prepping needs […]

How To: The Perfect Turkey

perfect-turkey-coffee-rubbed

My Mom never taught me how to make a turkey. Did yours? Despite the fact that every year in my existence she’s made turkey for Thanksgiving, I was never shown how.  Maybe I never asked, maybe I never cared, maybe she was so busy prepping a meal for 50 that showing a child the tricks […]

Thanksgiving Desserts

I’m freakishly busy. So busy, in fact, I can’t even make you a dessert. But…worry not, I’ve made LOTS of desserts, and therefore I have LOTS of desserts that will make your Thanksgiving dinner delicious. Truth. Let’s start with this Candy Apple Pie. I’ve shared it here several times, and with good reason…it’s incredible.  A […]

I feel kind of special here today. Reynolds – you know – Reynolds, the people who make aluminum foil and such and have access to big foodie brains and labs and professional culinary geniuses – asked ME to make a recipe for them. And a video.  To put on Epicurious. THE Epicurious. Gasp. I’m pretty […]

Cream Cheese Brownie Buttercream

No joke. Cream Cheese Brownie Buttercream. To me, one of the very best brownies is a cream cheese brownie.  Fudgy and tangy and sweet and…not on my diet but, well, maybe it’s on yours.  I also love my version of homemade buttercream, which is made mostly of butter, and umm, cream.  Sugar, butter, cream. So…I […]

I don’t care what anyone says…this drink is crazysauce.  Nay…awesomesauce. I’ve been wanting to do a drink with dry ice for a long time now, so when Dixie Crystals asked me for a spooky cocktail, I knew it was time. Vampire Mist. Sweet. Sassy.  Perfect drink for a Halloween party, or really, any party.  I […]

Sweet Bunny and Chick Round Up!

Okay, okay, it’s more than just bunnies and chicks.  But it’s a fun Easter themed round up, and it’s got some really cute ideas. I really wanted to so a collection with a few things I think would be excellent for carting off to the school party.  It’s tough, being the class mom, but some […]

Who’s ready to get their leprechaun on? Strange, isn’t it?  The way we jump on holidays from other countries, like Ireland, Mexico, China.  I think we just love a good holiday, and a reason to eat and drink crazy concoctions.  On Monday, you’ll see green beer, Irish Car Bombs, Irish Crème will ooze from your […]

Blue Valentine Mojito

blueberry-mojito

Don’t be sad. A Blue Valentine can be a great thing. Not like the movie Blue Valentine, which I still haven’t decided if I love or hate.  It pains me to see Ryan Gosling looking like, well, a normal man, with a receding hairline and glasses.  I can see THAT at Walmart.  I want the […]
