Halloween Cocktail…Vampire Mist

vampire-mist-1

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 […]

St. Patrick’s Day Potato Candy with Salted Caramel and Chocolate Filling

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

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 […]

Red Velvet Mug Cake

I bet you couldn’t guess it’s February, could you? I mean, look around the internet.  Can you blink without seeing a new Red Velvet concoction?  I know I can’t.  And, just like that new Miley song on the radio that you hate at first, the more you hear it, the more it grows on you, […]

Macadamia and White Chocolate Chip Cookies for a Cookie Exchange…and A Giveaway!

Have you even done a search for holiday cookies recently? Don’t.  Just, don’t.  It’s overwhelming, and you’ll likely find yourself immersed in sugary concoctions on Pinterest, which will start with gingerbread cookies, then ginger recipes, then red hair shades, then you’ll drive 3 hours to have colorful stripes put into your hair because Pinterest thought […]

Rum Eggnog Cheesecake

rum-eggnog-cheesecake

More eggnog. More dessert. More rum. Welcome to the holidays. There are a lot of desserts that have already been eaten, and plenty of desserts yet to be consumed. This Rum Eggnog Cheesecake should be one of those things. Yes, you can make this in a standard springform pan, as the recipe is written, but […]
