cold-brewed strawberry orange tea

I’ve got strawberry fever and the cure is to put them in EVERYTHING! This fruit-infused tea is a refreshing and summery Memorial Day treat well worth the 24 hour wait! Cold-brewed fruit-infused tea is great for using up all the weird tea left behind by our visiting parents.  They buy different tea each visit yet never drink it because they …

Watermelon Agua Fresca

I’ve written it before and I’ll write it again, my favorite Mexican restaurant in Nashville is Mas Tacos Por Favor.  I bucked up last week and waited 30 minutes in the roast pork scented lunch line (worth it) for my carnitas tacos and tortilla soup and found them serving up a special summer treat: watermelon agua fresca. …

Vanilla Cupcakes

It’s my first mother’s day tomorrow and I’m psyched! Psyched for promised pancakes to be made my husband, psyched to go to my good friend’s house for homemade pizza, and psyched for my little guy finally feeling good after being sick for a week.

Cranberry Sauce!

BA’s June Cover: Cherry Pie

Last month Bon Appétit didn’t have a recipe on the cover (harrumph!).  Their May travel issue pictured some beautiful waiter from another country. But this month, June, it’s a beautiful-looking cherry pie.  (Cue the horrible Warrant song, as it’s been running through my head ALL AFTERNOON.)  I really am not a hot fruit type of person. …

Pineapple Coconut Smoothie

I must miss the tropical paradise of St. Martin just a wee bit, because I have seriously been craving Caribbean pineapple coconut drinks!  With a forecasted low in the 30’s tomorrow morning, I’m hoping it’s possible to will Spring to arrive faster if I have a tropical drink in my hand.  When I first made this …
